Welcome to Work at Home Crafter, where I feature ideas and inspiration to help craft-loving moms find ways to work from home, doing what they love.
Let me introduce myself… My name is Jennifer. I am a Christian mom of 4, happily married to my high school sweetheart for almost 25 years now.
I have been truly blessed to have been able to work from home since my son was a baby – he is 19 now. I can’t tell you how much it meant to me to be able to be at home with my kids all those years. I was able to be with them when they were sick, chaperone class field trips, and see every milestone. I never take that for granted – ever.
Now I feel like God is calling me to share what I have learned over the last 19 years so I can help other moms who desperately want to work from home so they can be there for their own children. I know it is a cliche – but where there is a will there is a way. And if you are feeling led to stay home with your kids, then trust me – God will make a way for you to earn an income from home so you can! I hope in some small way, that God will use my site to help you on your journey.
About my work at home journey:
I started my journey to becoming a work at home mom by selling on a small scrapbooking auction site. At first, I sold punched shapes and handmade scrapbook embellishments. As my income grew, I then invested in a commercial die cut machine and added scrapbooking die cuts to my inventory.
In addition to that now-defunct scrapbooking auction site, I sold my products on eBay and created my own online store. When Etsy was created, I started selling there as well. Although my focus is no longer on scrapbooking embellishments, I still to this day generate a significant income selling paper crafts and supplies on eBay and Etsy.
Ten years ago, I discovered blogging and added that as an additional income stream. I generate income through blogging by Amazon affiliate sales and site advertisements. If you want to see my site for inspiration, you can check it out at CreativelyHomemade.com.
Back in 2013, I became a Stampin Up demonstrator and currently generate Stampin Up sales through posting craft tutorials on my blog, as well as on YouTube.
Currently I earn a full time income from eBay, Etsy, blogging, and Stampin Up. Through this site, I hope to teach other moms that they can do the same.
