    I'm reposting some of my favorite & most popular posts from my old Blogger blog.  Stay tuned for more Greatest Hits!

    It hit me on my birthday last year…Facebook has replaced the birthday card.

    Don't mistake me. It made me so glad to see how many people thought of me on my birthday & posted on my wall. Thanks Facebook for making sure they knew it was my big day. I am super grateful for the times you've reminded me about someone's special day.

    Then, I got a little sad…no cards for me. No snail mail. Even my inbox is just full of bills these days. Booooo!!!

    So, this year I want to start a new initiative! Do you like getting snail mail? 'Cause I do & I want to send some to you. I want to send you a card for your birthday.

    Fill in THIS FORM to give me your name, address & birthday. All information will be kept confidential. I'm not even asking for the year you were born. Who cares?! You're not signing up for my newsletter & I'm not going to send you any promotional anything. Just a birthday card.  One entry per person please. If you'd like me to send cards to anyone else, send them this post & make sure they sign up.

    One more time >>> FILL IN THIS FORM to participate

    Cards will go out during your birthday month. Smiles will be put on faces…yours as well as mine!


    Congratulations to Sarah Shotts! She is the winner of 1 set of letterpressed Framed Monogrammed Cards. Not surprisingly, she chose S as her letter.

    Sarah, thanks for participating! Enjoy your cards.

    I know for most people it's a little early to start thinking about the winter holidays, but in the stationery business, the summer is primetime. So, I'd like to introduce Gratuity Envelopes. 

    The envelopes, which come in boxes of 10, are great cash, check or gift card holders. They come in 3 colors - red, navy & bamboo green - and feature my oh-so-popular Stars of Thank You design letterpressed on the front. Use these classy kraft envelopes for gifts for teachers, dog walkers, parking attendants or the postman...any one who you want to say thank you to with a little reward. The envelope is 6.5" wide by 3.675" and is made with sustainable fibers using 100% renewable energy.

    Also! Despite the fact that these have the design on the front, you can still mail them. All you need is a cello sleeve for the outside! Mailing label & postage goes on that & away it goes in the mail. With a First Class Stamp! Easy-peasy. 

    You can find them in the Thank You section of my Etsy shop!

    Over the years I've worked with some lovely brides who have put on some BEAUTIFUL weddings. Kristina was no exception...and Style Me Pretty Pennsylvania AGREED!!!

    For their wedding, I handstamped 130 menus for the reception. Kristina's new husband is a former Marine so we swapped the couple's names from my standard design for "chowtime!" to really make it personal for them. I matched the fonts to Kristina's other materials & stamped all 130 8 inch doilies in Midnight Black. I love the way they came out. Super cute! Playful & elegant at the same time.

    You can get all the details about this fabulous winter wedding on Style Me Pretty, as well as view the full gallery of wedding images. Lauren Fair captured the event so of course the images are killer. 

    HAHAHAHAHA!!! A squirrel in a party hat!
