Last night I was so consumed with reading possible new hobbies that I could try my hands on, both as a means of art venture and eventually wanting to turn it into a small manufacturing business. I slept past my bed time since I was so engrossed reading about beaded jewelry making (already tried it in the past and liked it), baking (too many people doing it) and doing other crafts like knitting and crochet (done it in the past) among other things. There are two things that came to mind, one would be reviving my jewelry making venture.
For beaded jewelry making, I’ll have buy new tools as my old ones are all rusty, literally, all because of the flooding brought about by Typhoon Ketsana back in 2009. A little investment on the beads, wires and of course some magazines for patterns. I’m thinking of signing up for an advanced wiring class but I think with a little research and right keywords, I could easily get youtube videos for simple tutorials on that. So that’s one.
The next item which I spent most of my time last night on will be a secret. Will be rather hefty on the start up, since I will be needing a lot of things and materials for it, and since the use of chemicals will be involved, I will have to allot more time on the research given the fact that Chemistry is the first subject I flunked (only 2 mind you, that and Physics). And I’m pretty serious about it, so I will be looking for hands on classes that will not cost me an arm and a leg so I can learn the basics in the presence of certified instructors. I don’t want anything blowing in my face, all because I attempted to do it on my own.
On another note, I’m thinking of doing a little buy and sell business on the side. Nothing really fancy just small items that we have and are not using. After all it’s just collecting dust in the backyard. My husband and I can sometimes be such pack rats, so we have a lot of items we don’t need anymore. I think his brother’s motorcycle exhaust will be the first thing we’ll have to let go of. Anyway, will let you know once I get to set that biz up, hopefully soon.
