I recently was asked by Pear Tree Greetings to check out their Christmas cards and design a fun way to display cards around the house. I wanted a fun, unique way to show off the gorgeous cards we get from friends and family- and wanted to incorporate some of our beloved family antiques to do it- so I made this fun and festive Vintage Ski Christmas Card Display!
We all know it is tough to meet new mommy friends especially when you are new in town. Read below as one of our Pearistas, See Vanessa Craft, talks about her experience meeting new mommy friends and tips that can help you!

I remember that first week of being a new stay at home mom, my husband had to return to work and my mom left back on a plane to New Mexico. It was just me, responsible for keeping this tiny little newborn alive. Cue freak out! Whether you are a working mom or stay at home mom, that transition into your new mom role can be tough. I went from working 70+ hours a week, in a very social job, to only having my colicky newborn to talk to. I loved being able to stay at home with my baby, but we are naturally hardwired to connect to other people – other people that can communicate back with more than a coo or giggle (as priceless as those moments are). I quickly discovered the importance of mommy friends, but how does one make mommy friends? Here are my 5 tips for meeting mommy friends.

Today is a good day to let a teacher know how much you appreciate them! (Actually, any day is a good day to do that!) Whether it’s a word of thanks, a note or a gift, it truly is the thought that counts. And if you’re not ready with something today, the end of the school year is the next best time to show your appreciation.
