Quick Post of Some Amazing Songs

I met this amazing lady a couple of years ago when a dear friend of hers did a concert here in Calgary.  The quality isn't the best as she has just found these copies of older recordings, that she thought had been lost.  But the songs are so amazing and truly a wonderful performer.

Off to bed so I can be ready to get all the stock out at work tomorrow.  After my lay off in May from my office job, I found a new job back in retail.  But since I love arts and crafts the place I work is awesome, Michaels! And it's Christmas already in our store and I actually love it!! Got to fill up the baking grids today and the gingerbread house stuff, and sooo many Christmas ornaments and flowers.

Have a great Monday everyone!!

Away for too long, but back now.

I can't believe how fast time has flown and how little time I have for the things I love since starting my new job in June.  Since I start work so early in the day I am calling it a night around the same time my two year old niece goes to bed...LOL But 3:30am comes very very early.

I have recently been doing some blog hops and gettting all kinds of amazing inspiration and ideas for cards and Christmas ideas.  Time to be back to blogging and making some time for the creative fun things that I've let slip over the last few months.

Can't wait to start being involved in things and challenges and Pink Saturday and I'm sure numerous other new blogs and ideas as well.  Hope you all had a safe and happy Halloween and that November has started well for everyone!!

Today's pink is the pink on some of my favorite things.....purses and flip flops :)

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and hopefully yours will be filled with sunshine, laughter and creativity <3

Another Week Begins

Happy Monday everyone.

So my second week of being unemployed has begun.  I was laid off just over a week ago from a job that I had been working my butt off at for 3 years, and then totally blindsided by it, I was laid off.

Have been applying for jobs since last week, but no call backs yet.  I am trying to stay positive, but in this economy I'm just not sure how long I keep it up. But I have been using some of my new found "spare" time to make some cards and to re-organize my art and craft supplies.  I am hoping to post pics to this blog of some of the things I have made over the years for people to see and comment on.  I started out making cards, have now dabbled a bit in the scrapbooking arena (but I do have ALL the supplies and then some) and have always wanted to try out collage on large surfaces and also try out the digital medium.

Hopefully using some of my time to be creative and relax will help keep the positve attitude going while I try to find a new job.

Hope you are all having a great start to your week :)
