One Dissatisfied Michaels Customer

Hello everyone, I just need to vent today cause right know I am totally dissapointed with Michaels. Actually I have been dissapointed for quite sometime know but really never vocalized myself until know.

Point number 1 - Why is it in Canada we pay 3 or even sometimes 4 times more then the American price???
I decided to do a little research and here is 1 small example I came across. Majority of the Inkadoo clear stamp sets here at Michaels sell for $ 16.99 cdn and A.C. Moore a competitor company has these stamps for $ 10.99 US. To me, this is quite a difference considering the how many of these sets you purchase. What I have decided to do is stop shopping at Michaels Canada and go over to the States for better deals and prices.

Points number two - Last year, Michaels in Canada accepted any US competitors coupons and know they refuse. I decided to call there corporate office in Irving Texas to find out if there company policy had changed. The person who answered the phone was unable to provide me with an answer so I was transfered to Merchandising and of course got voice mail. Left a detailed message and requested for someone to get back to me. Yes, so far no one has called back.... nice isn't it.

Point number three - why is it that every location does things differently. One location will take the coupon while the other won't. There are so many little experiences I can tell you that would just blow your mind. They really need to built on CUSTOMER SATISFACTION and PRICE.

I would like to know what think, drop me a line.

Cuddlebug Butterfly Die and Embossing

I am really enjoying all my stamps from Hero Art, but this card was made from Cuddlebug butterfly die cut and emboss.  Isn't this butterfly cute, mind you I was just experimenting really quickly.  I have wonderful card and scrapbook layout ideas with this item. Stay tuned for more examples.

Live, Love, Laugh

I love this Photo from our weekend get away to Picton. The children look so cute, I had to take at least 20 shots to get the right one and I think I nailed it.  My son is a carbon copy of my husband, and we call him Necmi Jr.

My daughter is my princess, polite, sensitive a real jewel...

I am currently working on two more photos of the children that were also taken at Picton. Those pictures are out of this world. I will share them with you as soon as I finish.  Well that all I have for you today, hope you enjoyed it.  Happy srapping all !!! 

Thinking of you #1

I love this card, cause I got the inspiration from Kristina Werner's Finally Friday card.

Thinking of you #2

This card turned out very refreshing with it's beautiful summer colors.

Not so great Bithday Card

Hi Everyone, it's been a while since my last post cause I have been busy making some more cards and a scrapbook page. I have some goodies to share with you. This card did not turn out the way I would have loved it.  Something seems really off with this but my daughter really likes it.  I have not really decided what I want to do with this card, I am very close to trashing it. I am one of the worst self critics you can think of, I like perfection and when I don't get it, it bugs me to no end.

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let not this blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore, be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.

--- Max Ehrmann, 1927
