My friend Suzi posted on her blog yesterday about ways to re-purpose pallets in her garden. Well I found another cool way to use them too! Recycle them into loungers like these. I found them on recyclart.org They look like a great way to use up pallets and have a relaxing place to sit in your garden.
Gone are the days when people only advertise on paper through mailers, posters, and fliers. Now many companies rely on the internet to do a large portion of their marketing online. On almost every website I visit I see an advertisement for something. It’s difficult not to run into advertising in social media. Many companies even have their own Facebook pages and use Twitter. Don’t get me wrong, television, radio, and print are all still viable avenues to deliver successful advertising.
In order to get some good ideas about what I can do for a few things at work, I did some research online looking at an advertising agency. I was able to get some really terrific ideas. The company I examined provides internet marketing, social media marketing, and mixed media marketing. A mixture of all of these media outlets would be perfect for my company, and is exactly what we need.
I think it might be easier if we just hire one of the companies I researched for ideas rather than trying to recreate everything all on my own. The agency I took a good look at seems to provide a custom package tailored to whatever our company needs. Another thing they provide is analysis of the marketing strategies they implement to study their effectiveness. I know that having charts and graphs filled with data to explain if something is working the way I planned it to or not will really make me feel comfortable about schilling out my companies money on advertising.
It’s January 1, 2012. This year I want to be more organized and do more activities with Lady Bug. I want to get a few new toy bins to sort out all of Lady Bug’s toys. She has a billion toys and we really need to go through them and donate what she doesn’t play with regularly. I think I’ll let here keep what ever fits in the new toy sorter we get. Everything else can go to either Goodwill or a local shelter or orphanage. I’ve been trying to teach her about sharing and giving to those in need.
I also want to get a place to sort out all of the paper that comes into this house. It seems like no matter how much I clean off the counter or the kitchen table that there is always a pile of paperwork… bills, junk mail, letters, you name it it’s there in that stack. Some type of office filing system is just what I need. Maybe I can find something I like at Target.
I appreciate the guest post, Ignacio Phillips
There are only so many home security System options but when it comes to things like tile, the possibilities are endless. That’s what I like about renovating home, that so much of it is up to me and my own personal style who’s to say I don’t have good taste! I love being a stay at home mombut I really, really like that we’ve gotten into the property game and that so many homes in our area are actually selling right now. I know it seems counterintuitive but in our area there are some great opportunities to renovate and resell houses that’s why I love doing this. I feel like I’m contributing, I get to be more than just a mommy all the time AND I get to exercise my creativity this is actually the perfect job for me! It’s going to get harder when the houses get more expensive but for me at the end of the day, I know that there’s something to be said for this work.
Lady Bug asked for ice cream when I picked her up today. She was on her best behavior so I decided to treat her. We stopped off at our local frozen yogurt store and each got a tasty treat. I got tart vanilla with raspberries. Lady Bug enjoyed strawberry yogurt with chunks of fresh strawberries.
It not only tastes delicious but isn’t nearly as bad for you as some of the rich ice creams out there. We were both more than satisfied with our delectable selections.
