fast and fabulous?

does 4 days count as fast?

I suppose that depends on what we’re talking about. Returning a beautiful shirt to Nordy’s because it had a hole in it and them searching the country for a like item and one showing up from California in 4 days…well that’s pretty fabulous. Kudos that Nordy’s still has a hold on the vanishing art of customer service.

For a scrapbook layout to submit for a call for layouts made in less than 30 minutes? maybe not so much.  I wonder if anyone really makes layouts in 30 minutes, I sure don’t but the secret I think is making them look like they could be done in 30. So on the eve of the eve of the submission deadline this month I set out to make a layout that would meet the requirements.  Umm…maybe this girl should not wait until the last minute, now there’s a novel concept.

So I picked out my papers…that alone is a good portion of 30 minutes

and then the extras…another 20 minutes

not feeling it…went to bed

came back next day…still no mojo

the next day, I cut…and re-cut… adhered a few pieces

and it sat waiting for just the last little bits and voila four days later…

needless to say I missed the deadline, which is fine since I’m not sure even after 4 days if I love it.

The good news, I did submit another layout for the same call and it did get picked up. Yay!

Happy weekend!
