Dana's favorite family Christmas Recipe

Ovenight Caramel French Toast

(awesome for Christmas morning, since you prepare it the night before!)


2 T. light corn syrup
1/2 c. butter
1 c. brown sugar

Simmer until syrupy. Pour over bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. Place 6 slices of bread on top.

6 eggs
1 1/2 c. milk
1 t. vanilla

Mix together. Pour half over the bread slices. Layer 6 more slices of bread over the first layer, and then pour remaining egg mixture over the top. Cover and refirgerate overnight. Bake at 350 uncovered for 45 minutes. Serves 6-8.



♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ Christmas Notes from Dana ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪

In this electronic age where email and IM dominate, a personal message on personalized stationery is a refreshing change and is sure to be noticed by both customers and family alike! I carry a wide selection of stationery products that are personalized for your business or social use. From thank you notes to invitations to business cards and sales aids (and everything in between), The Story of You lives up to its name and helps you tell your own story to those in your life!




Top Picks for the season:

In this season of list making, notepads are a necessity, and make great stocking stuffers, too! Thank you notes are always handy to have around--make sure you have an ample supply for December 25th activities. And I love sending personalized notecards with the name of my business on them, thanking my customers for their patronage after a large order!



Specials:

I recently read somewhere that in marketing dollars, retaining customers is much less expensive than the amount you spend to solicit new customers. Repeat business is the name of the game! One of the best ways to do this is to send Christmas Cards to all of your clients! My personal favorite is to find a Christmas card that features a calendar, for if your client hangs it up on their wall, you have successfully created a reminder about your business that will last throughout the entire new year! Now thru December 15th, I am running a 20% discount on products (including calendar Christmas cards!) purchased from my website, www.thestoryofyou.cceasy.com After ordering, send me an email at thestoryofyou@comcast.net and tell me where you heard about the special, and I will invoice you for the full 20% off.

Set of 10 full color, gold or silver foil embellished birthday cards, complete with foil-lined envelopes. Produced by Carlson Craft, the leader in social stationery and invitations, the retail value of this package is $20! Perfect to start your new year off!
