I did it again!

Yep, I did it. I joined another swap. I enjoyed the Local Flavor Swap so much, I joined the next swap hosted by Chaotic Goddess:


This swap will be super easy. Once assigned a partner, contact them, get to know them a little bit, and send them a package with at least 5 items in their favorite color. Doesn't that sound like fun! It's just something different. I would love to swap handmade items, but currently, I don't have as much time for handmade as I would like. I'm getting to know new people through these swaps, and I am really enjoying that. Today is the last day to sign up for this, so go I encourage you, go check out the details.

Just a little update. I started my new job a couple of weeks ago. I am officially a Hospice Nurse. I'm making the long trek out to Terre Haute every day for training, but once I'm officially done with that, (in about a month), my territory will be my own local county. I'm super excited about this job, it was what I wanted to do when I finished school-and to be able to work local is a bonus! I think the hard part right now is finding a car that will be fuel efficient, and spacious enough to work out of every day. I've been driving hubby's Prius the past week, but he needs it back. I promised myself a new car when I finished school, and had my heart set on an SUV. Comparing the mileage in those, with the Prius, I just can't do it. Unlike me, hubby loves car shopping, so I've put him on the hunt.

I've got a Close To My Heart demonstration to do this afternoon with a group of local ladies. I was up last night preparing, working with paper, and hubby finally asked why I was so energetic at 10pm. I guess it just felt good to be in my craft area again. Before the weekend is over, I will post pictures of the scrapbook page they are making today, as well as the one my group made a couple of weeks ago, before I headed to Tennessee-hope you'll come back and visit again this weekend! Thanks for stopping by today, have a great day

    1. Thanks Patty! Haven't had time to photograph and post my pages yet, but since laundry and other chores were done tonight, maybe I can get to that tomorrow!

  3. Yay! Thanks for joining us for the swap- it should be tons of fun!
    And congrats on the job....I own an SUV, and get 22 miles to the gallon. Definitely not space-efficient (it's also 2-wheel drive, so really, it's only good for the storage space inside). I hope you get a good solution soon, but then it'll be nice not to have to worry about a long drive to work.

    1. Thanks Beth, I think this will be fun! I solved the car dilemma-told hubby trade my BMW for a car for him, I will wait to see what my job requires before I decide on a car for me! My job will require full travel to patient homes, so mileage will always be the biggest factor. My heart wants an SUV, my pocket book says keep the Prius if it will be spacious enough-time will tell!
