Confession: I have a thing for all things paper. Every shape, size, color and purpose gives me goosebumps. I love great design and the possibility provided by the blank page within. So not a huge surprise that many of our BEbabes Impulse Prizes will be of the paperie variety.
This week’s Impulse Prize, provided by BEbabes, is a cute hot pink, black and green notecard set, pictured.
Let this also be a call to the old-fashioned: send real-live notes to friends. I use cute notecards instead of business envelopes to pay my vendors, send school photos to family, and thank you notes, though not often enough. Every Monday, I’ll offer up a BEbabe challenge, a call to action that stretches us to BE. BE a better friend. BE a more vocal supporter of reading and the book industry. This week our BE challenge is to mail a real-life notecard to someone. Pen to paper, stamp in the corner, the whole she-bang. Include a quote from your favorite author or favorite book. If you do the challenge, let me know in the comments section, and you’ll get one extra entry for our Impulse Prize this week.
For the ways to enter the Impulse Prize, see our Contest Closet, where you get rewarded for reading and being active in the BEbabes community.
We’re also excited to kick off this lovely week in October with a new BEbabes Chapter! Welcome our 14th chapter, The Midnight Book Club, with members in Virginia and Oklahoma. Atta-babe to queenB Kate Towery for starting up the chapter. She’ll be receiving a Trendy Momma tote and a book from our book closet and her members will now receive an extra entry for every contest at BEbabes. Give our new babes a follow on Twitter, too. See the full list on our Twitter Directory. Idea: start a column or Twitter list to get to know your fellow BEbabes sisters.
Have a great week! xoxo, Malena
