Today was a good day. Hopefully this will continue.
I had an interview at Hancock Fabrics this morning. I think it went pretty well but she does have several more people to interview before she's making any decisions so gotta wait to find out. So here's hoping. As I could really use a part time job right now. And the hours they're looking for would work really good for me as I really only want a few hours here and there so I can still concentrate on my commissions. And Hancock is a little classier than JoAnn's as far as retail work goes. As I know they're a bit more picky about who works there and pretty much everyone there does some type of sewing business on the side.
The funny thing though is that the entire time I'm looking at her thinking "...she looks like...it couldn't be, could it?" 'Cause I had seen her come into the store once before and was all "Wait! That's the woman that made that dress for Showboat!" but I wasn't 100% sure as that was over a year ago and all. She must have recently transferred to the store because I don't remember seeing her as the manager before. But anyways. Yup, its her alright as I was talking about past jobs I have had and I mentioned Signature and immediately she's all "I thought you looked familiar!" XD During my work on Showboat, basically the main dress of the lead female was changed last minute and because all the other stitchers were super busy, they called this woman in to make an entirely new dress in like...two days. XD So she came in and the dress pretty much was the show stopper. It was gorgeous. So yeah, was pretty excited when I realized it was her. 'Cause even if I don't get a job there, it will be nice seeing her around just from a customer point of view.
Then I come home from that and I have a message from misskalloway
saying that AmiAmi had the Hades Myth Cloth in stock! I was kinda freaking out lately because I realized I missed the pre-order a while ago on there as they had sold out and I wasn't sure if they were going to put any up after it got released. And the other sites have him listed for a lot higher but I didn't want to miss my chance. Well luckily they did have him in stock so I placed an order. I haven't gotten the invoice for payment yet though so I can't say for sure if I got him just because there's always a chance that he sold out before that went through...but here's to hoping!
And today went pretty well as far as commission work went. Working on shin_san
's costume right now and its going pretty good so far. Hoping to keep this pace up so I won't be stressed out too much in the next few weeks (I have A LOT of commissions due in May, oh lord).
Tomorrow Alyce, Tom, and Beth are coming down to go see the cherry blossoms since they will be unable to attend the street festival and most likely the blossoms won't be in bloom by then anyways. So looking forward to that. ^.^
Though I'm also a little nervous as I just updated my schedule for the next few months...and oh lord I have A LOT of commissions. I'm actually booked all the way through July now. And I am a little worried how hard this will be if I do get the part time job as well. But I'll manage. Or at least learn how to balance my time better. But yeah probably means a lot of busy days very soon. 'Cause I also have stuff I want do do for myself in this time.
