Job Description
Work from home positions for online ESL Tutors. This is an awesome job for qualified applicants: You MUST have a Bachelor’s Degree (any field is fine), and literally enjoy working with children and have done so in some capacity for around a period of one year.  (It has been a great job for me so that I could stay home with my kids). You make your own hours every week and can work as much or as little as you need, which is as close to "freedom" as you can get with a job especially one like this that pays well and offers good incentives. You can literally go to your job in your pajamas, I have and do. :) You will also need an internet and a computer with a webcam.

Tutor ESL online for 25-28 minute classes with Chinese students one-on-one.

Bachelor's Degree, 1 year of teaching (in varying capacities), Tech Requirements: Desktop or Laptop with a fast internet connection and audio/video capability

Additional Information
Work from home online opportunity for qualified applicants. VIPKID is a top 5 Work-from-Home company as Rated By Forbes Magazine & Women's Day. Sponsored by Kobe Bryant. I am a VIPKID teacher / recruiter for VIPKID and would love to help you become an ESL Teacher as well. We are experiencing unprecedented growth in Chinese students who need online tutors to fit into their schedules, so we are currently trying to meet the demand by hiring thousands more teachers. You MUST have a Bachelor's Degree and teaching in some capacity (I can talk to you more about this). My Bachelor's was NOT in teaching (Human Development and Family Studies) NOR was I a professional teacher (I've volunteered as a tutor in my kids classes at school, taught cub scouts, taught young women, and have my own kids so that qualified me in their eyes!). I am in my 2nd contract with them. If you have these qualifications, please text or call me at the contact information below. I would love to help you through the hiring process - this has been a great stay at home job for me and many others. This is a GREAT job. We have teachers from all backgrounds and experience levels, so don't be intimidated.

Heart Banner

I LOVE felt.....fitting for Valentine's Day. For this banner I bought several different colors of felt. I took a marker and drew hearts on the fabric all different sizes but similar.  I then doubled the fabric over (so I could cut two hearts at once)and cut them out by hand.  After I had them cut I took them to my sewing machine. Placing one heart after another, I sewed down the middle.  Creating a long line of hearts.  Enjoy!

Spread the Love

Valentines day is approaching. One quick decoration is my Holiday Kisses cup.
Grab a white bowl, cup, jar  or mug.  You can get one like this at Ikea.  Use a silhouette machine or some other vinyl cutting machine and cut out your words in red (or pink). I like red because I can use this for Christmas!
Fill with the candy of your choice.  Maybe chocolate kisses??
Happy Valentines Day!

Work at Home

If you are looking for a job working from home....this is a great job.  VIPKID!

You teach English online to students in China.  You do need to have some schooling but a teaching degree is not required. It took me about two weeks to interview and train and I was off and teaching.  It took me a couple of weeks to get a full week of students scheduled.  Let me know if you need any more advice or tips with you interview or when you start teaching!! VIPKID

I have been working with them for over two months.  If you don't mind some early mornings, which works great for me, you should look into it!  You can also work Weekends (morning and evenings).

Painted Chandelier

I am following the trend and painting my chandelier.  Originally I was going to go with a basic color...silver or black.  I found this paint color (Jamaican Sea) and loved it.


Up close
I took all the crystal off and painted it using a craft sponge brush.
Let the paint dry and put back the crystal.
That simple!!

Back To School Backpacks

Kids are already in school.  I remember as a child summers going so fast, it hasn't changed as an adult.  I love that they are in school, but I miss them.
For Backpacks this year we went to DownEastHome
They have these great canvas backpacks and lunch boxes that are seconds only because a company has made a mistake on monogramming. 
I took some scrap fabric and used my silhouette machine to cut out my kids names and initials.  You have to buy the fabric blade for this, but I love to use fabric so it was a no brainer when I bought it.
  1. Iron on interfacing.
  2. Cut out pattern with machine.
  3. Iron on fabric
  4. I hand stitched it to give a little extra strength.
  5. You're done!

Family Home Evening Chalk Board

FHE Chalk Board
I have wanted to create this for my family for awhile and finally got around to it.
I found an old piece of wood in our garage from other projects.
Instructions for chalk board paint:
1/2 cup acrylic paint (any color)
1 tablespoon un-sanded grout
I mixed them together with disposable plastic cup and spoon.  I used a sponge brush to paint with.  Easy clean up.  The paint can dry quickly.  I doubled the batch and painted this piece front and back with two coats and still had some left over for my daughter to paint a smaller board.
While the paint dried I used my Silhouette machine to cut out the white vinyl for the lettering.
After the paint was dry, I placed my vinyl on the painted surface. 
Next take a piece of chalk and rub it all around the painted surface and rub off the excess chalk with a paper towel.  Done!
This was so much fun and really took less time then I expected!
