UNLVino - A Wonderful Night at the Paris Hotel!

Our new cocktail napkins make their debut at UNLVino!

We ventured away from our computers and stopped designing and writing to participate in the UNLVino event on Saturday, April 20th. We sold many of our newly designed wine glasses, wine charms, keychains, cocktail napkins and greeting cards to raise money for Charity and what a great night it was! We enjoyed meeting so many of you and we appreciate you helping us to raise money for UNLV scholarships!! Southern Wine and Spirits, The Paris Hotel and UNLV did a wonderful job hosting the event!  We even managed to take our picture with a local celebrity, "The General" from the Animal Planet's TV show "Tanked" was there. What a fun guy he was. Let's just say, if business keeps booming, you may soon see a Working Girls inspired  fish tank on their television show. Thanks for making it such a fun and memorable night, and a special shout out to our rockstar crew, we couldn't have done it without you Carmel, Joe and Donna!

Our new glasses were sold at the event. They are now also available at Kohls.com

Lots of styles to choose from.

Mother of the Year Book: Crazy, Funny and True advice from Real Moms!

A few years ago, Jodi and I were talking about our childhood and our mothers and everything we put them through. And of course with Jodi having a couple teenagers of her own at that time, we started lamenting that it would be great if there was an actual gift book out there that truly covered the magnitude of what most mothers experience. Of course there is the joy, the excitement, the sweetness, but what about all those other moments. When your patience is running low, when tempers flare or a singular event causes you to doubt your own sanity. So with that idea in mind, we took to the streets (well Facebook and email anyway) and gathered and edited your stories and drew the artwork and wala, here it is. Our brand new Mother of the Year book. The book is hard cover, 72 pages long with colorful graphics on one page and a sane or not so sane pieces of true advice from real mom's telling it like it is. The book is available for purchase now at Barnes and Noble, Willow Creek Press and signed copies can be purchased at Working Girls Inc.

Now we know it's not likely going to win any pulitzer prize for literary accomplishments but that was never our intention. We just wanted to make mom's laugh. We wanted to capture the real moments of motherhood and hi-light that this whole experience is not a 100 yard dash but a long marathon and if you are getting tired, take heed. Thousands even millions have gone before you and survived and one day you'll back with bemusement, wonder and even pride 
that you not only survived motherhood, 
you thrived.
