Looking for a new job...

Hi blogger followers, friends & family.  As some of you know my part time position was changed last Tuesday to a full time position.  This means my job at State Hospital South no longer exists. To continue working at State Hospital South I would have to re-apply for the same job I already had, only now it would mean working full time, plus I had no guarantee I'd be rehired, my 3+ years experience at the job as a part time employee would not be counted when my supervisor decided who to hire and if I got "lucky" enough to get re-hired I would get a  major cut in pay. Talk about some bad news!!!  After hearing this and talking with my supervisor, I did not feel as though I'd get the job even if I did  apply for it.  So I cried, I was upset and angry, then I got worried because I like everyone else have bills to pay, then I had a long talk with my darling husband, then I prayed (I should have done this first) and then I did some thinking and I decided to quit my job last Friday.  You know what I learned through all this?  First, that GOD is in control of EVERYTHING!!!  Second, GOD is so good because he had already prepared me for this major change in my life, only I did not realize what was going on at the time I was being prepared.  And third that I know GOD will provide for all my needs.  I have decided to stop worrying, as it's not going to help, to trust GOD and get on with my life.   I have said all this to let you all know that I am excited about what GOD will be doing in my future!!!  I am looking for a new job, but LPN jobs are not as plentiful as they used to be. Your prayers for a new job that GOD wants me to have would be appreciated.
Anyway as this is supposed to be my creative sharing place... I had best get on with the sharing.  Right, so today I have the gift I made for my Mom in Law for Mother's day to share with you.  It was also my Cricut Club's April project.  It is my version of a Steampunk Mini Album. I used my Cricut to cut the pages of  book and a few of the embellishments on the pages. There are also buttons, feathers, and of course ribbon, well lots of ribbon really.  I am not a big fan of the "Steampunk" look, but I think this came out pretty good.  It actually has 8 pages, but I thought these 3 pictures are enough to share on a blog.  My Cricut club members liked it. For my Mom-in-Law I put pictures of her 4  grown children into it so it was personalized which she loved and that's what really matters. I will be linking this post to Sarah Hammer Designs Tuesday's link up party . I have added a button to the right side of my blog so please take a moment and go see all the creative people there too. 

Hope you all enjoy!!! Thanks for your prayers, sweet comments (I just love hearing from you) and stopping by my little corner of the web.
God Bless

  1. Vickie, this is a beautiful album. I'm not a fan of the Steampunk look, but yours came out so much nicer. I particularly love the shaped pages. I'm definitely going to try one like it. Thank for sharing this great project.
