Hello - well i am still not working but by choice this time. I have been offered 2 jobs but have declined both of them......mad you may say but the timing is not great and I do not want to be in the same position I was in with the last job I took.  Its not morally fair to take a job ( possibly from someone else) and then not be content with it and move on within a week or so. Also my nerves cant take it and i am not sneaky enough to use people - I know it goes on and I will get screwed as well but i dont want to be the screwer - it must be my age I guess. I would not like it done to me so no wages but I do have my morals intact.  I am waiting for a 2nd interview for a job I really really want so please keep your fingers crossed. Its not in the craft world but it is in an area of interest for me - Aeroplanes...........( I did 12 years in the RAF) I will have to complete an online maths test this week so hopefully my studying will have prepared me a little bit. Maths was never a stong point of mine and thinking about stuff does take a little longer these days but hopefully I will be OK.

While I have been off I have taken advantage of IKEA which is not far from me ( Leeds) and I have purchased some great little storage jars and boxes for my buttons and flowers. The boxes are split into 3's so I can have 3 similar shades in one box - I am loving them and it has freed up some space as well. Its so easy to find things in the right shade now.  Lots of love to all the WOYWWW sneaky peakers and I am looking forward to seeing whats on your work desks. Check out stamping grounds blog to find out what the heck i am on about.  Happy crafting X Sharne


  1. The jars look just fab - hope the right job comes your way soon.
    Thanks for the peek. Sarah at 4

  2. I am looking for work at the moment and completely agree with your wish for a job that suits you. That's what I'm doing. I think I've got to the age where I know what I want, I also know my weaknesses (and there are many!) so there are loads of vacancies that I wouldn't want to waste their time, much like you said. So, fingers crossed for this second interview, if it's meant to be..... Hugs LLJ x

  3. Those jars of flowers on your shelf look good enough to eat! Hope you get the job you really want.
    Happy WOYWW

  4. What wonderful containers, I must visit Ikea soon!!! Good luck with your second interview and I hope it works out for you!
