My Spare Time

many of you know that I have recently become a "House Mom." i don't know why i capitalized it, or why i put it in quotes. anyway, this upcoming year is going to be quite challenging for jeffrey and i, financially. we are going from 2 full-time incomes, to ZERO full-time incomes. yikes. mom, can you keep buying sofia's clothes, please?

i have been thinking about starting to do something productive with my spare time...well, something that i can make money off of. for example, my friend julia-the furniture lady. or my friend, sarah-the sewing/headband lady. i mean, these women are AMAZING. but, i can't sew a button, and my furniture would be a joke. so, what am i good at? weirdly enough, making   i-movies. i've made one of sofia, one for our wedding, one for our one year anniversary, also for my 6th grade class, and family reunions, etc. i had to take technology classes while teaching, and they taught me a lot about i-movie.

so, i want your sincere opinion. i would love to work with photographers and have this be part of a package deal they sell. i'm going to put an example of a quick i-movie i put together of our wedding. would you want one of these as part of a package deal with your professional wedding pictures? am i being dumb here, or could i really do this?? how/where do i even get started?

disclaimer. beware ruiz, zelayas, cranes, stephensons, and wrights...lots of pics of you. my apologies. siweks...i don't know why jared didn't take many of you. oops.

  1. I say YES! I would have loved something like this but it was always out of our price range. One thing to think about...maybe become a "videographer" you know take videos of their wedding day and compile that. More than pictures in video form I wish we had a really amazing "home video" of our wedding. Maybe talk to Heather for ideas. :) Can't wait to see what you do!

  2. If I ever get married, I'll pay you to put together something like this! It looks very professional, not cheesy like some turn out. I hope you can find a way to make it work! Love ya :)

  3. I agree! I would have loved something like this of our wedding and I like the idea that Julia had of taking some video too. How much are you thinking of charging? Maybe I can have you do one of these with the pictures I have of my wedding and I can give it to Michael (actually more for me) as an anniversary gift? I love you Jackie!!! You're super creative...I just look at other people's blogs and envy their creativity. : )

  4. I'm with Nora! How much are you charging? I love your video, it's beautiful!! And what is the first song?? You have always been so talented, I hope this works out for you! I'd email some photographers in your area to see if they'd like to set something up with you!

  7. You should do it, people would love it!! Another thing I would pay you for, is singing lessons. Well maybe not for me, because it safe to say its a little to late for me. But I would enroll my little girl if you offered voice lessons. And if you offered tutoring I would pay you for that too, since I am sure you were a wonderful school teacher. And..... I would pay you for every other talent you have Jackie, because you are so talented. I hope you video works out. It would be such a fun and creative outlet.

  8. Apologies for my spelling and grammatical errors. I find that it's hard to do, when my little boy is crawling all over me :/

  9. Amazing! That video looked fantastic. I think you do have a talent for it, if I ever had the chance to work with you I would love it! When we have money someday I will pay you to do some videos of our family. Keep sharing!
