Last Chance for Giveaway!!!

Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway. Leave your comment on the PIF post. The PIF winners have already been determined so now everyone commenting is only entering the strings attached. I'll be picking a winner tomorrow. I haven't decided for sure what the prize will be but I'm leaning towards one of these because they are my absolute new favorite product...

I got an email from someone sweet yesterday saying she loved hers so much and that they are much cuter in person. I agree!

A Few of My NEW Favorite Things...

If you know me, you know I have a love/hate relationship with my hair. My crazy curly hair was perfect for the late 80's and the early 90's. I dug my hair back then. When big hair became uncool my hair problems became serious. All my hair knows how to do on its own is "BIG." Somewhere in the mid 90's my sorority sister Ande spent what seemed like forever one night straightening my hair. Once I realized it could be done I was hooked. For the past 13 years or so I've spent endless amounts of time with lots of product and a flat iron. I've straightened it for so many years that I've almost trained it not to curl. In fact, now if I try to make it curl I really just get a bunch of frizz. ATTRACTIVE. A few weeks ago I decided I was sick and tired of spending hours with the blow dryer and the flat iron. I picked up this product:It's a miracle!! I got the Wonder Waves shampoo, conditioner and mousse and after one use I had lots of waves and curls and a lot less frizz. I'm not saying my hair looks fabulous so if you see me out and about don't judge. I'm just saying it's a lot easier than hours spent straightening! So to all my fellow frizzy haired friends, go get some Wonder Waves!!! You can thank me later.

Have you tried the Cinnamon Sugar Soft Pretzels from the Target Snack Bar? Am I crazy, or are they one of the yummiest things ever??? I don't usually eat at Target but one day recently I was there and was near death due to hunger. The Baker went and got us one of these delicious things and we devoured it in seconds. YUM! Seriously! Yesterday Nora and I had this conversation in the car:

Nora: "Mommy, you know what I can't get out of my head?"
Me: "What?"
Nora: "That soft pretzel from Target! I love those things!"

That girl's just like her mommy. So if you've had one of these, tell me I'm not wrong! They are YUMMY! If you haven't, don't. I don't want you blaming me for your Cinnamon Sugar Soft Pretzel problem later.

So there you have it...two of my new favorite things. Grocery store shampoo and snack bar pretzels...I'm easy to please.

Pay It Forward GIVEAWAY!


This weekend I was doing some blog surfing and I stopped by cute Kristi's blog just in time to get in on some giveaway action. You know how much I love GIVEAWAYS! Now you can get in on the Pay It Forward Action too.
Here are the official rules: I will send a hand made gift to the first three people who leave a comment on this post requesting to join the PIF exchange. All the gifts will be made and sent out (sometime within the next year). How exciting to not know when your surprise package will arrive! What you need to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog. This exchange is only open to those with active websites or blogs. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PROMISE TO POST THIS SAME 'PAY IT FORWARD' MESSAGE ONTO YOUR BLOG, WHICH MUST BE ACTIVE IN ORDER TO PLAY. YOU WILL PAY IT FORWARD TO THREE PEOPLE WHO COMMENT ON YOUR BLOG.
1. The first three people who comment commit to the PIF thing. (already done...Lezel, Terra & Brandy)2. Then, from all the other comments, I will randomly choose a winner and send that person a gift too. That person isn't in the PIF, that person is just a winner of the giveaway. I'll choose this person on Saturday, February 28th.

The gifts are supposed to be hand made. I know a lot of you are probably thinking that you can't get in on it because your aren't "crafty" enough. Hopefully the Pay It Forward Giveaway creator won't be mad at me but I'm thinking we can bend the official rules a tiny bit. If you really want in on it but don't feel like you can come up with a handmade gift on your own then you should just support someone you know that has a handmade crafty kind of business. Buy a gift from them...just don't head out to Target for your it?

Hope this makes sense...comment away!!! Can't wait to see who gets in on this one!

Getting Organized...

Magnetic Personalized Weekly Calender Note Pad
Full Year: $18
1/2 Year: $12

I'm so excited about this new weekly calender! I needed something to hang in the kitchen so at a glance we would all know what was going on for the week. I made this and LOVE it! I was about to buy something similar a few weeks ago at an office supply store but there was a huge problem. It wasn't cute. So I made my own and it seems to be doing the trick. It has a row for each family member and a row for dinner. This helps with my plan to stick to a "menu" and it keeps everyone from asking "what's for dinner?"
Right now these are only available in the Damask design. They are magnetic so they will stick right to the fridge. Once you are done with the week, just tear off the page and start on the next. Choose a full year (52 sheets) or choose 1/2 a year (26 sheets.)
Black with Tiffany Blue, Pink or Green & Brown with Tiffany Blue, Pink or Green

And the winner is...

First of all let me say that I have never had such an overwhelming response to a post! The response to my FAQs has been hilarious! I've been laughing at all the comments and emails. I'm glad you all enjoyed my sarcasm and I hope no one has been offended. I promise I really didn't have any one person in mind when I wrote them so don't feel like I put any questions on there just for YOU. If they made the list that means they have been asked FREQUENTLY and I wanted people to have a place to look if they weren't sure about something. If you have a question don't be afraid to ask! Unless it's been asked several times I won't run and put it on THE LIST. Now back to business...

Thank you for all your dinner suggestions! You should get together and make a crock pot cookbook! The Random Number Generator has spoken:

Congratulations Learning4Life! You've won a super fabulous extra cute PaperDoll Designs Memo Holder!!! Email me!

Sample Sale!

I have the greatest customers! I love all the sweet comments and the notes (and sometimes even little gifts) that are left at my doorstep when people pick up their orders. I love that I have made some great friends through PaperDoll. For all the good there is just a little bad. No Shows are one of the things I really dislike. Once in a while, not very often at all, someone will place an order and then never come by to pick it up. Since I have no use for note cards with someone else's name and because my sample closet is overflowing I have decided to start posting them. Perhaps one of you know an Aubrey Grace or a Jenny that would like some 1/2 price note cards.
Chocolate Party Pink "Aubrey Grace" Impervious font - $5/set of 10 note cards
Big Dotty Hot Pink "Jenny" Kayleigh font - $5/set of 10 note cards

Because I get asked the same questions about PaperDoll stuff A LOT I'm going to be adding a Freguently Asked Questions section soon so if you have any questions, send them my way.
