Thrilled that I had a use for my stamps other than for cards!
I work for a family agency and we just held a parent cafe.
I had spoken up I had little place cards that I had made with inspirational quotes on them from a previous job. Well, the quotes are saved on a flash drive, but were created from an old publisher program i can't download any more. They have cute clip art on them.
The day/night before the cafe was a very long one for me with all the responsibilities I had to get the cafe ready. At the end of the day I had given up on recreating these great table decorations and inspirations.
I was just about to go to bed and thought, "Wait, I have stamps with words like enjoy, you are amazing, live like you mean it, and also great old stamp sets from SU like the SAB set Happy Harmony.
This class had a cafe/coffee theme and I love coffee/tea themed stamps and have plenty. So the backs of the cards I stamped coffee cups, coffee beans, tea cups, coffee pots, etc.
BINGO! These turned out so darn cute. And I got the most wonderful compliment from my supervisor......that I was such a great addition to their team ( new job for me). Who would have thought stamps could get you compliments at your place of work.
I have gotten so much from stamping...new friends, great socializing time, creativity time, relaxation, etc. now it's helped with my job!
I was so thrilled to be using older sets that I love, but tend to sit on the shelf.
Even though it was late and I had to get up early, I got such happiness making these! I will use them again at a spa/self care workshop I'm doing as part of my job for parents in November.
Hooray for stamps and card making! May it live long and prosper.
All I want is the chance to prove money won't make me happy!
