My Hobby Paid Out!

I didn't blog on Tuesday because I had to use my little bit of free time working on a different hobby.

A few months ago I saw a pair of flip flops decorated with balloons on the floor at Heidi's gymnastics gym so I made her a pair. Then I made some for her friends. Then I thought, well, this is easy, I should throw them up on etsy and see if anything happens.

I sort of forgot about it, save for the emails etsy sends me reminding me I have a store, and went about my daily life.

Then on Monday morning a woman emails me asking for 12 pairs of balloon flip flops for party favors for her daughters birthday. I made sure I had the inventory and would be able to ship them in time and we struck a deal.

It took me just over two hours to make and package the shoes and now I am up a little spending money.

Not to mention I had fun!

Maybe I will sell more. Maybe I will see that necklace I posted.

Maybe I will just go back to my life and forget again.
