Some thoughts and ideas for my financial future...

Some of you may know that I am again jobless.  Right now, things are looking pretty bleak.  I have been told by several people over the years to use my talents to make some extra cash, and I spent half the night last night and all morning this morning trying to figure a way to do just that.  I'll admit, I do love to create things, but it is hard to find that one thing that I can do well enough to sell on a regular basis, not to mention I have no supplies or cash to buy any.  Tombstones are a dime a dozen out there, and I pretty much gave away the one that I sold on Ebay thanks to shipping.  I basically gave away the Pumpkin Head that I so lovingly created too - thanks to my ex's oh-so-savvy Ebay work when he sold it for me.  I know Etsy is very popular right now, but I have nothing original to try to fit into the folds there. 

I am really frustrated folks.  I know I can do it, but I don't know WHAT to do.  Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated... I'm just really lost here.  I don't wanna get rich, but if I can just bring in a little something to ease the stress of paying bills, I'd be a lot happier.

Halloween ornaments

I really like these!

Halloween Buyback?

Interesting concept, unfortunately, it wouldn't make it to the post office if I were participating.  ;-)

Worst costumes ever.... retro

I remember these plastic things, but my mom usually made our costumes every year, sparing us from the hot sweaty plastic against our

Chocolate Peppermintini!

This tasty treat is very reminiscent of a York's Peppermint Patty - but with vodka!  We made some at our family Easter/Spring party this year, and it was a hit.  Delicious - as my sister says, it's like a cocktail and a dessert all in one.  I thought it would be a good mixer for the next Halloween party, and fitting because of the candy-like taste.
