Moving, crafting, and cat-sitting.

Well I am finally back, my friends and loyal readers, I know it's been a long time and I hope you haven't forgotten about me.  Changing jobs, moving, crafting and cat sitting have left little time for blogging lately.

The new job is going well, it's part time for now, but my hours will increase when my co-worker goes on mat-leave in a few months.  Although I may be getting a little too comfortable working only 3 days a week, I really am enjoying my spare time.

Moving has been kind of an adventure and the house is in complete chaos while we try to figure out what stuff to keep and what to get rid of.  Anyone interested in buying a crock pot for cheap? :)

Unfortunately, our craft room/office has been rented out to my sister’s cat, which is why the spare bed is in living room right now.  We have temporarily taken in my sister's cat as he doesn't play well with others and therefore doesn't do well in a clinic boarding situation.  We had an empty room so he stays up there.  Since he's lonely and bored he entertains himself by meowing and crying and banging into the door at all hours of the night.  On the bright side, Sis takes possession on her new house in less than 2 weeks so the cat's time with us is limited.  And once we can use that space it will be much easier to get the house into some kind of semi-organized state.

Now, those of you who know me know that I love to craft.  I scrapbook and make cards and various other crafty-type things, and I have recently decided to re-join Stampin'Up as an independent demonstrator selling all types of crafting supplies.  They lured me back with a free Big Shot, and those of you who know what a Big Shot is know that it’s a big deal!  I thought that this would be the perfect time since I'm not working full time right now.  I have since realized that this was very poor planning on my part.  Planning a move and having lots of extra stuff in the house and hosting crafting classes at the same time is not particularly fun! Luckily Mister has been very patient, we spent days trying to get the house in decent shape for my open house, and it looked great!  I have a class at the house on Wednesday and as I said earlier there is a bed in my living room, and but Mister moved all the boxes that were surrounding the table where I'll be doing the class so that was very helpful!

If you're interested in crafting you can order through my website or contact me to host a workshop or receive info about my upcoming classes and events at stampwithrachel@hotmail.ca.
