the coolest! Kroma Crackle from a small 2-man company in canada. I can has? a sad turn of events...the babes we've been watching in the nest are gone. they were too young to fly, so it must have been a hungry cat or crow or hawk. usually the hawks will wait till their prey is out in the open though. i hate that part of nature. Delivered a special order necklace today...i love to see the look on people's faces when they open up a something i've created out of their handful of treasures. of course, it's also a little scary - what if they don't like it, etc. usually much conversation has gone on before i get the drill or resin out and make irreversible changes to their keepsakes. i feel like these last bunch o' posts have been downright boring...i'm boring myself, even. just all work for another few weeks. speaking of work...i went in to my former Big Girl job today to say hi and make a delivery. it was odd. right after i left, the place emptied out. not because they couldn't live without me, but more like they couldn't live with the new boss. which is too bad, because the company always had a nice family feel, even though there are a few thousand employees. the CEO used to stop by everyone's desk and chat all the time, and his parents would have a holiday party for the managers. the new boss doesn't fit. and she hasn't taken time to learn her job properly, from what i'm told, preferring to delegate her own work/reports to others. today, she made another employee escort me around. the director found out and rolled his eyes. i had been with the company since there were 3 people in my former department. if i was going to steal something, i had ample opportunity to do so during my time there. it was just her way of letting me know that i was an "outsider." what she doesn't understand is that i'm more of an insider than she is. it felt good to get the hugs and smiles and "please come back's." but i admit, i did get a stomach ache just walking in the door. so boring me - back to work for a few hours!
