Sharing recipes, crafts and frugal living, the challenges and triumphs of parenting a neurotypical child and a child on the Autism Spectrum. Yoga Instructor said goodbye to her nightly glass of Chardonnay to give up habits that were not serving her purpose in life! The CocktailMom name remains, however with a new focus on healthy and authentic living.


Gini's Birthday Tag Book

At my Mother-in-law's party I snapped a few shots of guests, not as many as I had hoped but I was on kid duty while Jon played bartender so my focus was split. I combined the pictures with the responses on the RSVP tags and with a binder clip made a tag book. Still such a fan of these, see here and here. If you missed the invites here is that post.
The picture on the cover is recycled from a birthday card I received. I loved the stitching on it that I couldn't see it just thrown in the recycling bin. I was inspired by a post by Ali Edwards, which I now can't find, but in the post she talked about creating a layout or book that is totally opposite of the way you normally create. Normally my layouts are all very organized, color coordinated and I don't know..just so. With this book I added embellishments on the ring that just float around, like the G in the second picture. Also the pages are different sizes, the tags are all the same but some people sent a separate paper with a letter to Gini so I created pockets for them to be stored in and those are larger than the tags. Coordinated ribbon finishes it off. And in the mail it goes.

This is really a wonderful gift to remember a special Birthday.
I know Ginni will treasure this.
