The time has come - TO REOPEN!

RachelRene.Etsy.com will re-open by Noon, Wednesday August 25th!

I will be reopening the Etsy store tomorrow afternoon. I'm so excited! It's been such a joy to spend the last 7 weeks with my wonderful new little guy - but it's back to business now! He's just getting this new routine down which is leaving me plenty of time to work and create and of course, take orders! :0)

For the time being - I will only in stock items will be available. I will not be able to take any custom orders or requests - due to time constraints. Feel free to contact me about additional quantities of items that are in stock though. If possible - when only 1 of a particular product is left, I will make a note of this in the title, otherwise there should be at least 2 in stock.

I will also be relisting items through out the afternoon tomorrow and for the rest of the week. I've got a few new Vegan Deodorants, Lip Tints, and Silky Body Lotions to add to the shop.

If you have any questions or need anything - please feel free to contact me!

Thanks so much!

I've been know to be too ambitious :0)

So, I originally wanted to re-open my Etsy shop AND website on the 20th of August. I've been struggling to get stuff done while caring for our newborn son. It hasn't been easy and as any new mother knows, sometimes we try to be Superwoman and then beat ourselves up when we don't get everything done.

So while sitting on the deck with my husband the other night unleashing my "I've got no time for..." speech on him, I realized that I am probably expecting a little too much of myself giving the fact that the baby is only 4 weeks old. Instead of spending the last 2 weeks trying to do everything - I should have just been learning to take everything in stride and do only what I can and NOT beat myself up when I don't get the whole house cleaned, and dinner on the table at 6pm, and if I don't get all the laundry done in one day - no one but me is going to know.

So the moral of the story is that while doing a little thinking I've made just a few decisions. I'm pushing the opening of the Etsy shop back to sometime towards the end of August/beginning of September and I will not be opening the website again.

Maintaining both a website and the Etsy shop would be WAY more time consuming then just having the Etsy Shop. So, in the very near future, if you visit ShopRachelRene.com you will be forwarded to my Etsy shop at RachelRene.etsy.com

And when I do reopen at least for the first month or two, I will only be selling what I have in stock and made. I will not be doing any custom orders.

I'll be keeping you posted here and on my Facebook page as well - so keep checking back!!!

Thanks for being so understanding!!! I can't wait to get back into the swing of things!

NEW - Vegan Deodorant Sticks

I've been gearing up to open shop later this month and in doing so I've started making new products! First to make it's debut in my Etsy shop and on my website are Vegan Deodorant Sticks! These are amazing!!

They are made from a vegetable base that is free of aluminum and bactericides. It works by neutralizing the odor-causing bacteria that occurs when we perspire, without interfering with the body's natural cooling process - which is sweating.

Some of the wonderful ingredients that make up this awesome new product are Vegetable Protein, Castor Oil, Chamomile Flower Extract, Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, and Grapefruit Seed Extract.

So far it is available in Green Tea & Cucumber, Creamy Orange Coconut, Pure Rain, and Black Raspberry Vanilla. More scents will be listed as time allows, however I am open to suggestions so let me know what scents you'd like to see in a deodorant!

Each stick is 3oz (80gr) and comes in a white twist tube.
