A very good day

Today I got a call from a company wanting me to do a custom scrapbook.  It’s great since I love doing them and need the money but I have another big one I’m working on so time is going to be tight.  I am dying to talk to the woman and figure out who gave her my name.  She said that she got it from someone at Sam Flax but I didn’t think to ask details.  I think the Gods are at work here because I was just shopping at Sam Flax today.  Also, I don’t have any connections at Sam Flax so I have no idea who could have passed the business my way–not that I’m complaining.

I had a wonderful lunch with some good friends and hubby then came home to a package from Bead Trends Magazine.   One of my jewelry sets made page 100!  I’ve had lots of scrapbooking stuff published but this is a first for my jewelry!  Here’s the pages.  Sorry for the horrible pic.

Finally to top off my pretty awesome day, I found at that my good friend Zanne who just got layed off on thursday found a rockin’ contract job alread.  I made her this card as a picker upper for being layed off but it turns out it’s a congrats card.  Good thing I made it versatile, huh?  I picked up the stamps and fun scalloped card on my trip to Sam Flax today.  it screamed out Zanne so I had to pick it up.
