Kim is the owner of Kim’s Custom Gifts and she has been a graphic designer for over seven years. She’s now working from home while she raises her daughter (3) and son (11 months). She loves being able to make life events more memorable with special announcement and invitations.
She designs completely customizable birthday party invitations, wedding invitations, Christmas photo cards, birth announcements, baby and wedding shower invitations and more and sells them on her Etsy site. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, Kim loves doing custom orders and would be more than happy to make your ideas a reality.
She designed some adorable cards and matching labels for me and I was thoroughly impressed with her work. It was top notch and professional and her turn-around time was excellent, too!
If you don’t have graphic design skills, but you’d like to have a professional holiday photo card made, Kim only charges $15 to design holiday cards! Once your design is customized and approved by you, she’ll send over the high-resolution file which you can have printed locally or online.
Kim is offering a free matching DIY cupcake topper/favor tag sheet with any birthday party invitation or shower invitation order through November 30, 2010. Just mention FREEMSM with your order to receive this offer!

You can get free ebooks, audiobooks and video downloads from OverDrive Media with certain Public Library cards. Just put in your zip code to find a library that participates. I am a big audiobook fan and I download audio books right to my iPod from this website! -Jan
A number of months ago, Federated Media (my ad network) contacted me about possibly doing a Gift Guide for Christmas. I’ve never done a Gift Guide before because I’m a minimalist and all and didn’t think I could come up with enough items I could wholeheartedly encourage you to considering buying to actually put together a gift guide!
But the more I discussed the possibility with Federated Media and thought about it, the more I realized this could be a great win-win! So, I’m excited to tell you that Pier 1 is underwriting my first-ever Christmas Gift Guide and for the next six weeks, I’ll be sharing about one of my favorite kitchen items every Wednesday. This will be an item which has been given as a gift to me and which I’ve used over and over and over in my own kitchen.
Not only will I be telling you about my six favorite kitchen items, but I’ll be giving one (or more!) of each of them away to a reader here each week!
SewMamaSew has one of the most comprehensive posts on making your own cloth diapers I’ve ever seen. You’ll definitely want to read and bookmark it for reference if this is a subject you’re interested in.
