Hogs and Kisses Bag Topper & Viva Las Vegas

So excited to share this fun little candy bag topper I made for Body to give his class mates next week!  He is loving them and also excited about signing them and handing them out to his teacher and friends! 
I've included the image below so you can just copy and paste it into a Word doc then size it however large or small you need it to be for your bags.  Then make sure to have your little person sign them before stapling them on. 
Be sure to trim them out by cutting just inside the gray line on the image.  Then, using an Xacto... carefully cut along the edge of the top of the piggy from one side of the hoof to the other.  Leaving a tiny white border like pictured.  Then it will pop up, fold down and be perfect for stapling to the tops of your candy bags.  Easy peasy! 
Here's the back so you can see that too!  Let me know how you like them or if you plan to use them!  I love them!  They are kinda fun!
Now off to get ready for my fabulous trip to
Las Vegas this weekend!!!
Not sure how many of you know this yet...
But I became a Promoter for a company called Le-Vel at the very end of October.  I've fallen in love with their THRIVE products and how much they are helping people. I've personally NEVER felt better and the ways this new position has impacted my life and my family brings me to tears quite frankly! 
Since I've started telling people about Thrive I have earned a new iPad mini, earned the company's $800/month luxury car bonus, earned a BIG Jawbone Jambox, earned over $1,000 of free product, earned this trip for two to Las Vegas AND earned thousands in cash already too!  I am not saying this to brag.... I PROMISE!  Just sharing what blessings this company has provided me and can YOU TOO!!!  If you or anyone you know is battling chronic pain issues, depression, anxiety, weightloss issues, mental clarity, lack of energy... and the list goes on.. then PLEASE get in touch with me! or message me on Facebook.  I am happy to send you a FREE 3-day sample of THRIVE.  Best thing I've ever taken or done!  PERIOD!!!  Have a great weekend y'all!! 
 Won't go a DAY without my THRIVE!!

What is Thrive?

Hey all!  I know it's been a few weeks since I've shared anything creative but I've been a little preoccupied with some super amazing things and am so excited to share with you!  I've found something that has literally changed my life in more positive ways than I can say.  I was introduced to a Health & Wellness product called THRIVE by Le-Vel.  I'm so excited to be sharing it with everyone because I want the people I know and love to feel better in every aspect of their lives like I finally am!  Most of you know I have struggled over the years with weight gain, depression, anxiety, constant migraines and back and neck issues from the weight gain.

I've only been taking these products for 14 days and have already lost 6 pounds.  I FEEL happier. I don't have issues with staying focused all day like I did before. I feel amazing ALL DAY LONG even after running my childcare and trying to save some energy for my family at night!  I don't have constant battles with "myself" anymore and my joints aren't killing me like they were BEFORE Thrive! I'm just an over-all MUCH happier person and can't believe what a difference these products make! 

If you want to take a peek at my website please go here...  The opportunity to share this with others is quite AMAZING as well! Ask me about that!!!!  I'd love to answer any questions you make have and get you living a happier and healthier life! 

One more short experience I want to share.... I received this message from my friend Cathy a few days ago and it really touched my heart and made me feel THAT much more excited about what I am doing and how much I am helping people.... Here's what Cathy said about her THRIVE experience...

"I wanted to wait one more day to see if it was just psychological or not. I really have decided it's not! I feel 1000% times better than just 3 days ago! I am more alert and not tired, and this is with sick kids!  My husband and I were at our wit's end, trying to decide what to do with me. For a few years now, I have been moody, grouchy, depressed, and tired. So tired, that I needed a nap every day just to function. I have been to the dr. numerous times. I have had hypothyroidism for 10 years not, so they have upped my meds many times, thinking that was the problem. I have been on anti-depressants for about 4 years. Didn't really help either. I was just "down" all the time, didn't want to really leave the house, wanted to quit my job; really I would be happiest being left alone and sleeping. Then, I would feel so sad and guilty about feeling this way and not doing enough for my kids and my husband, that I would feel even worse! It was a vicious cycle, and no way to live.

 I honestly, believe, with all of my soul, that Thrive has helped to kick start my body back into the land of the living! I can tell that it is doing things to get my energy level back up and this in turn, is helping raise my mood. I even exercised a little yesterday, which I haven't done in ages! If this continues to work, like I believe it will, I will consider it a miracle! Shanna, I thank you, my husband thanks you and my kids thank you, for sharing this wonderful product with me. I really believe that my life will change because of it!"

Contact me today so YOU can get your THRIVE on!!!
