Quotes and sayings and things to remember!

Let me be upfront...I rarely can tell a joke, long, short, it doesn't matter.I am usually forgetting the punchline. There are sayings I love and never recall them to insert at the right time. And so many quotes that also escape me. My brother and mother have that gene....I was passed by!
I received a catolgue the other day with some pretty sarcastic and funny sayings on them. Do I remember any? Well, they're sitting right here so I can tell you some. These were all printed on signs or mugs or t-shirts.
This was written for me.... "The house was clean last week (sorry you missed it)."
And this one... "The voices in my head told me to buy more shoes"....uh huh!

Anyway, they all got me to thinking about putting these on some clocks like this one:

I make these clocks with the brilliant graphic mind of Judy from PortableGraffitiGraphics . She creates the design while I assemble the clock. It got me thinking that YOU may have a saying, a joke, a line you'd like immortalized on a clock and most probably Judy and I could do it. So drop me a note at AllAboutTheButtons or leave a comment here and together we can make time!!! Or maybe you feel like this clock!

Oh, and they don't have to be fresh or sassy or sarcastic! They can be anything that speaks to you!

Barbra, these are going to be HOT! As I know you sold some already with custom Zibbet shop logos. But any saying, mantra, words of wisdom, created by the buyer will be really fun.
I'm waiting for my assignments. I would love create a saying, graphic, anything a buyer's heart desires.
Together with Barbra we're gonna making you a clock you will LOVE!
We promise!
Judy

PS: Don't be shy, we'll put ANY words you want on your clock. We've heard it all before. ; )

As the saying goes....the shoemaker's kids have no shoes....the proofreader....always has misspellings in her posts.

These are great! I think you may have hit the jackpot on these. I'll have to give it some thought and shoot you some.

This probably wouldn't make sense on a clock, but I was on hold with Verizon yesterday for ten hours it seemed, but what I remember is the recorded voice of the computerized person prompting me to speak as "he" could "understand real sentences." Duh. How brilliant he must be.

Hey Barb, Here's a good quote. I bought a ring for my daughter with this quote and I swear she tries to live by it.- "Be the change you want to see in the world."-Gandhi -
You could do this for graduation clocks or inspirational type clocks. Just an idea.
