Thanks for popping in. Strength is the word of the day. It really is surprising how strong we are, you know. How resilient we are. How much we can handle. Just got to keep a calm head on and keep ticking boxes. They say God only gives you as much as you can handle. Well, he evidently has a lot of confidence in Dave!
So much piling up at work, but Dave just keeps his eye on the road ahead. I can’t even begin to list the number of things Dave has got on his plate right now. As if firing up new injection moulding machines and imminent Pergamano production weren’t enough, the new filter extraction unit for all our laser machines is being fitted next week, which mean several rooms have to be customised, the power supply has to be sorted, and then 10 laser machines have to be moved from one factory location to the new one. Then of course there’s the warehouse transfer. And just to crown it all, the bloody washout unit for stamp manufacture finally gave up the ghost on Tuesday. No washout unit, no stamp production. It’s that simple. Priority rearrange – so he’s been up to his armpits in machinery, trying to repair it for the last couple of days. Failing a repair, it’s many thousands of pounds for a replacement and even worse, many weeks on order. Lost production, lost business. The perfect storm. Oh, hang on. Let’s orbit that little lot around darling Dad’s funeral, just for good measure.
What can I say, except that This too shall Pass. . But we’ve already used up that daily quote, so how about this one? Just for Dave.
Today’s quote #20?
I made a piece of artwork a while ago, just using a piece of scrap and stamping onto it. I used a selection of hats from those wonderful hats, bags and shoes stamps of ours, designed by Mel. I love these. Doesn’t matter how you use them – they just look so classy and arty. Dear Sam Crowe also loves these. She has done some fabulous artwork using them too!
Here’s the collection of 4 stampsets plus masks. Never fear! We actually have these already made, so I can shine a light on them! In fact, I just has a word with Tom, and we’ve got a very special bloggy offer for you:
They’re all available individually at half price (plus your club discount), but if you get the set, then you save even more.
I love these stamps. If you haven’t got them, may I encourage you gently to take advantage? You’ll be amazed at what lovely artwork you can create. And if you’ve already got them, may I encourage you gently to either post your art on Facebook, or make something with them ?!
