Thoughts for the Week

I have been actively researching and studying the wondrous world of botanical perfumery in addition to all of my other daily duties.  So...I have neglected to post anything recently.  Sorry about that, please forgive me.

My good news for the week is that beginning this Thursday I will be providing Lemon Lavender Pound Cakes to a gourmet restaurant in Bolingbroke - The Red Tomato.  I'm very excited about this collaboration with Chef Michael Falduti, owner/chef.  He also wants to work with me to develop other interesting and unique desserts for his restaurant.  This is a great opportunity and one that I have been hoping for!

Wednesday (oh, that's tomorrow) I've got to really get my sewing machine into high gear.  I have pillows to make for The Treasure Trove (Bolingbroke, GA).  Several unexpected things occurred last week which threw off my delivery schedule of the pillows.  Fortunately, I know once I get set up at the machine things will move quickly.

I am anxious to get started on blending natural perfumes.  And although I still have MUCH to learn...I think it will be a fun and rewarding process.  The biggest hurdle at this moment in time will be adding to my essential oil collection so that I have enough of a variety of scents to experiment with.

Hope you all have a great week... and remember to Reuse, Recycle, and Repurpose!

The Crystal Mermaid

Thursday, July 15, 2010


Hello and welcome to Mermaid Pearls!  I hope to bring you inspiration and a fresh prespective on our ever-changing world.  This is my first blog so please be patient with me as I learn about the world of blogging.

Last week was pretty hectic and due to a few unexpected events, my week was a little screwed up.  Things have settled back down and I look forward to a productive week.  I've got pillows to make for The Treasure Trove, Lemon Lavender Pound Cakes to bake for The Red Tomato (I'm very excited about this collaboration!), and new inventory to create for The Crystal Mermaid :-).

Sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure I'm really awake.  I am living my dream and it is truly amazing!

I wish all of you a fantastic week!  And please remember to reuse, recycle, and repurpose.
