Dough Ornaments: A Cottage Industry
RENEE MONTAGNE, Host:
Rose Marie Lynn may have another idea for Baxter Black's everlasting cookies. She's in the business of turning dough into Christmas ornaments. It started as a way to make money for her church in the Macomb, Illinois. Now she runs a company called Dough Delights that churns out 50,000 handmade ornaments a year. Besides the classics, like peppermint sticks and snowmen, Rosemarie Lynn sells her Christmas Tree knickknacks in more than a hundred designs, including pink flamingoes and country lion dancers.
