It’s an exciting day here at Choosing Beauty! For the past several years, despite so many sweet requests from readers and friends,  I’ve resisted the nudge to create gifts, greeting cards and apparel featuring my photos and reflections. I wasn’t willing to turn my dining room into a shipping center (I have no idea how my favorite etsy artists manage it all!) and the companies I tried to work with never quite met my quality needs.
Then someone mentioned Zazzle to me at just the right time, when I was feeling ready to start exploring this again. So, I started experimenting with this super cool service, designing items that reflect the Choosing Beauty mission, ordering samples to make sure the items met my standards, and creating my first ever store. And today, I’m swinging open the virtual doors to THE BEAUTY SHOP, full of apparel, gifts and greeting cards that I think (and hope and pray) you’ll like.
And, since it’s What The Wednesday, we’ve got to do a giveaway, people! This week one of you lucky readers will win a $25 gift certificate to buy the item(s) of your choice from my store!
