8, eight, VIII

8/8/08 : It's a pretty special day around here.
Wrote about the significance of the number 8 here.
Recap: Eight - The word for "eight" in Chinese sounds similar to the word which means "prosper" or "wealth." In regional dialects the words for "eight" and "fortune" are also similar. It represents good luck.

Reiter8 (re-it-er-ate), my company's name was chosen to reflect the recycling element and I loved it because I could incorporate the number 8 into it - which I felt was catchy. At my first outdoor market, someone informed me about how lucky they number 8 was in Asian cultures. After that, I knew the name was a keeper.

Recently listed two 8 totes on Etsy. Check 'em out here and here.
Enjoy the day. Enjoy the possibilities.
