I want to thank you for stopping by.
I joined Care2 Network to share, learn and be a part of the solution. I hope you share the same goals.
It's been proven that one person CAN make a difference (i.e., Martin Luther King Jr, Ghandi, Einstein, etc...) So, let's pull our resources and strengths together to make an even bigger impact! It CAN be done!About Me:
I'm a Christian wife married to a wonderful, loving, and supportive man named Jim. I have my own business where I make and sell my own natural bath and body products: Naturals by Kristin
. Do come stop by!
We have two beautiful furry children:
Brandy is our darling doggie woggie. She is Border Collie/German Sheppard mix and a super sweetheart. When she isn't shaved, which she is right now for summer, she looks like a red fox! She is just gorgeous. America agreed when she was publicly voted for and won a contest to be 'Ms February' in the first annual Paws for Change calendar. We are so proud!
Mr. Peabody is our newest member. He is an adorable black and white kitty who loves playing with his mousies and shoe laces.
Both love to be held like children and cuddling on our shoulders. Luckily Brandy is only 30 lbs or we'd be in trouble with this! lol.Our Community:
We live in Racine, WI. Our downtown and marina are absolutely beautiful and I encourage you to visit us soon. Summer is especially fun with all the festivities. We have Salmon-A-Rama for the fishermen, Party on the Pavement, Trolley Rides, beautiful boutiques up and down Main Street, Hot Rod magazine just brought in over 3000 hot rods for a day, Dragon Boat Races, our own version of Summerfest(TM) is AngelFest (started and sponsored by a local Christian High School) - it's grown to unbelievable proportions and offers music for everyone! We have something to offer everyone, as you can see.
Most of our industry is now gone, some new industry is making it's way back in to our area but it's slow coming and competition for jobs is fierce here. While Milwaukee isn't really that far away, you need a good car to get to work up there. With jobs scarce, most people can't afford a decent car for the trip. What we do have here is low wage labor, and even that is tight. It's been sad around here. We are blessed that Jim is a one of a kind, rare and extremely talented Machinist/Tool & Die/Mold Maker. He's up to date on technology through his job and we are grateful they keep him up to date on this. But for me, work is elusive. Hence, the business venture.Naturals by Kristin:
My goal is to grow and help create jobs in our area. I also am shooting for all organic ingredients from local suppliers to help our local economy and keep the little farmer from going under. See where I'm going with this? It's a great goal!
Our products offer a wonderful and affordable alternative to products with chemicals that damage our environment, are tested on animals, and that are dangerous to our health.
I also offer wholesale and reseller discounts.
