So by now you all know that I have been crafting for about 4yrs now and 3 of that I have been doing it as a means to make some money, since Im a stay at home mome and we are on a budget my crafting created a way for me to make some FUN money. But I soon found that I actually wasnt making a profit at all, I was actually losing money by the time I purchased everything I needed to make whatever it was I was making.
And the fun quickly faded, as I was always haveing to do what someone else wanted and I never had time to make my own daughter cute outfits and other fun stuff.
I have some small bills now, that I would have to figure out how to pay if I choose to quit sewing/crafting for profit. But my daughter would finally have the cute clothes and other items I make again, and no more spending $$$ on clothes that dont really fit her well.(which is why I started sewing in the first place)
I have had my shop shut down for about a month now... and to be honest I havent even missed the extra $ yet. Instead I have been making Childrens craft kits and going to craft sales and festivals and selling them there...NOT going so well, I might add!!! Im quite disappointed in that.
But the biggest problem is craft/sewing have lost its "FUN" factor for me.
Well , I guess writing this post I realize that I already know the answer to my question,
NO MORE CRAFTING FOR PROFIT,only every once in a great while!
So now I guess Im off to figure out another way of making me so moneys..Plus I enrolled Destiny in school last Thursday and she will be going to school so I will have time to get a job now!!
If you know of any stay at home job opportunities please let me know!!
