It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas!

I had an open house in Modesto last night and I was able to show off my newest Christmas decoration with a UL expression. Check out the picture:

I sprayed frost on a glass block, applied a beautiful UL Christmas expression, and then put lights inside before wrapping it up with a pretty ribbon and glittered leaves. It looks great! It also make a great night light, so I've been thinking this would be a great idea for a child or baby. I could put the child's name over their initial or some other fun embellishment, puts some lights in it and viola! A beautiful, personalized nightlight! You can check this item out at my multi-vendor open houses the next two weekends.

The first on is tonight (Friday, Nov. 14 from 5:00 to 8:00 PM) and tomorrow (Sat. November 15 from 10:00 to 2:00 PM). The address is 1138 Kay Circle in Turlock. You can use your GPS or Google Maps to find it. I'd love to see you there and the other vendors will be Home Interiors, Avon, Tupperware, and Scentsy.

The next mulit-vendor open house is on Sat. November 22 from 10:00 - 3:00 PM. The location is 2581 Jubilee Drive in Turlock (again use your GPS or Google Maps) and the other vendors, so far, are: Gold Canyon Candle, At Home America, Isogenix, Mary Kay, Cookie Lee, My Little Lovie, and Pampered Chef. This open house is having a drawing for a gift basket valued at over $100.00 with items from each vendor. It should be fun.

Of course, you can now order directly through my website if that option works best for you. The shipping costs are slightly more, but it is delivered right to your door. You can also email me at anytime with an order and I'll get that taken care of for you.

Thanks to you all for being such great customers! I have absolutely loved getting to know so many great people through this silly little whim of mine called Uppercase Living!

Lovely Time

I had the loveliest time tonight at an open house in Turlock.  I think the best thing about selling Uppercase Living is that I have met the most wonderful people that I just sense are supposed to be friends of mine.  The hostess tonight is one of those people.  In fact, we agreed to get together some time soon so that we can get to know one another better.  Sometimes I just feel "at home" with people, and I think that's a sign that we're supposed to be friends.  I also pray that people will feel "at home" with me so that they can be themselves and know that they are loved and accepted.  Who would have thought that my involvement with a product that I am having so much fun with would bring me friends?  An unexpected blessing, indeed!

How Could I Forget?!

Okay, I had planned to share this yesterday, but didn't have time. I have a BIG announcement to make:

You can know place an individual order on my website! If you want to purchase anything and would like it shipped to your home, you can now place an individual order! The catalog is now easier to look at and you still have all the choices of creating any customized expressions. This feature is NOT to use if you are placing an order with an open house because the hostess would not get credit for your order, but I know there are those times when people would just like to order an item without having to contact me or wait for an open house order to go in. SO, you can now shop for expressions at your convenience, 24/7, from the comfort of your own home.

UL at School!

I had a great time today sharing Uppercase Living at a school in Modesto. I had never considered doing an open house at a school, but it worked out great! The hostess (a kindergarten teacher) set out some snacks in her more-than-cute classroom, and her colleagues stopped by after school to join us. I had a great time, but in looking at the classroom, I realized am not cut out to teach kindergarten! :-)

Traditionally, teachers are one of the worst groups to try to present to because they like to talk, A LOT, but this group was great! We did our Make and Take project, looked at the various samples and idea catalogs, and came up with some creative gift ideas (ornaments and coasters!).

Okay, my fourth open house of the week is tomorrow afternoon, and I'm looking forward to staying here in Turlock for this one! :-)

The First of Five!

I just had the first of five open houses that are scheduled for this week. It was in Ripon (my fourth one in that fine city with another scheduled for next week), and I booked two more open houses tonight for November. One is in Escalon, and the other will be in Dos Palos of all places! It seems that there aren't many demonstrators in "them there parts", so they all are booking through me.

It's a busy time, but it is so fun to see people so excited about what they can do with the Uppercase Living products. No one at tonight's open house had ever heard of Uppercase Living before, so it was fun to expose them to this fun and personalizable (is that a word?) product. They couldn't believe that UL offers over 50 fonts and 32 different colors. I mean, how much more personalized can you get?

It's busy!

If you've taken a look at the calendar on my website (http://gena.uppercaseliving.net), I'm sure you've noticed the number of open houses scheduled for October.  It's crazy!  If you would like to attend an open house with me, just let me know.  I love having someone go along with me; it makes it that much more fun!  

If you are like me, you are looking for unique and personalized gifts that don't cost an arm and a leg.  Well, Uppercase Living has many, many items to choose from and a limitless "MyDesign" feature where you can create absolutely any name, saying, scripture, etc... that you desire in any of over 50 fonts and 32 colors.  Isn't that great? 

So..... if you are interested in ordering a few things for the holidays, let me know and I can add your items to another open house order, or perhaps you want to schedule an open house yourself so that you can earn free and half-price products.  Remember, double up rewards (the amount you have spent at other open houses x 2 and applied to your own open house) expire six months from the date of purchase.  

Also, the last day to order for "before-Christmas" delivery is November 30th, so don't delay!

Gift Ideas!

I was blessed enough to be able to spend some time with my mom today. We stopped by Dd's Discount, and I found some great glass coasters in a brushed silver holder that will be great to put initials on for Christmas gifts. I also thought that maybe I should put Christmas designs on them such as snowflakes, ornaments, Christmas trees, and such so that they would be a set of Christmas coasters. The coasters were clearance priced for $2.99! Is that great, or what?! I know many of you are thinking of making a set of coasters for some of those on your Christmas lists, so I thought you'd want to know about my great find.

I have some other gift ideas, but I don't want to post them here in case some of my family visit this blog. However, if you are able to come to an open house with me, I gladly share the great gift ideas I've come up with and made. Shhhhh.....don't tell my family!

Remember to keep your eyes open; great gifts are all around you waiting to be discovered. If you are interested in earning free product and half-price catalog items, all you have to do is host an open house. You can check out my available dates on my website: http://gena.uppercaseliving.net

Happy Tuesday to you all!

Biggest Open House Yet!

Last Thursday, I had my biggest open house yet in Ripon! It was lots of fun, and boy, can women talk and laugh it up! The only problem I had with that large of a group was getting all of their attention at the same time to be able to give them information. I applied one of the hostesses expressions that she had ordered from a previous open house on her wall. It turned out great!

Let's see.....any new news? Well, as a matter of fact there is! First of all, be sure to check my website (http://gena.uppercaseliving.net) frequently as the monthly specials are always changing and any new information will be posted on my home page. Also, October is almost full with open houses already, so if you are thinking of hosting an open house in order to get holiday gift shopping done, you need to contact me quickly! Remember, if you host a qualifying open house, you will earn free and half-price product, as well as be eligible for hostess only expressions.

I am hoping to post some pictures of my youngest daughter's bedroom which we just re-did. She wanted flowers in her room, so I let her pick out which ones and which colors she would like. We had a lot of fun painting, moving furniture, and putting up her flowers.

Remember, I'd love it if you would email me pictures of your projects. If I choose to add your picture to my website, you will earn a five inch embellishment of your choice!

Keep the holidays in your thoughts; perhaps Uppercase Living can be part of your gift-giving this year.

I'm still here!

I've had three open houses since I last posted, and the one last night was a great time. It was especially nice to stay afterward and visit with the hostess; it gave us time to catch up with one another! :-)

I just want to put a little bug out there that I will be having a Make and Take night with various holiday items. I'll post pictures of what you can choose from, along with the prices, and if you are interested, you can pre-register and join us for the fun. If you think you might want to join us, mark Thursday, Oct. 23 at 7:00 PM on your calendar.

It will be necessary for you to pre-register and pay so that I can have all of the supplies ordered, here, and ready to go. There's some great items, so check back soon.

Okay, off to make the final few decisions for Make and Take night!

Fun Times!

I had an open house this evening (including a dinner), and we had a blast!  Tiffany had everyone show up at 5:30, and she put out quite the spread.  Everyone was relaxed as Tiffany has a warm and welcoming home.

The neat projects suggested tonight?  One teacher is looking to add some words to a display in her classroom.  She took a sample to see if it would adhere to some screening that she has put up on a wall in her classroom as part of a display.  I'm anxious to know if it will work.

Another friend is looking to create some special, personalized Christmas gifts.  She has found some great wooden pictures frames that have room for a 4 x 6 horizontal photo at the top and a large area underneath that is perfect for an expression.  She will paint the frames and then put the family's initial in soft cooper behind the family's full last name in chocolate brown.  She is then adding "est. 1998" in smaller letters below the name and monogram.  It will look beautiful and I'm sure it will be received with wonder and thanks.

Another friend is custom creating the following saying to fit on a canvas that she has:  Change your thought and change your world.  Isn't that great?  This saying is in the idea catalog, but the size didn't work for her, so she took care of that by creating a MyDesign expression to order.   I think that is a good thought to end on tonight: Change your thoughts and change your world.

Great Times!

I just got back from a great open house at my friend, Cheri's, house. We had fun putting expressions on tiles, and Cheri had the word, "Transforming" put on the wall over a mirror in her kitchen. Looks great!

If you want to order something, but don't want to pay the extra shipping charge for individual orders, just email your order to me and I'll add it to Cheri's order. I'll then send your total to you.

I have a couple of August dates left for Open House, so contact me quickly if you'd like to earn free and half price product.

Hello and welcome to my new blog!  

I look forward to sharing some fun ideas and updates about Uppercase Living.  There have been some fun things going on, and I just needed a place to share them.

Feel free to check in now and again to see what's new.

Thanks for stopping by this new blog.  Blessings to you all!
