This Halloween themed swap was hosted by two lovely gals, Angie and Beth and they did a wonderful job with organizing it! Plus, it was a great idea. :)
Anyway my partner was Megan and you can see what I sent her here!
Megan did a great job putting a package together for me, I was so excited - it's like Christmas in October!
Included in my little package is:
- Spider tea towel
- Two potholders
- Glittery witch candle, which although the candle holder part didn't make it I had perfect little Bath and Body Works candles that fit in place!
- A pumpkin candle
- Cookie cutters
- Candy filled witch
And most importantly a home made costume! I'm not quite sure what the costume is of, but I do know one part of it is a beard which cracks me up AND keeps my face warm, lol I should've gotten a picture of it, but alas it's taken me long enough to get this post up so no picture.
My favorite item is the witch, because she poops candy and cackles, haha She's also pretty cute:
Thank you Megan for your great package. I had so much fun shopping for yours and even more fun opening mine! :)
In other news - I've kind of had some major life changes and not necessarily good ones. So I've been lax in posting. However I will update you on the job situation...
I have an interview for one job on Friday and I had a phone interview today for another job which I'll get a phone call towards the end of the week to set up an actual interview for NEXT week.
I learned a lot about that job today in the phone interview, it has a lot of PROS and only one CONish item (the hours), but it's not enough of a con to make me not want the job. It is salary and I said I'd never do salary pay again...but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. The benefits are awesome and it sounds like a job that I would really love doing.
I'm anxious to learn more about the other job on Friday, at this point however I don't see wanting one more than the other. I want them both, really, really, really bad!
I'd be fibbing if I said I wasn't nervous about the interview. I don't really have nice interview clothes so against my better judgement I've been trying to find something with money that I don't actually have. On the other end, I hate clothes shopping and haven't actually found anything so the credit card hasn't melted yet. I also get nervous about explaining the situation from when I was a day care director for about 4 months last year. I left abruptly (but on good terms) after 4 months and choose to not list the day care of my immediate supervisor on my resume for professional reasons. I always worry people see that as something bad, realistically I do it to avoid being cornered into talking bad about that center and it's owner.
So I'm nervous, but excited about these job prospects and I'm hoping that one if not both approach me with offers because I could really use something positive right now. Positive thoughts bring positive things, right?
Let's hope so!
Not only am I linking up with the Swapoween post, but I'm linking up with IA and Shawn for Talk To Us Tuesday!
