Greetings from the lovely New York City. I am absolutely in love with this city – the energy, the activity and the awesome subway system. Mass transit is something we don’t have in Seattle, WA so this is a treat.
Today was the radio show. Here I am at Sirius Radio.
On the air with Mario Bosquez. His specialty is “a little bit of everything Martha,” so he covers food, gardening, lifestyle and of course, crafts. I had read someplace that he had a niece. Picturing her like 6 or 7 years old, I left him a Children’s Soapmaking Kit to play with.
Of course, today, I see a picture of his niece and it’s clear that she is a fully grown, beautiful, adult woman. I sure hope she likes Salamander molds and Watermelon fragrance!
Mario Bosquez was a great host – engaging and genuinely interested in our craft. Plus, he was positively over the top ecstatic about our Oatmeal, Milk & Honey custom mold and fragrance. That did warm this little soapmaker’s heart.
Then, I got lucky. Jen Strang, a long time Bramble Berry customer and entrepreneur herself with RememberThePlaza.com, happened to have an extra ticket to the Grammy Award winning Steve Earle and Allison Moorer. The concert was in a lovely church in Greenwich Village and was a small, intimate and sold out event.
I love New York.
