Thanks to the gals at Knelow, I had a smashingly fun time at Crave today. We talked for (literally) hours about incense formulations, making lotion with real brewed coffee and the drama of parabens in lotions. Lisa and Jamie are awfully cool chicks who are passionate about what they do. Their dedication is apparent in their products.
I came home with a stash of their goodies! My favorite Knelow product is their unscented coffee lotion. It has a delicious realistic smell and supposedly, caffeine helps cellulite. I’ll take all the help I can get in that department.
The statement piece looks even more ornate up close. It’s clear that much time and energy went into making this unique piece of jewelry.
You can buy her leather jewelry and straps at Kick It Boots and Stompwear in Ballard or call Ash at 503-997-0759 to have her do your make-up for your next big event in the Seattle/Portland area.
Wyatt, Whitney and I did a panel discussion about finding your bliss. Though, today, we sure talked a lot more about the not-bliss part of being self-employed than the actual bliss part! In hindsight, I wish I had been more positive and upbeat about all the groovy good things that come with being self-employed. When the show actually airs, I’ll figure out if I was the mistress of darkness for all the would-be entrepreneurs in the audience or just a mini dose of cold reality. Whtiney and Wyatt were funny, charming co-hosts and I’m looking forward to designing a show with them around soap. Hopefully they can be lured to Bellingham for a day of soap, cupcakes and creativity.
Tomorrow is back to the normal day job sans eye make-up (to-do: write and record new Otion radio ad, supervise Otion while Erik is gone to a merchandising course, review Accounts Payable credit card charges, follow-up with five retail stores for Organic Fusion, normal email and phone call backlog, design fifth aromatherapy study for clinical aromatherapy certification).
