Pretty Please?...

Hello, hello!!!

First of all, THANK YOU to the sweet sweet souls for your emails, blog/facebook/twitter comments, etc. all pertaining to my whining about not feeling good.  I have to say this is probably the most run down I've felt in a while (just in time for a week of DOUBLE previews everyday, LOL!, it keeps me going :)   You guys just are the sweetest and I THANK YOU.

Another person I thank is my AMAZING DH.  I swear that guy is always stopping at the store, popping in a load of laundry, SOMETHING for me every time I turn around. We do so much as work at home moms-have so many hats we love to wear, that this is truly just a blessing to me, and if you ask me, how it should be ;)

So I had this INSTANT idea pop into my head when I saw this "PRETTY PLEASE" stamp, your FIRST SNEAK PEEK of the UNITY JULY Kit of the Month!  WOO HOO!  I have to admit that after 10 years (16 of dating), we really are WELL. OILED. MACHINE.   If he's at Trader Joe's and I forget to tell him we're out of creamer, chances are, he's got it in the bag anyway. I LOVE. THIS.

However, when the OCCASIONAL need sets in for a reminder or a little personal 'PRETTY PLEASE", I created these:

I used the new stamp "PRETTY PLEASE" sentiment from the Kit plus the beautiful image on the bottom of my notecards is from Samantha Walker's "BUTTERFLY GARDEN" set, also available at stores that carry UNITY!  I absolutely adore her whimsical flourishes and beautiful design!  

The next photo is of all of the notecards I made along with one of my favorite perfumes that DH LOVES.   It's kinda cute/romantic right?  Actually, even when it's NOT romantic, the sense of smell really can make an experience so much stronger.  My Grandmother used to spray a bit of perfume on her handwritten letters.   I used to spend almost all summer with her in Door County, WI and I used to miss her so much that this was so comforting and wonderful for me to get a letter that smelled like her after we had returned home.

Well, I hope you like my idea and my sample today-I will be BACK TOMORROW with MORE Unity sneak peeks-thanks for stopping by and I will be RIGHT BACK w/ another sneak peek from The Greeting Farm!    For now, head over to the UNITY BLOG to see what's cookin' for this, our first day of FOUR posts with the new KIT!  WOO HOO!

It's a busy week here on the blog, folks!  LOOKING FORWARD TO IT!

Live, Love, laugh, smile, and say Please... ;) Jess xoxo 

Last but not least, here's a BEAUTIFUL quote that totally reminds me of my DH and found after Brooke posted some AMAZING quotes by this guy:

"He loved her for almost everything she was & she decided that was enough to let him stay for a very long time. " ~Brian Andreas
