A New Adventure

After doing much research and stalking I had decided to jump in and try something new.  Usually I take a few months to really think about if it is something I want to do, if it is worth the money, do I have the time to invest in something new and just make sure it will be fun and worth the time and energy.  By saying I did research and stalking, which I did, doesn't mean I took days and days or even weeks to check it out.  My time was equal to approximately 48 hours of searches on google, searches on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram you name it, I searched it.  Then at a split of a moment decided, what the heck, let's do it.  So I did.

Welcome to my new website where I am an Executive Design Consultant (recently promoted!) with Lattice & Ivy.

Lattice & Ivy is a company where you can order online, attend a vendor show and place an order, attend or host a Design Bar and place an order there.  It is super easy and so much fun.  

At Lattice & Ivy you get to choose your product, choose the pattern and color, choose the frame or band and the color, choose your font, monogram style or saying.  All 100% up to you and what you choose.  So many items to choose from that there are literally 1000's of options once you choose what item you would like to design.  I started off by ordering a tumbler and once it came, I was hooked.  The quality is unbelievable, the colors are bright and vibrant and the customer service was top notch.  All of this makes for a great company to work for.  

I started off posting a few things on Facebook and Pinterest and from there my friends started asking questions and ordering product.  I thought to myself, how easy is this!  So from there I just continued to do what I was doing adding just a little bit more each time I posted and before I knew, I had 4 people signed up under me who are now on my team.  I couldn't be more thrilled to have such a great team and from there my team has continued to grow.  I love to be able to not only share my love for the Lattice & Ivy but to help others enjoy what they are doing for Lattice & Ivy as well.  How great is it to sell what you love and have fun while doing it!

Want to post a few things just so you can see how stinkin cute the product is!

Mouse pad with my name :)

Love how easy it is to design some simple note cards

If you live in the Seattle area like I do, you know this is a necessity at any Seahawks game

"C" is for Curtis, a friend of mine order these folded notecards to have on hand for any occasion

My daughter Taylor is a student at Washington State University otherwise known as WSU.  They are the Cougars or the Cougs as many say and as you can see their colors are crimson and grey.  Another game day necessity here in the state of Washington.

My friend Heather ordered this melamine platter to match her kitchen.  The colors work so well together and it matches her kitchen perfectly.

Shyah designed this iPhone case just for her with some bright colors in mind.  Love the pattern along with the polka dot band-so cute!

Just a few things to tempt you at this time.  Please hop on over to my website and check out what we have to offer.  Next week the fall catalog will be out with Holiday and Fall items, 44 pages of wonderful gifts for family, friends or yourself!  Also, the website will be going live next week with a brand new program that will allow you to pick an item and as you pick your pattern, color and such it will design it for you so you can see the final product before placing your order.  This will be huge for us!  At this time, we only have the catalog and swatches we can show you of the patterns and colors with no way of being able to show you what it will look like.  Needless to say, we are all very excited for the new website to go live.  Til then, if you have any questions, feel free to contact me and I can help you out.  Want a fall catalog??  Message me and I can get one to you as soon as they arrive.

Have a great day everyone!

New Adventure!

This week I have taken on a new adventure.  Took a lot of thought but it was definitely the right decision.  I have signed on to be an Independent Design
 consultant with the company Lattice & Ivy a wonderful company that specializes in personalized monogrammed products.  Such a great variety of gifts and accessories not only for yourself but for friends, family, bridal parties, gift exchanges, birthday presents; the possibilities are endless!

Here are a few pictures of some of the super cool product we carry.
Tumblers-who doesn't  need one of these?

iPhone and Samsung Galaxy phone covers personalized to your liking.

Beach towels which are a necessity at the pool and beach.  

Perfect combo!

Another perfect combo, beach towels and tumblers!

Cutest flip flops ever!  Perfect for any occasion.

I will have more pictures to follow once I have recovered from updating all the social sites and such!  In the meantime, if you are interested, take a sneak peak at my website, look around, play with all the patterns, frames and monograms and see what you like best.  Best thing is that you do not necessarily have to have a Design Bar party' you can simply order online from my website with no pressure from me(I'm not like that anyway) so go ahead and take a look.  Any questions, let me know!

Getting Back Into The Swing Of Things

After being absent for a couple of months due to computer melt downs, viruses and hackers I think I am ready to get back into the swing of things.  It is amazing how something as little as a computer virus which you don't see can be such a huge pain in the butt.  The computer was completed hacked and pretty much put to rest.  All pictures were saved to an external hard drive but who knows what all was taken or lost.  Needless to say, I have been a little apprehensive about what sites I go to, comment on or post on lately. I am slowly getting back to trusting sites and people in the internet world.  When it comes down to it, you just don't know.  It has taken a few months to gain the trust back but I think I am there. So with that being said I am back amongst those who surf the web, post on blogs and going to attempt to blog again.  I truly have missed it and will do my best to keep up with it.  That is; as long as no one hacks my laptop again!

Pulled up a few pictures of some projects.  Probably not the best shots but it is something to get started with.

Love this little book I made.  Celebrate Life.  So simple but yet means so much.

I love to hang layouts, canvases and anything made on the walls in my scrapbook room.  I use clear push pins in the very far corners being sure not to damage the pages to hang on the walls.  The great part is I can change them out at any time I want a different look in the room.

Always remember, Be You!

Taylor and Alex at the top.  One of my favorite pictures capturing how they enjoy each others company.

Old picture of carter showing just a little of the layout but one of my favorite shots of him when he was young.

And of course my next project to get started.  This snap book will be used for all of the everyday life events for the month of February.  It is sure to be filled quickly and I will be onto the next one for the month of March.

Signing off for today but will be back, I promise.
