Have You Seen The Gift Everyone Is Talking About!?


Wow! It looks like is going to have to make room in the Customer Favorites Store for the gift that everyone seems to be talking about!

stamp 300x300 Have You Seen The Gift Everyone Is Talking About!?Our Mr. & Mrs. Self-Inking Address Stamper has been making the rounds on Pinterest - so much so that it was featured on Pinterest’s Popular Page and has made appearances on the main Wedding & Events Page numerous times!

People have been “pinning” it like crazy onto boards with names like ”Wedding Gift Ideas” “Products I Love” and “I WANT!” with brides leaving comments saying the stamp was their “favorite wedding gift,” a ”time saver and life saver!” or their “secret weapon!” With all the buzz our personalized gift has created, we wanted to make sure we shared what everyone is talking about with our A Personal Touch readers!

There seem to be 4 main reasons why people are falling in love with our stamp:

1. The “cute” design! We’ve never seen the word “CUTE!” written so much! Brides love the hearts and the ”Mr. & Mrs.” theme and since it’s a PMall exclusive design, they know they’re getting a one-of-a-kind gift they won’t find anywhere else!

2. It’s “very affordable!” The stamp is only $24.95 (or hurry over to PMall now because as of this posting, the stamp is on sale for just $21.20!) so you can save a bundle buying the one stamp instead of paying big bucks for a large amount of return address labels, especially because …

3. It’s self-inking! You don’t have to spend extra money on a separate ink pad plus you get to pick out which color you want the stamp to be (you have the option to choose 1 of the 5 available colors: black, blue, red, purple and green)! And last but not least …

4. It “saves soooo much time!” Instead of spending a ton of time writing each return address label by hand, peeling off stickers or licking gross-tasting labels, all you’ll have to do is press down once and you’ll have a professional-looking stamp that adds a personal touch to your invitations or Thank You notes!

See for yourself what everyone is talking about by reading the comments people are writing on just one of several “pins” that we’ve seen all over Pinterest!

It’s Here! Refreshment Recipes For Relief!


Thanks to one of the bizarre calendar Websites I love, I discovered that today is “Work Like A Dog Day.” Today is supposed to be a day to show appreciation for and honor those who carry more than their expected work load but I think if you’re the one who usually works like a dog then you should celebrate yourself, too!

I can’t think of a better way to thank the work-aholics in your life than by ending “Work Like A Dog Day” with a nice refreshing drink. There’s nothing like a cold beverage to help you wind down after a long day of work – especially during these hot summer days!

Refreshment%20Blog 3 Its Here! Refreshment Recipes For Relief!Which is why we want to help all you hard workers out there celebrate “Work Like A Dog Day” with our very own “Refreshment Recipes for Relief” contest!

Don’t worry, you don’t have to work hard to win – all you have to do is submit your favorite summer drink recipe (alcoholic and nonalcoholic are both welcomed!) by posting it in a comment below so everyone can share their favorite recipes right here!

The winner, who will be chosen at random, will win their very own Personalization MallUnbreakable Acrylic Pitcher personalized with their initial so they can make an impressive statement the next time they serve their favorite signature summer drink!

Since you’re working like a dog today and may need help to get your creative juices flowing, I’ll start pimms 5 Its Here! Refreshment Recipes For Relief!with my favorite summer drink recipe. Here’s how you make your very own “Fruity Furlough:”

Mix 1 part Pimm’s No. 1 (Pimm’s is a gin-based liquor I came across while on a trip to England and while they may not carry it at all general grocery stores in the U.S.,Binny’s Beverage Depot and some other liquor stores do sell it) with 1 part Sprite (Ginger Ale can also be used) and 1 part lemonade. Then slice up 1 whole orange, 1 lime and 1 lemon into little pieces, squeeze the juice into the mixture then drop the slices into the mix to soak.

If you have the time you can chill the drink overnight and let the fruit soak for more flavor, or if you’re expecting your hard working company soon you can serve it right away with a large glass of ice. Either way it’s really yummy! For a nonalcoholic version for you or the kids, you can substitute the Pimm’s with another flavorful juice that will be highlighted by the Sprite and Lemonade. I suggest something out of the ordinary, like pomegranate or pineapple juice. If you can’t find a store that sells Pimm’s you can substitute it with a tasty flavored vodka or amaretto.

The floating fruit makes it look like a beautiful summer sangria! The “Fruity Furlough” is a great recipe to use as the signature drink for your next party. Feel free to change the name of the drink to give your party that personal touch that makes your party stand out from all the rest. For example, your loved one will beveragestand 3 Its Here! Refreshment Recipes For Relief!be really touched when they see you named the drink after them because it’s their bridal shower or birthday. “Erin’s Elixir” or “Paul’s Potion” are just two examples of how you can personalize it.

Cupcake Craze!


The cupcake is an old-fashioned treat that generations of us have enjoyed.  But now, the traditional, home-baked dessert is more popular than ever, and it’s not just for kids anymore!

Move Over Sheet Cakes!

Like many of you, I’ve spent lots of money on bakery sheet cakes for special occasions, and most of the cake goes to waste. Well no more!

One of the latest dessert trends is the “Pull-Apart” Cupcake Cake. It’s basically a cake which uses cupcakes as the base and is frosted as one cake. Since the cake is made out of cupcakes, they are made to “pull apart.”  When it’s time to serve the cupcakes, you simply start pulling the cake apart, handing out individual cupcakes to your guests. It’s easy and convenient, with no need for plates or forks. Cupcake cakes are also great for making a character or image cake. For example, you could place cupcakes in the shape of a football and then ice it.

A Personal Touch!

Add a sweet twist to your batch of cupcakes with our personalized Cupcake Wrappers.  Each is printed with fun party designs and finished with delightful, scalloped edging. We personalize the wrappers with any personalization to add the perfect finishing touch to your cupcake creations. We even have a design that features your favorite photo!  These adorable wrap-arounds decorate your cupcakes after they’ve cooled from the oven (or after you’ve removed them from the bakery box – we won’t tell!).  Just slide the ends together easily with the tab – then drop the cupcake right in, and decorating is done!

The Center of Attention!

After you’ve decorated your pretty little confections, make them the center of attention on a gorgeous display. Tiered cupcake stands are a fun way to serve your party cupcakes. It also makes a great centerpiece on the buffet table – one that’s sure to wow your guests!  It doesn’t matter what your party theme is – traditional, modern, or artsy – there is a perfect stand for your cupcake creations.  The more adventurous party hostess might even make her own display.  For an elegant touch, try stacking wine glasses, topped with a silver tray.

Happy Decorating!  Save a cupcake for me!
