To support the relief efforts for the devastating Haiti earthquake, proceeds from the shop's sales until the end of this month will be donated to American Red Cross Haiti Relief & Development. If you do not need orangekisses yet can spare a little bit of your fortunes, please visit the ARC link and give a little bit of yourself. I believe in the power of giving and what returns to you when you give is even greater. It is at times of such tragedy when we should open our pockets and hearst even more than we normally do, so I urge anyone who comes across this blog to please, give a little bit of yourself to save a life, a community.
Have a happy day & week!!

The holidays are over but we all know what's right around the corner! Wedding season~~! I just love everything about weddings. It is full of emotions, excitement, and yes even stress, but well worth stress in my opinion. To all brides and brides-to-be...congratulations and enjoy every second of planning!
This week/weekend will have me working on orders 24 hours a day! I received an order from an event production company out in NYC that'll keep me quite busy as well as other orders from clients with some amazing choices of color combos. I learn so much from clients and their keen eye for colors. Kudos to all of you!!
Here is a photo from a client who recently purchased orangekisses. Just look how bright and cheerful those colors are! Brings a smile, doesn't it? :)

So, my Christmas came early this year when I got an order from her and as if that wasn't enough, she showcased some photos of her orangekisses poms in her lovely home on her blog. My jaw might just be permanently dislocated by now.
Happy Turkey Day!
So this brings us to the upcoming Black Friday/Cyber Monday. We have been searching online for Friday's deals on TV and have also saved up the funds needed to make this overdue purchase. I have never shopped on a Black Friday. I know, can you believe it? I have however done the crazy "get up at 2am and wait in line for the new Wii outside a Sears in freezing cold" before. And it was not fun. I vowed to NEVER do anything like that ever again. So, should I wait at 3am outside a WalMart or Target this Friday to save maybe 50 bucks on a TV? I should mention that I have work that morning at 8am. Is it worth it - the sleep deprivation, the cold, the wait, the competition and race to the electronics aisle as soon as the doors open? Lets not forget I will be about 9lbs heavier from the Thanksgiving dinner just 7 hours prior!
There is one place you can get great deals without waiting in the cold at 3am! Etsy! This Friday and throughout the weekend, you can get up at 10am, not brush your teeth, stay in your warm PJ's while partaking in Black Friday Cyber Monday deals. The shop has some deals too so check it out! You won't have to elbow anyone while you shop!
Free Shipping...$3 poms...3 free poms...hooray!!Stay tuned for my Black Friday TV update...maybe I will be brave enough.

Then what do I find this morning at Albertson's? Tada~~~
I tell you - God does intervene!!! Now, it's not exactly Starbucks PM but you know what, it's pretty darn close...close enough for me to stock up on these suckers for like the next 4 months so I don't go through the withdrawals. And 1 bottle of this costs less than 1 Starbucks PM! God bless the folks at Coffee-mate!
Thanksgiving is less than a week away! Have you set your dinner plans - who/when/where? Hope everyone has a safe, warm, happy Thanksgiving and Black Friday...I'll be at work..boo for me.

I couldn't agree more with all of you that the only thing I wish for this Christmas is special time spent with family and hopefully we can all watch what we spend during these hard times! It has been a rough year all around for us also but I know we can only go up from here! :) Thank you all again for leaving your precious comments! Have a happy week!
