Craft Giveaway Link

Vanilla Joy has been having quite a few giveaways recently. The last giveaway was posted today – Olfa Rotary Cutting Supplies.

I would love to win these items. I got a new sewing machine for Christmas and would love to have a rotary cutter and board to make things go faster when I sew. Obviously, this is not something I need, so I have been looking for a great deal on these items, but haven’t found that incredible deal yet… So it would be just super to win them!

Food on Friday

TGIF! It has been a busy week and I am looking forward to a more relaxing weekend. And I am hoping to do some baking. Although I haven’t decided what I want to make yet. I also would like to make some healthy snacks – possibly granola. I like granola, but haven’t found the perfect recipe yet. There are a few that I found in my cookbooks that I want to try, but just haven’t taken the time to yet. When I find it, I will share it with you.

Don’t forget, Rita’s is opening today and is giving away free ice.

Here are a few food links I found this past week.

My New Endeavor

Lately, I have been very busy. Every week I hope will be less busy, but it just hasn’t been working out that way for me. At the end of last year, I decided to become a consultant for BeautiControl, a Texas-based company that sells skin care, spa products, and makeup. My hopes are to make money to put towards our adoption expenses. Ideally, I’d love to be able to make enough to cover all of our adoption expenses. I am very excited about making this decision and want to share these products with everyone. Check out my BeautiPage to learn more about this company and the products. You can also order products from my page.

Products Beyond Compare
– high quality products at competitive prices
– serious skin care solutions, targeted for the age of your skin
– visible results, using tomorrow’s technology today
– exclusive formulas, created and controlled by the BeautiControl Research Institute

If you are local and would like to host a spa party, please contact me. You can earn free products and discounted items while having a relaxing time with friends.

If you are looking for a way to earn some extra money, you can find more information out at the website, and can contact me with any questions. The start up cost is low and you have the opportunity to earn 25%-50% profit, and sometimes more!

Since I am still new to this, I am always open to advice from other consultants. Feel free to leave a comment or email me with your tips. Thanks!
