Holiday Greetings “On the Interwebs”

Holiday Greetings “On the Interwebs” By Ashley Schultz The Holiday’s are always a busy time of the year! You have presents to buy, cookies to bake, parties to attend, and finally you have to send out those time consuming cards! You have to do this all while still living your regular day-to-day life! Now with the help of the Internet, you can create and send out cards to your contact list in just a few clicks! Yes, there are tons of E-Card sites, and it is hard to pick out the best but I am here to help. The following are some of my favorite, top-quality electronic card services that are a mix of free and premium, animated and static, interactive, and traditional digital greetings!   American Greetings: American Greetings has the largest selection of Holiday E-Cards, many which have animation and customization options including the ability to upload your own photos and put yourself into the scenery. They also have talking cards, which allow you to record your greeting in your own voice and have an animated character appear to be saying it. American Greetings does require a paid membership for most of its services.   JibJab: JibJab is definitely an E-card site that is for a humorous and personal type of E-Card. The cards are described as “Music Videos Starring You!” They specialize in humor, and many of their cards tell elaborate stories!   Jacquie Lawson: Jacquie Lawson is an illustrator who has built a large collection of animated Flash greeting cards with music. These are elegant cards and are very high quality. There is a yearly membership fee, yet is worth it if you want to send classy messages to your friends.   Sloppy Kiss Cards: Now for all the animal lovers out there,…

Fishing for Holiday Gifts?

Fishing for Holiday Gifts? Here is my annual gift guide! Shopping for anglers is frustrating; but for the person on the receiving end, there’s a guaranteed stint in the return line! Choose gifts for on and off the water!   With New Year resolutions just around the corner, the Hoka One One Clifton 4 is the latest addition to the award-winning Clifton line, meeting the toughest goals. Day or night (3M reflective material) Clifton 4 is light and cushy. HOKAs are known for cushioning and an upgraded foam package ensures consistent cushioning through the life of the shoe. If looks could run, the Clifton would set records. Cool designs for road or casual Friday. Breathable mesh upper wicks away moisture and odor. Styles for men and women.   Slipping into something more comfortable, sport sandal maker TEVA created Ember Moc. Part sneaker, part sleeping bag, Ember Moc is a shoe in for traveling feet at the airport, feet slipping around the house, stepping out to get the paper, or even at the campground. The easy-on shoe features a collapsible back that allows feet to slide in while the heel rebounds for slipper like comfort in an outdoor leisure shoe. The polyurethane sockline/footbed delivers comfort, recovery and rebound.   Socks matter. Smartwool knows feet are gender specific. Women’s feet generally have a narrower profile. Smartwool Women’s PhD Outdoor Medium Crew socks use two elastics allowing for greater stretch and recovery to keep socks in place. Moisture is managed with mesh ventilation zones for breathability. Medium cushioning absorbs impact with Smartwool’s Indestructawool technology for durability in high wear areas with the comfort of the Virtually Seamless toe.   Smartphones ring and gloves come off. Not anymore! NEW Tap-KnitTM Technology from HANZ Extremity Wear, known for waterproof socks and gloves,…
