I got an email on Sunday from a guy in L.A. who works for a company specializing in gifting events for celebrities. He wanted to know if I could participate in gift bags for their gifting lounge for the Oscars. I thought about it for awhile, then decided to go for it. The problem was, he needed it in a week, and I needed 100! I brainstormed for awhile, then decided to showcase Add-A-Tubes. Below is a picture of the bag that we did. We put in a soap sack, and a shrinkwrapped bundle of 5 'tubes, along with business cards, coupons, and a hook. So I decided this on Monday and stuffed the bags with the soap sacks that day. The next morning I woke up and thought "OMG, Fedex takes forever to get to California!" I looked it up - he needed it by Monday the 18th. I realized that I had to ship it that day (Tuesday) for it to get there on time. I didn't think I could do it but I did. I was absolutely exhausted and couldn't have done it without my kids, who helped after school. I made it to Fedex Kinko's with a 42 pound box with 20 minutes to spare!
I think I will use these as a way to package Add-A-Tubes for gifts on the site. Look for it!
