Daily Grind - Cleaning the Dirt



What sort of value can you put on the day after day task of cleaning up after a bunch of thankless folks?

The cleaning staff of our building are generally overlooked. Until recently, I believe they passed in and out of the bathrooms and kitchen areas without much notice.

However, there is this one young woman who is very friendly. Always says hello, etc. She is friendly, polite, and doesn't let herself vanish into our rather politely silent atmosphere.

And it's relentless. She's got the "dirtiest" job I know. And I doubt many notice or say thanks.

I don't know if you have ever worked in a job like this (I did with my mom when I was in high school and college). It sucks.

So, I decided to make her this little token of appreciation ... in celebration of the dirt she removes FOR ME so that I have a clean working environment.



And I hope that she enjoys herself with a friend at the Cheesecake Factory. Because everyone deserves a little indulgence.

This card was super easy to put together...and especially easy with one of the newest releases from the Ippity line (THIS SET). I generally have a hard time working with bright colors (I am more a grunge girl), but this one came together pretty easily....although if you saw the state of my table when I finished, you would have thought otherwise! And I left it all out and scattered, so I'm sure my cats are having a blast about now!

Anyway, enjoy your day....and remember, there's a bunch of folks out there keeping our world a little nicer to look at.

Warm Little Sweetness

I must admit that I have become quite fond of making little bitty sweaters.   It all started on a recent trek to India traveling for business. I needed to carry just enough yarn to keep my busy bee hands occupied during the evenings in my hotel room. There are just so many hats a person can make, right?  Anyway, having limited quantities of yarn, I decided to give a small sweater a go.  This is the first one I created. I had just the perfect little buttons to add! (It really is amazing what one might find in their cosmetic bag) I love it.  This sweater is also featured on the Pinque Peacock blog   since I used her buttons.  (Go visit and see the buttons up close) This makes the sweater a really one of a kind project! This next one is perfect for a little preemie.  It's so tiny, but features a great big snowflake! Close up of the snowflake…. I also sewed on one of the StampinUp! Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  I think it finished it off nice
