Hobby Lobby started in Oklahoma, at least their headquarters are there.  So that explains where the stores are.  No stores will be put anywhere that they aren't certain they can get distribution to in a reasonable amount of time.  They also have a home decorating store called Hemispheres and a Bookstore/Teacher Supply Store called Mardel's.  The higher-ups seem okay, but not all managers are fun to work for and you never take home much money since it is spent before you get out the door. Undecided  I used to work at one in charge of Needleworks...That is part of what got me into so many crafts.  They also sent all the customers to me that needed ideas on how to make their ideas work. *sigh* It was fun, but kinda stressful since I'm not good at organizing and I am allergic to the faux grapes/balloons.

Okay, so y'all didn't need to know all that, but I felt like enlightening someone.   Embarrassed Sorry!

If I worked in a Michaels, JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby type store I would quickly end up an indentured servant. For life.  Tongue

Give in to craft, Once you start on it's path, Forever will you be ensnared by the chains of yarn, the bars soap, the balls of batting...Your blood will flow dyes, resins, and etching acid...Your hands long for a hook or needle to aimlessly make ANYTHING.  Your everyday will feed the addiction of I make that MYSELF!

Totally quoting this on my blog. *lol*

Random poppet-snippet: I took a bald Poppet to Michael's with me today to find a hair color that wasn't so glaring against the subtle brown skintone (was using bright orange/red/yellow, not quite the effect I hoped for) and got some interesting looks. I accidentally put the doll down on the register counter with the yarn I bought and the saleslady gave me this odd look and said "Uh, that's not ours..." I just had to giggle.

Don't forget that awful compulsion to make everyone's gifts, because they can't get it anywhere else. I spent 5 hours hand sewing a top hat for a five year old boy one time, just because I had to make it! He would probably would have been just as happy with a $10 toy. LOL! You should have seen his mother's face. She was so impressed, and she told me later that he slept in it, so I guess it was a hit after all!
Oh, there was a magician's cape too.
Doll making has grabbed me like no other craft I've ever done.

*slaps forehead* How could I forget the Gifting Smiley ....Oh I know, my poor feeble mind is trying not to overwhelm itself with all the gifts I feel I MUST make, because nothing else will do. Roll Eyes  Such as the applique flame quilt I am making for my brother the firefighter....... Or make leather booties for newborns.....Or make a poppet that is personalized for every person I have ever met... Grin
