My Favorite Paperless Post Designers For Cards and Invitations

I just missed my friend’s baby shower down in LA and I’m bummed. I have to make it up to her some how. Being miles apart, having a kid, trying to figure out life… doesn’t make it any easier. Sometimes I don’t even have time to go pick up a gift and mail it. Yes, I’m one of those horrible procrastinating friends. Which is why I’m sort of thankful for what technology can do for us. It got me thinking about Paperless Post. Incase you didn’t know, Paperless Post is an e-card platform.

Grocery Outlet actually has amazing deals on wine and food, but it is not just the price that matters- it’s what you do with it! So that is why I wanted to show how you can live like a San Franciscan and dine at your hearts content, whether it’s by yourself, a date night or with kids! …

I’m not a crafty person and DIY’s are just plain time consuming and can get expensive. But sometimes being a mom calls for being creative, especially when it comes to finding activities for their child. So to solve this problem, I created the “Mommy DIY Hacks” section, to compile the easiest DIY hacks I come across, because honestly who has the time?
