BIG NEWS!

I just wanted to share that I was chosen to be on the DESIGN TEAM for Clear Dollar Stamps (cdstamps.com). I will start with the next new release of stamps. The samples I make will probably be displayed on their website as well as at stamp shows they attend and sell at. I'm excited about the opportunity! It's only a 3 month committment but it'll be fun while it lasts and I'm happy to have been one of the few chosen! So, expect a few more samples here using their stamp sets!

Also, non stamping related - it looks like I may get the opportunity to work from home one day a week. I talked to my boss last week about the drive and that it's killing me (and gas is continuing to rise). He will talk to the Director and see if I can work from home on Wednesdays. That'd save me $13 in gas for the week and 3 hours of driving time! He also said I could play with my schedule (currently 8-5) and see if either 7-4 or 9-6 would work better to cut down on the sitting in traffic. Best case scenerio is that the drive would take me an hour - but with the construction they are doing on the interstate - it's taking me closer to an hour and a half each way.

I finished two new House Mouse cards yesterday so will be sharing those during the week. But for now, I just wanted to jump on and share the good news about Clear Dollar Stamps!

thanks for visiting my blog. To hear you talk of the traffic and job drive, it sounds like the Detroit area. My hubby has at least an hour and 15 minute drive on a good day and he leaves around 4:30 AM to beat the traffic -then works till 6 or later (usually later) to avoid the traffic coming home. I wish it were only 13.00 a day to buy gas but he has a stupid truck right now. I on the other hand, have a little Aveo that I love.

congrats on the stamping accomplishment and hope it works out for you with the telecommuting! I can't believe how long you have to drive to work. Glad you still find time to stamp! :)

Wonderful news! Congrats on the DT position and working from home definitely has it's perks! :) I buy gas about every other week and this week, I only put 5 gallons in my tank. We only use my car for church and anything that HAS to be done by me while my hubby is at work.
