I could barely make it through my 3 mile run on Thursday so no cupcakes for me. Another quick trip to New York this week to demonstrate our eye shadow making kit for beauty editors did me in. It’s been a long week with the usual flight delays so the latter half of the week hasn’t been my finest.
But I awoke this morning awake and back a state of equilibrium (which is good given that I’m teaching at Otion in less than an hour). Imagine my delight when I saw this photo on the Oh Joy! blog. What a fine way to start a Saturday morning. Whiskie Bits in Oakland, California makes these delectable little morsels. They look like they’re worth running three miles for! Oh (deep sigh), what I wouldn’t give for a cupcake store in Bellingham right now.
New York was an amazing adventure. I’ve only been there a few times and have never stayed more than a few hours. My hotel was in Times Square and the energy of the city was exhilarating. The meetings went well but it’s too soon to tell what, if any, positive press the eye shadow kits will get. Here is a photo of Suzanne (in Marketing) and I putting together press kits and samples before our meetings. Unfortunately, we were walking, running and cabbing it so much that there was no time to find a cupcake store in New York so I’m headed into serious cake withdrawals.
I’m happy to be back in town, even if it’s only for a week. I leave next Saturday for the Soap Guild show in Vermont. And as for right now, I better sign off and get moving if I expect to show up to the Otion soapmaking class on time.
