I Recently Learned

Lessons learned in making an oversized birthday card:

1.  Think about how you will ship it.  Not only think about it, but check to see what size boxes and/or shipping envelopes are actually available in your area.

2.  Keep the dimensions "standard".  (see number 1).

3.  Don't procrastinate (nor keep adding on to the project so that it doesn't get completed in time to mail)

4.  Bite the bullet and ship it anyway.  (see number 1, 2, and 3)

Something Creative

If ever there was a phrase that reminds me of my mother, this is it.  To say she was creative is a bit of an understatement.  She was a talented musician, a gifted artist, and I like to think that I inherited some of her creative way of looking at the world and at life.

These wonderful stamps are from The Paper Source.  This is actually part of their trademark and what a delightful trademark it is.  So while The Paper Source owns the rights to the saying, my heart is completely on board with the idea of doing "something creative every day". 

The day is's not too late to do something creative today!

I've spent most of the day today, revising my personal blog.  While I am liking the changes, I do wish my mother could see it.....well.....maybe she can....
