Busy Money Making Mama

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!
