Throwing In & Catching Up

If I had to guess, I would say I don’t think I have had a week with more very specific commitments ever.  We just finished concerts, dances, parties, confirmation and The Country Living Fair.  It was overwhelming leading up to it all, but in the end, I was able to keep the “panic” at bay and really enjoy each and every event.  It was a blend of family events and business events, and each made the other sweeter.

It does not go unrealized that we never would have been able to do any of the things we have the last week without the incredible support and help from our family, friends and our team.  Everyone came through this last week and we are so blessed to be surrounded with so many amazing people.  I am learning that not only does it take a village to raise children, but that same village helps build a business.

So, are you wondering how the County Living Fair went?

It was fantastic.  And overwhelming.  And so much was learned.  And emotional – I just could not believe we were there.  And that we were able to be part of the Earth Angels Studios booth.  And that we were in the famous “line-up” at the start of the show.

We introduced our new product line of galvanized metal ornaments and our village and the response was great.  We will be adding these to our online shop in the fall.  Our candles sold like crazy.

And the great news is it seems like we will be at the Columbus, Ohio show and the Atlanta show this fall!  We are so excited and I could just pinch myself!

Now for the “throwing in” part.  Next week, Dana and I will be sharing a fun project with The Home Depot – a Father’s Day Football Toss.

Now, ours is going to look a little bit different than this one and we can’t wait to share ours.  But you can make one too at a Home Depot Workshop on Saturday, June 18th.

Stop back next Monday when I will share our project along with four other talented bloggers – I can’t wait to see their versions.

And so now that we are all caught up, I am going to go catch up on some sleep!

  1. I wish you would put the houses on earlier than the fall. I need to make plans for them. So glad things are going well. The best to you and your family and friends.

  2. I’ll see you in Atlanta! This will be my 4th time in a row I’ve attended. Love Stone Mountain.

  3. You were destined to be a part of that amazing event. Congratulations! And so exciting you’ll be traveling too. Looking forward to seeing your football toss 😉

  4. Congrats Laura & Dana on your first Country Living Fair! Hopefully you’ll be able to travel south for the Nashville show next year! I’d love to know what your best selling candle scent was at the fair. I’ve been teetering on ordering but I don’t know which fragrance I’d pick so I’d love it if you’d share the top 3 – 5 best selling scents!

    1. Thank you so much Mary Beth! We will see what next year holds for Nashville! So, as far as best sellers – Sage Evergreen is our biggest seller by far, year round. Right behind it at the show was the Summer Citrus which had a great welcoming. As far as my favorites – I always love and burn lemon verbena and right now I am truly enjoying the rosemary mint. Can you tell that I love them all!? I hope this information helps!
