There is a distinct chirp in the air and moments of solar brilliance. Last week was utterly gorgeous in Seattle, pinch yourself beautiful. And the cherry blossoms, ubiquitous to our bit of the map, have debuted their pinkness...think thousands of little tutu glassybaby.
We received thank you notes from Claire this week, one of our favorite 8 year olds, and a treasured glassybaby customer. Claire visited us recently. She (mom) had arranged to interview our CEO, Steve Heuring. Her interview questions would inform her school project, a longitudinal study of anything...Claire chose glassybaby. We are eternally flattered. Claire arrived promptly to Madrona for her high level CEO meeting. I had the pleasure of greeting her and her entourage (Mom, Dad and brother.) After an introduction to Steve in the store...they stole away to our office headquarters where Steve fielded Claire's astute business questions. The wind up? Project glassybaby has been launched by Claire and her sweetest thank you note to us must be described. "Thank you" was written in a highly stylized Claire font, surrounded by stars, smiley faces, hearts, peace signs and the tell tale loop of a cancer ribbon. I love the thoughtful ribbon detail. Claire's note proclaimed: "Thanks for helping me learn stuff about glassybaby...P.S. You're really nice, cool and funny!" So sweet...the cool stuff of a Claire thank you.
glassybaby grace the pages of 2 wonderful March magazines. Martha Stewart's Living Magazine features 2 Bedford Brown glassybaby on page 72, under a subject heading: "The Naturals." The page where glassybaby reside is so calm and beautiful...the ever present Martha taste factor...such a nice mention of glassybaby. The March edition of Food Network Magazine features a colorful trio of glassybaby on page 62...in among many marvelous event planning ideas. The blurb shares knowledge of the brilliant and popular glassybaby rental program. If you find us on page 62...scroll your eyes down the page to find another page feature, pink, scented, biodegradable trash bags with big gold polka dots. Trash with class...love it.
End note, who can resist the words of a glassybaby fan? Carol Pederson took the time to share this:
"Just a note to let you know that I use your "gallery" as a screen saver of sorts. The changing display of glassybaby makes me happy. Of course then I see combinations that I am sure I NEED!...Regards, Carol in Wyoming"
I love emails with words in all caps followed by exclamation points...passion for the product. Thank you Carol...we hope to see you soon.
More Soon. More Spring Soon, Nicola
