BlogHer. Aww Yeah.

[caption id="attachment_3531" align="aligncenter" width="512" caption="Business Card Holder by SweetHeartSinner on Etsy"]Business Card Holder by SweetHeartSinner on Etsy[/caption] So we went to this little conference, you may have heard of it?  BlogHer was AMAZING this year.  Besides the fun and interesting things to see, we were surrounded by friends old and new, and had such a good time our ears are still ringing and our hearts are still full.

Special thanks to Jon @ Toddlerpedes for letting us use his image for our cards.  LOVE YOU JON!  Those creepy buggers were a conversation starter, that's for sure.

We tried to break Twitter using the #BlogHer09 hashtag.  But the fail whale was never seen. Not by us at least.

We also won an award from Socialuxe.  An award that easily weighs 10 pounds and could probably take you in a fight.

  7. Brenda Says:

    I don’t know if all Kinko’s, or FedEx Offices :p, are the same, but when I worked at Kinko’s you had to set up the cards exactly right, especially the ones that have to be cut-to-bleed like yours. I was always nice enough to set up the files for people, but not all Fedex employees have the know-how or the willingness to wrangle with graphics the way I did.

    I would love to take a look at your business card file to see if I could set it up better for your next visit to Kinko’s.
