Kindness at the Craft Show
I have experienced plenty of kindness in my life, so I will get this ball rolling. Recently, at my second craft show (after an incredibly disheartening first craft show) I fell in love with the products at the booth across from me. From end to end the table was covered with clothes for babies and toddlers that were SO cute, the fact that I have no kids was not enough of a deterrent for me to not buy them. One particular lace ruffled romper had me trying to figure out how I could get a child of my own, or at least borrow one immediately!
There were also these fabulous chunky bead necklaces that somehow were able to stand out as uniquely fabulous in an environment filled with every kind of jewelry imaginable.
After taking in all the cuteness and class in one spot, I needed to find out who was responsible. It turns out it was Jennifer Puckett, Owner and Creator of Mon Petit Designs. Her presentation was so put together I assumed I was looking at the Mary Kay of kids clothes. I was wrong, Mon Petit Designs are handmade by one sweet woman with an eye for beauty and a facebook page with well over 2,000 likes. Once I realized that, I knew I was looking at someone who was succeeding on a path that I had barely just discovered and I wanted to know exactly how she did it. I imagine that in a place so full of competition that the secrets to success would be heavily guarded. Once again, Jennifer proved my assumptions wrong. She was absolutely willing to shine a light into my darkness and give me her hard earned tips and tools of the trade. She told me what worked for her and what didn’t and she has been at this for more than a few years, so her advice is just absolutely golden. I was at a place where I knew what I wanted to do, but had no idea how to do it. She still has a lot to teach me, but her willingness to encourage and educate me in what worked for her is an incredible kindness that I deeply appreciate and its just one more example of the fact that I absolutely cannot exist without the support of the community. Thanks Jennifer! Mon Petit Designs
