It's funny, when I first heard the term, Gender Reveal Party, I thought, hmmm, is that a party for people getting a sex change? I had no idea that it was a term for one of the most special events of our lives....finding out the gender of your new little bundle of joy. I remember when I found out the sex of my second child (we waited for the birth on our first), it was so exciting. And how great would it have been to share that moment with all our friends and family?
Another ambiguous term for gender reveal parties, is Team Green. Again, I would have thought that this would have something to do with the green movement in becoming environmentally friendly, but again, I was wrong. Usually, we choose pink for girls and blue for boys, so green was supposed to be the neutral colour for not knowing the sex of your baby.
I only stumbled upon this term and idea for a baby shower from a fellow Zazzler in the forums who mentioned that this is becoming a popular trend. Definitely an interesting trend. Unfortunately, I won't be having anymore babies, but perhaps I will get to attend one of these parties in the near future.

This was the design that I sent out to my family and friends this year. I had a lot of fun designing this postcard. I love how the picture of the child shows through the ornament, as if it is a part of it. That is my favourite part of this design. However, I also love the stars in the background, the elegant Merry Christmas text, and of course the swirl flowing down around the rolling ornaments.

One of the most unique images I have ever acquired is from a rock face on Lake Matininda in Blind River, Ontario. It's exceptionally special as you can only get to this location by boat. There are mountainous tree filled ledges and the odd tree growing out of the rock face. I'm amazed that these trees can grow so big with so little soil. The lake is amazingly blue and clean. But my favourite part is the amazing rocks from that remote rock ledge. They have incredible colour. There are purple greys and teal blues, with bits of beige brown. The colours swirl together to make an incredible, natural texture. This great natural design makes the most amazing business cards that really stand out. Here are a few of my favourites. Notice how the last one has different colours. It is the same image, but the colours have been altered to make a cool grunge effect.
