    since it was a craft store I figured it couldn't hurt.

    Terrific...I'm so glad for you. It almost seems like getting paid to have fun! I have a very stressful job, I'm a nurse. Sure I make the money but at times, the stress isn't worth the pay. It's getting worse all the time. I'd love to have a job where I could go to work AND have fun. So I say 'Horray' for you. Congratulations! ! !

    Doesn't get much better than working at a craft store so kudos to you. When you start work, thank your lucky stars they don't sell fabric.....cuz I just know you would have to feed your addiction....ha ha! Best of Luck!
