Recently we've taken to wrapping our products for shipping in our favorite color - turquoise! Thank you for all your orders and loyalty to SHIMA products. New ones on the way any day!
It may have been snowing and furnace not working but our hearts were warm today with new friendships. Folks from St John the Baptizer in Glendale, AZ ( the warm part of the state ) are working with us on packaging. Raina Brown wrapped Anne Warner in a Pendleton blanket to keep her warm. Barbara Nation gave us wonderful advice. A great day of inspiration.
Last week Valor Christian High School from Denver, CO stayed on our campus. For most of the week they worked in the gardens here at GSM and at St. Michael's Indian School - when it wasn't snowing! On Friday it was just too wet and cold for garden work, so we invited them into the SHIMA' soap studio to wrap soap. They learned a bit about sizing, cutting, and quality control and had a good time. And best of all, they really helped us finish a big job.
Our business planning continues. Today we worked on our core values and related them to our Navajo core value of sa'ah naaghai Bik'eh Hozho.
"The earth is kin and its ways are grace. ... We discover the earth to be one vast, orchestrated anthem to beauty..." From The Way of the Human Being by Calvin Luther Martin. On this morning the sun rose with a renewed strength as we lean in to the Spring Equinox. We say thank you to Creator for this gift and this grace.
