On setting up a sweat shop...

Of course you must know that I can't possibly make everything myself. I have plenty of free labor around the house. I only hire the best and most experienced pattern makers and cutters.

My oldest designer (age 4), created her own cupcake pattern (out of recycled boxes just like mommy does), traced it, and cut out a front and a back piece of fabric.

Then she saw something shiny and moved on to the next project. I guess that's what I get for not even paying minimum wage...

Her coworker plans to work twice as hard in half as much time so he'll still have time to do some weeding during his break.


  1. two busy, and very productive, little boys for hire! cheap!

  2. I laughed until tears ran down my face, but hey, I had some of that free labor many years ago and look what came of that! I'm looking forward to being supported in a grand fashion in my old age by all of the extra profits of THOSEGREATHOUSEWOMEN!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
