First for a long time I was having a hard time getting inspired to create and the idea of taking my sewing supplies out was kind of unexcited then one day I was thinking on a way to help my children to get better at school and with Christmas coming I got the idea of making a store so the girls can go and shop what they want with out me just making presents for free.
The concept is that because noting is free in real life they need to pay for the stuff they want and the way I found that works better for me was to keep a record for every 100% they get at school is a point and for every 10 100%'s I gave them a surprise, and that works really good for the last 3 years and now I change it and for every 100% they get one DC$ dollars (DarletteCraft Dollars).
On Christmas eve after our spiritual program we open our family presents that are always hand made and after that at the end I give my children a card as a present in where I explain the idea about the store and how many DC$ each one had., then we went down to my studio where I set up a store.
I made 86 articles and they shoppe 40. The store will open once a month and will have new items each time plus the left overs.
Have a nice long weekend
