Woeful Wednesday: Business Card Blight

Most 'Wordless Wednesdays' around here aren't that wordless. This one is no different. I love this picture. I just had to talk about it. Robin, the purdy lady in the photo, would totally know what I was talking about - since she's also the queen of all things wordy. We are two peas in a pod, me and the poetry-loving Pensieve.

The picture may not be the BEST shot ever, but there are a few favorite things in it that you need to notice: 1. Robin (she's great, y'all - even better in person - she just radiates southern charm), 2. the Biltmore tour (oh, my dear that was one of the most wonderful field trips we have EVER been on in our seven years of homeschooling), 3. BUSINESS CARDS (I mean, if you can't take the bloggers home with you from a blog conference, you should at LEAST get to take home their cards, right???).

Well... I had the cards. I even had a custom, handy, bright yellow, little bee zipper pouch to hold them in. All of my cards and the ones that were given to me at the conference by all the PR people, marketers, and amazing bloggers were in my tiny bee bag. It was like a pirate treasure - hidden away for me to sift through in greedy revelry as soon as I got home.

You can't imagine the grief I felt upon discovering that my little yellow zipper bag - my Queen Bee ditty bag with all those glorious cards - was MISSING.

Gone. Just like that.

So I have only 'misty water color memories' of the Type-A Mom conference now. And if you aren't over 30, you probably have absolutely no idea what that quote is in reference to.

Were you at Type-A Mom with me? Did you take home one of my business cards and happen to be reading my blog (stranger things have happened)? I would love for you to mail me a business card. You have my address already. And I love snail mail.

If you find my Queen Bee zipper purse, please return it to me. No one could throw something that cute in the trash. I just know it has to be out there. It's buzzing my name. Silently... from some trash heap in Asheville, or some maid's little girl's backpack...

I guess I have to go to Blissdom now. In February. Want to sponsor me?

Oh sweetie...I'm so sorry for your loss of your adorable bee pouch! I agree that SURELY someone must come forward with it--all the "buzzing your name" its doing will most likely eventually annoy its captor:)
And beeteedubs, you HAVE to come to Blissdom because you JUST HAVE TO:) I'll most likely have my entire family with me....

I would love to send you a business card--email me at tout_est_des_roses@yahoo.com with your address.

ALSO...I just wrote my first homeschooling post:) Care to take a gander?

Sorry to hear you are missing your bee pouch. :( Hope someone finds it and it miraculously reappears in your mailbox! :)

MommyLydia said...

I'll send you a business card if you'll send me one :)

But I wasn't at the conference so I don't know if that counts.

Email me an address. I'm excited to show off!

I am so sorry about your lost Bee Bag! I will be praying for its safe return to you. We also love the Biltmore! Last year we attended their homeschool festival, it was so much fun and hands down definitely, our best field trip last school year.

Love the Biltmore tour. The garden the best.

Funny story. I lost a little coin purse when I was 8yo in NY Catskills animal farm w grandparents. I cried over it and my $1.75. We left my name & address at desk. A girl mailed me my money a few weeks later and we bacame pen pals for 8 year. Neat huh.

Great photo of Robin.

What a rotten turn of events! I'm sorry that you lost your cards and your little purse. I'll check to see if I have your card at home and send you one. :)
