Answer:

I share your pain with this! There are all sorts of ways to make extra money at home. Watch out for scams, though. There is a company called American Publications that publishes a book with all sorts of jobs you can do from home to add to your income. Also, if you can get around at all, Avon practically sells itself with little startup cost. If you look under mystery shoppers or secret shoppers, you can even find jobs you can do from your computer -Web Secret Shoppers I think is the name. Best wishes for success.

Answer:

Here are some ideas:
1. Writing. Find an online or other publication and offer a tip a day/week or column a month about being diff. able and how you see your world.
2. Bath products. Every woman loves them. Bath salts are easy and relatively inexpensive to make and you could probably find lots of recipes online.
3. Could you answer a hotline? There are probably opportunities for that in your area, although it may not bring in extra cash.
Just make a list of the things you like and a list of the things you want to learn, and see where you end up. Good luck!

Answer:

I went to AC Moore when they were having a 50% off sale on silk flowers.I looked at the arrangements they had already made up in the store and saw they were very expensive.I walked around with 1 arrangement in mind,selected the individual floweres and a similar container and some styrofoam and moss and made my own and it looked just as good if not better.Try selling them at flea markets and bazaars.If you don't like this idea,walk around the craft store and see what you do like.Hope this helps.
