Jobs, Jobs, Jobs

I have been unemployed for about two months now. The family I was sitting for had a summer sitter lined up before she met me. She briefly mentioned me coming back at the end of August to sit for her two boys again and since she works with Hubby she has asked him how my job search has been going. Well, in all honesty I don't know where to start?! I graduated a little over a year ago with a degree in Art History from a small liberal arts college. Though I love my school I feel like my degree left me in the lurch so to say? I have always been a very creative person and I don't think I could be in a profession that didn't utilize my creativity a bit. I just don't know where to begin. I have also thought about my own business briefly. Possible a small thrift type store in the downtown of our town. There are so many vacant shops there that it wouldn't be hard to rent out a space and maybe it would help with reviving it! I love older type things and would love to set my own hours etc... I just don't know! Well, on a different note Hubby's job is going well. He loves it but has been putting in 12 hour days very frequently... If anyone is interested in recyclable furniture (sounds weird but it is fabulous) check out Everything is fold-able and recyclable so if you want you can just pull it out of the closet when you need it. It is also great for kids rooms since they can actually draw on their desk etc... Hope everyone is looking forward to the weekend! Happy Friday :)
