While looking through my 'unpublished' blog posts, I came across these photos of a card I made and meant to share last month with you! Oops! lol! For some reason, I don't have a photo of the inside of this card - sorry about that!
As you can see, I was feeling a bit 'shabby chic' with this card - which is fun considering how silly these farm animals are...

Can you believe Thanksgiving is just one week away already!? Wow - this month has just flown by, hasn't it!? I have so much to be thankful for this year and one of the biggest things I'm thankful for this season is my new job.
I have had lots of questions about what I'm doing now that I resigned from working at the GinaK Designs retail store, so I thought I'd address that here - I hope you don't mind. I have been loving my new position as a child care teacher at a local Christian school/day care. I am blessed to help care for lots of little angels every afternoon - snuggling, rocking, and playing with them. It's a position with very little stress and lots of love, team work, and flexibility for which I am very thankful for and was looking for in my new job. A big bonus? It's just a couple of blocks from my house, so I've been able to walk back and forth to work nearly every day! I love that!
I have really enjoyed getting back to my first loves - being in a school environment, yet taking care of little ones on a part time basis. I get lots of snuggles, kisses, and giggles from the 7-13 month old little ones I help care for each day and don't even mind the crying or dirty diapers! lol! My degree in education has made this transition much easier than I even expected it to - which is always good, right?
It was time for a change and a new direction, so when God opened this opportunity for me, I knew it was time to make the move. Change is never easy but always good, when you are at peace and know that it is the right thing to do.
Have a great rest of your day and thank YOU for checking in on me today!
