A few months before this camping trip, Marlin decided that she wanted to make jewelry to bring and sell. So she sat and spent hours designing and creating really pretty necklaces and some earrings. As the camping trip approached, her confidence began to waiver. She was worried that nothing would sell, and nobody would really like it.
I encouraged her to bring it, and then see if she wanted to do once she was comfortable there.
On one particular night, she said that she was ready to bust out her wares.
She laid out all of her stuff on a blanket and waited.
The kids were all busy running around and did not really notice her. So I snuck over to Jean and told her of Marlin's intentions and asked if we could announce something. Luckily it was a music themed night, and so there was a microphone. After the mention of jewelry was made,
she had quite a crowd!
She was beaming!
Her self confidence, and cash flow were growing visibly.
She learned so many things in that half hour, it was outstanding.
