By Seth Truscott Finding the hustle: Cedarcrest girls By Seth Truscott So long, and thanks for High school students Emilia Glaser You can walk the block and find color and music in unexpected places in downtown Snoqualmie.
Champions of cheer: Total team effort delivers with first state title, surprise national finals appearance. By Seth Truscott. Paula: Then the way you had it laid out, just for listeners, each of the candles would be in a little votive and you could pull it and sniff each of them. Patchouli is horrible.
The sniff from the cup has an interesting story. When I first opened, you could not smell anything in my store, absolutely nothing in my store. I was distraught, because I made them all in the back, of course. I was totally distraught. He probably saved my business. So, I went and put them all in individual little cups and instructed everybody that came in to sniff from the cups so that they could actually smell what was what.
It worked perfectly. Marsha: I think of him all the time. Maybe someday again, but not right now. Paula: You kind of referenced this, that you no longer have a storefront. What has that been like for you to move from being somebody that is really front and center, and involved, and in the shop, greeting people, to go online and change up a business completely?
The first thing that screamed bloody murder was my ego. I literally spent all day being kind of the center of attention. The other thing that happened a little bit with retail is you would put your success on what the register showed. I missed it very much at first. I missed it very much. That was the whole reason I went into business for myself, to be there for people in my circle that needed me.
My grandson was born here — I have four in Georgia and I have one here in the Kansas City area — and I was able to spend a lot of time with him. That really is truly why I chose doing what I do this way, so I could be there for my kids and my family. This is really good for right now. Paula: I have to underline what you just said about how retail sometimes you can get wound up in measuring success by what the register is reading.
We have a lot of people that listen that are online coaches or entrepreneurs of some sort, that mostly are online, and we get so hung up on followers and downloads, and all those numbers. I started talking about the idea of playing small and getting really focused on the thing that matters.
I feel like there is a definitely a parallel to that. I love that you said that. Why did I go into this? It was so that you could spend time with the people that you love and be there for them in a meaningful way. Thank you. It is. We talked a little bit about how horrible I am at social media. Paula: So true. Thank you for being on. That was really part of a tradition that was anchored in something that was a family event, a road trip, and a fun thing to do with the family all together.
So, thank you for being on today and sharing that day with me in a new way. If you think about it, birthdays have candles, weddings have candles, there are so many celebrations that have candles. For example, today I got an online order for someone whose beloved cat has passed away and they were sending a condolence package to the people who lost their pet. I thought what an honor that I, in my own little way, can send them something that cheers them up a bit.
And to be there for you guys for Thanksgiving, in a weird way. I can go back to a place — this might even make me tear up a little bit — where my family is all together, just by the scent. A funny story is my dad was a barber at Stadium Barbershop in the s in Lawrence, Kansas, which no one had their hair cut ever in the s in Lawrence, but I have a scent called Stadium Barbershop and it smells just like his barbershop.
Being able to be a part of that and help people with those memories is really cool. My husband adores Christmas. He likes to walk in the house and it literally look like Christmas has thrown up everywhere in our house. One year it broke. My daughter searched high and low everywhere for a duplicate of this Christmas tree.
Just do it. I usually wait to pour a few of my favorites. I have one called Baby Jesus, which is baby powder. Psalm talks about how his robes are anointed in aloe, cassia, and myrrh. Anyway, I take those three scents aloe, cassia, and myrrh, add baby powder, and call it Baby Jesus.
Paula: Wow. Marsha: That candle without the baby powder is called Glory. That candle has been a very emotional candle for people, the scent of Christ. We can still enjoy this. Marsha: How many years did we spend doing it for everybody else? This year we have the opportunity to do it just for us.
Paula: I like that a lot. What does this celebration and this season mean to you? What could you be grateful for today and what do you want to bring forth into your world right now so that the rest of the year is amazing or happier? It was really easy to just be in the rat race of it all.
It has made us slow down and really appreciate things. I have to look at it that way, or I go into a big funk. There has to be something. Paula: I have a friend who just lost her father. She said it was a lot more emotional. He had been sick for a long time. It was all settling different. That idea of this time feels like that to me. Paula: Where I can see action to take, I do.
Paula: How did you either find your way out of it, or were there things in the midst of it that looking back you could see as a lesson learned? Messy middle to me is just as important as the good times. I have a story about I needed a box that would hold 12 candles. The kids were little, they were 4 and 5. I need these boxes. This entire process for me has been so anointed and a gift from God.
Even the little things that I needed to know, He helped me out with, the little tiny things. This is a gift from God that is always going to change. Say someone gives you a vase. Anything I find that comes from heaven and from God changes constantly. I think the human spirit so very much wants to fight against impermanence, like we want everything to just be the same. We would love that. Change is scary.
I am such a creature of habit. Are you kidding me? I have the same flannel fuzzy pajamas that I bring every day it gets cold. I like the same. That is the biggest thing as I get older, and hopefully a little wiser, is just to realize that the only constant is change and just to embrace that as much as the everyday ins and outs of things.
Paula: Thank you. Oh my goodness. That was so good. Marsha: We appreciate that. Paula: You guys have put your heart into this. What are you doing at Five Blessings for the holidays? It has some really good artwork on the front of it. Each little votive will have a different topper on it. Our gift tubes will be wrapped in Christmas paper that I buy from a gal on Etsy that actually makes the paper. Paula: I have to say that I love the tubes. Is there five votives in there?
Marsha: Six. You can do three or six. Just to king of help spread some joy. Paula: Okay. That one is super good. Talk about a tearjerker. That song is a tearjerker. Paula: It really is. I will link up to your shop and your Instagram and all of the things. Thank you so much for being on this week. This is such a treat. Thank you for sharing and dropping so much wisdom. This has been awesome. Be it via you send candles to someone that makes them happy, or anything, a plant, cookies, whatever.
We need to share the joy somehow. We need to up our ante here in joy. I think we can each help each other out by doing that. I really do. Paula: I like the imagery of conductors of joy, both from the being in front of an orchestra, but also the electrical version of I pass my joy to you and you pass it to the next person.
And random. I love the idea of just randomly. I really hope the Christmas spirt and the Thanksgiving spirit catches on this year. We overlooked it for so many years.
