Busy, Busy, Busy

It is true that I am mostly retired, that is, I do not have a full-time job or a job to which I must go. However, I do work for a publisher, and, lucky me, I get to work from home. The work is sporadic, though lately, there seems to always be something to do. Mostly, I oversee the development of materials and review them. Recently I received a new title, Director of Special Projects, which basically means I do a wide assortment of things. The company I work for is small—a husband and wife comprise the company—and I cannot express how much I love working with them. Unlike large publishers I’ve worked for, all the work for this company is done with a verbal handshake, and they truly value my opinions. We trust each other and it is a lovely arrangement, one that I hope continues for many years. Just the other day, the husband contacted me to see how much they owe me for my work in September. We both had to think through everything I’ve done for them in the past month. Being able to trust someone 100% as I trust this husband and wife is a great joy. I love the loose arrangement, and I much enjoy the work I do. So, why am I telling you this? Because this week I’ve been up to my ears reviewing a new book, reviewing a revised book, working on a presentation I will give on Saturday, and planning how to proceed with a new project, among other things. As a result, I have no time to stamp. So, I looked through my cards and found one I created last summer when I had lots of time on my hands. To make it, I used these supplies:

  • Stamp Set—Simply Said
  • DSP—Delicate Dots
  • Card Stock—So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Whisper White
  • Twill Ribbon—Certainly Celery and So Saffron (layered)
  • Ink—Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery
  • Nesties—Circle and Scallop

I'm sorry you've had no time to stamp but so happy you pulled out this card to share because I love it. I love all of the color and Simply Said is a set I've been eying.

Such lovely, summery colors, Mom! I hope you get some breathing room soon--I'm anxious to see more of your cards. :o)

Very pretty card! Love all those patterned papers too. Lovely card.
Oh, I wish I had your "part time" job! What a wonderful company this must be to work for. You're so very lucky.
