Checking In

Yes, I realize it's usually the reader who "checks in" and not, the blogger, but this is what it is today.  I apologize for not being around much lately.  I figure it's time to let you in on a little...well big change that has occurred in my life in the past 2 weeks.  I've gone back to work part time.  It is actually really part time only 3 days a week for 4 hours, but it is exactly a great fit for me, for my family.  A huge blessing from the Lord.  We've known for sometime that I would need to  go back to work part time, but it seemed almost impossible with the hours that I am available.  I've prayed that the Lord would be very clear in what I am suppose to be doing with my life right now.  We need the extra funds, but at the same time I need to be here to drop off and pick up the girls from school, and get them to dance.  It seemed impossible for anything to fit within those times.  Then Signature Cleaning services posted a ad for a part time office admin assistant.  The hours?  Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:30-1:30.  Late enough that I can drop the girls off in the morning, and early enough that I can pick them up from school.  I'm enjoying the job, and all the duties it entails, and really enjoy working for Joanna.  She has a very high standard of excellence for herself and her company, and loves processes that garner efficiency, and is constantly looking for better ways to measure the success of the company.  Most importantly she has a tender heart for the girls who work for her.

The fact that my most creative time has typically been between 11 am and 2 pm, being away during this time does cause a lull here on the blog.  I am all caught up on dt projects, and have several layouts complete and ready to share with you.  Just waiting for my posting dates at the various blogs to come around.  In the meantime how about a few sneaks?

First let me share a couple of complete layout I created for A Flair For Buttons recently.
Based of this sketch by Citrus Twist

The "lucky" cut file is by Kerri Bradford

And here are just a couple of sneaks of some upcoming projects.

This one will be up on Sunday with the Chic Tags November Kit feature

Another Chic Tags layout coming up next week

A Scraptastic Club layout coming up soon

Another Scraptastic Layout that I can't wait to share

I also have 2 Moments In Between Layouts to share, but they've not been photographed yet.

Hopefully the sneaks will tie you over for a few days.  Thank you for sticking with me.  Hoping to find my rhythm of working during my usual crafty time soon.  On another note, I am really looking forward to our weekend road trip with Théa.  Just the 3 of us, as we take her to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to attend the Triple Threat Dance Convention.  The other 2 will get to hang out with Ma & Pa for the weekend.

Thanks bunches for stopping by today, I'll be back on Sunday with that Chic Tags post.

Congrats on the new job! I know what you mean by it is hard to find something to fit in those hours. That is pretty much what I need to and haven't been able to find anything. Tax season is coming around in January. I will be back cooking meals for them, but that only lasts until late April.

Your projects are so pretty, as always.
