There’s this little idea about a home dessert business that’s been bouncing around in my head. I’m a little scared about the whole thing, but have realized how many of my friends and relatives have done their own thing and done it well.
Here are a few:
Ryan’s mom, Karen, has a website (http://maddiekaycreations.bigcartel.com/ )where she sells home-crafted pieces of decor, apparel, and these cute cute dolls:
If you go there, you’ll notice that there is an Emma doll and a Jane doll, that look a little bit like them! My mother was here at Christmas when they opened their dolls and was commenting on how well made and darling they were. Go check them out for a sweet present for a little girl you know.
Randi is my friend and photographer extraordinaire. Here are a few of my own family and here is her website where you can see more of her work: http://mphotoforyou.blogspot.com/ (It was actually on a walk with her that we started discussing what I could do with my love of cooking.)
Jessica A. (pictured in almost every picture of my last post) did the amazing—at least to me: SHE WROTE AND PUBLISHED HER OWN BOOK. I’m a little in awe of her all the time, but this one just proves her determination and talent.

My aunt Stacy (one of those funny Mormon your-mom-was-pregnant-when-your-Grandma-was stories) make most of the pretty flowers and ribbons that Faith wore her first year of life.
They are great baby gifts (and they aren’t all that big). Check out : http://www.theprettypetal.com/.
So, with all those good examples of women using their creativity and diligence to express themselves…should I go for it, or what?
