Ladybug Tea Party

After much thought I think i've decided to start start selling some of my more detailed tutorials, and today I thought i'd show you one of them that I hope to have finished soon :D. I have several more in the works and a few more in my head waiting to get out, lol. Some of them will be more detailed cupcake toppers and some will just be miniatures that I love to make.

This has been kind of a difficult decision though, because I know that without the help of all of the free information that i've found on the internet, I wouldn't know as much as I do today about the art of caking. That being said i'm a stay-at home mom and my wonderful hubby works 2 jobs to keep it that way. So i'm always trying to come up with ideas to bring money in and still be able to stay home with my girls while taking some of the pressure off of him, and these tutorials do take time! So I figured why not use my talent and bring some much needed income into our household while providing all of you lovely people with some cool tutorials!

Let me know what you think by voting over on the right hand side! This one will run around $5 american dollars and will include the tea set and pastries. I'm hoping to have it up in the next month or so!

But don't worry the tuesday toppers will stay free!!

  2. I think it is a great idea. Look at hoe Donna Dewberry got started. There are also ladies who do seminars in their homes or at an inexpensive location. You oculd always doa tutorial weekend once and a while.

  7. I think it is a great idea to sell your tutorials. I am in the same situation you are, always trying to find a way to make money. I don't have the time sometimes to look in books for step by step instructions on cake topper, I will be your first client. Can we use Pay Pal account to pay?

  8. I know what you mean about trying to cut costs and bring in more income! I love your tutorials and I am with you all the way! If you have to charge for some, then so be it! It is your time that you are spending making these, and time away from your family, so why shouldn't you get something monetary out of it! You go girl!!! I look forward to seeing the first tutorial that you have for sale and I will definitely be buying it!. Oh ya, PayPal would be awesome that way you get payment right away, and we get the tutorial right away :-) It`s win win ..... haha
