Cutesy Valentine!

A big high to all my fellow crafters!

I hope you've all had a wonderful week so far!  My week has been full of ups and down... and it's only Tuesday!  I am currently a full time stay at home mom and crafter.  Really, who can think of a better way to spend your time.  On Sunday my mother in law gave me a not so subtle hint that it's time for me to go back to work and even pointed out a job ad in the paper.  I know she means well.  So on Monday I phoned the company in the job ad, got an interview an hour later, and they said they'll let me know on Wednesday.  The guy I had the interview with was very positive and said I will most likely get the job, as my experience is exactly what he's looking for.  So,  ......  Now I wait.  My DH said should I get the job, I can use my whole salary for my craft stuff.  Isn't he a darling!  I think it's more of, now he'll have more spending money, 'cause I won't be depleting our funds with ribbons, and paper, and.... agggh, you guys know the drill!  

And should I not get the job, which I still don't know if I want,  I still get to do what I did today.  Making cards, and smelling my paper!  Don't you guys just love the smell of your papers!!!!  Yes, I know, it still smell like paper, but still!!  And should you be reading this and think, this girl's weird,  I'm not the only one.  Last year I gave a scrapbook class to a couple of girls.  A friend of mine's daughter who is 14 took the cream puff bazzill cardstock and smelled it too.  When she saw me looking at her, she blushed and started blabbering.  I just laughed and told her I do it too!  The paper just looks so Delicious!

Challenge Time

Hi Crafters!

Well, we've finally moved and kind of sorted our stuff.  When I mean kind of sorted our stuff, I mean... : We have no closets in the house, so currently 1 of our beds are a make shift closet.  It's actually quite horrendous.  We've moved into a very big farm house.  My in laws also lives in the house.  We are going to divide the house, we have our own yard, and so do they.  So currently we are still sharing a kitchen, we are using a bathroom on their side....  Our bathroom is being build as we speak, and then we are going to build the closets, then the kitchen....  AND THEN ... we are going to build on 3 more rooms, 1 a tv room for the adults as we don't like watching cartoons with the kids the whole time, 1 an extra bathroom, and then my Scrap room.  And financially speaking, this is going to take a long time.  We have planned everything, and have some very nice ideas, but with nice ideas comes nice prices as well!  So in the mean time, I have a make shift scrapbook room in our would be kitchen.  This house has huge potential, so I just keep reminding myself of that to keep sane....

On to the challenges!
