What good is having a blog if you can’t brag a little …right? Well, I’m doing just that today!
Our little princess (she will be 5 in a couple of months…can you believe that!) spent every Tuesday last summer at the Farmer’s Market in Brownstown MI. Right next to our booth was the Brownstown Animal shelter folks. They would set up a tent, bring some animals and inform folks about the shelter. Well of course, this was the princess’s favorite vendor at the market! She spent a lot of time getting to know the people that work at the shelter, some of the animal control officers and some critters.
Now that we are doing craft shows, the princess always wants to make her own product to sell. In a couple for weeks she will be selling “Reindeer Food”. She knows that this products is her “Christmas Shopping Money”. She did it last year. A manager from one of the shows she did has already called and asked if SHE will be back this year to sell her reindeer food! She was so proud to be able to buy all “her people” Christmas gifts with money she earned. You can read the post I did about this last year HERE.
She loves animals. It doesn’t matter what kind, she loves them all. She decided to make a cat toy and give 50% of her profits to the Brownstown animal shelter. She wants to make sure the animals have enough food to keep them healthy throughout the winter (her concern).
So, she worked hard and made “Catnip Puffs”,
She took $1.00 from her “spending purse” (the money she earned helping at the Farmer’s Markets) and went to the dollar store and bought a bag of pompoms. We had dried catnip and gave her the plastic bags. She put together the bags by herself. We created labels for her and she finished packaging them herself as well.
She took them to the craft show this past weekend and set them out.
She even tried to sell Santa some!
Apparently Santa didn’t have cats. LOL But, she did inform him that she will be making some food for his reindeer very soon!
Teaching her about giving back has been a very important thing for us. For her, it is only natural because it is the way she has been taught from the get go of her life. To know that her heart is generous and giving is so amazingly special and beautiful.
I cannot even begin to tell you how much we love and respect this little girl! We are just so proud of her!
She sold 75% of her product this day! You go Sweetheart!!
Tonight we will be at the Orchard Clubhouse in Carleton, MI
It will be a fun craft show from 5:00 – 9:00 pm.
