It has been a very long month since I lost access to my computer but it feels brilliant to be back online again. A lot has happened. My 'perfect' job was sent offshore to India back in June and I became unemployed. However, as they say, when one door closes another opens and I am using this opportunity to do what I've wanted to do for a long time and train to become a Teaching Assistant. Fortunately for me I took action long before the rest of the people I enrolled with and secured myself a placement at a lovely First School locally and from September I start my training. I am so excited about that, but can't deny feeling nervous about having to be trailed by an Assessor..... eeek!
Also during the 'lost month' I was extremely fortunate and very honoured to have been offered a place on the Magnolia International Design Team and I would really like to thank Pauline and the team for giving me this wonderful opportunity and I hope that my samples will do their stamps justice. They are a breath of fresh air for me because of their less 'serious' side and I can honestly say that since I discovered them I have never smiled so much whilst making a card! So Thank You Pauline and the team!
I'll leave now with one of the samples that I sent off to Pauline which I really enjoyed making for a forum buddy of mine who was, at the time, sitting at home with a bump waiting for the Big Day - happily she has now produced a darling little boy.
Thanks for popping by!
