First I want to share with you one of the loveliest things I have read in a while. Go read Mommy by Her Bad Mother. I can’t read it without crying. She captured the perfect essence of the moment.
Partners in Paper e-mailed me about a special discount for you, you, and you. The stationery shop features sassy designs from Dabberdoo, Amy Jennings, and Skirts, just to name a few. Use promotion code Eskimo to receive 20 percent off your order. They charge a flat $6 for shipping, which I love. The notepads would make great gifts; I’m especially partial to the flirty purse and flip flop and cocktail themes. I’m sure you find that hard to imagine.
Speaking of paper bliss, check out Mom Business Cards. Scrawling my cell phone number on the back of a Target receipt or one of my dog-eared business cards suddenly seems so lame!
Martha Stewart plots WORLD DOMINATION. OK, that’s a bit dramatic, but she’s launching an online social network for you craftys, which would, admittedly, not include me. (Hat tip: Back in Skinny Jeans)
Susan from Friday Playdate has new digs at The Working Closet which is all about “creating a wardrobe that works for your body and your life and your budget… feeling polished and elegant and pretty no matter where you’re going… wearing what you love and loving what you wear…and having a closet that works for you.” Thanks to Susan’s blog I realize I own a pair of pink chandelier earrings. (I had no idea that’s what they were called.) Check out all the cool bloggers at Work It, Mom!
Pottery Barn Kids and Parenting.com are sponsoring a $10,000 dream room sweepstakes. I could do some serious monogramming damage with that kind of cashola. Ann Taylor Loft and InStyle magazine want to whisk you away on a cruise. Kailani from Island Life has the scoop on all the giveaways in Blogland.
Have a great weekend!
