Lovely Time

I had the loveliest time tonight at an open house in Turlock.  I think the best thing about selling Uppercase Living is that I have met the most wonderful people that I just sense are supposed to be friends of mine.  The hostess tonight is one of those people.  In fact, we agreed to get together some time soon so that we can get to know one another better.  Sometimes I just feel "at home" with people, and I think that's a sign that we're supposed to be friends.  I also pray that people will feel "at home" with me so that they can be themselves and know that they are loved and accepted.  Who would have thought that my involvement with a product that I am having so much fun with would bring me friends?  An unexpected blessing, indeed!

How Could I Forget?!

Okay, I had planned to share this yesterday, but didn't have time. I have a BIG announcement to make:

You can know place an individual order on my website! If you want to purchase anything and would like it shipped to your home, you can now place an individual order! The catalog is now easier to look at and you still have all the choices of creating any customized expressions. This feature is NOT to use if you are placing an order with an open house because the hostess would not get credit for your order, but I know there are those times when people would just like to order an item without having to contact me or wait for an open house order to go in. SO, you can now shop for expressions at your convenience, 24/7, from the comfort of your own home.

UL at School!

I had a great time today sharing Uppercase Living at a school in Modesto. I had never considered doing an open house at a school, but it worked out great! The hostess (a kindergarten teacher) set out some snacks in her more-than-cute classroom, and her colleagues stopped by after school to join us. I had a great time, but in looking at the classroom, I realized am not cut out to teach kindergarten! :-)

Traditionally, teachers are one of the worst groups to try to present to because they like to talk, A LOT, but this group was great! We did our Make and Take project, looked at the various samples and idea catalogs, and came up with some creative gift ideas (ornaments and coasters!).

Okay, my fourth open house of the week is tomorrow afternoon, and I'm looking forward to staying here in Turlock for this one! :-)

The First of Five!

I just had the first of five open houses that are scheduled for this week. It was in Ripon (my fourth one in that fine city with another scheduled for next week), and I booked two more open houses tonight for November. One is in Escalon, and the other will be in Dos Palos of all places! It seems that there aren't many demonstrators in "them there parts", so they all are booking through me.

It's a busy time, but it is so fun to see people so excited about what they can do with the Uppercase Living products. No one at tonight's open house had ever heard of Uppercase Living before, so it was fun to expose them to this fun and personalizable (is that a word?) product. They couldn't believe that UL offers over 50 fonts and 32 different colors. I mean, how much more personalized can you get?

It's busy!

If you've taken a look at the calendar on my website (http://gena.uppercaseliving.net), I'm sure you've noticed the number of open houses scheduled for October.  It's crazy!  If you would like to attend an open house with me, just let me know.  I love having someone go along with me; it makes it that much more fun!  

If you are like me, you are looking for unique and personalized gifts that don't cost an arm and a leg.  Well, Uppercase Living has many, many items to choose from and a limitless "MyDesign" feature where you can create absolutely any name, saying, scripture, etc... that you desire in any of over 50 fonts and 32 colors.  Isn't that great? 

So..... if you are interested in ordering a few things for the holidays, let me know and I can add your items to another open house order, or perhaps you want to schedule an open house yourself so that you can earn free and half-price products.  Remember, double up rewards (the amount you have spent at other open houses x 2 and applied to your own open house) expire six months from the date of purchase.  

Also, the last day to order for "before-Christmas" delivery is November 30th, so don't delay!

Gift Ideas!

I was blessed enough to be able to spend some time with my mom today. We stopped by Dd's Discount, and I found some great glass coasters in a brushed silver holder that will be great to put initials on for Christmas gifts. I also thought that maybe I should put Christmas designs on them such as snowflakes, ornaments, Christmas trees, and such so that they would be a set of Christmas coasters. The coasters were clearance priced for $2.99! Is that great, or what?! I know many of you are thinking of making a set of coasters for some of those on your Christmas lists, so I thought you'd want to know about my great find.

I have some other gift ideas, but I don't want to post them here in case some of my family visit this blog. However, if you are able to come to an open house with me, I gladly share the great gift ideas I've come up with and made. Shhhhh.....don't tell my family!

Remember to keep your eyes open; great gifts are all around you waiting to be discovered. If you are interested in earning free product and half-price catalog items, all you have to do is host an open house. You can check out my available dates on my website: http://gena.uppercaseliving.net

Happy Tuesday to you all!
