After 30 years of working I've collected a lot of funny things that people passed back and forth. I'm going to share some of the funniest with you at the bottom of my posts. I discovered a copy of a 1955 article from Housekeeping Monthly entitled "The Good Wife's Guide". As the days go by, I will educate you on how to become the perfect housewife. Please share any thoughts you might have as you read through them.
I'm ashamed to say that I missed the birthday of a really special friend. We were out of town and I didn't check my calendar far enough in the future. This is the card I created for her. The paper is from the DCWV Old World Stack and was stamped with a Recollections pocket watch. The rabbit is Mo Manning's white rabbit on top of Tim Holtz's Weather Clock Die Cut touched up with a gold metallic rub-on. The copics I used were: C0, C3, RV00, BV11, BV000, BV13, BV01, Y19, Y35, Y02 and a touch of Spica Gold. I thought it turned out very well. The inside was stamped with a JustRite alphabet set and says, "I'm late....I'm late....

The Good Wife's Guide:
"Have dinner ready. Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a delicious meal ready, on time for his return. This is a way of letting him know that you have been thinking about him and are concerned about his needs. Most men are hungry when they come home and the prospect of a good meal (especially his favourite dish) is part of the warm welcome needed."
