waiting by the phone

So I was laid off from my job almost three weeks ago. As uncomfortable as it is to be subsisting on less than half of what our household income used to be (and trust me, it was never anything to write home about), the joy of not having to deal with that job anymore is totally worth it. I think I may have clinched a new job today, a perfect one, so I'm crossing my fingers for that phone call tomorrow. If you wanted to pray for that with me, I certainly would appreciate it.

In more creative news, I've been wanting to make some changes to some old clothes that aren't giving me the kick they used to. So I hit up the fabric store during their holiday sale on Monday and took my trusty needle and thread to some old tops. Here are the results:



I'm pretty pleased, what do you think?

So darling. Verrry well done. You should make those things but make them with little safety pins on them and them sell them so girls can purchase them and place them on different shirts of their choice. Could start an account on Etsy or something and sell them... post some of your pictures. :) There's your next business.

Very lovely. You do so many marketable things. Maybe your new job will give you some business ideas.
