March Madness


WOOHOO!  It is Monday morning and I am ready to conquer the world.  Okay, so it may be a slight stretch but I am ready to get into the spirit of March Madness.  No, I am not talking about basketball… I am talking about Thirty One’s March Madness.

If you haven’t heard yet, Thirty One has an AMAZING opportunity for hostesses this month.  Are you ready?20150154ae0d8da1453

That’s right with a $500 party you get DOUBLE hostess credits so instead of $90 in FREE products you are gong to $180!  Talk about a shopping spree!16997871_10202926341636908_6815284783116182926_nI know, no time for a party right?  The house is a mess and no time to clean.  No room to have my friends over. None of my friends live close.  Too busy.  No money.  I have heard all of the reasons why you can’t have a party and get FREE stuff BUT for just 31 minutes of your time on Facebook, you could have a party.  Yes, you heard me right.

My new Facebook parties have me LIVE with you and your friends for 31 minutes highlighting all of the products you want to see up close. A personal shopper coming right into your home.  Here is how it works….

  • I will send you a hostess packet for our party within the next 14 days.
  • You share the catalog with friends and family to gather some outside orders.
  • You will send me a guest list of 20 people who you want to attend with their snail mail address.  I will send them a personal paper invite with a treat.  Of those 20, you will pick 10 people who are a must have at your party.  Those individuals will receive a mini  catalog with a bonus option for helping you collect orders.
  • Once I have the list, I will set up you Facebook party.
  • We will do some posts on the party before it starts
  • The day of the LIVE party, I will tell everyone how to earn tickets to win
  • We will go live at the designated time for some fun and games.
  • We will close your party within 48 hours of the LIVE event

Easy peasy, right?  No fuss. No mess.

The best part is all of the NEW items in March at Thirty One

EveryDay Heros

close up nurses & teachers

Another PEAK at what is coming in the Thirty One SUMMER catalog…. well, this won’t be in the catalog since it was JSUT announced on Monday but it will be available during the summer.

Do you know a nurse?  Or were you in the hospital, or sick and had a nurse that touched your heart?  Nurses are special people, they have a caring and compassion that is unmatched for their patients.  There was a time when I thought I wanted to be a nurse.  Okay, so that didn’t last long.  Needles and I don’t get along so that wasn’t going to work.  I remember the nursing staff at both hospitals where Edythe and Elsie were spending their last days and those who tolerated me when Rob was in the hospital.  I think a nurses’ worst nightmare is a Social Worker who has some knowledge – that’s ME!  I would say 95% of the nurses we encountered were caring and compassionate.  They understood how difficult each of the situations were on us as the family.  They are the unsung heroes who spend countless hours taking care of our loved ones when they are too sick to be home for us to take care of them.

Teachers – we have had our share of good ones and bad ones.  I have several that stood out for me growing up.  Then there were the ones that Belinda had in public school as well as Pilgrim.  I believe that when teaching becomes “a job” for some and their passion dies – it is time to give it up and let someone else take over.  I remember Belinda’s kindergarten teacher – Mrs. Eck (yes, that was really her name).  She was past retirement age, had health issues and as the kids said she “wobbles across the floor”.  Remember those weeble wobbles (but they don’t fall down).  She had no patience for these energetic kids who had been in pre-school for 2 years.  Then there was the horrible teacher who tried to label Belinda as a “juvenile delinquent” because she had questions regarding the rules or should I say the interpretation of rules.  This was a difficult year for I was afraid that this label would haunt my daughter through her school years.  Funny, though, that year as one called her a juvenile delinquent another called her smart, polite and was thrilled that she had questions and wanted to learn.  My only concern was “is she disrespectful?” and the answer no matter what was “no”.  I am grateful for the teachers that encouraged the curiosity of my daughter and allowed her to be her own person.  It is with their help that she has developed into an AMAZING advocate for children and underserved populations.

What fond memories do you have of the “every day heroes” in your life?  Share them with us.  Honor them with this bag as a thank you for all that they have done and continue to do each day.

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
