Today at work, I was shamelessly showing off my crafts to a new employee when the birthday card I made someone was no longer hanging at their desk. I looked around assuming it had fallen or been moved. It was nowhere to be found. Later I found out the person had thrown it out!! Now, don't get me wrong, I didn't slave over this card and the individual in question and I aren't biffles, but come on now, how ya' gonna do me like that??
To make a long story short, I didn't make a big deal out of it but I was definitely offended. Like, at least lie and say you took it home, or blame it on the cleaning crew, something...anything. Needless to say, that is the last time I waste my crafting on them.
But my question for you is, would you ever throw something away that someone made you. I can understand if someone just bought you a whatever card from Wal-Mart, ya I probably wouldn't keep that either. But something that involved scrapbooking paper and stamps and had everyones little bday messages in it? Would you just pitch it like yesterdays half a tuna sandwich? (I hate tuna p.s.)
I personally would not. Maybe because I know the effort people put into things they make and when someone gives you something homemade it is to make you feel special and appreciated. But I don't know, maybe it's just me....
