All over the place?

 Hi ladies! I haven't been around in this group lately as I got busy with finishing up school. I graduated in May and not only have I been unable to find a job in my field, but I also found out I am pregnant. So I have started toying with the idea of selling my crafts again.

I was just wondering what your opinions are- is it better to stick to one niche or do multiple things? I have a large range of things that I make.

I sew children's and women's clothing, I hand embroider bibs, I make hair bows, I make Barbie clothes and have started working on Barbie furniture, I make home decorations, and I would love to get into jewelry making. Is that too all over the place? I just get bored doing the same things over and over again.

What if youi started a shop and then started to narrow it down with what sells best?  I make cards, vinyl creations, chunky necklaces, and metal stamping.  I'm finding that my metal stamping does best locally but that my vinyl creations do okay online.

I would offer what you are good at and sells the most. I can make tons of things but I have found that most I don't enjoy doing so if I do them I will only make as gifts or my kids. I'm up for anything once! LOL

Good luck and congrats!!

 Thanks! I got an associates in paralegal studies from my local community college. I guess with the economy many new lawyers are taking paralegal work because they can't get work as a lawyer, ugh. I am also starting my bachelor's in the fall!

 LOL, I am getting my bachelor's in Psychology as well! I am going to a non-traditional school where I will take some classes online and others as independant studies. My plan is to get a Master's in Mental Health Counseling. What do you plan to do with your degree?

I would really like to work with children, Either as a school counselor or something. I haven't totally decided and may even try to work at a hospital. As long as I get to help people I think I"d be happy.
