Ya, for example, I know one inveterate fisherman who throughout all the life very much liked to fish. Also this hobby reached large wholesale shop of fishing goods of own production and boat service … I will tell about how such hobby as handwork, can become lifework.
In Russia there lives the great number of talented people. These people are unique, they express the feelings and thoughts, creating objects of different function. Be it an interior subject, clothes, an accessory or a picture - it is unimportant. The main thing, these things are created with heat, love and care of the author.

But not each creative person is able to realize the works created by the hands. Sometimes it is difficult for masters to advertize and the more so to sell the creations. Here several useful tips for those who experience difficulties in this case:
Be registered on the websites which are engaged in sale of handwork and design things.
do not regret time and forces for the good photo of the works. Very important role is played by giving of an author`s product. (Let`s say you cook well, but if the dish is given anyhow, it at once loses the look, and it does not getting hungry.)
Get the LJ or the blog, and it is better a little, and periodically spread the works there. Social networks - a good method of customer acquisition and untwisting of the name, especially for beginners.
Place the blog in a news line of rss of the best design blogs.
do not underestimate and do not overstate the cost of the work. Expose such price that it was pleasant also to you, and the buyer. If to expose cut prices, then your hobby on which it would be desirable to earn additionally will turn into a burden.
