Good morning lovelies! Um, wow, Wednesday got here fast, huh? Yeah, I noticed that too. My days have been flying by!

You know how they say "ask and you shall receive?" Well, I've been praying for a new job and more design work for a while and boy, have my prayers been answered. This month I got a new full time job with a FANTASTIC design agency and took on 3 new freelance clients! Add that to keeping up with the housework, training for our half marathon at the end of the month, and trying to sneak in an occasional shower, and it all adds up to one nutty schedule for yours truly. I don't need to sleep right?

And, as a treat for all my hard work, I've decided that this new job (with a new desk) requires some super cute office supplies to sass the place up. I've been drawn to animal inspired officy goods lately and will definitley be adding some of these cuties to my new work home. (Especially the Birds on a Wire photo clips, Magnetic Desktop Birdie, & and Morris the Donkey Memo Pad...ok, seriously, who am I kidding, I want them all...)

I couldn't be more excited about all the new opportunites and can't wait to see what the future holds.
