So, with my baby in kindergarten, I got myself a little part time job, 3 hours a week, I babysit for 6 kids, but besides that I've decided to pick up a hobby, and maybe make some $$ for a rainy day if I can.

Enter: beads. lots and lots of beads! lol, I make jewelry from them, it's taken some time, but I finally sold my first set. actually, this weekend, I sold several of them! shock

My children help me, and my middle kiddo Allison is so proud! I'm so excited, and this is just such a fun way to spend time with my kids (and my mother who makes the jewelry as well). It does wonderful things for Rhyleigh, she loves patterns, and on a bad day, it soothes her to sort out all the beads and put them into piles, or make patterns with them.

Anyway! I love this board because it's full of our triumphs, ideas, tribulations and so much support, I just had to share.

(((HUGS)))

That's awesome. Do you have any pictures? Are you selling them online (like on etsy)?

Much nicer with the pictures inline!! EDIT: Anyone can do it now, too, don't need Insider or anything... same goes for icons, all of us get free icons now too.
