Bikes and Boys..

This is what I am surrounded by... daily.
I have a husband, 3 boys, and Kenny.  All boys- all love their bikes. You wonder why I need my job? So that I can retain an ounce of femininity, that's why.
Unfortunately, when it comes to digital layouts, I am restricted to boy stuff, this can be hard to find. Girls are just so much more, dare I say... diverse? Believe me, I know. I hung onto my Gap, inc. job for 10 years, thinking that someday the employee discount would pay off and I could dress my little girl in the endless dresses and coordinating accessories... I still have the dresses, in a bin.


Here is my youngest little monster- Ryder. He thinks he is pretty cool on his bike.


Sometimes I try to keep up with Jon, that counts for something right?

 And then there is Kenny, owner of Persnickety Prints, his bike is his wife- I mean, life.
(besides printing the best digital scrapbook layouts in the world!)
Kenny races his bike- alot. He also is kind enough to help out with my little Cub Scout group. He tuned all of their bikes and taught bike safety:) 
I did just notice that none of them have helmets on, hmmm.
Anyway, welcome to my life.

I needed a biking kit... so I made one.



  1. how beautiful! Thank you so much!

  2. This is great! Perfect for my little guys! Good for you getting out there on yours!

  3. Wonderful... thank you so much

  4. Oh Chari! You are an uber talented designer! Thanks for the great kit. It will come in handy for my son.

  5. Just a quick note to let you know that a link to this post will be placed on CraftCrave in the DigiFree category today [27 Feb 12:00am GMT]. Thanks, Maria

  6. I don't do Facebook, but I LOVE your kit. Is there any way I can download it? Thanks.

  7. Anonymous- shoot us an email to info@persnicketyprints.com and we can see about sending you a special link- assuming that of course you tell all of your friends how awesome your Persnickety Prints are!? We would rather you "pay" with a tweet or a "like" than charge you for these kits.

  8. Thanks for the offer, my son let me use his Facebook account to "like" and I downloaded the kit. He, and my husband, ride in the 2-day MS150 from Houston to Austin each April (this will be my husband's 9th and my son's 3rd time), so the kit is perfect. I have already told some friends about Persnickety Prints. It is great!

  9. Forgot to mention earlier, we really love the biketypo.png
    We all thought it was the perfect thing. Thanks again!

  10. Hi Chari! I have three boys too and can so relate to your post. I just love this kit!! Will it be available for purchase? Amanda

  11. I really love this kit! Will it ever be available to download again?

  12. We will re-release this Kit again soon! (most likely as a free download- to support our customers- so order your prints through Persnickety!)
