Like most Mom’s, my daughter’s artwork is slowly taking over our home. I have a special box where I save the special items and have purchased picture frames to hang other pieces in her room. But the Mom I read about in The Star today makes my efforts look amateur at best.
Wendy Tsao, an entrepreneur in Vancouver, takes children’s drawings and turns them into stuffed animals. An idea spawned out of her child’s comfort, Tsao started Child’s Own Studio. When she first opened her home-based business, she was only receiving 3-4 orders a month, but since it has now gone viral, she has a backlog of 500-600 emails from interested parents! Goes to show what a litte ingenuity and hard work can do.
