“Life Happens. Coffee Helps.”
This bag of  beans wasn’t always busted open. Oh no.  It’s wasn’t. I finished up my projects using the Stampin’ Up! Coffee Café stamp set and co-ordinating Coffee Cups Framelits die…. … I laid them on the dining counter ready to photograph the next day when the sun rose. And then I saw this…ARGH!Clear bag of coffee beans that have spilled all over the floor along side someones feet. My son Jack thought the beans were raisins and had been fiddling around to open the bag. What’s the strangest thing is that he doesn’t like raisins.  He picks them out of the trail mix packages from Costco. But that’s when I noticed the tag.
“Life Happens. Coffee Helps.”
Exactly. This is it.  Life happens.

Coffee is important to me.  I crave it. I drink it black and I like it super hot.  I don’t re-heat because it never tastes right after that.  I like to drink it in a medium sizes mug at home.  Usually a pottery mug or a mug big enough so that I can almost get my hands around it.  I like to drink mine in a paper cup when on the go.  I prance around with it guarding it as if its my life line. Don’t let a drop fall.  I look forward to the mornings when I am the first to get up – I grab a cup and set outside on the patio just for a moment.  Just enough to breath and begin the day.

This stamp set by Stampin’ Up! was created for the coffee lovers.  You shouldn’t have to work hard to create a meaningful project.  While I was creating, I made a thank you tag to go with the Starbucks gift card I purchased for the bus driver.
