These last few weeks have been exciting and humbling all at the same time. This time last year, I was still trying to to come to terms with just having quit my big-girl job, and my company was still about 5 months away from even being started. I was still testing formulas, designing packaging, and wondering if it was even a good idea to do at all. And this year I've gotten a good idea of what one of Santa's elves must feel like; busy as heck, but completely elated about it. For the better part of the last few weeks I've making daily trips to the Post Office to mail out orders. They're not giant orders, or even giant amounts of small orders, but they're steady orders. I'm sure that'll slow down considerably now that the holiday rush is coming to an end. But what a great time I've had! People are responding really well to my products, and that's pretty wonderful.
It's terrifying to start a business, and even more so when it's with products that you've made with your own two hands. It's a total leap of faith. Just because I think my products are fantastic, doesn't mean anyone else will. I started making them for me, and my family, because of my sensitive skin issues, and my frustration with commercial products. So they were pretty specific to what I like, and what I wanted to see in my bath and body products. It's been humbling to have worked so hard on making the products that I love, and have had the recent response from so many people letting me know that they love them too.
So I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who has helped and supported me while I try to get this little company up and running. Hopefully you all continue to love it just as much as I do, so that it can keep growing, and accomplish some majorly awesome new stuff in the New Year.
Thanks for stopping by,
