The end of an era

Long before the inception of Fancy Fonts, I was approached by a former co-worker with a business opportunity.  I had been a stay-at-home mom for about 8 months when Alex proposed I watch his newborn when his wife went back to work.  My arm didn't take much twisting, and I have been babysitting for the Siyufy's ever since!  That was 3 1/2 years ago, and I've seen this family earn promotions, take new jobs, buy a new house, have a new baby, and announce they're expecting yet another baby.  I have become great friends with Alex's wife, Mindy, and our children get along more like brothers and sisters (to a fault sometimes!).  The Siyufy's are starting an exciting new chapter in their lives, moving across the state for Alex to pursue what seems to be the career opportunity of a lifetime.  I will miss them all dearly (especially this baby girl I'll just have to wait a while to meet!), and I wish them the best of luck in their new home.  To send them off, I made each of the kids (including Miss Chloe, whose arrival isn't expected until March) a personalized plate and bowl set, so they can remember the Psimases at each and every meal.  Good luck, Siyufy's!

A very girly plate set for the future princess of the Siyufy house!

Like what you see?  As far as I know, the kids are not for sale (yet), but you can place an order for these plate sets or any other gifts and services I offer by emailing me at karen.psimas@yahoo.com or messaging me on Facebook.  The above sets are $15 each, which include one plate, one bowl, and one personalized insert for each.  Additional inserts for different seasons, holidays, etc. can be purchased for $1 each.  

Don't forget that every penny earned from now until February 5th will go toward my fundraising efforts for this year's Polar Plunge, which raises money for Special Olympics Virginia.  It's a great, albeit FRIGID, cause, and anything you can contribute is much appreciated.  Donations can also be made on my secure fundraising website at www.firstgiving.com/karenpsimas.  THANK YOU!!!

One last thing...Fancy Fonts is now included in the business directory of Macaroni Kid Virginia Beach, a local e-newsletter chock-full of events and information for local families.  Subscribe today by going to www.virginiabeach.macaronikid.com...it's completely free and there are weekly giveaways from local businesses.  Pretty sweet, huh?
