I’m trying to stay optimistic this season. It’s difficult but I am trying. Without sounding too Mr. Scrooge, I’m just not into Christmas this year. I haven’t even begun to take down fall decorations in exchange for the Christmas/winter ones. It’s a sickness I think. I’m stitching on a couple of gifties and I’m not working as diligently as I should. Not with anything. I did, however, have a job interview last Thursday at an entertainment law firm down on Music Row and was luckily called back for a second interview to which I had this morning. It went very well, but still no offer as of yet. They are still sorting through the second batch of applicants and will make a third cut by next week but I feel good about how things went today. I guess I’ll know something within a week or so. I just need to believe in myself a little more these days.


Cameron believed he could build these two towers, with a little bit of mom power backing him up, to which he did succeed. And maybe mama will be successful too if she believes a little more in herself. Thanks for stopping by…Talk soon!

Believe is so pretty! It's a great reminder. I know the holidays have been hard for a lot of people this year for numerous reasons.
I'm praying you find that perfect job and that your spirits will be lifted today!

I'm sending you good thoughts that you'll hear some good news about the job! And you're not the only one that seems to not be able to jump start Christmas. I just can't get into the mood this year. Tree is up, but that's about it.

Good luck on the job prospect Julie! Your finish is great, especially like your idea of using grommets (?) on corners, very neat, would have never thought of that myself:)
