"Hanging out with Paperly Peeps"

Just not enough hours in the day… Ever feel that way? I am going to say something sort of dumb… maybe? Uh? I don’t know but here is my simple take on things…..

It’s amazing we all survive.

Seriously, when you add up family commitments, work commitments, school activities, extracurricular activities, civic commitments, blended family dilemmas, grocery shopping, and keeping your marriage HOT, it isn’t easy….never mind trying to find time for yourself.

Are you with me?

Yesterday I was cranky and annoyed, challenged and upset. I came home from work feeling a bit out of sorts and wasn’t able to shake it. Then, I spent the evening at a Paperly Party (Big thanks to hostess with the mostess, Sally!) and I was able to take a deep breath and be with other professional women, other moms, daughters, wives and sisters…. and my attitude shifted, my spirit lifted. Just to switch gears for a bit a time was refreshing and delightful.

Paperly has been a wonderful experience for a few reasons…. Yes, beautiful paper is a joy to sell. (I just received the embossed Crest note card and it made me want to rub it on my cheek, the quality of this little number is impressive) but in addition to beautiful products, the Paperly Party has been an amazing education about women. How we are all so busy, how we often deny ourselves little luxuries, how we all have the same struggles, it may be a different kid, husband, job or activity but we juggle, we balance and we try to strive for success and peace, at home, at school, at work. Paperly has opened my eyes about being a sister, a friend, a saleswoman and a DIVA. Does it sound a little corny, that a little paper networking party for 2 hours can be a quick study on the human spirit? That it can make me feel proud to be a woman? Maybe, but for today, I am going to smile knowing I am growing from the experience. Honestly, it is a power boost to my spirit. Go ahead, call me a cornball! But I prefer Diva!

When you mentioned Paperly peeps it reminded me that The Day newspaper has a peeps contest every year. It would be fun to dress some peeps up and show them using Paperly papers, wouldn't it?
