show was good...

The show was nice !
Made a few decent sized sales, had fun and made several good contacts too.

Folks loved my all natural body balms, lip balms, bath salt teas and soaps... and they really couldn't believe that I sewed all of the eye masks and neck pillows by hand and that they had real lavender or other herbs inside them.
They were pleasantly surprised.

We had a nice time, but are Sooooooooooooooooooooooooo tired - I do not look forward to having to put everything away and restocking my online store.
Why couldn't everything have sold so I wouldn't have to put it away - LOL

Getting ready for the show...

My oldest daughter is coming over for a little while today to help me start packing things up for the show.
She is the one who will be helping me that day too.
I made inventory sheets listing everything that I will be taking because I want to make sure it is all organized so I don't forget anything.

I also have a list of other items to take like my business cards, signs, displays...

I finally finished up the chocolate nut fudge lip balms and the honey lip balms.
I got the Pina Colada lip balms poured, but still need to label and wrap them.

I wont have very many soaps ready to take.
All of this damp weather wouldn't allow them to dry properly so I can't wrap them yet.

I sure wish I had another month, I'd have everything ready for sure ;)

Girl's Night Out at Fellow's Riverside Gardens - fundraiser for the Youngstown Ohio botanical garden in Mill Creek Park

4th Annual Girls Night Out At The Gardens, hosted by the Friends of Fellows Riverside Gardens on May 28, 2009.

This is an exclusive shopping event limited to 425 women in the Youngstown area.

It is an evening where women sip cocktails and dine on specially prepared hors d’oeurves, as they shop trunk shows.

This year we are opening up our trunk show to exclusive vendors that will intrigue these women with the new, up and coming trends.

These women will shop from 5:30-9 pm that evening, with a guest lecture by Dr. Shayesteh on Health and Nutrition beginning in the auditorium at 7:30 pm. Those not wanting to attend may continue to shop.

The Girls Night out at the Gardens evening will have a fashion show and demonstrations, lasting no more that 45 minutes. Concluding the demonstration, there will be a grand raffle, which will benefit the Gardens.

I think the tickets are $20.00 if you know anyone who wants to go.

Organically Yours,

I'm been busy...

I made more of my Red Roses exfoliating all natural lip balm yesterday - over 200 of them.
Today, I made the labels for them and will get as many put on Wednesday as I can.
The labeling and shrink-wrapping take longer that the making of them - LOL

I also made the signs to use on my display table at the show at the end of the month.

I have so much more to do, but that's all for today as I can't see straight anymore.

Refills for some products now available

I have been working on adding refills to my product line and finally have a few ready.
So, save your containers from your first purchase (or use one that you have that will fit) and buy the refills from now on.

This is so important to me because I cannot stand waste and I am very much into being "Green" and practicing the 3 R's of Reduce/Reuse/Recycle whenever possible.
