Well - turns out I wrote the wrong address on my contest submission, so it came back to me and I sent it out again. It didn't really matter because the company did not get enough submissions to pay out the prizes, they had to get 30 and only got ten. . . I'm pretty sure that four of them were mine. . . Anyway, I do have a phone interview with the lady next week and might get some work out of that, so that would be cool.

I also have an group interview on September 18th at Collins College for the possibility of some teaching positions next semester, which would be awesome!

I am finally done with bridesmaid dresses, the flower girl dress, pocket squares and everything else for Kaite's wedding, so expect to see more things up on Etsy. . . though it will probably be a bit because my sewing machine decided to give out and is getting fixed. The other sewing machine that I have is also needing to be fixed.

Perhaps I will work on my website this week. . .

Here are some pictures of my contest submissions. . .

Oh, ouch!

Alexis has been having a lot of fun with this toy lately. I decided that I'd record her playing with it. . .

The camera doesn't capture it all. . . she fell flat on her back from 3 feet in the air onto the tile. Next time I think we will play this game somewhere where she can't make such a "splat" sound on the floor. I don't think it hurt her. Hopefully it knocked the chicken bone that she ate the other day out of her.

The USPS lost my contest entry that I spent a solid week and half dedicated to. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
