Summer, School, Silly Season and the Fantastic Plastic

Hey Guys,

It's been some time since I posted so I thought I would give you a quick update and let you know I am still alive. It's been the most crazy couple of months, so here is a quick run down.

I bought a fireplace about a month ago, couldn't wait to decorate the tree and hang stockings....been so busy the only thing that has changed in this picture is the vase of flowers. Yeah the tree is still not decorated, mantle not done and stockings not yet hung.

My Elizabeth graduated primary school last night, I am so proud of her and she is very excited to be starting high school next year. I can't believe she is going to high school it makes me feel like she's growing up too quickly.

We've done some fun end of year activities with these two little rug rats. Max was hilarious, after this picture he tried to unwrap the faux presents, yep we were those parents, the ones dragging their kid off the tree. Honestly though, it is kind of funny.

Why am I so busy, because of this, for those who don't know I am selling Tupperware, I started back in October and it's just gone gang busters. I seem to be constantly out of the house. I've found it to be the best fun I have ever had while making money and it just keeps growing. Which for me is a good thing. I want to redo my floors and have that extra pocket money to do all the things I have wanted to do in the house that have just been out of reach.

However, it has left me with exactly zero crafting time, between my parties and the housework I haven't done a single thing. I've hardly read any blogs and done absolutely nothing on my own, so I have decided to take a Summer holiday. The boys have already finished for the year and Elizabeth finishes at the end of the week and come February I hope to have a better idea of how I am going to manage my time.

I'll see you all after Christmas, so have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Thanks for reading,

Mel xo

  5. So happy for you Mel! And glad that you've taken the time to update us on your wonderful activities! Somehow I'm thinking how you can combine the two of selling Tupperware parties and crafting - ha! In any event, do have a wonderful Christmas and vacation with the family!!! See you in the new year!!!!

  6. Decorate that tree Mel!!!! LOL! Congrats to Elizabeth! I'm so glad you are still loving being the Tupperware Queen and glad it's going to fund some big projects that I hope you'll post about when you have time! Love the pic of the little ones too and funny about the faux presents!

  7. Way to go Mel. Glad to hear that your business has taken off and that you LOVE it! Merry Christmas to all of you and I hope you have a wonderful summer! XOXO

  8. BTW Congratulations to your daughter!! Way to go Elizabeth. Also the little ones look like they are having a good time. Mine would have been right under the tree with yours! Cheers.

  9. What an exciting time for you and your family. You'll succeed with Tupperware because you have the personality for sales. You are likable and people trust you. Continued success there! How proud you must be of Elizabeth!

    Now...go do some decorating :)

  10. Congrats to Elizabeth and on the successful Tupperware biz! Sounds like you are way busy. Have a great Christmas, and I hope to see you back here soon. :)

  11. Yay Mel!! I'm so glad that you found a way to make some extra money, and that you enjoy it too is sooo great. Good for you! The kids look so adorable under the tree, and big congrats to Elizabeth. That is a milestone for sure. Have a wonderful Christmas Mel. Now get that tree decorated. It'll look so pretty with your fireplace. :)

  12. You both must be so proud of Elizabeth. Congratulations to her. Now she is officially a big girl with a big girl room. I've done very little Christmas decorating, myself. Trying to go simple. I'm so excited for you and your Tupperware business, Mel. Have fun and enjoy both your new venture and the summer. Hugs, Amy
