BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!

I interrupt today's Friday Features for a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!
Today was my last day of work at my factory job! I'm officially self-employed!!! It feels SO good to say that!
The first day of the rest of my life :)

I've worked night shift at the same factory for 10 years now. My how time flies! Although it wasn't my ideal job and many days I hated what I was doing, it wasn't all bad. They paid for my schooling and we wouldn't have been able to buy our home, vehicles or other toys if I hadn't worked there. I met a lot of great people too. All in all, I am grateful for the time I spent at that job.

But I am very much ready for the next phase of my life! Self-employed at 29...who would have thought! Before I bought my laser, being self-employed full-time wasn't really an option. I enjoy making my scrapbooks, but I knew it would never be a full-time opportunity. My laser has opened up so many opportunities for me! My business has grown so much over the last year! And I haven't even made half the ideas I have floating in my head!

My goal at the start of 2012 was to quit my job by January 2013...I'm 6 months ahead of schedule!!! How awesome is that! I really still can't believe it's all happening! I'm living my dream :) And my parents are still in town for this weekend, so we'll be celebrating tonight with the whole family :)

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*HAPPY DANCE*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
