Kathy’s comment on my last post about taking up busking got me thinking. Now, the only way I could make money busking is by people to paying me to shut up. I am so NOT musical. But I have a lot of drawings I’ve done over the past year just sitting in sketch books. I am a bit fan of the Etsy site but hadn’t thought about becoming a seller until yesterday.
I’ve scanned some of my drawings and will put them up on the site next week after I check out how much to charge for postage. Meanwhile I’ve posted them up on facebook (friends only).
Meanwhile, I’ve already *made* money out of this venture already, in a roundabout, topsy-turvy way: when I opened up my scanner to scan my drawings, I found OMG!!!! MY PASSPORT!
I’d totally forgotten I’d had to scan it because I needed a police clearance for my job in Canberra (actually I remembered scanning it but thought I’d done it for another job ages ago… ). Stupid but happy – that describes me perfectly tonight.
That’s like over $300 in lost fees and new passport fees I won’t have to pay. Happy Valentine’s Day to me – I’ll take my passport over flowers from dude anyday. Flowers die but a passport lasts for … like 10 years, and can take me amazing places 🙂
