Mail a smile to mom for Mother’s Day! *Review & Giveaway!*


160x300_search_mdayWith all that I learned while at Hallmark (that is all coming in a whole other post 😉 ) there is one thing that I leaned that I am SO excited about! I had NO idea that you could order a physical card from, address it AND have it shipped to someone’s mailbox. 😯 This is GREAT news to not only myself, but to many others out there that stay home, or that don’t have a Hallmark close by their homes. You can log on, pick out a card (with or without sound), customize it and mail it. How much is it? Hallmark will mail this card directly to the recipient(s) at no extra charge. You pay only the cost of stamps. How AWESOME is that? Now, I can log on and send that birthday card, that anniversary card or a card just because – all for probably cheaper than loading up the kids in the van and toting over to my local Hallmark store. All it costs me is the price of a stamp; instead of fuel. I am loving this! Hallmark, this might be a no-no because I am in heaven now. I don’t want to leave my jammies and I just want to sit here and send everyone a card. I love getting actual CARDS in the mail. Sure, email is nice and fun, but a hard copy of a card (to me) shows a lot more personal touch and love. While you can send cards from the Hallmark website, you can also customize them as well; at NO extra charge! Customize the front, customize the inside and you can even customize the BACK and add your photo and custom message. I am still amazed by technology, and Hallmark as well!


Mother’s Day is literally, right around the corner. I better get on the ball and go shopping, but at least Hallmark is there for all my card needs!




This Mother’s Day, I am very excited to show you some of the new products, cards, gift wrap and more! Check out this video to show you some of the new Mother’s Day cards that you have the chance to win!

  30. For Mother’s Day I plan on rounding up the troops. Every year for Mother’s Day Weekend we do our spring cleaning. It may not sound like a great way to spend the day. But once a year, all “on-going” projects get finished; bedrooms (closets, drawers, desks, under the bed, etc) get a thurough cleaning); bathrooms get scrubbed top to bottom; basement organized; yard ready for summer (patio furniture, etc.). Top to bottom, inside out. I’m the mom, this is my weekend, and I want it done. And it does.

My kids love to be in the water and my husband and I love to take turns swimming with them…and the one of us not swimming loves to relax with and enjoy watching them. I’d love to stop by the hotel spa for a pedi if I have a chance!
