oops! Missed Yesterday's Christmas Card

So today you get two!

The first is somewhat academic in light of my son's spectacular performance in the school spelling bee yesterday. I know, math and spelling are a little different, but you get it.

The second card - just for my Clara. Who after getting her two front teeth pulled today, definitely makes the nice list. No doubt. And the girl did not even shed a tear! No, she is not asking for her two front teeth for Christmas - the new ones are already there.

17 Holiday Cards - December 6th

We had our first snowfall of the 2011 - 2012 winter season this morning - just a dusting, but beautiful none-the-less. I am slowly starting to get in the holiday spirit!

17 Holiday Cards - December 5th

Today's card should make most parents nod their heads in agreement and dismay. It rings especially true for us this year. We bit the bullet and bought a beautiful, "permanent", pre-lit tree this year. It is very pretty and we have no pine needles, water spills and our tree will not fall over. How beautiful. The box this tree came in was huge - it has served as a row boat, TV watching home for my twin girls - no joke - they filled it with pillows and blankets and laid in it to watch movies, and they are constantly hiding in it! What fun.

So, in light of that - here is today's card - enjoy!

17 Holiday Cards - December 2nd

If you caught last nights local FOX news broadcast you will have seen Bennett Schneider, as we were host to an award winning gingerbread house. We even had Santa in the shop for a while. While in the shop he made a comment about how I made the nice list - which my kids thought was so great. Now I need to make a really good Christmas list - so today's card ... is only fitting.

Pack a Lunch

Hey brides and grooms, your wedding day doesn't start fifteen minutes before the ceremony for your attendants. No, it probably starts early in the morning and ends late in the evening.

So we recommend you do something very special. Pack them a lunch. And not just a brown paper bag. We think these boxes from smock paper, available at Bennett Schneider, make the perfect "boxed" lunch. Fill it with a great sandwich, some locally made chips, some dried fruit and nuts and a delightful custom sugar cookie. This is a great way to pack up your gifts to them also.

I chose to display the navy and white shades here, because I am knee deep in navy blue silk ribbon right now for an August wedding. There are many colors to choose from and lots of great patterns.

Stop in and we can take care of everything from ordering sandwiches and cookies to delivering them on the wedding day.

Matchbook Magazine

We love sugar paper here at Bennett Schneider. Their product is one of the best we have seen and the style is the perfect blend of traditional, modern and, well, just perfect.

Matchbook Magazine recently featured an article about owners, Chelsea and Jamie, the co-founders. You can check out the magazine article here.

Then you should stop in to the shop and let us help you design your own sugar paper custom calling cards, stationery and invitations. You will not be dissappointed.

Lobster on the Brain

We have been working with a bride whose May wedding will be a tropical one and we are working on some fun custom lobster bibs for one of the dinner events. We don't sell many lobster invites around here, but here are a few I really like - and yes, if you can get the lobster here, we can do the invitations.

All of My Love...

We have some of the cutest Valentine's Day cards in the shop right now. My favorites are the boxed sets from Rifle Paper Co. The set includes eight cards (two of each design) - think valentine's for everyone - mom, dad, grandma, gramps, husband and kids - all in one box. And they are so very stylish!

How about these ... from Mr. Boddington. I am going to give my Dave the eye chart card or maybe the cute "pairs" card or maybe ... I will just have to decide later. They are all very cute.

For the kids to give to their friends? You can't go wrong with these Meri-Meri boxed valentine's.

So, stop in now to get yours - you don't want to be late.
