Christmas Ornaments

wow.....really been a month since I have blogged... well the issue with that is you  have to be doing something to  blog about it!
Check this out though.
I was paid to make this for  a friend for her to give to her daughter.
I made several of these to give at the office.
The ladies got the snowmen.

Guys got Santa.

Been many, many years since I have made these...
But I made a batch for the gang at the office also.

Hope they enjoy.

Can You Say Spoiled?

My bud. My boy. My baby.
Dakota.






But this is what he did at Granny's today.




Hunting!! Exactly what Rat Terriers were bred for!
As far as I know he has only caught one mole and I made him let it  go.

Business Cards

Image
32 yrs with state government.  25 in the same division, and  department, Printing and Media Services. Then I jumped out of my comfort zone and left to go work for the Tennessee Bureau  of Investigation. 7 years there, 5 in Medicaid fraud and two in the Fusion center.  Thinking retirement then another job came open.
I now work for the TN School for the Blind. Loving my new job.



But it is so nice when I am reminded of my past, friends from other places and other jobs.... Printing and Media Services print the business cards for state employees.
So sweet and so nice to find a hand written card from those friends when you open your cards!
Love the people I have met along the way!

I am always changing my wallpaper on my computers, my profile pics on Facebook... I just like change.
So I wanted to be able to change out my iphone case cover without buying a bunch of covers.
SO.... I bought a couple of clear cases.


Then I got scrapbook paper.

The New Job - Tennessee School for the Blind

Two and half months ago I  went to work for another state agency, the Department of Education, for the Tn. School for the Blind.
My morning walk around the front  of the school.

Another view of the front of the school.

There are street signs all around campus to help the children learn to get around outside. Not all our students are completely blind. Some just have site problems.

And I love the art work around the school.

This pic painted by one of our students hangs in the admin office where I work. It was also featured in a calendar from blind school students throughout the US.



One of my favorites!



So cute...a carrot rock with glasses.

These are painted through out the school halls.
