Where have I been?!

Wow! Where have I been all week? All over, really. I celebrated my birthday on Tuesday, some friends and I went out to a restaurant in town called Cuban Pete's. The food was good, the service was bad, but we had fun. We mixed our Arbor Mist in with their non-alcoholic Sangria...yummy!!! All day long I was keeping on a look-out for the UPS lady and my Stampin' Up catalogs (what an awesome birthday present that would have been!) but she didn't arrive until Wednesday, when I was super busy with a conference I was attending and with some exciting news...I was offered my first interview for a teaching job!! Keep reading...there is more news I found out on Friday to top that! Thursday I had the conference again as well as a camp meeting and Sara and I made 150 wedding invitations at night. (It was hard squeezing in time to view the catalog!!) Friday I went on my interview, for a 2nd grade position in Closter (about 45 minutes from where I live). The interview went great, suprisingly I was very comfortable and felt well prepared to answer all questions which were asked of me. When I got home from the interview, the principal called and told me that they would like me to come in next week to teach a demo lesson!! She said they enjoyed my interview and really liked me (I was in shock, almost tears...they really liked me!! ahaha so awesome!!!) So I have been preparing a bit for that, and for my summer camp which starts Monday, I just made out my schedule for art for the first 2 weeks.

On stamping news, I did get some new awesome stamps from Stampingly Yours last night at their open house. Anna and I ordered Papertrey together, I got Butterfly Kisses and Little Lady.
They are great and so easy to use! I bought some Versamagic Chalk Ink to use with it today
and I love them. I also have these ink daubbers I got from QVC awhile ago, which have the consistency of chalk ink and are wonderful with clear stamps! Other stamps I got...new My Favorite Things(Hot Stuff, You Take the Cake, and the new Beach one), new Bellas (Chefabella, and Superbella), and A*Muse. It was a great stamp buying night! Anna got some of my favorite company orders in! I was able to try a few of the new stamps out today, but didn't take pictures yet of my cards, so I don't have any samples to share. These cards are more from what I made last weekend at the crop. The top uses a cute cafe scene, by Paper Salon. The middle uses SU! new Baroque Motifs. I like the set, just not so much how these came out...they are just okay, but I've seen some really gorgeous cards with it! Last, this uses Pick a Petal, my favorite!! Each card is a variation on the same layout.

Enjoy and have a happy weekend! Tomorrow Sara and I are finishing up the wedding invitations.
