The holidays are coming, and with all the parties, presents and people comes a lot of work, stress and hassle. We could all use a sympathetic ear and a friendly word of advice on how to get through this holiday season without losing our sanity. Where to start? Well, how about a party? Yup, what would the holidays be without a party?! Next week I'm co-hosting a Twitter Party with Cardstore.com, and you're all invited to join us as we share tips to get you through the season, ways to deal with holiday stress, and ideas for making your holidays memorable.
Cardstore.com combines beautiful artwork, personalized greetings and professional printing to create premium, one-of-a-kind greeting cards, invitations, announcements. Their collection of gorgeous holiday cards -- for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hannukah and the New Year -- are the perfect way for you to greet family and friends in a stylish, memorable way, and they've got some great time-saving services to make sending holiday cards easy and convenient.
What: a Cardstore.com Holiday Twitter Party
Why: To share ideas about making the holidays less stressful and more memorable, and to win great prizes!
When: Wednesday, November 18th 4-5pm PST
Where: on Twitter (You will need to have a twitter account, it is extremely simple to sign up!)
