An update

Sorry, I know my posts are few and far between lately. Hopefully, we'll be able to settle in soon. Mike is here now. He starts his new position tomorrow. I still don't have a job. I interviewed last week at a fabulous Catholic school. I would be teaching 7th grade English and Social Studies and 6th grade English. I was really impressed with the principal and school. I should find out on Friday. I also applied for a position at Boise State University as a student advisor. Now it's just wait and see. We've been house hunting and have found a couple possibilities. I am so anxious to get our own place and have our own stuff back.

As for our house in CA, we've heard a few versions of what happened. No charges ended up being filed. Mike was able to get everything done and we turned it over to the property management company. Fingers crossed we get good renters soon.

In the meantime, here's a few cards I've managed to create. When I got here, my new Sweet N Sassy stamps were waiting for me and I had to play with Olivia. I just love her! The papers are from a retro mat stack I have. It was a thank you card for my friend Brandy who threw me a fabulous goodbye party before I left.

This one was for my friend Cyndie. She and her husband and kids helped us load up the PODS before we moved. The stamps are CTMH's July SOTM and Sarsaparilla papers.

Finally, another card using the mat stack.

I made a few other birthday and father's day cards I'll try to take pictures and show you all. One I made for my mom uses SEI's gorgeous new Poppy papers. Anyway, I'll try to be better at keeping up the blog--I've missed doing it lately.

Heya Nic!

I am glad to hear(read) that your house suffered minimal damage. What a lousy thing for that girl to do! UGH! I hope you have good luck this month house and job hunting!

Darling cards!!! I can't wait to be able to play again! I understand what it's like to live with family and be out of your "zone".... hopefully that fixes itself soon for you guys!
