Thankful Thursday // 05

Well, we were slapped with an awesome break from the heat, hitting in the 50’s at night and 70’s – mid-80’s during the day. Lovely. {Although, it’s very possible that some of my gal pals were less than thrilled with the chilly morning temps. They’re crazy. :)} I wish this weather wouldn’t end so quickly but, alas, it is summer so I guess we will see our sweating temps again soon. This week, I’m sharing things that really captured my...

Oh Geez! Design: Sharing Personality & Design

I’m a sucker for paper products. Stationery, greeting cards, personalized notebooks. You got it? I’ve probably stalked it on your site, liked it, pinned it, shared it, followed it. And every once in a while, little unique gems pop up on my radar. Most recently, I found Oh Geez!

Pinterest Marketing Check-List

I have been on Pinterest a lot lately. One, because once you start, it’s still hard to stop. Two, we are in the process of decorating a few rooms in our home, and I’m getting a ton of great ideas, so the time use is effective. 🙂  But while pinning my dream closet and gallery wall designs, I noticed several online retailers not using Pinterest to their full advantage. Yes, I am “window shopping” for the home, but I can’t...

I first became aware of Pinterest several weeks back when a few Facebook friends were raving about this easily addictive website. Being the skeptic, I was thinking there is no way this site could be that appealing. But I was definitely interested, so I jumped on the bandwagon and started to check it out. Wow. Addictive does not even begin to convey the feeling that swelled over me. It’s so silly that one could get a thrill from just “pinning”...
