Halloween is fast-approaching and if you have a tiny person (or people) in your life, I suspect this means you have visited or want to visit a pumpkin patch. I don't know about you, but we spend a fair bit of time in fall walking around the neighborhood to check out people's pumpkins.Read More
It's not too late to order a special card for your Mom, mother-in-law, or one of your momma friends to send before May 10th. I know it is May and National Letter-writing Month is over, but why not continue and brighten someone's day with a hand-written note? Below are a few of my favorites. How did the letter-writing go? I missed a few days of writing during April, but I definitely sent at least 30 cards and enjoyed sitting down most nights to write a note or two. The best part has been the notes I received from people - thanks!
Speaking of Mother's Day, if you haven't seen this video of blindfolded children identifying their mother, you should watch it. Warning - it is a tearjerker!
I know, I know... it was just Halloween. That said, the holidays will be here before you know it and I love one of new offerings from the USPS this year called "Winter Fun." It contains four designs (three of which I like - there is something about the tiny heads on the skaters that looks weird to me):
There are some other new stamp releases for the holidays including a Rudolph series (pictured below), an international Silver Bells Wreath, and the Christmas Magi. Is anyone thinking about this yet or am I too early? I know at least two of you are because we had an e-mail exchange today on this very subject (you know who you are).

Why is it that most father's day cards tend to have something to do with work? There's a tie... or a briefcase... or a man wearing a tie with a briefcase. If you're lucky, you might find one with something to do with grilling. Is that what Dads do? Work and grill? I've tried to find a few cards that have fun messages or have to do with some other interest your father might have so that you don't have to remind him that on the day after father's day, he has to go back to work. Have you picked up a great father's day card yet? If so, where is it from? I'd love to know.

I'm happy to report (a week later than planned) that Thanksgiving was a success. The turkey that was still quite frozen (and induced a panic) on Thursday morning... but everything turned out just fine. With 90 extra minutes in the oven, all was well.Read More
