Meet Stacey (of the soul flower karma krewe)

Stacey first got in touch with us at Soul Flower by writing some amazing reviews on our website. Then we noticed she had soulflower in her email address &, there you go, the timing was right & the bond was formed 🙂 Welcome Stacey! We are excited to post your first review here on the blog about the Remember When… Backpack….coming soon!

Hey all you Soul Flower buds! My name is Stacey and I currently reside in Leominster, Massachusetts along with my mini lop-eared bunny, Terence. I recently turned 21 years old and am still in the process of figuring out exactly what I would like to spend the rest of my life doing. As of now, I work at the Leominster Public Library and play trumpet professionally for weddings, funerals, and special occasions.

I have 43 dreadlocks, am a vegetarian, and care deeply about people, animals, and the environment. I enjoy traveling, plants, bonsai, music (listening and playing!), reading, writing, poetry, cooking, making jewelry, and spending time with my wonderful boyfriend.

My Favorite Band: Dave Matthews Band
My Favorite Person: My amazing best friend and love of my life, Ricky.
My Favorite Vacation EVER: This past summer, my boyfriend and I took our first road trip across the U.S. It was a life-altering experience. I had no idea how beautiful my own country was!

Sheila, our own Karma Krewe jewelry weaver

Sheila is a long-time customer from Philly who makes some supa-sweet jewelry. Truth is, we love her stuff so much we wanted to carry it at Soul Flower. It ends up her items are so special and one-of-a-kind that it didn’t work out to sell them here. But we have stayed in touch & so dig the imagery in her product descriptions on her site, we can’t wait to read what she writes about Soul Flower goods….welcome Sheila!

My name is Sheila and I live and work in in the Philadelphia area. I love hanging out in the beautiful outdoors of The City of Brotherly Love, but I also love to travel with my favorite person, my hubby Evan. Our favorite trip so far was a road trip through the Pacific Northwest along highway 20 last Summer. This country is so beautiful! My soulflower gear made it easy to just pack and go!! In the Summer, you can find me in Sea Isle City, NJ relaxing on the beach and looking for inspiration in nature for my handcrafted jewelry which I sell online at http://www.sheilaferlet.etsy.com/.
my favorite music: Bob Marley and Johnny Cash

my favorite shoes: dansko clogs!

my favorite color: turquoise

Here’s Sarah of the Soul Flower Karma Krewe

Meet Sarah, student & karma krewe member extrodinaire. When we asked our buds to send us some ideas of what they like to write about, Sarah chose a cool poem she wrote about just hanging outside with her dog Mickey and loving life while watching the world go by. We love her vibe – she personifies a big part of what we try to evoke at Soul Flower (positivity and good vibes!!). Welcome Sarah!
My name is Sarah, i’m from Connecticut but I currently live in Plymouth, New Hampshire attending school at Plymouth State.

Karma Krewe Introductions: Meet Cam

We are excited to have Cam involved in our Karma Krewe, reviewing products & helping to spread the word about Soul-Flower.com. We love that she just got a vintage VW bus – the perfect vehicle to journey wildly with her family & friends.

Hey Buds! I’m Cam, and I live & love with my free-spirited family in coastal Georgia. I’m a thirty year old un/homeschooling mama. I enjoy spending my time hanging out at the beach, and walking softly on this earth. I believe in Mother Nature’s ability to sustain and nourish us with anything we need in this life.

I have a natural tendency to see the humor in any situation and I try to spread that vibe around. I try to live simpler, happier. I just bought a vintage VW bus, and cannot wait to get it on the road to a few festivals!

Karma Krewe: meet Trish B

Trish says “I am not a big blogger but I’m a talker” and a traveler and a music lover. Seems like the perfect combination, doesn’t it! Trish will be writing a bit but also will be hitting the streets, literally pounding the pavement at shows to help spead the Soul Flower vibe.

Meet Maggie of the Karma Krewe

Meet Lourenda of the Soul-Flower.com Karma Krewe

When we created the Karma Krewe, Lourenda, aka LouDog, was at the top of our list of customers we should ask to be on our street team – she has been buying from us for years, and probably more kind threads than any other customer. And not just that, she calls & emails us with positive messages all the time. Thanks for that LouDog! Here she is:

My name is Lourenda C. I was born and raised in St.Pete, FL. I currently live in Clarksville, TN, because i was stationed here due to the Army. My husband and I will be returning to St.Pete this year.

I was recently medically retired, so i spend most of my days on the computer, painting, crocheting, beading, and planning ahead for future shows and festivals. My favorite things to do other than spending time with my husband and animals, and listening to music, is being on the road, meeting new interesting, colorful people at shows and festivals.

My Favorite Vacation EVER: When i came home from Iraq for some r and r. I hadn’t seen my family for 8 months and i was able to come to the states for 15 days before i was to return.
My Favorite live show EVER: I got to see Allman Brothers Band, at the Wanee River Music festival, in live oak Florida! Awesome!!!! The best ever!!
My Favorite tree: Weeping Willow

Do you want to get lots of karma from your soulflower buds? Then answer the questions below & email them to peggy@soul-flower.com by January 21st, 2010.
