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!
