So I've been thinking of all these ways to earn money this winter, as I plan to quit my job in another two or so months, (maybe sooner).

Pretty much, each paycheck I walk away with maybe $100. And for the amount of work I do, it's just WAY not worth it. I can't even begin to tell you how sick of it I am basically working for only $2.50 an hour. I mean, hell, I make $9, at a job that SHOULD be paying at least $12 an hour, and then I pretty much get none of it. So working has become just pointless to me.

Personal reasons as to why I make that much and why it's taken away, but anyways...
(And no, it's got nothing to do with friends, other people, parents, or anything like that)

So I've been coming up with lots of ways to make money on my own this winter. I could honestly just be a lazy bum all winter long and do nothing, (which I may end up doing anyways), but I'd like to still have an income coming in. XD

Pretty much, going to try and make and sell at /least/ two pony plushies a month on ebay.
As well as take at least 2 animation commissions a month.

Which, from what I've made the last few times I've done animation commissions and sold ponies, would be about $200 a month if I did that. :3 Which would all be my money to keep and do with whatever I want. :heart:

And actually my ideas are a bit more indepth then that, but this is just /basically/ what I'm going to try and do.

Also, I'm actually working on some of the plushies I owe, finally. ;w; One person I promised I'd be done with their plush at the end of July, well, TWO MONTHS LATER and it's still not done. ;A; So I hope to have that done by the end of this month at least. But it is my favorite plush I've ever made. ;w; Like, I love everything about it. :heart: The ears are just perfect, oh my gawd. :heart:

One plush I've had sitting around forever needing to be shipped. >A> I just put things off when it involves talking to anyone, I get too nervous and just feel all panicky and then never message anyone. ;w;

Also, I told someone else that I'd have their pictures done by the end of last month, that didn't happen. *head desk* But I'm soooo close to having it done, I need to stop being a Hetalia watching freak and go finish those. (Seriously, there is no reason that I put the same 3 episodes on repeat 5+ times a day -each- I need to go be productive!)

Also, more picture commissions I need to finish. BC Ffffffff, one person has been waiting a YEAR and their picture is so close to being finished, but I can't find the motivation and I'm going to start hitting my head on the wall or something because ffffffffffffffffffffffffff I need to finish this darn thing! And I actually really love the picture and enjoy working on, yet can't find the motivation? Da fawk?

Alsoooooooooo, I know I still owe lots of people art trades, just know, ya'll haven't been forgotten! XD I'm just slow.
And lazy. >A>

Yeah, this journal is pretty pointless, I just felt like talking. :I

Whenever me and my friend alyssa needed to make extra cash in the winter, we set up in town and did christmas carols and dances to them, and made a bit from that. but i get that thats not everyones thing xD

This is why I'm going to collage for cosmetology. xD
Catyack Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2012
Thought about making those silly paper children? I've seen people go crazy for those from other artists.
Or maybe close commissions, and do this thing I've seen others do where the three highest bidders each get a money commission. I suck at explaining, but yeah.
PuppyMillPrevention Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
wait 2.50 and hour? That's illegal... you need at least minimum wage which is like... 7$ an hour? xD Yea blue, you should be a waitress you get an ass ton of money from tips, and you don't have to work terrible hours

Kick yourself in the ass and finish those commissions!
You gotta make yourself do them. Think about the people that are waiting
checking everyday for it, whether it's on you page or in the mail. And if that's
what you've been doing and it hasn't worked, than might as well pay the person
back and apologize.

If you're getting back on track now, awesome. Cool bro~ sorry for snapping.
But if not... sloth is no excuse.
l-incoln Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2012

Good to know that you're back on track bro B)

What do you do for your job o A o? If you dont mind me asking that is haha
paskettidog Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
When you open up your plush commissions again I'll be sure to get another one
SplatLuvRamen2 Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2012
Okay, I'm confused a bit. So are you going to do commisions too? If so, I would love one. but it matters on the type of payment, like paypal or mail.
Cyber-Ace Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
planning to quit?
that sounds good because from what I hear about ur job it must suck
hummm.......maybe u could work at a cute little art and craft store (like Micheals)
I know I may sound like a kid but its only an option XD
MissKittens Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2012
Im kinda wondering >w> Which Plush is the one your happy about? XDD Or are you still having problems getting the fabric? o3o
LightMyStar Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
;A; When I get my next paycheck, I'll commision you, Blue.
That-CrazyCat Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Oh mai gawd, dat icon. x'D

Heh, honestly I think you could pull off that plan. Heck, if I were you I'd do it! For ponies, I'd personally suggest you go on etsy to post your plush, I post mine there and make them as their commissioned. This summer I've made...12 ponies ranging from 15-50$ each, it really is a great place to sell em. That, and the fees taken by the site are sooo much less than ebay!

poor blue :c i have to do a bunch of stuff too. we both need to stop being lazy bums! :U and i also have a few plushies that need to be done :P
4CW4R1UM Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2012
Plushie making must be seriously awesome, and to make money out of something you like to do must be the best! But procrastination sucks, and it hits the best of us.
