I get to say it: I. Got. A. Job! It's not much- just a waitress position at a new local comedy club, but I'm still so grateful to have a job. Plus, I have three years of waitress experience already, so it'll be (hopefully) an easy transition. I'm actually working with one of my old co-workers from Applebee's. He got me the job. (Thanks, Matt!) You gotta love having connections. :) I start tomorrow evening, so wish me luck! To celebrate properly, I thought I'd do a GIVEAWAY. I'll post it tomorrow after I figure out everything that I'm giving away. Trust me, you're not going to want to miss this.
I made a couple things over the last 24 hours, and I'd like to share them with you. First, here's my card for the Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #9. (I was also inspired by this post by Shimelle to use green- I kind of ran with it. Ha.)
Using the colors:
Supplies: Cardstock- Archivers (light green), American Crafts (darker green), and Unknown (The Paper Studio), Patterned Paper- October Afternoon, Foam Stickers- American Crafts, Stamps- Hero Arts (houndstooth, cupcake, "eat your cupcake", and frogs), Studio G (damask), and Imaginisce (panda), Butterfly Punch- EK Success, Black Ink- StazOn by Tsukineko and Chalk Ink by Colorbox, Embossing ink and powder- Ranger.
Then I made an apron! I've been wanting to for a while, and yesterday I picked up a yard of fabric from walmart and some trim and went to town. The supplies for this litterally cost me less than 5 dollars. I'd say that's a bargain. Here's the free pattern that I used (it's Austrailian so I had to do some converstions, but I just estimated and it turned out all right). For the most part, though, I just used it for the basics to get the right shape and then wung it from there. It was a lot of fun. I'm hoping to make three more of these so that me and my three roommates will all have "ours" hanging in our kitchen in September. :)
The finished piece on me:
I'm in love with it!
Now, here's a shout out to the wonderful girls at Use Your Stash as well as Kim Faucher (her etsy store is here). Thanks for this adorable prize I won as part of the anniversary month celebration. :) I can't wait to use everything!
Oh and last but not least- this corner rounder by Fiskars is fantastic. i picked it up today with a 50% off coupon and JoAnn's, and it cuts like buttah, baby! Wayyy better than my one from HL. :)
Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to come back tomorrow for the "I Got a Job Giveaway"!
