A New Adventure

Sometimes I'm a jumper.  Sometimes I get involved in things that I have no clue what I'm getting into.  This is NOT one of those times.  I just became a Young Living Essential Oils Independent Distributor (member #2065124 thank you very much).... with no hesitation, not an ounce of doubt or uncertainty!!!!  And the reason is that I believe THIS is a better way.

So I attended a Young Living Oils class, became a member that night and the following night, before my kit was even officially mailed to me, I signed on to sell these products and share the incredible opportunity for health with others.  It made sense to me... it helped that a friend gave me her weight loss trio (lemon, grapefruit and peppermint) to try so I was familiar with the product.  I was never on the fence and I haven't once second guessed my decision.

I was never on the fence because years ago I had a homeopathic doctor tell me that ALL MEDICINE started out as natural medicine and that our pharmaceutical industry is just humans trying to replicate what nature has done forever... unfortunately, not without side effects because NOTHING can do what nature can.  Hearing about the benefits of pure and natural essential oils, it made perfect sense to me that these oils being a concentrated extraction from plants, would absolutely heal.  And the weight loss trio does it for me.  I just feel an all-around well being while seeing real weight loss that I just haven't seen in a long time.

Now do I feel that doctors and the pharmaceutical industry serves a purpose?  ABSOLUTELY!!!  If I was ever in a horrific accident, in a hospital hooked up to drugs through an IV is the FIRST place I would want to be.  And I even see a regular doctor.  But I found one that WON'T write me a prescription every time I'm in her office.  She really listens to me and also believes in the importance of a strong immune system.  She honors by belief that natural remedies support my body healing itself while pharmaceuticals and pills from drug companies tear it down.  She has also agreed to work hand in hand with my homeopathic doctor so that I have TWO people working toward my well being.... well, THREE if I include myself.  And honestly, I think that is every bit as important!

I think that WE need to be responsible for our own health.  Instead of abusing ourselves and then expecting someone else to fix us, we need to step up and help ourselves to be healthy.  I truly believe PURE essential oils are a good step in the right direction.  And it is something I want to share with the world!!!

If you're interested in getting started with Young Living Essential Oils, they have a Premium Starter Kit that has a really good mix (10 to be exact) of "everyday" oils, a bunch of samples of oil blends a roller ball and a diffuser to get you started with your oils as soon as you open the box!  Click HERE to order.  DRIPPY DRIPPY!!!


Past 7 Days....

I Love Being Hit By Mack Trucks

Ok, so my friend Cindy came over to play with all her new Stampin Up goodies.  When I first looked at the Yippee Skippee stamp set I fell in love with all but ONE stamp, "Never Underestimate The Power of Two"????  What the heck does that mean???  Is that supposed to be a "couples" stamp, like for Valentines or weddings or something?  I don't know, but when you apply that sentiment to alcohol, well..... Isn't it JUST so obvious how perfect this sentiment is?!?  I mean, it was like being hit with a Mack truck!  LOL!  Cindy and I were SOOOO proud of ourselves!!!  This card is AWESOME!!!!  We added the "or three" to the end realizing that it is just funnier that way!!!  We used a TON of Stampin Up goodies for this card: Inks and Papers - Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Whisper White Stamp Sets - Yippee Skippy, Happy Hour Tools - Big Shot, Banners Framelits, Paper Piercer, Paper Piercing Mat Additional - Linen Thread,

You'd Think I'd Have Had Enough!

Wow.... so HOW many times can I use this image??? HAHAHAHAHAHA! I can't help it! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Victoria Case Magical Sophie stamp !!! But, I promise, this is the last time you'll see her this season. I've got WAY too many new and oh-so-cute stamps and goodies coming and I'll have to use ALL of them this Halloween.... you know how it is. So I did this card for The Town Scrapper (which, BTW, is where I got this cute little gem). Today starts the sketch challenge for the week over there. If you'd like to participate, click on the link above. Of all types of challenges, sketch challenges are my favorite. And this particular sketch is super fun just because of all the design elements that are so perfectly placed. Check back in tomorrow... I will be announcing the winner of the October 31st Cricut Cartridge. There's still time to enter, here's THE LINK for the details. Good luck everyone! :)

Dealing With A Deep Pantry

Well... I am putting things together in the new house.  We've moved and I'm starting to find stuff in the mountain of boxes... unfortunately, my camera cord is not one of them!!!  So sorry in advance for the pics that are coming in the next few postings while I look for it.  But with Kevin's surgery over with and getting out of cramped quarters in the apartment, I'm finally getting my life back and into the swing of ORGANIZING the new home!!!  Needless to say, after such a long time of not posting, I have a few things to show you.  But I'm going to start with the pantry. When we first purchased the house I had grand designs to turn this DEEP pantry into a step in-pantry by removing the shelving that is currently in there and replacing it with thinner shelving (going from about 20" shelves to 12" shelves).  There is nothing worse than a pantry that hides stuff because things get buried in deep shelving.  But after paying movers and buying window coverin
