20 FREE holiday cards! New England photographer: Jessica Hughes November 19, 2009

Now HERE is a business I wish I’d known about exactly 4 years ago when I lived in Central MA!

I’ve recently heard about Jessica Hughes, a fabulous photographer based out of Central MA. I love that she works with natural lighting and travels to YOU. Check out her site to see some of her sample work… it is amazing.

So, how do you get those 20 FREE holiday cards? Just book your photo session by December 5, 2009. It’s that easy!

Some ideas for photo opps include couples/engagements
, high school seniors,
 families
, children of all ages, maternity, newborns
, glamour/fashion, and don’t forget those holiday pics! (Having a photographer that travels to you for newborn photos is especially helpful. I’m talking from first-hand experience here. Just imagine photos of your sweet newborn in the natural light of his or her nursery in your arms!)

So, all you New Englanders (and I know we have lots of readers across the region), now is the time to give her a buzz to book your photo session! And just think how appreciative someone would be if you gave a photo session with Jessica Hughes as a Christmas or baby gift!

 

FREE monogramming on children’s gifts! November 9, 2009

Ok, I’m really spilling the beans here… This is my GO-TO source for baby/kid gifts. I first met Terri, the owner/founder of Brooke’s Line a few years ago at a craft fair in the Dallas area, and since then I’ve been a loyal customer. By now you know I’m a sucker for anything monogrammed, especially if it is soft and cuddly (check out their fleece blankets and plush cozies), or comes trimmed in eyelet lace (the most adorable diaper covers). Brooke’s Line covers those bases and more, and most items are $25 or less, some as low as $8!

So, how do you get the FREE MONOGRAMMING? Easy! Just enter code “BRNOV2009” in the comments section at check-out and you’ll get FREE MONOGRAMMING on your order — a savings of $5. (Since this is such a sweet deal on such sweet gifts, the code is limited to one free monogram per customer per order.)

And don’t just limit yourself to baby gifts… Think about tooth pillows for “big kids” who will soon await the Tooth Fairy, autograph pillows for kiddos about to have their first slumber parties, and comfortable lap desks to make car trips more fun!
