Today's Real Post.

Aloha! No, I'm not in Hawaii. Wish I was though.

Anyway, I saw my Gainesville besties today. So sad that I'm leaving them. <3 <3 They're the greatest girls ever. I hope to see them often. Hopefully they come visit. And I'll come visit too. Layla started to cry when Chantee was leaving. <3 So sad.

I've started thinking of how much money people make off of things that would be so easy!! Example: EVERYONE and their mother makes bows now. Seriously! Have you noticed? Maybe it's just me, but I get bombarded with "Like my page!" invites on facebook for people who make nothing but BOWS all day long. Excuse me, but I was the queen of bows in High School. Don't assume I can't make them myself. And everyone seems to be doing it. I mean, can business really be poppin' for that many bow makers? I don't see a ton of bow-wearers. [Let me insert an apology to all bow-makers out there. Didn't mean to insult you. I think I got a bit carried away, actually. My point is, Bows are more popular than..well...popular stuff. lol]

So, I'm thinking of some things I feel would be fun to make and sell on Etsy, Facebook, etc. Some ideas:
  • Wreaths. I'm obsessed with the DIY wreaths on Pinterest. I want to make so many of them! I may have to start.
  • Jewelry. This is one you can really get creative with. Everytime I go into Michaels, I am drawn to the bead/wire/pendant section. I could get my Innovator side really going on that one. [Damn, now I sound like Vector Peeps with their CVI talk that no one understands. My apologies.] 
  • Aprons. I'm seriously diggin the fancy aprons these days. Fo shizz. I could make some pretty dank aprons, I'm pretty sure. I'm pretty handy with the sewing machine. It would be a time consuming process though.
  • BOWS. Because everyone does, right?
  • Iphone Cases. Yes, I'm inspired to make my own. Out of a clear/blank basic plastic case and some additions (rhinestones, paint, jewels, etc.) I could do that! ;] 
Any other ideas for some awesome crafty things I could make & sell from home? I'm pretty stoked on this idea, by the way. :) Rake in some dough. Speaking of which, I found some pretty fancy expensive china in my house. Not sure where it came from, but I'm sellin that shizz. ON EBAY bizznatch. :] I'm getting a little carried away. I should go to bed. Xoxo.
