hey guys!  terra’s got a big friday coming up!  events on both the east and west side, all in one day- next friday, 4.16.

we were invited to participate in the 2010 green dream showcase, an eco-friendly showcase created and maintained by the beachwood high school marketing education/junior achievement class.

terra verde will be among the local and national vendors displaying their company commitments to sustainability and eco-friendly products.  the event will be held at the beachwood community center, 23235 fairmount blvd, beachwood, from 1p-7p.  come be green with us: bring documents to be shredded, learn about eco-friendly living, and enter giveaway raffles.  (terra will be contributing some giveaway goodies, hint hint, wink wink.)

looking for evening activities, perhaps on the west side?  come join us at the vanitylab festivus celebration at vanitylab salon in westlake.

the party runs 6p-9p at vanitylab, 2495 detroit road, westlake.  a portion of all proceeds from the event will benefit the cleveland spca.  lots of local art, a sweet  spa/salon location, and your contribution to a great cause!  terra will have it’s full line available for purchase, and credit cards will be accepted for all art/craft purchased at the event.

hasta viernes, kids!  wherever you live in the cle, we’re gonna be close, so come see us!

thanks, amanda!  ‘blue sunset’ is the name of the new terra verde spring scent!

blue sunset candles will be debuting on the terra verde etsy shop and at the salty not sweet shop later this week!

(for full info, see previous post.)

name a new scent!

13 03 2010

i need help!  i found a great new scent, and i want to give it an adorable name to match.  the generic name is blue agave/tequila plant.

top notes of kaffir lime, lemon zest, apple, and black currant.  middle notes of lily of the valley and rose petals.  base notes of oak moss and white woods.

i think this scent smells like a lovely mexican holiday.  (though i’ve never actually been to mexico…)

send me your name suggestions, and the winner(s) will receive a $10 terra gift certificate to use at our next show- cirque imaginnaire, on saturday, march 27th.  if more then one person suggests the winning scent, all will receive a gift certificate.  contest ends tomorrow (sunday, 3/14) evening, when i’ll post the winning name and winner.

this scent has not been released, but you can get a sneak whiff at the salty not sweet boutique this weekend!  tonight until 11pm, sunday 12-4!

hang in there, haiti

from jan 13-feb 4, terra verde committed to contributing 25% of our sales to haitian earthquake relief funds. we’re still pretty new; pretty small, but i’m proud to say we raised $100.25 smackaroos, to go to the red cross international relief fund.

thanks to all for your support, and look for info soon on future donation efforts from terra.



it’s star pop + salty not sweet v-day party day!

5 02 2010

terra’s in the midst of a makeover. we’re surrounded by lots of exciting things, all moving at a very rapid speed. and i’ll be documenting it all here, in my new little soap diaries blog.

today’s summary is gonna be short & sweet: some yawn-inducing business & financial planning, testing (and hopefully naming) a fresh cut grass scented candle and a candle for the dudes, and the making of rice krispie treats for the star pop & salty vday party on waterloo this evening! come join us!

feliz viernes!

melly, v 1.0
