Do You Love Bubblegum Machines?
Okay, I know I promised Halloween art. But this IS candy, and candy is Halloween, right? I've had this idea sitting on the table for awhile (and even used it as inspiration for one of my party cups). Last night I decided to bite the gumball and get it done.
I've loved gumball machines since I was a teeny tot. (Although I really preferred the ones with rubber balls or other cool junk.) A classic bubblegum machine is artistic, and classic. A perfect balance between fun and nostalgia without being melancholy.
Since bubblegum machines are still around, they can remind us of our childhood in a happy way.
And who doesn't love happy?
Gumballs can also be motivational. Or at least the story behind gum is. The history of gum is rich with entrepreneurship, creativity and marketing.
