“What do we live for; if it is not to make life less difficult for each other? ”
—Mary Ann Evans (pen name George Eliot; 1819-1880), novelist
Today I was thinking of things that I can do to make life easier for my sweet husband. (I'm home now mostly full time. I still work PT outside of the home and run our business from the house, and am still adjusting to this role.) A couple of the things I thought of is to have dinner ready when he comes home from work (or at least on it's way) and things basically picked up and kept tidy at home so that he doesn't have to worry about these things after a long day at the office. He works hard and shouldn't be burdened with tons of extras at home. (Goodness knows, I have a pretty nice "honey do" list anyway, lol!) I know that may sound silly, retro, or 50's mentality to some, but I think it's just a couple small things I can do to lessen the load of someone I love.
What is something YOU can do to lessen the load of someone else? I would love to hear!
I made a slew of these nifty little 3x3 "cards" for a Valentine's book that I m making with some girls in a swap. They were super fun and super easy to do.
Papers are CTMH, Stamps are CTMH, Ribbon is American Crafts, Brads are probably CTMH (they are all mixed together so who knows!)
I used the Quickutz Nesting dies to cut the scalloped circle and then ran it back through to emboss a circle around the inner edge. This was my first sample.. I replaced the scalloped circle on it once I had it just right. :)
