Day 2 of What is your SUPERPOWER...revealed here with DMC

Welcome to our NEXT hop....SUPERPOWERS WILL BE revealed...get a pencil or pen out and begin a list....You may want to refer to these SUPERPOWERS again...reminding us all that everything is POSSIBLE...

Realllllly who has not put on a list at least a couple SUPERPOWERS they wish they had? I know when I was knee deep in my career, we had a session where our SUPERPOWERS were revealed....

Can you imagine, a team from all over the world....I prided myself in head hunting TALENT, always serious, as we were in Big PHARMA....but there were times when we PLAYED... The task was to be that SUPERPOWER you wish you had... for the whole session, which lasted 8 hours...

Ohhh Izzie. ( her name was Izabel)  her Superpower was to remember everything that was said during those 8 hours...She knew shorthand...( none of us knew that until then) Even in those days, shorthand was sooooo 50-60's. I knew no one who still did it...But Izzie did and she had many pads, and she wrote everything about our day...She was pretty remarkable...She was able to capture moments many had simply forgotten as there was so much going on...

And there was Randy, oh he was so together until this session, his Superpower was an  insatiable appetite...for 8 hours he never stopped snacking, sipping, munching and chewing.... He had a suitcase yes a suitcase of snacks..some healthy, many were not...He shared with us later, he had to fast for 2 days as he managed to consume thousands upon thousands more calories than he usually did...

Ohhhh how I wish had those SUPERPOWERS!

You can be sure I will be adding a NEW list of SUPERPOWERS once you
all reveal yours...

  1. Oh Samm! I truly believe your superpowers are immeasurable and the list would be forever-long!! I took shorthand in high school and wished I still had the power to read it after all these years :) Thank you so much, again, for all you do and all you share! You are super kind, super smart, and super important :)

  2. I 2nd everything that Wendy said! Also another day of super duper super powers!

  3. In my day, I learned a different type of shorthand...remove all vowels as you write, and omit double letters, use f for ph, and the like...certainly makes deciphering easier! I still use it day to day. Day 2 has revealed more SUPER people with some very amazing SUPERPOWERS. Woo hoo, bring on Day 3, I'm pumped!

  4. Just finished hopping around this morning to see what everyone's super powers are ! Totally terrific morning!

  5. I'm going to date myself as I can read the shorthand. For those who are wondering what it says, "Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good Night."

  6. I just had trouble loading your page, this was my 4th time, maybe it timed out.... anyways lovely items

  7. Great choices for today. There were some fun ideas.

  8. Oh my goodness! Today was fabulous!

  9. What fun this morning! Great projects!

  10. Yes, Gigi is the name my daughters gave me...and I do love being one SO MUCH!
    I loved all the projects today!!!!

  11. This is such a fun hop! I'm so enjoying seeing what everyone's "superpower" is. Great choice for today! :)

  12. Fun Superpowers again today! Since you don't eat chocolate, throw it my way, LOL!

  13. Oh the superpowers we possess! And some grand ones at that. I'm not a chocolate lover either. Judy B you can have mine too!

  14. Oh I wish I didn't like chocolate that much. I love ANYTHING chocolate. Great projects from all involved today.

  15. SuperPower Fun! I am so enamored with your little image of the "Relish Each Moment" girl. Uber cute! Thank you for another inspiring Hop Dear...

  16. Two things: one, I finished my "Go Team" flag/banner and posted about it on my blog; two, I think I've figured out my Superpower, I'm a GEM! John and I had a nice discussion about it, I'm multi-faceted, sparkly, unique, and have powers inside me few can get out of me. Since I'm not in this hop, I thought I'd share that with you, thank you so much for inspiring a thoughtful conversation Mdm Samm!

  17. I am loving the artwork on the posts---and that includes the day's picks. What fun this is! I missed seeing the signup for the picnic quilt till just now. Let me ponder the criteria a bit before committing!

    1. ohhh how sweet of you to say..but it most certainly a collaborative effort


You think they are just words...they are sew much more than that...your wee messages tell me, you are kind, smart and important...
