2008 ISOCAN Conference

Hello everyone,

Happy new year!! I hope you are well and business is blooming.

Are you ready for this year's ISOCAN conference? we are looking for volunteers to join the committee, if you are interested in participating to make a difference for everyone we would love to have you join us.

ISOCAN is a non-profit conference, with the help from the volunteers I organized last year's conference in 2 short months lol but we have plenty of time to plan this year's conference! I hope you can join me again this year.

We had such a good time last year and we are ready to do it again! email me for further details.

Hello everyone, I hope all of you enjoyed the convention as much as I did, it was such a blast to see so many familiar faces as well as meeting new people! At the closing of the convention, I had so many people approached me and already signing up to be in next year's convention either to demo or volunteer! That was such a beautiful thing that so many of you are willing to share with the rest of us! Thank you!!!Although we are sending out the thank you cards that you help signed at the convention, but please feel free to also send an email to the contributing suppliers, on-site suppliers and especially the ISOCAN convention sponsor Mike Lawson from Columbus Foods to thank them for their generosity and support for our event. I encourage all of you to patronize these businesses and please do let them know that you were one of the attendees of the ISOCAN Convention.

Stainless Steel Travel Mugs!
Would you like additional travel mugs that you received at the convention? we have extras that you can purchase. They are $7 each including shipping cost. If you are interested, please email me ASAP, supplies are limited and they are first come first served. The extra funds will be put towards next year's convention.

Lastly, if you would like to leave a testimonial for the blog email me so I can post them! Also, if you have further comments to suggestions for next year, email me all your ideas and thoughts!


Thank you and take good care of yourself, we hope to see you again next year!

2007 Preorders, NEW ITEMS, and Demo

Hi everyone!

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow (Wednesday, 8/8) is the last day for preorders to be guaranteed delivery on Saturday. Use code ILL10 when you checkout for the 10% discount! :)

Also, some of our new items have arrived already! We now have Polysorbate 20 and 80, Cetyl Alcohol, and Emulsifying Wax for your toiletries and other creations, and new bottles as well -- 80 and 120 ml aluminum bullets, and 2, 4, and 8 oz. Cosmo Ovals. But the new item I'm most excited about is an Oak Court Creations exclusive -- our new Crystal Heat Transfers for soapers (chandler versions soon to follow!) Here's a preview of the first one in the line which I'll have available for purchase on Saturday - you guys are going to be the first ones to see these!!

The graphics don't do them justice.... these are sparkling rhinestone-like crystals, applied to a clear heat transfer backing material that allows them to be ironed on to t-shirts, tote bags, aprons, etc. with either a home iron or a heat press. You can put them on any color shirt -- they look best on medium to dark colors, where they really pop, but they sparkle no matter what the background color is! :o) These are going to be $15 each on our website, but they'll be only $12 on special on Saturday. AND - we'll have a heat press with us, so if you want to bring a blank shirt/tote/apron/whatever (prewashed in case it shrinks), we'll iron it on for you for no charge! There are simple instructions included if you prefer to take it home and iron it on yourself. Once this initial order is depleted, it will take us 3-4 weeks to bring them back into stock, so come see me early on Saturday (or put in your dibs on Friday night at the party! LOL). I don't have these up on the website yet, so they aren't eligible for the preorder discount.

I have my demo ready to go - we'll be making Moisturizing Body Spray and Linen Spray - but right now, I have NO VOICE due to bronchitis, so I may have to use a translator and/or "cue cards" instead of talking. LOL You'll be able to take home a sample of one of the sprays and the recipes, even if I can't talk. I'll also have a make-and-take area in my booth so you can play at making an AromaArt™ Air Freshener to take home with you. Those of you who know me, know that this is absolutely killing me not to be able to talk. But we'll make the best of it! :o) I've got goodies from the health food store and lots of info from online, and will do everything I can to have enough voice to do the demo on Saturday.

See you on Friday --
