Mini Moo...

This post has nothing to do with ice cream, actually. It has to do with a little project I had cookin'. I was going to wait until I was certain that the recipients of such cards had their little package, but it won't completely ruin the surprise, this just gives them a good teaser.

In any case, back in March, I had written a post about making something for the first 5 people who had posted a comment. Unfortunately, I only had 4 comments, but it was mostly for experimental purposes to see if anyone was REALLY interested in getting something handmade. I guess I had my answer. While this isn't EXACTLY handmade, it took my time and it was my creative spirit that drove it. (All pictures are taken by me.) I found this fun little company for my purpose: Moo.com. I set out to create a set of mini inspiration cards. On the front is an image from the following set:

The back says:
taste.touch.smell.hear.see.
BE DARING
& indulge yourself today.
Not only have they received something granting them permission to indulge, but I'm encouraging them to pass the party on. I've surprised a few people at work and they were positively received. Of course, it warmed my heart and gave me the happy fuzzies deep inside.

For your printing needs, I would recommend Moo.com. I love their wacky (and earth friendly!) packaging with quirky sayings. The quality is nice, and the price is just right. I'm definitely using them in the future for other projects. Go and check 'em out. Here's a code for you first time buyers: 2RB2CK
