Wow. Time flies when you're doing.........nothing. Nope, not a thing. Other than a few purchases, I haven't done much of anything tatting related. A mix of the winter blues and school made me lazy, I suppose. The winter semester is always the heaviest, not necessarily the hardest. I just completed Cost Accounting, which made me want to rip my hair out, and Intermediate Accounting, which emphasizes the theory behind the U.S. generally accepted accounting principles and IFRS, the international financial reporting standards. I am happy to say I passed both classes with high marks, thus preserving my 3.8 GPA.
My work schedule has changed, too. I am not a morning person, so I choose to work the afternoon shift. It's been my favorite shift for many years, but I was made an offer I couldn't refuse to work the newly added midnight shift. Four days, ten hours. That means my workweek begins at 8:00 p.m. on Monday and ends Friday morning at 6 a.m. I am LOVIN' it. I didn't think I would, but I do. It's peaceful and I can play with my new addiction, er...iPhone all night long. Damn AT&T for giving me a free one.
Because of my new schedule, I got my tatting mojo back in a big way. Here's a little sneaky peek of what I'm working on:
Now for the product endorsement segment of the show. Being crafters, we all get aches and pains, and we all get dry skin from time to time. Well, I have the cures!
The hand lotion on the left is Olivella. As you can see, it's base is olive oil. The best stuff I have ever used. It heals dry cracked skin and torn cuticles quickly with NO greasy feeling. It smells great, too. You can definitely smell the olive oil, but there's also a hint of orange and lavender. A bit on the pricy side, $8.49 for a 2.5 ounce(75 ml) tube, but a little goes a long way. The only brick-and-mortar store I've ever found it at is Bed Bath & Beyond, although I have seen it available on Amazon for decent prices. Try it, you'll like it.
Well, here's hoping for a nice uneventful finish for my sneaky peek. See you all soon!
