Me Too

I have two kids. Their names are Hudson and Me Too. 

Do you have a "Me Too" at your house? It's the hot new phrase around here. A close second to "MINE!" 

Going to the garage to throw in some laundry? "Me too! Me too!"
Getting out of the car? "Me too, Me too!"
Brushing your teeth? "Me too, Me too!"
Homework time? "Me too, Me too!"

Only problem...when Me Too's little brother arrives, what are we going to call him? 
Me Too, Two? or Me Three

P.S. When Me Too wants to paint, the best solution I've found is vanilla yogurt + food coloring. Not so stressful when it ends up smeared all over her face.

52 Weeks of Mail

Do you remember the last handwritten letter or postcard you received? I don't. 

That's why I'm so excited to participate in 52 Weeks of Mail. It's all about sending cards and letters to loved ones and, as a result, making people happy. I always mean to send more cards and letters, but it always gets shoved to the bottom of my "to-do" list. For some reason, making a project out of it makes it a little more exciting.

If you'd like to participate, check out 52 Weeks of Mail on facebook. It's so exciting...there's currently over 1000 participants worldwide. The project started yesterday, on World Post Day. It will run through October 7, 2012. Here are links to a printable notecard, blog buttons, and postage stamp designs to help spread the word. Can't think of 52 people to send mail to? No problem. Check out to find some pen pals.

Also, through the month of October, I'll be offering a 10% discount on all the greeting cards in my shop with the promo code 52WEEKS).

Silhouette Cards

If you ask me, it's never to early to start preparing for the holidays. Although, I'm usually the one scrambling around at the very last minute. I really should take my own advice, practice what I preach, etc. etc. But I've recently started working on some holiday orders for some of my favorite customers and it's forced me to at least acknowledge that the holidays are coming.

Here's our family's card from last year. With Bryce's crazy schedule, it's nearly impossible to get us all together for a family photo. And when it's light outside? Forget it. So this was my solution. I heard so many great things about our cards last year that I decided to add them to my shop. The listing is for a custom card design only. I send you the file and you can print it wherever you'd like. Costco, anyone? Or I can always print them for you. But I like to cut a few corners with expenses during the holiday season.

Now I gotta stop talking about Christmas and think about Halloween. I've got a birthday party to plan, you know.
