IT Works #PRODUCTREVIEW #DIRECTSALES





Image result for It works




To order or to become a consultant http://newsheri2016.myitworks.com/


I have been hearing about this company "It Works" from all my friends. In fact,  I have one friend that lost a ton of weight on this program. I was fortunate to be able to review the On The Go Greens and did a little research on the company as I naturally have a love for Direct Sales as a former recruiter and sales rep for several companies. Here is what I found about It Works.. It does work! People claim that they have lost weight and their products seem to be good stuff. From my experience with the product I thought it tasted good and even though a one time try may not make me lose a bunch of weight I can see why people love these products.  The body wraps from everyone I personally know that has tried it they have raved about them and they love the results. When I raised my son I always had a direct sales company humming in the background or full-time to help make ends meet. Direct sales are a great way to make some extras and if you run your business like a business you should get business money or if you sell just to get your own stuff it is a great way to get discounts.  It Works appears to be a wonderful business opportunity. My personal feeling is if you are interested in this company it would be smart to actually sign up and sell to your friends and family. This will help you to get your stuff and keep you motivated and informed. I always feel that it is good to have a great upline and Sheri Brooker was a pleasure to work with. She was informed and quick to help me. Her information is above for ordering or if you would like to become a It Works Independent Distributor. I did receive my product for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.


For those of us who have multiple cats - you know the feeling:)

It is absolutely FREEZING today in Upstate NY. I pumped up the heat, hae Branch my Designer Dog (a mutt) snuggled next to me with his dog sweater on and two of my cats cuddled together in my husband's recliner next to me. Stone Cold Dead .. was Freezing! You could feel the cold as James W Ziskin writes a
missing girl in the 1960's . Ellie Stone is on the hunt for her trying to piece together what happened for the grieving mother. I loved this book. I felt that the author drawing me into the story. Ellie was a well developed character with a drinking worldly sense about her as a woman of the 60's. I loved traveling with her through this story. I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars. I am going to share this book with my local book buddies at a Senior center nearby as I know this will be a book they will want to discuss. I did receive my copy for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

Nourished by Lia Huber

Product DetailsTo order your ---->copy https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_10?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=nourished+lia+huber&sprefix=Nourished+%2Cstripbooks%2C159&crid=1K9OK1Z5G7H13


What a wonderful read! My husband got me really interested in food after we married 6 years ago as well as living on a farm. I realized that food is much more than that substance that puts fat on the bones. Lia Huber's Nourished is a wonder memoir of her journey in life and Christianity and food! I chuckled a bit when she spoke of seeing animals in the rough in France and felt sick to her stomach as I have grown in humility as a farmer's wife realizing that animals fulfill their God given purpose and some have the job of "harvesting those birds" while others just have to pick them up at the store. Remembering those early days on our farm realizing that those cute chickens, bunnies etc.. should be loved cared for and before harvest a quiet bowed head in prayer. And then processing them for the freezer.  Just part of food.. As God gives us all the grace to do what we are called to do. I loved the travel, the food, the recipes the insight and the personal growth  in this book . A Must read!  The recipes look wonderful and I look forward to preparing some of these for my fmaily. I give this book a 5 out of 5. I did receive my copy for review purposes and no monies were exchanged

I went Red for Christmas! #Beauty Blog

I got my hair cut about a year and a half ago and had the worse haircut of my life. I did what I could to fix it - but the problem was the girl did it EXACTLY like I said.. I told her the length and no style or anything it was a quick chop from her and the other hair dresser lying through his teeth telling me I looked great and a lot of friends telling me how I looked like a page boy LOL.... all said.. I held a few titles in Interior design and the beauty Industry in my life. I would usually explain to the customers the whys and the suggestions. I could get the "essence" of what they were looking into and then I would work with them to get it right. If I gave them exactly what they asked for trust me, it would not  have been right. I laugh now but at the time I looked hideous. Needless to say.. when you get a bad hair cut sometimes we want to have it fixed. The problem with that MORE CUTTING and if it already too short? So I just went with a funky do for awhile. half blonde.. half new growth coming in.. but these days of anything go , so be it. So I had a couple of choices  when I felt I was ready and asked my husband Blonde or Red? Since it was Christmas I went with the BRIGHT RED! -  I let my husband color my hair as since I moved to the country I haven't found a good hair dresser yet and have been happier with him just putting color on for me. I remember seeing a local nail salon here putting just about kid stickers on someone's nails and said oh boy, I guess I am in the country as I had my nails done for years. I did hear of a great place right in my town though and I need to check that out. .. once I find a good hair dresser I will tip her to the max so she always takes me in. It is worth every penny!!!(If you look at my lastest youtube.. the red is BRIGHT and with no make up and that bright hair .. It did look funny LOL ) but I am not really vain so I posted it anyway.. keeping it real.. All I could think of was Bozo! When you go from one shade to something different believe it or not you can wear almost any color. Movie stars do it all the time.. the problem is.. You have to have the MONEY to change all your clothes, your hair style, your make up , etc.. to look good. So now I am working with a new color and trying to get my clothes and make up right to get away with the red. So the color is in my opinion a little like a black on a red head but for some reason I am getting away with it .. unlike the time I did go Black I couldn't pull it off but then again.. if I had the clothes and make up.. I am wondering too if the red will fade as red usually does. So at this point just the fact that I am not having those LONG roots showing I am happy. I remember the days of living in the city where I would rather die than have my roots show like that and I never saw myself without my make up or hair down.. but country life is different and girls wear their hair longer at older ages and a pony or even pigtails are totally acceptable. I love the laid back life but I want to look nice so I am trying to be a little less laid back as days and days of quiet and working and not seeing people in person it can be easy to slip into your pajamas , no make up etc.. where your big night out is Walmart and Burgar King verses weekends out with friends , dinner and everyone dressed to the hilt. So I went RED.. and all the things that go with Red.. - One thing  more.. there are a lot of people in our little country area with red hair. It is a little like 7 brides for 7 brothers with all these redheads.. so I love it as it makes me laugh to see how I am conforming to the area after living in the big city of the suburbs LOL . So I went Red for Christmas :) Boy, I never thought changing my hair color would bring so many thoughts. :)

I regret nothing.. Take a break #SWEEPSTAKES #FREEBIES #FREESWEEPSTAKENEWSLETTER



check out my free sweepstake newsletter http://sweepstakersfreehotandalot.blogspot.com/


Stop sweepstaking!!! Take a break from your hobby at least one day a week.. or at least tone it down. The more you enter the more you win, it's true..However, when you take a good break take a nap, take a day off, etc.. from your hobby well.. You will be refreshed AND... You will get a new look at the hobby!
For those of you who are totally into the hobby , you won't lose your competitive edge but by taking a break you will become stronger and can clear your brain. It is like rebooting the computer and getting all the junk cleared out. I firmly believe over time just by taking a break if you look back a year later the creative ideas, the ah ha moments of a new way to enter or a change in your sweepstake strategy will just come to you and for me I pray for creative ideas as it says in the good book God speaks in a small still voice _ I kings 19::11-13 11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lordwas not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lordwas not in the earthquake:
12 And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.
13 And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?
Taking a step back from your sweepstakes is smart. In the long run you will win more. There is much to be said about getting completely quiet and settled after the rush rush rush of life and sweeping.  You have to take a break and gather your strength in order to be faithful or you will most likely burn out and take LONG seasons of not sweeping. So just do what you gotta do on those days the prizes you really want to win or none and enjoy your family and life.. you may find you are winning more and not just in sweepstakes but in life.  WINNING!!! Share this with a friend please the more we help each other the more we all win :)


Here are a few to help you get started today :)

Meet Connie Rowland Author and Artist

 Connie Rowland artist from Master's Hand Collection  I have exciting news! Today we have a guest post from author and artist Connie Rowland! Please check out her work at  http://www.mastershandcollection.com/









 In this newly released art book, Jesus Names Above All Names, up and coming Christian artist Master’s Hand Collection combines American Sign Language with the beauty of nature to bring the truth of Scripture alive. Each picture in the book is meant to shed light on who Jesus is and why we need Him in our lives today.
So, who is Jesus? He is the Son of God and the Savior of the world! Because of His great love for us, Jesus left behind the glory of heaven, came to earth as a humble servant and died on the cross for our sins. He became the sacrifice that we needed and could never be for ourselves. And because of that sacrifice God has highly exalted Jesus and given Him the name which is above all names. (Philippians 2:9)
This is the message of “Master’s Hand Collection Jesus Name Above All Names”. It is a celebration of who Jesus is and a reminder to live for Him every day. May the truth of Jesus bring peace and understanding to your heart as only He can.
Connie Rowland is the artist and blogger behind Master’s Hand Collection. Her desire is to inspire and encourage believers to seek a deeper relationship with Jesus and to show the love and saving grace of Christ to an unsaved world. When she’s not creating new artwork, you can find her on the web at www.mastershandcollection.com . Please feel free to stop by and say hello and check out the art gallery. Many blessings to you!

You will have like a ticker of sweepstakes all ready to enter 24/7 and oh so easy! Most woobox sweepstakes are "referral type" sweepstakes. Some people can get literally thousands of extra hits by promoting themselves etc.. Many sweepstake sites use their personal links too. I know I am a newsletter and I have my links there ... each time someone enters from a link the person. will get credit if you hit there link.. so here is what you do if you don't want to use a referral.

The Glass City by Jen Knox #BESTHOLIDAYREADS #BOOKREVIEW





This book had two things that made me just love it. Number one it was short, not that I don't love books but sometimes you just want a quick read I love short reads for my visit to the doctor or dentist. The second think I loved was that it was intense and reminded me a bit of the Twight Zone. Characters were in situations that made you think and the outcomes were clever. I decided that I would not share any spoilers as I think my statement about watching the Twight Zone will get you thinking. This is a great book for a man or a woman - A must read that you will remember for a long time! I loved it. I did receive my copy for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

Tent your #AFRICANVIOLETS #INDOORGARDEN #GARDENING

Image result for Tenting African violets   This year I started to "tent" my african violets. I noticed a dramatic difference in their growth this winter.

African violets are easy to grow .. here is my secret.. only water them from the bottom when they are BONE DRY and try to plant them in a SHALLOW planter. with that.. most of us haven't planted them in a shallow container or we don't have the space - so if I have a larger pot I put them in a big plastic bowl and fill it half full when I see the NEXT DAY that it is damp on the top I don't water it again until it is BONE DRY.

Okay.. on to what is called "tenting" I found the best method is to start a leaf in a soda bottle with only water .. plant it in a dixie cup and stick it in on the lid of a mayo jar (or mason jar) then put the jar on top (a upside jar) using it as a green house.. if I have a bigger class container all the better if none.. use a plastic bag..

this is great for starting plants..

now onto the bigger plants..  I just try not to over water them as that will definitely kill your african violets.. when the leaves wilt .. that is a good time to water your violets as they are succulents and wilting leaves mean feed me momma! I have tented a few.. I don't know if that has done much.. but I can try it again as to be honest I have so many violets I just haven't gotten into tenting the big ones for long. .. I did notice though that it is VERY DRY In my house with our electric heater going so I am actually struggling to keep them moist but once they are in a good tent.. I probably won't have to water them all winter.. so that is a project I will be working on. None of my violets are flowering.. but I have lots of babies and have not feed them any fertilizer but I just had 3 flowering about a month ago.
