Xiane rambles about eco-issues, gardening, crafts, and life.
Can you tell that there's a lot to cover in this post? Ha.
Looks like I've picked up another vending event, this time a fun three-day thinger: Beltane Brouhaha
, held at King's Mountain State Park in SC. It happens on the weekend of April 27th - 29th, though I'll probably only be vending on that Friday and Saturday. Hopefully I'll see some of you there?
With that thought in mind, and knowing that the Rockabilly BBQ
is also approaching, Miss SnitchesGetStitches
and I went to good ol' Dick's
[snigger, yes I'm five] to get an EZ-up canopy to vend under. Lo and behold, they had them ON SALE - cue heavenly chorus - and we got that AND a wind shield for it for just a touch over $100. Yes, we did the dance of joy... well, I thought about it, anyway. Needless to say, we were pleased. We get to try out setting it up in her back yard next week when we work on more Coffin Colors!
I forgot to put that in my title for this post, but oooooh how excited I am about the new mineral pigments we have waiting for us to work with. We plan on some new eyeshadow colours such as Red Ass Red™ and Girl Pants™ and of course many others. You just wait!
And speaking of handmade stuff, I *finally* got my organic shower gels listed, and it took less than a day for BOTH of my listings for the Limited Edition scent Spellbound to sell out. Awesome! Now I'm hoping that Beyond The Pale starts to take off. They smell SO good, and I really like the way they came out, overall. I have been working hard to expand my line, and I'm hoping to have more shower gel scents listed within a week or two.
And while mentioning new items, I should mention that I've got one very special new item listed, and I'd really like it if you took a look.
From my listing for the Zen Body/Massage Oil
Zen is a doggie with cancer. He owns the wonderful Angi of Etsy shop luna2005
, who has been working hard to pay for his vet bills. His cancer has spread to his lungs, but he is strong and he loves his Mom, and this is my way of both paying tribute to that and helping Angi out a little. 100% of the sale for this will go to her!
I created this massage and body oil from the highest quality organic ingredients - a gentle, soothing, yet incredibly moisturizing blend of sweet almond oil, vitamin e, and safflower oils that have been infused with organic rose petals and jasmine flowers [cultivated without chemicals]. I then swirl organic lavender oil throughout, to seal the message of peace within.
Please consider taking a look at this, and if you can, purchasing it to help with Zen's medical bills. Thank you.
