Hello friends! This post is going to be short, sweet, and to the point because my schedule has been a bit more packed lately. In a good way! Because….
I finally got a job! It’s just a temporary job lasting through next summer working with the University of Arkansas but I’m really excited for this particular position because I can already tell I will learn a lot of useful skills.
Plus the people I work with are fantastic, the location is near my parent’s home in case there is an emergency situation with my father due to his recent medical problems I wrote about in my last post, and it’s a great way to get my foot in the door working with the U of A should I choose to continue working with them in the future.
Totally kidding…I really think I’m going to like this job.
Back to the subject of this post, the ornament exchange. This year I participated in the Arkansas Women Bloggers ornament exchange. The ornaments were supposed to be handmade, which, to me, just adds an extra special touch to the ornaments anyways. You see my little motto over there on the side>>>
“Happiness is Homemade.”
While I had meant for the motto to be in relation to my recipes and cooking, I’ve come to realize over time that this motto can actually be applied to many other things in life. Like Christmas gifts!
And the ornament I received in the mail this year was such a special gift. Especially for an Arkansas Razorback fan like myself.
Carmella over at Southern Fried Gal made this!
I love it. It now sits proudly displayed on my parent’s family Christmas tree right up near the top, front and center. Thank you so much, Carmella!
And if you’re interested in seeing what the other Arkansas Women Bloggers got to exchanging this year and using their crafting skills, head on over to the Arkansas Women Bloggers Ornament Exchange link-up page.
