I am employed....
LOL. It sounds so funny. My cousin was kidding me today when I said I couldn't come to a party she was having this weekend because "I was working", she said I just like hearing myself say it!! {shh...it's a little true} You know what they say about the SAHM thing....ie. losing your identity, chosing the shirt to wear in the morning with the least amount of stains on it. Can you connect with me?? Like I have told you before.....my last job was making sure I looked pretty and my makeup was perfect, it really felt good to get ready for work. I wore heels and pantyhose. Although this job is a little less casual, it feels really goooooddddd! I met some really nice ladies that were all pretty much happy, chose to be in my class, and seemed to have a good time. I have been working really hard on the upcoming classes I have scheduled. {see the slideshow on the left} The one thing that I have found the hardest is bringing it down a few hundred notches to the "basics". I have gone back through the boxes of cards I have made through the years and looked at some of the cards I made in the beginning. The simpler cards are pretty....and I was glad to see them again. Watercoloring is no doubt my favorite thing to do in the whole card making thing. Sometimes I amaze myself. Let me know what you think of the samples.
I also got some new rubber this week from the to die for Stampin Up! Catalog. Quite pretty I must say!! Its always nice to get new rubber!!! I was actually thrilled about the die cut aspect of many of the sets because of my time contraints. I thought I would be disappointed. Change is good.
We went to Indian Ranch for the last time this season on Sunday. We saw Chris Young, {21 years young!!} and Keith Anderson. Both were amazing and the kids were able to get their autographs. I love this place because it is so small and you really feel like the artist knows you are there. We hope to make a few shows next year.
Hope this finds you all well!
