Thursday Treasures - Job hunting

This has been the story of my life for the past month: Job hunting. I have made and re-made my resume so many times that I have even learned stuff about myself I didn't know. Cover letters have also been covered during this time and writing one for each job I apply has not been easy. The following Thursday Treasures feature has a few things we might need when in the job searching mode!

This is, in my opinion, a genius move. A portable resume/business card ($4.99) eliminates the need of sending the people you know some more paper, thus saving the earth and saving you time! SuthrnFlwrDesigns is the one to contact for your very own.

Keeping your business cards in this stylish cozy ($16) will guarantee that they are in a safe place while they are "inactive". Fashionably designed by AndreaBaker.

Once you land that so desired job, get your buddies over to TweeCards so they can get you a cool card ($3.50) that celebrates on its own!

Whoever said brown bagging your lunch had to be boring certainly didn't know these unique brown bags ($3.49) existed. I had to choose one for this feature, but there are many more and they're customizable! Hand printed by sammo.

Please, make sure you're so good at your job you land one of these t-shirts ($8.99) on your first company Secret Santa. And if it's from your boss, even better. Made by jamjamtees.

So, I'm back to square one. I'm still sending out resumes and writing cover letters. Wish me luck! - I'm still quite positive :)

Member of the week!

One of my Etsy teams, EtsySpanglish, has been featuring one of our members for the past weeks as a way to promote artists as a group. I haven't been able to blog about this - promise to keep you updated! - and I would love it if you headed over to the blog and read a little about AG Mode. In her Etsy shop you can find her handmade knits as well as PDF patterns if you prefer to do them yourself!

Florida Aquarium pics!

To keep it rolling, I thought I'd post some of the pics taken at the Florida Aquarium the past weekend. Keep in mind John and I hate my camera because even if it has the stability feature, it never works! Posting the good ones though.... enjoy!

Colombia! - long overdue pics

For Holy week, I had the luck to take a trip to beautiful Colombia. I had promised pics and, even though there aren't as many as I thought, I still drool at the sight of mountains. Enjoy!

Delicious chocolate cake by Ananda that I couldn't eat until Lent was over!

My parent's new apartment - destruction!

But the view makes the wait totally worth it!

This is my main temptation, my mom's furniture store. Well, that and the food!

I don't remember what this was but it looks like fun!

I thought I had taken more pics, but apparently not on this trip! It was mainly doctors visits, family coming over and eating a lot. It is just nice not having to cook every night :)

Great Friday Feature!

I feel so lucky to have such awesome customers in my Etsy shop. One was from Etsy Stalker and I loved the feature she wrote today as part of her "Curator Buys:" posts... I was involved! I guess I can finally put this little beauty below, as I have been officially "stalked"! :)
