My name is Katharina Weischede. I am an eleven year (now 12) old Princess who is passionate about slimes and putting smiles on peoples faces.
Let me take you on my journey....
My slimes journey started long before becoming a Slime Princess.
During my school science fair, me and my group were looking for a project to do so we decided to do a Crystal Garden. But sadly, it didn't work! We didn't have enough time, so a member of my group suggested to do an 'Obleck' experiment instead.
Obleck is a mixture that acts like a solid when lots of force is put unto it. It acts like a liquid when you don't add a lot of force.
While I was doing my research on Obleck, I found out about Slime!
It was all over the internet and everyone one was going crazy about it.
I became very interested in it and decided to whip up a batch. I dragged my parents to several stores looking for the slime ingredients. They actually did not know that it's a slime I was making. They thought it's for my science project.
I made my first batch and I felt fantastic! From then on, my love for slime blossomed.
It was not at all good. I was on the hunt for the perfect recipe. I frantically searched through the internet and tried heaps of recipes but none of them worked for me so I decided to make my own!
I finally perfected my recipe. I brought mine to school and my classmates began asking me what I was playing with. From one person, the rest followed. Then, I later found out, I was not allowed to sell. Our Principal gently told me that I should not sell during school times so I decided to sell after school ( I know, I took the Principal's word).
Later, I told my parents, I needed more ingredients. This time, they asked me why. As my science fair was over so I told them and showed them the monies I've earned. They laughed. Being as supportive as they are, they allowed me to experiment. Then, in November 2017, I gave them a list of everything I wanted to start my 'business' including my business plan, so they did.
I am so glad they believe in me. I know they did that because they want me to learn and experience how it is owning my business.
I did my logo, yes I did this beautiful piece of me the 'Slime Princess' then came my instagram, and then my Facebook page... ( I did this website too!)
Now, I make home made slimes of various types, sizes, scents with beads and pearls. I sell at the markets, and now through this website.
I am grateful of the many opportunities that came from my passion and belief that even as young as I am, I can make a difference. I didn't just want to sell slime for the sake of selling them. I want to see the joy in each one's face buying my slimes and the happiness I feel inside me interacting with the other kids, and their families,
I don't want this slime trend to end with the trends, but I want this to be a start of an even more happy journey to all of us... perhaps, as a means to build a community of love and support.
Thank you for all your support and for visiting my website, as always have a wonderful slimey day!
