Random happiness


Check me out! Introducing *Diva ArtsyMama* created by none other than Rhonna Farrer. What a cutie:)

The big news of the day is I got the library job I mentioned I was interviewing for awhile back! I will be working at the reference desk and doing programs two evenings a week. This will be my first professional librarian gig after getting my Master's. Should be the perfect way to get my feet wet again, after being a stay-at-home-mommy for the last 3 years. I'm so excited!

I got my Amazon package in the mail today with the new Nate Berkus book Home Rules, a brand new book on art journals called Visual Chronicles (these two sisters also have a blog) and Altered Imagery by Karen Michel, who also has a blog. Can't wait to kick back with these tonight. Mmm....happiness!

A million congratulations on the library job! As a stay at home mom myself, that gives me hope (once I go back to school and am ready to re-enter the workforce).

And your art is always consistently gorgeous, too.
