Advent Swap and Jewelry give away

This year I joined Fiona's advent swap. I think it will be fun collecting little doodads to brighten someone else's Christmas Holiday.

I have posted the link to the swap on the sidebar.

I also found a jewelry site that you can enter to win. The jewelry is beautiful. I have also posted a link to that site on my sidebar as well.

Well I survived the second week at work. I am still a little unsure of some of the operating procedures but I am not quite so nervous this week. I think the ambulances outside the door (they park at the building) are a little intimidating. Everytime I go out for a smoke (yes I know I do have to quit, just waiting for a little reprieve in the business) I know they are watching me and thinking....our next victim. A little sick I know, I think I am just reliving my ambulance ride 3 years ago from the car accident. I guess I just have to learn to relax.

Speaking of relaxing, I took the weekend off to work on my dad's books. Say lots of prayers the paperwork I wanted to look at is not in the box from the accountant.

I hope to make a big dent in Dad's books as well as taking a little time to relax and maybe clean and sew.

Have a great weekend and God Bless all of You!!!!! :)

Survived the first week

Well I survived the first week of work. I am still a bit confused on some things, I think time will tell. So far I have 4 people registered for tax school. I just have to get the office procedures down pat.

The nice thing about this job is that I will have some weekends off. I am so excited. This week I will work on my dad's books and play with my new embroidery machine.

The cleaning is really going to take some time, but.....I did have Steph take some very embarrassing (2 - 3 jobs for 5 years) photo's so I will have some wonderful before and after pictures to show at a later date. You ask how can I let my house get so bad. Well....being out of town or working in town on weekends as well as a regular job, there is no time to clean or sleep a lot. As well as a car accident 3 years ago did not help my energy levels.

I am starting a new diet and work out program in the next couple of weeks. I have gained around 30lbs with each car accident so I have around 60 lbs to lose. What a challenge. I am planning on working on the first 10 and then do it in increments of 10. I really don't want to get discouraged. Wish me luck. :)

I let my son take the camera to Wyoming for his visit with his dad. I hope he brings some pic home of the grand babies (even though he is 11). :)

Have a great tomorrow and God Bless all of YOU!!!!

Long time no blog

Seems it has been a long time since I have blogged. I have pic of my christmas in July gift from Cleary
I have 3 finishes (3 necklaces)
I saw an angel in the clouds.
It has been a busy month with all the county fairs I have worked. Maybe I over did it a little as the first week I start my new job I get the flu. Oh well. I am feeling better, am finally not having the queasies. I have one more finish that I will report later in the month. It is the candlewicking table cloth and is really turning out to be very pretty.
I am looking forward to taking a break from the craft fairs. I will drop down to mostly one day shows. WHICH MEANS!!! I will maybe have a little time to use my new sewing machine I bought off of Craigs List. It is a Viking Designer 1 embroidery machine. The lady was so nice and threw in 180 rolls of embroidery thread. I have aleady made a sample red and pink strawberry and helped mom make a butterfly on a dish towel.
Well have a great day and God Bless all of YOU!!!!!
