I like to make jewelry, and I'm thinking about making friendship bracelets and selling them.

Forgot to add photography, and reading! ;)

I taught myself for the main part.. Some i found online, and some i got the lil paper things they have at like hobby lobby w the instructions.. Alot of em i just look at and play with the ribbon until i get wht 0i want.. Lol the first bow every made in my house tho was by my dh.. It was cute too.. Lil ladybug ribbon.. I make big, little, pigtail bows, layered, single ribbon. Just depends on my mood. The more layers u have the harder it is to keep in line.. Lol It helps when i get depressed to make something pretty.. Lol i started when i was preg w ds and on bedrest.. It kept me really occupied.. Lol i can make like 4 in an hr if nobody wants anything and im on a roll.. Sometimes more, sometimes it takes more time.. Im wantin to do them some bottle cap bows but i want like coca cola tops ect.. Not the caps u buy at the store.. Lol

Thank you! I made it for my mom for Christmas. It has a cool magnetic clasp too. I also made a pair of matching earrings! my camera phone doesn't really do it justice, but you had mentioned you wanted to see a pic. :-)

It really looks that way, I'm just exhausted and accidently repeated myself. DH and I are big into swing if you can believe it

Different kinds. I have my favorites. Unfortunately my favorite, photojournalism, doesn't make a lot of money. So I have to do things like weddings and portraits to make the real cash. I do everything legit. Photography school, business license, claim profit, write-off's etc...

Here where I live, every Tom, Dick and Jane were all of a sudden a photographer if they got a Nikon D60 for Christmas lol!!! So the city started cracking down on them. If you were caught advertising in anyway, even by word of mouth or person to person, or if you received so much as a $15.00 Target gift card, you were considered a business operating illegally! You were fined, audited, and forced to get a business license.

It really has weeded out the sub-standard photographers who thought they were professionals but when told they needed a business license, suddenly they weren' professionals anymore lol!!


Quoting alexvitte:

wow, you are so lucky. what kind of photography?

Quoting LadyByrdNest:

My hobby turned into a profession. Not by choice by demand. lol!!

My photography was seen and then I was approached, offers were made that I could not refuse. 

So here I am, 3 years later, a Three time Award Winning Photographer. 

I would have never guessed. 

God is good!
