Addicted to Pinterest
If you haven't yet heard about the latest social media craze, then you might live in a closet. Pinterest is keeping woman up late at night, increasing the electric bill with hours of 'pinning', and is helping moms feel like underachievers all across America!
Pinterest is for the crafty and culinary experts at heart. It is a way to catalog all the things you'd like to have, make, and wish you had the time to do.
I, myself, am addicted. I find that I'm 'liking' and 'pinning' things for the kids I don't have and recipes I'll never make.
But nevermind all that. For businesses, Pinterest can be a fantastic way to promote your products, simply by listing them and allowing other to like or pin them.
On my Pinterest page I've created multiple pages for the events I host. It's a great way to keep track of fun ideas for years to come and for future attendees to get a feel for the silliness.
However... you will NEVER see my secrets posted on Pinterest. I may be creative, but I'm not crazy. You have to attend a MY BIG DAY event to appreciate the little things that the internet just can't give you!
Creative Holiday Cards
This gal is the cat's pajamas!
CBS news recently did a storty on Suzanne Heintz, a gal from Denver, CO who shares in my passion for silly Christmas cards.
Suzanne, unmarried, poses with a mannequin husband and daughter for all of her holiday cards.
The cards are silly and imitate the greeting cards we all receive every year, filled with family photos.
What photos do you send as a single gal?
Why not a card with a 'fake' family. It makes people laugh, and stops them from asking, "Are you married yet?" This is my kinda girl!

The Top 5 New Year's Eve Traditions!
I was doing a bit of research on traditions and superstitions for New Year's Eve and came across this interesting article By Davina Ajani.
I must admit, some of these I've NEVER heard of-- but are good to know for future reference, or at least for conversation making.
Ever wonder why people kiss at midnight on New Years? Or why people scream when the clock strikes twelve? Yes, sometimes it’s because they have consumed a little too much champagne, but did you know it’s also a tradition which has developed over the years due to superstition. Here are some New Years traditions explained, and the history behind them:
1. The Midnight Kiss: The reason you are supposedly supposed to kiss someone at midnight, is because otherwise it is believed that the rest of the year means you will face a year of coldness and lack of affection.
2. Food: Some believe that if you eat black-eyed peas on New Years Day it will attract good luck and fortune. Some also eat ham hocks, collard greens or even cabbage to bring in “luck”. The food to stay away from? Chicken or turkey. It is believed that eating poultry will bring misfortune.
3. New Clothes: It is believed that if you do not wear new clothes on January 1st, you will not be receiving many new garments in the new year. Red clothing is preferred for New Year’s Day since red is considered a happy color, and is sure to attract a brighter future for the wearer.
4. Making Noise At Midnight: On New Year’s Eve when the clock strikes midnight people blow on horns, cheer, set off fireworks. Why? It is believed that the loud noise scares away evil spirits. So, not only are you ringing in the new year but you will be starting the new year free from evil.
5. Direction of The Wind: The direction of the wind on New Year’s morning is said to predict prophesies about the coming year. Wind from the south, expect money and happiness. Wind from the north, foresees a year of foul weather. Wind from the east brings famine and bad luck, while wind from the west brings milk and fish, but the death of someone important. No wind = joy and prosperity throughout the year.
Now you know! Hope to see you on December 31st this year at Festivus!
