Who’s heard of them?
I hate to say this, but I think Swatch has some serious competition for my watch-purchasing dollars (ha!)
You can learn more HERE, but what impressed me the most wasn’t there “Who We Are” statement, but their “What We Want to Be” statement. I’m always eager to grow and improve and yet it’s overwhelming when you think about everything you want and need to change–the idea of sharing where you’re headed really appeals to me both as business owner and a human being.
By the way, this is NOT the watch I ordered.
If you have time, you’ll have to visit their website and see if you can guess which watch I ordered.
Naturally, I will let you know when it arrives!
Ha. If you have a wood floor, you could be dusting while wearing your slippers …
and YES, I think this is one of those “As Seen on TV” type products, but still it’s ingenious. These are called Microfiber Cleaning Slippers and you can purchase them at Amazon. The best part is the dusters can be removed and thrown in the washing machine and they come is several colors too!
I’m not eating many cookies these days, but I want to give OREOs a Happy Birthday shout out because, hello?
They are 100 Years Old (that’s crazy!) You can learn more HERE. The real reason I’m posting this is because I LOVE this commercial …
Every time I see this 30-second message, I’m struck with the idea that happy memories are so powerful. The children on the train are simply reminding all of these people of some earlier association with OREOs and the result is a magical transformation in mood. OREO is using this “power of memory” to celebrate their brand and sell cookies, but you and I can use it to elevate our lives.
Think about that!
The newest Ella e-book — because it is so UNIQUE.
It is called Book Crafting and it just might be the first electronic book dedicated to the ADMIRATION of traditional (old) books.
It opens and closes with layouts about loving books and reading which then sandwich dozens of ideas for using, enjoying and celebrating the beautiful elements of books that we cherish and *almost* miss as our culture becomes ever-more about digital delivery.
To see one of the projects in this book, you can watch Wendy and Angie on The My Craft Channel.
If you’ve read my blog in the last two weeks, then you already know that I’m helping to host, TWO super-fun events for National Scrapbook Day on Saturday, May 5th …
BUT, you might not know that you can now BRING A FRIEND for free.
Here’s the deal …
If you know me at all, then you know I’m pretty spontaneous.
We decided to pull these LIVE events together at the very last minute.
Registration is going well, but I want it to go BETTER — Doodlebug has invested a LOT into making this a really WONDERFUL day and I want to remove as many barriers as I can, so that if you could physically come, you will. This is now and $100 dollar value for $25 if you bring a friend.
Click HERE to register!
After you sign up, email Allison@stacyjulian.com with your friend’s name, address and phone number. If you’ve already registered, you can simply email Allison the same information.
I really am looking forward to seeing everyone that is coming — including Crystal from TEXAS (yay!)
BTW: Nancy B is my winner in yesterday’s Design Challenges giveaway.
Her “challenge” really spoke to me, she writes …
“My most current challenge is turning off the “I’m overwhelmed” by all the choices (pictures, product, etc.). I am having a hard time just focusing and I miss losing myself in the process.”
I know Nancy is not alone in this. It’s so interesting that as our options have multiplied we’ve actually become more paralyzed than ever before — back in the day when colors, patterns and products were limited, it was easier to start a page and be productive! I’ve found that Elizabeth’s challenges have completely helped, because I have something to act on and don’t have to invest mentally energy in eliminating the possibilities. It has been FREEING to say the least.
I’ll see you on the message boards.
