Today's project was inspired by a friend of mine. She has 6 beautiful children ranging in ages from 14 down to 2 yrs old.. Yes! really. Anyway, I've been trying to reach her for two weeks, leaving messages at her home with one of her two oldest children (12 and 14 yrs old...old enough to take a message), sending her email messages, even leaving her messages on facebook. (If you had six kids would you have time to check your email or fb?)
When I finally ran into her at church last Sunday I explained that I had left a message with her son and she rolled her eyes at me. Apparently he's notorious for thinking he can remember to tell his mom that someone called but then forgets as soon as he hangs up with said caller.
She told me the problem isn't that there isn't something to write on. There's plenty of paper near the phone, but apparently there aren't any pens to be found I guess. .. ... or maybe it was the other way around. Oodles of pens and no paper. In any case, now that problem is solved.
Now she has a nice notepad and pen set all together and personalized just for her messages.
No excuses any more. Right?
My greatest fear...? Her daughter's first name also starts with S. I'm guessing this lovely new notebook will mysteriously go missing. lol
That's it for now. My crafty to-d0 list is growing. I need to create another wedding gift card and a little something for my dad for Father's Day. I hope you're all enjoying your summer so far. Toodles for now....
