i remember my very first “real” job after college. i was working for the southern california tennis association. having just graduated college & now an official member of the working class, many things excited me… my first pay check, medical insurance, my lunch break. you know, all the perks of working a real 9-5er. but the most thrilling experience was my first set of business cards. i don’t know why, but seeing my name imprinted on a tiny piece of cardstock made me feel like i had finally made it.
these days i don’t work in an office, i don’t meet with important clients who need to know all the possible means of contacting me & i don’t have a fancy schmanchy title that looks impressive on cardstock. yet, i still have a business card (of sorts). i guess you could call it a “mommy card”. now before you laugh or scoff at the silliness of the idea, just take a moment & think about it. think of all the times you have scrabbled in your purse looking for a scrap piece of paper so you can scribble down your number to give to someone – maybe it’s that mom you’ve been chatting with weekly at the park, or a gal you hit it off with while waiting in the doctor’s office. i have seriously been surprised at often my little cards have come in handy… printed with my name & all the relevant contact information, they are the perfect little card to have on hand. my current cards look similar to the ones i have pictured, which i ordered from kacey at doodle bugs stationary, & i absolutely love them. but, you could always make yourself some mini-cards over at moo, or do-it-yourself using your own computer & printer.
