Getting Started Selling Your Crafts


My first career was as a special education teacher. After 15 years of teaching I earned an MBA degree followed by CFA (Certified Financial Analyst) certification. After 15 years in finance I was a vice-president and portfolio manager of a major insurance company before I was downsized. Tired of the rat race, I opted for early retirement. Looking for something to do with all my free time, I started crafting and am now making a nice supplemental income from it.

Craft Crocheting from Your Home

All this information is with the patterns and you will see just how easy it is to achieve your goal of crocheting your first work of art.

Sell Hobby Items by Mail


You can, if you are ambitious, start a Mail Order Business selling collectables to hobbiest by mail. To begin, you must first find a hobby that appeals to YOU. Next, you must spend several weeks researching that hobby. You must learn what collectors want and how much they are willing to pay for it. You should also know what other dealers are willing to pay forthe merchandise which they sell. And you must be willing to pay the same amounts.

What Do I Need to Start Scrapbooking?


The best thing about scrapbooking is that although there are a plethora of scrapbooking supplies available on the market, you really don?t need a lot to make your very first scrapbook. Basically, all you need to scrapbook is an album, some glue, a pair of scissors, and some photographs or newspaper clippings. Any fabric, ribbon, or bits of leftovers from other projects can be used to embellish your scrapbook.

Origami Instructions - Getting Started


The birthplace of origami is still a mystery. Paper was developed in China in the first century A.D., and Buddhist monks brought it to Japan by the sixth century A.D. However there are not many written records from that time, so it is not known whether origami first began in China or Japan. However, no one will argue that Japan developed origami to a high art form. The word origami is Japanese: oru means "to fold", and kami means "paper".

The Power Of Scrapbook Journaling


By journaling your pages you will transform an ordinary collection of photographs into a vibrant and visual storyboard - telling the stories behind the pictures, revealing hidden memories and emotions.

Reworking the Zephirine sleeves
MyCentralJersey.com
As the week progressed, got to 15 inches with the body of my Zephirine cardigan. Mindful that I ran out of yarn the first time I worked on the sweater, I decided to see how much yarn I'll save by reworking the sleeves before I make the body much longer.
