In the spirit of vacation, I embarked on some new hobbies that I hope to carry into the new year that are not Pink Papaya related. The first is one that I am still nervous I won't finish, and that is knitting. I began a scarf for my sister that was meant as a Christmas gift and now is intended to be a "gift when I finish." I am NOT very far. I did invest in some good quality yarn from Sophie's Fine Yarn Shoppe. Being in the store made me want to take on bigger and better projects, but first I need to successfully finish the one I've started. The second project is photography. I got a new camera for Christmas and LOVE it. I've been having fun playing with it and want to do some actual photography in the new year. I might take a class or try to volunteer my services in exchange for gathering experience.
I did manage to spread the Pink Papaya love from afar by gifting some of my favorite products to friends and family. Hopefully they get some pampering enjoyment. Whenever I give gifts, I try to give the ones that smell the best. There's something about some of our scents that just make me happy. One of my favorite gifts to give this holiday season was our Winter's Nap. It's a mini version of the hand scrub and shea butter and comes with gloves to hold in the moisture of the cream over night. I like to give gifts that you wouldn't purchase yourself but love to use. And on top of that, the smell of the scrub and shea butter is fantastic.

I'm very excited about some vendor events I have lined up. I did a craft show a few weeks ago, and one that I am super excited about is a wedding show I am doing in January. I'd like to do more wedding shows in the future. I think it's the right demographic for my products.

Don't forget, free gift with every $50 purchase. For Christmas, the gift is your choice of a gingerbread frost scrub or body butter. If you get two or more gifts, it's your choice of the scrub and butter or multiple of the same. The Gingerbread Frost is one of my favorite holiday scents. And the holiday scents are limited to Holiday 2011. My other favorite holiday scent is Holiday Hottie. I always struggle with self control when I place customer orders. I placed one this week and almost order three times as many products as I actually needed because I wanted extra holiday scents.
We have a lot of awesome options for gifts for teachers or coworkers, and they come in at cheaper prices. Some suggestions: we have a lotion candle for $10.50 in both Gingerbread Frost and Hot Buttered Rum. I'd never heard of a lotion candle before Pink Papaya, but how it works is you light it, let it burn until a pool of oil forms, blow out the candle, and then apply the soft was to your hands. It is AMAZING for dry, winter hands.

I've never been a product junkie. I have always used a few, high quality products. But now that I sell Pink Papaya, I have tried and started using a lot of products I never would have before. One product that I can't say enough good things about it eye shadow magnet.
