This year, she included another friend who brought along Arbonne and Blessed Toys to add to my assortment of Cookie Lee, Pampered Chef, Finders Key Purse, Usborne Books and Discovery Toys... I know, I'm pathetic... I am such a sucker for these "home businesses", especially if I love the products. I don't do them to "sell" for the most part, just to be able to get the products for myself. I do have a couple Cookie Lee parties each year, but this annual "Open House" is the one that keeps me active and gives me a bit of extra Christmas money, and my friend gets to earn all kinds of wonderful stuff from all those companies.
this link to get a sneek peek if you'd like. I can't wait to give it to them. They are going to LOVE playing with it!
My friends house looked BEAUTIFUL! She the most creative person I know... I wish I had even HALF of her talents and creativeness! Her house looked so beautiful I just had to snap a few pictures. Being right before Thanksgiving, she decorated with a fall theme, using candles, pumpkins, and lots of pretty leaves. My favorite thing she did was use gold spray paint to paint all different sizes of pumpkins! They looked AWESOME! She said it was so easy and that she got the idea from Martha Stewart. I would never think to do something like that, but it really looked quite festive and elegant.
Another idea she got from a Martha magazine was for a Luscious Four-Layer Pumpkin Cake. It was so YUMMY and looked wonderful. You can see it in the above picture. I think I am going to have to give this recipe a try. The Pampered Chef Chocolate Chip Sensation was a huge hit as well, and was gone in no time.
Anyways, I am still trying to get orders processed and everything put away... as well as decide just what I am going to order. ;)
