Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!




Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!!  I actually have some REALLY good news to share! I got a job!!! Whoohoo! I'm no longer unemployed! I start my new job on Wednesday!  I'm an Executive Assistant to two VPs in the Recruiting Department of a Fortune 500 company! I'm so relieved that I found a job!

Now, on to Show and tell Friday! My daughter and I have two baby showers to go to in the near future so we made diaper cakes! These were so much fun to create!  This one is for a girl-baby... obviously!


We also made little gift baskets and filled them with some cute baby clothes...all in matching colors of course....


This is the baby-boys...




I picked this non-traditional color because I found the cutest little onesie that looks like a tuxedo...you can see it in the basket below....


Hopefully both these momma's won't be checking my blog soon or the surprise will be ruined!  

If you are joining in on Show and Tell Friday, please remember that your Show and Tell needs to be something from your home or garden.  If you would like to join in, please enter your name and leave your exact Show and Tell blog post link, not just your blog link and as a common courtesy link back to my blog.

Thanks to all of you that join in every week!

Susan said...

Congratulations Cindy! I love those baby cakes, too!

Vicki said...

Well, gosh, congratulations, Cindy! I just knew that one of these times, you'd have a big announcement for us; whew, what a relief...and, look, when you think about it, even though you'd known you were going to get laid off, your actual downtime without the regular paycheck wasn't that long, which is a testament to your credentials...I mean, seriously, in these times, to be over age 50 (although you look FAB!) and be able to cover lost ground so quickly with a great job...wow...be proud of yourself that you've kept up fresh skills, didn't let your spirits sink too much (which can play havoc on interviews) and your organized and comprehensive job search paid off, because job-hunting is hard, sometimes gut-wrenching work (rejections et al). Good for you! TERRIFIC, happy news.

And I love the diaper cakes...is that what you called them? The cutest things; so creative.

Enjoy the rest of your time off before your new, fresh start and, again, congrats and all best wishes on the new position as 2012 is really just gearing up. A new job has its own stresses but it's very rewarding to be once again holding a paycheck!

Susan said...

YEAH CINDY!!!!!! Great news about the job. They will be SO LUCKY to have you. CONGRATULATIONS.

That baby cake for a little girl baby is fabulous! How do you EVER make such a beautiful creation? Did you make that up? FABULOUS. Susan

Hi Cindy,
I've enjoyed your blog for awhile. You are very creative. I discovered your blog when I found you profiled on Jennifer Grey's The Old Painted Cottage. I admire how you've reinvented yourself with diet and exercise and now starting over again with a new career. You are very inspiring. I lost my husband and had to start over again; life goes on and people like you encourage people like me more than you know. Wishing you all the best.

Good Morning to you! I linked up my recipe for Cheap, Organic Face Wash. It costs about $.01 per use or less and is really easy to make. I can't believe how awesome my skin feels afterwards, either. Thanks for hosting the party once again. Have a great day!

It's all about farm life, decorating, cooking, projects, and lots more. Even though my house is very different from yours I love all the white. It makes me think hmmmm! Should I change to this look? Oh, I can't even think about that. I love it all. Hope to see you soon!!! Love the diaper cakes too. You did a great job.

Congratulations on your job,as a past Personal Assistant, sounds like you will have a lot of work on your hands working for two people. Thrilled that you have got such a great job.

I hope you still have time for your wonderful blog, time management is something I am great at with other people but terrible at with myself and I am admire how so many people can have a full time job and still manage their blogs.

Thank you for allowing us to share on your Show and Tell Friday.

Congrats Cindy...what a relief, huh? I was out of work for the whole year of 2010. Finally got a job working for a newspaper selling ads...complete departure from my normal. Was a little scary but turned out to be a wonderful change. Just love it. Good luck. God works in mysterious ways for sure.

Jacque said...

Hi Cindy!

Congratulations on your NEW JOB! I knew that in time, you would find the right one!

I'm totally in love with your diaper cakes. I have seen MANY of them and yours far EXCEEDS them all. As with food, PRESENTATION makes all the difference. I hope you don't mind but I've posted them on my PINTEREST!

I also am so happy for your successful weight loss! I struggle so hard with that issue and it inspires me to see a woman who actually succeeds!

I've been following your blog for @ 5 years and have been so inspired by your decorating, baking, painting, thrifting, etc. I'm still in awe about your post on "The Secret" and it certainly seems to have made all the difference in how you've conquered "issues" in your life.

Thanks for sharing!
