A Super Quick Gift!

Ever since I met Mary Kay, the founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics, 15-years ago while in college, when waiting tables in Dallas, I fell in love with her and her products.  I have to admit I strayed from them many times due to not having a consistent Mary Kay consultant over the years.

When we bought our home 2.5 years ago, one of my neighbors was a top-selling Mary Kay consultant (car and everything) that knocked on my door with a “welcome to the neighborhood” sample kit.  I was so excited to have a sales consultant down at the end of the cul-de-sac.  Unfortunately, her and her hubby bought another home and moved 3 hours away, but since she has such huge client base in our area, she still maintains us all including making us these amazing salads that she brings to us when she comes up for pleasure and business.  She happen to be up visiting friends and delivering products this week so when she dropped off my products and those yummy salads, I wanted to give her something special that shows her my appreciation that she can use to add special touches to her business.

I just ordered some new stamps from K. Andrew that a blog buddy, Lee Lee’s Card Designs, just became a design team member for.  They are super cute and they worked well for my project.  Combined with my Cricut Cart- Forever Young and some cute paper I got from, I had this project done in less than 45 minutes.

Thanks for sharing a piece of “getting a little girly in a quick way” pie to me.

I am a stay at home domestic engineer that has a love for my family, food, writing, crafting, photography and most of all a clean and orderly house. I feel I was born in the wrong era in many things and the only thing I would change if I was a "Donna Reed or June Cleaver" kind of mom is that I would still get to wear my sweats and Crocs while washing the windows.
