Here are a couple of cards that I made a little bit ago. I have been busy getting 70 invitations out the door for my Mom's 80th birthday. Have to make the party favor boxes and then design a baby shower invite for my niece. Plus there is a craft fair looming in September.

Good News / Bad News

Yesterday at lunch my co-worker in the acctg department told me that she is quitting. Her last day will be Friday, August 28th. Of course I am very happy for her. She is going to work for the Chicago Public Schools for about the same amount of money she was making before we all had to take a pay cut. She will also get a pension and better benefits. She will also work the same schedule that the teachers work, so that means summers off and two weeks at Christmas...

I am a bit freaked out because I was supposed to take a week of vacation in September and it looks like I may have to cancel since no one else knows how to do any of the acctg work. On the upside for me, in exchange for the additional work that will be dumped on me, I am going to ask for more money. Wish me luck!!!

Little Red Corvette

Well I did my first and probably last outdoor craft fair this past weekend. Saturday was miserable and it rained for most of the day. I think there was about 3 hours of no rain. Sunday was beautiful but the people just weren't buying. I didn't even make enough money to cover my space. The whole set up and take down was too much too since we couldn't bring our cars back into the area each night until after 10pm and I wasn't able to stay that late so I had to traipse my stuff in multiple trips. Right now I think I'll stick to the indoor fairs.
