Well it's been an interesting few days! My hubby has found his first job here in Canada, pursuing what is his passion right now, the restaurant business. He's a prep cook at a restaurant at a mall here that we visit all the time. It's been quite the change.

You see for the past 2.5 years I've been spoiled rotten. My husband has been the homemaker, cook, laundry person and kitchen hand. And now he's working. So both of us are waking at 6 a.m. and while he has his shower, I make his breakfast and lunch, and then get ready myself so that I can get a ride to work to arrive one hour and fifteen minutes earlier. It's rough. So we've finally become the 'normal' double income couple fighting bills, and trying to find time to spend together.

The hardest time was this past weekend. He worked both days, and we've never spent a weekend apart since our marriage in 2005. Saturday, I was a cleaning fiend to deal with it. Sunday, I was extremely sad. But I spent the day trying to scrap and design some new items.

I've been working on some new products, some of which are already in store now. You'll find the sequel to Organic Elegance, and soon, Harvest Moon Jeans.

And I've launched a new challenge at - all about Everyday Living! There's a posting bonus for each person who posts.

Just visit the forum at for more details about the bi-weekly challenge, here.

Can't wait to see what you come up with!

My husband is a resident physician so I know what it is like to be apart and have crazy schedules. If you give it a lot of time, love and patience, it will strengthen your love and appreciation for one another. Great to meet you.

cute papers. My husband has worked weekend and swing shift for years. It is a hard adjustment.

I'm loving that harvest moon jeans!! Its hard getting used to a big change like this. But, then there will be days when he is home and you are not and you will get that big welcome home that you were used to.
