Odd Job Fun!

I'm starting with these few items first as I have a lot of other listings in the works.  This blog is all about finding fun stuff to do for extra spending money, so here's one of the things that I love to do!!

Meat Cake!

5 year old presents

Lego Indiana Jones with WII remotes

I started with this Lego one for my son and then moved on from there.  Several of my friends started requesting cakes for their kids and I have been having a blast with it since then.  I framed my first $20 bill instead of spending it.  Even gave my kitchen a bakery name (patent pending!)  SO, this is my first odd job listing.  This is something I love doing.  From my friends, I don't like taking money, but, they threw it at me, so, I'm not complaining!  It's a little "me" money! 
When you find something that you love and then you can make some "cha-ching" off of it - start marketing yourself!  I went to MAMAPEDIA and listed myself locally as a cake maker!  Haven't received any calls off of it yet, but, you never know!  I know word of mouth is a big deal - it's how my next Odd Job listing got me a position that I hope to keep for years to come!  The 5 year old birthday presents cakes got me an instant order from the party.  I especially loved that the woman requested my chocolate cake (my new favorite homemade recipe)
Hey!  If you live near central LONG ISLAND or know someone who does and want a specialty cake,  you can let me know right here and we'll get in touch.  I have tons of ideas and cake forms and time.  Give me a chance and I'll give you a memory.
Happy Friday Everyone and thanks for reading!

Day One and another Introduction!

So, I am always looking for something to do.  I am a SAHM to 2 wonderful little men and love hanging out with my awesome husband.  I teach piano at my home and have been teaching for 20 years (minus 3-4 months)  I bake cakes too.  Love making fancy cakes by my design.  Don’t know where that’ll take me yet.  I also started a Mommy blog ( and put a few sponsors on there to make a couple of bucks.  But, more and more I see more moms being product reviewers and blogging about items and decided, this is the way to get started.
Now, I’m going to completely overwhelm myself again by doing countless hours of online research to get myself involved.  I don’t want to do couponing and the like.  I want to review and giveaway stuff.  There are tons of couponers out there, and bless them, they rock.   Slowly, I’ll be taking the time to add them into their own sub-category here as well.  It’s amazing the types of relationships you can develop with these women on our day to day conversations and how much you get to know about them.
That’s why I’m hoping to develop a whole other kind of blog that involves everyone, not just moms (even though, we do totally rock) and gets a great following.  Join along with me as I discover this wonderful world of blogging product reviews!
