Happy Dikefest holidays 2010!

(my scanner is lame...sorry TP)

they're here they're here!!
(actually they came like two weeks ago but don't rush me)

My Tiny Prints holiday cards! I love them! and technology! and all of you!! They are truly (truly truly)...outrageous. I wish I had enough to send to every person I have ever known in my whole life. 

Wanna hear a funny story about their very helpful customer service?...

Ok, before you go to print you have to proof read (duh). Then you receive an email to sign off on the order before it does so. During that final step I found a "typo," so I replied requesting the spelling be changed on a particular word "I seemed to have overlooked." About 15 minutes later I got a personal phone call from the printing coordinator to tell me that it was spelled wrong initially, but they had (quietly) fixed it and sent it to me to sign off on for final print...I saw the (corrected) spelling and emailed them to change it, again! Anyway the girl was like (in the most polite way you could let someone know they were an idiot) "I googled it AND looked it up in the dictionary and it seems both agree that it should be spelled...the other way. But, just let me know how you'd like it to read...

So I was all "HA! That was just a test, and yooou passed it!!" (it wasn't. I'm an idiot)
My point? Even when you can't, the humans at Tiny Prints (vs. straight up computer orders at other companies) take the time to make it right so your family and friends don't think you're a dummy :)

tiny prints

Have I mentioned how terrible I am at sending cards or announcements? I have. 
But let me refresh your memory...I suck. 

But all is not lost!!

It seems just about every business provides holiday card services these days, and as convenient as it is to grab your card when your getting milk at walmart...Tiny Prints is even easier and WAY more adorable (unless you dig generic snowmen and ugly Santa clause faces). If the cuteness factor is as important to you as it is to me, you will totally appreciate the 5 star cuteness of their selection...and I assure you, you will find one you LOVE. There are SO many to choose from (33 pages to be exact) and they are all completely personalize-able and fantastic (ie: you don't have to settle for some cheesefest one liner)

Don't like the color scheme? Change it. 
Want to add more pictures? Done-zo. 
Want to do nothing and have it look adorable anyway? You got it.

Now for my favorite part: it is so easy peasy! One of the things I hate is when I go to upload a file and then it tells me my file size is too big. Then, after I punch myself in my A.D.D. face, I go try and shrink them all down but inevitably get sidetracked with another picture project and then my family gets their christmas cards in February (or never). Tiny Prints drag and drop convenience has wicked fast upload time and accepts individual files sizes up to 10MB. It will even tell you if your file is too small! (therefore avoid having your print look like pixelated crap) There are modern, trendy, and elegant choices for one and all. There are tri fold, circular and even pop up cards! 

So if this team can get our cards out on time this certainly can too. You won't regret it. I can't wait until mine come in the mail!! When they do, I will kiiick, stretch aaand KICK! ...and then you will all surely be cyber wished a Happy Dikefest 2010 :)

I love belts. 

If I could french kiss a belt, I would. Actually I guess I could, but it'd probably be pretty weird for everyone involved. So I guess I'll stick to french kissing humans. And when I say "humans" I mean this guy, and when I say "french kissing" I mean...making him fold the laundry.

am feeling a bit hypocritical posting a sponsor who sells hand crafted belts whileI myself am on a belt hiatus. As far as style....they are the "whipped cream" to a good dress (it's just the post pardum fat accentuation I don't love). And as far as my pants falling down, you're just rubbing it in. DAMN YOU WHIPPED CREAM...AND ALL THE DESSERTS YOU COMPLETE!! 

Are we still talking about belts? 

Fun fact about belts: Kiera Knightley occasionally wears them as a shirt(?) Or maybe i could give this a try

ANYway what I should be getting at is that there is nothing from stopping you from rockin' a sweet belt every now and again. And I vote we stick to good 'ole fashioned belting techniques. Without further adieu...belt away with our newest sponsor Goose and Trisser
