    the care of a card {paperless post}

    This post was written in partnership with Paperless Post in collaboration with Anagram Interactive. I was compensated with coins for my virtual cards but my thoughts and review are my own. To me, there is just something about a person taking the time to send a card – whether virtual or in person. The person took the time to pick out a card for me, write a nice note and send it. It brings me such joy to receive cards with a thoughtful message. I truly feel that sending a card is a lost art. In this world of social media a lot of people take to leaving a quick facebook…

    Influence Conference Recap

    This was my second year attending the Influence Conference and I was so excited to go and to learn what my influence can be in various aspects of my life (but focusing on my online influence).

While my head is swimming and my heart is full of good things that now…

Gone are the days of going out for ice cream or a movie at 9pm, because now it’s after bedtime. Gone are the days of randomly going here or there or wherever I wanted. Now the days are filled with coordinating schedules to make sure someone is home to get the…

    handmade & vintage market 2013

    Oh boy, was this weekend fun! We had no idea what to expect with it being our first year in a public place with vendors that we didn’t necessarily know beforehand. To say it went smoothly is an understatement. There were times that it was jam packed in the venue and I think almost all of the vendors are so pleased with how the weekend turned out. We had 17 vendors and quite a few hundred people coming to shop. There are a few kinks to work out for next time but all in all I’m so happy with the Handmade & Vintage Market 2013. Look at all of these…
