You're In My Thoughts..........

I needed to make some tags for some Spring gifts I was putting in the mail yesterday and I thought I would share the results with you.  The stamp set I used, ENCIRCLED IN FRIENDSHIP (page 70 AC) is retiring soon.  The set is bundled with a wonderful set of circle dies ~ also retiring but you will want to keep them forever!

Tailor Made Tags Dies ~ not retiring

Packaging a problem?

BOXESDid you know that Stampin' Up! has lots of answers to packaging problems?  Page 137 in the Annual Catalog can answer many of the questions that you might have about gifting/wrapping.  Yes it is a little too late to order any of these boxes and bags but I seem to have collected quite a few over the years and I am happy to share.  Let me know if you need a special little box to make your gift purrrrfect.  I will let you know if I have what you need!  (And, I have ribbon & paper too!)

'convention'.  I think that I mentioned that one of our keynote speakers was Carey D. Lohrenz who is the Navy's first female F-14 FIGHTER PILOT!  So impressive!  

240845514_10226608700422640_3922942172387367500_n (2)One of the things that she talked about in her presentation was our obsession with 'perfect' and the time we take to strive for 'perfection' and that 80% IS ENOUGH!!!!  Perfection is not necessary!  I pass this on because I think if we remind ourselves of this on a daily basis our life will be easier, more fun and less stressful.  What do you think?
