What Happened in Vegas Did Not Stay in Vegas

Money PIt.jpgA few weeks ago, I traveled down to Las Vegas, Nevada to attend the National Hardware Show. This show is a annual exhibit of manufacturers of Lawn and Garden products, as well as other miscellaneous products. Of course, I was most interested in the array of Lawn and Garden products. I felt a little guilty being there, as I was technically there for work but secretly looking around for myself. There are so many new and innovative products coming out for the yard. Fortunately, I flew down there so I didn't have room in my suitcase to buy anything and bring it back. I don't typically use this word, but "giddy" is a good description about how seeing all of these products made me feel about Spring starting and all the gardening I am soon going to be able to do!

Lifetime had a large booth at the show, displaying our awesome Lawn and Garden products. We displayed our new 8'x10' shed, Dual Composter, Kids Oval Picnic Table, as well as other products. Can I just say, I love being in this category of products? I am able to combine my love of gardening with representing and helping to influence bringing great products to market.

Another reason for attending the show was to do another radio interview. (I keep telling our PR person that I am willing to do television, but she insists that radio is a better venue for me. Should I take offense?)  This radio interview was with The Money Pit, a nationally syndicated home improvement show. Leslie Segrete and  Tom Kraeutler are the hosts of the show. Funny story about the last time I interviewed with these two. I was headed down to a work conference on a bus of about 80 people. The only time the interview could be done was during the drive. So, in the middle of nowhere Utah, I had to have the bus pull over so I could do the interview from a truck stop pay phone. Needless to say, the interview in Vegas was a lot more comfortable.

Based on this year's Hardware Show, we have an exciting couple of seasons of new Lawn and Garden products coming to market. Fortunately, this time what happened in Vegas is not staying there but will be hitting store shelves nationwide soon.

Happy Earth Day!
It's time once again to celebrate ourwonderousEarth. Though Earth Day began as a grass-roots movement 38 years ago to educate people about pollution, conservation and to draw the government's attention, it has changed over the years. Today, we all have concerns like climate change and diminishing resources fresh on our minds.It seems like everyone's makingsome small changes, or just being a little more aware.I've made a consious effort to buy moreorganic food, switching my light bulbs to compact florescents (CFLs), and turning off unused electronics. But I'd like to do more this Earth Day, so I've been searching for ideas.

Favorite Room In My House
We moved to a new house two years ago and I love it! Out of the entire house, guess which room my favorite? Ok, trick question…it’s not even really a room. It’s the closet in our office! It’s a large walk-in closet with two doors and a window. I use one side for storage of big things like suitcases, our baby pack-n-play, etc. The other side is my own little niche….my craft closet. Most of the crafts I do are just small paper type crafts (handmade cards, invitations, etc.) so I don’t need a lot of room or fancy supplies. Most people laugh at me and ask why I don’t just use the entire office as my craft room. Well, as I’ve mentioned before, I love to be organized so it’s crucial to my sanity that I don’t leave projects-in-process just laying around where I can see all of the clutter. So, turning the closet into my craft close...
