Fun Baby Projects for Xyron

by jessicaturner on August 19, 2008

Two weeks ago in my creative surge post I mentioned that I was working on some baby projects for Xyron

Another project I created for Xyron is a sign that says “milk time.” I will be pumping two-three times a day at work and plan to hang this little sign on my office door when I need to not be disturbed. It seriously took less than 15 minutes (I used the 510 for this, one of my favorite machines yron makes. Seriously, get yourself a Michaels or JoAnns coupon for 40% off and buy this! It makes altering and scrapbooking projects go so quickly!) and it is soooo cute! The patterned paper is Love, Elsie and the sign itself is Creative Imaginations.

Someone asked in my recent comments what kind of camera I use. I have the Canon Rebel XT, which is a SLR. I LOVE it. Matthew surprised me with it two Christmases ago and I cried my eyes out because I was so shocked and excited. It was worth every penny. I am STILL learning about all its settings, so I take a lot of pictures experimenting with things. Here’s a shot I took of Matthew and Elias a few nights ago, snuggling on our couch. I had the ISO up a little too high, which is why it is a bit grainy, but I still love it. I’m okay with my photos not all being perfect – it is part of the experience and at the end of the day, I am grateful that the memory is captured.

I’m so jealous you have an office door! It’s months and months away (being only 4 months pregnant now), but I’m already trying to figure out how/where I’m going to pump at work. Any tips, anyone?

Hey Jessica – I have no baby advice for you, but have you ever thought about buying a different lens for your camera? Canon makes a 50mm f/1.8 that is pretty cheap — and would work wonders in low-light situations (then you wouldn’t have the constant ISO battle). 😀

beautiful work! Adorable photo!

LOVE the shadow box! And is it really a box….it looks like a tray. Ingenius I tell you!

Oh, and I think Elias will be more than content looking at all the strangers on the plane – this is a GREAT age to travel….minus the having to breast feed next to a stranger that is.

Very cute projects! Do you happen to work in an office with mainly females? Cause where I work, if I put a sign up like that there would be jokes flying all over the office (cause I work with mainly males.)

And to Jessica – is there someone at your work who has an office with a door that wouldn’t mind letting you use it a few times a day? Or maybe a conference room or storage closet? Not ideal I’m sure but it’s something.

I’m a new reader. Let me say..I love your blog. You have a cute little family. I LOVE your son’s name. I love to scrapbook and take pictures as much as you do. I have a question for you…where do you develop your pics at? I have used snapfish in the past and am looking around for other’s advice!


Jessica Turner August 21, 2008 at 11:52 pm

I work in an office of mostly females and I have my own door to my office, so the sign/pumping should not be a problem.

I develop my pictures mostly through snapfish/walgreens on matte paper. I have a photo printer, but it needs ink, lol, so I don’t use it very much right now. Guess I should get on that.
