Yesterday I was checking the stock at the craft mall when the owner who used to make cribbage boards professionally commented on my cribbage boards. He told me that I needed a start point on the boards. He said that is the way it is supposed to be. Well, the template that I have is from Rockler and I was just using the template. He told me that the template was wrong. I was cordial about it and told him that I appreciate his input. But deep down I was pissed. So as of today I am pulling my boards from the craft mall. I need to come up with something to replace them. I think I am going to try my hand at cutting boards and step stools.
I am also on a week long vacation (not by choice). I got the call on Friday that I was not to go to work on Monday and needed to call the agency next thurs. or fri. to find out when I go back to work. So on Monday I am putting my application into some other places to get hired directly. I am really tired of temp agencies.
On the upside I have more time for my craft.
Just thought that I would keep ya posted.
