New Business Cards and a Giveaway from Moo.... and Some Weekend Peeks

Happy Monday!!!  I have a little giveaway for you today and also some new business cards to show you, but before I do I wanted to share a couple snippets from our weekend.

Sawyer had his first ever basketball game.  It was AWESOME!  He was the shortest kid on the court, and the cutest, if you ask me.  See the little guy- that's my boy!
 I love this picture because it captures just how much fun he was having.

And I love this one because Chris and I almost peed our pants laughing at Sawyer's dribble.. He is short anyhow, and then he keeps that ball LOW to the ground.  It's like a 3" dribble.  No one's gonna be able to steal that ball because they'd have to get on the floor to do it!

That was Saturday morning.  After that I worked on cleaning up the garage a bit, and cleaning in the basement.  I have been in that new year purge/organization mode and spent last week organizing closets, and cleaning out!  I already took a carload to Goodwill Friday, and will be making another trip this week.  It always feels so good.... wiping the slate clean!  It's much easier to start a new year and make plans if things around you are organized and clean.  And it always spurs a project.... always!

That being said, Sunday, I began a project.  I used paint and items I had on hand, and just need a couple minor things and then will be able to share.  But for now, here's a little sneak peek..... (and if you follow me on instagram you know what I am up to!)

Now let's check out the new business cards I was telling you about!  Some of you know I have a business with my partner Sarah, called Persephone.  We sell our vintage upcycled goods at the Stylish Patina Barn in Frederick, MD.  We've worked together for just about a year now, and up til now, we did not have business cards.  Shame on us!!!  Recently, Moo contacted me to see if I would like to try out some of their business cards.  I was thrilled since we really needed some!

Working with Moo.com is really simple.  You can upload your own design, and then add your own text as well.  I am not that savvy when it comes to the technological sides of most things, and even I can use it.  That's a user-fiendly website for you!  Here is a look at our new cards!

They are printed on quality glossy cardstock.  As you can see I added my graphic and centered it, and then I added our tagline below it.... "Where Vintage & Awesome Collide".  Yep, that's us!

I was also given the chance to giveaway 3 sets of 100 classic business cards from Moo.com!  I know that many of my readers have their own businesses and etsy shops, so of course I took Moo up on that offer since I thought they would be useful and appreciated.

Here's how to enter....

Leave me a comment letting me know what you would use your business cards for!

That's all there is to it!  The giveaway will close Saturday, January 12 at midnight EST.  I will use random.org to pick the winner next Sunday.   I will email the winner, so make sure your ID is linked to an email, or that you leave me an email address in your comment.

Best of luck!

Best tag line ever! I would use the business cards to replace the ones I currently have for my painting business. The type is microscopic so you can't even read them!

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

Looks like Sawyer loves baketball! And believe it or not, I do not have any business cards - ha! Crazy right? It's on my to do list!

Holly @ BeachCoveJewelry said...

I really like the ones you designed! I would use them for my year shop! I really need some nice new ones!

Storywood Designs said...

Cassie, I had to post because your pictures of Sawyer were so cute! My James had his first bball game this weekend and he too is the smallest kids on the court. I was so worried that he'd feel the height disadvantage when the games started but he had a blast. Glad Sawyer did too! Your new business cards look great. My current ones have the wrong email address - it'd be great be able to update that!

Jennifer {The Chronicles of Home} said...

They came out great! I'd love to try out Moo for cards. Been meaning to have them made for months now but haven't gotten around to it. Glad to know of this new source, had never heard of them before!

Mel Mac said...

I am reminded of my boy when he was little, when I saw the photo of Sawyer having so much fun; pure bliss!

I would like some business cards too, yours are adorable; simple and to the point.

Silvia said...

I dont have business cards yet so these would really be nice!

Sarah AKA The Thriftress said...

We have business cards!!! Looks like Sawyer had a good time at basketball.

Our Pinteresting Family said...

Your little guy is just too cute! I've never had a business card, would it be bad if I gave them to a friend if I won them? Maybe Sharon..lol. Hope you had a great weekend and I love your tag line on your card. :)

Julia Konya said...

What an awesome giveaway. I have some business cards on Moo that I just never ordered, So I could totally use it for my Etsy shop.
I have been purging as well but am not done yet. Love the basket ball photos, so cute.
By the way the instagram link didn't work for me. I looked for you already on instagram before and couldn't find you.

Christy @ MCH PHOTOGRAPHY said...

Love your cards & your logo, I have been wanting to try Moo. I am rebranding my Etsy store and trying to promote it as I just became a stay at home mom for the first time and my shop will be my income.

Di said...

Wow that would be great! I would use the cards for my Etsy shop and blog. Thanks for a giveaway into the new year. Di

Kirby Dunton Carespodi said...

Look at Sawyer go! I would use business cards for Haven to try to get three more readers. Which means I'll have to pass out a hundred.

Andrea said...

What a cutie Sawyer is. Purging is the best way to start the New Year. I saw your project on Instagram. Adorable! Emmy is going to be in heaven.

Lisa said...

I would love to try Moo business cards to promote my custom pet portrait business!

Robin @ Happily Home, After said...

Super catchy, fun and memorable tagline! Would love to hear {if you haven't already shared before} how you choose Persephone as the business name ... that name has significance to me as well. I'd use the Moo business cards as part of my in real life networking as I'm exploring ideas & opportunities to reenter the business world. Happy New Year Cassie! Robin

Kelly Smith said...

Love the pics. I miss those days. Joey is playing basketball as well, but he has outgrown two of his sisters already, so I no longer have the luxury of watching "the little guy." Enjoy every minute of it! It goes by way too fast.

Lisa @ Turning Tables said...

I love that little nook. Now Emmy can grow up to be the same DIY-genius that her mama is! :) I would like business cards to advertise my new baby teething necklace biz! They haven't flown off of the shelves yet (lol), so the business cards would probably help. xo

Lisa @ Turning Tables said...

Oh...and Sawyer = too adorable to really comment on. Speechless.

I love Moo. I just ordered stickers for my new business and couldn't be happier with the results. Needless to say, new business cards are a necessity for a new business so you know what I"d do with them:) Love the sneak peek. Can't wait for it all. I also love the joy on your son's face in those photos.

I would use these cards to repay a wonderful friend of mine for all she has done for me through the few years I have known her. SHe has an Etsy shop and I believe they would be great to drop in her packages as she ships her sold items to their new home.
