A fairy maker’s wish come true
Kara in Mumpreneur Awards final
FAIRIES, dragons, sprites and mermaids. It might be the stuff of fantasy but for mum-of-three Kara Henderson it is a very real business that has landed her a place in the finals of a national competition.
Mumpreneur Awards are an annual ceremony aimed at celebrating parents throughout the UK who manage the difficult task of juggling business with family life, and will be judged on Saturday, November 8.
Kara, of Watkins Close, Northwood, has been shortlisted for the Wired category, open to businesses which trade mostly online. Having launched The Fairy Maker in March last year, she has expanded and now hopes she has what it takes to walk away with the prize.
She is also in with a chance of winning the title of The Inspirational Business Mum 2014, which will be awarded to the mum who is an inspiration to all women in business.
“I am over the moon to have got into the finals; to be shortlisted because of my art work is a great achievement and honour,” said Kara, 36.
Her creations, made in resin from an original sculpture then hand finished and customised with cute accessories, can command prices of £500 for a special commission.
Judging Kara’s entry will be a panel of top entrepreneurs at The Mumpreneur Conference and Awards, at the Heart of England Centre in Warwickshire.
The event is open to all parents who juggle family and business, and also for those interested in taking the plunge and starting up.
Tickets are on sale through www.mumpren euruk.com.
