Is this thing on? [Jan. 26th, 2015|11:07 am]
CrssaFox
I'm just dropping a quick note here since I've had a couple of people get in touch with me about it already.

Yesterday morning I deactivated my Facebook account, but it's only temporary. There's been a little bit of drama here, and a little bit there, and it adds up, of course. I'm busy trying to focus on cultivating two different businesses, as well as planning a move north within the next year, so I'm trying to spend a little time regrouping and avoiding Facebook.

There wasn't any one specific cause, and I assure you, I'll be back on Facebook in a short time. But for now I'm busy preparing my products for both Adorable Foxie (we are going to be at Megacon again this year, and need to be prepared!) as well as for Scrub Oak Soaps (which will also be at Mega). I'm getting things listed on Etsy, and hope to upload some stuff on FA within the next few days as well. A break from Facebook makes me more likely to update the things I -need- to update. :P

I can always be reached via e-mail, and I'm on Skype (guess the username :P) if you need to get in touch. So please don't worry, if you were. ;)

Oh I'm glad to hear it's only temporary!
Have you decided whereabouts up north you are aiming to move and open up shop? A big move is pretty exciting :)

Let's just say, we should be able to meet up for a day trip. ;) New England for sure!

Oh awesome! It'll be fun to have a visit sometime :) And when your shop opens I'll definitely have to come see it and do some shopping.

Are you planning any new floral or fruity scents for your soaps for spring/summer? And have you ever considered making whipped soaps? I just recently discovered those on Etsy (though I haven't bought/tried any yet), but the idea of soft fluffy whipped soap sounds super awesome to me.

I just researched whipped soaps and they sound amazing! I'll definitely give some a try. What are some fruity scents that you like? I'm still working on building a variety of base stock and I'd like to have something together in order to do events this summer. One combo that I know works well is banana and avocado. I'd love to try that! Fruity is hard to do with all natural soaps since the scents can be hard to capture, but I can always try!

Whipped soaps really DO sound cool! I'd gladly buy that from you if you started selling some.

There are a lot of fruity scents I love, and actually banana is a favourite so banana/avocado sounds pretty sweet. I also like coconut, lychee, pear, melon, kiwi, apple and cherry a lot. One of my absolute favourite scents, albeit not fruit related, is almond. Really the only fruit scents I'm not fond of are citrus and strawberry.

Lychee is on the to-do list, for sure! I want to do a piña colada soap for the summer, too. :D

OMG OMG I loooove lychee and it's a scent I almost never see. Please poke me whenever you release that one because I HAVE to have it! Piña colada would also interest me.

Hahaha I will! Actually, it sounds like the whipped soap would work really well for Lychee. Part of the trouble with doing fruity scented soap is that if you use real fruit, it scorches with the temperatures you have to use. Since the whipped is done at room temperature, the fruit wouldn't scorch and it just might work!

I will buy the hell out of fruity whipped soaps when you have those stocked <3

I had to delete my Twitter account, so I understand.

Sometimes it's just too much to juggle. I still have Twitter but I never check it. Oops.

Glad you've posted here; since FB decided to make Louie's account into a fan page, I can't see a whole heck of a lot of pages anymore :P

Good luck on the con, and the move (when it happens!)

What! No wonder I haven't seen much from you lately. Can you even -have- a fan page without a main account? Bummer though...

And thanks! :)

Apparently, you can. I'd rather not have to get one for myself, as I'm not entirely sure that I want the rest of the drama that I don't see now :)

Also, check to see that you've still friended him; when I had to change it over, I lost a ton of friends, especially other fan pages and businesses. Since Oct, I haven't posted much, because he's been in hibernation; the pics of him in Memphis was the last entry.

Huh, okay, I'll check! I don't want to lose touch. Bad enough I don't do furry cons anymore, I have no idea when I'll get to see you again!

Oh HI! I was wondering what ever happened to you . I am starting to plan for FWA and I remembered your famous pizza parties.

Yeah, I'm still around! Sort of, lol. Last year FWA was during Megacon which I was working so we couldn't go. Same story this year, we're gonna have to miss it again! I'm so bummed!

Are you still working at the House of Mouse? I'm going to be doing the 5k next month with my sister, maybe we can hang out or do lunch or something. :D
