I love Halloween!

Wow.... time flys when you're having fun... or in my case- when you're too busy to have fun! :) Work has been work and they always make sure to keep me busy. I love my job and I've had jobs where I had to FIND things to keep me busy (which I hated) so I guess it's a good thing I have a job where there's literally not enough time to do everything I need to do. I'm a supervisor in a call center who takes calls for AT&T Wireless, so if you have AT&T cell phones, and you live in any Western state, there's a good chance you're calling my center :) Anyhoo, I've been making a lot of cards, but I haven't found the time to do the posting part of it.
I saw this great idea in one of my Creating Keepsakes magazines ( by the way found out I used to date the magazines founder's nephew... kinda weird) :) Anyway, I saw this idea to cover wood blocks with paper and thought I would try it out. I started to cover the blocks because I was going to spell out "Halloween", but then got lazy and ended up just spelling "boo!" ha ha, it wasn't hard, I just didn't really have the time and patience:) It turned out really cute and a fun decoration that is pretty inexpensive. Once I was done with the blocks they looked kind of blah, so I ended up drawing black stitching around it which was a nice finishing touch.
The other thing that I've been doing lately is getting into football! It's kind of weird for me because I really have never been "that" into football. Half because I never had friends that were that into it and half because I never really understood it. I've always liked watching BYU football, but college football was never really my thing. I have a friend that is a die-hard Greenbay Packers fan who loves Brett Favre (who had played for Greenbay since 1992), but now he's playing for the New York Jets, who is my team! It's fun getting into it and talking girl talk about football! Amanda is really funny because she's such a girly-girl, but could tell you anything you wanted to know about the Packers.
Anyway, I'm going to try to post a little more often than once every two months! :) Have a wonderful night and GO JETS!

Hooray a new post! I love the blocks--they turned out very cute and you are right: the black stitching is the perfect finishing touch. I understand about being busy, but I love it when you get a chance to post so I can peek in on you guys. :)

Hey girl, I love the blocks, I was wondering what co. you work for. Jason works for ACS and they have a couple call centers. He's been there since high school. He's in the processing of health care claims out here, but just had to ask if you are working for the same co.? Hope all's well - Melanie
