Tuesday Tip #6

I've had a case of blogger's block lately. It has been a week since I posted. Just couldn't come up with anything interesting enough to share. I decided to do a Tuesday Tip because I haven't done that in a really long time.

Today's Tuesday Tip is Call the Company. Do you have a product you really love and purchase often? Call the company and ask if they have coupons. They are usually more than happy to send them to you. You can also contact the company via email or their website. Have you purchased a product and been unhappy with it or have a suggestion to make it better? Go ahead and call. Example - recently I purchased a large box of Huggies baby wipes. You know - the box with two big "zipper" bags full of wipes. Well, both of the "zippers" broke. I had to put the wipes in large Ziploc bags to keep them from drying out. Not a huge deal, but an inconvenience. I called Huggies to let them know. They actually appreciate this because it helps them know where they need to improve.
A week later this is what arrived in the mail. Definitely worth the inconvience and the few minutes spent on the phone. So, don't be afraid to Call the Company!

Here is a card I made for my niece this week. I actually haven't sent it to her yet (although her birthday was last week). I'm a bit behind on my cards. I decided I could go ahead and show you. I don't think my niece will be reading my blog - she's only one!
I just embellished one of my vintage flashcards. Kept it pretty simple this time but I like the way it turned out.
Here is a closeup of the sweet cupcake. Yummy!

Guess that is all for now. I hope you have a fabulous week.

She will really love this! Doesn't seem like she should be one already.

darling card! I have called the company before and they didn't care. Can you believe that? Usually they do, but Pizza Hut does not.
thanks for entering my giveaway

Cute card! I love seeing vintage items reused like this.

Yes, I'm one that WILL CALL THE COMPANY! I agree with you, The Company usually wants to correct what went wrong. Usually. Not always, but it's worth a call!

Take care.
