I was told Thursday evening that the Scrap booking Store I just started teaching at is closing their east store. It was something of a shock, but given the fact that times are tough in the industry, I could see how it would happen. In this particular instance, it may be a good way to hunker down and weather the storm. The remaining store is on the side of town without any competition except Michael's and Hobby Lobby and will probably keep on going strong. The sad part is that there is a whole great crew of store staff who will be out of a job. That is not good in the times we are living in.
I may or may not have a job. I am the most junior instructor and still have a full time job, which limits my available time more than the other instructors. I hope they keep me on. I enjoy the teaching and I enjoy having money that I don't have to spend on anything more complicated than scrapping supplies if I wish.
However, we will have to wait and see how everything all turns out.
