A new start

I am really excited to start the day.

I had a job interview on Wed. and was told as long as my pre-employment questionaire came out with approval I had a job. They told me that I should know by Friday evening.

Hubby came home last night and asked me 3 times if I had gotten my job and I told him not yet.
Then about 5-10 mins later I got the call that I would be starting my training today.

I am so excited.... after being without work for almost 2 years.
I just want to get out there and go go go! LOL

In the past week or two I have received the two prizes that I have won from the many OWOH drawings that I had entered. I am so happy with what I won.

First I won a dove mug coaster Carol Hansen's drawing on her blog.

The other prize I won was a beautiful green (oh man I love green lol) necklace from Amy Severino's blog. It is absolutely gorgeous and the picture just does not do it justice.

Thank you ladies for the wonderful prizes! I love them!

Sad news for the cross stitching world.....

Lisa Roswell, designer of The Primitive needle was taken from the cross stitch world, her family and friends in a tragic flood.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Lisa's family and friends during this very sad and very hard time. She will be missed so much.

May her family and friends find peace and comfort.

RIP Lisa!

A post by her daughter on Lisa's blog.
