Megan’s Mutt Munchies 16 years later

When you 9 1/2 year old tells you she wants to start her own business and talks a local businessman into giving her a space in his business, you explain all of the hard work, dedication and responsibilities it will involve, then you roll up your selves and help her. Megan's Mutt Munchies 2015 948

The idea came from an article in American Girl Magazine about making things to  raise money. MMM American Girl 2Then you start bainstorming about names….. (I am so thankful she went with Megan’s Mutt Munchies)MMM name options

You make a brochureOriginal MMM flier 2000After a “few” short years she is ready to go to college, and you realize you will be making dog treats, because she does have a following and loyal customers (not to mention your own dogs). She earns a degree in Advertising and Marketing (as well as Asian Studies) and comes back to rebrand, market and keep the business going stronger than ever. Oh, then you hear about a dog treat bakery that has gone out of business, so you buy thier equiptment and send out a press release. The Winston-Salem Journal visits, and next thing you know yuo are on the cover of the business section.2016-01-10 09.44.20_resized

You put all of those memories in a frame, then get back to creating and baking. MMM framed

Trainers vs. Crafters!

Some trainers give their clients shirts to wear, and some clients give them back! I mean, why wear a shirt when you can turn it into a wall hanging?

Merry Christmas

As we all hustle and bustle around, take a few moments to enjoy the season, and all that it has to offer!.

Each year I insist on a “real” tree, a freshly cut, formerly live evergreen Christmas Tree. One of the reasons, is so I can use the trimmed branches throughout the house and share that fresh evergreen smell.

This year, I ran out of containers and vases…..

To help ease your pain…in the back that is.

Rice bags are a wonderful thing. They come in sets of two coordinating fabrics.

Rice Bags

Keep one in the freezer, pop the other in the microwave for 30 seconds -3 minutes. Use the heated one until it cools – on your back, or where your muscles ache. Then use the cold one. Alternate back and forth. They measure about 20″ long and are filled with rice.

Rice Bags 2I’m not a doctor, but they do help with muscle aches (the heated one can also warm your feet on a chilly night!)

Available in assorted colors. $15.00 a set of two.

Aprons for an Angel (or two)

Lanie Pope and Miss Angel 2When you get a message from one of your favorite customers (Angela Nolfo of Miss Angel’s Heavenly Pies) you never know where it will lead. The message last week lead to two very special aprons designed and stitched during Mount Airy’s Autumn Leaves Festival for Angela and WXII Weather person Lanie Pope to wear while making pies and creating baking magic.

Seeing these pictures just makes me smile! Thank you Angela for keeping Wendy Jane Creations in mind to make this moment special.
