Looking for innovative ways for your company or institution to incorporate Ann Curry's challenge for each of us to commit to 26 acts of kindness to honor each child and heroic teacher lost in Newtown? Remember kindness starts at home or in this case, in the office! Start by implementing a Random Acts of Kindness or a 100/0 Principle Day modeled after Smith College’s Mountain Day where every year, the president chooses a beautiful fall day and announces a holiday day off to re-invigorate the soul by ringing the college bells. Even though you most likely won’t choose to give employees a day off, incorporate the concept of encouraging your employess to live life more compassionately by taking authentic responsibility for relationships into the day’s normal routine. The operative words should be kindness and respect and patience with zero tolerance for anything less. This is a good day to review your company's harassment policies and conduct company-wide harassment training.

I know it is only September but it is definitely not too early to start thinking about this year's holiday card!
And as always, we try to do the legwork for you by providing the definitive word on What's Hot & What's Not in stationery. One of this year's hottest trends in holiday greeting cards is what we like to call
We absolutely love this simple, clean look with a pop of holiday cheer! We are also loving that this year's cards have patterns on the back so if your recipients do choose to display them yours will stand out from the rest from the back, too!
Keep checking back for more holiday card ideas!
Both Print Games Now carry Holiday, Seasonal, and Event games; Baby Shower, Bridal Shower, Birthday, Over-the-Hill, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Spring, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Harvest, Christmas, New Year's and Winter games.
If we get one question more than any other, it is “do you have any ideas of games to play at my party and by the way, our guests are arriving in 45 minutes.” Our answer is always the same — yes, go online and order a theme pack of printable games. The biggest time suck is always the actual ordering and, of course, the printing of the games. Something always goes awry — generally I forget to fill in a required field and then have to start the ordering process all over again or my printer runs out of paper or worse yet, the printer jams because it knows I am in a rush. So if you plan in advance, you will not only have peace of mind that you have easily accessible party activities (you have access to the games 24/7), you also have plenty of time to print them out well before your guests arrive.
Have Fun and Party Hearty!
Action + Relationships = Results
