Celebrate Father's Day With a Card From Tiny Prints


Tiny Prints offers a large selection of Father's Day Cards to choose from.  There are many layouts and designs to personalize along with a variety of unique greeting cards.  In addition, Tiny Prints provides modern invitations and announcements for different occasions, stationary, photo books and gifts, and business cards and products. 


Father's Day is coming up and this year will be Hubby's first Father's Day!  Raised by a single mother, I've never really celebrated Father's Day growing up.  Now, I can look forward to every Father's Day with a day of celebration in honor of Hubby, being the world's greatest dad to Baby Hsu.  Speaking on behalf of Baby Hsu, Baby Hsu would think Daddy is a hero because Daddy persevered during the first few nerve-wrecking and sleepless days in the hospital when Baby Hsu was born.  Being a first time dad who had never really taken care of any babies before, Daddy took care of Baby Hsu while Mommy was glued to the bed (just a painful recovery and afraid to move).  Not only was he there to attend to Baby Hsu's needs, but he also made sure Mommy was okay and well.  Most importantly, Daddy is a man who has a passion for the Word and the Truth.

Now, it's time to tell your dad how much you love him with a personalized Father's Day Card from Tiny Prints.  You may personalize your card with a special photo or you may choose a greeting card from Tiny Print's creative selection.

Exederm - Ultra Sensitive Skincare (Eczema and Dermatitis-Proned Skin) Review


Exederm offers ultra sensitive skincare products for adults, children, and babies who suffer from eczema, dermatitis, and sensitive skin.  Their philosophy is to avoid irritants that trigger eczema - always use the mildest ingredients possible.  Exederm baby and children's skincare line has been honored with a 'Seal of Acceptance' from the National Eczema Association.  All of their products have been specially formulated to avoid harsh chemicals, unnecessary additives and unproven herbal ingredients that may irritate sensitive skin.
~ No Fragrance
~ No Parabens
~ No Lanolin
~ No Propylene Glycol
~ No Color or Dyes
~ No Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS)
~ No Cocamidopropyl Betaine (CAPB)
~ No Phthalates


Exederm works magic!  After trying almost all the products on the market for sensitive and eczema-proned skin, I was skeptical at first to try this brand.  But, I'm really glad I did because it works like a charm!  I was impressed by how quick and effective it works.  I couldn't have received the products at a better time when his eczema flare up was at its worst.  I immediately bathed Baby Hsu with the Baby Eczema Wash and cleansed his hair with the Baby Eczema Shampoo.  After his bath, I noticed his scalp was less flaky and dry.  While his skin was still moist and damp, I applied the Flare Control Cream (with 1% Hydrocortisone) to the dry patches of rash.  Then, I lathered his arms and legs with the Baby Eczema Cream (intensive baby moisturizer).  After using Exederm for a day, I saw results that work!  I try to be as diligent as I can in keeping Baby Hsu's skin hydrated.  I'll bathe Baby Hsu every other day, using the Baby Eczema Wash and Baby Eczema Shampoo.  On a daily basis, I'll apply the Flare Control Cream once in the morning and once before his bedtime until his eczema is under control.  Remember, Hydrocortisone is not to be used on a daily basis - only for treatment.  Then, I'll apply the Baby Eczema Cream at least three times a day - mostly before his naps.  Once his eczema is under control, I'll use the Baby Eczema Lotion instead.  The cream and lotion feels light on the skin once you massage it to penetrate through the skin - no mess and stickiness.  I regret not asking for a sample of the Baby Eczema Oil to try.  After using Exederm for two weeks, I can say his skin looks and feels soft and smooth, the way a baby's skin should be.  I can't remember when Baby Hsu's skin from head to toe was ever silky smooth.  Wow, it's so nice to finally hug him and touch his smooth skin.  I am exhilarated that I finally found a product that gets the job done!

Graduation Announcements and Invitations From Tiny Prints




My graduation from the University of Southern California was a momentous event for me.  I was able to share the excitement with my family and friends.  Not only did I make my family proud, but I was also proud of myself for accomplishing one of my goals in life.  During my high school years, I was a rebellious teenager who thought the whole world revolved around my navel.  Unfortunately, I didn't do so well academically.  I very much appreciate all the people who has helped me along the way to straighten my path.  The graduation was held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles and I was very thankful that it was indoors.  Once I walked off the stage with my diploma in my hands, I knew I was ready for the real world.  My graduation marked the beginning of many opportunitites that followed.  Congratulations class of 2011! 

Share your exciting news and accomplishment with a personalized graduation announcement and invite loved ones to cheer you on with a personalized graduation invitation from Tiny Prints!
