Moo Business Cards

MOO_Logo_575I ordered business cards for the blog today! I’ve always adored Moo’s mini cards and I thought it was high time I ordered some for myself!

I love the fact that you can have up to 100 different designs on the back of your card. I only ended up with 8 variations using some of my photography, but I think they’re pretty fun! What do you think? Order some for yourself and get 10% off by clicking here!

I’ve listed below the recipe we use for our Aviations – there are many different variations out there but this is our favorite:

Friday Favorites: Book Series

FF BooksI still haven’t decided what makes one a “reader.” Is it nature or nurture that imparts the love of books? Perhaps it depends on how well-taught one was in reading comprehension. All I know is that I have loved books for as long as I can remember – particularly books in a series. Here are some of my favorites… what are yours?
