"Yeah, i used to love babysitting. But I just got really burned out, and I am not a very good mom to my own kids if I'm babysitting too much. You'd probably get lots of bow sales.....it's such a highly saturated business here in Utah.…"
"12 hrs a week isn't bad. I babysit two full-time and then I have a little boy a couple times a month. babysitting pay isn't very good here where it's daily pay and so many people seem to babysit. I wish I could start making clips but…"
"So yesterday a lady in my ward asked me to babysit her son 12 hours a week. Funny! She's paying pretty well, so I'm gonna do it. I can handle 12 hours.....better than the 32 hours/week I was doing while I was pregnant!"
"do you make the clips or do you get them from that other girl who you sold clips for before? I know what you mean about babysitting. It just wasn't worth it though for me to go back to work so babysitting it is!"
"becca i was just looking at your sweetjanes site and the clips are so dang cute! Love your new necklace too bye the way. I just got my computer back so I haven't been able to comment lately on your blog."

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
Becca I was wondering what you use for your grip on your clips. I made a couple the other day (for when Karington does ever get hair and for the girl I babysit) and want them to stay put!

You'd probably get lots of bow sales.....it's such a highly saturated business here in Utah. I've finally broken even....I've made back what I initially spent to get started. So now I can just relax and make & sell at my leisure. I've just tried to keep my prices really low cuz most people charge upwards of $6 or so for one flower! I saw a place in the mall the other day that was selling a headband with a bow for $9. Ridiculous!
