Where It All Began

Project Runway judge Nina Garcia recently posted this photo on her Twitter account, which brought back memories...
When I was about 10 years old, my mom and I started a small business making and selling crafts.  I was really good at making brooches so I attended local fairs to sell my designs.  I also was an avid reader and a huge fan of American Girl books, and I eventually sold enough brooches to purchase an American Girl doll.
I could have asked my parents to buy the doll for me but I figured that earning it myself would be so much more rewarding.  I still have the doll.
