Simple Sharpie Messages

I can't even believe how busy I have been at work. I have a great boss but I think he forgets I'm just one person in a one person department with a very murky job description that evidently has 'Other Duties As Assigned' emblazoned on it with a BLACK SHARPIE in 32 point upper case font.

Let's see today I....I can't even remember all I did but I know I'm exhausted! I did have one bright spot in my day. A former student stopped by to spend time with me. She fondly reminisced about her college days and hours spent in my office. She is a wonderful young lady - newly married - happy as a clam - living in Florida - doing work she loves and I feel privileged that she stopped by to share her time with me.

Oops this one was supposed to go in the Omaha pile for fabric friend Mary Lee. I managed to incorporate fabric into all of her requested cards. Yea for scraps! This one is pretty simple but I like the simplicity. I think it is a subliminal message to me - SIMPLIFY!
