Halloween costume memories

I have to give credit to my friend Cindy for this post today.   She inspired me with her darling Halloween home decor. I was delivering a Creative Memories order to her which included our new "Bats in the Belfry " coverset. 

I was so surprised to see that she had  years worth of tally sheets from each year of trick or treaters coming to her door! She has a record of how many trick-or-treaters came, what  the weather was that evening and of course photos of her kids in their costumes.

I  can't wait to see her completed Halloween album!!

She also inspired me by showing me one of her round coffee tables  full of Halloween frames and each frame had a picture of her kids from throughout the years in their Halloween costumes. i'm not a big fan of Halloween but I did allow my children to dress up throughout the years to attend fall festivals  and when we moved to a larger neighborhood I started to join the Halloween fun by passing out candy and letting my kids trick-or-treat.

Cindy told me that many of the frames she had decorated herself so that inspired me to stop by the Goodwill on my way home and pick up a few frames of my own.  I got to work later that afternoon with Washi tape , ribbons and bows and digging up old pictures of my kids in their costumes.

Here are just a few that I was able to find. I know I have about 15 more photos that I'll need to print out but this was a good start for an afternoon project.

Thank you, Cindy, for sharing your ideas with me and giving my family a sweet tradition. I will pack these frames up along with our Fall decorations and next year bring them out again (and add our 2016 picture to the mix). These will look great on our mantle above our fireplace or on a coffee table with a basket of candy.

Do any of you have the Magnetic Display Board Creative Memories used to sell? I still have mine hanging near the kitchen. When I was going through old pictures of Halloween costumes I found a few gems that I just had to use to decorate my board:

That's it for now. I hope you all have a safe and yummy Halloween/fall festival!

Learn from Top Christian Women Leaders in Direct Sales

We’ve all seen it.
A Direct Sales dream story where the work-from-home lady makes millions and travels the world on her own schedule without ever having to miss her kid’s soccer practice. We wonder if it is really just a dream?
BUT we’ve also seen…
The woman working what seems like 24/7, not making much return on her effort, always posting desperately on Facebook and then her friends start avoiding her. We wonder if all of the direct sales opportunities would become a nightmare like that?
For many women, Direct Sales is the answer to real life challenges. Maybe they:
  • Have a job they can’t stand but need to replace the income
  • Need to contribute financially while also caring for the kids or for aging parents
  • Have a child with special needs or an illness that requires more days off than a traditional job would allow
  • Have an entrepreneurial spirit and thrive on the freedom of building something all their own
  • Have debt they are committed to paying off once and for all and want to speed up the process
  • Had an unexpected life change through a spouse’s death or a divorce
  • Needing to retire but don’t have enough money saved to do so without drastically changing their lifestyle
Direct Sales can be a great solution to each of these needs! It offers freedom, a level playing field regardless of race, gender, education level, background, or track record. When Direct Sales is done right, it can change lives, help people achieve their dreams, and make it possible for them to give generously to others.
But you also know that one day you can see the vision and the next day, after a “no-show” or just a rude “no” you’re tempted to throw in the towel. It can be TOUGH building your own Direct Sales business. Don’t make it any tougher than it has to be!
Join me for a training where we will learn from the TOP Christian women leaders in Direct Sales. Why make our own mistakes doing it the hard way when we can learn from THEIR mistakes & successes and build our business much faster?
Monday, October 17th, 2-4 PM EST
If you are in Direct Sales (or hope to be someday), come learn from the BEST and save yourself LOTS of unnecessary hassle & hustle. These women have built success on their own schedule…and YOU can too!
I really hope you’ll join me! Oh, and if you know someone in Direct Sales who could benefit from this FREE training, please share this post with her. The more the merrier!

How to move from stress to success!

Finish 2016 better than it began! There's still time. You just need a plan. 
How to Move from Stress to Success
iBloom Life & Business Online Event
Friday, September 23rd,  7 AM-1 PM PST
If you are like me and want to make the most of your time, make a difference, and leave a legacy, then this may be the best investment you will make in yourself and your business all year! 
#1) If you want to reach the goals you have set for your business, yourself, and your family, this event is going to be powerful in setting you up for SUCCESS and helping you live a life you LOVE!  
#2) If you want to do amazing things, surround yourself with amazing people. You will be encouraged, inspired, prayed for, and equipped during this one-day event.
#3) Even if you can’t join in LIVE, you will receive the recording and handouts afterwards to experience when it's more convenient (but try to be there LIVE if you can because they have done special things for LIVE attendees before that you don’t want to miss if at all possible).
#4) iBloom ONLY does amazing content. I also use their Planner and have attended other trainings. I have never been disappointed by what I get from this team.
#5) We all need to be investing in ourselves and our businesses if we want to grow. I don’t know of another way to invest 6 hours and $27 and see such a return on the investment. You won’t regret being there.
