An Update...

So far $250 has been raised for those families who have been relocated to Arizona. They have just released a list of the people who have ended up here.

Here is my plan. One more week I run this fund-raiser. After that, I print out the list, put all the names in a hat, and have my daughter pick two. Then I split the money, write two checks, and hunt these people down. I don't want to spread it too thin, because then no one would really benefit.

Unless in the next week I raise a couple grand, then I will change my tune a bit, and be able to spread a little more love around. ;-)

Which means- DONATE Gosh-darnit! I know alot of you have in other ways, but I made it so you will benefit too... :-))

Just keep scrolling down...

Hurricane Relief- a call for help

Hundreds of victims of Hurricane Katrina are being flown in to Arizona starting today. As much as my husband and I would love to take a family in and give them a home as they work to get back on their feet, we have decided that it is just not something we are able to do at this time.

Instead, I have arranged a few card packages you can choose from to help me raise funds. I plan on finding a family or families to "host"- and all proceeds from your purchases will go directly to them. Not to some bigger organization where all money goes into one big fund. All your donations will go directly to a family in need.

Package #1: Four-pack of personalized notecards- $12.00 (samples)
Package #2: Girlfriend Collection personalized (4 notecards, 8 writing sheets)- $18.50 (samples)
Package #3A: Personalized Expressions 8-pack (4 name/4 thank-you)- $16.00 (samples)
#3B: Personalized Expressions 16-pack (8 each)- $28.00
Package #4: 10-pack All-occasion Inspirational Cards- $15.00 (samples)

Keep in mind ALL proceeds will go directly to a family who has lost everything from this tragedy. That is 50% of the purchase price. CONTACT ME TODAY WITH YOUR ORDER!

phone: 602-410-3204

Thank you ALL for your efforts. No one asked for this, and I feel we must do all we can to help those in need.

This is your day- to help as well. :-)

Awesome happenings!

A few neat things are happening to me and my business right now. Over the summer PS I Love You worked with me to create a fund-raising package for schools. Having been the president of my own children's PTO for two years, I have first-hand experience in how the fund-raising works in schools, and exactly what schools are looking for. It's very exciting for me, because not only did I get to choose the designs that are to be used in the fund-raiser, but I also helped decide on a price that would help get a school a decent amount of funds. So of course I will be testing this out on my own children's school. If anyone would be interested in a fund-raiser of this sort, please let me know as I would love to help out!

Another great thing is PSILY cards is going to be featured on Good Day Arizona! We have a whole new holiday line, and they will be talking about them on the show September 23rd. Yay!

But even before that- yours truly will be making (hopefully) a little TV appearance of her own. That is correct folks, on Friday, September 16th, Sonoran Living Live will have the Early Rizers in the house! Early Rizers is a breakfast networking club for women in business, and we were invited to sit in the audience.

So keep your eyes peeled, you may just see me on your TV!

The Journey is Complete- until next year!

I am trying to figure out how a week has gone by since the party, and I am just NOW getting around to writing about it. Time flies when the kids are home from school and you are focusing all of your energy to keeping them entertained for a few months. :-)

I must say, everything went off without a hitch (so I'm told). We got to the pool early enough to decorate before guests arrived, and the kids were able to go out and swim. The theme was as divided as my two girls are- half Barbie Princess and half Hello Kitty. Of course, you have all these decorations, but really do the kids care? As soon as their friends started arriving, everyone disappeared out to the pool, not to be seen until it was time for cake and presents.

Cake and presents. I probably should have planned that differently. We had cake first, and by the time we got to presents, all the sugar-highs had started to kick in. I separated all the presents so each of them could have their own separate turn. By the time we finished one child and started the other, the natives were rather jittery. All the adults sort of had a glazed-look in their eyes...

However, I am told it went smoothly. It's funny to me that no matter how much you plan and schedule, you will still run around like a crazy-person doing things during the entire party. Don't get me wrong- I did get time to sit and chat. It just got a little hairy when all the kids were in the room together... hehehe.

The looks on my babies faces made it all worth it, though. They were quite pleased, and happy to see all of their friends and family. Each of them got their own special time, AND their own special cake- what more could a child ask for?
