Okay, so now that I am a stay-at-home mama, I am trying to find some things to do that might help us bring in a little extra income. I am thinking of doing some home-bound teaching when the school year starts again...I could do that on my husband's day off or even in the evenings after Baby W is asleep...but, I am also going to try and start selling some hand-painted signs!
I took some very amateur photos of some of the first signs I made this week:
This would hopefully prevent someone from ringing the doorbell during naptime!
Something sweet to hang in baby's room
For a sweet baby girl
Customizable for a family
For Clemson fans...
(I'm a Tarheel, but living in SC...so I thought this would sell better)
Had to make one for the Gamecock fans too!
(I would add black ribbon to this...didn't have any at the moment)
This would be for a little boy's room
(This one's for my nephew!)
My husband's idea was to take bible verses and make them funny
(The bible passage here is "Honor thy mother and father")
And this is the story of David and Bathsheba...haha :)
Let me know what you think!
And of course, since there are "messages" painted on the signs, I figured I would go ahead and call my business "Mama's Messages." :)
These are all wood plaques that are hand-painted with acrylic paint.
As I mentioned yesterday, there is a BBQ cook-off this weekend in my town, and my husband's dad is entering the Hash category (which he won last year and it was his first time competing!) Anyway, he got a vending license this year to sell his hash and since I will be in his tent, I can sell too.
I am hoping this weekend goes well, and if it does, I might find some other venues to sell my signs. I may even consider Etsy...and I would love your input.
I am also planning on doing a giveaway soon for a custom sign of your choice! :)
