Becky and I recently flew to Las Vegas to attend the ABC Expo. Now I understand that right now you are probably telepathically asking me what in the world an ABC Expo is, and, more importantly, why you should care. Both are excellent questions, and I am overjoyed to share with you the answers.
The All Baby and Child Expo is the largest trade show in America specializing in products for babies, children, and mommas. From maternity clothes to diapers, to strollers and car seats, the ABC is the event where retailers from the smallest mom & pop’s to the biggest box stores see thousands of products, and meet with producers of all sizes. But it’s actually a lot more than that. For many of us, it’s a much anticipated reunion.
It may sound odd, but the best part of this event, in my opinion, is catching up with the friends we have made over the years. Rarely does a year go by that I don’t find myself in a heated “Rock Band” contest with the team from Rockin’ Green. And the (not so) legendary “sticker war” between CJ’s and SuperUndies rages on. Also, we get the opportunity to meet face-to-face with our retailers. Collectively, we have the opportunity to talk about what our customers want, need, and are looking for. So don’t be shy about communicating with any of us, because we really are in this together to serve the people that shop in our stores, and buy our products.
I often point out that, to a large degree, most of us at the expo are the same people, doing the same thing – just doing it a little differently. Some of us make products, some of us have stores, but we are all just people and families truly dedicated to serving our customers, serving you, because without you, none of the rest matters.
In a galaxy far, far away....We offer our heartfelt thanks on behalf of the entire CJ’s BUTTer® Team to all our customers who have provided us with valuable feedback since we perfrmed our packaging change. We appreciate you sharing this feedback with us; we care deeply, and are listening. e have heard time and time [...]
Mom, you deserve a little TLC. Truth be told, you deserve a LOT of TLC! I hope that, as a busy mother, you are able to afford yourself an evening "off," to simply focus on yourself. We all need that little break to be our own Number 1, if only for an evening.My [...]
Can you keep a secret? For a mere $100-$300 dollars you could treat yourself to an all over body scrub at a spa. The result - healthy naturally soft glowing skin. You can also recreate this spa treatment at home for pennies on the dollar to exfoliate and to freshen up the skin. It's true [...]
Sunshine feels like a warm hugAs the weather warms up, I get more and more excited about participating in my favorite summer activities.

I am Mom, hear me roar!Being a mother is a lot of work. As a hard-working mom, hands can really take a beating. Between handling papers and homework, cooking, cleaning, yard work, and whatever else the day may hold, a mother’s hands can get brutalized!. Have you ever had one of those days [...]
Shaving, it’s something most of us tend to do but probably don’t give much thought to. Making a few modifications to your routine may substantially increase the overall health of your skin and make donning your favorite summer wear that much more pleasurable. I first tried CJ's Carcass Cleaner as a shaving cream [...]
I used to be one of those women who had the bathroom counter lined with bottles of hair products. I had the overnight hair repair cream, the leave-in conditioner, the curling cream, the heat protection cream, the fly-away tamer, the split-end serum, shine serum, hair milk... What's that burning smell? My bathroom was crowded with bottles and [...]
