Monday suck-day, take 7!

Monday, September 29, 2008

My Monday was off to a suck-day start bright and early this morning, 5:30 to be exact, when I was rudely awoken by a very involved nightmare. I've been having these more and more lately (I blame my hormones for the intensity), but this one was much worse than any of the prior ones, and required Christopher to come upstairs and take time away from getting ready for work to sooth me back to sleep like a crying baby. Other than that, my throat burning heartburn has seemingly taken a break, and I managed to package up every single note-card-containing envelope for my stationery swap! So while Monday sucks, it could be worse.

That doesn't mean we're not having a giveaway though!! Today's suck-day giveaway is being sponsored by etsy user plumstars. Shes made y'all those fantastic autumn themed greetings. And as if I haven't been constantly reminding you, we all need to do a better job of keeping in touch with our pen pals, friends, and family. So this is perfect, right? This year I plan on sending out everyone Halloween cards, Baby shower invites, Thanksgiving cards, and Christmas cards. Sounds like a lot, I know. Well those will closely be followed up with baby announcements, and thank you's for both Christmas and baby related gifts. These would do me a great deal of help in all of that, haha. So if I were you, I'd jump on this folks! Want to know how to win?

The rules:
-Go visit plumstars etsy shop.
-Find your absolute most favorite item(s), don't be shy, heart them if you must.
-Come back here, and leave us a comment telling us which items were your favorite, and don't forget, at least one reason why Monday suck.
-If you're not a blogger, make sure to leave us your name and email, or some way to contact you in case you win.
-Contest ends Thursday morning, 11-ish.
-Let the suck-day festivities begin!!

So while you're all scrambling to win plumstars loot, I'm going to go seek out some other Monday morning giveaways, nibble on my husbands amazing pumpkin maple bars (He blogs on here every Saturday now. If you haven't read, you should!), sip my chocolate mint tea, and finish putting together my to do list.

I love you suck day'ers.

(If you would like to sponsor a Halloween suck-day giveaway, please email me, or send me a convo at my etsy shop. Thanks!)

pick me!
I love this 12-pack (I like to buy multiples so I don't feel like not writing to someone in order to keep the pretty card to myself)

Happy Monday!

The Hawaiian mini notecards are adorable.

You can never have too much stationery/cards/paper!!

I love the mini 12 packs. This one in particular:

I love that I can keep my notes short and sweet! :)

Why Monday's suck? One word: WORK!
And because I already got a call from my manager saying that I messed up on something last week and he was upset that he had to resolve the issue. Oh well, that's your job as manager, buddy. Right?

I love the mini note cards with the birds on them. So adorable!

My monday sucks 'cause I have to work and it's probably the last nice day we'll have in Portland until May! Let the rain begin!

I like this set of mini notecards:

My Monday sucks, because tomorrow's the last day of the month, and is always super-busy! Yuck!!

I love this one:

Mondays suck because I have to live with the guilt of Sudnay's bakery brunch!

BTW, I remember those pregnancy hormones well, and had my share of nightmares. Ugh!

Nicole's Ramblings September 29, 2008 at 10:27 AM

kim* September 29, 2008 at 2:33 PM dots mini journal is cute for achild to doodle in.

mondays suck because people are more grouchy than other days...

8 Mini Notecards - Flowery Red, Purple, Pink - are my favorites. All Mondays suck but this past Monday sucked even more because I had this huge project due that I worked ALL weekend on and then topped that suckiness off with a 14-hour day on Monday. So there!

Great shop and great giveaway!

i like the black cat a lot!
Mondays suck clearly because its the day when you realize you have to start your week again, and work your ass off for nothing

I love the Magic Fairy Chocolate Journal (and the little matchbook journals too).

I go through so many journals, its insane! That little fairy journal would fit perfectly in my wallet! Wonderful idea!

You know, Mondays suck for me because that's when all the weekend fun ends (well sometimes!).

Love you blog,
