7 Hoodies, 6 Playsets, 5 Burp Cloths, 4 Bibs, 3 Stuffed Cows, 2 Blankets, and A Partridge in a Pear Tree

Our lives are currently in a state of organized chaos (perhaps a little bit less organized than usual) and although we are loving it we also understand our limitations.  With small children, full time careers, and the holidays around the corner we realize that we are running out of time.  So in effort to maintain the small remaining portion of sanity we possess we will be unable to accept any more orders for Christmas.  Any new orders placed will be shipped the first week of January.

 We so hope that you understand our hearts in this.  We were stressed to the max last year, something to be expected we're sure, but this year we really want to be able to enjoy our littles.  We wish each and everyone of you a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!

When the Best of the Barns nominees were named, Crystal (of the famed Crystal Cattle and I am Angus) and I, were so excited about being nominated that we decided a giveaway was in order! 

The winner will receive their choice of a set of custom note cards...

 Or a lovie/binky blanket.  These are great when traveling because the velcro strap keeps everything where it should be.  Instead of on the floorboards (really hard to get to when driving) or underneath the airplane seat (EWWWW!).

So head on over to Crystal.Cattle or Crystal's new FB page and leave us a comment about your favorite Christmas gift EVER.  I am still trying to figure out what mine is....

And while you are at it make sure you check out the  
and VOTE for Purple Banner Designs, Crystal.Cattle, and I am Angus!!

Best of the Barn

AHHHHHH!!  Did you see?  Did you see? 
Purple Banner is up for the first ever Best of the Barn awards in the Best Stock Show Gift Provider! 

That has got to be the coolest thing EVER!  I was out of town at a conference and my sister-in-law texted me the news.  Needless to say I didn't pay much attention after that.  I WAS TOO EXCITED! 

So head on over to and cast your vote!

It's Time to PARTY!!!

My nephew just turned one!  Seeing as he was the reason we launched PBD we had to come up with something extra special to celebrate the occasion!  After thinking and thinking we came up with this...

 Isn't he cute!  I love how his ear tag turned out!  He has cloven hooves and him!

We also thought he needed an "All in the Name" blanket...

The perfect birthday presents don't you think?

The birthday boy and Auntie
  Happy Birthday little man!  We LOVE you!
