Blogging has been something on our “To Do” list for quite some time. In fact, we have tried it once, but never did any updates. Well, going into 2008, we are going to make an effort to do much better than in the past. Therefore, we are not making any promises of constant posts!
It is great to see 2007 come to an end and with God’s grace and mercy, it will be even better to see a new year…2008! December 8th of 2007 was Karess Krafters 2nd birthday and we were excited to see how much we had grown since 2006. Our sales in 2007, tripled from 2006, largely due to use doing 20 additional Arts and Crafts Festivals than the previous year. Not only did it afford us more exposure, but it was also rewarding to pick up two wholesale accounts and more retail customers. God is AWESOME!
Moving forward into 2008, we will be offering a “Scent of the Month” every month. What this means is at the beginning of each month our newsletter subscribers will be the first to know about the fragrance for the month. Non-subscribers can either subscribe on our site or visit our website (www.karesskrafters.com) at the beginning of each month to get the featured scent’s details. The fragrance showcased will be offered in our signature handmade soap recipe and in some cases a moisturizer and/or roll on body perfume will be available as well. In case you’re wondering why some fragrances will be in a soap only, it is because some scent blends are only suited for a soap. Such as, when we blend a fragrance for our soap that contains Neem (which has a distinct smell of its own), it’s not always suited for a leave on body application, such as lotion. Also, the chemistry in lotion making and soap making are in two different arenas, which in many cases can cause the scent blend to take on another aroma of its own.
We have a great new scent line up for 2008, so stay tuned for more details as they begin to unfold in February 2008!
