Thirty-One National Conference

I'm back from Thirty-One Gifts' National Conference in Orlando. What a blast! I met so many wonderful women that inspired me so much. It's amazing on how successful many of them are in such a short amount of time. The company has grown 300% since last year. Amazing!

On top of a fun awards night, lots of free gifts and motivating classes, we all got to see the new Fall/Winter line. All I can say is WOW! If you've like all our catalogs in the past, you are certainly going to love this one. I don't want to spoil the fun for you when you see it for yourself. But I will give a few hints. There's a new size for the Thermal Tote, a great improvement on the skirt purse (but don't worry, you old skirts will still fit) and cute new patterns like Chocolate Blossom, Dot Dot and Doggie Bag.

Got you interested? Well, you don't need to wait too long to see the new catalog. A preview version of it will be released at the beginning of July. As soon as I can, I'll post it for you to see. You can start shopping from the new catalog starting August 1. That gives you plenty of time to shop from the current Spring/Summer catalog. But don't wait too long. Some items are already starting to retire. If you have a favorite that you must have, buy it now before it's gone. Shop my website at

Thirty-One National Confence in Disney.. tomorrow!

I can not wait. The Thirty-One National Conference is tomorrow and, here's the icing on the cake, it's a Disney World in Florida! I'm so excited. I'm packing my bags today and flight leaves first thing in the morning. Yay!

I'm most excited to meet all my Thirty-One friends that I have been in touch with for so long. This is the first time I'll meet my Director Gretchen in person. We talk almost every week but have never met. So excited. I'll also be meeting Sandy who is on my team and from California. She is seriously one of the sweetest people in the world. I can't wait!!!! Did I mention that I'm excited?

But there's still so much more to do. I'll also be getting lots of great training from the wonderful Thirty-One team. We will have a chance sneak preview the Fall/Winter line. And at Awards Night, I'll be walking across stage and meeting Cindy Monroe, President of Thirty-One because of my promotion to Director. All this packed into 3 days!

Have a great week. I'll post more when I get back.

Summer Fun with Thirty-One

The official start of summer is only a few days away. Be sure to celebrate it every day with Thirty-One Gifts. Here are a few products that you will use all summer long...
  • Zipper Pouch- Have it monogrammed with "Summer Fun". Inside you will keep your sunscreen and your bug spray. Keep it in your car or in your bag to always have it on hand when you need it. Because it's vinyl lined, no worries about leaks.
  • Pleated Top Beach Tote- I think this one is pretty obvious but a necessity when going to the beach. It's large size will fit all that you need including a few towels. The aqua polka dots or multi dot patterns are just too cute. You'll definitely be the most fashionable on the sand.
  • Mesh Zipper Pouch- Very helpful for storing your keys, wallet and cell phone. The mesh fabric will easily allow you to just shake the sand right out.
  • Personality Bucket- When you are outside having a BBQ with friends, line the bucket with plastic, fill with ice and keep your drinks cool. These buckets are surprising large. Get one with "Cheers" and enjoy!
These are just a few suggestions on how Thirty-One can be used all summer long. Before you know it, the leaves will be falling and we'll be talking about holiday gifts. So for now, enjoy every moment!!! Happy Summer!

Messenger Bag with it's Changable Flaps

Thirty-One Gifts has done it again with it's "Zip Flap" Messenger Bag. It's similar to the popular skirt purse because with the Messenger Bag you can change it's look without changing the bag.

Here's how it works... you purchase either the black or brown bag and choose one "zip flap". This zip flap can be changed easily. All you need to do is, as the name says, zip the flap. Want to change your look? Just unzip the flap and zip on a new one. It's really that easy.

The Zip Flap Messenger Bag can be found in the new "Direction" catalog for teens (but the bag isn't JUST for teens). The Flap can be personalized and is available in many great new colors including Houndstooth, Multi Dot, Blue/Green Medallion, Girl Paisley Medallion, Blue/Green Vertical Dot, Pink Vertical Dot, Blue/Green Wide Stripe, Pink/Orange Wide Stripe and Black Quilting.

The Zip Flap Messenger Bag is located on page 5 of the Direction catalog. It only costs $38 for the bag with one flap. Additional Flaps can be purchased for $10 each. Buy it now at


Welcome Kelly T.

A huge Thirty-One Gifts welcome to Kelly T from NC. Kelly joined my team a week ago. She is so excited to get started and I'm excited for her. Thirty-One is such a great company with endless possibilities. Now's the hard part, waiting for the kit to arrive. It usually comes within a week so the waiting shouldn't be too long.

I'm so happy she joined us. Welcome!!!

I am so proud of them and all that they've accomplished in such a short time. Way to go!!!
