Peptalks Mini

IMG_8665

The week after Noelle was born — the week Rust was home — I was actually pretty productive. I made this tiny, tiny mini (2.5×2.5 inches)because I wanted to remember little “peptalks” to tell myself whenever Rust left me alone all day and went back to work. : )

I think I just need to have some sort of crafty project to work out as an outlet, especially in times of major transition. And adding a little one to your life is a major transition! I really enjoyed making this. I made this in Elements, adding photos & stamps to the little pages. The base for the pages free online graph paper you can make & download here — seriously, so cool!

The fonts I used for this: Bandung Hardcore, Capture It, Cheri, Crass, Datura, Love Letter TW, and Birth of a Hero. {Hi, I love type fonts.}

I also printed out & cut to size some blank pages so I could add more inspiring drops of wisdom as I thought of them. : )

{I will say, for Anna the statement “The first five weeks are the hardest,” was true. But for Noelle…it felt like week 5-6 were super hard, week 7 & 8 has been wonderful, and I’m hoping week 9 will be even better!}
