Make a Marshmallow Crossbow

This is one of my favorite projects. It is so much fun. I recommend you make at least two so battles can take place.

The mini marshmallow crossbow.

SO easy to make…. and darn powerful. And it is very safe. THe only negative about this is that a week from now you are still going to be finding mini marshmallows under the couch!

Bringing Products to Market

It’s an interesting thing, trying to bring a product to market. For years, with StormTheCaste I was adamant about just doing information but this year I set the goal to do five products that ┬ácompliment all our stuff. It does make sense. For instance I have a whole lot of terrarium tutorials and we now sell terrarium kits. It makes sense and the kits do well.

But, wow! is it is a challenge!! I never realized how much is entailed in trying to bring a product to market. It ranges from concept to development, design, production and even goes as far as securing a bar code for the product! Yup, got to have that bar code.

Well, Seeing as it has been a busy year all of that stuff is old hat for me now and product number four is officially for sale on amazon and on the website. The Goblin Catapult, Yay!

You would not believe how difficult this thing was to bring to fruition. I had to go through a whole lot of stuff including three different wood workers.  But all worth it.

The goblin catapult is here.
