I have to tell you that I LOVE packaging, all kinds of packaging! I love to dress it up and make it as wonderful as the item inside (which is most often candy- LOL!!) I love giving little dressed up packages as thank yous to everyone which is why I bout died when I saw what was on sale this week with Stampin’ Up!s WEEKLY DEALS!
I think the one item that I don’t use enough of are the SWEET TREAT EMBELLISHMENT CUPS, I went through a phase when they first came out, and I used them on everything! The one project that we made with them, which was a HUGE hit were these “Drunk Bunnies” This was for an Easter class I did YEARS ago, but this guy always makes me laugh when I look at him. Check out my post for this guy HERE.
That class was fun, I remember it like it was yesterday, LOL!! I have used the WEEKLY DEAL products on a TON of different projects over the years, do a search on my site and you can check them all out!
Be sure to CHECK OUT THE WEEKLY DEALS on my STAMPIN’ UP! ONLINE STORE too and get in on the goodies before they are gone, and earn some SALE-A-BRATION goodies at the same time!
What in the world is “waiving the white flag about?”
I have to admit that I have hit a wall… not creatively, that’s not an issue. I have hit my MAX CAPACITY for accomplishing my “to-do’s”… if you receive my monthly Style Sheet publication then you may know what I am referring to. It really was just the straw that broke this camels back. I have SO much I am behind on right now, which is causing me to split into many different directions that I am dropping several of the many balls I am juggling…
I had to send out 2 different publications yesterday, cause they weren’t right – and I hate doing that. I hate filling your inbox with my mistakes. I get to making mistakes and missing deadlines when things pile up way too high. I have successfully confused most if not al of my Hostess Club Members, I have yet to finish updating my Rewards Card for customers, I have packages to mail, I have samples still to complete, classes to edit-upload-and post, I have dog poop to clean (he ate something outside and I spent ALL night cleaning him up… good times)…
Then I am up at it again at 5 AM to get a few hours of work in before the morning or kid wrangling begins…
Please don’t think I am complaining – cause I am most definitely not. I LOVE my life, and I LOVE my job! What I don’t love is falling short of MY expectations, and that’s exactly how I feel this week, and most of last week, and a few days of the week before that. LOL!!
With all the weather issues my packages have been delayed which is like a domino effect, and I don’t like dominoes… So why in the world am I sharing this with you? Well, for one… I think on some level I need you to know that I truly am sorry for any mistakes, mishaps, miscommunications, misinformation, or any other screw up I have accomplished over the last few weeks- I am only human (yes, I am signing that… cause it’s freaking early!). I also tell you this so you understand why I won’t be posting the rest of this week… I need to give up something to be able to work through the entire TO-DO list I have breathing down my neck each day… and much like my kids it seems to continue to grow by the minuet!
Please know that if you have emailed me in the last week or so, or texted me, or called me, and haven’t gotten a response it’s not because I think you are ugly… I have over 380 emails to go through, much is junk but it takes a while to filter. SO please resend it if you don’t get my response by Friday And if you don’t hear from me by Sat. send in the National Guard… cause I might be dead. LOL!!
Thanks for letting me be “reel” with you toady, and thank you for those that sent me kind words yesterday after my publication debacle, I appreciate your kindness. So until we see each other again (like Sat-ish…) have a great week and just know I have some AWESOME things to share this weekend, so you will want to check back!!
