Yesterday, I actually did as I planned. I wrote all of Moose’s thank-you notes for all his birthday presents, including the ones he received a month ago. I need to go buy some more stamps (before the price increases, grrr).
This morning I sat at the computer and designed placecards for WineGuy’s party. I use Print Shop 2 for almost all my projects. I had problems centering the designs properly in the printable area. Then I kept turning the paper the wrong way and printing over sections that were already done. Very frustrating! I want to know why printing programs don’t print things the way you see them on the screen. Particularly with Print Shop, I need to remember that the print image on the screen will come out upside down from the printer. For cards and things it’s not a problem, but for printing business card templates – and selected cards at that– it’s a hassle.
When I finished with the placecards, I made gift tags for the party favors to be set at each place. I’m giving out small boxes of Norman Love chocolates. Without a doubt, these are the best chocolates anywhere. Period. Don’t argue with me. Norman Love used to be a pastry chef with the Ritz Carlton for years. A few years ago, he opened his own chocolate factory in an industrial park near the Fort Myers, Florida airport. He has since expanded into his own building, complete with a Chocolate Salon next door. These are the finest quality chocolates with the finest quality fillings you’ve ever had. I mean, when was the last time you had chocolate filled with passionfruit?? Simply exquisite. I’ll head out to Norman Love’s tomorrow after I go to the wine store to choose a special bottle for WineGuy.
Busy, busy, busy. Too bad my desk is still a disaster.
