Thirty-One Days 'Til Christmas- Part 3!

This is the final chapter of the Thirty-One days 'til Christmas. Our Christmas shopping deadline is quickly approaching. Friday, December 5th is the final day to order personalized items and be guaranteed to have them in time for Christmas. So with that said, here are the last of the 31 gift items from Thirty-One...
  • 21. The Fabric Gift Tags hold gift cards perfectly. Buy a couple and hang them on the tree.
  • 22. You can put anything in a the All in One Organizer...fill it with CD's, DVD's or videos games for your teen, all kinds of toys for the little ones or with maps and a travel mug for Dad to put in his car.
  • 23. The Storage Tote is a great size for you to take shopping with you all year long. Have it personalized with "Shopping Bag" to reuse when you shop. It's vinyl lined so you can even put your milk jugs inside.
  • 24. Someone on your list love going to the beach? You can get them the Beach Tote with the matching, vinyl lined Zipper Pouch to keep their wet bathing suit. It's hard to imagine a warm beach day as I sit here in cold NH but I know they will be back again.
  • 25. Looking for a bag for just about anything? The Medium Sassy Sac and Small Sassy Sac fit that description. They now have a zipper closure to keep all those important things inside. You can have it personalized with "Grammy", "Mom's Stuff" or simply add your initials. Plus, until December 31, you can order them with the single letter appliques with polka dots, hot pink or even rhinestones. Click here to see the flyer.
  • 26. Don't you deserve something for yourself? Join Thirty-One in the new year to help pay for all those holiday bills that are about to come it. If you join before the end of the year, you only need to pay $33 now. At 30 days you will pay another $33 and at 60 days you will pay the final $33. However, you can earn the final 2 payments of $33 before you need to pay. It's a great deal and now is such an exciting time to be part of a wonderful company. Click here to see more details about becoming a consultant and then email me at for more information.
  • 27. Kids need bags too and Thirty-One has a great variety from them too. There's the Kid's Backpack, the Cinch Sac and the very popular Kid's Skirt Purse. All of them can be personalized however, if you want it in time for Christmas, the deadline is December 5th.
  • 28. If you have kids in college, a great bag for them to bring their stuff home on the weekends is either the Duffle Handbag or, if they have a lot of stuff, the Large Travel Duffle. That way they can fit their laundry too.
  • 29. One of my most popular selling item is the Small Magazine Basket. It's a unique basket that looks good in everyone's home. Fill with books, a blanket and some goodies and you have a wonderful gift anyone would love.
  • 30. (Whew, almost done.) And of course what Christmas is complete without a Christmas Stocking. Our Sock Stockings can be changed year to year with a variety of different "socks". It's just like the skirt purse where you buy the stocking in either black or white and get the covering, or the sock, for free. The sock can be personalized.
  • 31. And when all else fails and you just don't know what to get, order a Thirty-One gift certificate! That way even the pickiest of people can find exactly what they love.
That's 31 ideas for gifts from Thirty-One. Happy Shopping!!!

Thirty-One Days 'Til Christmas- Part 2

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, the clock is really ticking to get your holiday shopping started and finished. To help, here is part 2 of my 31 gift giving ideas from Thirty-One....

  • 11. If you need a gift for a Secret Santa or Yankee Swap, you can get the Thong Slippers or the Pedicure Slippers. They are so soft and comfortable that it's a safe gift that everyone can enjoy.
  • 12. Another gift for swaps is a Soy Candle. There really aren't too many people out there who don't enjoy candles. It's also a great gift for your kid's teacher, your hair dresser, your neighbor or anyone and everyone that you want wish a Merry Christmas.
  • 13. The Hanging Cosmetic Organizer would be helpful to all those relatives that need to travel over the holidays. Or if you know someone who is planning on going on a big trip this year, this is also perfect. Fill is with some travel size toiletries, and you have a very handy and thoughtful gift.
  • 14. Are you putting together gift baskets of baked goods to give friends this year? Instead of putting it all in a basket, make it extra special and put it in a personalized Thermal Tote.
  • 15. Everyone is looking for something to stuff in the stockings other than candy. A few nice Thirty-One items you can add are the Luggage Tag , Key Fob, Soy Accents, ID/Coin Purse or a Soft Wallet.... and then add the candy too.
  • 16. The Small Bow Purse is one of my favorite purses as well as one of my best sellers. I have a friend who has this purse in Black Floral (pictured on the right) and she called me to say she gets compliments on it many times everyday. If you have someone on your list that would love an adorable new purse, I would highly recommend this!
  • 17. How about a gift for yourself that is free? Host a Thirty-One party in the new year and earn lots of free products just for inviting your friends to your home. It's lots of fun and a great way to catch up with friends.
  • 18. Save some time on wrapping all your gifts and put them in a personalized Santa Sack. This is a special gift that can be used year after year.
  • 19. Personalized Stationary is a gift that is perfect for almost anyone. You can personalize it with their name, initials or "Thank you from...". The options are endless. The notecards are available in 13 different styles. Order some for your co-workers or friends.
  • 20. Do your kids or grandkids like to help in the kitchen? Get them their own personalized Kids Apron with Chef Hat. My daughter loves helping me bake so I orders hers to say "Chef Mary". I know she's going to love it.
To be continued again....


Welcome Jessica!

Congratulations and welcome to Jessica to Thirty-One. It has been a busy month with lots of new people joining the company and our team. Jessica wasted no time to join in too! I'm so happy to have you part of our team. Thirty-One is lucky to have you as one of their newest consultants!

  6. A personalized Spa Robe is perfect for the man in your life. This robe is so soft and warm that they will love it.
  7. Or if your guy loves to cook or BBQ, the Adult Apron with "Grill Master" or "Chef Dad" (you use your imagination) is a great option.
  8. Super Soft Blanket is just what it says...super soft. This is a gift anyone and everyone will love. You can personalize it with a last name, first name or even the name of someone's boat. Give it in one of our baskets. How perfect.
  9. How about a free trip to Disney World? Well, it's not something Thirty-One sells but you can earn one free as a Consultant as part of our Dream Rewards Incentive.
  10. The Skirt Purse for the bag lover on your list. When you buy the skirt purse, you pick a free skirt. If you are feeling even more generous, get 2 or more skirts.

Christmas Items Available

Thirty-One Christmas items have been available since October 1. Now's the time order your holiday items so that you have time to enjoy them before Christmas has come and gone. Some of the products in the Thirty-One Holiday line are...
  • Holiday Sock Stockings- This is a new twist on the traditional Christmas stocking. Similar to our Skirt Purse, the Sock Stocking can take on different looks just by changing the detachable stocking sock. You select white or black fur stocking and then choose from 6 different sock styles and personalize it your way (for free).
  • Adult Half Apron in Holiday Ornament design- Buy one for yourself to get you in the holiday spirit when baking Christmas cookies or buy one for the host of a holiday gathering as a thank you gift. Instead of personalizing it with a name (which is always a good choice), you could write "Ho Ho Ho" or "Santa's Helper". Be creative and have fun!
  • Fabric Gift Tag also in Holiday Ornament design- It's a small item that can make a great statement. You can attach it to a gift, use it as a gift by putting a gift card inside or hang it on a bottle of wine.
  • Santa Sack- This roomy bag is great for just about anything. One family I know uses the Santa Sack instead of wrapping any presents. Each child has one with their name on it. Santa comes Christmas Eve and just fills their Santa Sack. That really saves Santa a lot on wrapper paper time and expense.. not to mention that there is no clean up. I love that idea!

Tuesday, October 21, 2008

Welcome Amy & Steve S!!!

A warm Thirty-One welcome to Amy & Steve S. from North Carolina. This husband and wife team signed up with Thirty-One last week and have started out with a bang. Before their kit even arrived, they helped sign up 2 other women to Thirty-One! They realized early on what a great company Thirty-One is and wanted to share it right away.

Welcome! I'm so glad you are part of our team.

The Julie Tote...Correction

My apologies but I miss understood the new look of the Julie Tote. The bag is NOT reversible. However, they've made 4 new looks because they've turned them inside out with the lining is now on the outside! Once the bag is personalized, you can not flip it back and forth because the back of the embroidery will show. I'm very sorry for my mistake and I have deleted the original post to avoid confusion.

Curious about how many Thirty-One Consultants are in your state? Click here for a map of the US with the number of consultants listed on each state. (This map is current as of August 19, 2008)

The state with the highest number is Alabama with 399 consultants which is followed by North Caroline with 285. There are 2 states with NO consultants which are Idaho and North Dakota. I live in New Hampshire and there are only 3 of us in the far!

Let's get those numbers up. Even in Alabama, there is still lots of room for more Thirty-One Consultants. So if you are thinking about becoming a Consultant and would like more information, email me at or call me at 603-232-5655. There is always room for more great women!!!

(Note: The map has been updated to reflect the number as of September 15.)

Adult Half Apron

So far, one of the most popular items in the new Fall/Winter Thirty-One catalog is the Adult Half Apron. The brown and white polka dot style (pictured to the left) is so cute and stylish especially with pink monogramming. Many people have purchased this as a gift for a bridal shower or Christmas. This apron is also available in black and white dots.

Ready for School?

The start of school is right around the corner. I just received my daughter's welcome packet for preschool in the mail yesterday. She's so excited...and so am I.

Thirty-One has lots of great products to help you child start off the new school year right whether it be for Preschool or College. Here are some ideas...
  • The best backpack for the younger kids are the Kids Backpack. It comes in 2 styles, Bubble Pop and Camo. You can have it personalized with their name, initials, a single letter or the name of their school.
  • For the older kids, there are a couple options... the Adult Backpack or the Nylon Backpack. The Adult Backpack is available in Brown Damask or Black Bubble Quilt. It's very cute, soft and stylish but still holds tons of stuff. The other option is the Nylon Backpack. This is a very sturdy backpack which can fit a ton of books and/or a laptop! It is available in black, blue or pink.
  • It you child is heading off to college, the Large Travel Duffle in Brown Woven print is the perfect gift. It's a great size bag to put tons of clothes in for those trips back home to do laundry or just a visit.
All of the above products, as well as many throughout the Thirty-One catalog, can be personalized for free. To see more pictures, check out my website at

Small Bow Purse

My favorite item in the new Fall/Winter Thirty-One catalog is the Small Bow Purse. It comes in either Brown Damask or Burgundy Stripe. It's the perfect size for me. It's 11.5"L x 9"H with 8" handles. I just love the Burgundy Stripe (pictured to the left). It was the first item in the new catalog to catch my eye.

The Small Bow Purse is only $32 and personalization is free.

Soy Accents

Part of the Candle Collection of Thirty-One are the Soy Accents. Soy accents are soy wax shavings that, when melted on a melter, release their scent into the air. Thirty-One does sell the melters but the Soy Accents can be used in any melter or tart warmer. Soy is made of natural soybeans and uses no petroleum or pesticides. Soy is a renewable, sustainable resource.

Another benefit of the Soy Accent is that you can blend different scents to create your own custom recipe!

The Soy Accents only cost $4.50 each. They are available in 20 different scents from Banana Nut Bread and Caramel Cappuccino to Clean and Dream.
