the glassybaby family's #12colorsofchristmas
we know, we know: with so many colors to choose from, it's hard to pick the perfect glassybaby.
well, our glassybaby #family is here to help, by sharing with you our "12 colors of christmas." that means that every day between now and christmas, one member of our internal glassybaby family will introduce their favorite color, here on our blog. first up is JP:
day 2: Tater Tot
role at glassybaby: I run security at glassybaby. As soon as I walk in, my human takes off my leash and I get straight to work. I make sure to sniff out any new scents. Then, I run up & down the same hallway over and over to make sure it is extra safe. Finally, I continue my watch from my human's lap, occasionally giving the hallways another patrol.
favorite glassybaby color: 'friendship'
why this is my favorite glassybaby: When I am not working I love to go on walks and make new friends. Those friendships are my favorite, friendships that give back. At glassybaby friendship gives to san francisco's SPCA . Did you know it is on of our nation's oldest animal rescue? I may look like a pup but in my twelve human years, I have been rescued twice. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention the obvious. I am "man's best friend!"
day three: Vicki Fredman
role: queen of madrona or simply the madrona store manager
favorite glassybaby: red licorice
reason: this super-saturated deep red, reminds me every day of my favorite holiday- Christmas. because creating such a brilliant red is so difficult, it makes it that more special to me, knowing it truly is a labor of love to make. and finally, it is a huge giver to oncology nursing.
('red licorice' was a limited edition color that quickly sold out...)
day four: Abbie Webb
role at glassybaby: partnership account manager. I talk to nonprofits to share the ways we can partner and support them through glassybaby.
favorite glassybaby color: 'jane's caramel'
reason: jane's is so understated, but when lit, the flame transforms, showing off its true inner beauty. there is nothing like it. i just can't resist an extra-stripey 'jane's caramel.'
day five: Aaron Coughlin
role at glassybaby: digital marketing director
favorite glassybaby color: 'hawkfetti'
reason: As a diehard “12,” I have to give love to 'hawkfetti' for the 12 days of Christmas!
day six: Kaitlin Stevens
role at glassybaby: quality control manager, berkeley hot shop
favorite glassybaby color: 'lucky penny'
reason: at the moment, lucky penny is my favorite color. knowing how much thought the r&d team put into designing this piece makes it extra special. this is a color you won’t see anywhere else since we make the color bar in house. coming from a background in the glass world, seeing something brand new and completely unique is really fun.
day seven: Guy Farris
role at glassybaby: national road show director
favorite glassybaby color: 'aquamarine'
reason: I grew up at the beach in southern california and love being near the water and hearing the waves crash. It's soothing and comforting to me. So, when I yearn for the ocean of my youth, I light my aquamarine.
day eight: Taylor Paddock
role at glassybaby: customer service manager
favorite glassybaby color: 'ocean'
reason: it was the first glassybaby i got and all the blue glassybaby are my favorite.
day nine: Kelly Storum
ole: supervisor at glassybaby stanford
avorite glassybaby color: 'master of the universe'
reason: i love the exotics- all of them! but if I had to pick one, it's 'master of the universe,' because it makes me feel empowered, I like how this beautiful votive and its sentiment might instill that feeling in others.
day ten: James
role at glassybaby: Berkeley warehouse transfer specialist
favorite glassybaby color: 'wise'
reason: because of the wispy, dark dream state of the color.
day eleven: Alex Ford
role at glassybaby: glassblower (trimmer)
favorite glassybaby color: 'doggie paddle'
reason: because it donates to help train rescue dogs as service animals for veterans.
day twelve: mericos rhodes
roles at glassybaby: marketing writer
favorite glassybaby color: 'kindness'
reason: simple, classic, timeless, just like its namesake. i love its subtle glow, which shows you a little flickering flame, but not the candle itself. to me, it's perfect and versatile.
