I got a couple of really fantastic coupons for Michaels in the mail today. Michaels is a craft and hobby store which I absolutely love and could easily spend copious amounts of money there. I Love crafts!! Crocheting being top on the list but I have also done knitting, cake decorating, embroidering, scrapbooking, jewelry making and origami with the odd ball crafts in between. I know how to weave a basket both with reed and a coil. I love crafts!!
I have contemplated opening an Etsy store but I can never seem to get a stock built up because I am giving it all away. That and the fact that I don’t like the idea of giving a portion of my earnings away. I would love nothing more than to be able to make a living doing the crafts that I love. Unfortunately, it is a difficult thing to make money at. Most of the time you can find supplies relatively inexpensive but if you would charge for the time you put into a project you could never get your money’s worth. Which is something my husband points out to me every time I bring the subject up.
Well I know where I am going this weekend to redeem my coupons. I have been thinking about trying my hand at candlemaking. Hmmm
