I Am... Mama and Writer

First Mama.  Then Writer.  Though, of late, the latter has consumed a great deal of time as I work to get things in order to potentially be ...

Working Wednesday

I'm so excited!  It's sorta overwhelming, but wonderfully so!  I'll tell you about my other-than-Lilla-Rose-work in just a minute.  I just have to tell you about my Lilla Rose news first!  :)

What is so exciting and overwhelming?!  I'm glad you asked!

A few Lilla Rose Consultants and I have joined together to create an AWESOME Hostess incentive.  So far, since I have been a Lilla Rose Consultant, I have had 4 Hostesses.  Most of my selling has been via the Farmer's Market.  Three out of the four had parties that were more than $200.  The other... well, not so good.  But it could've been with a little effort on my Hostess's part.  How does this tie in?  Well, all of my Hostesses who have $200 parties from now until the very last day of February, will be eligible for the Hostess incentive.  I've already booked 4 spots and I have only 6 more to fill.  I hope you will be one of my Hostesses!

The Grand Prize winner will receive $700 cash AND a $200 shopping spree with her Consultant, me if you win after Hostessing with me!  There is also a similar second prize and may even be a third prize!  How exciting is that!??  And that, my friend, is all ON TOP of what you'll earn by simply having a $200 Party!  It's a win-win situation.  There really are not many deals that truly are win-win, but this is!

This is the Flexi of the Month for January 2014.

The Flexi is the signature piece of hair jewelry and can be used for scarves as well as a few other things (not just hair).  We also have other pieces of hair jewelry, too.  Something for every lady with any hair and since flexis can be lovely ornaments for scarves... we even have something for ladies with no hair!  :)

I've got a couple giveaways live currently.  Available to all new Lilla Rose Customers.  I hope you'll check them out.  One with Outnumbered and the other with Growing.  Enter both!

I was able to go to market day today!  I'll tell you about it next week.

In other working news... I'm still striving to figure out the whole 'monetizing a blog' thing.  I've earned a little already, which is really encouraging!  I hope you will enjoy all that comes of this effort of mine to create a new stream of income for my family via this place I have nurtured for the last 8 years.  I still love writing here... just hoping to bring in some needed income via this passion of mine!

Crocheting is still on the stove of my mind... sitting in the warming spot, currently (meaning: I've not had any orders recently).  If you'd like me to make something for you, let me know!

I continue to love my Tower Garden.  I haven't spent as much time nurting it as I would like, but it continues to thrive and provide us lovely veggies!  It's also just really cool to look at!

Young Living essential oils are amazing!  I'm so grateful to be a distributor of them!  I've been using various brands of essential oils for more than 7 years now and I think essential oils are, basically, miracle workers.  Young Living has surprised me, even with my "long" experience with EOs!  I don't have a wide variety of the oils yet, but I have used Lavender extensively.  It is SO effective!  I was not expecting to be as impressed as I am.  I've used it on my baby's face when she's almost caught the cough/cold the older children have had and each time (three now), she has immediately recovered!  I've also used it to help me stave off the cold and it has helped my children relax and rest better through the night.  I've had LOTS of neck and back pain the last month and the Lavender EO from Young Living has helped woderfully!  The biggest difference?

Well, with other Lavender EOs I could sorta FEEL it upon application.  It wasn't super hot and it didn't really burn, but it was definitely warm and maybe a little tingly (depending on the brand).  I don't feel anything with YL Lavender... nothing like that, anyway.  I only feel relief that seems to just... appear!  It's been really wonderful!

Bit by bit, I'm working to change all my essential oils over to Young Living oils!!

That's all for now.  Til' next Wedneday when I share more of what I'm working on!  ^_^

What a beautiful piece.

I'm glad you like it. I totally agree, of course. :)

Ellen said...

That's just beautiful. Sounds like you are very busy.

Melissa Pezza said...

Just beautiful!!!! I am glad you love it!

Angela said...

It sounds like you have a lot of great things in the works for 2014!

tammilee said...

That is gorgeous!

Debi and Charly @ Adorned From Above said...

I really like that hairclip, reminds me of a peacock. The colors are beautiful1

Nicole B said...

I love using EOs. It's a bit addicting - I love adding new EOs to my collection!

Heather @ It's A Lovely Life! said...

How exciting! Sounds like lots of good things happening in your life!

Jennifer S. said...

So pretty! Looks easy enough to put in without me creating a tangled mess, too!

Joanna Sormunen said...

The flexi looks so beautiful. I love hair jewelry like that. It looks so geourgeous in long hair.


Fantastic accomplishments! I absolutely love Lila Rose! I have four clips so far, but I'm always wanting more. lol.

A Mom's Take said...

It's really interesting to read about the parties! I've always hesitated to be a hostess because I'm not very pushy and don't like to sell. Glad to see your success, though!

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

I wish you lots of good luck with your sales. I have about 4 of those pretty barrettes!

Melissa Au said...

Those hair clips are adorable!

Mistee Dawn said...

How pretty! I love it. I think it would look good in my daughter's hair. SO cute!

QueenB said...

that's a really pretty hair piece.

do you have pics of the tower garden?

Tori said...

Ellen, thank you! I'm glad you like the special Flexi for January! I am very busy lately. It's good. I feel good. :)

Melissa, thank you! Me, too!! ^_^

Angela, I think and surely hope so! I believe 2014 is already and will continue to be THE best year for me and my family!

Tammilee, thank you! :)

Debi and Charly, thank you! I'm glad you think it's pretty! :) Unfortunately, I didn't make it. The pin is patented and at this point in my life I cannot afford all that goes into obtaining a patent. I also haven't had such a great idea for a hair piece! ^_^

Mama to 5, I agree! I'm pretty sure that was the goal, so it's awesome that we think of a peacock!! :)

Nicole, I agree! The result of using EOs is truly wonderful (and addicting in a way that isn't truly addictive!). ^_^

Heather, thank you! I Sure hope so! :)

Jennifer S, the Flexi is really quite easy to figure out and use consistently. I have one in my very long hair almost every day from the time I wake up until I'm ready for bed.

Joanna, it is even prettier in real life... believe it or not! :) And, of course, I totally agree with you! ^_^

Amber, thank you! I'm so glad to hear you love the Flexi!! :)

A Mom's Take, one of the wonderful things about Lilla Rose is that you don't have to be pushy. These hair ornaments are so lovely, functional and durable that they truly sell themselves. It's just a matter of getting ladies acquainted with them! :)

Liz, thank you very much! I'm so glad you've found and enjoy the Flexi!!! ^_^

Melissa Au, thank you! They are even more lovely in real life. It's hard to believe, but totally true!

Mistee, I'm sure they would look lovely in your daughter's hair!! :)

QueenB, thank you! I do have pictures of my Tower. I'll work on getting some of those up soon. Thank you for expressing interest. Definitely helps me with what direction to take! Thank you!!
