Craft business or Product business

I am in a quandary about which route to take with my creative business. I have many party kits, kid crafts, books and games that I want to develop. Should I make and sell them as crafts or turn them into products and sell them ? I know with products you get to work once and get paid for more and for crafts you can only get paid once. To make my ideas into products would cost more than I have so is it okay to sell them as crafts first to get the money to develop them into products?

What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
stay at home mom, that will be learning graphic design so that I can then go on to pursue my product development of books, games and toys.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I have made toys for my kids and I want to develop them for others. I want to make a business and develop, market, and sell the products. Design them myself and create my own website and games to download.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I want to pursue graphic design
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I love ideas. I have many ideas for creative party games and I am good at crafts such as scrap booking and altered art. My friends are always looking to me for party ideas, family fun ideas, decorating ideas and home ade presents for kids.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?

If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:
In a few years I will be selling products for children, novelty books and toys that I will develop one at a time. I am also going to make my own website and have party game ideas on it and printable game products for sale.

Hi Thriftartist. I just you post from FBM group from last month about breaking free from poverty. I'm just wondering how you are doing and hoping you've made any progress toward your goals. A little each day is enough to keep you motivated. Please stay encouraged and in the Word. God bless. ~ Jason

As a graphic Artist, I would love your opinion of my SimmTrace device, and whether you think Graphic Artists would find it useful.

Hope your art keeps growing brother! Hey, I wanted to welcome you to 48days.net. It's a pretty great place to learn and connect with other people who are interested in making their future better instead of just expecting it to become better on its own. I'm the host of a group called FREE TECH TOOLS (yeah, it's really free stuff) so if you'd like to join that just look under the GROUPS tab on any 48days.net page.

Anyway, welcome and let me know if I can help with anything in regards to 48days.net or anything technology related.

There's also a tutorial on my main page on how to change your picture so it's not a sock monkey :)

Blessings on your day - Andy "Mr. Free Tech" Traub
