Very Cute Packaging for Mixes — Great for Teacher’s Gifts

December 12, 2007 at 9:37 pm

Musings of An Addict shared this link to some cute Christmas treat ideas, how to wrap them up in style.  I may use my computer rather than stamping the messages and art. 

As an aside, I don’t like storing wooden block stamps.  I feel they are too heavy, take up too much room, and I don’t use one design enough to warrant a long term investment.   I do use Acrylic Stamps quite a bit.  They are flat, and cling to an acrylic block, and you can see through the block and stamp to square them.  They take VERY little room to store, and I’ve used them over and over and over on various projects. 

I’ll share an example of their use soon with some ornaments I made today using them. 

Technology…gotta love it!  Makes me wanna SHOUT!  (Yeah, it really doesn’t take much to get me goin’!) 

I’ve got my eye on sales for: Winterland (2peas),

and I’m seriously thinking about stocking stuffer ordering these!

Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
