New Business Card Excitement!!

Hello everyone!
I'm so excited to show you my new business cards!! I had them delivered through VistaPrint, and I was able to design them in a "DIY" fashion through PicMonkey. I absolutely love PicMonkey. I used their photo-editing abilities back when they were PicNik, and they are still just as user-friendly. My header, Facebook Cover, and Etsy Banner were all created using PicMonkey. 

I knew I wanted to create my own business cards with my own "NoWayMommyCrafts" flare. I first did a quick Google search for "DIY business cards with PicMonkey" and came up with Heather's tutorial from She does a great job explaining PicMonkey and what she did to make her Business cars. Even if you’re a seasoned PicMonkey user, it’s always nice to have a "step by step" to keep you on track. 

Heather mentioned a different printing company for her business cards. I actually had a coupon from VistaPrint, so that was the best route for me! Overall I'm so pumped to have my business cards ready to go! 

Last night I got to put them into use! I provided the desserts for an Open House: Brownie Pops (Turtle, Andes Mints, & Rocky Road), Puppy Chow, & decorated Sugar Cookies. Although I don't usually create edibles for events (to much of it being a cake decorator for seven years) I'll make exceptions every once in a while. I did, however, use last night as an opportunity to advertise my Etsy shop. And business cards are always a necessity for quick advertisement! 

And to show you my portable advertisers...

Halloween Household Craziness

It’s Monday again! I hope you had a great weekend. Here at NoWayMommy’s, we have had a hectic go of the last four days. I’m sorry Wednesday didn’t happen. My handsome, little, stubborn boy decided after Mommy made his Super costume that he didn’t want to be Super Man anymore. Now usually I would tell him that he has to stick with the choice he made, but his cap decided to make a disappearing act. In other words, my Wednesday was spent searching for a last minute Iron Man costume. And of course he was a cute little Iron Man!

It's been crazy around here, I apologize I wasn't able to meet that Wednesday deadline, but I'm hoping to show more soon!

If you have any awesome DIY tips you’d like to share, that’d be greatly appreciated!
