Sneak Peek: My First Weeks with Kerfluffles Marshmallows
Today I thought it would be fun to share what a typical day looks like from my point of view. It's been about three months since I started my new job as a marshmallow maker, recipe tester, and food stylist for Kerfluffles Marshmallows. (How official does that sound?! I'm feeling so grown up lately. . .) I make and cut about a million marshmallows, package them into adorable boxes (we've actually changed packaging since these pictures were taken— but it's still wonderful!), and help ship them out. I also get to brainstorm flavor ideas, test flavors of the month, and photograph marshmallows for the website.
It's all still sort of a surreal experience. I always have to pinch myself when people ask me what I do and I can hardly keep from giggling when I start to explain my job to them. I think everyone thinks I am lying! But here's the truth: we've made somewhere around 85,000 marshmallows— and three months ago this little thing called Kerfluffles didn't even exist. That is SO incredible to me. For the first time in my life, I finally have a rewarding + creative job I can see myself at long term. I can't wait to share more as this chapter of my life unfolds. Thanks to each and every person reading these words for supporting me and being a part of this— whether you've bought marshmallows, left me an encouraging comment, or just tweeted at me to see how things are going over here. I try to respond to as many comments as I can but if I have missed yours then please just know all of you mean more than you could know!
Ps. If you stick around long enough, you might even have a chance to win some marshmallows ;-)
