End of an Era

Well, yesterday I received some unwelcome news; my colleagues and I were informed that, come the end of this month, we will no longer have jobs. We work for the Papermill Shop, which has decided to close all of it's remaining outlets, another victim of the current economic climate. Suffice to say, we are all gutted; being crafty types, we loved our jobs and made a good team. I will dearly miss working with those girls and hope I have made some friends for life there.

We all have varying ideas about what we would like to do now. My head is a bit of a strange place at the best of times and at the moment there is too much going on inside it to be able to make any proper decisions. I love the design aspect of crafting and I'm keen to develop a product range that could be used by crafters and non-crafters alike. I'm a great believer in things happening for a reason and if this is my big opportunity, then I definately don't want to let it pass by!

Sorry no pics today, have been a bit busy revitalising my CV tonight, but thanks for reading my waffle anyway! Bear with me, folks - new beginnings and new possibilities are afoot!!

Sorry to hear your news - not the best way to start the year but as you say, hopefully this is a sign for something better.

Toni :o)

Hmmmm not the best news. BUT I do believe that most things happen for a reason! All the things that looked like a pain in the butt when they were happening to me, kinda turned out to be a shove in a better direction.

My job is very uncertain at the moment so I am considering my options too!

Good Luck!
