Brand new adventure

I can't believe its been a year and a half since I last blogged. Here I was sitting here thinking that it was very recent, meaning less then a year ago. Boy... was I wrong. Coming back to the blog however has reminded me of all the hard work I put in on all my scrapbooking and it is nice to look back on what I did in the past.

So where have I been the last year and a half? In school. Ricky (my boyfriend of 7 years) finally said I needed to figure out what I wanted to do in life. This put me on a course that lead me to the Medical Assistant field. At first I thought I wanted to be a nurse but after careful consideration I decided I would rather work a normal 40 hour work week with a normal 8am-5pm schedule, have weekends off and no have to worry about being on call. So I dug my feet in and so far haven't looked back. I finished school a week and a half ago and I am scared to adventure out on my own but I also can't wait. I know I'll do great because I do well on my own but I can't ignore the butterflies in my stomach either.

This transitions me into my new adventure. While in school I took up a new hobby. I started to crochet. It started out very innocently by crocheting a few blankets. Next I decided to crochet a baby hat. I posted it to my facebook wall and before I knew it I had quite a few people asking me to make them for them. After a few orders my friend Kristin told me to post them online. I figured "why not?" I gave it a try and so far it has exceeded my expectations. I don't know if the website is generating the success or if the referrals of people are doing it but I am ever so grateful! I don't know if I will continue to do this while doing my internship but it sure is a great stress reliever! I'm also thinking my next adventure will be to make patterns and see how that goes. Ahhhhh.... Maybe this will be my New Years resolution! It would be so nice to finally achieve a New Year's resolution for once. Ok with that said I shall leave you with a few pictures of things I've done and my site .
