It's been a while since I've had a $0 spend month but I did buy some supplies that don't qualify. I got some new rods for my scroll frame and bought some new supplies to make stretcher clips for the side of the frame to hold the fabric. I held off buying floss but I was tempted :). I had a 20% off everything coupon too but I discovered it only as I was about to check out so didn't run back for more stuff :). I may have to get more soon though as I'm starting to run short on a couple of my colors.
I have some progress to show too!
Last post Paradise was here:
I haven't had a ton of stitching time between packing to move cross country and volunteering. School's taken a break yet again but will start up soon. So far packing is taking over and we'll be staying in hotels for a couple of weeks while we get everything in California figured out. Hubby got a response back tonight about doing an interview for a job he really wants so fingers crossed he gets it. It's a paid internship that only goes til December but it pays well enough to get us settled and time for him to look for something permanent hopefully at the same company.
Our volunteering was for a friend who got us into Club 33. Hubby and I ran a silent auction for him while he was busy in California with another event. The auction was for charity and people won some cool signed memorabilia. It was all Disney stuff (of course) and it was a cool experience overall. There were some hiccups and I wouldn't do anything with the lady that ran it again. Out of all the staff helping out (it was a dinner with around 60 people) we were the only ones who didn't get to eat or sit the entire time (around 4 hours) because she didn't know us personally. It was like since she didn't know us we were a complete non entity. So we got to watch everyone eat steak and cheesecake and we for Wendy's that night. Not a big deal but had we known that we would have eaten before we went and I wouldn't have worn heels. I can usually stand for hours on end in tennis shoes but my feet hurt the entire next day too. I was getting toe cramps when I was trying to sleep lol. The funny part is that we had to leave for it right after work so I was doing my makeup in the car and had to change in the bathroom when I got there. Luckily my hair stayed curled which was a miracle in the Florida humidity. I had curled it in the morning and then put it in a bun at work. I took a curling iron just in case but didn't need it.
The highlight of the event was that Jodi Benson was there and did a concert for us. She's the voice of Ariel in The Little Mermaid. She was lovely and we got a photo as well.
Thanks for stopping by! Hopefully it won't be so long until my next update!
