*This is a crossover post from my personal blog so if you read both I apologize that you are seeing this for a second time!!
A few months ago I found myself in desperate need of some extra income to pay off some medical bills and for costly prescriptions that my insurance doesn't cover. I remember praying that if God would provide another job for me, I would be a faithful servant and do the work required.
A co-worker had given me the number of two companies she tutors for, but I had hesitated to call. I knew that tutoring after school would keep me away from home and wipe out the little time I have with my husband. (Our schedules don't always line up so great.) Around the same time another co-worker of mine suggested I take some of my ideas and make my own units on TPT, which I honestly hadn't given much thought to before. But she believed in my creativity and drive, and it was the push I needed to get started.
Three months later I just received my first check from TPT to the sweet tune of $2,001. I know compared to a lot of you that is a drop in the bucket, but not only is it more than I ever thought I would make..... it's more than I needed to cover the bills and prescriptions! So instead of comparing myself to others I am going to thank God for providing for us in a difficult situation.
I LOVE making units for TPT. It is time consuming, and a LOT of work. But it's work I can do at home. While watching TV with my husband, or even playing fetch with my dogs. In all honesty, at the end of a long day, it's kind of nice to sit down and put my creative side to work.
For all of you who have supported me, my store and my blog. THANK YOU. From the bottom of my heart. You may never know just how much this means to my family. <3
