Using Your Talents to Supplement Your Family’s Income – TOS Article









I had the privilege of writing an article for The Old Schoolhouse Magazine’s fall edition, out now!  You can purchase a copy at Kroger (among other places).

The title of the article is Using Your Talents to Supplement Your Household Income.

The article lists tried and true ways that I or people I know have supplemented their families’ income.

One idea I failed mention was teaching online through VIPKid.  This is a brand new venture for me.  I have been teaching ESL through VIPKid for three weeks now and LOVE it!  If you’d like to check it out, I’d be appreciative if you chose to use my referral link below.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Jewlery Bar – You’re Invited



My niece is selling Origami Owl jewelry. She gave me a beautiful necklace for Mother’s Day. It’s basically a circular locket with the charms inside. She put the kid’s birthstones in there and a cross.

I told her I would love to host an online party.

These would be great for graduation presents, bridesmaid’s gifts, milestone birthdays, etc.

You can use the link below or here to see the jewelry. There are lots of charms to choose from.  This company was founded by a young girl who had this idea and made a business of it. It may be a good small business for an older homeschooler?? I know Chelsie would love to have others join her team.

The necklace she gave me was so special, I thought some of you may want to take a look or pass the offer along.

This online jewelry party ends May 30.



Please be sure to use the links in this post or below, so I’ll get credit.  I’m hoping to earn enough for a graduation necklace for another niece who just finished college. Thks:)

How to Write and Sell eBooks the Simple way updated

I just updated my eBook, How to Write and Sell eBooks the Simple Way.

One of the updates I included was a site I just discovered for selling your eBooks.  It’s a site much like Teacherspayteachers where you can sell your curricula or eBooks to other teachers.

It’s called Teachers Notebook.  The site requires a small sign up fee of about $20.  Once you sign up and pay the fee, you get to keep 100% of your profit.  The site is very user friendly and is really well done!

You can check out the items I have posted so far on Teacher’s Notebook here:

I also included a description of using Pinterest as a marketing tool for your eBook in the update.
