Thirteen things that I have done to make money since my husband left 3 years ago.....
1. Child care/ Babysitting (all time hardest job ever!)
2. Ironed clothes (and I hate to iron my own clothes!)
3. Cake decorating (love it, still do it a little, but it takes a lot of time!)
4. Balanced checkbook ( my MaMa paid me to keep hers balanced every month!)
5. Dog breeder (well, this one was a pretty tough one too!)
6. Title researcher (I still do a little bit of this one!)
7. House cleaning (well, enough said!)
8. Sold make-up (not my forte')
9. Party planner (only did it once!)
10. Tinkered in alterations (not as much fun as creating my own things!)
11. Sold my kids clothes that they grew out of on Ebay (still do this one too!)
12. Had 2 yard sales (when I want to redo a room, I sell the old stuff!)
13. Make purses and diaper bags (my all time fav, my passion!)

I've always thought it would be fun to be a party planner. Maybe I'll do that as a second career later in life.

Mine are up. Happy Thursday!

1,2,3,5,7...I love decorating cakes and breeding dogs. I don't do either anymore.

Child Care is a very hard job, especially if they are not your own.
You purses are awesome :) and I think you have found just the right thing to do.
BTW - I had tagged you on Tuesday from My Lighter Side :)

Garage sale at my house...

Stick the stuff out on the driveway...

Hang out for about two hours and see all of one car stop.

Pack it up because it's too hot and take everything to the donation place...

My first TT is posted...

FRIDAY'S CHILD said...

Angie said...

Seems you've done it ALL! Almost. :)

My teenaged daughter wants to be a wedding/party planner when she "grows up."

My TT is up.

Emily said...

eBay is THE BEST when you kids grow out of stuff, isn't it?

Happy Thursday!

I am useless at getting rid of clothes that my babies have grown out of. especially the really cute little dresses. I have them in a box labled "craft fabrics" just to keep them hidden from my other half. He would make me get rid of them I think. lol.

Love the orange dotty bag on your site, so cute!

Happy Thursday!

Your family is sooo lucky to have you.

Kelly said...

You have worn many hats! We all have to do what we have to do in order to make in life. I think your kids are lucky to have a mom like you.

Denise said...

That's quite a list! I'm sure your kids are very proud od the way you have kept it all together.

Mom Nancy said...

Very resourceful, but like you I wouldn't want to sew for other people. Seems like that would make my hobby more like work and not fun anymore!

My tt is up, too.

Faith said...

Love your list! What a hard worker you are!

*Skittles* said...

Wonderful list! I think taking care of my kids is a hard job too. LOL

EmilyRoseJewel said...

That is a lot of things. My mom wants to breed yorkies. My list is up!

Wendy said...

I wish I could find someone here to iron my clothes!!

JK :) said...

You've done a lot of things since your husband left and that's very impressive because you made sure you earn, no matter how hard the job was, even without a hubby's help. I salute you! :)

Happy weekend!
