I Know This Project is Your Baby….

Yesterday, thanks to Anita @ Quality Enterprises, we shipped the remainder of our un-stuffed Mom Squad Coupon Packs off to be completed.

It was hard. Did I mention I am a control freak?

Ask anyone. They will confirm it.

We are used to plowing through this part of the project ourselves. Even if it takes handfuls of peeps and weeks to complete.

BUT, I am comforted by the fact I know they are in good hands. I know Anita understands the process and her crew is dedicated to quality like we are.

Much ado about a bunch of silly coups and envelopes?


Right before she drove away, Anita smiled and patted my arm. “It’ll be OK“, she said. “I know this project is your baby.”


I can hardly wait for my “baby” to get back. Passing out these hot pink and bright yellow envelopes-full-o-deals is one of my fav activities.

Oh yeah! On a brighter note, you WILL be seeing these bright envelopes everywhere! Opportunities to distribute these are popping up like popcorn! Along with our Discover Rack locations, usual spots, through participants and businesses, you will find these at the MOMS Garage Sale at Lord of Life Church May 15th, and during the Downtown Brainerd Women’s Walkabout event may 6th. Booyah!

That’s all for now. Stay tuned for more updates. And it would make us deliriously happy if you were to subscribe to our shiny little blog (it’s the funky square on the left). Keep smilin, keep your dollars local, and dance like no one’s watchin.

TommieMedia – Students team up with Special Olympics for movement

As many of you know, I (Becky-head marketing and advertising spaz for Mom Squad) wear many hats. The main one is “the office products chick” at The Office Shop of Downtown Brainerd and Downtown Aitkin. Scott and Jodie Johnson have been my beloved employers for over 12 years now (poor buggers. They both need an award for putting up with me that long). As a business owners, they rock. As a family they have endured many hardships and challenges, but have been rewarded with two pretty phenomenal kids, Zach and Kari Jo. The following is an except from an interview done with college student Kari Jo and the subject and getting rid of the “r-word”. Please take a moment to read this. It’s important.

“Senior Kari Jo Johnson said when she hears the word “retarded,” “It kills me … It’s like the absolute sharpest knife that punches you in the gut and makes you lose your breath.” Johnson’s younger brother, Zach, is 18 and has Down syndrome..” click here to read more
