I've been searching for ideas on the inexpensive promotional items to include along with purchases and after seeing so many awesome custom pencils, for projects at school and then on various blogs, I was finally won over. I've always loved to write with oldschool pencils as opposed to mechanical ones and so I couldn't resist ordering them in different colors for myself. I found that they make great gifts as well for a friend or your fellow entrepreneur friend. I ordered some for my sister with here name saying "Vivian was here" and she loved them! I also ordered for some for my pops who's a carpenter with his business logo and is enjoying them as well I hope.
I ordered them from and love that the minimum order is only 10 and you can choose different colors for them. A giant plus is that they are usually shipped amazingly fast so if you're like me and want to start using them asap, it's highly likely you will be within days!

You never would have guessed it'd be Karl Lagerfeld right?! Might as well make it a tea party because they come in a pack of 5 from FredFlare! It's also quite nice that some of the proceeds go to a charity that helps disabled children... which doubles as a nice topic for your tea party (one that doesn't include just you and your tea cup and tea celeb of course...unless you'd prefer it that way).

I'm a geek for gadgets and weird knick knacks. Here are some that I would love from fredflare

1. Tea Sub $18 2. Peace Of Cake Mold $28 3. Gin and Titonic Ice Cube Tray $12
4. Flexible Roll-up Piano $58 5. Origami Sticky note $6 6. Mustache Bandages $9

It's finally the time of the year when it seems that all the Almond trees have put on big white coats of fluff.

And it's nothing short of wonderful!

There was even an Almond Blossom Festival in town to celebrate...

Sadly though, all of these photos were taken last week and the windy weather we've been having here lately has almost stripped them all of their coats.
But then again, this has caused for even more interesting photos :). More to come soon!
