Yes, I work and live completely off what I make as a WAHM. I have been running this incarnation of the business since 1986 and it has supported me and my kids ever since. We have had some good and bad years, but it has been relatively steady, and my dh took early retirment in 1994 to join me in the business and so he could spend more time with dd when she was an infant.<br>
I would like to be able to support us off of what I make with my own designs, but I haven't gotten to that point, yet. You can see my website - it's my homepage link and my siggy links to my own designs. Feel free to pm me if you have any questions. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

We can't live off of it, meaning Dh not working. BUT I make more being a WAHM than I every did working outside the house. If I didn't WAHM I'd have to get another job since Dh couldn't support us all by himself. If there is an emergency I am able to support the family for a very short period of time.

I like that attitude! I am right there with you. Now that I am writing articles I am almost there!

<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/yeahthat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yeah that">: Although we have. When we moved to a new province a year ago it was my income and mine alone that supported us for the 4-6 months it took for DH to find a new job. My income could still pay the bills, but we'd have nothing left over for other things we want, so we still choose to have 2 incomes coming in. We want DD to be in a Montessori school close to home, we want the freedom and flexibility of weekends off, long weekends and the ability to be available for our kids at a moment's notice, so I cut back a lot. I'm a big believer in being prepared, however, so *if* we had one income again (ie. just mine) we could survive comfortably. With or without DH. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
