What is Carmon Goods and what do you guys create?
Carmon Goods LLC is our adventure in doing what feels right and sharing the results with anyone who feels good about it, too. The goods we sell vary from mixed media paintings to stationary to our all-natural, chemical-free line of personal care products called Carmon Scents.
What enlightened you both to co-create your establishment?
After a few years of coming together to make some epic handcrafted Christmas and Hanukkah gifts, we got to thinking. Trey’s wedding diptych panels hang on the walls of many of our dearest friends and family, and Jessica’s products have been enjoyed by family, friends, and salon clients alike. Most importantly, each of us experiences of sense of fulfillment when we get to create art and share it with those around us.
What is each of your roles?
We are partners and each share the job of getting “it” done. The definition of “it” changes pretty often, but we work well together and have different strengths to pull from.
How long have you both shared this passion together?
As long as we’ve been together we’ve been collaborating on art and artistic gifts.
You are happiest when…
We are happiest when covered in paint, glue, or some sort of essential oil (most of all when there is a combination of all three). Add some good music and friends, and we may as well be in heaven.
What qualities do you most like about each other?
J: I like that Trey is one of the most positive people I know. He always finds a way to have the most fun with a situation and can always put together the most delicious bite of a meal! The way to my heart is to make me laugh and to feed me. He has my whole heart!
T: I like that Jessica is fearless in moving forward with plans. I tend to over think things instead of just jumping in. She is an entrepreneur. She also is very kind, funny, thoughtful, and fun.
What’s next? Any other goals or adventures you hope to accomplish?
We will be married in October, and then the sky is the limit. The biggest goal is to stay fluid and change with life. We are doing it right if we are having fun and not getting too serious.
What is your favorite journey?
This life! Every single day is another step of this incredible journey we are taking together.
What’s your greatest extravagance?
Hopefully our honeymoon.
What is your motto?
Good for the body. Good for the soul.
