After several years of college, I'm taking some time off to work on repaying my student loans (aaahhhh!!) before going back to finish a degree in architecture. I will have to transfer to another school that offers the entire program (the University near my home only offers the Pre-Arch. Program and I've done what I can there), and moving at this time is not particularly feasible, soo. . . . I would like to get as much of my loan paid off as possible in the next year or two, which is quite a task!
Anyway, I find myself in the position of having no degree which qualifies me for a "real" job, plus I have three kids (ages 1,6 and 10) and I live in Idaho, where the wages are so poor that paying child care costs wouldn't leave me any money from a paycheck. My husband works, and while I could repay the loans on his wages, it will not be in a really timely fashion, so the intrest will add up to more.
I am a decent artist, but SUPER lazy. Art seems like the most marketable talent I've got going for me at this point, though, and I'm going to work on making art even if I have to choke it out of myself. . .
I'm wondering if anyone has some good ideas for marketing artwork, or any other good ideas for making some extra cash?
Thanks for reading!
