Welcome to My May Newsletter!

Who loves May?  Time to put those heavy sweatshirts and coats away and enjoy the outdoor weather.

We have some great stuff for all of you this month.  Interested in earning free product?  Consider hosting an Facebook Pop-Up OR invite folks to join my Scroll Party.  The Scroll Party is right here on my website.  Top prize special for May is an Outdoor Griddle Kit!   

The Pop-Up and Scroll Party Themes for May are Glow It  Up and Sizzle On!

You also could host a tasting event!

Note: Due to some family issues and my TS Incentive trip to Disney, I was not able to do my first scroll party.  I plan to do one on May 15th right here on my website.

Our transition to a 3rd party shipper has come with some issues we are working through.  Good news is that orders appear to be shipping in 2 days now.  We were using FedEx, but will be going back to UPS early this month, if not May 1st.  Very important:  if you receive an order that has issues, please take pictures of the box, wrapping and product so I can take care of your issue.  Also let me know if anything is missing. 

Check out everything in my newsletter and come back a few times during the month to catch anything that happens mid-month!  Be sure to let me know you came so you are entered to win free samples.

Website Visit Winners

We had a little over 85 visits to my website ( in April.

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

Although we had over 85 visits, I only know of 15 people who visited, a few had multiple visits so they are entered multiple times.  The purpose of this is to draw folks to my website, so I drew 3 winners from those I know visited.  We have 2 repeats and a new visitor

The winners are:

  • Ellie Blackwell
  • Dawn Beck
  • Amy Pope

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!
