DH has seen lots of women on ebay (maybe men too, I dunno) who make pre-made scrapbook pages and auction them off. I have also seen women with websites that do custom scrapping. DH thinks I should get into this, but I am unsure. I barely get any of my own pages done anymore. But it might be fun and interesting, and an excuse to hand the baby to grandma while I do something I enjoy.

Has anyone done this? Is there a lot of business? I would probably just sell on ebay and locally if I did do this.

I commissioned Chanda (lovemyfamily) to do about 15 pages for me. She did a wonderful job and it was really neat to get ideas from someone else and see them close-up. I think Chanda really enjoyed doing them, too.

I tried starting a little business type thing and put out TONS of fliers and never got a single call! I don't know if people just can't spend extra money on stuff like this or they would just rather do it themselves??

I've thought about it but other than Disney, Sesame Street or Hello Kitty peoples tastes can be so different and hard to guess as to what would be popular.

Our thought was to work with people to make sure they like it by providing them with layout sketches and theme options etc. I also am getting really good at doing cards in mass quantities, so DH thought it would be fun for me to make custom invitations and things like that as well. If you ladies are saying that there is hardly any business, maybe I could try to promote it since I doubt I'd be swamped down. I just didn't want it to be this bigger than me thing that I'd be roping myself into.
