Pretty in Pink


My Sweet Princess. Isn't she beautiful?


Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
-Ephesians 1:3


For this child I prayed; and the LORD has given me my petition which I asked of him.
-1 Samuel 1:
27

I will shout for joy and sing Your praises, for You have redeemed me.

-Psalms 71:23

"Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus"

-1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

God has truly blessed me with this beautiful Princess. I am so thankful for this miracle I can call Mei Mei. I can't wait until the day I can play with Anna Grace and Andrew at the same time and even better to watch them play together!!



Have a GREAT week!


(*I took all of the pictures except for the one of Anna Grace and I; My friend, Berkley took it (:*)

Ok so it has been 2 years since we brought Anna Grace home and I have finally done a video for her! This is pretty rough draft. Hope you enjoy it!

Princess Blog Designs

As most of you know I design my own blog and have a blog designing website. When we started the adoption for Andrew I wanted to find a way to raise money to help bring him home. I thought this would be the perfect way to do it too! I am offering many things other than blog designs. Here are my prices and pictures of things I have already designed.





1st timers- $30- You will get a personalized header, background, and you can have sidebar pictures (3 is what is included. to add more it is $2 for each additional picture).


Returners- $25- I will redo your blog like you had it before with a new header and background






Signatures- $5- This will be a signature at the bottom of your posts that will match your design



Photoshopping- $5- I can do almost anything to a picture and make it look great! (adding special things to your photos (enhancing them- b/w- Sepia- etc.) and doing about anything you ask for.)





Collages- $10- Pretty much scrapbook pages online that can easily be printed out!! These are great for almost anything! (sizes can be 12x12/ 8.5x11/4x6/5x7/if you need a different size just let me know :] ) I do most of my pictures of Anna Grace in collages like this.


Birth, Adoption, Christmas, and Birthday Announcements- $15- I will design an announcement with your pictures and wording on it. I will email you the design and it can be printed out easily. Just like the collages. (:

If you want a design you will email me first @ princessblogs@yahoo.com. Then you will tell me what you want and I will make your blog look magical! Same goes with photoshopping and collages. :) Once you are pleased with your design, you can make payment through PayPal (As for paypal make it payable to mommieofaa@yahoo.com- this is my mom's account so that she can help keep up with my designs)
