I started a new job two weeks ago. After 20-something years at the big company I loved, I'm now working in a completely new market. I spent the entire first week setting up 30-minute meetings with everyone I could think of. I asked them questions. I asked them MORE questions. I invited some of them back three times! Everyone was unfailingly kind, and helpful, even though I'm sure I was asking them the equivalent of "Why does rain fall out of the sky?"
Over the weekend, I made a huge basket of thank yous. These were inspired by a tag I saw on Pinterest, which led me to Margriet's blog. I LOVE the bloggers in Germany and the Netherlands .. the clean style they have is just amazing. Lots of fussy-cutting and color without ever looking fussy!
Margriet used white embossing on colored cardstock, and then washi underneath. It's kind of amazing how fast the washi goes down, and how MUCH is on a roll (no need to hoard washi!). I added a punch of DSP and a star, to make mine my own.
Baker's secret: Make all of each component before you assemble the bags -- MUCH faster!
