My mother has given me loads of advice of the course of my life. Some has fallen on deaf ears,...ok, ok, most of it. But some has been truly a goldmine of knowledge.
1 such piece of advice she told me was...
" Find what you love most in this world,
then find a way to make money doing it! "
That little gem still sits with me.
But I'm getting ahead of myself....onto the blog!
Mention the word, PlayDough to my mother and she will go into a 30 minute babble about how I, as a young child( 6-8 yrs. old) used to make the most wonderful miniature food with my PlayDough. Bacon & Eggs, ice cream, hamburgers, and my favorite, birthday cake. I really couldn't tell you why I've always had a love an fascination with making these little mini goodies. But, what I can tell you is that the love has never died. When I see a container of Playdough, I light up & giggle like a 3 yr. old.
My daughter, who just turned 10 has really been into these miniature food jewelry pieces lately. I bought a necklace for her with a smiling marshmallow and the moment I saw it, all those giddy feelings came back in a "whoosh"
I quickly found out what type of clay was used, etc...and ran to my nearest Michael's . The clay is pretty cheap, so you know I had to buy just about every color they make....yeah, no one can ever complain about me doing a half-ass way of anything. It's either all or nothing with me LOL
I had a bit of down time this morning, so I pulled out the clay with my daughter eagerly peering over my shoulder. As per her request, this what I made for her.
It was pure innocent joy that I felt while making these.
Somehow, I know that a pile of these gems will grow quite rapidly, and with that, perhaps a new business will bloom?
My mother's words quickly ran back into my head, and I couldn't help but think...
Should I sell these?
What do YOU think?
