Totally cool party ideas
A friend says that with the job market moving so slowly, this will be the decade of innovation. My cousin Jenny Densing, who lives in Houston, Texas USA, has already started. She's a 24-year-old artist creating her own business in unusual items: felt play food, vintage items and fake moustaches for people, cupcakes and cars. OH, yeah.
People order her moustaches-on-a-stick (or on a beverage straw) by the hundreds and thousands for weddings, bachelorette parties and other occasions. You can find her on the Etsy website where she also offers pipe-on-a-stick, lips-on-a-stick, huge moustaches you can put on your car, etc. I’m impressed that Jenny is not only good at thinking up and creating these things, but also makes a great model for them. Take a look.
Jenny has a BFA degree from the University of Houston and doesn't like idle hands, which is good because she alone fills huge orders all week long. Those Etsy artists obviously work very hard to make a living, and yet Jenny is ready to discuss a custom made order if you have a special project for her.
I’m impressed by my cousin. It often seems like there aren't many jobs for anyone graduating in this decade, but some grads are definitely making money.
