This year has been quite a busy one! Since my last post in July I have reached and stretched the company in new directions and locations. With the Stick With It® palette/case entering new markets I want to bring you up to speed on what's going on.
First, I'm happy to announce that we have expanded into more stores, you can see our shop list here. In 2017, we will be adding a brand new makeup store opening soon in Dubai!
Secondly, it turns out the unique features of the Stick With It® are perfect for the cleaning and maintenance of firearms. I introduced the case to the San Diego Police Department and received a very nice testimonial from Officer Deyling. Back in November of last year I attended a Meet the Buyer event for Veteran-owned businesses sponsored by the SBA. I learned about the filing process to become WBE/DBE/SWBE government certified. One year later I am now officially certified.
Lastly, I participated in SCALE, a business accelerator program offered through Hera Labs. In recognition of Veteran's Day, The executive director, Silva Mah PhD, MBA covers my journey in her latest article.
As we wrap up 2016, I want to take this time to say, thank you for your support, your votes and your purchases. Make sure you are signed up for our newsletter to receive a Holiday Sale announcement coming soon.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you!
Many of you have been asking for different colors or prints. I've come up with a really easy and creative way for you to customize yours!
Our custom–cut vinyl skins provide a simple way for you to personalize and protect your Stick With It®. The skins feature a high gloss, UV protective coating that looks amazing and will last a long time providing excellent scratch protection. It's a perfect solution if you have the older palettes that had the big logo and they are looking a little beat up. Installing the skins is as easy as peel, stick and enjoy! The skins can be removed with no residue, no mess and no fuss. Make sure you check out all 10 prints to select from for only $9.95!
Welcome to the first Monday of 2016. I have a feeling this year is going to be phenomenal!
Remember what it was like to be sweet 16? I used to spend hours writing in my journal, doodling my dreams, thinking about what my life would be like in college, do I really have what it takes to join the military, wondering who I would marry, and how many kids we would have. Although, it's been many years since I was 16, I still yearn for those care-free days of doodling and writing in my journal.
As this year turned over, I grabbed my cup of coffee, my calendar from the shelf and reflected on 2015. Paging through my notes I noticed it missed an element of me, my silly doodles and scribbles of fun To-Do's. It was full of serious lists and action items. I'm glad I busted my butt in 2015, and very happy with the results of my goals and intentions. However, this year I will grab my colored pencils and doodle in more fun time with family, friends and 'me' time. I sure said 'no' to many social invitations this past year and I'm ready to play a bit more and enjoy this sweet '16. Here are highlights from my 2015 calendar, sharing successes and some challenges I faced and what I learned.
As I closed the final page of last year, I reached for my newly appointed 2016 calendar. I filled it chock-full of events, goals, intentions, aspirations, potential dates to see family and friends and left room for some doodling.
I wish this New Year will be your sweet ’16, filled with prosperity, love, confidence, and fulfilled sense of purpose.
I created the Stick With It Palette to help me organize and store my eyeshadows and blush pans without the hassle of magnets. However, people are discovering other uses for the palette! Here are some ideas and our latest video that may spark ideas for you.
Any componentry will stick! Use the palette in the open position as a temporary surface to work from. Set in your individual clamshells of makeup, pop open the lids and go to town using it as an easy, accessible palette. I had a flight attendant tell me she did not want to empty out her makeup bag on the airplane bathroom countertop, so she sets her items on the palette. Because it clings, she did not have to worry about things falling onto the floor.
Here double-ended makeup brushes and stainless steel implements stay secure (no worries, the brush bristles will not stick to the surface). Use a palette to keep hair clips, bobby pins and plastic combs handy and sanitary.
Need easy access to office supplies? I keep mine in the car. If you are into arts and crafts that require storing beads, crystals or any small parts the palette is ideal for these projects. Enjoy the video and please share your ideas!
