My Last Day

Yesterday was my last day at Lollipops & Roses.  I never thought I would get so attached to a store that wasn't mine, but I did.  I honestly feel like a little piece of me has died.  When I look back I can see why.  I was the one who picked out and picked up the flowers, went to the floral supply house, created the floral arrangements, worked the counter, answered the phones, met and worked with the customers, met with brides, set up displays, stocked merchandise, took out the trash, worked 14 hour days for holidays, and more.  Thankfully, Suzy came in on Saturdays.  She was like my fairy godmother.  When I came back in on Mondays, the floors would be mopped, windows done, and more.  She's awesome!  And like me, she cares about the store. 
We've sold off ten's of thousands of dollars in merchandise over the last month...all at 75% off.  Customers got some fabulous product, floral shops bought an enormous amount of vases, containers and floral supplies.  I showed much restraint, but I even bought a few things.  Heck, even the mailman bought candles.  If anyone is interested there is still a wonderful floral display cooler available for an incredible price, just let me know. 
Now, I have to reset my course and get back to crafting.  Since I took this position I can count the number of days on one hand that I've had time to paint.  Fall shows will be here before I know it and I must be ready for them if I am to make any money.

Happy Father's Day

Here's wishing all our friends and my guys a Happy Father's Day!  It was a low key day for us but we enjoyed a yummy lunch at Grimaldi's, saw our daughter in law, stopped at the nursery and was shocked at the price of pine trees, went to see my dad and brother, and enjoyed the day.  We had dinner with Scott last night, tonight we had dinner with Chris.  I love our boys and they wish for a great Father's Day for everyone.  I hope you enjoyed yours!

The Wood Connection

While on our vacation this week I got to stop into The Wood Connection in Murray, Utah.  What a great place that is!  Finished samples and all the wood pieces you could ask for.  I felt like I died and went to heaven.  I bought wood for my friend, Diane and myself.  Cute the bead board accent pieces, the glitter, metal and more.  Wish I could've spent the day, get to know the girls, and paint. 
You can stop by their blog to check them out...  Right now they are having a contest to gain FB fans.  So stop by, like them, and who may just win.

Officially Unemployed

It's a sad day.  I love my job, but the store is closing.  Yesterday was my last official day.  I'll be giving my time for the next week or so to clear out the store of all sorts of goodies, dispay fixtures and more.  Filing for unemployment was a first for me today, we'll see what comes of that.  If you live in the Las Vegas area, please come by Lollipops & Roses for some great deals...there are many to be had.  It's all kind surreal right now...and weird for me.  Guess I'll be on the hunt for a new job.  :(
