Madison's Business

Madison is always looking for the next thing to do. While she is not very fond of sitting at the table with paperwork, she loves to learn through doing. She makes a lot of things to give away, but she also loves to sell them. When she learned to make pom poms for her skates, she took orders for them at the skating rink. When she learned to make slideshow videos on the computer, she asked me if she could sell some like I do.
Now, she has started making bracelets and keychains. She has stuck with this endeavor longer than she has any of the others. She really enjoys doing it and feels so great when people want to buy them. She got a great bead kit for Christmas from my brother, so that kept her going even more. I try to encourage her as much as I can. For her, it isn't as much about them money as it is finding something that people will buy and filling the orders. The little bit of money she gets for it is great, but she doesn't go on about it as much as the actual process of getting it. What a lesson in real life. I hope all of my kids will one day work in a field that they truly enjoy...for more than just the paycheck at the end of the week!

Okay...I would love a purple one to wear on prenatal days with my purple scrubs! It needs to be between 7 1/2 - 8 inches long. She can make up the cost...I trust her. :) And I will tell everyone where I got it!

How fun for Madison! I used to love doing beadwork. What an enterprising little girl.

What a neat thing for her to get into! Reilly has gone to the bead store with Troy several times and has made "phone charms" for my cell phone, as well as a necklace for herself. She loves doing beadwork and LOVES spending the time with her Papa.
