Job Search

Well I didn't realize how grueling job searching is. Since I graduated and got my degree on October 3rd, I have been hitting the streets in search of a job. I have also been applying on line. Has anyone ever applied on-line? Very time consuming. It takes about an hour for just one application. I really hate it. I prefer to apply in person call me old fashion, but I strongly believe that a first impression makes a big difference. I will try not to be missing in action please bare with me.

East Harvest Wreath

Add a warm touch to a front door using autumn's bounty of free and colorful craft supplies. Incorporate the season's natural decorations into a welcoming wreath. Start with a basic wreath form (either made from florist's foam or a plain grapevine wreath) and attach gourds, mini pumpkins and leaves using hot-glue or wire.
You can get all these items at your local Dollar Store.

Trench Coat

My new trench.

First off let me say that I have been searching for a trench coat for 2 years. My main problem was money or lack of. Second thing was if I found one I could afford it didn't fit.

I went to Savers with my daughter to find a few shirts that she could wear for work. I also  was looking for a pair of beige or cream colored slacks to add to my work clothes wardrobe.

I found two pairs of pant that fit so I went to browse the coats, like I do every time I go. There it was, a practical brand new, tan, long trench coat. It even had a detachable hood. I checked and it was my size and it fit beautifully. I was almost afraid to look at the price. I was shocked to see that it was under $20.00, $17.99 to be exact.

I was so excited even though I had to put the pants back because I only had $25.00 to spend. If you look long enough and are patient you will find what you need at your local second hand clothing stores.
