Thank the Troops! - Operation Zipper Pouch

I want to do something to say thanks to the troops who are currently deployed. And I think I have a cute idea! We sell these really cute Lil' Expressions Mini Zipper Pouches that you can personalize with characters to represent your family (big and small) and you can put either the names under each character or you can put a saying under the characters. I am asking that everyone please purchase one and personalize it with your family characters (or you can even put snowmen!) and either put your names under each character or a phrase such as "Thank You!" or "The Crochet Family". You can put up to 6 people/pets/snowmen, up to 12 letters under each person, and up to 45 letters if your putting a phrase. These are $12 and personalization is $7, so a total of $19 before tax and shipping. (And don't forget, fo
r the month of September every $31 you spend you get any item at 31% off!) You can purchase as many as you would like. I will have an event on my website where you can place your order called "Operation Zipper Pouch" at under the My Parties tab. Or you can just let me know exactly what you would like and I can put in the order for you if you would rather. When you get to the shipping part, you would click the box that says ship to hostess (which will be me and I will ship all the zipper pouches at once overseas). I think this would be an amazing way to thank the troops "personally" and it would really mean a lot to them to know that YOUR family is supporting them. They need little reminders like this while they are overseas. So please, purchase a Lil Expressions Mini Zipper Pouch and let's give a personal thank you to the troops!!

Pink Platoon, Now Shipping: APO/FPO

  I am so very excited to announce that we are now shipping to APO/FPO addresses!!!!  I can now also have people overseas with ties to the military join my team!!!!

Thirty-One is celebrating our community of consultants and families that serve in the military.  They appreciate your service and your contributions to our freedom. This is their way of supporting you on your military bases-whether it be in the United States or abroad!

I've Got Something Special For You!

  I'm always looking to add more and more people to my growing team.  So as a little extra something special, I am going to personally purchase a set of product tags for every new person who joins my team for the month of September!!  These product tags come in handy, believe me!!  And they do NOT come in your enrollment kit!  I've heard a lot of people say they wish these came in the kit, and I have to agree that it would be very helpful to have them.  So what are you waiting for??  We just came out with a new catalog, so everything you get will be new and won't be discontinued for a while.  You get to set your own hours and be with your family.  You will earn money to help pay bills or just have some extra spending money for yourself.  And you get to meet an amazing group of people!! Also, you would be signing up at the start of the biggest shopping season of the year, so your business would be sure to kick off!! 

I look forward to hearing from you! ;)

Whew! What a month!

  Sorry I haven't posted anything new in a while!  I've been sooo busy with new parties, getting a lot of things organized, the new fall catalog coming out, and not to mention Hurricane Isaac that came through recently.  My town wasn't hit bad because we were right on the edge of it, but I did take my two boys and stayed at my mom's house just in case our electricity went out, since she has a generator.  My husband was activated for the storm and was gone for a few weeks.  Everything is just now starting to get back to normal lol.  I'll be posting updates on some new things so be on the look out!! :)

    Raffle for Operation Homefront

    I'm holding a raffle for Operation Homefront. Operation Homefront helps provide emergency assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors.

      My husband is in the Army National Guard and my dad was in the Marine Corps. I also have some uncles who were in the military as well, so I wanted to do a fundraiser to show my support. I know how hard it can be for some service members.

    You can check out all the details at the event page on Facebook:   This is where I will keep everyone up-to-date on which numbers are already taken.  Or you can always just email me at

    I am selling squares numbered 1-100 for only $5 each.  There will be two winners who will each receive $100 in Thirty-One products!  The rest of the proceeds will be donated to Operation Homefront. 

    Let's help out our service members and show them our gratitude for all they do!!

    Our New Addition

    Hi everyone!  I've been a little MIA lately, but for a good reason!  I went into labor on July 27th and our sweet little Logan Matthew was born at 8:51 that night!!  He was 7 lbs 11oz and 20.5 inches long.  I just wanted to share some of the cuteness with you all!

    It's been a little over a week now since I've done much with my Thirty-One business, so it's time to get busy!  It's a new month and that means new customer specials!!

    My First Team Member!

    Hi guys!  Today I recruited my first team member!  I'm excited to welcome her and I'm excited to welcome anyone else who would like to become part of my team!  I would like to share with you the benefits for becoming a Thirty-One consultant. 
    • You earn 25% commission of everything you sell.  And the higher you get promoted, the more raises you get! 
    • You have the opportunity to work with some amazing and supportive women who just want you to succeed.  
    • This is your chance to have your own business and you control how far you succeed in it.  
    • You control your own hours-meaning you can choose how much time you get to spend on yourself and your family.  
    • In order to stay active, you only need to have $200 in sales every rolling three months.  This is so easy to do!!  Especially when one qualifying party is at least $200.  
    • Once you sign up, you get an amazing starter kit that you can use for yourself and your parties.  This kit includes some amazing bags to get you started along with some business supplies such as catalogs, order forms, flyers, etc.  This kit is valued at over $300 and you get it for only $99!!  You get a choice between the brown kit (left) and the black kit (right).  Both include the same items, just different prints.
      Brown Kit
      Black Kit   

    • Another great thing about being a Thirty-One consultant, is that there is opportunity for advancement.
    • There are always incentives to sell, such as the current startswell program for new consultants!  This is a program designed to help you succeed in your first 90 days.  The more parties you have, the more you are rewarded!

    •  You have the opportunity to meet new friends, find new ways to grow personally, financial rewards, or just to support your own Thirty-One habit!
    • The products are so great they practically sell themselves!
    • Personalization is available on most products.  This is a great selling feature!
    • When you enroll, you get a website and e-newsletter for FREE for your first 3 months! After that, you can decide to keep it for a small fee ($9.95/mo for the website and $3/mo for the newsletter) or you can opt out of having it. 
    • You will have a casual work atmosphere surrounded by friends.  It's a party!
    • You can do online parties or catalog parties with e-invitations and online customer ordering capabilities in case you find yourself too busy to have home parties.
    • There are so many special rewards and discounts.  There are Dream Rewards incentives to earn Free Conference Bucks, Gift Cards, Disney trips, Cruises, etc. (It can honestly work for you! My sponsor just recently found out she got rewarded a paid trip to Cancun for her and her husband!!)
    • Bi-monthly commission checks.
    • FREE amenities at Celebrate and Connect Meetings as well as FREE catalogs and mini catalogs!
    • You can set up at fairs and festivals.
    • There are TONS of resources available to you for support and training.
    • Thirty-One can be whatever you make of it-a hobby, part-time job, or career!
    • There is no pressure at all! You will only be encouraged!
    • There is no penalty or fee if you decide to get out of the business!  You have nothing to lose by trying!!
    All this being said, please take the time to consider joining my Thirty-One team and thinking about why you would be interested.  If you have any questions, or would like to join my team, don't hesitate to contact me!!
