coming full circle...

so today marks a milestone for me in my professional life. today is my last day at the restaurant support office for raising cane's chicken fingers, the company i have worked for the last 4 1/2 years. in may of 2003, i started out as a new crewmember, learning the ropes of the quick service restaurant industry, and after climbing the ladder all the way up to the corporate office, i'm making my way back to the store that started it all. i am excited to be embarking on the new journey, and excited to see where the road takes me. i'm a little nervous about working in an environment so different than the one i've become accustomed to for the last year and a half, but i know that everyone at raising cane's is family to me, so no matter where i go in the company, i know i'm always at home. my now former boss sent me these gorgeous lovelies as a thank you for all of my "hard work" and dedication.

i nearly teared up at his kind words. it feels good to know that you've had an impact on people. i'm sad to pack up my things and tell all of these fantastic colleagues goodbye. even though we'll be keeping in touch through email, it's still hard to think about not seeing them everyday.

now, on to less sappy things...some crafting fun! below are a few things i've been working on...

1. a card for a sick manager at work. he's my age and had to undergo open heart surgery! very scary!





2. some jewelry for my etsy shop...tell me what you think...the pictures aren't very good quality, and i apologize for that!

this little beauty's name is Margo:

and this is her sister, Madeline:

both will be for sale, along with other pendants, in my etsy shop soon! i'll keep you posted! :]

3. lastly, for a good laugh...my kitten, Roxie, likes to find her way into the strangest places. i came across a couple of photos of her earlier, and i thought i'd share them with you all...she's such a cutie!

sleeping in the Christmas tree...

rummaging through my purse...


helping her mommy cook...

Roxie want a cracker? this is her absolute favorite perching spot. she prefers her daddy's shoulder, because it is much broader, although since daddy's gone a lot, she has decided that her mommy's isn't so bad. i think this is her way of getting you to pay attention to her while you're busy doing other things.

and lastly, i have no words for this...

she's one crazy kitten, but we love her!
