No, not the FREE that we, as Americans, usually take for granted - although that is an amazing thing, when you think about it.

No, the FREE I'm talking about is when a local retailer GIVES STUFF AWAY ... and right now, I personally know of two (2), yes, TWO retailers with a giving heart.

One: PAPER SOURCE - spend $40 {or more} and get a freebie - I was in last weekend and the freebie is your choice from some cute little packs of Paper Source cards -- nice ones, too, worth $8 - $9 per pack. So get in there! And by the way, Paper Source has online HOW TO video clips that are a real laugh - the founder of PS is a riot! Very relaxed, sort of the anti-Martha, if you know what I mean :-) ...

Two: LULULEMON, the athletic wear company. is offering FREE yoga and pilates classes at LULULEMON in THE FORUM shopping center {which, by the way is where Paper Source is also located} here in Carlsbad, CA.
Sat., Nov. 21 and Tues., Nov. 25 / In-store
Ambassador Stacy McCarthy from Sculpt Fusion and PAC will be teaching our Sat. yoga class from 8:30 - 9:30 a.m. in the store. Colleen from Pillar Performance will burn our buns in a free mat Pilates class on Tuesday from 9 - 10 a.m. Come 10 - 15 minutes early to set up and harness your energy. Join us after for a light breakfast and a perusal of our new products in the store.

Now come on, isn't FREE a beautiful thing?

I have Christmas cards to get cracking on, and since Ingrid - my most gifted acupuncturist / massage therapist - really took good care of my back this afternoon, I can hardly wait to sit & create for hours on end this weekend ... with some nice stretching breaks thrown in!
