Today I published the first Pamper ME-Sap in a jar listing to my ETSY store. This is a huge launch. This has been my dream for many years. I am making a product with my hands and it will help people enjoy life just a little bit more. I love working with my hands. I love the smell of melting beeswax, mica powder and honey. My pantry is for more than just food. I read and research new beauty products for my eczema, acne and oily skin. If it helps me with these things I’m sure it will help others maintain already healthy skin. So many normal kitchen items help keep skin looking young and beautiful for many years. No preservatives, artificial colorants, filler or over processed oils. If you wouldn’t eat it, why put it on your skin? Ionization dissolves substances on your skin causing an absorption of minerals and vitamins. If you put garbage on your skin your body will absorb it and try to use it. If you put vitamins and minerals on your skin, with nothing extra, your skin AND body will look and feel amazingly young and fresh. If I can create this beautiful, appealing product that is easy to use and readily available at a reasonable price then I can change not only my own little world, but I can make a difference in the lives of many other people in this whole wide world. I can live a dream and accomplish so many goals.
In the coming weeks I will be making small batches of the individual items found in my Spa jars and photographing them to list as more items in my Pamper ME Spa line in my ETSY store. My husband is very excited and encouraging of my new business venture and has been helping me with photography, web sit and blog design, editing for my product listing, editing photos and helping style products. I couldn’t ask for a better helper. Even my son is curious about my “work” lately. A lot of typing, photos and crafting is going on around him and he is asking some pretty great questions. It’s not always easy to balance work, family and fun, but I believe this life is worth it. Sometimes the fun in my life IS making these products. Test batches, typing and crocheting has never been boring or daunting for me. I love working with my hands, touching the beeswax pellets (ALWAYS with clean hands!), pouring the oils, measuring the mica powder, winding a ball of yarn, tying slip knots, the motion of the crochet hook, un screwing jars and mixing oils into salt and baking soda. Tactile sensations thrill me. The smooth, rough, soft, hard, warm, cold or bumpy surfaces are what I live for every day.
The photo shoot was fun and turned out some great photos. Some of these might look familiar if you visit my ETSY store, but my blog readers get the extras. News, changes and even behind the scenes photos will be featured here every week.
Look for new posts Mondays, with the occasional Tuesday Tutorials. Hope to see you back next week, and Happy Crafting.
