Craftspeople need not depend on craft fairs and weekend flea markets to exhibit their creations. The internet has opened the floodgates for home based business opening up the global marketplace. Now creative mums can run their crafts business from the comforts of their homes without having to compromise on their household duties. Combining crafts and motherhood is could is fun. With women having children later in their life, brings more experience and confidence in them to handle a business venture. For moms with younger children planning is a must.

Moms who are interested in arts and crafts business need to create their own unique style. Never show desperation and undersell your products. Moms should understand that it is a part time role as an entrepreneur and should learn to say no when more order come their way, and they do not have the time or resources to complete them. It is good to avoid orders when it is hectic instead of disappointing customers. Another good idea would be to buy time but ensure you stick to the deadlines. Moms should realise that organising is the key to not only at your arts and crafts studio but also at home. Do not forget that household chores and motherly duties have to be checked. Keeping a checklist for the day helps organise both household and business chores. Tick off items that you have completed to give you a clear idea of what to do next.
