In Dec 08 I was laid off from the perfect stay at home job as an Admin Assist. for a small telecommunications Company, do to the economy. It was definitely not a type of job I was just going to find again just because there's not a lot out there like it plus it was a special situation. It allowed me to work and still watch my sweet Ayden boy who is now 2. When I lost that job I was 6 mo prego and had no idea what we'd do. Who was going to hire a pregnant women and how were we going to afford day care? We really just had no idea? We prayed about it and I decided it was time to to find some piano students. It's what I went to school for and it's what I've always wanted.
Since I still live near the College I attended I decided to see if they needed an extra teacher. At that time they didn't but they said they'd keep me in mind. I was on unemployment for way to long searching for Work at home position and unless I wanted to be a telemarketer there wasn't much else. I don't care to talk on the phone especially with two little ones around so I just couldn't do that.
August rolled around and the i wanted to teach at college would start soon but I hadn't heard that they needed anyone. To my surprise the week before the college started I got a call and they had a teacher quit so I got 17 students. I was super excited to see this opportunity! I also had 2 students at home. This year of teaching has been so fun and a great opportunity! I'm very much looking forward to the fall but enjoying summer break. I have alot more time to devote to Calleigh's Clips this summer so I'm hope you can enjoy the journey with me!
oh yeah - Calleigh's Clips! Obviously I have a little girl and I love all things girly. My mom has always been crafty and she passed that on to me. So I just started making her various items bows, crochet hats and more. I got lots of compliments on them I was encouraged to sell them. We needed extra money and I also always have left over supplies. So I just started making thinks for friends and family as gifts. I decided to venture out in the the facebook fan world In January and I've made at least one sale every week. It's been super encouraging! I love all your sweet comments and love my faithful fans and customers. As you see I'm always coming up with something new. I can't believe we're almost at 500 fans. That is amazing to me.
Okay if I haven't lost you yet....I'm terribly with writing :)
To celebrate today I've discounted all my crochet hats 25% ! So order them while you can. I've got a new section of crochet products soon - Photo Props : Diaper covers with coordinating hats (new styles) cocoons, hammocks and sleep sacks. If you are a photographer or know any please send them my way. I'm very excited about these new items!
