Thanks Colie,

Thank you for your hard work, effort, and kindness in posting a list that you paid for. It is much appreciated. I am new to WAHM.com and it a wonderful site. I am a new mother, married, and full time college student. My husband works and is also a full time student so life has been hectic. Neither of us have to the time or energy to find a job, or a second job in my husband's case. I feel really bad not working, and my family having to rely on my husband's 30 hour a week pay check for the time being, but I couldn't possibly go get a job or we'd have no one to watch our child and my school work would suffer. I love crafts and hopefully your narrowed down list will help me help my husband in providing for our family and continuing our educations. Your Kindness is greatly appreciated. I'll keep you guys updated on how my search goes and, just like Chers, I'll let you guys know if any of these

I haven't tried it yet, but I found some information online about Angelic Creations it's in an article on this website:
http://www.maximonline.com/grit/articles/article_312.html

The Angelic Creations part is about 1/3 down the page, is a long article, so here's an excerpt:

"This is the game plan: To construct my own upper-scale country angels, I must purchase the materials directly from the little bastards at the Angelic Creations company for an additional $16. Once I receive the materials, Iíll be able to construct five horrific angels, and if my little beauties are up to upper-scale- country-angel standards, Iíll receive a check for $25. (If theyíre rejected, I must pay $3 to have the creepy angels returned to me.)"

The article is entertaining, it's a research study that a magazine did on various work-at-home opportunities.

Hydra- That web site was hillarious...I needed a good laugh after my day today...THANK YOU

I have crafted for Valeries Hattery I crafted 12 potpurri hats. I have not sent them in yet I will do that tommorrow but as the angelic angels you have to buy your materials plus pay for the kit so you end up making about $.50 cents I think the company is the same. I will let you all know what happens with the hats.

Eileen
