Yesterday I started working at a beautiful scrapbook store. It's mroe than just an average scrapbook place, it has vintage items, and altered things, and handmade goods. There are bunting banners hanging all over the place and a huge display of vintage lace! The people are fabulous too! In just the two days I've worked there I've met so many different crafty people, It's amazing!

So to celebrate my new job I decided that I would make an apron to wear to work. I don't have to wear an apron at work, but I was soo born to wear an apron, so I had to make one! And then when I was working today I saw a nametag that someone had scrapbooked, and it was sooo cool!













What do you think?

Actually the first time I visited the store I asked How I could get a job there, and what do you know, one week later I'm working there!! I've only actually been to the store four times, including the two times I've worked!! Yeah I want to buy everything too! I'm going to take an action shot when I get back to work on Friday.

Love it! Looks so cute! I love the way you put the fabric through the lace!
thanks sooo much!!

So creative!  I bet the people you work with are tickled to have you!

Now that you are working there, I hope to see some more aprons for "work"--beats the standard black aprons that a lot of other work places make you wear (or the icky orange ones at that big box DIY store.... Wink)

love the unique name tag as well! Who gets to wear pom-poms on a name tag...YOU DO!!! ha ha

That is super cute!  I want to work at a place where I can wear an apron.  I might just start wearing them at the school I work at.
