I have finally just about gotten over my addiction to SIMS 2. Okay, so I am not totally over it, I am still playing a little bit, but I am not spending hours upon hours playing the crazy game, and I have actually been getting some knitting done. I finished up the KNIT for Hire that I was working on, and I am nearly finished with the twin to the sweater I made for Taylor. This week I would like to finish the sweater for Chace (picture to be posted soon) and actually get caught up on reading some other blogs. I have also been neglecting Ravelry and my knitting scrapbook so I really should update those as well.
The other major thing I would like to accomplish this week is to find a way to make an additional $100 a week. Yes, I have a job now, but unfortunately it pays a whole lot less that my last job. Sure, it pays more than unemployment, which is what I had been accustom to the last few months, but I still don’t seem to have very much extra spending money to buy all the things I want, like more yarn (like I really need more yarn) and a Nintendo Wii (which I really do need, it is imperative to my survival. LOL).
Does anyone have any suggestions for making a little extra money? I don’t really want to get a part-time job working out of the house, I would prefer to find something that I can do from home or on the internet. I have thought about signing up for one of those survey companies, but so many of them are scams and I can’t afford to get burned. As you know, I have also been doing KNIT for Hire work, which does add a little bit of money to my entertainment spending fund, but if I don’t start knitting some of my own projects every now and then I will never get my projects completed (which would mean I would never need to buy any more yarn, and that is totally unacceptable). I have also thought about posting my greeting cards on Etsy, but the last time I did that I didn’t get even a little nibble. For those of you who have Etsy shops how do you promote your wears?
In addition, my plan to post my stash on Ravelry has completely unraveled. I was on a roll for the first day or two when I started posting it, and then I totally stopped posting all together. I really would like to post at least 5-10 new yarns in my stash on Ravelry each week, and eventually have all my yarn online. That way I can just click a button to see what yarns I already have. For those of you who have posted your stash on Ravelry does it help you curb your need to buy more yarn? I am hoping that once I can see all my yarn at once, I will make the determination that I really don’t need any more yarn. Yeah Right!
