It's Time to Clean Out Your Makeup Bag....

Since expired cosmetics can cause skin irritation and eye infections,
it's important to replace them often.
Unlike food, though, cosmetics aren't required to have an expiration date on their packaging.
Instead, you'll have to keep track of when you open it. If you have a hard time keeping track of when you've bought things, just use a Sharpie to write down the purchase date.
But use common sense: If your gloss is gloopy, your nail polish is separating, or your lipstick has a funny smell, it's time to toss it. I know that most of us see throwing makeup out as throwing away $$$$, but it worth an eye infection???

I have the Hookup for Personalized Party Decorations

Check out this blog:

Sheila is perhaps one of the most talented 'Dolls' I work with. She has mad skills in the decorating department. I swear she could be the next Martha Stewart, but she's so darned modest, she'd never admit it! If you need a party planner, or personalized party decorations, seek her out! Oh, and she makes scrumptious sweets!!!

Mother's Day is May 8th

Yesssss! Looking forward to another Mother's Day filled with lots of handmade goodies that my babies bring home! I love to see their excited faces as I open my tissue wrapped gift with tons of glitter spilling out....LOVE IT!!!!! Oh, and of course, my 3 year old son handing me my gift on the Friday before Mother's Day after I pick him up from daycare...He is so innocent.

Well on that note, I'm just reminding everyone....and especially myself, to get on the shopping for mom mode. Last year we invited my mother and mother in law for a brunch at our home. It was nice seeing my daughters decorate the table and participate wholeheartedly. Of course, I did most of the work, but I did not mind it one bit. Both mothers were very appreciative and I thought it was so special that I'm doing it again this year. I haven't been asked yet what I want for Mother's Day....and I'm sure it's coming soon, but along with the usual 'I just want all my children to behave and do well in school and clean their rooms', a nice new leather bag would be juuuuust nice....oh yeah, and a couple of extra hours of sleep. That'll do it for this year!

Since I'm on the shopping for Mom kick, please take a look at some Avon goodies! Maybe your mom (or yourself) needs some new body lotion. What about some new lipstick shades. I invite you to take a look at the online catalog...just click on the link on the left side of the screen that says Current Campaign and take a browse. Next order date is this Thursday, April 14th. As always, email me your order, or call me.

Easter Blessings,
