New beginnings & IHSW

Hello!

Where to begin...well, my blogoversary has now passed and I was very happy to have had some lovely comments about my podcast and several takers for a Christmas exchange!  I also agreed to a Halloween exchange and thus have spent IHSW stitching for that. I am happy with my progress as it is half done but it does mean that there are not going to be any pictures until the recipient has it :( Undoubtedly, there will then be far too many pictures of it!  The Christmas exchange will keep me busy for sure but again picture less :( As a consolation I will try and find some other picture to post with my updates :)

It is my birthday next month and I have decided that I want to have a new layout/design of my blog in time for that - I haven't thought too much about it but I am not happy with it at the moment - so will have to work on that too!

I have also been slacking on my other blog..especially in relation to music reviews..I was inspired to write one recently and am just waiting for the interview answers to come back from the band along with an exclusive on their latest video!

I am also coming to the end of my contract at work so need to find another job! Its all happening for sure. I recently realised that I have been working at the same place as a temp (on various contracts and in various departments) for what will be 5 years in November! Its shocking as the job was supposed to be a stop gap whilst I found something more permanent that I wanted to do. I am no nearer to knowing what that job is but I do feel that it is time to get something permanent so that I can get some job satisfaction.

So, before I leave you...I have a question...What inspires you?

  1. Hi Kate, so many things inspire me! History, teaching/working in educational publishing, my stitching, my family, literature, the list is endless, really.

    1. I guess I am inspired a lot by all sorts of things too - I was thinking maybe what inspires you to act on your creativity?

  2. Thanks for commenting on my blog! And sorry to find no pictures, but I can wait too, the anticipation just adds to it. :) Inspiration, that I can find anywhere for stitching or photography (other hobby). To be a bit sappy I could say my DH lets me be myself, so I feel like I can do what I want, and that's pretty amazing.

  3. Sorry there are no pictures, but a secret is a secret, right? Looking forward to seeing them when you can post. All kinds of things inspire me - music, literature, nature, friends and lots more.

  4. Good luck in your search for a new job - perhaps the contract ending is a good thing as it will give you the courage to just go for it and do whatever it is you want to do :)

  7. I too am searching for a Job in my field as my temporary position has just hit 6 months! I read this quote, I hope it will help you as much as it did me:
    "The perfect Job does not exist, you have to create it."

    1. Eek! We can start a club! I have enjoyed the time I have spent here as a temp because it has enabled me to learn every aspect of the organisation but it just doesn't provide enough of a challenge. I hope you find something too and will cross everything for you. That is a great quote!

  10. You know wha'?? I can almost hear your voice while reading that!!! How cool is that????

    I saw the piiiiictures.... I saaaw the piiiiiiiictures. Hehehehehehe.

    Hmm.... I like this current layout.... greens and browns, what's not to love? :D

    What inspires me... my mom. She is so much and more. LOL! Doesn't quite make sense does it... but she's who I aspire to become. God... to become more like Him, through His strength, not my own. The hubby, he makes me laugh and learn. You guys... with your stitching and your blog and your talents. :D

    Good luck with the job search... any luck yet?

  11. Lol!
    I do love green :D
    I just think it needs some pizazz!? No?
    No luck on the job front :( but I will remain positive &
    I also have the added advantage of knowing where
    to look for inspiration regardless of what my following posts
    may say :)

  12. My problem is EVERYTHING inspires me! I actually have to put a lid on myself sometimes to control it. But hate to be kiss-ass, but you certainly inspire me to check out new TV series! Music is a constant inspiration as is Disney...the list is endless, really!
