Whoa! March 28th! A whole week has gone by!
Well, I'm sorry that a whole week has gone by since I last posted. What was I thinking- I went into a blogger coma.... brain farts, forgetfulness, and writer's block. I kinda still have a blogger coma. I finally figured out how to get my Flickr account to link to my site as you can see above. Also, I have added a direct link to my photo stream so that you can see all the free stuff, samples, products, and coupons I have so far received and verified as 100% free, or free with small postage fee (you'll see which ones have the fee by the descriptions). Understand that you get a better quality and quantity of sample typically when you splurge on the small postage fee. Again, something I'll show you when they come in. In other notes. We were not selected for any of the House-Party parties. I believe that this rejection dates back to the 2008 incident. We were selected to host a Clorox Greenworks Party. It was supposed to be awesome. Coupons for full size products to test, coupons for the guest, piggy tail light bulb, and so much more cool green products and gifts for guest and host. The package never arrived. The day of the party came and went. Finally we received our package- excited I couldn't wait to tear into it and reschedule our party. I opened it and there it was...... an envelope with some seed packets for my guests. What a disappointment and joke! How was I supposed to host a "Green party" with nothing, but a bunch of seed packets. No products, no product information, no coupons, no goody bags for my guests. Nothing. I felt completely let down and angry. I had been talking about the party for months with my friends, co workers, family, even my boss was interested in coming. I gave the seed packets to my son's class for a garden project. I guess that wasn't allowed- because I HAVE NEVER BEEN SELECTED AS A HOST AGAIN. True story-very sad. I did however find a new panel to join- SHESPEAKS. Also, my boys and I have been selected to try out some new products and we cannot wait to try them, share them, and invite our friends to try them and spread the word. So balance has been restored to my product trying world. Speaking of we should be getting our package in the next 2 weeks. I cannot wait to see what we're getting- we know that it is some Hormel Kid's Completes Meals- we just don't know how many or what kind. We are going to take pictures when it comes in. Also, very excited to see what comes in our mailbox this week and to share it with everyone! New on blog- we now officially have our very own forum-discussion boards-w/e you want to call them. They are up, running, and ready for business. Link is located on the right side of the blog. Thanks guys- until next time- have fun and do something exciting!
