Christmas has come early to
glassybaby this year!
Our very own Lee Rhodes has been named Entrepreneur Magazine's Entrepreneur of 2011. First woman ever and first Pacific Northwesterner! We are so pleased and proud of Lee and how glassybaby has touched the minds and hearts of so many.
Do read all about it:
Comments are coming in from all over. Here are just a few:
Judy, who describes herself as a "delighted customer", writes, "This is so wonderful! Congratulations to Lee and all of glassybaby. Your light shines, even to Chicago."
From Rose we hear,"So cool. I love you guys!"
And from Sue, "Congratulations! You definitely deserve this award! I love glassybaby!"
Thank you to all of you in our extended glassybaby family for sharing this joy.
Don't look now, but a customer had their Elf on the Shelf end up on the glassybaby shelf. We have no doubt the elf reported to Santa how very "nice" the children in their home have been!
Not only do women have glassybaby on their list, plenty of men do too. Theresa let us know that her husband, Peter, a basketball coach, is (in her words) "addicted" to gb. He owns 40 of our dear little vessels. A few years ago their four year old daughter, Mary Meghan, teased her daddy that she was going to buy him make-up for Christmas. She and her mom stopped into a glassybaby store and, sure enough, the first glassybaby Mary Meghan plucked from the shelf was the then color 'lipstick' which the ladies decided was the perfect gift. I'll bet Peter loved it as well.
As this is published, we have just passed Winter Solstice 2011. Yes!!
At the suggestion of our son, I am already planning a party to celebrate the date next year. I will ask all of the guests to b.y.o.g (bring your own glassybaby)... as many as your arms can carry! Imagine this gorgeous picture below, multiplied by almost a gazillion!
Together we will light up the night enough to make even the sun envious on the shortest day of the year! And we will make merry, for each day will be a "leetle-bit" longer than the last. At least for the next six months!
As we go to press, I am thinking about tomorrow night, Christmas Eve. I don't know about you but before sweet visions of glassybaby start dancing through my mind, I'm going to jump in bed and cover my head because,...well, you know...
Happy Holidays, everyone.
Merry and brightly,
