"Assoonaz" & Kids Choice Awards!

If I ever have another child, I’m going to name it Assoonaz.


Because I already say that name about fifty times a day.

“Assoonaz CHA is over, I’ll get caught up!”
“Assoonaz I finish cleaning out the art room I’ll finish washing the blankets.”
“Assoonaz I finish these next batch of projects, I work on the cruise stuff.’
“Assoonaz the cruise stuff is done, I’ll relax!”

Assoonaz is here to stay. But for very good reason. I came home from the cruise to find a whole new round of exciting projects to work on and tend to. One of them is for tomorrow (Friday).

Earlier this week my boss, Alyson, asked if I could demo Tulip One-Step Tie Dye Kits at a kid function in Los Angeles. She told me the details, but all I heard was “Demo. Los Angeles. Friday. Kids.”

Today I printed off the one-sheet of all the details. Um, it’s not just any kids event…


I’m going to be demoing and handing out the tie dye kits to celebrities and their kids, as well as snapping photos of the guests who visit my table. I shouldn’t be as excited as I am. I spent many years as an entertainment reporter where I interviewed movie stars face-to-face and on the phone on a regular basis. But growing up in the ’80s made me obsessed with pop culture. I still swoon and all giddy about entertainment news and celebrity spotting. So, heck yah, I am stoked! I will be showing off every feature and benefit of the Tulip One-Step Tie Dye Kit to anyone and everyone who comes by!

I fly out at 7:30 am, and catch the 6 p.m. flight home. One day. I have no idea what to expect, I’ll be Twittering and blogging all day. Well, if I can squeeze in the time to do it.

New topic.

Today I was searching through old photos on my computer and came across some early product development stuff. Here is a sketch of ideas I had for crystal iron-ons.

Two of the three did not work, but one did, recognize it?. I also came across the first-ever licensing job Patrick and I had. It was for Lowe’s Home Improvement Stores. One day at while working in the newsroom about five years ago, I got a phone call from a manufacturer who needed someone to design a line of Hispanic-themed wallpaper accessories. My agent set it up and Patrick and I had exactly four days to brainstorm, sketch and design the pieces. We had never done any kind of product development before, so it was like trying to find a seed bead in the sand. Very difficult! But, we pulled it off! I did the girls line and Patrick did the boys.

We’ve come a long way! Well, I’m off to bed, I have to wake up in a few hours to catch my flight!

Assoonaz I’m done blogging and cleaning my room, I’ll hit the sack. Have a super weekend!

Love & light,

  1. I have the funniest image in my head of some super famous celeb – Tom Cruise, Will Smith, Brad Pitt in the kitchen with their kid(s) doing a tie dye kit 🙂 LOL just really makes me giggle. I know that they do fun stuff with their kids just like we do, but the image in my head, the whole idea is just hysterically funny.
