Work and Stuff

Well, I have some news. I have a job. It's not THE JOB that I really wanted....the one I interviewed a week ago for. BUT is a job. I will be working for a company called Level One. The job is working in their call center....er....Central Leasing Office answering incoming phone calls about apartments and such. The thing I'm not too fond of is that the hours are second shift and I'm required to work one weekend day a week. That means that I have to work every Saturday so I can go to church on Sundays. PLUS there isn't really much of a chance that I'll even have 2 days off in a row. BUT it's the job the Lord provided for me. When I talked to the recruiter, he said that you can eventually work up to being able to have first shift hours....so that's a bonus. And, he and I talked about career opporunities with the company, outside of the call center. There seem to be quite a few. So in all, I'm starting to get a little excited about the job. It's always fun to learn new things, right??? Oh -- I start Monday.

I also had a Stampin' Up! workshop last night. It went really well, and even though there were only 3 guests, the hostess got some nice stuff. Here are the projects we made:


This is just a cute little spiral notebook....the kind you get at Wal-Mart 4/$1, but they are so fun to alter, and I really love the way it turned out!!

The best way to make these is to unwind the spiral and take the notebook apart. Then, after you finish your design, use a small circle punch (we used 1/8") to punch the holese for the spiral to go back in and re-wind the spiral.

Supplies:
Stamps - A Beautiful Thing
Cardstock - Groovy Guava, Blue Bayou, Whisper White
Ink - Groovy Guava, Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi
Accessories - Groovy Guava Double-Stitched Ribbon, Brads
Punches - Circle Scallop, 1 1/4 and 1 3/4 Circle, Round Tab



The other project we made is this card. Isn't it fun?? I fell in love with this stamp set when the new catty came out, so I'm really happy to have it now. ACTUALLY, I traded for this set...so I didn't even spend any money to get it.

Supplies
Stamps - The Free and the Brave
Cardstock - Soft Sky, Purley Pomegranate, Blue Bayou
Ink - Blue Bayou
Embelishments - Soft Sky Double Stitched Ribbon



This project is what I gave the hostess of the workshop as a thank you. It is a 4x4 magnet that came with my phone book. I think there was a roto-rooter ad or something on it. Doesn't it look MUCH better with pretty ribbon and sparkes??

Supplies
Stamps - Bugs and Kisses
Cardstock - Soft Sky, Purely Pomegranate
Ink - Purely Pomegranate
Embelishments - Purely Pomegranate Double Stitched Ribbon, Dazzeling Diamonds (glitter)



And here are some other projects that I've made. You can find details for these cards on my Splitcoast Stampers gallery HERE.
