#WeekendCoffeeShare- Sunday Septembe 24, 2017

Sorry to say I’ve been MIA for sometime (or so it seems anyway).  To be honest, I’m not entirely sure where I left you guys last in terms of what’s been going on.  I guess I could go back and look, couldn’t I….Ohhh woww,  has it really been a month…  So it seems I’ve already told you about my newest direct sales ventue – Jewelscent/Gemstra.   I’m probalby going to shoot myself in the foot and really show my ignorance here, but I’m not 100% sure of the details regarding jewelscent vs gemstra.  Best I can understand, Gemstra is the like the ‘umbrella’ company(??) underwhich Jewelscent is one of the things offered – something like that, I guess.  There is also things like Bungalow 21, Janice Collection, Measurable Difference, and Legacy Designs.  

If you’d like to check out my Gemstra Boutique, you can do so here.  I also have a Jewelscent Party going on here (this one is in support of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (www.firehero.org).  Eversince I was a little girl, I’ve always considered firefighters, rescue workers, police officers, and those in the military to be my heroes (though they often don’t see themselves as such and just consider they are doing their job). I hope you’ll check out my virtual party link, sign the guestbook, and perhaps consider ordering something for yourself (or as a gift) and help me give back to these wonderful people who do so much for us….  ok shameless sales plug over…  I am excited about opening my new jewelscent candle later.  

I just got this on Friday and, as you can see, I haven’t even opened it yet.  I’ll be opening it later and doing a live showing on my VIP group on facebook…  I’ll also share the video on my facebook page (Tena’s Jewelscent).

In other news (yes, there are other things going on in my life besides just Jewelscent and Mary Kay) I am super proud of my son for being named the webmaster for his troop. He was needing a position as part of earning his Life Rank (which he is currently working on) and this is a perfect thing for him to be doing.  Life rank is the final rank to be earned before  the scout starts to work on the final (coveted) Eagle Rank which, a while back, my son expressed a desire to earn.

Wishing you all a fabulous week ahead.  Hopefully I’ll be back next week and, who knows, maybe I’ll share a quick ring reveal.  Looking forward to hearing how things are going for you and what plans (exciting or not) you have in store.


#WeekendCoffeeShare – Sunday August 28, 2017

**Dang Auto correct.  I was trying to type August and it put in April for me (Didn’ realize till after I had posted).**

Good morning everyone.  I’m really not doing well with the coffee shares the past couple weeks, am I.  Last week I think I completely missed it all together and this week. I’m running behind.  Shoot, I imagine the linkup is probably closed by now 🙁

Ohhh my gosh, where are my manners…  Come on in and joint me.  We’re having Sprouts Farmers’s Market’s Super Dark coffee.  It’s actually my hubby’s coffee but I ran out of mine and didn’t want to grind more (call me lazy) so we’re having his.

So, one piece of big news for me….  You all know I do Mary Kay, right??  Well I just sign on to be a Jewelscent sales rep (??). I think that’s what it’s called.    Actually it’s now Gemstra.  If I’m getting my facts straight here, Gemstra is like the umbrella company (?) Something like that) that has partnered with several manufacturers(?)  – Jewelscent being one of them.  So now,  besides the jewelscent that most are familiar with there are other products available.  Been spending some time getting things set up for my new Gemstra business including a FB page – Tena’s Jewelscent, as well as my boutique –  www.gemstra.com/tenacarr  Been doing most of my work on the boutique on my tablet (which isn’t the easiest thing to do, LOL.  I also have a launch party going ton – Tena’s Launch Party.   And, of course, there’s still the Mary Kay stuff.  Like my FB Page – TenaCarrMKIBC,  ohhh and my personal website for Mary Kay (actually nothing for me to do there but make sure settings are what i want.  Mary Kay does the rest).

So what else can I tell you about?!?, because I’m pretty sure you don’t want to hear me going on about my businesses.  Heck, I imagine some of you are running away right now thinking that I’m gonna be one of those pushy types that never shuts up about her business.  I promise I’ll try not to be like that cuz that’s not who I am.  I’m not a gung-ho sales person who doesnt’ take no for an answer. 

Was on Facebook Live with Tucson News Now this morning.  So much sadness with Hurricane Harvey and the Riots in Douglas at the Corrections Facility (I guess it’s being called a public disturbance – ?? – something like that), as well as other pieces of sad news.  My thoughts and prayers are with those affected by Hurricane Harvey.  I don’t have a way to watch news so most of what I get is through FB and Twitter feeds (and yes I’m referring to legitimate feeds by news, police, government agencies, etc)…  From what I understand it went quickly from a Cat 1 to a Cat 3 or Cat 4 (Was thinking I saw Cat 4 but latest stuff I saw said something about Cat 3, so I’m not sure).  Also in my thoughts & prayers are the volunteers and First Responders going to the aid of those affected.

I guess that’s pretty much it.  I should up shut up and let you all get a word in edge-wise.  What’s been going on with you guys? How did last week go for you?  How was your weekend?  Any exciting plans for the week ahead?

Plans are to be back next week (hopefully on time, LOL) but hey you know that old saying – “Best laid plans of mice and men” (something like that).

OK, well, good day to you all and have a great week.  Catch you later.

#WeeklySmile – Wednesday August 16, 2017

Today our local police held another “Coffee with a Cop” event, which always makes me smile.  During this particular event there were a couple things that exceptionally made me smile…  One was a little girl that had given these 3 officers a tiny purple flower (which they had put on their uniforms):

Another was watching our Chief of Police kneeling down to talk to two little ones.

Then there was this little guy (who was hiding from me) who kept dive bombing me, the officers, and serveral others

And last of all (and totally unrelated to anything above)…  Since I a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant, I couldn’t resist putting this together….

What I Want to say when someone says, “But I don’t wear makeup”

That’s it for my smiles this week…  What have you found to smile about?  Even the little things.  Join Trent for hiw Weekly Smile challenge.

Remember to find something to smile about, even if it’s something small…The antics of a bird, the innocent kindness of a small child, a community event, or a funny meme

Share Your World – August 14, 2017

Been a while since I’ve done this…  Here goes.

When you leave a room, do you turn the lights off behind you or keep the lights on throughout your house most of the time?

Well, if I’m to be completely honest, I do have a tendency to sometmes get distracted and forget about turning off lights.  I’m often reminded by my husband about a light being left on.

What do you feel is the most enjoyable way to spend $500? 

I could go two directions here…  One would be purely selfish and only thinking of me – I’d either get clothes, or maybe some makeup (Mary Kay of course), or candles, or spend money getting stuff I want through Pampered Chef.  Perhaps a little of everything.  The second direction would lean towards thinking of others – I’d likely split the money between a couple good Fire and Police Foundation, or give to the Departments towards upgrading some of their stuff, or a bereavement fund for the families of firefighters & officers killed in the LOD.

Complete this sentence: My favorite thing to do on my cell phone is…

LOL – Guess I’d have to say doing stuff on FB and Twitter…. that and checking my emails and reading various blogposts (via email) as time allows.

What inspired you this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

Don’t know if it would be considered an inspiration but I am in awe of how much we collected at this last week’s Dispose-A-Med event (over 500 pounds).  It was insane and amazing to see the turn out.  I can only hope that the next one goes as well.

That concludes my answers to Cee’s Share Your World Questions for this week.  Hope you’ll join the fun….  Have a great week.
