I love to craft, but everything I make is for DD, family, friends, or myself. My aunt has commissioned me to make a few bibs for friends of hers, but that is the only time I've been paid to make anything.
Well, yesterday I was really stressed. I get anxiety attacks, and it has been a rough week. I started school and there is a lot of pressure on me about deciding what my next step is. Also, DH is job hunting and our plans to try for another baby next month are now completely in the air. So, I was having an attack and I sat down at the sewing machine and taught myself how to embroider with it. Within 5 minutes the tightness in my chest was gone! I felt so much better and so relaxed.
So, what I am getting at is does anyone here make their living doing this stuff and what does that entail? I would love to make crafts for a living. Do you have to focus on one thing or can you do many crafts?
Here is a list of what I do:
Embroidering (mainly bibs, but I can do anything)
Sewing (clothes, doll clothes, pillows)
crocheting (not well!)
And I really want to learn how to quilt!
