@Peaceoutboyscout:  Yes! Put me on the list for one! 😀

I have to admit though, I predict overflowing ERs, once the craze takes hold!

@bmo88:  I would love to have a simple slow paced coffee/tea shop with gluten free and organic foods or a mommy and me type place, for activities moms can do with their infants.

I want to start a side-business crystallizing shoes and accessories…but I’m not sure if I’m actually “good” enough to charge money for this service…  For now its just a fun hobby for me, but I need a kick in the butt to turn it into something more.  

Here are a few I’ve done:

@bmo88:  I’ve had a dream of opening a combination yarn store/tea house for a while. It’s totally unrealistic in this economy but maybe when I’m at “retirement” age. 

I heard about this place near me where they rent space to you and your bridal party to come in and do your DIY stuff. I guess they have lots of tools (I’m imagining fancy printers, laser cutters, glue guns, stuff like that) and a big open work space. They also say they can “help you finish anything you need”. Like, what? They just do whatever DIY shit you need done? I kind of LOOOOOOOVE that business plan. I want to just do random wedding crafts for a living!! I can’t imagine it’s super profitable, but it sure sounds fun.

Themed nursing homes.

Oh like a Harley Davidson Nursing Home with Lynnard Skynyrd music playing and sheets with the logo. And of course a track for wheelchairs decked out like hogs.

A Grateful Dead Nursing Home – complete with tye-dyed sheets and you can guess the refreshments.

A Crafters Nursing Home with pottery wheels, scrapbooking tables, etc

An Animal-lovers Home – where the residents could have pets.

I think you get the idea…
