Who's Your Mama?

Perhaps it's our obsession with The Complete Jane Austen being aired on PBS, but we've been hankering for pretty little calling cards. We're not visiting the girls of Mansfield Park or the Bennett household, but we do see how cards with our name, phone number, and email addy could make networking easier, and a bit more stylish. So, we were thrilled to hear about Mommy Cards —adorable business cards for the business of parenting. When you meet a family at the park, at pre-school, over spilled milk in the neighborhood cafe, and you realize that Little One would love a playdate with this new friend, just hand over a card.

Mommy Cards, created by Woodinville designer Anna Eisenberg, come in a variety of gorgeous designs that remind us of the retro-style wallpaper that's so chic right now. Just pick your favorite look online, enter your contact info, review a proof, and you'll be ready to start socializing when your cards arrive in about two weeks. We especially love that the cards are glossy on the front, but matte on the back to make it easy to pencil in details about your availability. You might even invite a new friend over for a dose of Jane while the kiddos do their thing.
