Hump Day! and Give-A-Way
Hello and Happy Belated WEDNESDAY! Today we bring you a very special post… we are being featured in the project spotlight on Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons! Eeek — how exciting! In conjunction, we want to celebrate with an amazing give-a-way… a $25 Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons gift card! It doesn’t get any more exciting than that! More details below!
But first… do you know what day it is? Well, technically, it’s Friday… BUT let’s pretend it’s… HUMP DAY! Ever have a bum week at work? Need a mid-week pick-me-up? Want to spread some joy around the office?
Well, I think we’re all at least a little familiar with the GEICO commercial… and for those of you who need a refresher (or are addicted like I am!), I’ve got the YouTube recast for you (below!). With the Hump Day craze sweeping the nation, I though what better opportunity to jump on the bandwagon and spread some joy on a random Wednesday? I mean really, who doesn’t love a talking camel? Introducing… Hump Day cookies!
I can’t take all the credit for this cute little guy. Anyone who knows me also knows that I cannot cook, bake, and the microwave is iffy sometimes. I bought these cookies from a local vendor Katie Kakes Design. Be sure to check out her Facebook page for all the amazing things she can do in the kitchen! I just wrapped these little guys up in a cellophane bag (no one wants germs!) and added a Hump Day tag. For the tag itself, I used a tag in the Layered Tags 2 Cutting Files from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. I slightly modified the file to create an “envelope” to slide in a business card. This would also be great for any type of note or sentiment! For the tag pattern, I am in love, love, love with the Pumpkin Spice collection from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons — super cute! I’m actually in love with all PPPR paper patterns, but this one specifically set off the theme of this project perfectly! Put it all together and voila, instant camel love!
Needless to say, these were a HUGE hit at work! It turned into a day-long celebration — I still have “Whoot Whoot” ringing in my ears! The contagious energy inspired me to create a documentary, if you will: Camels in the Workplace. Hope you enjoy, we sure did!
So what other things can we do to lift our spirits around the office? With all the holidays coming up, I’m sure you have some great ideas! And with this awesome give-a-way, imagine all the things you could get inspired with from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons! How do you enter? Thanks for asking! All you have to do is two simple things…
