Blogging once a week & Kindness

So one of my goals for 2015 is to do some blogging on my business every week. I am going to highlight ideas, showcase products, give you something every week to get you inspired in your own projects. I am not going to pick a specific day cause I don't want to give myself too much pressure but a few days grace either side! This is my second week of blogging and my third post of the year. I'm on track so far. I hope I can keep it up.

So this week I'm going to highlight something really nice you can do for a friend as part of a #365daysofkindness idea (see my sisters Blog or her 365 Days of Kindness Facebook Page that I help administer for more kindness ideas.

One thing that is nice to do is to send a friend a card, saying "thanks" or "Happy Birthday" or "I'm thinking of you".

Then for someone (as something extra special) you can send/give your friend a bunch of blank cards so they can send them on to their friends and family. Its a really nice way to pay it forward.

I did this for a friend as a gift recently. These are some of the cards I gave to her (I gave her 8 in total), some using older items from my stash, but you can get lots of them youself by checking my website in the "While Stocks Last" Section that is only available to purchase from my website There is also a new "retiring soon" section of the online shopping section that shows items that are going to be retiring soon. You might want to check that out so you don't miss out on anything. I really enjoyed making these cards so I hope you enjoy seeing them.
