Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

St. Patrick’s Day is a day for everyone to drink Irish beer, to eat corned beef & cabbage, and to celebrate the great traditions of the Celts and Irish!

What are some flowers to decorate your Irish-themed event with? Roses are always romantic and popular – think of “My Wild Irish Rose”! Foxglove represents youth and innocence. The Bells of Ireland are lucky flowers, for starting new projects. Heather is not only very traditional in Ireland – but different colors have different meanings! Pink is for luck, purple is for admiration, and white is for safety.

Be sure to avoid lilacs and apple blossoms! Both are thought to be unlucky in Irish culture.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

It’s the day to let those who you love know it! Call up your family and friends. Let them know how much you care for them. If you’ve got a partner, snuggle up. If you don’t, hang out with friends or pamper yourself for the evening! I’ve finally finished watching all Native American movies Netflix had to offer. Now it’s time to finish revising my book on Native American romantic traditions!

Weddings & Courtships Launch Through Valentine’s Day

What do they say about the best laid plans of mice and writers? I began sending all of my launch day messages with our great promotion offers on January 23rd – and we overwhelmed our mail servers so badly that many people still haven’t gotten their offer yet! We definitely want people to be able to use the offer once they get the email; it would seem unfair for them to get the offer after it has expired already.

So, to make things fair for everyone, we’re going to extend our discount offers through Valentine’s Day. Our mail servers are chugging along slowly but surely through all of the mailing lists, and that should give them ample time to get the word out to everybody. I also got a lot of auto responses from people saying “I’m on vacation in Bermuda!” so this will help account for all of the escape-the-snow readers who are enjoying sunnier climes đŸ™‚

So remember, the list of our fantastic discounts for massage oils, romantic travel planning, gorgeous floral journals and much more can be found here –

As the Italian say –
Amor nuovo va e viene, amore vecchio si mantiene
New love comes and goes, while long term love is steady

Organization Tips

We had our deck nearly fall off the house last week, so we rented a dumpster for a week and are throwing the old wood pieces away. On one hand the place is a mess – but on the other hand, we’re doing a lot of cleanup that was much needed. If you’ve got clutter, I’ve got a lot of tips on cleaning and organization – “http://www.lisashea.com/lisabase/cleaning/organization.html”Organization Tips
