Mojo Mommy

Pin It Today I'm part of a very special Blog Hop.  Hopefully you came here from sweet Debbie Carriere.  If not, you can find the whole Blog Hop List on Teresa's Blog

Not only is it Mojo Monday, but we're surprising Julee to help welcome her twin boys!!  Julee is such a special person.  A true sweetheart.  I have LOVED working with her for the past 5 years and when she broke the news that she was expecting, I squealed!  I cannot be happier for her.  I am so very excited for her to become a mommy!!
We all used this week's Mojo Sketch to create a card for Julee and to offer her a few words of advice on being a new mom.  My advice would be to enjoy all those little moments.  Babies grow SO fast.  Snuggle with them whenever you can.  Smell them, squeeze their little fingers and toes.  Those first months are not always easy, and I can't imagine what it's like with two at the same time, but know that those times won't last forever.  Eventually you WILL get to sleep through the night.  :) Nap when they nap.  I'm so excited for you to meet your two little sweeties, Julee!  Sending you BIG hugs and much love!


I used the To the Moon set for my card.  I stamped two giraffes for the twins and colored them with Copic markers.  The papers are from the Stomp and Round & Round Collections from My Mind's Eye.  I had to ink up portions of the sentiment separately to make it fit the sentiment panel.  As finishing touches, I added ribbon, stitching around the card and buttons. 

Please stop by to send Julee some love!  The next person on the hop is the fabulous Sankari
