My adorable Nephew

videoHad to share this video of the most adorable baby in the world. My nephew is such a lil doll. Also more news on the new job. Things are coming together quickly and I will be back working in March it looks like. It will still take some time to get office space, set up, get licensed with DBPR and alot more. But each day we are one step closer. Im so excited!! Im going to Minnesota for 3 days in 2 wks to see how they run the office there, get an idea of the programs and so forth. Im such a Florida girl I cant imagine all the snow and cold weather I will be getting into there. But should be a adventure. I will share more as I can.

I passed...im offical

Glad I took the refresher course it really made a difference today. I felt like I may have missed 5-10 max on the entire exam. So yeah!!!
Ive been crafting like crazy several new lo's, flowers, and even a valentine decoration or two. I must say with the stress of the new job coming up and getting the licenses I need to do my job its been nice to put it all aside and Craft-just make my version of ART. Pics to come.
The partners are coming to town late next week to find us and Office space. Then once we get leases in order we can get furniture and equipment so we are rolling by March 1. I will be going to Minnasota for 3 or 4 days to see how the office works there so this one can be set up the same. Get a handle on the systems they use and so on. Very excited about the whole process....

2011 Crafty start

I must say ive been very productive so far in 2011. Several pages done, xmas minibook, and flowers made. I did finaaly break down and order some flowers from iamroses.com. Can hardly wait to get them and share. They are much much cheaper than Prima even with shipping from the UK. I will share more soon on that and my new pages.
Studing for my Real Estate exam which is next Friday....so no time to craft for the next week at least. Also on the job hunt ive had a second interview arranged for tomorrow with the company I would love to work for. This job offers alot of advancement. Fingers crossed.

Happy crafting

Art Festival

We went to the Art festival today. It was held in downtown and they blocked off about 6 blocks, food vendors, the whole nine yards. Although there were so many amazing painting,photos,pottery and jewelry it was soooooo expensive. I found 2 things I loved a photo put on 3 canvas pieces of the local pier at sunset but it was 500.00 and a ring made of silver and a mystic fire topez that had the most amazing shape that was 260.00. So needless to say we walked, enjoyed the sights, ans left the same as most I would suspect. I guess I need to stick to the Arts and Craft venues!! more my price range. LOL

Bring on 2011

Well another year has come and gone.....2010 brought so many challenges in our family I am kind of glad it has come to an end. I will say we have learned alot from it and been able to wade through it and try to see the good or lesson from each one.
Soooooo 2011 please bring our family and Friends a Healthy, Happy, and Prosperous New Year.!!! Not sure some of us can handle another year like the last and I know my family isnt the only one. I pray the lord gives us each new found strentgh to overcome any struggle or challenge. I pray for inner guidance for myself to find what im looking for. To reach my goals and never stop reaching for more this year.
Love to all!!!
