< Coming...DIY Thanksgiving Place Cards>

I've got some FREE (read that: f-r-e-e) place cards to download for your Thanksgiving feast. They are on their way. I just have to get my tech-savy husband to help me set up the whole downloady thing and finish up the file. But come back tuesday and they should be ready (limited time offer! After this Thanksgiving they are going up for sale in my Etsy shop).

< Mibo >

I ordered a couple of these print-it-yourself PDF projects from Mibo Studio last year (along with a print-it-yourself calendar, an idea I'm hoping to use this year in my Etsy shop...stay tuned). You buy the PDF, download it, and then can print out as many of these little guys as you want! Mind you, it's not as easy as clipping coupons (you probably want to use and X-acto knife). These could make VERY cute place card holders for table settings for a shower or holiday meal.

- Kate Spade Ski Hats -

It's so strange, but like five or six years ago I saw these hats in Vogue and tried to find them on the Kate Spade site. Not a trace of them. Now suddenly here they are! I'm not sure what the lag was all about. I still can't really afford one (my fave is the ski goggles).

~ Free Nursing Cover AND Free Baby Carrier ~

Udder Covers (I know, the name is worth some laughs) has done it again! I just got an email this morning that they are doing the free nursing cover promotion (they've done it several times before so I know it works...I love mine!). Makes a perfect gift, too. Just enter the promo code "Thanksgiving" (you still have to pay the $9.95 shipping). Valid once per transaction, but you can use the code more than once - you just have to open a new browser/window to do so. Due to available stock, they are not sure how long this promotion can last, so don't wait.

If you buy an Udder Cover, you will be give the option to go to their new baby carrier line at www.sevenslings.com and get a FREE sling (a $39 value, just pay shipping) by entering whatever email address you used to complete your Udder Cover transaction. This promo is good only once.

Note: for $3.50 you get what's called "Size Exchange Insurance," a one-time right to exchange the sling in your order for a different size sling. This non refundable insurance covers both the cost of shipping the sling back to us as well as the cost of shipping the new size sling back to you on our shipping account. Probably a good idea (I did it).

They ship to U.S. and Canada.

+ Play! 2011 Calendar +

“PLAY! Design for Kids” is EIGA’s new design calendar. The calendar contains the work of 53 designers and architects who combine concept and design with the joy of play to delight children. Plus each page handles the day-planner layout differently and plays with creative type. Definitely a fun way to organize your year.
