FedEx and UPS both paid a visit....

I love getting deliveries...especially when FedEx and UPS visit on the same day! I took up a Thirty-One catalog party where I was my own hostess. Simply by word of mouth, I took up my party and earned a lot of free products and was able to buy the Lunch Break Thermal for just $5.00. As a result, because I am a consultant, I earned Level 2 of the Ready, Set, Sell incentive that Thirty-One offered consultants in August. Here is everything I got absolutely FREE...and it all arrived on the same day. I was thrilled. 

For having the party, I earned the Organizing Utility Tote in Citrus Medallion. We are going to the beach next month and this is going to be my beach bag to tote my stuff to the beach for the day.


I always take peanut butter & crackers and a little container of dill pickles with me. It helps my tummy if I get too hot or need a snack. I got the medium thermal to put them in to keep them from getting too hot in the sun. 

This is a Pocket-a-Tote which goes through the grommets on my Utility Tote above to create an interior pocket for things like my room key, my watch, etc.

Of course I had to get the coordinating sunglasses case to keep my sunglasses in. I have reader sunglasses for while I'm sitting reading at the beach and regular sunglasses for when I want to take a walk or just sit and enjoy watching the ocean.

I think this made a very neat set for my trip. I can't wait to use it. And the material of these totes are the type that sand will wipe off of with a damp cloth.

In addition, I earned this Thermal Lunch Tote. I plan on putting a drink and some snacks in this to put in the car for our drive to Florida for our vacation.

I already have the Essential Tote and Mini Zipper Pouch to go with it. I earned those two earlier in July when I had another catalog party, so they were free as well. This is what I will keep up front with me. I carry my plastic canvas project, my book, camera, and snacks in this bag and keep change in the zipper pouch for when we stop at rest stops. These three make a nice set. 

Now, because I had such a good order in August, I met the requirements to earn level 2 of the incentive. I got free fall catalogs and mini catalogs as well as some sample swatches of new fabrics for part of the incentive. Here is the rest of what I earned in the incentive.

This was the whole reason I wanted to have the party in the first place, I wanted to earn the new Mini Cindy. It is an adorable purse for fall and winter that is fashioned after the bigger version, the Cindy Tote. I am absolutely in love with this and can't wait for cool weather to start carrying it. I love the Black Houndstooth pattern.

The next item I earned is the On a Stroll back in the new Black Chevron pattern, which I have fallen in love with. This bag is awesome for mom's with the big fish net pocket, one zipper pocket and two small fish net pockets. It can also be used on a walker. Upon checking it out though, I am going to hang it on a couple of hooks in my craft closet and keep some of my craft supplies in it. The two hooks will unhook and lock around the headrest in a car to carry items in your backseat as well for children or travel.

I also got the new Flat Iron Case. This is a big case and I really like it but I don't use a flat iron or a curling iron for that matter. I was taxing my brain to decide what to use it for. It has a divider in the middle so on one side I am store my several pairs of good scissors and the other side will hold my knitting needles and crochet hooks. Another perfect way to help organize my craft room.

This is the True Beauty Bag in Paisley Day. It has pockets on the outside and inside along with loops to hold your shampoo and conditioner so they don't spill. I love this bag. 

It comes as a set with this makeup case in Navy Lotsa Dots.

I love the way the makeup case folds out and has two interior zipper pockets and room for makeup brushes.

This little Baubles and  Bracelets Case is just too adorable to keep your jewelry in, especially when you travel. 

It comes with two snap sections that can hold your rings or earrings and three little pouches to hold your individual necklaces so they don't get tangled.

I also got something they call a badge buddy. A lot of the Thirty-One purses have a D ring inside them. I plan on using this for my hotel room key so I can clip it inside my purse and not have to dig for it when I get back to the room. 

But what surprised me the most was how much I fell in love with this new Cross Town Wristlet. I thought is was cute and I was looking forward to getting it so I could check it out. But I am amazed at how excited I am about owning one of the these. This thing is fabulous. 

It comes with an adjustable strap so you can wear it over your shoulder or as a cross body. It has two individual zipper pockets that are very roomy, my cell phone even fits in one of them.

It opens up to hold your ID and cards and I love the little strip that snaps down over your cards so they don't fall out when you open the wallet.

And what makes it even more special is the fact that the strap can be removed with a click of the lobster claws on both sides. Notice the dark blue little square on the left hand side in the center?

You just slide that out and close the wallet back up.....

...and you have an adorable wristlet. I am in love. Of everything I got, I think this excites me the most. 

That is all my freebies. I can't believe I got all that and it didn't cost me a penny. The only thing I bought was the Lunch Break Thermal in the Hoo's Happy pattern. This was on special for $5.00 for Hostesses so I got it.

So just for making some Facebook contact and phone calls with a few of my friends, I ended up with over $300 worth of FREE products and the only thing I am out of pocket is $5 bucks. Now you see why I love Thirty-One.
