Hi, I thought I would like to know what kinds of things you make to sell to people or just for presents for family and friends. I make calendars each year for our Jewish New Year. My theme this year is Hanni's Famous Heroes.

@Hannihar That sounds really cool! I have ideas of things I would love to make but haven't really pursed them. I would love to keep my hands busy while making extra cash but just haven't found the motivation for it all yet. Was thinking candle making or bath bombs. Not sure. Bit lost on what to do actually.

@VivaLaDani13 I don't feel confident enough to put it out there to sell. I am my worst critic. You have tried candle making successfully. Bath bombs is a bit tricky with multiple ingredients. I think you can do both. You have the drive and determination.

@Daljinder That makes me feel sad because I know that you are talented with creating art. I wouldn't mind trying that candle making again. It was fun. Messy, but fun. And yeah I agree with the bath bombs. And thank you. I think I don't find the motivation because....bath bombs....I so common and people are coming out with so many cool creations and I literally have none....yet..Though in saying that I haven't even looked...so....ya I will stop whining lol

@VivaLaDani13 Find something you really want to do and go out there. That is what I decided to do after I had enough of the course I did. I still found someone to teach me some things but she could not teach me more. So I went with what I could do and replaced the others by buying things.

Hi Hanni, I do not have anything to sell. I just want to write and voice out my thoughts. I love reading and travelling. I think those two things are the major driving forces that makes me want to write someday.

@Hannihar Not yet but I am thinking of it. I want to take an online course in writing online. I hope I can find one.

@annierose Good luck to you. That is a great idea. I wrote one short story that I completed and for me it was hard and did not sell many of them. It was a very cute book too. That is me.

@CarolDM I may have to give some more things as personal gifts but I need the money so not sure what will do with the remaining things.

I crochet random stuffs. Some are meant for family and friends (practical stuffs like hats, bags or socks), some are just for me and useless like this square haha. I wish I can attach more pictures but didn't see an option here. Sometimes, I write poems to speak my mind or just wanna say some cheesy stuffs to my beloved ones. I have business ideas for both things. With crochet I can sell the products or patterns. And in college I wanted to sell customized love poems lol. I didn't do anything though cos I'm too shy even on the Internet.

I like to make beaded jewelry at home. Not for selling, but gifting.

@zarlamain That is a nice gift. Did you ever think of selling them to see what others would think about them. My last job was a a Thrift Shop and then they closed. I was learning computer graphics and decided wanted to branch out on my own and see what people thought of my work. I learned alot. I found that people liked some of the things I did or do and then had to go out and buy other things to have a variety to sell.
