My Punchbowl makes me look good - Giveaway!

Indiana state welcome sign

After being approached by the folks at My Punchbowl to write a review of their party planning website, I knew that my trip back to the Hoosier state would now be smooth sailing. Now you may be asking yourself,"How does this chick connect party planning and traveling to Indiana (yes, the Hoosier state)?". Well, the last time we sojourned to family and friends I was pretty nonchalant about the whole visit. Let me tell you, that didn't go over so well. A couple blog posts later about how much fun we had and the pictures to prove it, created hurt feelings by those friends and family who hadn't. I was determined not to let that happen this time. And My Punchbowl was going to be my partner in perfect planning.

The Process

Signing up was a breeze and it's free(you know I like that)! I was like a kid in a candy shop because creating My Punchbowl invitations is like digital scrapbooking. I decided what needed to happen was to warn remind my peeps that the Clinton posse was heading into town. I needed a "Save the Date" card to virtually send everyone in Central Indiana who cared about our visit. So I named my "event" Indiana Bound and started the creative process. The thing I dreaded was transferring all those e-mail addresses. No problem! My Punchbowl is living in the 21st century and has a handy dandy way to import those puppies and organize them beautifully.

What fun I had! I got to pick from all sorts of "paper", fonts, colors, even virtual ribbons if I wanted. I ended up playing with the "Save the Date" form to create a schedule of where we would be when and contact information so no one could complain say they didn't know we were in town. Now, one of my computers is an old man, which made creating my card a very slow process. But once I moved to my computer that is a middle aged woman everything moved at a normal rate of speed and I was able to get it done before we actually left! Plus, I was able to fit in everything in the card that people needed to know to see us (if they wanted to) and avoid us (if they didn't want to). Here's what I came up with:

Party planning for my daughter's birthday in June is going to be a breeze thanks to My
