I went in the Spare Room to get stuck in to more of the clearing of the clutter, it almost feels like a proper part time job now, and in a way I guess it is because I am intending to make some money from all this clutter. After sorting and hanging a few clothes and pricing them up ready for the car boot sale, I pulled this box out from under the bed. When I pulled it out it was full to the top of all sorts of card making supplies, lots of 'bitty bits' that I had picked up here and there that I thought would come in useful for making cards. I used to sell these quite successfully at the Craft Fairs and Farmers Market alongside my lavender products and free range eggs, but now I find myself with neither the time nor the inclination.
This year I want to really devote lots of time to growing our own and being as self sufficient as we possibly can be, and selling at craft fairs etc, in this area at least, the profits you can make has really decreased over the last year or so, so I would rather have one last sale of all my craft supplies and the cards that I have already made.
With this in mind I set to and jettisoned all the 'bitty bits' and made saleable packs out of everything else. Adding up the total I would get if folk pay me the prices I am asking, I worked out that I stand to make in the region of £50.
As this took me about two hours it would appear it is a very well paid part time job !
Everything that I sorted has now been listed on the stand alone page at the top of the Blog
