Birth Announcements

Scrapless Press
I recently ordered the most adorable photo birth announcements and wanted to share this wonderful company I discovered. Scrapless Press is a family run, California business that offers "scrapbook style" baby announcements, birthday invitations and more. I have received so many compliments on my unique birth announcements and was so pleased with the final product. I know where I'll be going when I need to order birthday invitations in September. Their unique design process gives the cards a handmade, multi-dimensional and realistic look.








The Process
Scrapless Press will digitally merge your image with their Scrapbook Style designs to create a photo card that is hand-mounted on white card stock for a finished look. The result is a stunning photo card that will have your friends and family talking! Scrapless Press offers both folding and non-folding styles at affordable prices. Check out their graduation announcements, invitations, birth announcements, holiday cards and other designs.















About Scrapless Press
Scrapless Press is a family run operation out of Orange County, California. Jason and Sheri Ingram are husband and wife team. Their combined talents for photo manipulation and artistic flair are the driving forces behind Scrapless Press. Quality and customer satisfaction are always given the highest priority at Scrapless Press.

You can connect with Scrapless Press on FaceBook, Twitter or their blog.

Shrinkx Hips Giveaway

Shrinkx Hips Giveaway
I wanted to share a new product I'm testing out.  It's a "hip shrinking belt" by Shrinkx Hips and it will help reduce the size of your hips after pregnancy and delivery.  I'm all over a product that will help me regain my pre-pregnancy body so I'm very excited to test out the Shrinkx Hips Belt and share my results with the Fabumom readers.  I'll be blogging about my results and experience at the end of July, watch this space...

Here's more info on Shrinkx Hips:  (From Upspringbaby.com)

PROBLEM
Many women experience wider hips after pregnancy.

SOLUTION
The Shrinkx Hips belt works thanks to the hormone Relaxin, which loosens pelvic joints & ligaments for childbirth. Relaxin then stays in your system up to 8 weeks before joints and ligaments harden in place. Wearing the Shrinkx Hips belt during this time gives you the opportunity to permanently narrow your hips.

ABOUT SHRINKX HIPS
The Shrinkx Hips Belt Provides constant, even pressure to gently guide your hips back to their pre-pregnancy position

Must be worn in the first 8 weeks after delivery for best results.

Shrinkx Hips is easily worn under or over your clothing.

Is comfortable and made of soft Nylon & Spandex materials.

Shrinkx Hips is exclusively designed with multiple levels of compression so you can control the amount of pressure on your hips & work towards the best possible results.

Keepsake Pendant Giveaway

The Pretty Peacock
We are very excited about our latest Fabumom giveaway.  The Pretty Peacock offers customized jewelry made with the highest quality materials.  Each piece of jewelry is designed and created with great care, pride and lots of good juju!  I was given the chance to review the  Circle of Love Pendants and can't tell you how pleased I am with this beautiful piece of jewelry.  Each heavy gauge, sterling silver disc (1/2" in diameter) is hand stamped along the curve of the circle and slightly domed for character.  I chose to have my daughters names hand-stamped, and am so pleased with the final product!  The attached birthstones make a beautiful adornment to this personalized piece.  I've only had this necklace a few weeks and have already received so many compliments.  I've mentioned before how much I love personalized jewelry and the Pretty Peacock has turned jewelry making into art form.   You will be able to feel the difference.  Check out the Pretty Peacock for meaningful and emotion evoking jewelry.

New Baby




The New Addition
Born June 1st, 2010
Ryleigh is here!  I have a beautiful, brand-new baby girl.  My second born arrived on Tuesday, June 1st, 2010 (she was two weeks early). Ryleigh weighed 8 Pounds 8 oz and was 20 1/2 inches long.  We are doing great and adjusting to our new lifestyle wonderfully. Everyone is happy and healthy.














My three year old daughter (Skylar) loves being a big sister.


















The delivery went well and we were able to come home after just one night in the hospital.






















Thank you to everyone for all of your well wishes and continued support of the Fabumom Blog! Watch this space for more adventures as I journey further into motherhood. My heart is full of joy and I'm so excited to begin this next chapter of my life...I love my girls!
