Finding Beauty Friday

Finding beauty in coworkers at Paper Source who everyday come in to work with beautiful attitudes.  Preparing for workshops, presenting invitation training, inspiring our customers, and just always having smiles and loving that we are able to be creative everyday and get paid for it!  Pictured above are new additions to our team.  On the left is Courtney Craft and on the right is Beth Wodnick........good customers make the best co-workers!!!
 
Finding the beauty is a surprise visit to Philly to take my children out to dinner.  It was my husband's idea.  To spend some time with them and hear about their job, their new classes, their new painting and projects, and how a new slide trombone is making a huge difference for the better is pure beauty.
Finding beauty in everything I walk by everyday even in the dead of winter.  I was able to go into the musuem of Princeton University this week.  I wanted to buy a book that explained the architecture a little more.  I found a book about the gargoyles on campus......I can't wait to follow the map and take pictures and share pictures.......I am going to wait until it is a little warmer.

Finding beauty in our demo desk......working together to straighten out a place we all share to create everyday........it is so much more pleasurable when it is organized.  It's been fun making valentines with our customers too.  From handwritten thank you notes recieved, my nephew turning one, my mom being excited because she had fun in Atlantic City, a facebook note for plans to go out to lunch in the Spring to a husband who has planned a vacation cruise to the Bahamas.....to 2 feet of snow coming our way.....it was a pleasure to remember all of the beauty I experienced this week.  Thank you for letting me participate in Finding Beauty Friday hosted by Dipity Road........serendipity is my favorite word.

Hi Geralyn!

What a lovely blog you have here and what a sweet post.

I love the photos and your children are so lovely and look like they were tickled to get to spend the time with you.

I agree-- orginized life makes it so much more beautiful... infact I am such a list maker that if i do something and its not ON the list.. i write it down and scratch it off LOL

Thanks for joining in our FFB-- looking forward to many more wonderful posts from you.

Geralyn,
Such a lovely post. It is truly a blessing to be content and appreciative of all we see and hear. Your children look very content and happy as well. How nice that you were able to spend some time with them. Keep warm and be careful with those snowdrifts!

I love The Paper Source. I's been one of my all time favorite stores for years. We have several here in the Chicago Area. Did you see the article in the newest issue of Where Women Create? It was fun to read about the CEO.

Geralyn,

I love your new wintry header and the fact that you find beauty in the seemingly ordinary. I look at things much the same way. To me, there is beauty in the simplest things, so often overlooked by most (who are too much in a hurry), and for those of us who recognize the beauty, we are blessed with a rare treasure. To me, it's a personal gift from above.

I have ordered online from Paper Source a couple of times now and I'm so impressed with the speed and accuracy of delivery. I ordered a card and some stamps one afternoon and they arrived the next morning. It's crazy fast. Love the products.

Hope you have a lovely remainder of the week and a special Valentine's Day.

Blessings always,
Linda

So very nice to see your children for a surprise visit and dinner. I do love the PaperSource store, but we do not have one in Nashville.
