I made this mug rug for a friend who is retiring.  I thought the bright colors would make his day brighter as I think a life-changing event such as this can be a little daunting.  I was at his office recently and noticed labels on everything: in box, out box, phone list, applications, etc.  “That’s part of our new Lean Program,” he said.  “They tell people where things should go.”

So I got out my label maker and made some labels to make him feel more comfortable.  I gave him a To-Do List to think about during his morning coffee!  Hope he gets a kick out of it!

What I really wanted to tell you about is the give-away that Mary Lou Weidman is having.  Recently Mary Lou was locked out of her blog and even Google couldn’t help her, so she had to start a new blog.  If you were a follower, you may have wondered why you haven’t seen any posts lately.  Please go to her new blog (link on my sidebar) and become a follower on her new blog.  Or if you were not a follower but would like to become one, click here.  Either way, take a look at Mary Lou’s new blog and the darling give-away that she is having.  You could be the winner!

Michele at With Heart and Hands has a great tutorial for liberated flying geese!

Stay Positive!

Caroll that is brilliant - I love it! The labels are the perfect touch. Are you joining in the fish swap with Mary Lou? I would love to but I don't think I'll have any time!
