I Love Uniquely Packaged Items................I DO!

So I am currently in the process of ordering packaging for the new Curat Balm. So many choices, so many directions to go in, as far as images and fonts and such. I have finally decided to keep it very simple and clean, with white and black as the main color scheme. Hopefully you will agree and like what I have chosen to do, but the most important thing is product results right? Right! I can say that the will love!

On my packaging quest I really wanted to see what others were doing as far as balms are concerned, so I did what every red-blooded soaper would do, I Googled "balms" lol!  One evening while surfing the net, Google gave me an interesting lead off into the world of hair pomades. I guess since many were packaged in the same manner as body balms, the search Angels wanted to give me a look inside another realm of creativity.

Do you use a hair pomade? Have you ever? Well, I do. I have a faux-hawk and it needs to be stylishly "hawkish" everyday. So into my hair, I apply pomades and holding pastes from time to time. What I have found are some really cool pomade choices! I intend to purchase a few just for the packaging design alone. Here's the neatest ones I came across, and if you know of others, please add in your comments. Enjoy the Pomade Parade!

.....So, I signed up to Square (credit/debit payments on the go)...months ago before it was hip! When it came I was so ready to get rolling and accepting cards at events, but as I tried to plug the little square reader into my smartphone, I quickly found out my phone was a dumbphone. I have a G1 Android, and while it allowed for the Square app to connect, the reader couldn't. Yes, I know I can key in the card info, but I will be subject to extra fees so what's the point.

I have Square Envy! All my crafter friends have the app, the card reader in their phone and they are happy as honey bees with a ton of pollen. Crap! I love my Android phone, and really don't have the cash to fork out 300 bucks to upgrade, well, kinda sorta but you don't want me to go into a tirade about how the electronic sector of the world has chained us to technology and greedy communications providers making a ton of loot by selling a phone that costs 4 bucks to make for 400 bucks. And, they'll just come out with a newer model in 24 hours anyway! Yep, envious of my Square friends.

As for the service, i have used it with a friend's phone and it is wonderful. You punch in the total, swipe the client card, they sign on your touch screen and everyone is happy. Well, except ME.

I will go and get a phone it's silly not to, even though i absolutely love the G1.
