I feel very lucky to share with you today these adorable birthday invitations from Katiedid Designs. Katie offers a wonderful selection of fully customizable invitations. Additionally, she offers matching favors including stickers, thank you cards, cupcake toppers, cupcake wrappers, water bottle wrappers, address labels and so much more!!

I received the custom invitation pictured below (the bottom portion includes the date, time, and location of the party) for my baby Emily’s 1st birthday. Katie did a great job! The color and clarity of the invitations are significantly better than invitations I have ordered in the past and the paper is a thick cardstock. Working with Katie was a great experience because she is very knowledgeable, thorough, friendly and very quick to respond to questions or requests.

Katie also coordinated these stickers and matching “Thank You” cards for Emily’s birthday! What could possibly make Katiedid Designs better? The price. Katie’s designs are a sensible option because she is able to create one-of-a-kind, fully customizable products at affordable prices. And one lucky winner will get the opportunity to create a beautiful party pack for an upcoming birthday courtesy of Katiedid Designs.

Starting today through 4/23 at 11:59 EST you can enter to win either an invitation design of choice (or birth announcements) and 25 prints for free OR Katie’s bestest party package; which is the invite design + any 4 matching favor designs (digital files only). Enter today and make sure to visit BMotG again each day to learn more about other great opportunities to add a special touch to your child’s birthday this year! Katie has generously offered a 20% off discount code for her digital designs using code: BUSYMOMFRIENDS.

I absolutely love serioses online casino. Love it! When my husband and I go married almost 11 years ago I was fortunate to have a serioses online casino bridal shower thrown for me by my co-workers. It was so much fun, we had delicious food and I ended up with lots of serioses online casino goodies! I am pretty sure most of my friends bought things for themselves too. I can tell you this…..We eat almost every meal at home. We eat out maybe twice a month. We are a family of 5 (now) AND I still have most of the serioses online casino items I received almost 11 years ago!

Recently a friend of mine decided to become a Pampered Chef consultant.  She wanted someone to host an online party and I agreed to help her out and to have some FUN!  If you decide you want to order something then make sure you take advantage of the April specials.  If you spend $60 or more you get some free items and if you spend $100 or more you get more free products to choose from.  Click that link for full details, but I will tell that the FREE items fit in very well with Earth Day!

If you choose to take advantage of these FREE items, make sure you add them to your cart at checkout!

Are you an early shopper?  If you are, don’t miss the Mother’s Day specials going on.  These items will only be available  during April!! So you must act quickly.
