♥ I'm a Shabby Girl! ♥

I just found out this morning that I am now a member of The Shabby Tea Room Design Team! I have been a fan of this challenge blog since the first day it started! It has the most fun challenges and wonderful inspiration. Debbie and her design team are so wonderfully creative. It is an honor and thrill for me to be a part of it!
I made this Snow Globe for the Design Team Call.
I wanted to make something quick and fun for this week's challenge, "Warm and Snuggly", which is to use this inspiration photo of stacked pieces of felt and to make a card or project with felt or fleece on it.
I made a quick and easy gift card holder. I first drew a stocking onto some white cardstock and cut it out. This is to be my base. I then cut out some red felt, the same size as the stocking and adhered it to the paper with a hot glue gun, only gluing the sides and bottom. You have to leave the top open for the card. I then cut out a white piece of fleece and adhered it to the top of the stocking. I then decorated it with some roping, white fleece heart, blue felt tag, K&Co. tag, Christmas pick, Melissa Frances rub-on and ribbon.
This only took minutes to make. So, they can be made quickly and easily when you need something fast. They can be filled with a gift card, money or even candy.
Don't forget to check out the rest of the Shabby Girls and to visit The Tea Room! Trust me, you won't be disappointed!

2019.11.22台北知名酒店經紀公司數據統計22日最新資料,2019年酒店上班女性人數占比逾76%,八大行業提供全國逾7成8的酒店打工就業機會,大學生酒店兼差就業人數達865萬人,顯見八大行業酒店小姐產業環境快速變遷之上,目前上班族酒店兼職的酒店小姐對於台灣經濟依舊有著舉足輕重的地位,抱有渴望未來發展不忘白天的本職學能。八大行業龐大利益來源於制服店、便服店、禮服店、鋼琴酒吧、日式酒店、飯局、傳播等,財金專家指出每年獲利為在新台幣5億以上,其他行業則指前一年營業額1億元以下。

2020.02.21新冠肺炎疫情打亂酒店工作謀職步調,也造成不少酒店上班的酒店小姐運衝擊。根據知名酒店經紀公司「酒店打工發展調查」,年前正在謀職比例從36.7%驟降至19.5%,大幅下滑13.7%;不考慮換工作的比例也從年前14.2%升高至22.1%。上班族酒店兼差所屬有16.8%延後開工、14.2%放無薪假。2019年後是上班族轉換酒店兼職高峰,但調查發現,近一個月有38.8%有計畫轉職,和年前2020年1月21日公布的的40.6%相比,降低6.7%。且年前就開始找工作的比例,也從31.8%驟降至14.7%;不考慮陪睡(性交易) 、顏射(精子射在臉上) 、口交口爆(精子射在嘴裡) 、戴套肛交進行交易專業精緻化等行為的比例則從年前的40.7%降低至22.1%。

2020.04.06酒店工作在去酒店之前,一定要給自己定一個目標及方向,你必需了解自己為何來酒店上班,目的何在? 酒店打工出發點是什麼?
給自己酒店PT一個目標,例如:酒店上班債務還清了就離開、存到了多少錢就走人、或者是打算做多久。
如果漫無目的的一直在八大行業做下去,久而久之,就會習慣這樣高所得的工作,然後就會沉迷於其中,而很難脫離這樣的環境。人對金錢的胃口只會愈來愈大!所以一定要給自己一個明確的目標。還有…賺到的錢一定要存下來,存下來的才是真正賺到的。

2020.05.04酒店工作因為一名酒店S女公關的確診,造成全台酒店、舞廳無限期停業,收入靠酒客的酒店上班坐檯小姐頓失每月數十萬元的收入,紛紛開始找副業度過難關。據八大行業透露,不少酒店小姐轉行當foodpanda(空腹熊貓)、Uber Eats的外送員,因收入不夠支出,還會再兼職當傳播妹,上月底有酒客到台中市KTV時,找熟識、現在酒店PT失業的酒店小姐外送到包廂坐檯,該酒店打工小姐進包廂時,還穿著熊貓制服,也讓酒客莞爾,小姐致歉兼撒嬌「工作難找啊!」知名八大行業酒店經記梁曉尊說,他旗下有130多個坐檯小姐,這次「被停業」後,小姐急著找副業拚經濟,有人當起超商店員,有人花了兩千多元跟熊貓買了相關的制服、設備,兼差當起美食外送員,還有人變成網拍業者,忙著拿貨,上網拍賣,擔心一個不小心就喝西北風,但也有人乾脆當放長假休息,不過每天都會有小姐打電話詢問「老闆,什麼時候要開工?」。梁小尊說,這次停業對酒店業造成的影響真的很大,他有個小姐是高雄人,年紀才20多歲,2年前才到台中工作,當酒店小姐的收入不錯,每個月都有10幾、20幾萬,今年初才剛買千萬的房產,準備在台中定居當台中人,每月要繳的房貸要5萬多元,現在突然沒工作,只能趕快找兼差,期待政府趕快想開,宣布讓酒店等特種行業復業。酒店經紀梁小尊/梁曉尊說,現在不少酒店的坐檯小姐都轉行當傳播妹,外送到各個知名KTV,因為此次政府宣布停業的是酒店、舞廳跟有男女陪伺的視聽業,一般的KTV不受到影響,不過酒客沒了酒店,還是要喝酒,有包廂的KTV就變成最好的去處。梁曉尊/梁小尊說:上月底才跟朋友去台中市一家KTV唱歌,因為知道認識的酒店小姐沒工作,打電話聯絡小姐到包廂坐檯,小姐出現在包廂時,他跟朋友看到都笑出來,因為小姐已經兼差當起熊貓外送,沒空換上漂亮的禮服就衝到KTV,擔心客人找別的小姐,所以連衣服都不換,趕緊衝到包廂內上工。

2020.05.11中央流行疫情指揮中心在4月9日下令,全台八大行業酒店工作有女陪侍場所無限期停業,讓倚賴八大經濟鏈的酒店上班女公關、酒店經紀、幹部、泊車小弟頓失經濟收入。本刊訪問多名在北市酒店上班的女公關,發現俗稱「酒店S」的她們,為了求生,轉攻各大KTV,跨界過起如「傳播妹」、「飯局妹」的日子。之前在「便服店」酒店上班的「艾可」(化名)說:「八大行業沒辦法上班後,酒店經紀(安排酒店PT酒女工作事宜者)就開始跟各大連鎖KTV訂包廂,我們上班的地點就從酒店變成各大KTV。」「可是KTV跟酒店打工不一樣,客人也不多,收入大概從原本每天八千元到一萬二千元,腰斬成四千元到六千元,如果有接到飯局或私人招待所的攤,收入才會跟原本的差不多。」艾可大嘆。此外,由於台北市林森北路「條通區」上百家的「日式酒店」,營業登記為「餐廳」,因此不受影響可以繼續做生意,外傳台北市的酒店停業後,許多酒店女公關轉進「日式酒店」。艾可卻狠狠打臉這個說法,「疫情蔓延後,日式酒店很多早就關門了,本地酒客根本不可能去那邊消費!」本刊日前實地走訪,果然發現以往晚間九點至十二點間擠滿人潮的「六條通」至「八條通」,大部分「日式酒店」都沒點亮招牌,連路人都寥寥無幾。

2020.05.12酒店、舞廳解禁酒店小姐的基本介紹跟工作內容開放有望!新冠肺炎台灣疫情緩和、穩定控制,中央流行疫情指揮中心昨日我在酒店上班的日子宣布,目前暫停營業的酒店、舞廳等酒店小姐一定有S?業者,在符合防疫安全條件下,八大行業可開放營業,且不受室內100人、室外500人人數限制。巧合的是,今日職場須知 【酒店PT 】剛好是酒店、舞廳停業滿月,指揮中心此話一出,相關酒店打工行業人士都很期待。記者實訪一名在北市中山區酒店工作的女公關軒軒,她表示若酒店真解禁,實質上生意一定會爆好,因為台商、業者都「忍很久了」。軒軒說,她所服務的地方為私人招待所,受酒店禁令也暫時歇業至今,這一個月來她都沒進店裡上班,與其他公關們大多轉戰KTV、卡拉OK或是飯局模式;而客層方面,多為熟客與幹部所介紹的友善客人,故在安危顧慮上較放心;但即便如此。收入仍大受影響,跟之前比少了六成,不過因她沒有家計負擔,故這段時間她也當做休息,更規畫了東部旅遊。而對疫情這段時間的感想?軒軒說,其實酒店業並不是四月時有酒店公關確診才受影響,而是台灣確診1月下旬有確診者後,2、3月生意就明顯下滑,因為「有錢人超怕死!」也擔心來消費後確診,很難對親友交代,故2月起收入就已下滑。軒軒也說,而酒店業是「連動」、最能反應「台灣經濟」的產業。經濟好時,來消費、甚至談生意的客人就多;而一蕭條,酒店、幹部、旗下小姐收入銳減,連樓下賣花、賣香腸、一整條賣衣物、精品的店家都受影響,是一層接一層環環相扣的。軒軒跟記者分享一個特別觀點,就是酒店停業這一個月時間,她的總收入雖大減,但是「客單」(顧客單筆消費)收入卻超高。她解釋,因為這段時間都轉戰如錢櫃KTV、卡拉OK等方式,客人消費、開酒遠比在酒店時便宜、小費也多外,收入部分因不用透過酒店營銷、幹部等關卡,少了中間抽成,故費用都是「實拿」,也算是這段時間的特別之處。
