Omigosh!

Sooo...guess what??
The other day Z and I got some daunting government envelopes in the mail - it was a little scary opening them...I think I mentioned that we applied for Z's permanent residency in Canada a while back (a horrid pile of giant paperwork we worked on for months!) because we're not from the same country, so we had to remedy that...lol...easier for us to travel together and, well, live in the same place when we're from the same place. (Me) Not so gung-ho on Bulgaria (I'm sure I would love it, but its kind of scary thinking I may have to move across the world...), we decided Canada was the route to go...annnd...

We got approved through the first stage!!

Woot! Which means I got a letter saying I am financially stable enough to sponsor him and he got a physical work visa in the mail, too! Eeek! So not only are we not up and moving to Bulgaria, but he can work and earn money here now, too!
Yay!! Seriously..such a big weight off our shoulders! And way sooner than we expected! We ran out and had martinis and bounced around laughing and smiling all night, like this:
Hah. Okay, maybe we weren't so cute as Spongebob would have been bouncing around laughing and smiling all night, but we sure were happy!

And, the end is riiiiight around the corner for me....

I am so very sleepy and my eyes are redder than red today cuz I was up so late...
I worked til the wee hours and it payed off...cuz I am finally done!

Whew. Well, okay..'done' meaning I have one small fix, and then a night of rendering the final file out, rounding up all the files I worked on, and waiting hours and hours for them to send. But, luckily, one can sleep while files are sending. Ahh...

Omigosh, I am sooo happy! There are tequila shots in order...if I can manage to drag myself anywhere later, that is. I have a feeling I'll pass out soon after I get home. Sleep is needed, and I'll have to wean myself off of 7 coffees a day. hah. Anyway, I'm at the studio fighting to keep my eyes open and working on some test effects...=)

Oh, happy day! I hope everyone is well! I'll be by to catch up and say hi soon!

The day Z held that work authorization in his hands was probably the 2nd happiest day of his life. (The 1st being the day he married you, naturally.) I know it was for my husband. I am so so so very happy for you guys. Permanent Residence is like a whole new worry-free world of opportunities.

I love your blog. Discovered it not long ago and since then, I regularly come visit!! :) Love all those little sweet and colorful things you make!!

Could you tell me how you made your "3 coloumns" layout? And how did you do to have the little pictures on bot sides of your blog, the ones where you have all yours links?! It looks very awesome. I would like to do the same on my blog.

Thanks for the answer,
