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 →
For years I have been sending out wishes of sweet blessings filled with abundant joy and peace to friends and family as we prepare to celebrate another religious holiday, the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah. But in all truthfulness, for the last few years, I have gotten lazy. Rather than planning ahead and keeping an eye out for the perfect L'Shanah Tovah greeting card months in advance as I did in my youth, I have waited until the last minute and ended up sending blah picture-less emails with a line or two of text. If I was feeling particularly industrious and creative, I colored the text blue.
This year I found an amazing company, PurpleTrail.com that not only has lovely selection of elegant Jewish New Years cards, they encourage their visitors to personalize their cards by adding photos, moving and changing text, and even adding embellishments and background images. And best of all, Purple Trail offers the choice of mailing your cards, printing your cards at home, or emailing them! And now for the clincher — you can send online invitations or eCards for FREE to up to 50 email recipients! If you want to send your card to more than 50 email addresses or would like to add music to your card, simply join one of Purple Trail's membership clubs — all very, very reasonably priced.
Wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year – L' Shanah Tovah
