BIG NEWS and New Developments

Veggie Headshot

I’ve been so busy these last few weeks, but it’s been pretty good busy. We’ve had some highs and lows with my Mother’s deterioration and steady decline, had many adventures during our Summer break, had our hairs cut to stay cool in the delicious heat, and found an awesome part-time job at Community Natural Foods, a local health food store.

Veggie Deo Stack

Working at Community has been a wonderful environment and opportunity for me to learn, grow, and share. I’ve also been approved to sell my Veggiewitch Cream Deodorant there! I submitted my application and proposal with samples (both 60ml/2oz and 120ml/4oz sizes in each scent) on July 21, 2014, and was called for an interview on August 4, 2014, to sign some papers and get the ball rolling. It’s so exciting!

CNF Labels

We have a tentative beginning of September launch, but my UPC’s are in the CNF system and the shelf labels have been printed. Squeeeeeeeee!

Vegan Food Swap Canada – Round 2

Vegan Food Swap Canada - Round 2

This month, June, was my second month of participation in the Vegan Food Swap, Canada Edition. I’m so excited! It’s wonderful to get a surprise care-package in the mail! Woot! I had loads of fun putting together a package for Megan @ The Gluten Free Vegan. I hope she likes it. ♥

The Swapper that got me, Katie @ Not Your Parents’ Granola, sent such a wonderful package! She sent me: 2 Camino organic, vegan chocolate bars (peanut butter and almond butter were both to die for!); an organic, vegan Eli’s Earth Bar in Peanut Butter Crunch and Caramel (I can’t find enough adjectives to describe how scrumptious this bar was!); a bag with the perfect amount of organic Ceylon (True) Cinnamon (this tastes so good, and adds a delicate profile to the cinnamon toast my Elflings are addicted to.); a packet of locally-made, organic Spelt and Kale Sticks (Holy Moses! These went so fast! I’ve got to try and make some more. My Elflings and I loved them. ♥ ); a bag-full of organic, Black Quinoa (I cannot wait to use this! *happy dancing* ); a bag-full of organic, heirloom Rainbow Heritage Gardens bean mix (this is most gorgeous bag of beans I’ve ever seen! I want to make something (a few things!) really special with them. ♥ ); a bag-full of Ethiopian Berbere spice and a recipe (the fragrance from this amazing spice is gorgeously intoxicating! I cannot wait to try the spice and make the recipe. YUMMY!); there was also a bag-full of the most delicious organic, vegan Gummies (the bag is missing, because my Elflings were faster than me, and devoured them before I could set-up this photo. They were extremely good!).

Thank you soooooooooooo much, Katie! YOU are an angel! *squishy hugs*
