3000 pieces of soap for Fertility Flower
WOW! Yes! It is true!
A short time ago, a lovely lady by the name of Kimberley bought some of my soap via Etsy.
She came back as a repeat buyer. This was and still is a good sign.
Just a couple of months ago, Kimberley made contact with me via email to ask if I would like to work on project for her...
Kimberley is in the process of launching a brand new website called Fertility Flower
A little bit about Fertility Flower:
Fertility Flower is a natural parenting resource designed to help predict ovulation and increase chances of conception.
In addition to the fertility tools, there are forums, interviews with inspiring moms. Kimberley is even in the midst of writing an art journaling course with prompts centered on the trying-to-conceive journey.
The website is designed by Mark Wilson of PensandPencilsandPens.com who lives in Truro (Cornwall). Mark did the website for Bat for Lashes and has done work for Gorillaz. Snazzy!
Fertility Flower has been gathering up a nice little following on Facebook.
The members are generally women who are trying to become pregnant, are with young children or currently pregnant.
Fertility Flower is also tweeting www.twitter.com/fertilityflower
so go follow if you wish to keep up with daily issues etc.
The website is expected to launch in June so for now you will see the holding page, but the link to join the facebook group is there so go do that now if you please.
Now then...here's the juicy bit from me.
Once the website launches, visitors will be invited to become a member, which will enable the user to track their fertility online. What a fabulous idea!
I'm guessing there will be quite the community via this source, and urge any of you reading this to join if you are an expectant mother...or hoping to be.
There is a little treat in store for the first 500 visitors to sign up for membership...that little treat is a 6pack of sample soaps from FuturePrimitive! Woop!
In the pack are x6 2oz soap slivers, randomly chosen by me. I have been so busy packaging up the sample packs I've barely had time to think of much else!
Here's where the number on this post title came from...500 packs of 6 soap samples = 3000 pieces of soap. Can you imagine?! I have a little more work to do, but I'm almost there. I have created new soaps, which I hope will be keepers and I've tweaked other soaps to make them ever better. I want the 500 people to love them!
I am eternally thankful to Kimberley for taking the time to ask me and for having faith in my product. I love making soap as much as my customers tell me they enjoy using it. I have complete faith in what I make. I have a passion, which runs deep for making it. I hope this shows in my creations.
I hope the 1st 500 love them too!
I shall keep you informed of the launch here, so be sure to check in often.
Thank you for your ears!
PS: more pics to come...I've taken lots!
