Gearing up for Christmas!


I am so excited about the Christmas season! I love love LOVE Christmas! :-) I wrote all about how I feel about this special season in my very first book: "31 Family Devotions for Christmas"

Here is an excerpt from the inside cover:


"Dear Friends,

As many of you do, I love Christmas! From the Thanksgiving Day Parade all the way to New Year’s Day, I love everything about the
Christmas season! To me, Christmas isn’t just one day to prepare for, and it certainly isn’t just for children, as we so often hear. Christmas is an entire season of hope and love and joy! As Christians, we should be living out the spirit of Christmas every day of the year. However, we often get caught up in the hustle and bustle, and before you know it, Christmas is over and we end up stressed and tired with a pile of bills hanging over our heads. Many of us are guilty of trying too hard to plan the perfect Christmas. This year, why not strive to spend more time together as a family, reflecting on the true meaning of Christmas rather than worrying over organizing a flawless holiday? "
You can purchase this book of devotions, recipes & stress-free tips on my website: www.reallyworkingfromhome.com



So, starting on November 15th, this blog will be dedicated to helping you reflect on the true meaning of  Christmas this season!
We'll aslo have recipes, stress-free tips, holiday ideas and our Online Christmas Boutique featuring $5, $10, $20 gifts and stocking stuffers (shipping is INCLUDED in all prices!!)

My mission  is to help Moms save and make money from home and I'll be working overtime to help you look forward to the holiday season with joy in your heart and a little extra cash in your pocket!

Be sure to join us everyday starting November 15th!!

Also, my friend Shiloah over at "The Homemaking Cottage" is having a Christmas Extravaganza beginning November 1st! I've written an article for her and sent many of my original recipes for her Christmas features! It's going to be wonderful! Don't forget to check it out beginning Sunday November, 1st!!

Read on for more info...






The Giveaway


Enter Our LoobaLee Subscription Giveaway!

Win 6 Free Months of Selling on LoobaLee!
LoobaLee is a new site for buying and selling children's designer clothing and accessories. It's exclusively designed to be custom to the kids clothing market, as well as be fun and easy for busy Moms too! LoobaLee promotes an "outfit your kids for virtually free" philosophy, and blogs about how to "Buy Right, Care Right, and Sell Right" to help dress your kids in quality designer clothing for less!
Hurry! This opportunity closes on Oct 31, 2009
Note: Currently open to U.S. Residents only


To Enter:

Being a Member on LoobaLee unlocks additional shopping features such as a Watch List, saving favorite searches, and the ability to exclusively hold items in your cart for up to 3 hours!

Step 2: Comment on this blog post with your LoobaLee User Name



**************************************************

About LoobaLee


We are a new consume-to-consumer (i.e. Mom-to-Mom) exchange site customized for the resale of designer children's clothing & accessories. We've also recently picked up the interest of Designers and Boutiques for the sale of samples of overstocks.


We aim to be the premier channel for the resale of children's designer clothing. We've designed our site to be custom to this market, with the underlying principles of being easy, minimally time-consuming for busy Moms, and fun too!


We also promote an "outfit your kids for virtually free" philosphy, and blog about how to "Buy right, Care right, and Sell right' to reduce your overall spend on kids clothing, while dressing them in quality designer clothing at the same time.


We offer a subscription based selling service. For just $3.99 per mo., or as low as $2.50 a month (for an annual subscription), Sellers can put up unlimited listings w/o any additional fees -- no 'premium' listings fees, no end of sale commissions, etc.
Also, here's a link to some recent press we received that may give you some ideas: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/2005770/loobaleecom_launch_offers_parents_a.html?cat=46

Benefits of Buying & Selling on LoobaLee
Our hope for LoobaLee is to be the premier site for buying and selling designer children's clothing and be a premier resource to help Moms make their shopping decisions.
Unlimited listings for low, flat fee - There are no end of sale commissions or "premium" listing fees. Sellers can feel free to list as much as they want for a small subscription fee. Full service ranges between only $2.50 and $3.99 per month.

Simple Listings & Listing Management - Listings are simple and menu-driven. There's no need for fancy templates or sales language. We even offer a standard Return Policy that Sellers can elect to use or, if they wish, define a custom policy. Since we are not an auction site, Sellers indicate the price they want for their item. Listings are active for 30 days, and items can either be set to Clearance or easily relisted if they don't sell.

Authentic Search Results - Since our listings are menu-driven, so is our Search. It is virtually impossible to pull up non-authentic search results. Buyers can spend their precious time viewing items available on the site without sifting through spam listings based on key words.
Quality, Designer Listings Only - Additionally, our custom menus facilitate the listing of designer brands only. We currently have over 750 designer brands represented on the site, with more being added each week. We also offer detailed Condition definitions that assist Buyers and Sellers and that avoid low fair/poor condition listings.


Unique Shopping Experience - Buyers can shop as visitors (similar to retail) or join as members to obtain additional shopping features (such as the ability to exclusively hold items in your cart for up to 3 hours, saving and shopping Favorite Searches, and maintaining a watch list).

Reduced Feedback Anxiety - We have a Community Code of ethics and a new approach to leaving and calculating feedback that facilitates objective and fair feedback.

Revamped Shipping Buyers always know their shipping before they checkout. Our custom shipping calculator facilitates Delivery Confirmation and close-to-actual shipping charges on all orders, even orders for multiple items

Monday's Mommy Minute ~Sort of!~




~AND THE WINNER'S ARE:  Nicole & Liberty!!!~
In lieu of today's regularly scheduled Mommy Minute...I want to spot-light the artistry of a friend of mine.  My good friends Joe & Deb Jenkins (Deb's a mom...so that counts, right?)  have recently moved to Moab, Utah and have started their own business. Read on....


In Joe's own words:


What Is Symbols on Stone?
"Native Americans used a pecking system to leave messages for future generations on the rocks in the areas they lived, hunted and traveled. These writings are called petroglyphs. Even today, the meanings of many of these symbols are not understood.

Having recently moved to Moab, Utah, I have become intrigued by these writings for many reasons. My desire is to share these symbols with others who are mesmerized by the Native American culture and the southwest area in general.


These “symbols” are each hand made beginning with the sawing of the rock into small pieces. These pieces are then hand etched, sanded, drilled and polished. Each pendant is then placed on a leather strap and can be worn as a necklace.

Each pendant is unique in many ways. The color of each pipestone rock is distinct. No two pieces of rock have been cut exactly the same: length, width, and edges are all different. As a result of the many differences in the rock and the creation process each pendant is a one-of-a-kind work of art."

These retail for $20 a piece. Discounts are given for multiple orders.


                                                                                           (this is my personal favorite!)




For more information, contact Joe at: mrjman1957@gmail.com






                                   Here is a picture of Joe & Deb along w/ their son & my son! :-)






The Giveaway:
Joe sent me 6 of these a while back. 2 as a gift (which are absolutely gorgeous by the way. My husband & I love them!) and 4 to distribute to possible vendors.   I still have 2 left & I will giveaway 1 of these necklaces to 2 lucky winners!

Today's Featured
Christian Mom

is Arlene Gianelli!



 
 
 
More About Arlene:
 
My name is Arlene Gianelli and I am an Educational Consultant. I've been with the company for almost 14 years, ever since my oldest daughter was 9 months old.

Short Description of Company: For 30 years, Discovery Toys has been providing the highest quality books, toys and games available, each backed with an unconditional satisfaction guarantee. The quality and safety of our toys is as important to us as the layers of learning crafted into each toy we develop.

A little about you: My husband and I have been married for 27 years, and we have two daughters who are now 14 and 10. I am the typical SAHM, who spends more time behind the wheel of the car than actually at home. Wouldn't trade it for the world, though.

How long have you been a Christian and a little about your faith: As a cradle Catholic, I have been a Christian all my life. During some very difficult periods in my life, it was my faith that sustained me. My faith is part of who I am, and is the basis of how I conduct my life.

Why would someone want to join your particular team? When you join my team, you can count on having an upline who is ethical and cares about your success. I will help you every step of the way. I won't leave you floundering in your business.
 
What is the start-up costs (in entirety. taxes and everything) The Success Start kit includes 18 of our best selling toys, and business supplies to get your business started. It also includes a Free personal website for 3 full months. Cost for the success kit is $125 and $33 UPS fee. Sales tax is based on your delivery zip code. The kit can be ordered with a $35 credit card deposit, with 2 subsequent monthly payments on your credit card. With our Success Start program, you can also earn a refund of your kit price, as well as other bonuses.

What is the required purchase to stay active? Placing orders totaling $150 in a month keeps a consultant active for 3 months. Then a consultant would go to inactive status, where she can remain for 9 months until she is dropped. Placing orders totaling $150 in a month would start the active status again at any point.
