Mega LO share!

My poor little blog. Its so very random! Its been a while since I posted about the family and I have about a million lo's to share just because its been so long!

My boys are wonderful!! Benjamin is talking more and more everyday and I am constantly proud and awed by how smart he is! We are in 2 classes this fall. One is called Wee Explore where we are meeting at different parks around the area to go on nature walks, explore, do crafts, and other fun stuff. Yesterday was our first class and Benjamin loved it. The other class is called Wonder Years and it is fun, organized playgroup. I really think Benjamin would enjoy preschool so we are thinking about sending him next year. I think it would be hard on Mommy!

Alexander is amazing as well! He will be 6 months old in a couple days!! Wow, what a fast 6 months this has been. He is working hard on crawling and can make it across the room pretty quickly. He is keeping Shawn and I on our toes!!

We are in the middle of home improvements. Our walls are half painted, but the ones that are done look really good. We are attempting organization, but we are at the point that it is more chaotic than organized. I brought a bunch of maternity clothes and baby clothes to a consignment sale and the rest are going to charity. That was a little emotional, but the reasonable part of my brain told me that we can't keep everything. I saved the outfits that both boys came home from the hospital in and that's it.

So, we are keeping busy! I've managed to do some scrapping, but not a ton. I do have a ton of lo's to share though because I haven't posted them in so long!! This is about 2 months worth of lo's.

Virtual Hostess Sale is still on and a photomask freebie

Just a quick reminder about my lia sophia "virtual hostess" sale going on. Do you love fun fashion jewelry? Lia Sophia has high end looks and great prices. Here are the details about the "virtual hostess" sale. If you enjoy my freebies, all I ask is that you take a look at my lia sophia independent advisor personal page (http://www.liasophia.com/michelleblagg). Thanks!!

You will have the opportunity to earn entries. At the end of the contest I will randomly pick 1 entry and that lucky winner will win all the hostess benefits for this virtual show. If the show is qualified at $250 you will win the 4 hostess bonus items, 2 1/2 price items, 20% of the show sales in free jewelry, the September monthly special items (3 more items at 1/2 off) and if the show reaches $600 in sales you will have the opportunity to purchase an exclusive hostess only watch, a $150 value, for only $35!


So here's how to earn entries:
  • Make a purchase using the customer save plan during this show (2 items full price, 3rd most expensive item 1/2 price) = 1 entry. Don't forget the September monthly special. Once you purchase your 1st 3 items, your next 3 are all 1/2 off. In other words purchase 6 items and get your 4 most expensive 1/2 off!
  • Make a purchase of $100 or more (before tax and shipping) = 3 entries
  • Make a purchase of at least the customer save plan, plus book a show (live show if you live in central Florida or catalog show if you live anywhere else in the U.S.) = 5 entries
That's it! Here is how to view the catalog and order:

Go to: www.liasophia.com/michelleblagg
Click: Our Jewelry link
Click: Fall/Winter 2009 Catalog (and/or Kiam Family Signature collection)

If you are interested in hosting a live or catalog show or if you have any questions, you can contact me here:http://www.liasophia.com/sites/michelleblagg/contact-me

You must make your purchase and/or set-up your show by the show close date of September 27, 2009.

I'm a new Lia Sophia Adviser, win free jewelry and a freebie!

You may have noticed that my CT blinkies have shrunk quite a bit. This is because I recently became a new Lia Sophia Jewelry Adviser!! I was very sad to give up most of my CT's, but I need to devote my very little free time to growing my business.

Have you heard of Lia Sophia before? Lia Sophia is a company that sells high end fashion jewelry for reasonable prices. I've been to 2 Lia Sophia parties and was impressed by a number of things:
  1. The quality of the jewelry. Each piece is very well crafted. You can feel the quality when you touch each piece.
  2. The guarantee. Lia Sophia believes in its jewelry. So much so that they offer a 100% guarantee on all their jewelry. If you break a piece 10 years from now, you can return it. It you decide you just don't like a piece anymore, you can return it. As long as you keep the white receipt that comes with your purchase, you can return any piece at any time for any reason!!
  3. The sale! Lia Sophia jewelry is always on sale and you decide what is on sale. 365 days a year Lia Sophia offers the customer save plan. For every 2 pieces of jewelry you purchase, the 3rd is 1/2 off. And here's the great part. The most expensive piece of your 3 is the 1/2 price item. If you pick out 2 pairs of $16 earrings and a $130 necklace, you'll play full price for the earrings and get the necklace for $65! You'll get all 3 for cheaper than if you just purchase the necklace!!
  4. The hostess benefits! With a qualified show ($250 show), the hostess is entitled to 4 hostess bonus items (anything in the catalog $100 and under for $15 or anything over $100 for the hostess bonus price listed in the catalog), 2 items at 1/2 off, 20% of show sales in free jewelry, monthly special items, and a hostess only special item! As a hostess, you receive $100's in jewelry and pay about 20-30% of retail price!
To see all of Lia Sophia's beautiful styles check out the catalog here:
