What a crazy few months we’ve had! School started in August and I’m not sure any of us have caught our breath since! Soccer is wrapping up this week and both kids have enjoyed playing so much. Between bow hunting and shows Brandon and I have only made it to a couple of games. Luckily Grandma has been a willing cheerleader for our babies when we aren’t there. Hunting has moved from bow season to rifle season so Brandon will start going without me more and that leaves me time to create! We are at an interesting brink with the business. I feel like we’re at an edge and I’m excited to see what God has in store for our little business but I’m also plagued by fear and anxiety for no apparent reason. Isn’t that the way life works sometimes…complete faith next to stifling anxiety. So, I’m choosing to trust and am taking each step prayerfully and trying to go wherever God is taking us.
The Potato Festival in Manhattan, Fall Festival in Belgrade, and the What Women Want Expo in Great Falls all went well. We have met so many amazing people, have gotten to hear glowing stories from our customers on how some of our products have helped heal skin conditions that they have for a long time, and new customers trying out our products only to return right away for various reasons (for instance, they haven’t been able to breath for six months and Cold Buster started clearing up their sinuses right away)! I am so grateful for these lovely stories as that is truly why we are doing this as a business. My business skills are lacking in so many areas (don’t get me started on marketing) but to be reminded that we are doing this so we can try to help alleviate aches, pains, rashes, congestion, you name it, then everything else falls into place. We have some fun special order requests that have been so fulfilling to create and follow the journey of how they are working…or needing to be tweaked!
We’ve made it into a couple of new stores! You can find our entire line in Butte at Beautiful Butte and Beyond located at 21 N Main St. We also have our lip balms in Big Sky at Wild Trout Outfitters. We are also meeting with a couple of other stores so we’ll keep you posted!
We are participating in a few shows this holiday season. We will be at the Montana Parent Holiday Bazaar on November 19th at the Holiday Inn from 10-4pm. We will also have our open house here at our home again on Dec 10th so let me know if you would like more information!
We had pictures taken professionally by the amazing Megan of Megan Marie Imagery for a more personal look at our company. I can’t wait to start putting the pictures on our website and making new signs for our booths at shows.
Hope you are well! Thanks for all the support we continue to get, we couldn’t do it without you.
I am a wife and stay-at-home mom who enjoys making 100% natural body care products that will actually heal ailments using fixed oils and pure essential oils.
