Another plus...we will wrap your gifts for FREE! Just let us know when checking out that they are "holiday gifts" and we will wrap them in holiday wrapping. Our holiday wrapping includes a solid white or solid red wrap. We can pair any ribbon combo on the top and even personalize them with your gift recipiants name. We also have our chocolate brown wrapping paper and use a great bronze ribbon {if you decorate for the holiday in these colors}.

Remember, go to

New Chalkboard and Whiteboard Days of the Week Sets

I personally think these are great gifts for the teacher on your list this holiday season! Think about using these in a classroom! How perfect.

I use them in my studio to organize orders, shipments, and design projects. My next step, to put some in my kitchen for menu planning, because I am honestly ~ well not very good at that. This set is the perfect way to stay organized and on task. Of course, for the menu planning set in my house...I think I will stick to the 6 day set. This Mama does not like to cook on the weekends!!!

If you purchase a set for menu planning...get creative! Next to the days of the week ~ you can add Monday's Menu or Eat on Monday. Instead of To Do, personalize it with Pantry Needs or Grocery List.

New Christmas Stocking

Take a peek at the website. Lots of new products to include these cool new Christmas stockings! Best part...they come with monogramming. Personally, I am going to redo my stocking stash and maybe "wrap" a couple of gifts on my list in these adorable stockings.

They would make a great hostess gift to monogram the "family" name and throw in a bottle of wine!

New Market Totes

Slowly, I am adding the new fall colors for the market totes to the website. They come in some fabulously FUN new colors and prints for the fall. They will all be on the website in about two weeks as I find the time to get everything up while finishing orders. It's been busy around here which is a good thing...everyone is getting ready for the holiday season.

A new size in the market totes is the box bag! A great BIG tote perfect to carry beach towels to stadium blankets!

New Decorative Wastebasket

I had a customer contact me regarding the new wastebaskets we are featuring. I was almost done this one and she asked if I could add her granddaughters monogram at the top and hand-paint some wooden ball feet to place at the bottom. I wanted to share with ya'll because I thought it turned out too cute for words!

September Giveway...

So, I had to think about whether I wanted to post the giveaway today or not? As I sit here and remember exactly what I was doing on 9-11.

I was at work {working for an insurance company} going through my day. Of course I was working, but I was also thinking about a birthday celebration for my husband that evening {yes, his birthday is today on 9-11}.

Our radios were playing in the background and there was a TV on in one of the conference rooms. I remember everyone hearing the radio broadcast, then stopping. Most of us rushed to the nearest TV and watched in disbelief. No one said anything. I honestly do not think we knew what to say. I still do not know what to say or how to express my thoughts. My heart goes out to the families and the children who had their dad, mom, grandparent, aunt, or uncle taken from them before their time. On the other hand, I am angry at the terrorist. Such extreme emotions.

That evening we did not go out and celebrate my husband's birthday. Instead, we stayed home, went without dinner or birthday cake and presents. We sat in front of the TV, still quiet, still in shock.

I am going to post the giveaway today because I said that I would. Life still goes on, but I know we will ALWAYS remember those we lost and how they left us.

On a much brighter note...

The giveaway for September is a Personalized Bin. They are great for so many things:

* Use it for serving bread, popcorn, or something for a party. Simply line with a
decorative napkin or use the clear plastic liner it comes with.
* Store your mail, keys, sunglasses, and cell phones by the door.
* Store your ipods and gym ids.
* Organize your bathroom ~ put toiletries in it, roll hand towels in the guest
bathroom, or fill it with decorative soaps.
* Store your mail, hair accessories, stationary, school papers, holiday candy,
Christmas cards, and much more!

We just added three new fonts to choose from!!!

Authorize Net is a fabulous company and is one of the best payment processing companies around. We searched high and low and loved their options and the security measures they take with such precious information!!!
