Minted’s Elegant Online Invitations
As many of you are all too aware, we generally really dislike online invitations. Up until now, we have not enjoyed the experience. It has always been a wee bit tacky. Well, leave it to Minted to change our minds. We are happy to report, that they have developed a line of online invitation experiences that will make you smile. We never thought we would combine the terms online invitations and elegant. And that is exactly what they are. Best yet, because these invitations are still in beta, they are FREE so long as you send it to 5 recipients (not including yourself). Continue Reading →
Rent a Digital Camera for Your Special Event or Vacation!
Are you hosting a special event or taking a vacation and want photos that are seriously better than the ones you can capture via your phone camera? Yet have no interest in investing in a professional photographer let alone spring for the cost of the equipment. Have we found an option for you! If you have not yet heard, Tiny Prints‘ sister company BorrowLenses allows you to rent digital camera equipment for a fraction of the cost of purchasing it.
We love this idea because seldom do most of us need a professional quality camera, it would be great to have occasionally. Yes, you do need to plan a bit in advance so it can be delivered to your door in time. But at least you will know that next time you need a camera you can again choose from the latest technology and will not be stuck with an outdated camera unsuited for your current needs.
Which Camera to Rent
Since we know so little about cameras, we have been reluctant to recommend any, but today we found this fabulous camera review by David Pogue on the Sony a6300 camera. And after checking that BorrowLenses actually carries this camera, felt compelled to share. According to the article this Sony a6300 mirrorless digital camera retails for $1,150 with a lens ($998.00 for the body only) but BorrowLenses offers the exact same Sony a6300 mirrorless digital camera for $68.00 plus the cost of a lens of your choosing.
Think Holiday Cards!
One more thought >> BorrowLenses even offers a three day rental option for just $47.00 plus the cost of the lens which might be ideal if you want to spend an entire weekend trying to capture the perfect holiday card photo. They even have portrait packages that include all the equipment needed for taking perfect portraits. Continue Reading →

One more thing >> even though the price of the flip flop bags seem higher, you can easily reduce that price to $6.30 (minus the 30% discount) by eliminating the design on the back.

Printable Patriotic Games
Don’t forget to print out a few printable patriotic games for your Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day Celebration Parties. They are not very expensive so even if you don’t end up using them this time, you will have unlimited printouts for 90 days which takes you way past Labor Day.
We love to have these games on hand just in case … just in case it rains, just in case the little kids (or the big kids) get antsy, just in case your party extends well into the evening after the sun goes down and the lawn games get put away. Printable games are also a perfect evening activity when camping since they are light weight and easy to transport. Consider printing on recycled paper. Additionally, if you are looking for classroom activities for a patriotic school party, these are both educational and fun.
All six of these printable patriotic games will keep your guests guessing and laughing plus you can personalize all of them.
