Twenty years from now when we look back on the turn of the second decade of this century, a lot of people will have fond memories of their “side hustle”.
Sure people have always had hobbies and things to do, but the isolation of the last two years has rocketed home based side hustles. Some created web based companies or simply learned to use the web. Still, others took an existing hobby and were able to invest in it. More time, more creativity, leads to more things being created. I know this because my brother is one such person.
As a front line worker, his affinity for woodworking comes from engaging a different part of his brain to destress from a busy day, let alone a pandemic. We can all relate to the need to do that, as most of us have increased the size of our gardens, or number of plants to escape our new routine.
Having a creative outlet is important for people. My brother is also the DIY type who finished his own basement and did all the carpentry and drywall by himself. But something was still missing. Until he turned his attention to charcuterie and cutting boards. All of a sudden, friends and co-workers are lining up for his side hustle. We have been selling his creations at the farmstand all summer. He has responded with new designs and shapes and my favourite, by artistically weaving epoxy through walnut to produce the most talked about item in the kitchen.
Day 11 of our 24 days of giveaways is one of JZN Woodworx finest walnut charcuterie boards. It is 30cm wide and almost 50 cm long. And can be used for display or serving. Sure it’s conditioned for cutting but who would do such a thing…
For a chance to win leave a comment below. In your message, share your side hustle, even a website if you have one, or someone else’s side hustle that you think is an amazing creation, anything really, as long as it puts a smile on everybody’s face. EASY. This giveaway is open to anyone with a Canadian shipping address. This Giveaway is open until Sunday night December 19th at Midnight PT.

My side hustle is @scissorscreekflowers. A small urban flower farm in the heart of my hometown. My real dream though is to write a book someday… I am always trying new things, jotting down ideas, developing story lines, creating sketches and taking pictures like crazy in the hopes that a great book idea will develop.

No side hustle but like to include the link to Roam Flora which is an off the grid solar powered flower farm on the edge of Ottawa, Ontario.
They sell dahlia tubers, tulip bulbs, honey & pottery. You can also buy fresh cut flowers in the summer.

I don’t have an official side hustle, but if I did it would be to paint commission pieces – especially flowers and landscapes.

My side hustle is Urban Inspired co. handmade on Instagram… I love making things, it’s been an outlet for me from my nursing job, and especially has been during a pandemic… ♥️
