Nancy, where have you been?

Yes, where have I been. It's been almost two weeks since my last post. So, where have I gone you say? Well nowhere really. I was laid off last week and have been spending the last two weeks job hunting. Fiance and I took a camping vacation over the weekend which really helped to relieve some stress, but now the search continues.

Let me tell you a little something about job hunting in the art world. It makes you feel very dirty on the inside. Basically you scour the newspaper looking for something that you are remotely qualified for and then you call all your art buddies who could possibly have a connection with the company offering said job and see if they can get you an interview. Fun right?

To hold me over until another opportunity job arises I'll be picking up a little PA (read: bottomfeeder) work this coming week in the city. There are several documentary shoots going on currently and those DPs need someone to go on coffee runs and wrangle cables. I envision that this will be a lot like film school which means it could either be good or bad. Pray that I am able to survive the 16 hour work days again.

But  what about sewing you say? Don't worry, there's been plenty of that to go around. I've got several secret gift projects in the works that I'll be revealing once the intended recipients receive their mysterious gifts. In the mean time here's a preview of an upcoming Vinspiration post. Enjoy these full color autocromes from the 1900s-1910s. These awesome images are full color, not hand tinted. Very cool. I'll be giving you plenty of information on who created them and how so look out for that.

Can't wait to see the gifts, and do try to keep your chin up on the job hunt. Good luck to you!

Darn! - so sorry to hear about the lay-off. But you are so talented and have so much spunk, I'm sure you'll come up with something soon.

Lovely photos - look forward to your next posts. But we understand if you're preoccupied.

Sorry to hear about the interruption in your job life...some new exciting adventure must be coming your way...

Oh, how frustrating to have, as Suzanne said so well, and interruption in your job life. Hope it's just a little blip on the radar of life! Here's a little something to brighten your day (I hope):

I haven't commented on your blog before, but I've been enjoying it. In fact, I gave you a "One Lovely Blog Award" today!

Good luck in your job search; I'm glad you have at least some PA work - they say it's easier to get a job if you already have one, right?

Cheers!
Nancy
