i bought everything i needed to make rosie's birth announcements the first week she was born. but actually making them was kind of impossible. i set so many goals on timing - before she was 6 weeks, before 3 months, by thanksgiving - but still they sat. finally i made it happen with luke's help, only because i couldn't imagine getting into Christmas cards when i'd had these on my mind for months. they went out in mid december. :)
i didn't order her a stamp like i did with mateo and ruby - ruby's stamp was the last one the artist ever made, and she made it for us for free to celebrate her retirement from stamp-making. i wanted to add something to the envelope, so i chopped the bottom off a bunch of celery and the kids helped me stamp a celery rose onto each envelope.
