Well, it's official.... I have a new job!!! For now I will still be working in the lunchroom at the school and will work around those hours. I don't want to give up that job until I know that my new job is a good fit.
Last Friday I applied to an online job ad for a new Scrapbooking store opening up here near me... the store is called Scrapbook Pantry.
Anyway, I applied to the online ad and had a phone call later that afternoon. I went into the shop on Saturday afternoon for about an hour to talk with the owner and to see the store. She asked if I would like to teach classes, do up samples for the shop as well as work in the store. I decided after meeting her and seeing the shop that I'd like to give it a shot.
So, I've been in there a few times this week for a couple of hours helping to "merchandise" the store (that means get everything set up). The store will be opening on Thursday morning.
Starting on Monday, I will be working at the shop Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays from 9:30 until 11am, and then again from 1:30 until 3pm. If it all works out and I truly enjoy working there, I will give up the job at the school and will work Monday thru Thursday from 9:30 until 2:30.
I'm a little nervous about the job as I am not a big fan of change in my life... not to mention I haven't worked more than 8 hours a week in about 13 years!!! I'm also a little worried as I am a stamper/card maker and this is a Scrapbooking Store... not a lot of stamps in there, at least not yet. I am hoping to convince the owner to carry more stamps as time goes on.... I just need to find some new and hot stuff for her to carry!
So I'll be a little busy for the next little bit, running between the two jobs... but I think it will be a fun adventure!
