My Claim To Fame

I actually thought that my last day at work before the Chrisy break would be easy. Must have been kidding myself. From arriving at 8.15am to 3pm I was non-stop. Almost everyone had left at between 12 and 1pm for the Chrissy party. Good job I didn't want to go.

Well the Chrissy spirit was not in me, after a bitchy comment and noticed whispers my day was spent totally depressed. I even spent 5 minutes to have a little cry. I couldn't get out of this feeling all day.

9.00pm came and I decided to relax with my hub with my Australian Beading magazine. I have had it sitting around for a while now and hadn't had the chance to read it. Well I just got to page 16 and it made my day. I was so excited, even hub was pleased for me. I had a 2nd look and yep it was my creation. I had sent photos in to them months ago and never heard anything and to just turn a page and there is my "vampires mistress" bracelet and earrings. How cool is that!
After a poopy day Australian Beading magazine Vol 2 No 6 made my day. Thank you very much.

Congrats and sorry your day started bad, but glad you had good news. I know how it can get at Christmas time with everything going on. My s-i-l got 90,000.00 and out of that we got a LOAN of 300.00-unbelievable, huh? They say they had too much debt in their early twenties. Oh, well, we're thankful for that, but still...

Congratulations on your sale! That is a beautiful set. There's a local beader who's selling her stuff at our mall now. In fact I bought a couple of her dangly earrings last week. I like dangly ones better than hoops.

Happy New Year!
