June comings and goings

Thank you for all the nice comments and likes on my Jane Austen Fabric Journal! As you can see, Paul Simon gave me a lot of "help" when I was finishing it up. Job Update: Dennis flew to NC for a job interview last week and we're waiting for an offer to come from them this week (the job would be in CO.)  It's not a sure thing as he's competing with three others for the job -- so we're holding out breath. I interviewed for a local firm last Thursday, and should hear "early next week"; it would be a temp to hire job.  The "thanks but no thanks" emails keep flowing in from jobs I've applied to online.  I've been out of work for a month now. Waiting, waiting, waiting. But, it is FINALLY summer in Southern Colorado.  We've been enjoying some beautiful days!  Before, during and after job hunting I am sometimes able to get Dennis to go out to enjoy our lovely area.

My Jane Austen Fabric Journal

I finished my Jane Austen fabric journal!  I have loved just about every minute of this project -- and am happy with the results.  As you can see, this particular book has the theme of her novel Emma . So happy, in fact, I made you a video of it!  When he was home last month, Ben encouraged me to begin videotaping my projects, including how-tos, and this was my very first attempt at it!  And, while it's not the most impressive video, as I'm still learning,  I hope you still enjoy it!

I spent some time yesterday marking down many of the items in my shop !  Here's a sample of what is now at a new, lower price:   Cherub   Wall Hooks   cafe curtains   Paris print belt Please share with your friends who love vintage! I also made two "be well" banners for my shop, after people who saw the one I made for my friend who recently had surgery encouraged me to make some to sell! banner These are introductory-priced at $19.     This is the 2nd banner I have for sale (above) I am planning to post again this week with more updates. Nothing as yet on our dismal unemployment situation. Thank you for the well-wishes and prayers; we are trying very hard to keep positive!
