Paperless Post- My New Favorite Site

So, Sam and I decided to have a party! (Well kind of... as party-party as we can respectfully get during Lent.) It's more of a family/friends gathering for a rosary and lunch in honor of our new pope. I'm so excited to get everyone together to celebrate the new earthly shepherd of our church and pray for his intentions and his new papacy.

In so planning for our gathering, I spent quite a bit of time trying to put together the just-right (free) e-invitation.

Well. Let. Me. Tell. You.

Paperless Post

Seriously, I am super impressed and I love almost love it! And did I mention? IT'S FREE! (There are some services you can choose to pay for, but you can do so much for free :)

Anyway, I found it to be really neat, because every step of the way, I could edit the card I made to totally personalize it, changing the fonts (btw, they have beautiful font choices), spacing, etc. I was able to import all of my contacts from my email, add personalized messages to individual recipients and even track the status of who's opened the email.

Here's what the front our invitation looks like:

I can't say enough wonderful things about this site.

A Catholic New Year!

I know, I know, it's been so long since my last post, but this post is definitly post-worthy...

We have a new Pope!!!

Ahhhh! I'm so, so super excited! I'm watching the white smoke live on EWTN's website, and I can't help but feeling this sense of joy as if it's New Years.

I'm so grateful that God has granted the Church yet another shepard to guide us on earth. Praise be God!

Anyway, I'll update again soon, but just wanted to share the awesome news!!
