Random Comments and Layouts

I finished my CT assignment for NadlM at Angel-Dreams-Boutique using her Shimmer Alpha with Doreen Stolz's Walking In A Winter Wonderland kit. I used Luminosity in the layers palette to get the effect on my photo after I changed to to black & white using the Optik Verve filter set.

Now I have 2 more lo's to do for Doreen's CT and two kits to download and play with at Scrapstreet for the mag. I need to make a list in Jan. and check off as I go. Tangie Baxter cut us all a break this month cuz she's on the run, too. I'm glad. I've got a few days off, which is unbelievable, but I've got catching up to do on home chores. Then work, work, work until Christmas.

Speaking of work. At the dept. store, my supervisor is a complete psycho! It's unbelievable, but I always manage to find the extreme cases wherever I work. I don't want to go into it, but the proof is in the pudding as she ran off two employees who refuse to work for her and moved to another dept. And, she is in the process of trying to run off a 3rd. She tried to intimidate me the other night, but all she ended up doing was pissing me off. I think she thought I didn't have a backbone and wouldn't stick up for myself. Bitch. That's all I've got to say about that, but what should I have expected from someone who said GD at work and the F word. Not professional! So then my dh says to me that that is harrassment and creating a hostile work environment and the hr people at the place I work would have a cow if they knew cuz it could cost them $$. Not that I'm doing anything. It's only a temporary Christmas job and it's gone in Jan. cuz I've got things to do!

Anyway, I've gotten a great discount and saved a ton of cash shopping for Christmas which was the desired result!

Took a fabulously long nap today. Ah, the joy of a day off. And I got some grocery shopping in. I'm sure the family was relieved!

The highlight of my days off was getting a pedicure yesterday with dd. She was getting ready for her dance and getting a mani, pedi, and spray on tan. What can I say girlies? This is the south and a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do! So I joined in on the pedi and my feet and legs feel brand new after 12-14 hour retail days between 2 jobs! My toes are a bright holiday red. I highly recommend it to anyone who needs a pick-me-up! I feel picked up!

Dd looked incredibly beautiful in her strapless party dress and peep-toe pumps. Will be posting pics. Her date brought her a gorgeous corsage with white roses. Lovely! A good time was had by all!

Mainly that is it for today. I finished my paperwork. Filed it and lined up two bills for payment.

What excitement for tomorrow? Exercise. OH yeah! And cleaning!

I agree! That effect is gorgeous! I love your layout! Beautiful! And I cannot wait to see pics of her in her dress! I bet she was beautiful!

I'm sorry about the boss. She sounds like a witch!!!!! Well, at least it's almost over.

Have a great day! I might go get myself a pedi on Pato's day off! That sounds wonderful!

Good for you - taking the time to treat yourself. Sorry your manager is such a nut. At least it is temporary. Love what you did with your layout of your daughter. Can't wait to see pictures of her in her party dress.
