Happy Halloween!

In Uncategorized on October 31, 2007 at 9:28 pm


Tonight it’s Halloween, and how I wish my little ones would join in the celebrations!

My son has never wanted to dress up or go “trick or treating”, and now that he’s eleven he’s even more reluctant! Little Angel (bless her) is scared to death of anyone dressed up in a spooky costume! She won’t even go near the Halloween section in the supermarket as she’s frightened that the sinister display will somehow come to life…

Back when I was a kid, I used to plan my costume weeks in advance. I loved Halloween, more for the spirit of the evening than for the sweeties I’d bring home at the end of the night! My friends and I would sit round each other’s houses until our parents made us come home, telling each other spooky stories, trying to be the storyteller who could scare the others the most. This year, I’m resigned to watching (slightly) scary movies with my son, who luckily does seem to have inherited my passion for horror flicks!

Wishing all of you a very happy Halloween!

Free stationary and business cards!

I’m always on the look-out for bargains, and this really is one of the best I’ve found in recent weeks!

Vistaprint, famed for their 250 free business cards offer, are now offering even more personalized stationary for free! You can choose from desk calendars, holiday cards, postcards and even more. You only need to pay for the postage!

As Christmas is only a couple of months away, this could be a great opportunity to bag a few free stocking fillers for your family and friends. Or you could choose the free business cards for yourself, and use these to help promote your blog!

My husband yesterday received the business cards he ordered to help promote his cell-phone shop, and he’s rather pleased with how good they look. What’s more, as we are now Vistaprint customers, we’ve been emailed even more great offers (free T-shirts, personalized rubber stamps and notecards) which are only available to customers who have completed an order.

Why not try Vistaprint for yourself? As all these offers are free, you really have nothing to lose!
