Wandering? Who’s wandering?

10 Aug

So there’s this lady see….she makes this awesome soap. And she moved near me. Or at least closer than 3 provinces away.

One fine day there was a craft show, and I said HEY! YOU! and she rolled her eyes and snorted and said FINE…I suppose.

And she rolled into town. And she brought some of this:

And yes Virginia, is smells even BETTER than it looks.

Finally, I got to smell EVERY bar of soap. Multiple times in fact. While I have often drank beer at my neighbourhood brewery, I had never drank beer while sniffing and naming soap. Nor have I ever had to convince someone to make the sale even if the packaging was missing.

The fair was fun.  Watching people’s eyes light up as they smelled cinnamon, clove, sugar, almonds-watching Jen speak with such passion and authority on something I always dismissed-soap! and come to understand why she loved to do this-because we should all treat our bodies to natural, good smelling and feeling products.

It was pretty awesome.

Sitting and drinking beer with someone you feel immediately comfortable with, enough so that cutting them off multiple times, drunk or sober, doesn’t make you feel bad….it’s a nice feeling. Meeting someone from my online world and confirming she’s not a psycho, but just another woman trying to make it, trying to keep her brain alive, trying to keep her passion moving forward….it’s nice.

My belief in her product is firm-my belief that we’ve started the basis for a firm friendship, well, that’s more based on the fact that she wasn’t even tempted to sell my house to the crazy lady who called.

I think.

(anyway, this is all a roundabout way to remind you to go order!!! Creative Wanderings really does smell and feel even better than it looks. And it’s orangutan approved!)

    LMAO! Well you made me laugh and cry at once, that takes talent!

    I still can’t beleive that woman.

    It’s also pretty sad that she is the one and only person who has called because of my car magnet. *sigh* I totally do it for the tax write off.
