Tidbits

Morning! I hope you're ready for the weekend - I am! This week FLEW and I couldn't be happier that it's Friday. And you know what Friday means around here...lots of random tidbits.

~Have you heard of Stampa? I read about it last week in the New York Times. You can find a nice selection of digital art by various artists and they rotate in a new artist each week. Here are a few of my favorite pieces of art...

Check it out, there's a lot of great stuff.

~I'm really excited about the next PSMM blog workshop that I'll be attending tomorrow. What is PSMM you might ask? Philly Social Media Moms. It's a super talented group of women who are well, bloggers and I'm very honored to be a part of the group. I got introduced last spring/summer by Diane (thank you Diane!). There are always great tips and advice given at the workshops, and it's a great place to mingle with other bloggers. I'll be sure to give a recap next week.

~ And, I did it. I took the plunge and finally ordered some cards. And I love them.
I ordered the cards through Pamela Sherry at Pixelimpress on Etsy thanks to a great recommendation from Lori. Pam was so easy to work with and her turnaround time was very quick. The cards are even better in person too - the color is absolutely perfect and believe it or not I sort of write like the script used on the card too which is what drew me to that font.

 ~ I know some of you have been having trouble leaving comments and I'm very sorry about that, but I certainly do appreciate you taking the time to write an e-mail or just drop a quick line to let me know about the glitch. I'm hoping the problem gets resolved soon or I might just have to switch over to Wordpress (kidding but I have considered the switch). Anyway, thanks for your continued support and even if you don't comment I appreciate taking the time to read.

Have a great weekend and I'll see you back here on Monday!

  1. Your cards are beautiful, Holly! Chic and simply elegant. I hope this means you've got something in the works that's exciting.

    I also love the shoe print. It would be so great in a dressing area...

    Enjoy your weekend at PSMM.

  6. I'm jealous. I wish we had a group like that around here. Actually, we might and I don't know about it. How do you find out about something like that I wonder. The cards look great- one more step forward!

    1. Hi Michelle! Do a quick Google search maybe there is a group near you. If not, you should start one - you would be a great leader.
