Show and Tell Monday, April 27, 2009

What a glorious Monday it is. In my little part of the world (Michigan), the sun is shining brightly, there's a lovely breeze, and it's heading to the mid-80's today. Wait! Mid' 80's? Only about 20 degrees higher than normal. Oh no, it can't be Summer yet. I need those tempting days in the 50's and 60's that entice me to wander outside and work in the yard. It is NOT going to happen in this weather, I assure you.

But, I am wandering here. Let me share with you our newest product line. Custom Personalized Ribbons - beautiful double-faced satin ribbons too.

I have been working on this product line for some time and I cannot tell you how excited I am to finally introduce it to you.

You can now order special, custom-printed ribbons for event, gift-giving, and branding. Yes, what a thoughtful touch to put on outgoing purchases. Your customers will surely remember you and come back for more.

We have a tremendous 576 possibilities made up from your choice of combinations from 12 ribbon colors, 6 print colors, two lettering styles, and 4 ribbon sizes. If you add the ability to choose your own font, the sky is the limit. We can also add small icons (one color only - same as print color) to your ribbon. An example could be a bird, or a flower, or fleur de lis, etc.

If you need a ribbon color not found in our line-up, just email us. We love custom orders and will work to find the perfect solution for you.

So, hop on over to to place your order. Today is the day.

...til next time........

Pink Friday at BITB and Make Mine Pink

Please join us for shopping with a twist on Friday April 10, 2009 as we present For The Birds.

Spring is here, and you don't even need to look outside your kitchen window or open your front door to know it. Just waking up to the sweet melody of a backyard robin cheerily singing outside your window is enough to tell you that life is renewed and spring is reborn. The birds of spring have returned and the earth reawakens.Outside, in our fenced yards and open fields, brightly colored bluebirds and streaked song sparrows flit between tree branches and land carefully among the budding leaves. Singing songs of love to each other, chirping madly over jealousies. Bringing home odds and ends to build their nests - bits of bright string, broken twigs. Items insignificant to everyone else, but the stuff of life for the feathered set.

No matter where we live, or what the season, avian accessories create eternal springtime in our homes too. Birds and their nests placed carefully upon our shelves, painted delicately on a wall, stitched on a delicate needlepoint. Perhaps we invite into our homes the same birds we see each spring. A veritable rainbow of color unfurls inside and out of our homes in the hopes of eternal spring.

I have designed some beautiful new Springtime Celebration stationery featuring vintage birds and cottagy accessories. For all purchases today, I am including $16 worth of freebies - including free shipping and personalization! So, run on over to Business in THE Bag and see what we have to offer. You won't be disappointed!

... and then hop on over to Make Mine Pink to check out what all the other participating boutiques are offering for this fun Bird theme.
