We're Doing Things!

I am so excited. I might say that a lot but it is true. There is something really amazing about creating things. You get to KEEP creating and then re-creating and so on and so on. That's what we are doing and the energy is good! Yes there are issues and downfalls, but we keep going and that is why we are successful. First of all, our new website launched last week. I was so excited about that that I posted a video about it on our new YouTube Channel! So fun. There will be more videos featuring recipes, news and all kinds of fun things. Really excited to exercise my imovie skills. Our new packaging will be here October 12th. That day cannot come sooner because I have so may ideas, so many people I want to send them to, so many pictures to take...ahh! So as you can see, I am excited.
We've gotten some amazing press in the past few weeks about our indie go go campaign. We recorded an interview for a video series with the Huffington post (coming out next week), were interviewed for a BOOK coming out called "Funding for Food" AND our campaign was linked to the WHITE HOUSE BLOG! We had no idea that our successful campaign was going to bring so many perks! Now I must shout out the amazing people at IndieGoGo. What amazing and supportive people all working to help people following their dreams--Thank you so much for sharing our story and what we do with people!
This weekend we are taking a short trip to Albany to vend at the Albany Vegetarian Expo on Saturday. Very excited for a little road trip and to meet some new people and be OUT there. I really love doing things like this and seeing everyone's reaction to what we do and what we are about. The above photo is from a demo we did at our local co-op, Greenstar. Always so fun.
I am going to be doing a lot of blogging, videos, newsletters, all that stuff and I wanted to know what do you want to see from us? What types of posts and videos do you like the most? I would love to hear your feedback!
Cant go 30 minutes without feeling so much gratitude for this opportunity to grow, contribute, make mistakes and have fun!
Thank you for being a part of it.

Emmy's as the Emmy's??

We went to Ian’s mom’s house to watch the Emmy’s on Sunday night and we were so surprised to see that they are now using our Emmy’s (our) font for their logo. It was such a strange experience to see, well, our logo flash up on the screen numerous times during the evening. On one hand, we thought this was excellent, so much exposure for our brand, though in a very incorrect platform. On the other hand, will people now associate that font with the Emmy Awards and get confused? Does it really matter? Probably not. But we could help but discuss what the impact might be. What do you think?

We are still plugging away at our website. There is a lot more to do than we thought but we are very close.

I just got off the phone with a woman who is writing a book called Finance for Food. She just interviewed me about our crowdfunding experience, so cool! In other news, we just created a brand new YouTube Channel where we are going to start sharing food, lifestyle and business-running videos with you! We are excited. Who knows where to start first…

Talk to you soon!

Love, Samantha
