Cheerful Noise

Moms, you know what cheerful noise is. It's that "vroom vroom" sound of your little son driving his trucks along the back of the sofa. Or it's the sweet melody being hummed by your tutu donning daughter as she twirls around the room. And surely it's the laughter of your children as they play together nearby. All of these sounds are music to a mother's ears.

I'm so grateful that I have the opportunity to spend most of my time at home and to hear all of these sounds and experience all that goes along with being a Mom. But sometimes it's difficult to juggle doing "mommy stuff" along with my job and scrapbook business. This is why I'm so excited to have found Cheerful Noise.

I met a lovely lady recently, Paula Fellingham. I immediately admired her confidence and overall passion for life. So when she told me about this opportunity, I was intrigued. She told me of this concept where stay-at-home moms, working moms and working-at-home-moms discover solutions that work and make money raising their children. What? Finally get a paycheck for all the hours I put in as a Mom? Get out of here!

So, here's how it works. Every month, you receive a kit. Inside you'll receive heart-lifting, family-strengthening materials like a book, CD, a decorative vinyl piece for your wall, inspirational quotes, online movies and articles, parenting tips, etc. You'll also receive a Cheerful Noise Discount Card that will allow you to save money at various retailers. (And you KNOW how frugal I am, so that is a definite perk.) So far, I love it. I'm always scouting out material to read or help motivate me and teach me new things. And here it all is-coming to me directly for about 40 dollars a month, plus shipping. I know that will be money well-spent.

Now, here's my favorite part. For every woman you connect to Cheerful Noise you'll receive $20 per month as long as she's a member. This can be an easy way to help your friends and neighbors better themselves and make some money at the same time. Hot dog.

The company will launch on December 1st, but Early Bird Membership begins on November 19th. You can bet I'll be there. Check out the website. I'm super excited and looking forward to getting my first packet of great stuff. If you're interested in learning more, contact me. I'll keep you updated on how it goes.

I'd love to see you join me this Thursday from 6-8pm at my home for a scrapbook open house. I'll have all my premade albums that you love available for purchase. There will also be some lovely handbags made by my mom and darling baby headbands from my sister.

It will be a lot of fun, so be sure to come! If you don't know where I live, contact me and I'll give you the address and directions.

My Halloween Hero

Jordan had fun trick or treating-but what kid doesn't? He was only up for going to a few houses, but that was more than enough for us! After the excursion, he dug through his treasure to find the chocolate sucker he wanted.

After eating it, this is what his darling face looked like.
