3) Let’s Gab About Grommets Contest:

Ann who said, “I’m crazy about the custom art and clothing at Rum Sum Sum (www.rumsumsum.com)! Anne stitches together lettering to make custom art with a child’s name and other graphics, and the results are unique, playful, and colorful. Not only do I love the art she creates, but I’m so impressed that she started her own business while raising her children. She is an inspiration. Take a look!” Ann, you win a $50 Gift Certificate to Daily Grommet, an M&M Treasures Belt, a Morrocanoil Sampler and Glass Ponytail Holders from 9 Manning Square.

By the way, 3 people submitted rumsumsum.com (no wonder it’s so awesome). So, we did the randomizer thing to select ONE winner (from the three submitters) for the totally awesome prize package, and that lucky winner is Ann.


Be a party muse!

Attention people. People who like throw parties. People who inspire others to throw parties. People who need a party thrown for them right here, right now, if not sooner.

We want you!

More specifically, Minted wants to give 3 of you an invitation…or rather, 150 invitations… perfectly designed just for you and your party. Plus! $200 credit at Minted. Minted is already a go-to spot for gorgeous wedding invitations and baby announcements and now they’re ready to launch a line of invitations for all sorts of occasions. Graduations. 30th birthday parties. Anniversaries… But they need a muse. Inspiration for their new line. So they’re coming to you.


Sounds awesome right?! We think so too!

Want to win?! We do too! But we can’t. So we want 3 of you or someone you love to. Win. A party.

Just nominate someone (it can be yourself too) who loves to party, lives to party, needs to party to be the “inspiration” for 3 new party invitation designs. Can you imagine how cool an invitation you would inspire?!!! You’d be a party muse!

Here’s how you do it! To nominate, instead of leaving a comment, you should send an email to contest@minted.com (nominating yourself or your favorite party girl) with the following information:
• First Name
• City and State where you/she lives
• Type of party to throw (i.e. birthday party, anniversary party, dinner party — not kids parties for this one)
• Month and year of party
• Location of party (type of venue)
• E-mail address where you can be reached
• A photo or family photo (for inspiration purposes for designers)
• Why you/she should be one of the 3 women chosen – be creative, anything goes!

Minted and kirtsy will get together to pick the 3 winners. Each winner will receive 150 cards of the design they inspired. Plus! $200 credit at Minted to spend on any stationery they’d like (everything is up for grabs except for wedding stuff). In addition, Minted is offering a discount to all kirtsy users… Just use the code “KIRTSY” to get 10% off everything except wedding invitations. Hm, awesome stuff to choose from there. Score! After all, we have some super parties going on around here this week and next.

For starters, our very own Gwen Bell is throwing a big ol’ party in Boulder this week. Since she’s getting married and all! Want to come?! Here’s your invitation to join us virtually.

And we’re gearing up for SXSW and our Girl/Guy party with Kirtsy & Alltop on March 15th in Austin at Allen’s Boots. Going to be at SXSW? Want to party with us? Come on! Email us at (party at kirtsy dot com) and we’ll give you the deets!  Hope to see you there!

In the meantime, nominate yourself and/or those you love to inspire the partying for all. And be your own party muse this week!


What can we say? It was a party. It was a big huge party with 300 of our best friends. We are enjoying all the photos — here and here and pretty much all over flickr. And between photo searches, we’re also having fun reading the 200+ pages of tweets.

The conference sold out. The attendees and speakers were world-class. The conversation was abundant and useful and provocative. The only hiccup we can remember is having to arm wrestle the Dallas Mavericks for available hotel rooms at the Four Seasons.

Thank you for coming. Thank you for supporting the sponsors that supported the conference. We can’t wait to do it again.

You may have noticed we’re ending February on a pink note. Because we always believe in people behaving pinkly, and because we’ve put up a new YouData “Pay Attention!” ad player…. This all means that this week, your attention can benefit a great cause: Pink Ribbons Project.


(Read more about Pink Ribbons here. It’s a smart organization to help breast cancer patients, started by two sisters and the NY arts community. Very cool!)

This new, giving-of-your-ad-proceeds, option just launched this week… and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Ask anyone who works for a non-profit, cause, church or school, it’s tough out there. And this is a great new way for non-profits and causes to stand up to the recession and raise a little extra awareness and change in the process.

Even if you only see a few ads and donate a few cents… every bit helps.

Plus this week, if you reach out to help those touched by cancer, you could win an iTouch! Oh yes you can!

Test out the new YouData ad player on kirtsy (Login. Or sign up. Simple.) And donate a few cents to Pink Ribbons Project. And then you’re entered to win a brand-new iPod Touch (aka iTouch — the funnest iPod ever).


iPod Touch!!


That’s right. Just play around on the “Pay Attention” ad solution, check out a few ads sometime before the end of February, and you can win. Maybe. Gah I hope you win. Because the iTouch is super cool. Plus you could totally help fund about 10 programs that help people with breast cancer. Awesome.


Want more info?

See a demo to get more deets on how to use the YouData PayAttention product, here.

You may have heard we had some trouble with the kirtsy site last week. We’re getting it all fixed up, slowly, but surely. But one of the casualties, for the time being, is our blog. Until it’s up and running again, we’ll be over here!

Thanks for visiting!
