For those of you who craft, bake, quilt, sew..etc, have you ever sold your creations or was it mainly just for fun, gifts and personal use?

I opened a small on the side baking company with a friend a few years back, she left me high and dry to go out on her own, after lying to me about it. She completely ruined my love for baking. I still to this day 4 years later, hate to bake and will never volunteer to bring dessert anywhere.

Anyway, yeah we charged. Not much but enough to make a small profit.

if someone likes something i have made i will make it for them for a fee but mostly i do it because i love to :) I sew and make bows for my girls. Make blankets (the knot kind and t-shirt quilts) But mostly just fun and when i have the time

Painting my christmas village was just for fun.  But i tryed to mail 2 building to my cousin for a christmas gift a few years ago. But they both broke. It kind of sad we also mailed her candy my boyfriend mom show me how to make. She could not eat cause of allergy. I want to sale but people just wont. they think it needs to stay as a set. I dont have  room. I want to sale.

Fun.  But I'd love to open a peanut free bakery in town.  I think there would be a big market for it, especially if you offered some other allergy free products, gluten, etc.  There is just no where to buy peanut free baked goods, so I have to bake everything for our house anyway!

Mainly for fun. But I have started selling. Really need to supplement my income!!
Can't leave my girl anywhere. So I only work 2 days a week (when her dad works)

Just for our own use, or as gifts.
