We need money. Who doesn't? But really, our bills are officially more than our income, which hasn't ever been the case before. So, I have racked my brain trying to think of something I can do to maybe bring some money in, without leaving the children, since my resignation from my job was to be at home with them. I considered taking in a child or two to care for during the day, but my children take more time and energy than 10 and adding another one would take all my sanity away-- though I'm not sure I even have any left. I considered making desserts to sell, like pies, breads, cupcakes, whoopie pies, etc. But, that is a lot of time in the kitchen that I don't really have right now, and a home food processing license that I don't have time or money to invest in just yet (though I am still considering this for the future). I'm not very crafty and have no good ideas on what I could make to sell. So, my options started dwindling and I was about to give up. Then, I decided that maybe I should try diaper cakes and diaper babies. I made a diaper bike and a diaper baby for Bri and Chris and thought the baby came out great. The diaper bike needs work, so I decided to skip out on that for now. Cakes are easy enough, though they take some time. Diaper babies are cute and pretty easy. So, I decided to make some samples, come up with a little sales pitch, and see if I can possibly sell them. Here's hoping!!
So, today I made a sample diaper baby. I need to finish the head and take a picture. I made a sample diaper cake a week or so ago and just haven't gotten to the baby yet. I then went over the pricing of them in my head a million times. I keep thinking I am going to be charging too much. But really, I'm charging near nothing compared to many sites I have seen online. I am going to post pictures and my little sales pitch on some FB groups that I am a part of, tonight, hopefully, and see if anyone is interested. I really hope I can sell at least 3 a month. That is a profit of about $40. Not a lot at all, but could definitely help with gas! When I get a chance to upload the pictures to the computer, I will do another post showing them and the "sales pitch".
