Sorry for disappearing!

I know this is way overdue!

I believe I have some of the sweetest customers around as I have started getting emails the last few weeks asking if everything is okay since I haven't blogged very much or done many sales. If anything, things are actually pretty great! So great especially at awG that the pile of Clearance items I have yet to place on my website have been placed on the back burner so I could mix up more stock (specifically foundation and powder) and fill orders as they come in.

It just seemed that every time I would get a free moment thinking I would have time to blog or get the Clearance stuff up, either a large block of orders needed to be filled or I would have something going on with my non-business life that would take up my time considerably that I could not attend to awG. In handling awG,  I always want to make sure orders are filled first above anything else so that is actually what is taking up my time.

So just let me take this time to thank you all for continuing to support adorned with Grace--so much so that I suspect there are quite of few of you that are blogging about us and keeping us on our toes!

I do want to note that I am still behind on mixing up some of my stock so if I ever fall way too far behind, I *might* have to close the store down for a little while (hopefully not more than 2-4 weeks) to get caught up sometime this summer so if you are a regular customer who orders products from us, make sure to get your order in by mid-May 2011 just to make sure you have what you need should we have to temporarily close down early this summer.

As far as my own health, my arm is actually (dare I say or jinx it, lol) better and what I believe to be 100% now! The other thing that has kept me busy is taking full charge of my health which has included switching over to a 90% raw vegan diet, getting my cardio in for optimal circulation along with adding back in my strength training as my arm has healed, and attempting to REST more--the best recovery remedy of all!!!--that I think I am in even better health than when I left for Christmas! If things slow down in the near future, I may blog about this at my Graceful Coach Blog. I haven't been active there much either, but I do post to Twitter every other/couple days when I remember to since I am forced to keep it short and sweet over there, lol.

So that is what has been up with adorned with Grace! Hope all is well for every one of you!!!

Less than a week before closing!

Just reminding everyone that our store will be temporarily closing this Thursday, Sept. 8 with the last day to shop on Sept. 7. We have added some new Clearance items such as Grab Bags of the discontinued both sample and full-size of Blush & Eyecolors as well as Blush & Eyecolor bundles. Most of these items are going fast so if you would like to get them act soon! However, you may also risk it and wait to save more as we are going to be issuing a discount code either Sept. 4 or 5, so definitely check back here then. As with our other coupon codes, though, because it is a rather large percentage (more so than any other time we've issued them) this will only be for orders $15 or more, so go ahead and order if yours is less than $15 not including shipping. Our powders and foundations and some of the Clearance items are going pretty fast out of stock though so if you don't want to risk running out of inventory, definitely order soon! We want the last couple days to move
 I had no idea it would be so challenging. You would think that I could just “pick up” where we left off with adorned with Grace, but the market has changed pretty significantly in 10 years! I do not remember having to work so hard making the products and on the website many years ago. The latter has been especially difficulty—but…I think I had a bit of writer’s block when trying to get everything jump started. I realized that in continuing adorned with Grace, I felt important to clarify to myself what adorned with Grace would be. Back then, it started as a creative outlet for me, to make cosmetics for hard-to-match skin tones like mine, and to promote true beauty ideas for a positive influence in the world. All still true, of course! But before I could go any further, I felt impressed to elaborate on our values and mission, so this is what I wrote down last week: *To be a light to those in darkness who are held down from their true identity in God. *To unite women and model how we can

No Blog Special, BUT...a Special Article!

Believe It or Not: Words & Their Effect When I was a child, there was a show that my family and I loved to watch called, “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” where it showcased scientific marvels, interesting facts in history, and, sometimes, just fun, outrageous stories to excite and amaze its viewers. Well, I recently read an article that I thought would have fit right in with this show called, “Miraculous Messages from Water: How Water Reflects Our Consciousness.” It’s about an experiment conducted by a Japanese scientist where he tested to see the effect of words/thoughts on water. Sounding crazy already, lol? Well, read on as it gets even more interesting as he’s got pictures to prove it… To give a VERY general overview of his experiment ( *Click here to see the entire article ), he has done experiments on the effect of spoken AND written words on water as well as music. I’m just going to share with you some of the pictures of what I found most interesting of the resulting images
