Santa Claus is Coming to Town
I've been trying to wait until after Thanksgiving to pull anything Christmas out of the closet, but my unfinished projects from last year are calling me. I'm getting the urge to finish the felt applique stocking and make some more ornaments. I read Rebecca S.'s post on craft fairs and started wondering if anyone would buy any of this stuff that I make, and if the money I made would be worth the time spent sewing them. I would like to make some extra money to stretch my savings but I've gotten used to having nights and weekends off and don't relish the thought of being a waitress or a checkout girl.
I thought about selling Avon, or misc. items on Ebay. I've seen some of the stuff people sell as art and wonder if I could paint something silly and get some money for it, too. What about jewelry? Do people buy jewelry made from those beads you find at craft stores? My daughter rolls her eyes at me and asks if we're really that desperate. We're not desperate at all yet, but some income would not hurt.
Maybe it would be easier just to sign on with a temp agency. I can quit those jobs when I get tired of them. They expect that from temps.
