I am totally lost, if you should find me please return me to the house of sugar!
I can not seem to find my way out of the mountain of paperwork on my desk, we have loads of new artwork, sample sheet of new rubber,boxes of prizes and candy galore that are waiting to be shipped out to some lucky winners, card maker of the year amongst those lucky people. New packaging samples, ideas for competitions as part of our birthday bash, some beautiful card samples and that's on top of my general work at my desk.
All made the more frustration as its the tattie holidays, winter has arrived and I have my kids hanging around my neck and I had planned to be in sunny Florida but just did not get there.:(
The highlight of next week will be Megan doing her Brownie promise.!

I hope that this October holidays sees something more exciting coming your way.

Aw I'm on my hols do you want me to come and help?!

My Simply Sassy girls arrived this morning....just off to upload my first pics!

Carol said...

Awww bless, wish I lived closer to you cause then I'd offer to give you a hand! Hope you get through it all. Have a great weekend. Lotsa luv xxx

Elaine said...

Sorry to hear you are lost.
Paperwork is my job, and I'm excellent at it! If I lived closer I'd come and do your paperwork for you (might have a sneaky peak at new designs whilst I'm there!).
I couldn't help with artwork, but purchase ledger, sales ledger, vat, wages and general business admin I'm a total whizz at.

Hope Megan enjoys her time in the Brownies, very good fun and they learn a lot too.

Take care
Love Elaine xx

Lorraine said...

Suzi said...

Awe! bless you, there is nothing more frustrating than not being somewhere you should be (Florida) it happened to me in Jan when globespan went burst!!!! it makes normal daily chores that much more heavy. I do hope you get away soon for a well earned break.

I don't envy you Karen, I've just got crafty work to do - but it seems to take 4 times as long with kidshanging round yer neck.

and I remember the Brownie Promise well, although I think it's probably a little different now...

I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God,
To serve the Queen,
And help other people
And to keep the Brownie Guide Law.

have a good weekend quine

Maria Therese said...

Oh I know how to help.. You'll just send me the prizes and sample stamps.. that should make it a little cleaner on your desk :D

Judy's Crafty Moments said...

awww Karen...I am sorry you are feeling overwhelmed! Hope you see some light at the end of the tunnel and enjoy your tattie holidays just even a little bit......

On another note...so excited to see some of the new designs :))

Hugs Judy xx

Is she doing her promise next week? Thought it was the centennial ceremony doodah on Wed and Brownies wasn't back until 2nd week of term? Speaking of ceremony - if I pick Megan up to take her would you be able to collect them at 8.30pm, as I've got a class on? Will be popping into the shop on Monday - will hopefully see you then since I missed you yesterday!

Juls said...

...sorry to hear you are drowining in paperwork, and the holiday thing didn't work out!!! I do appreciate all the work you do, the postie deliverd me a fabulous sassy package today!! so excited!!! take care of you....hugs Juls

Ruthie said...

Make a list!!!!! Then use it as a taper to set the rest of the paperwork on fire!


Paula said...

My husband claims I create chaos & untidiness so I'd not be much help. Actually despite my helpful nature & have a knack of attracting trouble when it comes to paperwork so I'd settle for Elaine's offer & stay well clear of me if I were you. Hope you surface for the weekend & manage to have some me time too. Do take care.
Much love
Paula (PEP)

Hiya Karen,

Stop the search,me found you!

Your under the desk in a box marked Florida!

Poor you,this time of year does get very busy in craft & card terms!

Don't you think this year has flown & that there seems to be less hours in a day? Or is that just me?

I don't have kids but you will be overwhelmed with shop,challenges & kids do need their mum!

You will get there,lots of offers of help from followers & a step back can help with a deep breath thrown in!

My poor little doggy has been unwell,she has been screaming in pain,her little knee caps keep slipping around.Just found out the other day but she been sore for a few days!Just as well I am usually up late or I would be tearing my hair out by now!

Thank god vet gave me painkillers for her!

Life is strange,
Life is fast,
Life is full
Life is your joy
Life is your plan
Life is your future
It's your life,remember to live it,have fun,relax when you can.
Most of ALL smile & laugh every day.
Treat yourself as others would, with respect!
Don't expect so much from yourself,be fair to yourself.

Be kind to yourself!Remember the word "Me" in yourself!

Casper 16/10/10

Take care
Big Hugs
