My Good News!!!

So, many of you have seen that I've been struggling a lot lately, mostly due to my injuries from work.  On top of that, my work environment was toxic, my boss retaliative,  and my health was deteriorating slowly due to stress.  I'm too young to be going through all of these health problems!  Anyway, with the advice from 3 doctors, I finally found the courage to QUIT today!  I put in my 2 weeks notice.  I have a NEW job starting next month, where I'll be a lot happier,  be making more money, will use my degree, and will give me time to do what I love to do -- my art.  Thank the Lord!  I've been praying for something to happen for the longest time.  The extra good news?  I've been out of work for about a week and a half now due to Christmas break and I've been healing rapidly.  It's amazing how much my body heals without the added stress.

With all of that said, here's a new Christmas project!

Here's a gift certificate holder I made for my in-laws.  They live in another state, so the hubs and I like to find a cool new restaurant close to them via and purchase a gift certificate over the phone for them.  We found a nice Italian place this time and I packaged it up so I could mail it to them. :)  Everything is SU!

I love love love LOVE my blogging friends! Thank you so much for supporting me and giving me so many loving comments while I've been healing.  You guys definitely gave me the strength I so desperately needed! More good news coming in January! :D

Good for you on leaving a stressful job. Congrats on new job. I quit the corporate world (was a Computer Software Project Manager, miss the people but not the stress of the job) when my daughter started 1st grade so I would not have to daycare (she had been in daycare from 2 mths thru Kindergarten). Then I took a job with Hallmark which I liked until the new owner & mgr were so unappreciative of my work and I was only paid minimum wage. So after working at that Hallmark for 10+ yrs I quit end of Jun this yr. I now work for JoAnns as a contractor teaching crochet.
