Actually, we’re going to do that annoying TV-game-show thing where they keep you in suspense just long enough to go to commercial break. And here’s our commercial break: Thank you to everyone who took the time to come visit our new blog and especially to those who posted about freshly baked‘s giveaway on their site. We appreciate the shout-outs and have our own big shout-out in return: THANK YOU!
Now it’s time to announce the winner of our very first freshly baked giveaway. We had a tie and randomly drew a name to decide the winner, and the winner is…Lace! Congratulations! We hope you enjoy the fabulous gift bag and maybe even post about it (especially about the cute freshly baked onesie from georgie tees…) on your blog, Keeping My Fingers Crossed, which by the way is a great resource for info on fab giveaways.
Because it’s great to start the week of with a bit of humor I’d like to introduce you to Life’s Lemons, a business owned by Amber Pulley, a good friend of mine. You’ll have to take a minute to read the story behind the cards, as I’m sure many of you will relate. Once you’ve got a feel for the “how” and “why” of Life’s Lemons, spend more than a minute browsing her line of greeting cards. Amber’s mantra is to squeeze the humor out of life and Life’s Lemons does just that. I guarantee you’ll laugh out loud, and if you don’t you’ve got to practice your squeezing! My favorite is the Bummer: “They say bad things don’t happen to good people…You proved them wrong.” I also love the birthday card that simply says, “In dog years you’d be dead.” Leave it to my friend Amber to help us take a lemon and turn it into something sweet and sassy. Her Life’s Lemons cards can be found in retailers across the country and Canada, or if you feel so inclined get your squeeze on sooner by ordering a handful online. I’m sure we all know someone who’d appreciate the post-surgery card: “Good luck on your recovery…the twins look great!” Plus 10% of all purchases goes towards the American Red Cross. Who knew laughter had so many benefits? –Emily
