Self Employed online bead sales
7 - 21 Days, 3 - 6 Weeks

We are an active, healthy Montana couple who neither smoke nor drink. I sell beads on-line (MonkeyshineBeads on Etsy) and am in my 6th year of sales. Check out my site and review if you would like :))  My husband is retired. We own our home and take pride in it, as we would yours. We are responsible, honest, clean, trustworthy, and can provide excellent references as well as background checks.

My husband previously raised pure-bred dogs, and since we have been married we have fostered animals from the local humane society. We are both animal lovers!  We have a 7 year old cat who thinks she is the Queen of the Universe, and of course we treat her as such. We have friends who care for her when we travel.

We understand that animals have schedules and we would follow your instructions to minimize any disruptions to your pets. We enjoy being with animals and would shower lots of love and affection on them. I am an avid gardener and no stranger to hard work.

Our availability right now revolves around my work schedule and some commitments to my mother and her doctor schedules.  But we have lots of flexibility. We prefer to travel in late fall, winter, and spring -- we do enjoy our Montana summers!

We love to visit local museums and sites, but we would generally not be gone more than a few hours at a time. We do not go out in the evenings but enjoy being settled in by late afternoons.
