Beware of the Ides of March... and other ramblings...

Today is the day... the Ides of March. I'm not sure if it's ironic or coincidal that today is also my last day with First Horizon Home Loan Corporation. I'm a bit meloncholy about the whole thing. I understand the business decision behind the plan. I've felt it coming for quite some time, and had often commented to friends that something had to change. Alas, something changed and my department is being omitted. Well, the term everyone else is using would be "decentralizing". Our business is being moved to another division who is able to handle our business with theirs - without much extra overhead.

I have interviews lined up. I'm really excited at the possibilities. I know the Lord will provide, if I work at finding a job. A job isn't going to just land in my lap - at least not THE job. THE job that will be THE best job for me. I'll keep looking until I find it.

Lots of fun things on the horizon though. EBay seems to be fruitful, at least so far. My customers have been paying quickly, and fortunately shipping has been equally as fast!

My studio is getting a much needed spring cleaning. What's spurring this tidy fest? I'm not sure! I'm eager to get things organized and tidied up. I have SO much and I can't possibly use it all. FOrtunately, on March 25th I'll have two tables at the Scrapbook Warehouse garage sale. It's going to be a great opportunity for me to clean out my extra's and for someone else to get a fabulous deal. I won't be getting cash for the exchange, but I will be receiving store credit - which means I am getting closer to purchasing the WishBlade! Wahoo! I'm excited to see if the products I treasure will be loved by other scrapbookers. It's a shame that I can't use it all. Honestly, I have enough for a small army. I can't fit a small army in my house - or in my studio. So, it has to go.

After much deliberation, I'm also going to be painting the bathrooms! I'm SO excited about it! I know it's a small change, but a small change is better than nothing! Both bathrooms are going to be a light tanny brown with white/cream accents. We're still trying to decide what color to paint the main parts of the house (living room/kitchen/hallways). They all flow into eachother, so the same color needs to be used in all three. We'll wait to paint the main parts until I'm gainfully employed, but in the meantime, the bathrooms will be beautiful!

I'm looking forward to spring coming! Flip flop season is RIGHT around the corner! WAHOO! The weather here has been CRAZY. 20 degrees one day and 90 the next. It's no wonder that people are getting sick. Fortunatley, I've been spared - so far! :) I can't wait to get the front flower garden all gussied up. Steve isn't looking forward to it as much as I am, but oh well. A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do, right? :) Beware.... The backyard is next!

Other than that, not a whole lot going on. I did a few ATC's and you can see them in my ATC gallery on the right. I have a few more to get done, and then I'll be clear of deadlines. I have a stack to catch up on from my PeaJect friends - they're SO creative! I love seeing their work.

I'm kind of toying with the idea of entering the Memory Makers Masters contest. It's a contest similar to Creating Keepsakes Hall of Fame. It's just through another magazine. I know that the MM offices are being relocated to Cincinnati, so it's possible that the contest won't even be happening. But, it's something to think about!

I am so missing you at work! I spent the entire day cleaning out desks and organizing supplies. Stacks and stacks more supplies then you saw yesterday! I will be having a "garage sale" tomorrow with the other EA's and admins. O, and like you, I quit putting off going to the dentist for the final piece of work ~ just in case!
