Crafting For Fun or Profit?

Why not do both!! If you love to do something than why not make money doing it? I love to craft! I do aLL kinds of crafting. The crafts I love to do the most I make the most money with. I make a variety of stuff. I am a bit hyper-active so I do a ton of different things and when I get bored of something else I go to another thing. I currently make handbags, wreaths, jewelry, make candles, make soaps, and more. I have so much fun doing crafts that to make money doing it is not even a worry. I would do crafting even if I did not make money. So actually if you find somthing you love to do than keep at it. Have fun!! It is fun getting ready for craft shows and flea markets. Meeting new people and getting new ideas for different crafts. You will have a never ending supply of ideas and tips when you network with other crafters. They will get ideas from you and you will get ideas from them. Another thing I found out is that there are some great Direct Sales (Party Plan) companies out there that crafters can make money with. Like for example if you scrapbook you can find many direct selling programs that sale scrapbooking supplies. Here is an example of one My Scrapbook Creations. If you love candles there are tons of direct sales companies for selling candles. Go to Home Party Plan Network For a ton of info and ideas. So you will be doing something you love and earning money and free stuff. You can also your promote your direct sales business at craft fairs and flea markets . This is a great way to network .
