I have some news to share with you. I have a new job!
Yep, you read correctly, I have a new job. At Hobbycraft. What could be more perfect for a crafter?
I wasn't even aware that I was looking for a job, I know that sounds a bit daft, but driving past an empty store in Carlisle, I noticed that there was a Hobbycraft sign outside. I could hardly contain my excitement on the way home....Carlisle, getting a Hobbycraft! Whoop.
Whenever we go anywhere in the UK, I find myself Googling, finding and visiting the nearest HC, there is always something 'new' to try in there. Last time I bought resin, still not used it but plan to...
Anyway, I digress. So I went on the HC website to see when the shop was to open, and found the 'jobs' link. Light bulb moment, I could happily work there, I thought, so I filled in the online application, ended up being invited for an interview and, much to my delight, was offered a job.
I will be just working a couple of 4 hour shifts a week, which is perfect for me with all the other stuff I do. The Bead Shed has been quite quiet since the Royal Mail price increases, so it will be a nice change to be out, mixing with other people, and getting paid for the pleasure :)
If you are local to Carlisle, check out the Hobbycraft website, they are offering a free gift to the first 100 people through the door on Saturday 8th Sept. You might be a lucky one.
If you see me there, come up and say ' Hi' :)
