So another thread has actually inspired me to start this one...
For those of you mothers and other ladies that work from home.....what do you do? How did you get started? I'm looking to do something from home myself...

If it's the thread I think it is, she is asking for a burden.

It really depends if you are looking to turn a profit or just have some funny money. As well as how social you are. I started selling Avon a year ago. I know no one though. I have 4 customers. lol This month I started making jewelry. That seems to be taking off a bit better. Avon had a cheap and easy start up. Jewelry took a little investing. I would like to turn the jewelry in to profit over time.

I used to have a girls hair accessory business. I was on the Internet and is craft shows. People expected everything to be a buck like those ones from china that they sell on the Internet.
Between the quality of ribbon to the time and care that went in I could never sell my creations for a buck.......
I'm just looking for some fun money really

My friend is dealing with the same thing. She has had her business for several years now. Shes set up in several shops and often works in a booth at the mall as well as her website. But, its hard to keep up when China cheapies are taking over!

You could go back in to that... Or even expand on it. Etsy and storenvy are awesome. Maybe post a video of the ribbon you use etc.

They send you a statement at the end of the year. Haven't had to file since I began. But it should not be too hard. Depnds how you do taxes I suppose.
