Hi! This is just a reminder that PMS Night on 09/19/2009 was cancelled and rescheduled for 09/03/2009 as a Super Saturday before my Dad passed away.

I decided after my husband's back surgery interrupting the August PMS Night and then my Dad passing away and having to cancel the 09/03/2009 Super Saturday I had planned, I would not tempt fate and try to reschedule it again.


Don't miss out on earning DOUBLE HOSTESS DOLLARS! I do still have Happy Hostess spots available for 09/25/09 and 09/28/2009. Full details can be found HERE. Please LMK if you are interested in being a Happy Hostess ASAP! I would love to jump start my business with a *boom* again!

Have a great weekend!

Many of you know I have been having a trying time since the beginning of August. My computer crashed (and nearly burned), my husband had emergency back surgery (which he is still recovering from), my dad was sent to Warm Springs for rehabilitation for what we thought was a stroke (but ultimately ended up being presumed spread of leukemia to his central nervous system), and then we found out dad's leukemia was no longer in remission only days before he passed away last Thursday. As a result, I have had to cancel a number of events and I apologize for that.

I would like to jump start my business again by offering you the opportunity on 09/25/2009 and 09/28/2009 (7:00 pm to 9:00 pm) to be a "Happy Hostess" and earn DOUBLE HOSTESS DOLLAR BENEFITS if your party reaches $300.00!

That means if you choose to be a hostess and your party reaches the $300.00 mark, you will receive $70.00 in hostess dollar benefits instead of $35.00! I will continue to double for any hostess award level you achieve above the $300.00 mark. This offer applies to hostess dollars only, not to hostess sets earned.

Here is an example of what a $400.00 party would earn you:
  • 2 level 1 hostess stamp sets OR 1 level 1 hostess stamp set and 1 level 2 hostess stamp set.
  • $45.00 in hostess dollar benefits PLUS an additional $45.00 from me = $90.00 in hostess dollar benefits, which can be used to purchase ANYTHING from the catalog or Holiday Mini!!
  • Choose any one item from the 2009 Holiday Mini Catalog for only $10 (offer excludes hostess sets and My Digital Studio).
There are 2 hostess slots available on 09/25/2009 and 2 hostess slots available on 09/28/2009. SIGN UP NOW!!! Simply EMAIL ME to choose your hostess slot.

If you don't want to be a hostess, but would like to attend, I will have NEW IDEA BOOK AND CATALOGS AND HOLIDAY MINI CATALOGS!!! Please drop me an email and let me know you will be attending so I can be sure to have enough paper cut for the projects!

I hope this special offer will allow you to have a great time earning free product as a hostess and will also allow me some much needed "girl time" to help me refocus after this difficult phase in my life. Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers, support, and friendship at a time when I have needed it the most.

Love and Hugs!

My Daddy lost an honorable 3-year battle with leukemia early this morning. Now it is time for him to rest with the Lord. Please consider making a donation to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN (Dad's hometown). As horrible as this disease was to my father, I simply cannot imagine having a child with such a devastating condition.

For those who may want to know... Visitation Friday 6-9 pm @ McKoons Funeral Home - Newnan. Funeral Saturday 2 pm @ Senoia UMC. Gathering at my brothers house in Newnan to follow.

So sorry to cancel yet another event. It has been a terrible 3 to 4 weeks for my family. My poor husband could not even be with me during this difficult time because of limitations from his emergency back surgery just 2 weeks ago. I will update you with new dates asap.

Please pray for my mother, grandmother, and children, as this is an exceptionally difficult time for all of us.
