Tonight Mary and I are attending a mixer for the Woodstown Pilesgrove Business Association at Salon Nicole and decided we would do a live blog while we are here....this way everyone can see what is going on pretty much as it happens! It is always fun to network with local business; we really enjoy getting to know other business owners and hearing their input on running a successful small business. Tonight's mixer was sponsored by Salon Nicole, Auburn Road Vineyards & Winery, and A Garden Party. Salon Nicole is doing makeovers on a few lucky volunteers as I type....and Mary practiced her photography skills (thanks Tina) by taking some before shots. After the style makeovers, we are going to present some tips on blogging! We even made a little handout, awwwwww....
Of course I couldn't do a blog without including at least one flower shot! We decided an arrangement featuring carrots was perfect since Easter is right around the corner!
Bobbie with Franklin Bank was kind enough to put this all together...and volunteered her daughter, Hayley for a makeover :)
Paula also works at Franklin Savings Bank.
Tracy, from The Bank, also volunteered.
And last (but not least!) is Aaron with Sir Speedy.
We also met Elyce O'Malley with Closet and Storage Concepts (I think my closets need some of this!) , Renee and Sydney Madole with Mo'Joe Coffeehouse (super sweet and really excited about their new coffee shop in Carneys Point), Kirsten with Zeus Creative Services (very highly recommended by every at the mixer for her ad and banner design) and Amy from the Woodstown Massage Boutique whom I can personally recommend...she is amazing! Overall the evening was a great success, I think we all learned a lot and it was fun hanging out with other business owners who are just excited about their business as we are.
