Last Minute Must Haves this Christmas!

We love to promote a friends' business, especially when it is a friend from high school, C. Milton Wright!! Tara Rose created her own etsy shop, TZ Burps, and designs owls, birds, hairclips, bibs, burp clothes and wet bags, all with designs inspired by her own 3 year old daughter, Emma. We recently hosted a Holiday Open House and Tara sold her unique gifts and of course my daughter couldn't leave without her own fleece owl for her bedroom.

Tara's designs are fun, make a great gift and best of all, affordable!! Check out her etsy page and support another local Baltimore area business! Click on the link above to find TZ Burps on etsy.

And of course, it would not be a Tu Vida blog post if we didn't remind you that we are still taking Christmas orders until Wednesday, December 15th. We have just added the last of our Fall/Winter inventory to our etsy page and everything is on SALE. 15% off everything in our store plus some pieces are already marked down! Enjoy!!

Wishing everything a fun Holiday Season!

Announcing Adan Orlando Ramirez

We apoligize for the lack of blog posts for the past several months! There have been a lot of transitions with our personal lives and thus as we have been busy growing our families!
Katie is happy to welcome Adan Orlando Ramirez into her family. He was born on September 8, 2010 at 6:17 am, weighing in at 6 lbs, 13 oz and 21 inches long. Big sister Elena is loving her new little brother and mom and dad are adjusting to life with 2 kids!
Equaling exciting, Melissa is 6 months pregnant and will be giving birth to her second baby boy on January 24, 2011. Melissa is feeling great and Julian is excited to meet his little brother in 3 short months!

As our families grow, Melissa and I continue to transition our business with our changing lives. We continue to work with Baltimore area brides to create custom jewelry and stationery designs. More blogs to come with some new bridal designs and featuring an upcoming October wedding, in which we designed everything from invitations, to bridesmaid jewelry to programs and placecards.

For obvious reasons, our jewelry line is continuing to expand to include new initial jewelry, making great gifts for new moms! I created the necklace in the picture above while waiting for my baby Adan to arrive. It is featured on our etsy page, As seen above, Adan is modeling the necklace in this exquisite photo taken by Lindsay Parks Photography. She is an amazing Harford County based photographer and I would highly recommend her for your newborn, baby or family pictures.

In honor of my son's birth and the creation of our newest initial necklace, we are offering 25% off all initial jewelry between now and December 1, 2010. Simply go to and pick the initial piece of your choice. Go to check out as normal and put "baby love" in the message to seller. If paying via PayPal, go through check out but do not pay. I will send you a revised invoice to reflect the discount and email it to you for payment. If paying via check, I will email you a revised total for payment. THINK HOLIDAY GIFTS!!!

We want to thank all of our loyal clients for supporting our business and bearing with us as we deal with the the growing pains of juggling business and family!
