Hi OMHG! I am Cherish Driskell of Operation Soapbox and I am “mommy” to some of the most awesome kiddos and pets around. We have lived in Abilene, Texas for ten years. I was medically separated from the Air Force for an injury I received while on duty in August of 2012 and now I get to support my family full-time as well as cheer on my better half who is still active-duty military.
Abilene, TX is pretty nifty as small towns go; we have a fantastic crafting and art community that is very active and supportive. We also have a few big cities for entertainment and shopping nearby such as Dallas, Austin & Fredericksburg, TX or if you want to visit the coast and get in some deep sea fishing Rockport, TX is the perfect place to go.
I started Operation Soapbox “officially” after two years of planning in May of this year and I have just been running with the punches that have been thrown my way ever since. Between website troubles, poor choice of a merchant account, complete overhaul of our branding and intense business & life changing courses offered by Lucky break Consulting; I have really kept afloat by giving my business 110% every day because I am truly passionate about my businesses’ mission is to offer sustainable, fair-trade and eco-friendly products for the whole family.
Our shipping & labelling table, Yes! Those are my branding boards from Pauselius on the white board being held up by some awesome Angry Birds magnets. You can learn more about my collaboration with Matt & Darice from Pauselius here.
