A Few Random Things!!!

Every once in a while, I just need to do post of random items and business and personal things to share! This is one of those posts!

I just have to show off pictures of my family and Remington in his blessing outfit at our church last Sunday! He is such a special little guy. Such an easy going, loving baby! I'm so glad he is in our family!

He is starting to smile and it just makes me heart flutter! I'm definitely in love!

I love my kids!!!! Especially when my son wants to wear his dad's tie to church!

I have some openings coming up for advertising buttons on my sidebar and giveaways and business highlights! Life is so busy right now so if you want to do a giveaway or business highlight, I would prefer if you did the write up yourself! Plus it will cost less if you write it up yourself!!! You can read my prices and stats HERE.


My family will be taking a trip to Louisiana at the end of September to visit my in-laws and see some of my husband's college buddies! I will be gone a week. I am looking for some guest posters to fill the time while I am gone. I will need at least 5. If I get more than that, I will just have you guest post when I am back.

The requirements:

1. The post needs to be new/not published on your blog.

2. You must link back to my blog on the day I publish your post.

3. It must be a great idea - suitable for this blog!

Email me at somedaycrafts@gmail.com and I can send more details.


One of the reason life is so busy is because of my little Paparazzi Accessories business. I had my first party/open house a month ago. I've sold about $2000 in jewelry and accessories in the past month at only 6 events. With a 45% commission, this has been a great investment for me and my family. I'm averaging about $40 a hour in profit (but I'm reinvesting it into the business to money making on steriods). From those events, I have at least 12 more parties booked for the next 6 weeks. I could have more if I wanted them, but my family deserves my time! This pays so much better than my day job. The average party is about $225 company wide so the commission would be about $100 in two hours. I'm hoping to quit soon.

If you are looking to improve your financial situation or looking for a part time job that pays well, I would love to help you. My consultant number is #1681. I have a blog to support those who join my team and talk with you on the phone. Please let me know if you are interested in becoming a consultant - especially if you live outside of Utah. You have the most room for growth. There are still states that have less than 5 total consultants in them. Email me at jewelryforfive@gmail.com. You can read more about Paparazzi Accessories HERE.

On an exciting note about Paparazzi Accessories, my husband and I have been creating a website where we can sell it to all of you! It will be ready in hopefully a week or two. I wasn't going to tell you the website, but I can't resist! You can see it at jewelryforfive.com, but please know this is only part of the jewelry and you cannot buy it yet. The $5 jewelry is so cute and trendy' and women, teens and tweens love it!!!! There is no reason to go to a mall to spend $15-20 on the items I can sell for $5! I am also hoping to be able to host online jewelry parties for all of you! Fall and Christmas will be an exciting time. Please contact me at jewelryforfive@gmail.com for more info.

A couple of weeks ago, I attended a blogger meet-up. I see these all over blogland and it seems to be the same popular bloggers. I'm a little intimidated to go to those because I just don't feel "cool" enough. Any of you ever feel that way when you look at other people's blogs and think about meeting them in person? I decided to go to this blogger meet-up and decided I wanted to be "cool." So I made sure I got in just about every picture I could. I laughed about it every time. Bloggers are cool. That is a fact! They are kind. They are accepting. They don't care about my crazy little insecurities. It was fun hanging out with a bunch of wacky, kind DIY ladies.

Check out my accessories. Any idea where I got them? Ha. Ha.

I don't have enough time to say the name of every blogger, their blog and link over to them. I apologize! Do you recognize any? Fun bunch of ladies!!!

One of those bloggers, Tausha, is having a giveaway for Annie Sloan Chalk paint today and I thought you might want to know it. Chalk paint is definitely something you will see more of in the craft and home decor blog world. Head over to Sassy Style Redesign to enter! You can also watch a segment she did on TV about it. Tausha is the one with the awesome hair right behind me in the first picture. She is so adorable and funny!

I know there are more things I could add to this post, but I don't want to overload you! And I have to go to my job! I love you all. (Is that strange that I just wrote that?)


  1. Aww what a gorgeous little guy. Good job on doing so well with the accessory business. It sounds like it would be tons of fun too.

  2. I'm so glad your jewelry business is going well! How exciting! And the jewelry you wore at the blogger meet up is so cute on you!

  7. Oh, he is so sweet. Thanks for letting me snuggle him the other night. That picture of your family is darling. It was so great to finally meet you in person.
