Today, April 6th, 2015 at 3 PM, I’ll be interviewed by my friend Kelly Mitchell, founder of Agent Caffeine. No, Agent Caffeine is not the name of a detective who frequents coffee shops. In the words of Kelly, Agent Caffeine is the real estate industry’s #1 webcast and podcast for innovation, best practices and strategy.
Kelly and I have known each other through Twitter for a long time before we became real life friends. We probably started following each other when we were both selling real estate and I was new to Twitter in 2008. What really solidified our friendship was when Dale and I visited Hawaii in 2011. Kelly was there for us in a very difficult time and without hesitation, she stepped up to help us when our rental car was burglarized the day before we were going to fly home. That’s not what this post is about, but I just want to illustrate that if you’re fortunate to know Kelly & her husband Vince, you know that they are very giving, gracious, loving, helpful, wonderful, genuine people and I’m so thankful to know them!
I was so flattered when Kelly approached me a few months ago and said she’s love to have me on her show! The thought of it made me nervous, but also really honored and excited. I gave her a few different topic ideas and she went with Evernote. I love Evernote – it helps keep me and my thoughts organized! I love it so much, I’ve written a few classes about it and I’ve taught my Evernote classes close to 100 times. In my interview with Kelly, I barely scratch the surface with Evernote because there’s so much to say about it.
Around the time she asked me to be on her podcast / show, I made Kelly a housewarming gift I’ve had in the works (in my mind) for years, and I finally sent it to her. I plan to blog about it soon, but today’s post is about the card I made to accompany the gift:
I found the JPEG image of her logo and converted it to a cut file for my Cricut Explore machine. Then, I designed the card and attached part of the image to the card so that it cut the mic out of the little card I’d made.
Then, I cut the silhouette of Kelly and her hat from sparkly black cardstock and carefully adhered it to the front of the card, and added a small panel of sparkly red cardstock behind the mic.
