Jaded Blossom December Guest Designer!

Happy New Year's Eve Eve! Jen here from Cr8tive Chix!

I am SUPER STOKED to be among these other awesome crafters as a December Guest Designer! Thanks for choosing me Michelle and Candace!

Now on to my project!! Here is what I made...

My dear friend Jen (awesome name, right? hee hee) is the queen of bling! She's a cocktail server/model and usually has to work on New Year's Eve, it's a big holiday here in Las Vegas. Her Christmas gift was a cute shadowbox and I made 10 little packages of midnight kisses for her to share with her girlfriends at work.

This is the shadowbox and loose kisses

Happy News!

I am currently obtaining my bachelor's degree in Hospitality Management with a concentration in Meetings & Events. This week I will finish my classroom classes and found and accepted a wonderful internship for a non-profit, Asperger's Foundation. 

While I was applying for various internships, I needed to supply my transcripts because they needed to verify that I had a minimum of a 3.0 GPA. The last time I checked this summer it said it was a 3.47. After attending a graduation in the spring, I learned that you need a 3.5 GPA to graduate with honors. Boy, was I surprised to learn my GPA is now 3.51! That's without the 3 classes and internship grade! I'm just over the moon happy knowing that I have achieved my goal! 

Stay tuned for more good news...

Thanks A Latte Swap 2015

Well today was finals day for me. This is my last 3/4 time semester. Going into my finals I have 2 A's and a B. All I have left before I graduate in May is my internship. I feel very confident that I kept my 2 A's and a B. 

All I have left this week is a powerpoint presentation, a bound report and kitchen cleaning for my restaurant capstone on Thursday. 

Now I am mentally drained and will continue studying tomorrow. So I'm playing catch up with my posts.

Last year my BFF, Shannan found the most amazing Christian woman, Denae Hula, who was hosting a coffee, tea, hot chocolate and mug swap. My funds are limited but I thought what the heck it wasn't bank breaking. I put together the most amazing package for my swap partner Aleena. I have been told I have a wonderful gift of gifting. :) So I decided to do it again this year, my swap partner this year was Gretchen and she's from Mississippi. She too is a fabulous crafter so I knew I had to get this one right. 

I was supposed to get the package out in early November, but my daughter had some health issues that needed immediate attention, I emailed Gretchen to let her know that it would be late, but she would not be disappointed when it arrived. We befriended each other on Facebook and I learned that she had lost her mother about a year ago and she was feeling a bit low. As God's timing is perfect, her package was delivered right before Thanksgiving and to quote her "it was so thoughtful and was the best box of happy and arrived at just the right moment." Here are a few of the things I put in her fun mail.
