Thinking of Starting Again

We are about 17 days now out from vacation. Milda is on Day 4 of her cleanse and I think I may start one next Monday. You know, one can never start these things on the weekend because with the lack of work, you prey on the fact that you can't eat anything and it drives you crazy. Definitely a better idea to start on a work day because at the very least, you have other things to occupy your mind.

365 Project

After seeing a few of my contacts in Flickr posting 365 pictures, I decided to take a look into it. The 365 Project involves taking a self-portrait everyday for the next 365. As long as the picture is taken by you and includes a part of your body, it qualifies.

I think it's a great idea. Not only does it develop one's photography skills, but you also get to see yourself evolve over a year. Do you look the same at year's end or not?

New Banner and New Items for Sale

Did some reworking to my Etsy shop. I listed 2 new items and added a shop banner that I photoshopped real quick early this morning.

Please go check out my items for sale!

I decided to go with purple and white. I love the brickwork texture.

2009 Brings a Facelift

2009 has brought some ups and downs.

DF has his shop up and running full time. It seems to be doing well and I am proud of his hard work. He is a great business man.

My job ended in February, which is better off since that job wasn't taking me anywhere, anyway. Very poorly run and managed, but either way... I'm glad it's over.

I've been venturing on some new opportunities. I should receive 2 job offers either later this afternoon or by Monday. Some fairly distinct pros and cons of each position to weigh.

Position A: Pros - Great job title, a step up from where I have been recently, tons of responsibility, great staff, fun working environment, can bring puppy to work with me, a real chance to show my ability and skills. Cons - no health insurance, possible low salary if I cannot negotiate higher, longer commute, room for raises but no room for advancement to a higher title.

Position B: Pros - fairly short commute, higher salary, full benefits, nice work environment, my own office, room for advancement and raises. Cons - lower job title, possible lack of enough work, dealing with multiple managers instead of managing myself.

So, as one can see, there is a lot to consider. We will see how it all pans out in the end.

On the knitting scene, I've opened my Etsy shop for NudistaKNITS! I had my first item sold with 12 hours of opening shop. I've recently finished up a ton of dishcloths.

Planning to update more this year. Life just takes it's toll and distracts you from... well, life...
