A Job!

I have been cleaning and clearing out my basement for several days. It seems like it is never going to be done but I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. It has been quite a job going through everything; throwing away, giving away, and putting away in storage. Most of what is left is stuff my Sweetie needs to go through.

Cleaning out the basement isn’t exactly the job I was talking about in the title. I actually have accepted a position with a company. After a 14 year sabbatical I am going back to work. It happened so fast my head is still spinning. I emailed my resume to a friend; she sent it to someone else who sent to the HR personnel of their company. I received an email, a phone call, an interview, a few more emails and I start work on the 29th. I am ready for this. I promised my Sweetie that I would go back to work after our daughter, Aly, left for college; that was in ’08. I am excited about this new opportunity but a little apprehensive as well; it’s been a long time since I worked out of the home. My main concern is finding the time to continue to paint. I enjoy painting and creating and don’t want to give it up. I don’t have any plans to close my Etsy shop at this time and I hope I won’t have too.

On a creative note; this is a wash pan that I finished as a special order. I shared a similar one here a few weeks ago. I like how the pan is chipped and worn. This design by Terry French was fun to paint, as always. I did add a few extra touches to it so it would fit well on this project. Thanks for stopping by.

Congratulations, Willa! I know how nervous you must be. It's been a long time since I've worked "out there", too. I hope you will love your new job. And I love the new wash pan. I do hope you'll be able to continue to paint, especially since you love it so much.

The best to you with everything,
Susan

I didn't realize you have a job now! Can you tell I'm a little behind on my blog reading. How is that working out for you?

You are such a creative and talented person, I just know that you will find time to create still. God knows it's a desire of your heart and I truly believe that He will grant you the time to do it.

The wash pan is adorable! A very cute design and lovely colors as well.
