That time of year...

If you know me, you know I love sending cards. I volunteer with Send Love Today, an organization that sends handmade cards to people (mostly children) with brain cancer ... I send cards for nearly every holiday ... and most recently, I sent moving announcements (yes, the weekend we moved!). Words of Affirmation are definitely my Love Language - I love adding a bit of fun to mailboxes of friends and family.

76 days from now is the most common card-sending holiday: Christmas! So yes, I know it's not even Halloween, but I'm starting to think about Christmas Cards already!!

One of my favorite card companies is Tiny Prints - their quality truly can't be beat. I first heard of them when planning our wedding, as they're affiliated with Wedding Paper Divas.  Tiny Prints frequently has promotions - you can check out current ones right on their Promo Codes page.

Tiny Prints recently contacted me, and has generously provided a $50 off total order code to one of my readers. (Discount code does not include shipping and cannot be combined with any other promos.) 

If you're like to win $50 off a future order, please post a reply by October 29: what is your favorite holiday?

ETA: Congrats to Erin for winning!

It's that time again ... time for resolutions, a clean start, a new year. Once again, I'll be participating in One Little Word.

I had to look back on this blog post to recall my past words:
2008: FOCUS
2011: LOVE

And drumroll... my word for 2012: MORE!
I originally was going to go for LESS (stress less, weigh less, eat out less...) but wanted a positive spin on my word, so I'm going with MORE. I decided I want to love MORE, save MORE, move MORE, enjoy MORE, forgive MORE, and live MORE this year.

Since I couldn't even recall my 2010 word let alone remember doing anything with my word in 2011, I decided to make a commitment to making MORE a part of my life in 2012. I joined the One Little Word class, and look forward to documenting my word this year.

Oh ... but that's not all! I also just decided to do Project Life in 2012. I've enjoyed capturing my every day with past projects (Week in the Life and December Daily), but struggle with putting it all together. I want to stress less and document MORE! There are so many awesome Project Life ideas out there - but I'm aiming to just do it with less stress! It won't be perfect, but it will be my life!

Stay tuned to how Project Life and One Little Word impact my year ... maybe I'll even blog MORE in 2012. ;)

A New Kind of Boxed Wine

I had dinner with some girlfriends last week, and was in charge of bringing wine. I brought some Black Box wine ... not your average boxed wine! The wine is award winning - and delicious!

All of the girls liked it - we tried the Cabernet Sauvignon. It was very smooth, easy to drink, with a soft finish. Best part? On sale for $18, for the equivalent of 4 bottles. And since we didn't drink it all, it tastes good for up to a month after opening. Perfect when I want only a glass or two of wine!

I learned about Black Box from BzzAgent, and I'm so glad I did. It's nice to have a new, budget-friendly wine around.
