Stampin’ Up! Millions of Thank You’s

My favorite saying is “A Million Thank You’s Are Never Enough!”  There has been countless people in my life that have gone out of their way to do things for me.  From the simplest things to bigger than anyone can imagine.  For each and every one of them… I am thankful!

In my entire working life I have had TWO bosses that have taught me important lessons in life.  During this deployment I found the THIRD one.  We call him ‘The Godfather’.  I’m not sure how he acquired that nickname, but it fits.

He’s protective of his staff, leads with conviction, and is living proof that laughter is the best medicine!  He plays devils advocate just to get you to think about a choice you’re about to make.  You know he’s around the moment you hear his laughter… and boy is it contagious.

He’ll be leaving us shortly for another assignment and I sure am going to miss him.  To him I say, “A million ‘thank you’s” are never enough for your leadership and best of all your friendship!

Have you ever had an unforgettable boss?  Do you consider yourself an awesome boss?

Lately, I haven’t been able to make a card without my Butterfly paper punches.  Here I used the Bitty Butterfly and it’s so petite and cute.  Quick tip… when I layer designer series paper with solid card stock, I don’t let the unseen card stock go to waste… I use it to punch out butterflies, tiny flowers, or anything else.  It’s a great way to maximize the use of your paper.

The Secret of Life Is…

I began my journey on Wednesday and arrived to my deployed location on Saturday.  Whew! what a journey, so far!  Many do not like spending time away from their families and neither do I.  But… being that I am in the 1% club, it is a sacrifice I do not regret.  This stamp is a perfect statement of how I feel.

I’ll be gone for 6 months from family and friends, but I have already made friends where I am.  I met a wonderful young lady at the terminal when I landed to await further transportation, her name is Dee. (real name changed to protect the innocent… lol).  Dee is a female pilot and is headed on her umpteenth tour of duty.  She absolutely loves her job and it shows in the way she talks about it.

I have only met three female pilots and I must say, she is the one who has stood out the most.  Why?  Because she was so down to earth, kind, friendly, and a great conversationalist to my ADHD lifestyle.  But honestly, what blew me away about her was that she knew what a Cricut was.  You’re laughing right?  No, not the insect that chirps you crazy, but the die-cutting machine.

When your fabric projects and handmade gifts are finished with details that are perfectly color coordinated, everyone who sees or receives them will definitely notice.  The soft and flowing 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon drapes like silk and will add a distinguished and delicate look to your creations.

Reminiscent of Victorian apothecary labels, this exquisitely designed From My Heart eight-piece stamp set is a must-have for those who covet that vintage look.  Clever sentiments and intricate designs combine to make this a stamp set you’ll want to use again and again.

A personal shout out goes to my three new blog subscribers that signed up to follow My Paper Journey while I was flying a few thousand miles to get to my temporary home.
