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.
