More to Come – My Favorite Things

It can feel a little overwhelming to absorb the greatness of all the new products in the Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration Brochure. Over the next week, I’ll be sharing lists of My Favorite Things from these two books. I’ll share the products, along with samples and some great product videos. It’s always fun to share my thoughts about what’s red-hot in these catalogs in hopes that I can help you make decisions about which items you want to order first. Please be on the lookout!

Are You Placing an Order Today?  I’d love for you to place an order more than $150 so you can earn Host Rewards (including the price-reduced Hostess Stamp Sets) – you can even earn ADDITIONAL rewards for purchases greater than $250 during Sale-a-Bration.  If your order is less than $150, though, I would love for you to add a Host Code – PA23TZ7C.  Just enter the code when the system asks if you have a Hostess Code.  The Host Code is always available in the right column of my blog (just under my super-handsome picture).  <3

Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. Hey Brian, love your website
    Not sure if anyone has told younbut there seems to be some issues
    I am using the same link I always have but it opens to the 23rd December and I have to page forward to get to the latest post. Hitting your logo at the top doesn’t take me forward either.
    Have a wonderful new year. I went to bed early too. Like 9pm it was midnight somewhere then. I like to be at my best for the start of a new year, not tired or hung over.

    • I have the same problem!! Love all of your inspiration!!

    • I have been having that same issue!

    • I’m so sorry you are having issues. My “IT people” have been looking into this but can’t find anything wrong with my blog – there’s something in a server somewhere in the world causing this. It only happened once to me – I cleared the cookies in my browser, and it went away. Will you please email me to let me know what browser you use to access my blog (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome…)? Hopefully we can drill down from there. One way to make sure you always see my posts is to subscribe in the button on the right side of the page. You’ll receive an email every day with the full post and a link to the post should you want to click on anything or leave a comment. We are working on it and understand that it must be frustrating. Sorry I can’t be more help.

  2. Can’t wait to see your favorites. Stay warm. I hear snow is headed your way!

  3. Waiting on your FAVES !!! That is always fun !!
    Happy New Year !! Stay warm ….stay well (lots of sick folks this year!)
    Listen to the old nurse ….wash your hands ….a lot !!
