Know someone who needs a blog makeover?

Give them a gift certificate for them to beautify their blog. (Also, the perfect gift for yourself!)

Stumped on what to give a friend or wife who has everything?

I bet they’d love some Mommy Cards or Blog Cards.

My Mommy Cards are the original Mommy Cards – often imitated, but only mine are still a Top Gift Pick by

(File-only version also available; Custom one-of-a-kind designs also available for an additional charge)

I am rolling out new Holiday Card and Mommy Card designs in the next couple of days. I will post them here and on my business blog, so be on the lookout.

I’ll leave the comments open until this Saturday, April 26th. Then I’ll draw a winner from my trusty hat.

I’m a frayed knot

Thirteen Loose Ends I need to wrap up:

1. The winner of yesterday’s What The?! is Beth at A Mom’s Life.

2. It was a close up of this photo:

See the front of that sled? Yeah, it was that.

I love love love love love reading your guesses! And I love even more, that you are willing to play along!

3. On that note, here is a button to spread the word (maybe we can get some fun prizes lined up!)

If you use it, please link to this page so that others can find out what it is all about.

4. Also with that, since next Tuesday is Christmas, there will be no “What The” – but I will do the drawing for the month and announce it Wednesday the 26th.

5. The names to be picked from are: Sarah, Megan (FriedOkra), MommaJones and Beth

6. I’ve decided that I am definitely going to offer my Mommy Cards in a .jpeg format, effective immediately. They will be $15.00 and you will be purchasing the a high resolution .jpeg file. You may then print as many as your little heart desires. Or take it to Kinko’s, Office Max or your local print shop and have them print it for you.

7. I am also going to offer this option for my birth announcements and wedding stationary (for the DIY bride… or, whatever…)

8. I am also going to be offering personal stationary soon.

9. I’ve been tagged for a meme by Kim — Kim, I’ll post it real soon! Promise.

10. My mom and dad are coming to our house for Christmas. (Yippee!)
I’m wondering – For those of you who are familiar with Etsy or use it yourselves to sell stuff, do you like it? Is it a good option for selling? If you remember, my mom sews and sells really cute purses. I’ve set her up a web site, but I’m wondering if Etsy will be easier for her to use?? Opinions?

11. I had every intention of participating in the Christmas Tour of Homes, but I just flat-out got behind. I still haven’t taken any photos of my decorations. So, just imagine the most gorgeous Christmas decor ever. Then pretend it’s mine.

12. My feed is still acting weird. Please let me know if it is showing weird for you, and which feed reader you are using.

13. Please leave me a comment. Even just “hi”. I’m wondering how many comments I can get for Christmas.

So excited!

This saturday, March 24th, please be sure to visit Cool Mom Picks, for a write up and review of my Mommy Cards. I am hoping to have several new designs posted by then as well.

This is very exciting to me, as I have been praying for a way for my business to grow. This site has heavy traffic, so it is a great opportunity for me. Please pray that the Lord will use it according to HIS will.
