Well now that I've been fired by my husband, (a rather long story that has to wait for another day) it's either find myself a job outside the home or figure out some way to make extra money while staying at home. It still does not make sense for me to go back to work just so I can pay out half my income in daycare costs and O has another 2 years before he's in school fulltime.
After my long stint in the office world, I'd really value some way of being creative for employment. Is it so selfish of me to want to do something I'd actually enjoy? Plus, I'm tired of working evenings. I've done it for 6 years and while it was the perfect solution when the kids were younger, it really ate into our family life once E started full days at school.
It really is too bad I can't get paid for reading. Well, I could if I was an editor but I don't have the educational background for it.
So I'd like to make things and my theory is that if I made a variety of simple items, I won't get bored with what I'm making nor put so much time into it that I'd never garner a profit. Sounds easy, right? Not so much.
My first idea, last year I made some really nice Christmas cards only one simple search on Etsy revealed 87 pages of a variety of Christmas Card offerings. It seems like everything I can think of someone else has not only made it but made it better than I ever could.
It's enough to discourage a gal.
