WOW!!!! Finally a good week!

I finally have some good news on my end.

Check out the wonderful gifts I received from the Pay It Forwards I was involved in. Aren't they great?!!!

The pink "Mail Art" envelope on the top left is from Dawn. It arrived in a clear envelope and has my address and her return address stitched on it. How cool!

The chocolate (YUM!) and fabric and threads are from Melanie. She dyed the fabric and threads herself! Isn't that awesome? She sells the threads on her website. Check it out. I already have 2 small projects picked out for 2 of the threads. Will definitely have to find something wonderful for the fabric. I need to go search through my stash!

In other good news...

I received a job offer this week from a small accounting business owned by a friend. The pay isn't any better than where I'm at, but it works with my schedule and the pay is guaranteed. That's been one of the main problems I have had with the job I am currently at. My hours were cut drastically in December and have not been consistent since. One week it will be 18 hours, one 12, etc. I started out with 26 hours per week. Not to mention that about a month ago we didn't get a paycheck on payday. It was a week late. The next time we got paid she told us to "hold" the check until she told us it was OK. I can't handle that. I need to know when I'm getting paid, that the paycheck is good and that it is consistent. The only bad part...the job doesn't start until mid summer and I will have to stay where I am (if the business lasts that long) until mid May. But, at least I have something to look forward to.'s great to finally have a good week and some good news in this new year. As for my stitching...I'm still working on my train. It's coming along pretty nicely. It would be wonderful if I could finish it by the time I left my current job. Maybe I can. :-) Wouldn't that be great?!!!

Here are my latest movie reviews:

  • Bridge to Terabithia - good family movie
  • Ghost Rider - enjoyable if you like fantasy, comic book stuff, somewhat scary scenes
  • Music & Lyrics - Good. I really enjoyed this romantic comedy quite a bit
  • Catch and Release - AWFUL!!!!!!!
  • We Are Marshall - good family movie
  • Night at the Museum - good family movie
  • The Pursuit of Happiness - Very good
