I Do Not "Heart" Mondays

Wow, it's been awhile! First, I would like to congratulate all of the finalists in the Inky Impressions DT call. There is some HUGE talent out there! I would not have wanted to be the one to narrow it down :) Secondly, I would like to say that I FINALLY finished my two circle journals that I have shamefully had for WAY TOO LONG and they will be headed to Oklahoma for a stop at Allie's house before they make it back to their rightful owners. When did I become such a procrastinator? They took me all of an hour and I stressed over not doing them for months, I MUST STOP DOING THAT kind of stuff to myself! and to the girls at Memorable Seasons, I am sorry for being such a slacker :) Please forgive me!

In real life, I found out that my department is being transferred to our corporate office which would mean a commute for me of anywhere between an hour to an hour and 45 minutes with traffic. After working at this company for nine years, it feels like my second home and I was devastated to get this news. So, it is time for me to start hunting for something else. I have a few ideas floating around in my head, I just have to digest it all! I just can't be that far away from my son and be away from him for that long every day. I already miss out on so much being a FT working mommy. So, we'll see what the future holds!

I have been working on a new line of cards for my Etsy shop, sassy adult humor is the theme with a cutesy twist to it :) Here is a sneak peek, I hope to have some uploaded in there within the next week.
Can anyone guess the theme of this card?!?! LOL!
Here are some other cards I made this weekend for my Etsy shop. I sold three of them right away to a loyal customer and friend :) who inspires me to keep it up when I am feeling "mojo-less" due to her wonderful compliments!!!

Thanks for stopping by. TGIt's not Monday for much longer :) I vote for a 2 day work week!

It's easy to be a loyal customer when you keep making such great stuff!

lol Love the cherry card! I think "adult" cards are some of the funniest things and you'll do good with those!

Also, sucks about your company! Maybe what you find will be so very much better than what you've got and it'll be a mixed up blessing (I'm going for that think positive!)

Hi!! WOW, what a wonderful blog you have here ☺ Thank you so much for stopping by and becoming a "follower" of my blog! I'm always excited to meet new people and make new friends :) I hear ya on the Mondays thing--I don't {heart} them either!! Sorry to hear about your job situation. My aunt has worked for a company in California for 44 years and they are now going out of business. I can't imagine! Many blessings as you find your next "niche" and find new ways of making some moula--although your Etsy shop sounds like it's taken off!! :) AWESOME!! i'm a newbie with Etsy and have had about 3 customers so far. Thanks again!!
