Have you ever thought “I can do what she does”?  Of course you can!  Whether you are just looking for the discounts for you, your friends and your family or a part-time job or maybe you need a break for some girl time; Thirty One may be the answer for you.  There are TWO ways to join until the end of February:

First is the traditional enrollment kit with over $400 in products for just $99

OR, if you are strapped for cash, why not try this

Whichever way you pick, I will do your launch party via Facebook (or a home party, if you are local).  Start making money as soon as you enroll.  Base commission is 25% but you could make up to 40% with the NEW Thirty One marketplace.  Lots of options to help you design a business which works for you.

Which option will you pick – joining my team, hosting a party, the monthly club/ budget plan or just shopping?

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

How To Design a Holiday Gallery Wall

Happy Monday!  I am grateful to Thirty One for sharing these holiday ideas with us.  I may be crafty but I definitely “flop” when it comes to organizing photos or wall art.  Mine never seem to blend which is why I usually wait for my daughter to visit to help.

Whether it is for your own home or as the perfect personalized gift, switching out seasonal wall art makes for a festive holiday home – in a snap!  I would never think of doing this but it makes so much sense!  We decorate the house for the holidays, why not change out the pictures too?  The Statement Canvas Wall Art is available in two sizes and can put a little holiday in your halls.
Cheerful holiday colors showcase this wall art as something special – and seasonal. Mark a little one’s first Christmas with a gorgeous custom gift or share a sweet holiday sentiment filled with joy.  More ideas: Think of Christmas-themed songs, hymns and poems for inspiration, or pick a fun phrase.

  • Get your jingle on
  • Have yourself a merry little Christmas
  • Joy to the world
  • Comfort & Joy
  • Holly Jolly
  • Dear Santa: Define “good”

Thinking of leaving things up for the winter instead of just for the holiday season?  Pick cool blues and frosty hues to personalize your home décor for winter. Messages which celebrate the season make great gifts for families of any background and have the greatest longevity for displaying each year!  What is your favorite (or theirs) holiday song?You can find inspiration in a section of lyrics from a classic winter song:

  • In the meadow we can build a snowman
  • Fa la la la la (la la la la)!
  • Merry & Bright
  • Jingle all the way
  • All is calm, all is bright

No matter where you call home, you can welcome your guests (and Santa!) with customized wall art which speaks to you and your family. Are you a military family?  We have some awesome suggestions on how to keep “your home” close to your heart and showcase to your friends.  More phrase ideas:

  • Home for the holidays
  • Santa’s Workshop
  • [Name]’s Christmas Tree Farm
  • Santa, stop here!
  • All hearts come home for Christmas

We know the reason for the season so why not display or gift a beautifully printed Bible verse as a keepsake for Christmas.  Use their favorite verse, or inspire someone who is struggling.  Here are some more ideas:

  • Matthew 2:10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced
  • Luke 2:10 Behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people
  • Luke 2:12 Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger
  • Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given

Whether you need a seasonal display or are going to leave it up year round, Thirty One has somethings to fit all of your needs.

Thirty-One is NOT just totes and purses.  We have a variety of home décor you can customize for even the most difficult person on your holiday list.   You can also customize throw pillows, decorative tins and rustic wood pieces (Close to Home tray).

Need help with the perfect gift?  I am happy to help.  Have a budget?  Let me help you find the best deal.  Who is the hardest person to buy for on your gift list?

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

 

Tasty Tuesday Recipes

Tasty Tuesday: Restaurant Style Salsa

I don’t know about you but I LOVE salsa…. all kinds.  Thick and chunky, black bean, peach, mango, pineapple – yes, I could go on forever since there are so many different kinds.  I use it on everything – dressing on my salad, on my burgers, and with my eggs.  You get the picture, right?  Salsa is delish! And there’s nothing better than restaurant salsa – hot and spicy.

I am always looking for a healthy, fresh, easy recipe for salsa.  I like salsa with fresh veggies when I am putting it on a salad or a burger BUT when it comes to dipping chips, I want it to taste like the yummy kind I find in my favorite Mexican restaurant.

This is a great recipe because you use ingredients you can keep in your pantry.  So, when friends drop by for a visit or you need a quick snack for family, you can whip this up. You can mix it up in a food processor, a blender or I have even used my Magic Bullet.

Thank you to Creating My Happiness for sharing this recipe with us:

Ingredients

1 28 oz can whole peeled tomatoes, drained
2 10 oz can Rotel Original
1 jalepeno pepper
1/4 cup lime juice
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cumin
1 tbsp cilantro

Directions:

  • Slice jalepeno, set aside (keep as many seeds as you like)
  • Strain the tomatoes, and the Rotel.  Dump in a colander and let the excess juice drain.  DO NOT rinse them
  • Place all ingredients in Ninja (or processor, blender).  Pour the lime juice over the top, then add cilantro.
  • Blend for 20 seconds.
  • Chill 1-2 hours before serving.   It tastes better cold!

Now you have amazing salsa, let’s serve it on Thirty One’s Close to Home Tray.  Place a small bowl with salsa on it along with some chips and let the fun begin.  Add a dash of style to your home with this beautiful mango wood tray. It’s perfect for serving small snacks and makes a great decoration when not in use! Personalize it with a Simply Etched design to create a special keepsake. Dimensions: Approx. 7.25″H x 20″L x .75″D

What is your favorite salsa recipe?  Or better yet, what is your favorite recipe?  Share it with us.

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
