Beautiful Gifts

Today was my last day at La Pashe and although I was ready for leaving it left me with many mixed emotions, happy to be moving forward to a new adventure working freelance and opening my options in the crafting world and also sadness leaving my work friends behind.

After all, if I hadn’t started with the company I wouldn’t have had the option of being where I am today.

I received lovely gifts from my friend, a mahousive bouquet  from Laura of beautiful pink roses and delicate purple blooms and chocolates, a bouquet of sunflowers from the La Pashe team and then Jim Harker my friend and the La Pashe artist presented me with the most gorgeous watercolour painting.

my house looks and smells like a florist shop, I still have my birthday flowers from Chris on the left of the picture and a superb tropical bouquet from Daughter Natalie for Mothering Sundayon the right.

A close up of my Original Jim Harker Artist painting. It is Alston in Cumbria.

Aren't I a lucky girl.

They all wanted to wish you all the best for your future journey and tell you how muh they cared, so just enjoy every bit of it, as it´s all well deserved. But I also know, how you feel right now, mixed between very exited and a bit sad for leaving them all and all the known you use to have there, but it´s just normal, and soon the new everyday will be a reality and you´ll move on but with soo much joy in your heart from all you learned and shared with these great friends, what they´ll still be next week as well right?

I can remember your worries about leaving your job way back to start with Imag-e-nation (pre La Pashe days - lol!). That was a step into the unknown as it was totally different to what you were doing but it worked! I've no doubt this change of path will work too. Good luck Jak. Onwards and upwards :)
