My Little Entrepreneur

I have a little girl that is constantly coming up with different projects and telling me that she is going to sell them in her own shop.


The name of her shop (to be) will be Bluebird.

She wants to sell bracelets, necklaces, headbands, eye shades and pretty much anything else she can come up with.

Our poor neighbors have been sold many things over the years (without my knowledge).

I was wondering where she was getting all her cash.

This past weekend Madolyn came up  with her new headbands and asked me to be her model.

So…I was the model…Maddy was the photographer.

It was actually hard to be serious.

We were laughing the whole time.

For the record…that is confetti in my hair..not dandruff.  Wanted to clarify!

There may be a reason that the Ford Modeling Agency has never contacted me.

If you are ever looking for a totally groovy headband…I've got connections with the artist!

I love that she is a dreamer.

She is a wonderful writer.

Her mind is always coming up with wonderful stories, ideas, creations.

I hope we do a good job encouraging her to truly fly.

    Don’t you just love how are kids can be such an inspiration to us?? You are setting an amazing example for your daughter, she will fly…with creativity and kindness, just like you!

    You WILL do an amazing job encouraging her to fly! πŸ™‚ Go Madolyn! Love the “let the sun shine in” headband!! And I think Ford missed it by not calling jeanneoli. What is wrong with those people?

  4. staceyyaculastudio

    Sounds like your daughter has a mother that sees the amazing possibilities in her & fosters this artist when ever possible.
    How lucky are you to be able to go on this journey with her!

    Maybe she will be just like her momma.
    I just wanted to say your daughter is very beautiful. She has such a sweet face.

    Where’s your signature pursed lips pose?? You were close in that second pic, but no cigar.
    I love creative kids!! I can see Calvin going down this same road before long…
    Madolyn is beautiful and looks very much like you!

    Please tell your totally creative daughter that I would like one of her “totally groovy” headbands. Love this:)

    It is my sense that you are doing a good job in assisting her to fly! Such a fun post and gorgeous headband too~

    Ahhh, she is such a beautiful little girl and I love her dream! I also love the title of her someday shop. I’d say this little dreamer has a great example that she is following in her mommy! Way to go mommy for passing on the desire God put inside of her to create and go for her dreams. This little bluebird is gonna fly high when she leaves the nest someday.
    You sport the beautiful headband very well!

    Wow, this really brings me back to my childhood. I was always setting up shop and dreaming about making things. My mom always gave me the encouragement to fly with my dreams and the foundation of her love to come home to. It was a true blessing and a gift from God that she let me be a dreamer. Now, I’m in my twenties and I can see my creative childhood dreams starting to come to life. And my mom is still cheering me on! πŸ™‚
    Beautiful post!

    Hehe! Sounds like me when I was little. My Mom was constantly chauffeuring my sister and I around to craft malls to sell our creations.

  14. melanie

    She is so talented! If she is anything like her mommy, not only will she fly… she will soar!!! ;-))))

  15. Christina

    Love, love, love it. Although I don’t know much about you, my guess is that she is a little apple that didn’t fall far from the tree. So sweet…could her eyes be more gorgeous?!

  16. Pony Girl

    So cute…..I love that she is creative and has dreams at her age! I was like that as a child. Now I’m almost 40 and just starting to make my entrepreneurial debut. It’s funny, the more creative you start being, the more creative you become!
    p.s. Love the name Bluebird for her little shop-to-be!

    I’d say Maddy is a chip-off-the-ol’-block. It makes me happy to hear that she is inspired by you and following in your footsteps. What a wonderful example you are, Jeanne ~ something to be very proud of indeed. xo

  18. Lori

    Jeanne, i just saw your gorgeous ruffled tote featured on crescendoh!!! you GO girl:) and congratulations…i think you better plug in that sewing machine and get busy:)

  19. Carmen

    What a sweet, sweet girl. She looks just like you , I think. I love that you posed for these pics. And it definitely made me giggle because my 9 year old daughter has been making earrings and selling them to her friends for $1.

  20. Suz Reaney

    Your kids are so cute! You look like you have a great time being a mom. I think you make a groovy hippie!!

  21. Suzen

    Awww…(Mom, you are a good example to her!)
    And those beautiful sea green/blue eyes! What a cutie!

  22. Julie M ~ The Little Red Shop

    Thank you for clarifying. I was a little concerned…those are some pretty hefty flakes. Maddy is such a little creative beauty. She sure takes after her mama!
    Have a lovely week, shopgirls.
    : )

    Hmmmm….I wonder where she gets it from. OK this is weird, my 11 year old made a braided headband and wore it to church today. Must be a new fashion trend. Are you sure it’s not dandruff??? Have a blessed day.

  24. Molly @ Star Cottage

    What a gorgeous and talented little girl. She is so blessed to have such a fun creative and encouraging Mommy. She is going to soar!
    And btw. Ford is missing out on some fabulous talent. Who needs them anyways πŸ˜‰
    Many Blessings to you both,

  25. LuLu

    She is following in her sweet mom’s foot steps! And you are the best mom to teach her to FLY!!

  26. Lara

    How awesome is that she is taking after you?! I love it. More than anything she sees in you that you CAN have it all…healthy family life, good marriage AND your own dreams and creative plans.
    I love this, Jeanne! …and your “happenin headband”..

  27. Amy Jo Axe

    She and Lauren can team up! Her store is called The Tooth-fairy. She has business cards made up and tags for her items! They could really take the neighbors for a ride!
