This, ladies and gentle... er, uh, ladies, is my 1ooth post! I first started this blog thinking that only my closest friends and family would read it and somehow along the way, you took the time to come here, read my words, share your comments and become a friend. I can't tell you what that has meant to me. (Oh, and I'm pretty sure that my family and close friends don't actually read my blog. Yeah, that's right, I'm on to you. Yeah, I'm looking at you, sister.)
I tried to change the url to my blog earlier today. For a long time, I've been thinking about this change and wanting to change the url from my name to something related to the blog itself. (Since I am now officially a therapist by trade, we don't want any future clients googling my name and finding the blog. Right? Right.) I've had a ba-zillion ideas, but yesterday my boyfriend came up with one I'm loving. I went in to change it, but at the last minute chickened out. I first wanted to share with all of you and let my friends and family (you know, the ones who don't actually read this) know of this upcoming change first. So, by the end of the week, I should have a fancy new url. I'll be sure to let you know of the change, but it shouldn't affect those of you that are already followers. Stay tuned...
For some reason, I've been a little apprehensive about doing a giveaway. Then I thought about how much I've loved taking part in all of my favorite blogs' giveaways (even though I never, ever win). Oh, what the hell... Here goes.
I've teamed up with my best friend, Carina, over at crowandcanary to offer this amazing boxed set of 12 of the most lovely cards. (4 Birthday cards, 4 Thank You cards, 1 I'm Sorry card, 1 Get Well card, 1 Thinking of You card & 1 I Miss You card)
As much as I love emailing, facebooking (is that a word?), blogging, twittering (is it tweeting?), etc., there's nothing like getting a card in the mail. I think it's a lost art and I think it's time we brought it back. What do you say? Are you in?
(This is the one and only Carina. She dreamt up her own business and actually had the guts to start it. Three years ago, Crow and Canary was born. She represents modern stationery and accessory designers. Basically, she gets to travel to all the major cities on the west coast and show off their wares to buyers and shop owners. How cool is that? One of the major job perks, is the surplus of paper goods that she ends up with. So, this brings us to our giveaway...)
Last, but not least, as a little extra giveaway love, I'm throwing in a $30 Forever 21 gift card. Seriously, who doesn't love that store? With $30, you can probably buy and accessorize an entire outfit. Who am I kidding? Probably two entire outfits. Gotta love Forever 21.
