Tear jerking moment:
As some of you all know Kristen and I did a huge home show in Minneapolis the last weekend in March and first weekend in April 2018. Lots of fun, stress, learning, and again…FUN!! But there was one moment that I need to let you all know about and how Chalk Couture made a moms day and her daughters. They came into our booth and I ask if they had any questions with what we were doing. The mom said no they were just passing thru. But the daughter looked like she was interested. The mom told me that her daughter was autistic (somewhat nonverbal). PERFECT!! I was a PCA for a while. I asked her mom if it was ok if I could show her daughter a demo. The daughter never made eye contact or really engaged…yet. Long story short. The demo put a smile on the daughters face. The daughter said “WOW”. Then I had her do a small project. Mom is watching all this as she is in tears. I let the daughter take her project home at no charge. As the two left our booth, I ran over to my wife (yes, with tears in my eyes…just not rolling down my cheek….I am a man and we don’t cry…total lie there!!) I ask my wife if I could run a give the daughter one of our leather cuffs the she had made with the CC ink. Of course she said yes. I found the mother and daughter team, asked the mother if it was ok if I gave the daughter the leather cuff. Mom said yes. As i gave it to the daughter…MOTHER STARTS CRYING AGAIN!! Because the daughter said…”Thank you!” Remember…she was somewhat nonverbal and autistic. Thank you Chalk Couture for making a product that is so easy that I could have that experience and make a mothers day. And yes the daughters day was made as well. It is times like that that make the stressful times of life totally worth it!! Anyway, I just thought I should share that with you all because it was a time in this crazy world that made three peoples day using Chalk Couture!!
