Welcome to My April Newsletter!

Hello Spring!  Our first full month of spring is upon us and the temperatures are showing that upward trend.

Last month we transitioned to a 3rd party shipper and have begun to ship from IDS in Indiana.  If you placed an order that has not yet shipped, it should ship this week.  I am keeping an eye on the orders.  Note:  Your orders will be delivered by FedEx now.

The last week of March, I hosted a Pop-up Party in my VIP group on Facebook.  I am bringing that same party to my webpage on April 11th at 7 pm.  If you are not on Facebook, here is your chance to see how you can host your own party right here!  No Facebook required

With the new format being used on my website for the newsletter, I will be able to archive newsletters in case you wanted to go back and look at something.

Check out everything in my newsletter and come back a few times during the month to catch anything that happens mid-month!

Your favorite (I hope) TS Consultant – Gail J

Website Visit Winners

We had a little over 120 visits to my website (tsbygailj.com) in March.

I draw one free sample for every 20 visits to my website during the month.

Although we had over 120 visits, I only know of 18 people who visited.  Since the purpose of this is to draw folks to my website, I drew 5 winners from those I know visited.

The winners are:

  • Jenny Bryant
  • Donna Carrow
  • Ellie Blackwell
  • Maria Hassel
  • Abbie Uhler
  • Dawn Beck

I know you visited 2 ways:  If you click on the emails I send via Constant contact or complete a form from the website.

My website host tells me how many folks visited.

So, if you are checking out my website from a text message or just coming back to see what may be new, fill out the form so I know you were here!

Host a Party and Get Rewarded (Fill Out Contact Form Below to Book a Party)

Rewards for Hosting a Party

Regardless of the Host Special, you will get these rewards when you host a party.  

Any party type qualifies except for fundraisers.  In that case, I will give you the cash equivalent to the rewards.

Notice at $500, you get FREE shipping on your host rewards, host special AND half priced items.

You earn half price items (any item counts, even collections) when someone books a party from your party.

April Host Special

April flowers bring May flowers.  It also brings the start of salad season.

What better way to kick it off than hosting a party and earning the  Salad Shakeup 5 Meal Kit valued at $49.99.

This kit includes the TS Shake & Pour so you can make your own salad dressing.

***You can host your own party during the scroll party if you like OR use the party in my FB group OR host a sampling party.***

May Host Special

Host a party in the month of March and earn these items in addition to the Host Rewards.

The top level is our 5 Meal Outdoor Griddle Kit, just in time for summer.

Remember, your guests will earn VIP Rewards when they order online using their account.

There will be a new Pop-up Party theme coming in May!

 

 

April Client Special

April just says spring and nothing is more spring like than a Berry Blast Cheese Ball.  Even better is getting your very own Berry Blast Cheese Ball for just $6 when you place a $59 order. 

As with all monthly client specials, scroll down to see recipes  using this mix.  There is so much more than a cheese ball, as good as it is.

Remember, when you place your order online with your account, you will also earn VIP Reward Points!

Berry Blast Cheese Ball Recipes

Berry Blast Fruit Dip

A light and refreshing fruit dip perfect for any occasion.

Cream cheese, marshmallow creme and Berry Blast Cheese Ball Mix is all you need!

Strawberries 'n Cream Pie

The perfect summer dessert, a creamy pie filling topped with fresh strawberries.

It is as simple as a frozen pie crust, a block of cream cheese, the Berry Blast Cheese Ball mix and a container of frozen whipped topping.

Berry Blast Cheese Danish

Puff pastry filled with a berry flavored cream cheese and chopped berries, folded in half and baked.

This recipe swaps out the pie crust and whipped topping from the pie recipe and adds in puff pastry dough and fresh fruit

Berry Blast Cheesecake Bars

Looking for a dessert to feed a large crowd? These bars are perfect! The recipe makes 16 servings.

In addition to the Berry Blast Cheese Ball Mix, you will need to add Absolutely Almond Pound Cake to your cart.
