I would choose Brocade.
Mabel's Labels is a mom-friendly company that produces all manner of products to keep your household and all its inhabitants organized. I've written before about my love of their wondrous Tag Mates that identify your kid's clothing with peel and stick ease. But did you know they also make stationery products? The return address labels are a no-brainer, of course, being similarly sticky-backed and personalized with your choice of icon, much like the signature Mabel's Labels' classic Sticky Labels and Skinny-Minis (my personal favorites). But the Write On! Stationery Kit is a terrific way to encourage your budding letter writer to get those thank yous posted and keep in touch with summer camp friends. And their new Mama Cards… well, those are for you to keep in touch with friends and associates.
Mabel's Labels has introduced Mama Cards to keep you in circulation. Whether you're trying to get together for playdates or for some social networking, mommy blogger style, Mama Cards lets you put your digits in someone else's pocket without having to fumble for a pen and paper. Plus they come in five adorable styles. I chose the jade-ite brocade pattern. It's an easy way to let people know you want to keep in touch. (Or you can drop them in the bowl for the free lunch contests at your favorite restaurants. I won't tell!)
Mama Cards would be particularly useful as Mama Blogger Cards at one of the upcoming conferences, like BlogHer '09. In fact, Mabel's Labels is actually hosting a BlogHer Contest, in which one lucky blogger will be sent to Chicago as Mabel's Labels' chief correspondent with all expenses paid. See? Mabel's Labels does truly love you! And, hopefully, me!!!
I have been blogging for about two years now and haven't made it to any of the conferences yet. This is my year, I can feel it! Now that Jasper is weaned and Roo is getting more independent, I think that BlogHer would be a fantastic opportunity to meet many of the fabulous women I have gotten to know via the blogosphere and impress them with my vast arsenal of talents, which include impeccable table manners and low alcohol tolerance. It's been really great having a virtual support system and being able to learn from other parents who have been through the same stuff, especially since it's been rough making and holding onto friends here in Wichita, where we tend to stick out like sore thumbs. It's great sharing obsessions with which host of Blues Clues is cuter and what kids gear is truly worthy of purchase… (like Mabel's Labels, for example!) You know, the important stuff about being a mom. It's also been a blast getting to know the business people who make things for kids and families and being able to try new products out on a regular basis. Best of all is the opportunity to pass cool stuff on to my readers via frequent giveaways. I was the promotions director at my college radio station and loved being able to give away records and promo items but it is even more fun to be able to give baby and kid things away, especially to new and expectant parents.
