Mailroom Monday: February 14, 2011

Happy Valentines Day! Did you see all the photos of the cookies and cards from our Valentines challenge with Archway Cookies yesterday? What fun to know that not only did we get so many valentines - we were helping to get some sweets out to our heroes too!

Here are a few reminders - we've got so much going on at OWH, we want to be sure you don't miss out!

  • Bloghop signups started this weekend!
  • Did you get your receipt for 2010? Email if not!
  • Seminar participants, read this note!
  • Blog skip - check it out!
  • Facebook page: EWW! They upgraded us and made a mess of things! :( If you aren't a facebooker but used to peek, you might see a big 'nothing' now. Instead, you can keep up with what we post by looking at our twitter feed instead. (No account required.)
