Yeah, I know. I've said that phrase before. It's my favorite saying! A while back I posted something about this saying… I got a stamp with this saying on it from the Unity Stamp company… and then found out Gandhi's name was misspelled. I did email the owner of Unity and she said she'd take care of it. Hasn't happened yet but I did find the stamp from another company: Great Impressions Stamps! WOHOO!
Oh, back to my favorite saying… there is something very empowering to me with those words. Everytime I think them or say them to myself, I feel a bit more empowered. What we did today, was purely selfless and truly the meaning helping others, I think. We changed the world. At least our small part of the world. I am honored to have worked with these ladies and I wanted to show them how I felt.
I made the ladies some magnets with this quote on it. This frame is made with a sizzix die I bought last Christmas and never used <roll eyes>. I bought it to make my mom some ornament frames with the boys pictures in it. Ok, so maybe this Christmas it'll happen!
I used the new Juliette Paper from A Muse and stamped the solid Damask under the quote! Easy!
I also gave them all some jelly beans. I have to tell you … here's a great tip… go to Sam's and buy the big thing of Jelly Beans (multi flavors!). I bought one of those and have used it for several gifts (coming soon to a blog near you…) and I still have 1/4 of the jar left! OMG! What a great deal!
So, I know you remember that I gave out these test tubes filled with candy to all the teachers back in October for Halloween and then I took some more to Seattle for the A Muse Creative Team back in November. Well, I still, um, yes, still have some left so I packaged up these jelly beans for these 7 ladies and I found a great poem to put on there…
Isn't that cute? And fitting? On the back side I just stamped "You Rock" and handwrote "it's been fun working with you".
It's been a great day! I'll have more of the gifts that we gave out over the next couple of days!
