Focus Friday

    Another little 'something new' for me to try... today I'd like to focus on the CONTINUED GROWTH of Youngevity, as it acquires more and more companies, allowing us to easily find, buy, and use over 2,500 products!
     I was told earlier this month that Youngevity (Ygy) had already acquired 7 companies this calendar year.  Yesterday it was announced that yet another company has been added.  Mialisia, another jewelry company, will soon be part of my store!
     I've been doing some financial research on Ygy, and it is growing like WILDFIRE. Last year it had a growth of 48% , while many others had negative growth.  The reports I read stated that it grew from $86 Million to $134 Million last year alone!
     So... that is yet another reason why I am 'investing' in my family, expanding my business with "Anthology by Lisa Bearnson".  I originally signed up as a distributor because I LOVE what Lisa has done in the past, and I TRUST her judgement.  During her May 2nd business gathering, (link listed below) she stated that she had been approached by SEVERAL companies over the years, asking her to put her name on a product, but they never 'felt right'..... until she met with the people from Youngevity, listened to their philosophy, and realized that she could help her own family and friends reach health and financial goals through this business relationship.
   Here are a few links that I have been researching and wanted to share with my family and friends, to help them realize the OPPORTUNITIES available for us as distributors of Youngevity, Anthology and so many other brands and products.  
             This is a (non-professional) version of the business opportunity presentation that Lisa and others presented on NSD (National Scrapbooking Day), May 2nd.  The first few minutes are vital, as she shares WHY she finally put her name on a product.  Then, if you choose, you can skip to approximately 1 hour 10 minutes, where JERRY (Millionaire business man) who now not only takes the 90ForLife supplements that I take but, along with his wife, has had amazing results.  He is now also a distributor and INVESTOR in the company.  After researching the company, he says it's a 'SURE THING'.  
      If Youngevity is good enough for Lisa Bearnson AND a millionaire business man, it's good enough for me!  And I KNOW that the products are already helping me with less daily pain.
     PLEASE, family and friends, seriously look into this and contact me so I can help YOU succeed and be healthier as well.

TBT... some earlier kits presented by Lisa Bearnson

     This is one of my first attempts at a TBT (Throw Back Thursday) post.  And yes, I'm still learning cyber abbreviations lol.  I thought that I would share some of my previous layouts that I created utilizing kits that Lisa Bearnson presented on HSN over the past couple of years.
      I love how this black and white layout works so well with most of the colors in these two pages, especially Dakota's thick, beautiful black, gray and white coat, as well as some of the winter wear and sleds used during the sledding part!  On the left page and the lower right page,  I dry embossed some swirls/flourishes to help carry out the snowy weather theme.


       The top of these two photos is the page kit as it came.  I've been mixing and matching a lot over the past several years.  Above,  I replaced the light blue with darker blue cardstock as the base, to match some of the colors in my photos, specifically the birthday boy's winter coat... I also left out the striped borders as well. 

     This layout is somewhat a mirror/upside down reflection of the suggested layout.  The 3 photo frames are on my lower right page, theirs are on the upper left, and so on.  Again, the colors of this layout kit went well with the photos, as we had a Star Wars themed party this year!    
     The 3 layouts above documented the long and fun packed day of Wesley's sledding birthday party.  Yes, Dakota enjoyed it as well!

      When I saw the colors in this kit, along with the layout suggested, I knew it would work really well these photos!  Again, the black, gray and white draw attention to Dakota's coat, but Wesley wears a LOT of blue, which until this past year, was his favorite color.  In this case, he was wearing black, gray and red, but his mini dirt bike is blue...  I love to scrap not only by theme, but by color! 
     I love to document how Wesley & I (and yes, Dakota too) spend our summers together.  On weekends, Wesley has a lot of what I used to call "Daddy dates", and now refer to as "Guy time".  Michael works a lot of hours, especially spring through summer, including 5-6 hours on Saturdays, because it is his busy season at work.  Once he gets home on Saturday, if the weather is right, they usually take off to the State Park or other local spot for MAJOR bike rides (which I can't do lol), fly kites next to Lake Michigan, etc.  Therefore, I have several "me and my dad" and "me and my mom" mini albums.  These 12" pages will have to go into a different album.

      You will see bits and pieces of this 3 Birds "All About Fall" kit in the 2 page layout below, again mixed with another Top Pages kit!  Both kits even have chipboard.

     These are some of the pages that I completed or started during one of our local Crop For A Cure, a 12 hour crop that we have twice a year in one of our local churches.  I apologize for the glare on some of the photos above.   Hurrying to get things photographed while trying to catch up on household chores is not a good thing lol.

      This kit ended up being used on TWO different layouts already!  Immediately below you will see a two page spread that I tried to complete, covering two different days and topics, because of the colors. Ultimately, the mint green still called out to be only used on the ice cream layout because of my mint chocolate chip blizzard, and the pink/purple ended up on the separate layout about my studio pellet stove.

      I ended up converting my photos to b/w because of Wesley's sweater, but still wanted to use the mint embellishments.  I NEEDED (lol) to include that adorable photo of Dakota enjoying our trip to Dairy Queen, therefore it became part of a second page of that layout. 

          Wow, those covered a fair amount of time, both in the events, and the time period over which they were scrapped.  I think I may be doing this on a regular basis.  Have a wonderful TBT!

My new venture with Anthology by Lisa Bearnson, and Youngevity products.


     With one local event on the records, and a busy summer ahead with ( a surprisingly EARLY Memorial Weekend this weekend, our son's cub scout campout next weekend, the end of the school year with all it's activities, graduations, etc.,   I will be trying to fit in progress on my little home based business.
     Merging and/or expanding fb pages, updating my blog, contacting friends and family as well as the public in order to tell them of the wonderful opportunites with Anthology, as well as the Health and Wellness benefits of the 90ForLife products that we are now utilizing, wow... it's a bit overwhelming.  Thankfully, there are SO many people in the Anthology/Youngevity FAMILY, yes, it feels like family, who WANT to HELP us succeed with this venture and transformation!!!
     Speaking of transformations, I have also signed up for the Healthy Body Challenge, and hope to lose 20 pounds, and rebuild some of the muscle that I have lost from no longer wading upstream for hours a day while streamshocking for Salmon and Trout, or setting and lifting nets every day.  Those nets were loaded with the wonderful bluegill, pumpkinseed, perch, large and smallmouth bass, dog fish, etc that we are so blessed with as part of our natural resources here in Michigan, which I was BLESSED with helping to manage for over 10 years.... How I miss my job with Fisheries Division. 
     But as people say, one door closes (my former relationship with a beloved scrapbooking and paper crafting manufacturer) and another one opens.... the new relationship with Anthology by Lisa Bearnson and Youngevity's family of products.
    Okay, am I getting a bit too sentimental?  Oh well, that's me.  What can I say?  I'm a mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, and SCRAPBOOKER.

I'm part of Team LISA, ANTHOLOGY & Youngevity!

     Lisa Bearnson has teamed with Youngevity, the 'Amazon of Direct Sales', and for the first time, is adding her name to a line of scrapbooking products!  This was in the works for over a year, and we are expecting to have the product line launch the first week of August. 
     My gal pal, Chasity Sivanik, formerly with 3 Birds, was my referral, and Lisa's son Kade Bearnson is our upline!  I was able to talk to Kade to sign up as a distributor, and LISA CALLED ME (twice... I was half asleep the first night lol) to welcome me to the team!

     This past Saturday was my first public event as a new distributor for Anthology and Youngevity, during the 12 hour Crop For A Cure in my home town.  It was a great day, as always, with a lot of scrapbooking, stamping, and socializing going on all day!

     If you know anyone who would like to benefit from the Health & Wellness Products, such as the 90ForLife supplements that my family is now taking daily (I have already found some relief of my daily Fibromyalgia pain in my shoulders and neck), scrapbooking and memory keeping products, along with over 2,000 other products offered by Youngevity, please contact me at:
             or on my Anthology fb page:
