I survived

Whew, I survived spring break... kids home, horrible weather, blah-blah-blah! We are all getting cranky in Wisconsin right now. This is such a hard time of year for us here! My girls are 6 and 15, so it's sorta like we have two only children. My little one is constantly wanting a *friend over*.

Of course I always waste tons of time when my kids go back to school... I sorta need a day to get back into the swing of things. I spent a good 2 hours on the phone with my mom, complaining mostly! And, I got some new address labels posted on etsy (above pic). These are so cute! I made some for our family and some shop stickers, too. I need to figure out how to use photoshop better and do the text and image stuff there (used avery). I can't get the layering thing! If anyone wants to tell me how to do this and work with me a bit on this one thing, I'll send them a set of labels free! :)

For those of you who keep up with my life, you know my husband lost his job in January. He's working as a school bus driver part-time until he can find a permanent, full-time job in his field. He'd kill me if he knew I was posting him in his bus, but I find it soooooo adorable! The unemployment rate here in Green Bay is at at whopping 12%, so it's very scarey.

Take care everyone!

Oh we've still got our spring break to come yet.
The kids break up from school on friday!
Well done to your hubby for getting some work to see him through, my hubby's job is still uncertain and he's still on a 4 day week only!! I hope it gets sorted out for all of us soon.

I'm glad your DH has found something to help tide him over while he looks for a 'real' job. Unemployment figures just scare that *^$* out of me.

I received my prints from your etsy shop this morning and have already matted, framed, and hung them. I love 'em!! :D

That is adorable! :) I'm so glad you all are keeping your chins up...what great examples! My thoughts are with you all that he finds the job he wants. :)

I can help with photoshop as well...over the phone would be easiest to go step by step.
