... I've applied for a job.

I have a feeling I might be ridiculously overqualified for it (I might know more if I ever get to an interview) but it sounds quite interesting, and although it's only 15 hours a week it would still be useful to have some money coming in.
Of course, having waxed lyrical in the covering letter about my excellent computer skills, I ended up having to send a follow-up email with the covering letter file attached, as for some reason the first email only had the CV file attached, although I'd attached them both. It was a computer glitch, honest, I do know how to use email!
*headdesks*

Keep your fingers crossed for me please!

ION, in a nice bit of serendipity, I may have found a potential sales outlet for some of my jewellery. I was walking past an art gallery and art supplies shop in our local town, and decided to wander in and see if they had any useful supplies. The owner of the shop recognised me - he'd been an art tutor at the same place as I taught my bellydance evening classes, and we'd had to do the same teacher training course. We got to chatting about how horrendous the paperwork had been, and the nature of creativity, and what we were up to these days, and I mentioned that I had started making jewellery. Completely unprompted by me, he suggested I might want to sell some of my jewellery through his gallery, as he already stocks some jewellery by other local artists. I hadn't gone in there with the intention of looking to sell anything, so it was a bit of good fortune! Of course, it all depends on whether the stuff I make is suitable for his clientele (he liked the earrings I was wearing, which I'd made myself, although it wasn't an original design but a design from a tutorial which I did have permission to reproduce). He also gave me some very useful advice on pricing and dealing with supplying to retailers, and other places that might stock my stuff, so it was a very productive afternoon :). I'll have to get together some pieces to take round and show him, see what he thinks. Even if he doesn't end up selling any of my pieces, it was a very useful discussion. Things are looking promising.
