Grandma's Home Made Christmas Hats
Handmade designer boggins are the specialty of Jean Rose Strout this Christmas season. What a joy it is for me to share just a small part of this wonderful lady. She is nestled out in the middle of the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas. You are just not going to find many ladies out there with so much personality, who are such a joy to be around.
She recently decided that she was going to try her hand and creating some hats from home to see if she would be able to make a few extra dollars.
A few years ago her husband of 56 years passed away. While it was an expected happening, it was no less than tragic. Together they had 3 children who had all had families of their own and had kids of their own. Before her husband, Bill Strout, passed away, they had made everyone's life a little more beautiful. This was especially true for the many grand-kids that she and Bill had been blessed with.
Jean had been by her husbandís side her entire life. Early in their marriage Bill was a well known Sherriff. He was known as "Blackie Strout" by the locals. During this time Jean had her picture taken for the newspapers as she headed up one of the first gun safety courses for women. Jean was never satisfied to just let life pass by without doing what she could to be a good influence to the people she was around.
It was during this time that Bill and Jean purchased land in Arkansas. They purchased land in Arkansas because they had taken several vacations in the Rockies and loved the clear air and sunshine. She and Bill would have their grand-kids visit for the summer every chance they could.
When Bill was gone Jean needed something to help her make it through the tough transition of being alone. So she decided to go to the craft store and see if thing would spark her interest.
When she saw the circular plastic knitting looms she thought that making boggins would be fun. Jean decided she was going to make a hat as a Christmas present for all of her family. They were a big hit, and not just because they were hand-made by a loved one. Jean found that she really enjoyed all the many variations she was able to come up with in her hats. The textures, colors, sizes, and occasions made her options seemingly innumerable and She loved it
As she crafts these hats she sees a personality that she wants to bring to life. From "Candy Cane" to "The Glamour Hat" Jean has put so much personality into her hats that it is hard not to love what she is doing. My personal favorite is her "Christmas Snow".
Seeing an opportunity to market her creations Jean has waded into the deep waters of the internet. She has put a video on YouTube, and you will be doing yourself a favor by checking it out. Even if it is only to give yourself an opportunity to have her put a smile on your face.
I definitely want to take a moment to point out that ANYONE can do this. By being who you are and letting people know what impassions you in what you are doing will set the stage for your online business. If you are trying to make a name for yourself on the internet, let this gem be an encouragement to you, and keep working for what you love.
