Since the start of the new year, we have been revamping our website to allow our customers a better shopping experience on their phones. We are mobile friendly now! We hope that you test us out, peruse our site and let us know any feedback that you might have. Since we haven’t done a blog post since last December, it also has felt good to take a step back and to have some brain space to reflect on Swoop and see what needs tweaking and to also think about the future of Swoop. I always get inspired by just the tiniest moments or things that cross my path at certain times. I love these “creative happenings” and want to take charge right away but running a business has been a true test of patience for me and I know these “creative happenings” just take time to implement properly. So… stay tuned for exciting new things that will be happening around here.

PS – You might notice that there is an awesome new COLOR on the site in the MINI section called SUN BURST! We had such a high request for a yellowish color so here you go! It’s a very deep yellow-goldish almost mango-like color. If you are looking for a super bold, bright pop of color in your home, this is the bag for you! We will officially be launching this color later, but for now… those of you lucky enough to snatch up the SUN BURST mini will get the first pick of the crop!

Calling all Lego Lovers! Brickcon 2014.

We spent this past weekend as a vendor at the amazing BrickCon 2014 Lego Exhibition here in Seattle. The level of talent that was at this event was incredible!! BrickCon exhibits models created by adult LEGO® hobbyists (otherwise known as the AFOL – Adult Fans Of Lego – community) from around the nation and the world! I was blown away by so many cool designs and creations and all the fans that came through the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall. We had such great feedback and comments from people stopping by our booth to check out Swoop Bags! Since we don’t always hear from our customers since they make their transactions online, it was so rewarding to meet and talk with them in person and hear their stories and to be able to tell our Swoop Bag story.

We got lucky enough to have our booth set up next to Miss Courageous who makes super, cool, LEGO jewelry such as rings, tie clips, necklaces, money clips, hair pins other funky Lego-inspired designs.

Moving down vendor row… there was the super, talented Mariann Asanuma from Building Secrets who was previously a master builder at LEGOLAND. Her motto: “From big to small I can build it all.” And that is true! Her booth was packed with Lego jewelry, key chains, bracelets and more.

Another vendor who also specializes in Lego designed jewelry is Cutebricks. Check out her groovy display and her online Etsy shop, too!

We also met Joe Meno, Editor in Chief of Brick Journal – “A magazine for Lego® enthusiasts of all ages!” You can purchase a tangible hard-copy subscription to this magazine or read about recent articles online. I am thinking this would be a good gift idea for my kid’s friends or anyone who wants to know the latest and greatest about what is happening in the world of Lego®.

Another fun vendor was Brickshirts – check out their COOL designs!

We thank all the MANY people at BrickCon for making this event possible and to be able to be a vendor and share our Lego-inspired products with the Lego community. And of course, none of this would be possible without LEGO®! Thank you! (More vendors and sponsors listed here.) See you next year :)

What’s in your Swoop MINI bag? Our MINI bag is not just for Lego pieces! In fact, it can be used as a cosmetic bag, for knitting needles and yarn, for kid’s snacks, golf balls, collecting rocks on the beach… the options are endless. I decided to feature our “Black Cat” Mini bag with all our favorite, tried and true, tested beauty products.

#1 Josie Maran SPF Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 – chemical FREE :)
#2 Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant (exfoliant)
#3 Kerastase Elixir Ultime Oleo-Complexe (decreases frizz, adds shine and has an amazing scent!)
#4 Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer broad spectrum SPF 20 (very sheer, light weight, natural coverage)
#5 NARS (for a natural look their eye shadow colors are great)
#6 Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream (a little goes a LONG way – a more intensive moisturizer – all natural)
#7 ROC Retinol Deep Wrinkle SPF 15 Daily Moisturizer (a little anti-aging wrinkle control)

Head on over to our Facebook Page and we are giving away one BLACK CAT MINI bag today! Winner will be selected by end of day Friday, June 27th.
