Decisions, decisions... [Mar. 10th, 2004|08:11 pm]
Verminius Rex
I'm thinking that it's about time to apply for a couple of weekend jobs and see if I get any. The whole stay at home dad routine is not paying the bills (although we do ok on Marz's income). I should have dropped an application off at Michaels when they were hiring a few weeks ago. I'm thinking Hancock Fabrics is the first place I'll try. The bad part would be that I'd be giving up working Renfest. The good part would be an income. Other places suggested to me were copy centers and coffee shops. Hancocks sounds like a good place to start, I know many of the people and they seem nice.

The attached parenting group met tonight, Pari had a fun time stomping around with other kids and crying when someone took one of the toys she wanted. Now it's an evening of dishes and setting up the brine for the roast on Friday.

With a side-business of clothesmaking, a job at a fabric shop could really pay off, assuming there's an employee discount.

You might also look into costuming for a local high school or middle school. Around here that can earn you between $1000 and $2000 fot a couple of weeks part-time work.

Actually I'm not that good of an all-around costumer. I am a decent sewer but I stick with simple things, or things that I designed myself like the Parimonos. I also don't like even going into a highschool building, it gives me the jitters.

Quit being so modest. You've designed plenty of costumes for yourself. It's women's clothes that give you issues - which you could overcome with practice. (sew wife clothes, sew wife clothes.... :-))
