Our Save The Dates finally went out. I am actually pretty proud of them. I do not consider myself to be creatively inclined but I definitely gave myself a pat on the back after seeing the finished product. We decided to save money and make postcards as opposed to using outer envelopes or magnets. We made them pretty inexpensively, and I've received so many compliments. Here's how we made them: We are fortunate enough to have our talented photographer and friend, Lauren (Check out her website !

For baseball card collectors, 1992 looks as if it will be the year when Score's influence finally reaches cards at the lower end of the market.Score arrived in 1988 with improved card stock, thoughtful and imaginative photos and colorful and interesting card backs. Premium cards made their debut the next year, with Upper Deck taking Score a step further with better card stock, anti-counterfeiting holograms and stunning photos. Donruss brought out a premium line (Leaf) in 1990, and Fleer (Ultra)

With back-to-school season upon us, it's hard to beat a box of new, crisp colored pencils. Instead of shoving them into a backpack, put some of those supplies on display! This is an easy and colorful addition to a nursery, bedroom or playroom. Give creative license to your kids, and let them pick the mix of colors and pattern display. While you're at it, get creative with other school supplies - this project could easily be done with crayons, markers or highlighters as well. Materials: • 10” x 10” or 8” x 8” shadow box (Found at most craft stores or IKEA)

Buyer, beware.Now that spring training has begun, many baseball fans are adding to their collections -- buying new issues, checking their older cards, attending card shows.Watch out for counterfeit cards.Joe Bosley of The Old Ball Game in Reisterstown reports that he has seen three bogus Rickey Henderson rookie cards. A genuine Henderson rookie card (1980 Topps) sells for approximately $200; counterfeits will often be offered for less and appear to be a bargain to the unsuspecting.Bosley advises that on the counterfeits, the name on the front is a little blurred, as is the picture.

Years ago, one of my television heroes was Jim Rockford, the private eye played to world-weary perfection by James Garner.Rockford had a couple of things I admired. One was the best answering-machine message I've ever heard: "This is Jim Rockford. Leave your name and number, and I'll get back to you."In an answering-machine world of music, poetry, singing kids and phony marshmallow folksiness, Rockford's message was beautifully direct and to the point.That has nothing to do with computers, but I had to mention it. The other thing Rockford had was an amazing ability to switch identities, a feat he accomplished with a little printing press he kept in his car.If he wanted to be president of the Acme Widget Corp.

GO ON A SAFARI IN KENYA OR SOUTH Africa and you'll likely encounter rows of buses filled with tourists armed with shiny zoom lenses all aiming at the same sleeping lion. It's a different world in Zambia, and not only because its game reserves are unspoiled by mass tourism. This is the home of Africa's best walking safaris, and instead of driving for hours in search of the big five (cape buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and rhino), you explore the bush on foot. CITY WALKS: AMSTERDAM; CITY WALKS: BOSTON Chronicle Books / $14.95 each These are not books but boxed sets of 50 cards.

The greeting card industry, soothsayers of sentimentality, predicted it long before the first frost: Christmas will look a lot like the Fourth of July this year. Make room, red and green; the new palette for the Christmas card is red, white and blue. It seems natural that more holiday greeting cards would be draped in the flag -- Old Glory has stayed in season since September 2001. But so have messages of family, friendship and faith, which have also been translated into the art and verse available in this year's crop of holiday cards.
