I’m going to let you in on a personal secret. I have a little black book. It contains information about some very special people I know. Some I have known for quite a long time while others I’ve only met once. Some I may have only been with for 5 minutes, but a girl has to keep up with all these people, right? Well, let’s just say that until two nights ago, I had a maroon book and it looked like this…
This book is at least 20 years old and contains a very dirty secret. I’m going open the cover so you can see something extremely disturbing and shocking. Ready?
Okay, I’m busted. For a long time I have been stuffing business cards into this address book in absolutely the laziest, sloppiest way ever. “My name is Helen and I am a business card hoarder and stuffer.” Well, no more people. I am reforming myself and my method of business card storage. I hemmed and hawed about how to properly store all these cards so I can find them easily. I had not come up with any great solution until I found this at Dollar Tree….
Who knew that for just $1.00 I could solve my business card laziness? End of story right? Of course not. Anyone who has read two or more of my blog posts realizes that there is a major problem with this little black book. Have you guessed it yet? Hello people, it’s black. Just black. Plain black. Boring black. And you should know by now I don’t do plain and boring, right? So I grabbed some supplies and got to work.
Surprisingly I was able to pick the papers and image in less than a minute which truly is a record for me!
Then I looked through my treasure chest of embellishments and chose this set. These are beautiful 3-D stickers with glitter and rhinestones. There is just one tiny sticker I used but it makes a big impact on this project.
Ready to see the final result? The Helenized version of the little black book? Okay, here it is…
Oh, but that’s not all. I’m going to bare it all. Here’s the inside…
This little project took less than 30 minutes and that included filing all the business cards into categories. I am so excited because now I will be able to locate the card I need without having a major guilt trip over my dirty little secret. I have been reformed people and you can be too. Just go to Dollar Tree and shell out $1.00 for the card holder ($2.00 if you include the 3-D sticker set) and set yourself free from your sloppy ways!
Have you ever been somewhere and you see something awesome that just makes you stop in your tracks and think (or yell out loud) NO WAY!!! Well, I had one of these moments this past weekend. First I need to give you a little background. Hopefully most of you know who this is….
Now, if you have read my blog a couple of times you should also know who this is….
You see, Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of my favorite movies. Of course it features Audrey Hepburn, but did you know that in the movie she has a cat named CAT? Anyway, imagine my reaction when I found this at a flea market this past Saturday….
NO WAY! This is a packaged of “10 refreshing, fragranced hand and face mini wet wipes in a resealable pack”. It has a picture of a cat dressed up as Holly Golightly. There was absolutely no chance of me leaving these behind. I bought the only two packages with this picture that the lady had. I am thinking that MAYBE, MAYBE I’ll give the second pack away in my 25th blog giveaway along with a bunch of other goodies to ONE lucky winner this time. Oooooh, I wasn’t going to mention this but I just have to because ( I’m an A type) something’s not quite right with these wipes. The manufacturer says these wipes are “My Pear Lady” fragranced wipes. They got Breakfast at Tiffany’s mixed up with another Audrey Hepburn film called, “My Fair Lady”. Okay, I know, I’m too picky and most of you don’t care anyway!!! I hope you all get some fun “NO WAY” moments this week, especially now that the Christmas rush is upon us. Keep reading my blog and watch out for my 25th blog giveaway!!!
