Business on MySpace

What started out as a "social gathering of friends" on MySpace, turned into a pretty good boost for business.

My friends and I decided to set up accounts on MySpace as a way to converse with friends who don't live nearby. It was fun and entertaining - and became an alternative to emailing each other. Then I looked into the Groups they had on the site. I came across one that was of interest to me - Small Business Entrepreneurs. I figured I'd see how it was. I gained a lot of business through it.

I have to say that I am very happy with the site. I know some people are weary of it, based on some bad publicity. But since I'm not on there to meet people (just chatting with current friends) - some businesses may gain more business through it. I came across many people on there for the sole purpose of their small business. And I hope they get as much out of it as I have.

Bridal Shower Favors

The season is upon us….bridal showers are being planned and they need favors! Something elegant, something everyone needs…..Lavender Bath Salts. It’s perfect for any bridal shower favor, especially if you have a Paris or French theme. And it’s so easy to make! I can’t tell you how many of these we have made over the years for people – and they still are one of the most popular handmade favors.

Purchase tins with clear tops. We got these wholesale at SKS Packaging. You can purchase Epsom salt at most grocery stores (since epsom salt helps ease sore muscles…look in the aisle that sells shoe gels, foot creams, etc.). There are different sizes of tins, so make sure you do the math before under-buying or overbuying the salts and lavender. Each tin will only need 2-3 pinches of lavender. We got lavender wholesale at Wholesale Supplies Plus.

Now you can tie a pretty ribbon around it. But you will need a hang tag with the bridal shower information on it. Get cute tags at My Own Labels. You can choose from a variety of styles and colors to coordinate with the wedding colors or with the theme of the shower.


Handmade Thank You Gifts – Who Could Resist?

Someone did a nice favor for you. Maybe they watched your house or pet while you were away. They may have run some errands for you or driven you somewhere because your car was in the shop.

No matter what the reason, if you need to thank someone for something, give them a gift of handmade bath products. This not only tells them that they deserve to pamper themselves, but it also tells that you are so appreciative that you wanted to create a “spa at home” just for them!

Bath salts, bath teas, fizzies, scrubs, and bubble baths are only a few of the choices you have. With a variety of scents, you are sure to entice their senses.

Visit Sublime Dragonfly to purchase some wonderful items to create that perfect Thank You gift. We have worked hard to bring you quality products that you can aid in relaxation, rejuvination and self-pampering! :)
