Gracenotes is open for business!!!
This has been a long time coming and I am so excited be able to officially announce the opening of our very own at home business, gracenotes. This all began as an idea that I liked to dream about, of a business I could do from home with my daughters down the road. I dreamed of blessing those around us while developing useful skills in us at the same time. One day while talking to my sister who is about to graduate, I began to see how a business like this could be beneficial now, with my sisters. We soon brought our mom on board which was the most blessed move we ever made. After watching the hours and hours of the work she has put into our website, not to mention an overwhelming amount of thinking through different details, I can say without a doubt that we NEVER would have opened without her.
Why the name? It was one of Mom's original ideas, but I rejected it as it felt like we were naming the business after me. We spent days racking our brains for different ideas. We knew we wanted something to convey the purpose of our store. We're not selling essentials in life. We're selling those little extras that make life extra special. If you're familiar with musical terms, that is exactly what a grace note is! It's the tiny extra notes that add the little embellishments to make the music truly beautiful. So I gave in!
The road to get here has been much longer than anticipated! Our original plan was to open at the end of summer. We quickly moved that to October. It's hard to believe that we are actually here!
Let me assure you, we have no dreams of grandeur here! Our purpose the entire time has been to be a blessing to our customers. We've strived the whole way to keep our costs low and our site easy to use. Please bare with us as we continue to work out the kinks!
So this brings us to why you are really here! The GIVEAWAY!!!! We are actually going to be doing FIVE giveaways over the next five weeks, so stay tuned!
Today's giveaway is for some of our herbal tea and 100% organic cotton reusable tea bags. (my computer is being very difficult this morning and I can't get it to load ANY of our tea pictures!!! Grrr!).
Starting out we have four different teas. Mint Harmony ( a refreshing blend of peppermint and spearmint), Lavender Lemongrass (a light, subtle tea with a soothing feel to it), Peaceful Moments ( a blend of chamomile, spearmint and lemongrass that is wonderfully relaxing) and Vanilla Rooibos ( Have you ever tried rooibos? Try it! It is rich and deep yet completely caffeine free. We've mixed ours with some vanilla bean and vanilla to give it an even richer taste. Add a little milk and sugar.... perfection. But I digress!).
One of my favorite products on our entire site is our reusable tea bags. PICTURES WHERE ARE YOU?!?!? PLEASE go to the site and check these out. They are amazing. They work better than any tea ball or strainer I've ever used. Plus they are super easy to clean.
For our giveaway this week we are giving away a sampler pack (A sample of all four teas containing about 8 servings each, PLUS two of the tea bags) OR a full sized tea of your choice plus one tea bag to go with it.
