My New Obsession!

A couple weeks ago a friend called and asked if I would be interested in hosting a Partylite party to help her out. I hummed and hawed and finally said yes, just to help her out. I had looked through the catalouge and there wasn't anything really great in there that I wanted, so I thought about cancelling. But I didn't so I planned and invited lots of people. I started flipping through the catalouge and finding things that I liked and wanted. The list was small at first, but it kept getting bigger and bigger each time I would look at the book. I started seeing stuff that I really liked.

So it came time for the party. I really did not have high hopes, I just hoped I would be able to sell $250 dollars worth of stuff so I could get a decent amout of stuff for free. Only 7 people showed up to the party, but it was fun and I had made a good snack. I wasn't sure how it would do. But with a few outside orders, I ended up getting $1100 in sales! I couldn't believe it! I was so excited. I got almost $400 of FREE stuff! I also got 4 half price items. I got my WHOLE list of stuff I wanted, and more. I ended up payed $250 out of my own pocket for the half price items and hostess specials, but I got almost $1000 worth of stuff for that much. YEAH. I have alot of Partylite stuff. I love it. I didn't really have any nice decorations for my house, and now I do. Plus I have always loved candles, I love having them burning, I love the way they light up a room, nothing compares. Now I have nice stuff to burn them in, rather than a plate or a childish holder. I actually have grown up stuff! I am sure there are better things I could have spent that money on, but I have NEVER bought anything like this for myself, so I thought why not this one time!

BUT! Now that I have all this stuff and I love Partylite so much and I still have a list of lots of stuff I would like to get, I am thinking of become a consultant. It is something I think would be really fun. It would be selling something I love. It would be making a little bit of extra money on the side. I just don't know if I have the time for it. Well, I don't really have the time for it right now, so I might start in Fall when life is more in order. Maybe it won't be by then, but I am thinking it will. LOL. We will see, I have to talk to Eric about it and see what he thinks. He is my sanity monitor, I trust his opinion.

I actually have somebody that said they will have a party from me if I become one, so that is just making me want to do it even more. I also thought nobody would want to host parties from me, but when I started thinking there was lots of people I could ask to have one, or that would want to have one!! So maybe.....
Wanna host a party from me?!?!?!
