I am working on starting a new side business for myself by selling my crafts. I have been doing some kind of crafts for about as long as I can remember. My most recent endeavor, which has lead me to the idea that maybe I can make some money, is chainmaille. I started late last year and I'm loving it so far! I gifted chainmaille earrings to most of my female friends for Christmas and everyone loved them. For my mom and sister's birthdays I gave them chainmaille jewelry sets consisting of earrings, necklace, and bracelet. They both love them. Now if I can just manage to actually SELL something! :)
A friend and I have plans to do a craft fair this upcoming holiday season, so for now I'm primarily working on building up a good supply of sell-able items. It would be a shame to run out of something when it actually comes time to start doing some selling! My hope is that after doing a craft fair, I will get some ideas of how these things go so I can plan accordingly for the future as well as begin to grow an online clientele.
I don't have much up on my etsy site yet, but if you would like to take a look, please feel free and pass it on to your friends!
I moved a couple weeks ago, so my crafting has been temporarily halted. I am anxious to get my new crafting area set up so I can get some pictures taken and get back to work! My goal is to blog at least once a week to give updates (with pictures) of my accomplishments for the week. Unfortunately I am not on my main computer as I type this, so I am limited on my access to pictures. Here is one to tide you over and if you really want to see more, go check out my etsy page!
And one more picutre for a pair of earrings I had a lot of fun making and always make me think happy thoughts when I see them!
