I recently received a sample pack of holiday party invites from Minted.com and was simply floored! Honestly, I have seen many invitations and holiday cards over the years, so I wasn’t expecting such fresh and modern designs. Not only were they fabulous to look at… but I found myself holding, flipping, and feeling these cards…thinking “Wow! These are so nice!”
Today, October 19th, Linda & Harriett are so thoughtful they are holding a really great event today: Cards for Just Because. In honor of her mother (who sounds like one generous and thoughtful woman), they are encourageing everyone to send a card… just because.
In the honor, and on her birthday, they are giving away note cards in exchange for a promise to send it card to someone – just because. Simply email email@example.com with your name & snail mail address, and they’ll send you a note card & envelope. That’s it, so simple!

I absolutely adore stationery so when I got the chance to review a new design from Linda & Harriett, I was thrilled! They kindly sent me a box of their newest note card design: Paper Doll Note Cards. A gorgeous card box arrived, filled with 6 fold over note cards & envelopes. Each note card letter pressed with a yellow & charcoal paper doll pattern that is just adorable! Accompanied with light gray envelopes, these note cards have such a whimsical yet modern feel- I am loving them!
I think these note cards are perfect for all ages. I can see my daughters using them to send notes to Grandma, and also myself using them to send out thank you cards or a simple hello note to a friend.
I received his DIY dinner idea from Jeanne Benedict from the DIY Network’s Weekend Entertaining and wanted to share it with you. She calls it “Boo” Spaghetti and it is really, really simple. Try it out and add a little spook to your weeknight dinner.
Jeanne’s DIY instructions:
Cook spaghetti according to package directions, making sure to keep some long noodles intact, as opposed to breaking them to fit into the pot.
Line a cookie sheet with foil. Pull a noodle out and form the word “boo” on the foil; make a few.
Bake at 350 degrees for 3 to 5 minutes until firm and place your “boos” on top of red sauce on pasta!
Simple, right? She also has made a creative “Spider Web Design on Triple Layer Guacamole, Cheese, and Egg Torte” that you can see on her blog.
