Business cards for women entrepreneurs

Running your own business as a woman can be challenging. It's of vital importance to promote yourself in a compelling way. The beginning of a new year is not only a great time to start a new business, but also a time to look again at your promotional materials and re-evaluate.
Today I would like to showcase some business cards for female professionals. All business cards are available on Zazzle and can be customized. You can choose your own fonts, font sizes and in some cases add a picture, remove stylized text or find other customizing options.

Adding a calendar can be a very practical choice when it comes to business cards. You can use the card as appointment card, circle the dates and add other information.

3. Girly business cards


We all know we can be both girly AND professional. Many women run a business targeted at other women. Adding a touch of romance, relaxation or bling, can be very helpful!

New Home - Relocation - Housewarming Party Invitations

With the arrival of a new year, a lot of people want to move house. A fresh start and new beginnings!
Of course you can find many home styling products on this blog. And you can also find inspiration on this page about home decoration with items available on Zazzle.
But today I would like to focus on the relocation announcements and housewarming parties.

1. Housewarming Party Invitations

If you are planning to throw a housewarming party, it is a good idea to find invitations well in advance to leave you time to receive your order and make sure your guests have not made other plans already. The invitations in this post are all available through Zazzle and can be customized to your personal needs. You can add driving directions if needed, or ask guests to bring something, help with some of the painting or other tasks, or you can tell them if you have a certain theme for the party.

Some more tips for a successful Housewarming Party:
  • If you have pets: explain to them that you have guests coming and help them to stay relaxed and comfortable
  • Also invite the neighbors or if you don't want to do that you can invite them on another day. Inform them ahead of possible noise
  • If you want to cook yourself, create dishes that can easily be prepared in advance, to ensure you have time for your guests during the party. Salads, a BBQ or an oven dish might work best!
  • If you expect children or have your party during the day, set up some entertaining activities for them
  • And this goes without saying: if you are doing major remodeling, make sure your bathroom and kitchen are fully functioning as your party arrives

2. Relocation Announcement Postcards


Although a lot of people do their address changes online these days, it can be more fun to send a physical card. And surprisingly: oftentimes less work!
Check out some beautiful postcards with a new home announcement:

Christmas Wedding Ideas

Are you getting married this Christmas or is someone you love tying the knot? In this post I would like to share some inspiration for wedding needs as well as wedding gifts.
I am presenting three wedding lines here:

1. Glossy Red Scrapbook Style Wedding

Red is not only the traditional Christmas color, but most importantly of course the color of love and passion.
This is a playful wedding line, in a glossy scrapbook style with festive ornaments:

You can find the entire wedding line here.

2. Twin Flame Wedding

Twin flames are created as one soul and therefore have an incredible connection with each other. Their relationship tends to be much more intense than what we generally refer to as soulmates. This wedding line is based on the concept of twin flames and expressed as candles with two flames. Of course winter is a great time to create a warm and loving atmosphere with candles and that is exactly what this wedding line does:

3. Vintage Love Birds Wedding

Vintage is still very popular and a wedding in vintage style or with vintage elements can add just that special touch.
And yes, this is also a line that has a lot of red in it ... :-)
