Question Help!! Please give me the opportunity :)

Hi Tree of wishes members my hours at work had cut me down to one day a week. I am wondering if an angel or two can help me out, our Church has sales for the holidays coming up and this year I would enjoy to participate. With my almost non-existent check these sales may be the only way to pay bills till I can get further employment elsewhere. I have been reading online about jewelry making, and crafts. This year I know there will be a bunch of sew and crochet items since our church has a lot of elder members. Not wanting to be like everyone I would like try something different *necklaces, friendship bracelets, beads* and with a spunk for our younger Church goers. I am very new at the whole jewelry hobby thing but with youtube and several books online on patterns I would like to give it a try. So far most sites *Walmart, and Amazon* are so pricey on certain items so I have decided on Ebay. If someone can help and give me the opportunity I thank you. I am adding a Ebay wishlist for items on things I need *from the books online*. Thank you.

Also, go to www.etsy.com and do a search for "can tabs". You won't believe the cool jewelry that people make from the pull tabs on pop cans!!! A little ribbon or string or wire is all you need ... Young kids would love that stuff!

Thank you for the advice. Marcus handed me fishing line lol I pray I can come up with something hip. Most our younger members quit going to the holiday sales due to the same constant items

Fishing line is the best thing for stringing beads to make necklaces!

If your first tries come out pretty good, give them away to some of the young people in your church. When all their friends want one, too, tell them you'll be selling them at the Christmas sale. Kids are such groupies... If their friend has one, they want one, too!!!!!

If you want to pm me your address, I probably have some ribbon, etc I can throw in an envelope for you.

Thank you me too. I will try all suggestions at this point. Bills are coming up and I am not sure what we are going to do. I have seen so many neat designs and patterns. Trying something new would be fun and a great experience

Thank you Sheri, I hope as well. Work hours are cut and bills ...it would give us an opportunity to make some funds till I find further employment. I for months have been wanting to try new things everything works out for us.

Again, I have beads, beads, and more beads here but don't know how much it would cost to get it out to you Let me put some in an envelope and go check on Monday what it would cost to get out to you This is a wonderful idea! I know my teens will never come to the Church Bazaars just for that reason - "Ma, there is nothing there that I am going to like"

Lol I know I hated when my parents use to drag me to them I cried every time and threw the biggest fit. Everyone is excited already knowing I am wanting to participate in the holiday festivies I need to get the supplies together. Thank you so much for wanting to help Lorie. I know on Ebay I had picked the cheapest and free shipping since pricing for mailing things are so high and crazy. Thanks in advance Lorie even if anything, the thought is what counts.

I would be happy to pay any start-up fees you would need to set up an etsy shop- all listing fees, ect. If you get a collection of things together, message me and we can start your online selling experience. In high school I sold on etsy and had a lot of success. I would absolutely love to get you started and help you advertise!
