Hi everyone! Kindly share something about your job and how much you love it. Me, we have a family business and I'm managing it. The business is a craft store catering all kinds of crafting materials. I go to work everyday and personally handle the business. Our customers varies from kids to adults. We also cater to some schools and provide them with crafting materials the students need for their school projects. What I love about my job is that I can make people happy. If they finish a project they really like and enjoy it makes them happy and I am happy for them as well. You see, crafting is a labor of love. You really need to spend time and effort minding the details of your work. Thats why its so delighting if you finish it. I'm also happy teaching people how to do crafts especially the kids and students. Teaching them enhances one's creativity and giving them a hobby that is productive. It also develops their patience because in crafting you cannot do things hastening. What keeps me motivated in doing this is that crafting is also my passion. I have accomplished a lot projects and I'm proud of it. It also motivates me because of the happiness I feel inside every time I see my customer's work finished. It motivates me to learn more about crafts and share it with them.:-)

Wow I love doing crafts, I would not be good to own or work in a crafting store, I'd probably use use all the materials before anyone got a chance to buy them ! lol. Right now I'm not working, but I am trying to start my own business from home. I do a bit of everything, from doing hair, to making clothes, to making crafts for people's homes, to baking, all kinds of things.

That's nice to hear someone loves crafting too. I think you really have the talent because you know a lot of things to do. Even baking. I know its hard because you have to measure the ingredients. Did you had a lesson in baking? Good luck in your home business!

Actually no, I used to sit in the kitchen alot when my mom and grammy would bake and cook, and I am a fast learner, so I learnt myself by watching them, and then practicing
