30 Day Challenge

We love this gratitude challenge by Those Card Folks! Check it out:

"Have an 'Attitude of Gratitude' and join The 30 Day Challenge!

The goal is to take a challenge of gratitude. 30 days of being grateful. The 30 day Challenge is identifying one different person each day, for 30 days, and sending them a card to show your appreciation to them.

Join my team by signing up with a SendOutCards customer account (your cost = about $1/day) and then sign your commitment to send 1 card a day for 30 days using the SendOutCards system.

I, as your SendOutCards coach, will assist you to implement the first 3 days ensuring your successful use of the program.

After you complete the challenge, if this exercise hasn’t had a profound impact on your well-being you can ask me for your money back--no questions asked, but you must have completed the challenge for the complete 30 days.

If you would like to also share the 30 days of Gratitude Challenge with others and learn how you can make extra income, please ask me for details.

Realize that if you are grateful more often in your life, your life could be better.

Are you ready to get started? Please message us privately for information and to get started. Start this life changing challenge NOW!" -ThoseCardFolks,

Leah Jo & Tim: The Color Palette Featured Wedding: Leah Jo & Tim

Leah Jo and Tim had a bold green and orange wedding color palette. They also added touches of white and brown, which really kept their palette from being too overwhelming. From their bouquets to the favor boxes to the cakes to the centerpieces, everything came together so perfectly in their palette.

Leah Jo & Tim: The Cakes Featured Wedding: Leah Jo & Tim

Leah Jo and Tim's wedding cake and groom's cake were both created by The Cake Artist. I adore their clean and sophisticated wedding cake, and the green and brown go perfectly with their wedding color palette. I also love the groom's cake - it would be so easy to customize this cake for any groom...any groom that likes beer, that is. :) The Cake Artist could easily decorate the bottle cap to match any groom's favorite adult beverage.

Leah Jo & Tim: The Coordinator Featured Wedding: Leah Jo & Tim

Leah Jo and Tim hired Debra Harris of Visions by Debra to coordinate their wedding day. "Leah Jo and Tim's wedding was rich with Irish Tradition. The most important element in the couple's wedding was to include their guests in as many facets of the celebration as possible. Beginning with the day it was held, St. Patrick's Day. The guests were invited to sample the local flavor, they were greeted with Welcome Bags at their check in at the hotel, filled with information on the area and items to refresh them from their long journey. (The Welcome Bags design mimicked the couple's wedding invitations.) Local wines from Beachaven Vineyard were offered to the guests at the couple's rehearsal dinner.

Kilts were the order of the day for the groom, his merry men, and several of the male guests. The bride and her maids incorporated the theme in the styling of their hair. Tucked away in the bride's bouquet was a horseshoe for luck. The guests were handed bells to be rung when the couple were pronounced man and wife. The ceremony in keeping with Celtic tradition included a hand fastening ceremony.

 At the reception each guest table included an Irish blessing to be read during the toasts by a representative from each table, there was a wishing tree which guests wrote their advise for a long and happy marriage, which were written on, you guessed it, four leaf clovers. If you're not sure what to do with the disposable cameras, try taking your lead from our couple: make it a scavenger hunt. Guests were provided a camera and a list of pictures to be taken over the course of the reception. Even the menu reflected the theme offering Sheppard's pie, bangers and mash, etc. The couple's wedding cake reflected the colors and lay out of their invitations. Away was the traditional parent's dance as the couple each danced with their Mothers simultaneously." -Debra Harris, Visions by Debra
