Logo Colours?

A wee poll... which do you prefer?

I'm hoping to have blue bottles for products, so I fiddled with it a bit. Thanks!

Logo for My Other Business...

In my other life, I'm a doula (on maternity leave for now), breastfeeding counsellor and I also make birth related jewelry, sell blessing kits, and I have a blessingway/motherblessing booklet available for download. I need to completely overhaul the website, but for now, I wanted to show off my brand new logo:

I love it! What do you think? I think if you click on the picture, it'll take you to a nice, clean version.

Bellyblessings to all...

Book Score and Business Stuff...

I went to Business Victoria this afternoon to find out about the Venture Program. Briefly, it includes close to 75 hours of training workshops (including business development, marketing, research, bookkeeping & more), text & materials, 6 hours of business counselling, newsletter, use of their library, listing in their directory and more. They have a free info session on the 15th, and that's where I'm going to start. It's a two hour "Smart Start: Business Start-Up Essentials". Sounds like a good idea. I was thoroughly intimidated by just walking in the door. Wait 'til I tell them I want to start an alternative menstrual product business! Ah, well. I have to start somewhere. And one of the workshops is how to do presentations - something I desperately need!

After that, I hit the used bookstores looking for menstrual books and found lots in almost new and new condition. Here's what I found:

The New Menopausal Years: The Wise Woman Way by Weed
Red Flower: Rethinking Menstruation by Taylor
The Wise Wound: Menstruation and Everywoman by Shuttle & Redgrove
No More Periods? by Rako
Vinnie's Cramp Kicking Remedies and Other Clever Cures for PMS, Bloating and More! by Brand

Some fabulous finds to add to my collection. I also ordered these from Amazon.com today:

105 Ways to Celebrate Menstruation by McBride
Capitalizing on the Curse: The Business of Menstruation by Kissling

Can't wait until they get here. They've been on my wishlist for a long time! I absolutely adore books, and when my website is up, I'll post my own reviews.

Goodnight, Moon.


Conception of Moonwise Women...

Begin at the beginning...

Moonwise Women is in the conception stage. I feel like a first time pregnant mama, wanting to shout out from the rooftops that I have conceived. But for now, I will work quietly, diligently and wait. Before long I will post a birth announcement.

Until next time, stay in tune with the moon.
