What are Pinkle Toes?

You may (or may not have) noticed that I have been slacking on the blog, Twitter and social media in general. "But why, Michele?" you ask with baited breath. Well, aside from the job, 3 kids and managing a household, my wood photo block business on Etsy absolutely blew up in March. And I mean that in a good way. Thanks to Sassy Designs and Maternal Lens having promotions in early March, I have completed around 180 photo blocks (and currently am working on 80 more.) If that does not sound like a lot-look back at the tutorial and refresh your memory on how much work goes into making these blocks. I am literally working morning, noon and (late) night on these buggers.

One of the best parts is seeing all the gorgeous photography and cute babies. I love me some cute babies- and I have seen a lot these past few weeks. I'd love to share them all with you, but when someone is kind enough to entrust me with their personal photos- I don't want to invade their space and ask to share them publicly... until now.

When I was putting together an order for Michele from Pinkle Toes Photography, I just could not resist asking her if I could share them on my blog because her photos were so fantastic. The children were absolutely adorable and then her eye in her photography was just breathtaking. And she was nice enough to let me share these with you...

And she chose just the right papers for the blocks, so that they came together beautifully.
And she had another set with fun, vibrant colors that I am sure her client is going to adore...
If you are in or around the Austin, Texas area, you really should check her out. I adore her maternity, baby and children's photos.

Oh, and if you are thinking these blocks are a great Mother's Day gift (because they are) please consider ordering soon. I have a feeling these are going to be popular for mommas.


  1. My word - those ARE gorgeous!! I was looking at scrap book paper the other day trying to find something boyish enough to make some for my boys room!!

  2. They are gorgeous!

    Hmmm...maybe I'll put an order for my mom.

    And, what a fun idea for a new mom as a gift.

  3. You know me... I love to craft (terrariums)... with all of my {{ahem}} free time.

    I wanted to make some of these blocks... {{ahem}}... with all of my free time... but that never happened. SURPRISE - not!

    I am BEYOND shocked and amazed that you have made so many! You go girl!

    I might have to order some... after the new baby is born and we have our complete family.

    Keep up the good work!

  4. These are just beautiful! Congrats on all of your sales! :)

  5. those are spectacular! Her photo supplies and your mad skills worked so well together on this project
