This is what all of us kids got my mom for Christmas this year. My mom, Mimi as she is called by my kids. And us I guess. Miss Pomp is Titi, and lets just say we have all been known to refer to each of them as Titi and Mimi, even if there is ner a grandchild or nephew to be found. Sentences like “Titi is ty-ard” are often spoken in the first person, and “Heeeeyyyyy Tiiiiiii-Tiiiiii” are yelled out by a certain Titi’s husband when they are the only two goon-berries around. My mom has started a cookie company, since she has the best cookies ever. Like really really good, hearty hefty, killer ingredients, kick-your-butt-you-other-wimpy-cookies cookies. She’s got them in a restaurant (Smoqe- my linky things not working so here is the site http://www.smoqe.com/home.html), and a coffee house (Verve http://www.vervecoffeeroasters.com/). So she’s legit. And any legit business needs a website and business cards. Hence her Christmas present. We made her these business cards with balsa wood and a customized rubber stamp. We knew she couldn’t have no run of the mill paper business card. She’s like me, (or I should say I’m like her), and she loves things that are just a bit out the ordinary, and not-everybody-has-this kind of fare. Balsa wood is pretty great stuff. It’s thin enough to be cut like paper, and is actually moldable (with a little steam and some magic with the fingers). When her business grows, this won’t be the best plan for mass producing cards, but it’s a fun start till we can get her some professionally screen printed cards on balsa wood, or however they do that.
