Crafting for Extra Income or to Just Have Fun

Either way, crafting for extra income or just to have fun, Chalk Couture has the solution.  Personally, I started out as a curious crafter myself, but that soon changed. When I realized how simple and fun the process is, my life changed!

All three of my upline Chalk Couture sponsors are definite full-timers with huge teams. I watched all of their chalking videos and thought about crafting for extra income and maybe make enough to pay for my own crafting habit. Then, I began looking at the upline team numbers and was computing the dollar signs in my head. (That’s NEVER good math for me… ha!) The numbers I ciphered just didn’t seem real. Surely I must be forgetting something.

It wasn’t too long before I decided that maybe… just maybe… I COULD bring in extra money. My motivating quest being that I could purchase all. the. stuff. — you know….. more crafting toys AND maybe get to travel a bit. The CV stuff sort of threw a wet blanket on the travel for now, but I do see some adventures in my near future.

Our newest catalog just launched, as did our new Designer Starter Kit. I now have a NEW ALL-TIME FAV transfer that is included in this newest kit and I am super excited to share it with EVERYone.

 

 ~Tidbits about our Team Culture~

Crafting for Extra Income

If you like to make your own home decor and gifts, we embrace you as a Hobbyist ‘Sister’ Designer…. someone who just wants to buy at our discount (up to 40%) and make all.the.things.

Maybe you already have a craft business and sell on etsy or at vendor events. We embrace you as a Sister Designer!  If building a TEAM of like-minded crafty-peeps sounds intriguing, you will find Sister Designers marching right alongside you. Be ready to receive plenty of props and accolades from your new Chalk Sisters while on your journey to success.

And remember…..

Whichever ‘title’ fits you, just know you are WELCOMED into our TEAM and treasured!

Handmade Onesies are Simply Easier with Chalk Couture

Have you ever given a handmade onesie as a gift? I have many times. I love it so much, that I once even set up a onesie making table at a baby shower. I spent hours designing and cutting heat transfer vinyl,all followed by the tedious weeding process. The leftover weeded parts filled my wastebasket. It always annoyed me all of the waste that I knew would eventually hit the landfill. I kept hoping for a better way for me, as a hobbyist, to make beautiful gifts with less impact on the environment AND a much simpler process.
In walks…Chalk Couture! A complete solution to my quandary.
Chalk Couture Chalkology Inks presents in 24 beautiful shades of creamy goodness. The ink glides so smoothly through our silkscreen transfers…AND with so many wonderful transfer designs from which to choose, each onesie is unique as a simple expression of your creativity. The entire process is quick and simple. Your handmade onesie can be ready in less than 15 minutes.

Handmade Onesies are Easy-Peasy!

I have a true fascination with handmade onesies. My two young grandbabies are now out of the onesie phase of their lives, so look for opportunities to create them. Come summer there will be plenty of baby showers invitations and I can hardly wait.

Secret Elf or Secret Santa?

Secret Elf or Secret Santa? It is that time of the year when we draw names for a fun gift exchange with coworkers, sorority sisters, or maybe even family members.  No matter what you call your gifting festivities, there is always plenty of fun to be had. (Be sure to check out your free Secret Elf Gift at the bottom of the page.)

I have participated in many secret sister swaps that lasted for the entire month of December where “little surprises” were left for the recipient on multiple days. That can be fun, but it also can make a dent in your pocketbook. To be honest, being creative for several days a week kind of wears me out. (no… I am NOT a Mrs. Scrooge… just not always as creative in that respect)

How does YOUR Secret Elf Gift Exchange roll?

The Secret Elf or Secret Santa exchanges that I prefer begin with a questionnaire being filled out by all participants. After being sealed up in envelopes. each of us draws one of the envelopes. Personally, I like having suggestions from my Secret Elf recipient, especially if they are not a DIY enthusiast or crafter. (‘cuz you KNOW I have that crafty gal covered, right?)

This seems like a great time to add that I can sure help you with the crafters on YOUR list!!! (shameless plug here)
