Put your party hat on!!!



Do you have one???? I did not before I started blogging.  Lisa Kettell made the pink star hat for me(it's in my banner on the right).  This green Antionette hat came to me via Cassandra's birthday party.  It was her birthday, but instead of her receiving gifts she did the nicest giveaways.  This is what I won!   Don't you love it??? I love the detail.  I hope the top picture helps you appreciate it.  The party hat came at the perfect time.  I have something to celebrate!!!!!!!! It has been a long six months since the store I worked  at closed.  I had a list a mile long I wanted to complete AND find a job.  I am so thrilled to say I am Assistant Manager of a store called PAPER SOURCE.  It will be opening in Princeton, New Jersey in mid-June.  In my wildest dreams I did not think I would find a job in an industry I am crazy about.  A great lesson learned in hope, faith, and love.  Something that I learned young in life, but like everyone I have been tested many times along the way.  I had to ask if it was alright to continue blogging and include writing about my job.......yes!!! and it is encouraged!!!!!!!  I would have a hard time not including blogging in my future.  It is a big part of my life.  I am looking forward to the blogging party on May 1st.  What could be better than a party to celebrate what we love about blogging?

Geralyn, I know I already told you how happy I am for you, but... Woo Hoo...I have to tell you again! I was looking at the website, right where you belong! We don't have any in Ohio but next time I visit my S-I-L in Chicago we will definitely visit the store there. Hugs and hugs and hugs, Pam

How awesome! I LOVE paper source and you are the perfect woman to manage a beautiful store filled with creative goodies. The is one in my hometown of Alexandria, Virginia, but now I will have a great excuse to come to N.J. and meet you. After I recover from my surgery, I feel a road trip coming on. So happy for you.
