New Year, New Venture

I decided to rent space inside a shop in Madisonville to sell my note cards. It's a shop within a shop so it sort of fulfills a dream I've had of having my own shop one day. In the process of getting everything together (tags, displays, etc.) so I can open up for business in mid Feb. Wish me luck. Does anyone know where Madisonville LA is?

Laissez les bon temps rouler!

"LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL!" otherwise known as the battle cry of Mardi Gras. You know about Mardi Gras, don't you -- that little ole party we have down in New Orleans every year? The last chance to be bad before Lent.

Well, it's coming up around the 21st of February so if you have any parties or plans to go to for the celebration, I have the perfect note cards to say "Merci".

New Etsy Shop

Just opened a new shop on Etsy called Serenity Notes. I broke the note card part off of LadybugLane and Co. This shop will just do the note cards. Don't know if that was the best move, but it's a chance I wanted to take.

I know snail mail isn't the most popular form of communication, but I think everybody gets excited when they see an envelope that looks like a real card in their mailbox. Statistics show that most people open that kind of envelope as they're walking away from their mailbox. That has to mean something!

Anyway, visit my new shop at and let me know what you think!

A Resolution for Making Resolutions

Another new year, another chance to actually keep some (one?) of the resolutions we promise to keep. I think I know why these commitments are so had to keep -- we make them hard to keep!
Most of us make overwhelming resolutions! I'm going to lose 50 pounds this year! Really?
How about losing 1 pound at a time, and then another, and then another . . . Surely everyone can lose 1 pound at a time!!!

In other words, baby steps. If you meet your goal every day, you WILL have kept your resolution to lose 50 pounds.

I'm just sayin'!

New Year -- Chapter One

Thought I'd post this quote I saw recently. It seems to say it all regarding life and New Year's.

We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day. ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce

Blessings to all in 2012!
