Everything Handmade


Once upon a time there was a little girl who dreamed of making a living doing only the things she loves to do. For years she tried to decide on only one thing. Should she be an actress? A writer? A teacher? Should she do something crafty and creative? The poor little girl could not find one single thing that made her happy. She DID find MANY things that did. She couldn’t possibly do ALL of the things that made her happy, could she?

What to do? What to do?

“Get a real job,” people told her, but the little girl saw just how unhappy those people with “real” jobs were and she did not wish that kind of life for herself. Over the years she tried to follow the path that others before her had followed and she was always left feeling sad and empty. She grew and had children of her own and wished for them to see that life was not just about survival but about true happiness. How could she show them something that she was not doing for herself?

One day, she decided that she had had enough. She was going to follow her bliss. So that same little girl decided to do ALL of the things that made her happy. She was an actress, a writer, a teacher AND she gleefully made beautiful little soaps with her own two hands.
And she lived happily ever after.
