Workin' For A Livin'

"I'm taking what they giving 'cause I'm working for a livin'." ~ Hewey Lewis & The News

That's right, I'm officially a working woman again :o) I did get the job that I was interviewed for and I started last Tuesday. I didn't want to say anything because it was a trial period and I wasn't sure if I'd last or not. It's a good thing that I didn't because there has been a new development! I can't share what it is yet because I don't know 100% what's happening. Let me just say this, I'm still going to be working for the same company but in a different position and have part-time hours. I can't tell you how super excited I am about it :o)

On top of that, I had to get my photography order ready for the new gallery that's going to be carrying my work. I have thirty pictures in my collection and I did up 30 5 x 7s and 30 8 x 10s. It takes quite a bit of time to do the packaging. I should have taken a picture while the kitchen table was covered but I didn't get around to it. So here is the result of all my work -

Quite professional looking, huh? :o) My next step is to set up a shop online but I'm not sure when that will be. My pictures are for sale though and if you are interested in seeing the collection please email me and I'll send you out an invitation to view them. I'm asking $8 CDN for the 5 x 7s and $15 CDN for the 8 x 10s. I do take Pay Pal so if you see something you like, plmk ;o)

With things so up in the air and hectic here, stitching has taken a backseat and I've really missed it. I do have a progress picture of Sabrina for you though -

Photobucket

It may not look much different from the last photo but if you look 'really' hard, you'll see that I've completed all the beading :o) I definitely think I'm going to be beaded out after this.

I've finally put her into a bigger Q-Snap size and was horrified to see some kind of spot on the fabric :o( I have NO idea what it is. It almost looks like it was slightly bleached. My fingers and toes are crossed that the back part of her dress will go over far enough to cover it up!

Want to see something cute? If you're not a Follower and haven't heard the news yet, head on over to Katie's Blog. She has a new bundle of joy that she'd like to introduce :o)

Congrats on your new job! I can't wait to hear what's next. Yep, stitching and jobs don't get along so well, unless it's my job owning a cross stitch store :) We do have stitch day all day Tuesdays and Tuesday nights. I'll have to post a progress report on my blog after this coming Tuesday.
