I haven’t been blogging much lately, because I’ve been trying to earn some money from home. It’s been keeping me pretty busy! Here are some things I’ve been working on:
Craft Bazaar Items: I’m planning on at least three holiday bazaars, so I need to make a lot of things to sell. So far I’ve crocheted Barbie dresses, drawn 1″ designs on tiles for necklaces, assembled scrabble tile necklaces, crocheted washcloths, and made greeting cards.
More crochet: I’ve also made a couple scarves, which were both sold before I finished them. So I should probably make more of those. Also, I have started a lot of crochet products that just didn’t work out. Oh, and I have been commissioned to make the cutest minnie mouse outfit (3-6 month). I plan to make two so I can sell the other. I’m getting paid $25 for that.
Tutoring: I have been hired by Tutor.com to work as a tutor of English and of Microsoft Word. I took the test to tutor Excel as well, but I was 2 questions away from meeting the qualifying score. So I will have to take it again after I brush up on my Excel. This will be my main job as I can work up to 30 hours a week.
Virtual Assistant: This is the job I was most excited about and in which I was most disappointed. It is very little pay for what you do. The jobs are only supposed to last 15-20 minutes each, but they all take longer if you want to do a good job. And I want to do a good job. So far I’ve made just over $6 and I don’t know if I will be continuing.
Music: I’ve also hung my shingle out to give beginning piano lessons and voice lessons, but so far I don’t have any students. That’s ok. I’m pretty busy, as you can see.
Teacher pay Teacher: I just discovered the new product request section of teacher pay teacher. I am very excited about this because I love creating custom curriculum. So right now I am pumped about possible making some clipart for the digraph CH-. I’m going to make a list of CH words. Would you like to help? Just comment below!
