(888) 406-2536 is your phone number. I found it using a Google search. Why is your business calling my cell phone and leaving me messages about services that I never ordered or prizes for contest that I never entered?!!!

It's hard to believe that the 4th of July is right around the corner. We generally take the kids to the parade, park for a picnic, pool and then fireworks. How do you like to spend the 4th?


Behold the new logo! It was about time for something a little more relevant. Stay tuned for some upcoming changes to the website. What are some of the features you'd like to see on the new site? Holiday /celebration lists? Blog with tips and advice? Shopping cart? We'd love for you to share your input.


Summer is almost here. Time for playing outside, splashing at the pool, enjoying a frozen treat and relaxing on the porch on cool evening. How do you plan to spend your summer?

Teacher get well gift


Father's Day is June 19th. For all of you Facebook fans, tell us what is special about your dad and be entered to win a Father's Day gift basket.


Since I will be spending the day with my kiddos tomorrow, I wanted to make sure I wished all of you moms a Happy Mother's Day! Hope you are all treated as the special, giving, caring, amazing women you are!


I know Mother's Day isn't quite here yet, but I'm thinking about Father's Day now (which isn't too far away). What are things you like to do with or for your dad? For me, I like to grill out with him, relax and enjoy his company.


Hope everyone had a fantastic Easter! I know the Easter bunny was quite generous at our house this year. It's time to come out of our sugar induced comas and focus on one more celebration this month. This week is Administrative Professionals Week! Please show the people who help you run the show, how much they are appreciated. Just a reminder that all Facebook fans still receive 20% until the end of the month.


Today is National Jelly Bean Day! Just in time for Easter. What's your favorite flavor?


What items would you most like to receive in a gift basket?

It's hard to believe it is already the last day of March. April brings a sense of freshness and renewal. Lots of observances to celebrate in April: couple appreciation, holy humor, nat'l garden month, pet month and fun day to name just a few. There will also be specials to take advantage of for Facebook fans, so be sure to let your friends know. I'm really looking forward to what April will bring.


Mother's Day is May 8th this year. What are things you like to give to your mom to show your love and appreciation? What are things you like to do with or for your mom?

Looking for a last minute Valentines gift idea? How about a handwritten love note? Replace the wrapper of a premium bar of chocolate with a piece of pretty scrapbooking paper cut to fit the chocolate bar. Next write a heartfelt love note on the inside of the new wrapper then wrap it around the chocolate bar. Embellish your new wrapper with some of the many themed scrapbooking stickers.

Here is a sample of some of this years Valentine baskets that are available. If you have an idea I'd love to hear it.

Also, a big announcement in the coming week. I'm really excited about it. More to come soon.


It is officially 1 month until Valentine's Day! Never too soon to start thinking about how you want to express your love to friends and family Valentine's isn't just for sweethearts either. It is also a time to show others your appreciation for the things they do. Check back soon for a preview of some this years designs.


January is also eye care month and book month. Keep those celebrations in mind as you plan your gift ideas. Need more help? Give us a call.


Happy New Year! Hope the holidays were wonderful. It's hard to believe January is almost half over. If you forgot to send a gift, personal or business, now is the time to do so. This month is all about new beginnings. Send something that invites a feeling of renewal. A new journal, spa products or even a potted bulb make excellent choices.


Now through Oct. 31st save 20% on our first order. Just mention you saw it on Facebook.

Fall 2010 09/07/2010

The holidays are fast approaching. Here is a sneak peek at a couple of the Fall baskets. Plus a couple of custom designs for a wedding and a baby (not at the same time). lol


Everyone is gearing up to head back to school, so now is the perfect time to get the college student on your list ready for life away from home. Put together a care basket of items they will need to have handy in the dorm or their apartment. Include things like laundry soap, cleaning supplies, stain sticks, snack foods, etc. Don't forget to include quarters for the washing machines.


Yeah! The web site is finally up. There are a few more tweaks I'd like to make, but at least it is up and functioning.

The parade today was a lot of fun and the kids had a great time. I will get pics posted soon. Great seeing so many there.


Don't forget that Father's Day is June 20th. Is the special dad in your life a golfer, fisherman or sports fan? Maybe he just enjoys a great snack. Tell me your budget and let's create a unique gift that shows how special you think he is.


Oops! I screwed up! The Kalona Days parade is on June 19th and not on the 12th. Be sure to mark your calendars.


The web site is just about complete. I have my webmaster working hard on it and it should be up by this weekend. You can still give me a call if you need something in the meantime. 888-406-2536
