Are you reasonable? Am I?

I work for a wonderful and large pgc. (Is it pgc or pcg? Anyway, packaged goods company OR packaged consumer goods? I think by now you know what I mean.) Part of my responsibility is to accurately document and report quality concerns. I always knew this would be or should be a good fit for me as i enjoy the art of communication in most forms. Talking, IM'ing, texting ~ etc.

We are widely known for standing behind the top quality of our everyday consumable goods. I love that, in all honestly, most of my working life has been spent in only two companies that I have always been proud to work for. My question is, if you are disappointed in a product ~ do you contact the company to inform them? To get something off you chest? Because you somehow feel entitled? Do we live in a imperfect world all the while expecting perfection? I appreciate consumers reporting quality concerns so we can continue to improve our much loved products. So my question is, what's with the attitude? Are you really upset that once in your life the product was a let down? Are you not relieved it can be reported and replaced over a short phone call? How do I in turn treat others?

New House Card

Not SU stamps but used their colors and papers.

SU: Mellow Moss paper with Chocolate Chip and Groovy Guava

Birthday Cupcake.

I've made this card before but I jazzed it up a little for my friend Camille. It's made mostly from Stampin Up's BIG BOLD BIRTHDAY set. I like it ~ but I like all the two step stamp sets. The top of the cupcake is a half cut scallop with a little diamond dust sprinkled on.
SU: chocolate chip and pretty in pink on white textured card stock.
Happy 14th Cami!

I used to know Janet Jackson!

My beautiful friend Janet got married in December.
No longer is she Janet Jackson,
she's Mrs. Howard. Don't they make a cute couple?

WilloDean update ~ What a difference a nap makes!

I wish I'd blogged about my experiences with WilloDean for the last several years. It has been amazing, God teaches me so much from a friend who says very few comprehendable things and doesn't ever remember my name. None of that matters. On to today, Brenda is yucky sick. So while she wants to see her mom, it's just not a great idea. So I went to feed her lunch and dinner. When I first got there this morning, she was sort of slumpt over in her chair. Something that Brenda says happens because she suffers from mini strokes or TIA's. When lunch was ready, she ate most of her meal and then her caregiver Peaches, put her down for a nap. When I went back at supper time, she was doing so much better! She was sitting straight up and had already downed almost half her egg salad sandwich. I helped her with her medicine (which she told me looks bad) and it does, chips, yougart, cake, and we always encourage her to drink the water. She tryed to sing a hymm with me, told me she was happy, and on her own, thanked me for coming to help her. She is to me, such an example of God's love in action. What a difference a nap makes.
