Good morning everyone,
You might remember my post from 1 July explaining my decision to take voluntary redundancy from my job in school of 14 years.
I could only hope that it was the right decision for me, and said that I didn't know what the next chapter would include, but what a difference a few weeks can make.
As many of you know from Facebook, I now have a fabulous new job (that I wouldn't have been able to pursue while at school) working for Crafter's Companion in their new store based in Chesterfield. To say I am excited would be an under-statement!
I have also undertaken their demonstrator training programme and am ecstatic to say that I passed - so I am also an Accredited Crafter's Companion Demonstrator all ready to let loose on our local craft stores!
There I was wondering what would be the best route to follow, and a door opened that I could only dream of - to work in the industry that has been my hobby for so long. My dream job!
So, I start today with a week of induction training, then we have to get the store ready for the opening - I can't wait. As for the finances, I'm not sure they will be much better as I think I will be spending most of my wages on crafty stash (well, it would be rude not too, when it will be just sat there under my nose!)
So, my mantra of 'things can only get better' sure did work - I feel so lucky to have been given this opportunity and I can't wait to move forward and start the next chapter in my life.
Big hugz, Jan xx
