Making decorations

Helloooo Blogland - I've been making Christmas decorations this week for the Winter Wonderland samples! I also have some news that I want to share which has got me very excited indeed. I am about to change my profile which says I am a School Secretary so that it reveals that from September I will be a fully fledged Teaching Assistant!! YAY!! As per with me, it all happened very, very quickly indeed. There I was outlining my plans for the coming academic year one day, when the following day I get word of a vacancy that was just tooooo tempting to resist. So I put in my application thinking "Oh well, if I don't hear anything, at least I have the comfort of knowing I tried". Monday comes around and a letter arrives inviting me for an interview on the Friday - ooer!! Now for the difficult bit - telling my Head about it. I don't know why I was so worried though, she was soooo supportive. So I had my interview. Honest to God, I was never so nervous - if they'd asked me what my name was I wouldn't have been able to tell them! However, within half an hour of me arriving back at work I received a phone call offering me the job!! Fantastic! It's what I've wanted to do for so many years, it's what I got my qualification for last year and I am soooo chuffed!!

But back to now - why not pop over to Winter Wonderland and play along with our theme this week and you could also be in with a chance of winning some fabulous papers kindly dontated by our very own Pascale - who, incidentally, has made a demo of her decorations this week which can be seen on her blog. Thanks for popping by! :o) xx
