It’s Labor Day!

Monday, September 2nd, 2013

Labor Day is celebrated in the United States today. It always falls on the first Monday in September and it recognises the hard work of American men and women who have helped to build the country. It is over one hundred years old and many of the traditions have remained the same. Today, there are still parades across the nation and speeches are given by well-known industrialists and union leaders.

I hope you all had a nice weekend – and an interesting blog you might like

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

Hi all,

Well the weather didn’t turn out too bad and I managed a couple of walks with Plum without rain!

I hope you all had a nice weekend too and are ready for the week ahead.

As well as making e cards, I really enjoy sitting down with a cup of tea and having a good old search on the internet for new ideas, blogs and anything interesting to share with you and I try to do it whenever I can. This weekend I came across a lovely blog called Chocolate and Carrots which I think that you might like. Its written by a young woman called Caroline and she blogs about her life, interests, dog, her husband and cooking. My favourite posts of all are about her cooking!

She is obviously a very good home cook but what I love about her food is that she has a really good mix of really healthy and easy recipes like the ‘almond crusted fish tacos’ and her ‘whole wheat chicken dumplings’, then a selection of naughtier treats which she has made more healthy such as her ‘wickedly healthy carrot cake muffins’ and the ‘crispy baked sweet potatoe fries’. And finally, to satisfy all those greedy cravings, she adds an assortment of really indulgent recipes such as the ‘salted caramel chocolate cake’ and the ‘chocolate peanut butter mouse tartlettes’ (mouth watering pictures from Chocolate and Carrots follow):

As far as I can see, Caroline’s approach to food and cooking is a very healthy and balanced one. She is obviously a real foodie, but knows you can’t just stuff your face with indulgent treats and not suffer the consequences and so balances it out with healthy eating and cuts out unnecessary excess when she can – a method, I feel, more people should take heed of.

I found her blog interesting and will definitely be trying out some of her recipes so thought that some of you might like it too. Take a look and let me know if you have any comments or have found blogs or websites that you want to share.

Send your loved ones our new Labor Day e card

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

Hi all,

For those of you who don’t know, Labor Day this year takes place on the 5th of September and to celebrate this historic event we have created an inspirational Labor Day e card that encapsulates the spirit of the day with an animation of people working together using various building and joinery skills to build a huge ‘Happy Labor Day’ sign. As usual with all Katies Cards e cards, accompanying the animation is some uplifting music which has been specifically composed for the card.

Labor Day e card

Labor Day is an extremely historic day and the first time this day was observed was on September 5th 1882. It became a federal holiday in 1894 following a number of workers deaths during the Pullman strike. The first Labor Day celebrations were outlined in the first proposal of the holiday and were a street parade for workers and then a festival involving family and friends. Today people across the globe celebrate this holiday with barbeques and fairs involving their communities and the Labor Day e-card certainly reflects the ‘coming together of a community’. So in the spirit of Labor Day, why not use your Katies Cards personal membership account to pre-schedule a delivery of this commemorative card to all of your friends and family to show that you care?

You can easily pre-schedule cards in your membership account by selecting the card that you want to send, adding your own personal message and then setting the delivery date for the desired date you want the recipient to receive it. If you have any questions on how to use any part of your membership account please send us an email and Racheal will answer your query very quickly.
