Diaper Cake

I made a Diaper Cake for a friend who is having a baby! It is my first one. It is so neat! It makes a great Shower gift! I will be making more for more friends!


I am ready for Spring, but the snow is beautiful! We have about 13"...the second big snow for us this Winter. We are not used to no more than 2 or 3" at a time. Winter will be over before we know it so I'll enjoy it while it is here. We woke up to the sun shining so pretty and it is beautiful against the snow. I guess this will be a lazy day. Should be doing things around the house, but I will probably just lay around and do nothing. Everyone needs one of those days once in a while. I hope everyone has a great day and stay warm!

Hey, have you checked out Listia? It's a new members-only site where everything is free and you can get some cool stuff without spending any money. You give away the things you no longer need, and get things you want for free.

It's all done using free credits instead of real money. Most people start with 100 credits, but this invitation gives you 150 to get more when you start. I'm already in and you can get started by clicking this special link: really love the site and hope you do too! Let me know when you join.

Happy Valentines Day!


I have been resting a few days after having a heart catheterization. No blockages were found, but on the 27th I go for an MRI to see if they can find out why my heart is so weak. I have had many friends and my family praying for me...thank you all! I love you all so very much!

Social Networking Sites

1.There are lots of social networking sites on the web. One thing that I have found is that some of them have no one looking for a business, only advertising them. For most people, the best thing to do is join sites that have people looking for businesses. Search the site, become friends with a relationship. Google *Social Networking Site, *Friend Social Networking Sites, *(your hobbies) Social Networking Site, *Work At Home Social Networking Site
There is Facebook, myspace, Ryze, Squidoo, bukisa, yahoo groups, ning groups, cafemom, twitter and many, many more.

2. You can have as many Social Networking Sites as you would like, just don't overwhelm yourself. Make sure that you can keep up with each of them. You want to be consistent with each site. Try to get on each site at least 5 days a week and add or update info and see if you have any new friend requests, new messages, etc.

3. Your profile is very important. You want to build a profile that catches people's eyes. Tell about yourself, your interests, your hobbies, etc. If you work from home, tell your success stories, why you work from home, your personal stories. Tell about your business. Add pictures...make it stand out.

4. You will want to search the site and find friends that you have something in common with. You will want to chat with these people and make friends with them. One thing will lead to another and you will soon be discussing your business with them and getting them interested in what you do. You can't just post ads, you have to build relationships with people. Find people that are having Birthdays or an Anniversary and wish them a happy birthday or congrats. This will most likely get them to check out your profile and see what you do.

5. Use Social Networking to make new friends and reconnect with old friends. You can build relationships and promote your business all at the same time. Remember that you are NOT the only one doing this, so you have to be consistent and be willing to answer questions and be willing to make friends and socialize with people. The key is to not flood people with posts about your business, but to welcome these people as new friends and then gradually your business will be a topic.

Make social networking fun and it will go where you want it to.

Some social networking sites that I am on and my profile pages are:

Totally FREE!! Earn extra money!!

Big Crumbs and sendearnings are great ways to earn extra money and they are TOTALLY free to join. Just click on the pictures to each in the right hand column and you can earn extra money at NO cost to you. All you have to do is join! You will not earn tons of money, just some extra spending money to use however you want. A little extra money is better than no extra money!

Work in your Jammies!

Have you ever wanted to work from home and didn't think you could make it? Are you struggling with the decision of whether or not to start a home based business? In my opinion one of the best home based businesses to start is becoming a Consultant for Just Jewelry.
Do you like being on the computer? Do you like networking and socializing? If you do , you could have an online jewelry business. You can start with your warm market, introduce the products to others and let them spread the word. This is retailing and you can be successful with it if you want to be. You can talk to people about having a fundraiser. This would be up to you. There are so many ways and so many places to go to, online and off, to advertise your business.
Wouldn't you like to stay in your jammies all day? At least for as long as you want to...if you want you could even go out and put up advertisements in your jammies...that would be up to you to. You don't even have to go out at all. If you just want to work your business online, that is fine. Either way, you won't have to get up in the morning and go out. You can log onto the computer and work away.


Network Marketing is awesome. From Myspace to Facebook to Twitter to your own blog to your own social networking site...there are so many ways and places to network. You can meet so many people from everywhere. It's basically an all day thing to sit and network. You can introduce your business to so many people. I feel that the main thing that you have to do is to really become friends with these people. You can't just introduce your business and go on. You have to build a relationship with others. Build your profile and introduce yourself to others. Communication is the key. When you are networking you have to be sociable...introduce and tell about yourself, which is the personal side of it, tell about your interests and hobbies, which is the social side of it and finally tell about what you do, which is the business side of it. Bonding with people and letting them get to know you will lead them to trust you and want to be on your team. And once you build this relationship and people do trust you, you have to keep it by being a strong leader and standing by and being there for your team. I love networking and I have "met" so many people and shared stories with them...some of them I feel like I've known all my life. I am a people person and a talker. I love making new friends and I look forward to making more everyday.

Beat the Recession!

If you want to start your own home based business and you love jewelry yourself, this is perfect for you. There are three ways to earn...retailing, fundraising and recruiting. You can make money doing all three or just one. The choice is yours. With the economy like it is it is good to have something to fall back on. With so many people losing their jobs and not being able to find another one, owning your own business is how most people are surviving. The benefits of owning your own business are never ending...from tax write offs to being able to be at home. Jewelry is a perfect gift for someone and a great fundraising product. It is easy to talk to people about jewelry because most everyone wears it. Men are even easy to sell jewelry to because they love giving it to their wives for their birthday or just to say "I'm sorry" and most men that I know wear rings and watches. Don't let the economy get you down. You decide for yourself if you want to beat this recession doing something that you will love.

Do you know what you want to do?

What is the real reason that you want to work from home? Do you want a hobby? Do you want to earn extra money? Do you want to replace your full time job? You have to know the answer and work your business accordingly. You need to set goals...write them down and work towards them until you meet them. You can get started in your own Jewelry business. A few things to consider are:

You can have Immediate Income
You can Set your own hours
You will have No Boss
You can Sell and Promote Locally and Online
You can earn by Retailing
You can Promote and Have Fundraisers
You can Build a Team
There is Training, Support, Ways to help you Build Your Business
You can get in on Training and Conference Calls
You can have your own website to sell and promote your business

The benefits are endless and you will never stop learning. So, ask yourself if you are ready to commit to being your own boss and start analyzing the true reasons that you want to own your own business. Do you want financial freedom? Do you want to prosper in a failing economy? The choice is just have to take that first step.

Helping other while you help yourself...

I am a true believer in helping others. I have always put others first and that's a good thing, for you have to help others to help yourself and I am ready to help you to start helping yourself. I guess I am what they call a philanthropist. I love to help the humankind in general. I want to help you succeed in something that will bring you satisfaction and freedom. If you want to be successful in something that you will love doing, contact me and we can talk. I am here to guide you and to help you get started building your is never to late. If you want to know the basics of owning your own business, the benefits and rewards, let me know and I will give you the details and you can decide for yourself if it will be right for you. Contact me anytime.

Leader or Follower?

Leader or Follower?
Are you a leader or a follower? A leader gets up and goes, a follower waits for someone else to get up and go. A leader says "let's go", a follower says "are you going?". A leader takes charge, a follower gets charged. A leader wins, a follower comes in second. A leader looks ahead and sees his own space, a follower looks ahead and sees someone else's space. A leader looks back and sees that he is on top, a follower looks back and sees that he is at the bottom. A leader gets things accomplished, a follower accomplishes things for others. A leader steps up to bat first, a follower may not even get to bat. A leader succeeds, a follower endures others successes. A leader reaches his own destination, a follower only goes as far as another's destination. A leader knows no boundaries, a follower is halted by boundaries.
Ask yourself if you are a leader or a follower and if you are happy with your answer or not.
