Sometimes I let myself get worked up and overwhelmed about so many different things going on in my life and in the lives of those around me. I don't mean to, but it happens.

And then....I open up my devotional for the morning and it says, "Ask My Spirit within you to order your day and control your thoughts, for the mind controlled by the Spirit is Life and Peace."

I need to hear that today. I need to stop worrying and to just trust HIM instead.  He is my ever-present help in trouble.

Praying for God's PEACE today.

Sharing the gift

This afternoon I met with a wonderful and amazing hostess, Tamara who has decided to join our Sparkling Stars team in another week. This is one of my favorite parts of my job- sharing Thirty-One with others.

She has decided to join for a couple of different reasons.

#1 - She loves the product (that is kind of important).

#2 - She basically did my job for me when doing the invites for her party (so she might as well make a little money...right!?!)

#3 - She can join right now and sell $1000 (make $250 in cash) in her first 30 days and get her $99 back AND an extra Hostess EXCLUSIVE item for free! (valued at $70!) AND on top of all that...she will earn LEVEL 1 of our Start Swell program...which means...another $103 worth of items for...FREE!

#4 - We really have the EASIEST program ever to remain an active consultant. I mean is a no brainer. Sell $200 every rolling three months. That's it! NO MONTHLY QUOTAS, NO specific # of parties. And with our amazing customer specials...all she needs to do is collect 5-6 orders every rolling three months to get that $200. How much easier could it be!?!

#5 - She gets 25% discount/commission from the date she signs up. WHAT?!? Yes!

Ok...I said a couple...and there are 5 at least! Really...let's take a look at the math for all of this....

For some...this business is about working it full time, for others it is about making a little extra cash...or maybe even just getting a discount on the great products.

The opportunity is really up to each individual consultant and what they want to make of it.

Seriously....could it get any better?!? The thing I love sharing the most is our amazing team and how supportive we are of one another! The sisterhood is priceless!

Can't wait to welcome you Tamara to our Sparkling Stars team! I am so excited for you!

Wonder who will be next?!?

Office Makeover

Several months ago...(back in October)...Hubby and I were talking about our front room and he asked if he could turn it into a "project".  Little did I know the "project" would turn into a BIGGER "project" that would include more than just the front room.

"PROJECT" #1 is complete. I took possession of my new office yesterday and it is WONDERFUL. Through some blood, sweat and is complete. So without keeping it from you any longer...I introduce to you my new working space.

First up...the BEFORE pics.

This room was used just a sitting room.

We didn't use it very often, unless we had guests.  I enjoyed just snuggling up on the couch and spending my morning devotional there. made more sense to move my office to the main floor.

So...that is just what we did.

Here is my new office...looking in from the door and entryway. Do you see the BOLD BLOOM print?!? It is new this spring with Thirty-One...and it is my favorite!

The chair we had in our family room for a while...I spiced it up with a new pillow. 

This shelving unit was in my office upstairs and I didn't think I was going to use it, but then realized the Junior Cubes fit it is a keeper! Now just have to get some in BOLD BLOOM.

My pink box corner.... Best $99 I ever spent!

This cabinet belonged to my grandparents....and has special meaning to me. We decided to not do anything besides change the knobs on the doors.  It is just like it was when my Granny K passed away. Even her notes are inside on the door. :)

So there you have office makeover.  Now back to work!

Do you blog or vlog?

Hi all! I am back! Ok ok...I know I said that before....but I am for real this time! I really miss the blog world and what better way to write down my thoughts and hopefully get some feedback.

So my question you blog or vlog? I am going to be doing both and I am super excited about it!  I am also going to be sharing this blog with the facebook world so they can get a better idea of who I am and what I am up to.

SUPER excited! Missed my blog friends! You girls know who you are and I can't wait to reconnect!

So what's on the agenda today?!?! Well, it is I am headed off to party with a FABULOUS new hostess and her friends. I really can't wait to meet this group of ladies as I have never partied with them before. The bonus is they live about 10 minutes from my VERY excited!

This afternoon we will be putting the finishing touches on our entryway. Did you know my hubby built a new office for me right off our entryway?! Yep! New wall, flooring, paint and all! I promised to share pictures soon.

We have been taking it slow....finally putting the new sealer on the floors today and hope to begin furniture placement late tomorrow/Monday.

PHEW! I had better get my act together as I have invited my Sparkling Stars team over to my house for dinner Monday night! Sorry girls! It won't be completely set up, but will give you a taste of what is to come.

And I say that....I am trying not to get to attached.  Our plans are to put our house on the market this spring/summer.  Where are we headed? Not sure....but I am actually excited for a new adventure.

So hold tight! You all will be some of the first to find out!

Hoping you all have a fabulous day!

PS- Wanted to share part of my devotion from this morning....

LET MY LOVE ENFOLD YOU in the radiance of My Glory. Sit still in the Light of My Presence, and receive My Peace.  These quiet moments with ME transcend time, accomplishing far more than you can imagine. Bring Me the sacrifice of your time, and watch to see how abundantly I bless you and your loved ones.

How awesome is that?! Praise God for his abundant blessings!

Chat with you soon! XO
