A little magic

These past few days I have felt like I am floating on a cloud.
I have slept better than I have an ages...
I am more excited and want to do so many things everyday...
It's been wonderful!

Being unemployed can drag on you.
And even though I am not technically employed yet...
this new job prospect has given me hope again!
So while I wait for my final interview, I have been spending time doing lots of fun projects!
We put up our Christmas tree...
We hung our stockings with care...
And, I made a new wreath!!!
My old one was destroyed in the big basement flood this year
but I am actually really happy with this new one!
Not too bad for only $7 in supplies!
Next up is lots of gift wrapping...
and I found this great paper for only around $3 a roll at Hobby Lobby!
(they still have the plastic wrap on them)
But I can't wait to wrap everything in these fun papers!
I've also been making some of my gifts, but i'll have to share those later on!

I hope everyone is having a fabulous time!
I'm off to do more Christmas things!
(and mail off wedding thank yous!)

Love ya all!
Jenni

So happy you're feeling up beat about the job interviews! Man, you did a great job with the wreath! I wish I had that creativity.

And your tree looks beautiful.

Someday soon, you will have a table to decorate - and I am sure it will look amazing! I definitely love it, even though I am still learning! :)
