Every now and then you have an experience that helps you remember what it feels like to be so confident in your ideas, even if they sound a bit crazy! And how important it is to listen and give encouragement to keep the ideas coming. While I was working at my booth at Knott’s Merry Farm’s Christmas Crafts Village yesterday, a little boy who was around 9 years old came over to see what I was selling. He was very polite, complimenting me on the candles and letting me know how much he loved the scents. He told me I did a great job making the candles smell great. He was so adorable.
We were having a great conversation and he says “Hey, I just thought of a great product idea for you! You should make a candle that smells like turkey - you know for Thanksgiving!” I told him I had not heard of a candle fragrance like that, but I would look into it. He then said, “Oh, and you should make a mashed potato one too! That way you can make the house smell like Thanksgiving dinner!” He had a huge smile on his face, he was so proud that he was coming up with new scents for me to try. I thanked him for the ideas and he walked away with a satisfied look on his face just knowing he came up with a perfect idea. I think he is going to be very successful making interesting products someday! So, I’m off to research the turkey and mashed potato scents! :)
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! And who knows maybe there will be candles soon that make your house smell like Thanksgiving dinner anytime you want it to! :)
