Projects....

...sometimes get the best of me.  I mean, when I agree to do a project for someone I always agree to it with the very best intentions.  This means, I plan to......
             1. Agree to Do the Project
 2. Start the Project 
       3. Work on the Project
       4. Complete the Project
5. Make Deadline.

....usually I get off track around the "second" step or, the "Start the Project" step.  Of course, when I don't start the project it completely throws off steps 3,4 and most certainly 5!  So, I have a project today.  It is 1. Agreed; 2. Started; 3. Worked on; 4. COMPLETED (yeah, I'm in awe of myself too); and 5. Deadline=Met/Owned!  Who knew I could follow through so well?  My 18 year old is leaving for college {(tomorrow) wow-moment of sadness please :-( } and she requested notecards to be made for some of the kids she babysits.  She has babysat for two families all summer and one family has two of the sweetest girls that you have ever met.  So I got the "order" for notecards, made them AND completed two cases for them...IN TIME.  I know I am belaboring the point but you really need to know how totally unusual this is for me.  Perhaps in turning 49 last week I gained maturity.  Who knew that would happen right?  So, I did take pictures of the sets but since there were so many and there were dupes I will just post some....just please know that I did LOTS more and that is why this achievement is so momentous ;-D  So, without further ado but with lots of "stickle" deliciousness here they are....










                                                                   
                                                                    

Each girl will receive 8 cards as well as a magnet that we made with Clarice's senior picture and college address on it....as well as some other little "goodbye" goodies. I am not entirely sure of all the stamps that I used....but would say that most of them are Hero Arts and Penny Black....I think. Take care and thanks for stopping by!

Be well,
Sheila

What a fun set, Sheila! The girls will love them!

I know you're feeling nervous about your daughter leaving for college, with her diabetes and all, so sending you a hug! If you need an ear, just know that I'm only a FLickr message away. Hang in there, I know she's going to be just fine! Here's another hug. . . . .

I can't imagion how hard it is to have kids going off to college, it goes by too quick! Hugs to you! Your notecards are beautiful! Congrats on getting them done in time. I always procrastinate, and stress when I have deadlines, just how I am wired I guess.
