EAD Designs: thanks for your kindness


Hello and Welcome to the EAD Designs Blog Hop!
{it officially starts at 7 am pacific}

You should have arrived here from the Spectacular Shellye's blog


If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the EAD Designs blog.

We're still doing give-a-ways!  Comment as you hop along for a chance to win free goodies!!!!

I gotta be honest, as the days get closer to when EAD Designs closes, it makes me sad:(  But since I don't want to be a negative nellie, let's move on, shall we?!

I'm thankful for a ton of people...especially people that help my kids out.

One of the requirements to graduate at the kids' school is to job shadow a person in the profession of their choice.  My girl is leaning towards being a biologist {Proud Momma here!}...so my friend put her in contact with a Staff Scientist and Research Assistant at a Seattle Biotech company.  I'm SUPER excited for my girl to be able to experience her first job shadowing!

I made this for my friend as a little thank you giftie...it's from the T $ Spot that I slightly altered.


Originally the notepad had fuchsia grosgrain ribbon on the top {it looked horrible} so I removed it...put a strip of cork inbetween the punched circles and used The Twinery's Mandarin.  


I popped an Aqua mist belly band on there and embellished it with EAD Stickerz:

Coffee shop


Thank you sentiments


The orange sticker is actually from the T $ spot.  The inked coffee stains are ala Verve Stamps.  I'll be packaging the notepad up with a Starbucks card {of course!}...

Now hippety hop over to Jenn's
