Friday Finds and Fine Pin

Congratulations! We've made it through the first full work week of 2012! For those who have this coming Monday off in honor of Martin Luther King Day, enjoy your long winter weekend.

With the holiday season behind us now, we've been thinking about all the great things that this new year will bring. What are you celebrating this year? Perhaps a wedding, a new baby, or a graduation? No matter if you're celebrating a milestone this year or not, there are always plenty of things to celebrate each month...

Did you know that this week is National Letter Writing Month? There are just a few days left, but that leaves you plenty of time to pull out your favorite stationery and craft a note to someone you care about. Need inspiration to get started? Hop back a few days on our blog to read a great post on writing a gracious thank you note.

Valentine's Day is right around the corner, giving us a lovely excuse to celebrate through February! This Valentine's Day Spa Party, spotted on Kara's Party Ideas, is an adorable idea for tweens and teens. How cute!

Maybe you're planning a move this year -- another great reason for celebration! If a new home is in your future, you'll want to check out this awesome post on Houzz that details some of the home decor trends for 2012.

With a year full of holidays and celebrations, we picked this DIY garland as our Fine Pin of the week. Why not create one in an array of colors to use at multiple celebrations throughout 2012?

Don't forget - the extra day off during this long weekend gives you some bonus time to shop FineStationery.com's January White Sale for special savings on personalized stationery, wedding essentials, baby essentials, party invitations and more!
