OT: I started my new business today and I am SO excited!
I don't know if I can mention what it is here, as it is not knitting related at all ... but I'm just so excited that I had to SHOUT IT to someone!

I received all of my start-up materials today -- that UPS man -- and I sorted it all out and I'm rip roarin' to go. It's just so wonderful to be starting something new, something I'm really excited about!!!

Anyway, if you read this far, thanks for listening to me gush!

Okay, I asked Amy if I could talk about this, and she said yes, so ....

The business is Arbonne, a Swiss skin care/health & wellness company that makes the best herbal and botanically based products! I am so, so excited because the products TOTALLY ROCK! The anti-aging skin care line is phenomenal -- there is a plastic surgeon in my town recommending it to patients who are seeking face lifts!!! -- and I'm just so excited for everyone in the entire world to try it.

If you've seen some of my other posts, you'll see that I'm pretty much a hippie, and I really love that this company is using natural, botanical products and coming up with amazing results.

Plus, I think this could be my "niche", ya know? Like, up until now, I didn't even know what I wanted to be when I grew up (and I'm in my thirties ) and I think maybe I've found it. (Or, at the very least, a way for me to stay home with my kids and make some income so that I can continue to search for it, kwim?)

Sorry, I know I'm going on and on and on, ad nauseum. I'm just so thrilled and excited and freakin' BOUNCY! :D

Best of luck!!

And you may have a potential customer here! I'm referring specifically to ME! I'm on the hunt for really good facial products. My face is super sensitive, so most anti-aging products end up burning my face and giving me wee rashes or a strange kind of tender flush. :(
