Yes, I can research up popcorn machine supplies AND cute music box tunes from before I hit ground and I’m midway through as most of you’ve  heard of turning work activities into a greeting card… office depot offers 4.6 cards with envelope for double nickels- single sided print and I’m hoping for 80 cents double dided (sided, sorry got carried away with alliteration) with envelop.
 
for those of you who abhore computer jargon, this means I deal with files like pictures of the art, so far Microsoft paint saved as jpegs and rotated so I shouldn’t have issues later and wordpad to transcribe the texts to copy into text boxes on paint to mock up or make a scratch copy of a greeting card which is folded on the left so the 2nd half of the paper page is the first thing you see.  then the text of insides is like any other book.  this process while slow and chunky is enough to have a printed idea –  now I had to get an office suit as they’re far more powerful with borders indentations and margines and sizing pictures to do this right and save it as a file office joints can print from.I don’t get to have them embossed or hot-stamped as I haven’t the time….. that’s to say raise the letters or have them reflect in shiny metal brights the words or edges.  but you can bet your boots I checked into it.
now imagine me on my day off at god’s knows the a.m. printing margin setups then researching the printing costs of pretty cards.

  1. Cool info!
    I love music boxes! I have two old ones!
    HUGS!!! Happy Whee-kend!!! 🙂

  2. So then, you’re creating those musical greeting cards? Those are fun! I really like funny cards. I just bought a birthday card with three kids on it. The following captions are above each child: ” My mommy said love me.” My mommy said God made me.” My mommy said I came from a fifth of Jack and a snowstorm.”

  3. The first number reminds me of when our organist sets it to bells, and plays a number that is not deemed “religious”. It’s a unique sound. The second number almost lost me till the fella picked up the tempo and began singing. Beautiful. You lost me on the third number. I just listened to a dark metal song about unrequited love……it’s heavy.
