Creating a safe home is more important than creating a pretty home. Did I just say that out loud? —–> Before I became a blogger, I worked for 10 years at a cancer center but at that time, cancer was never a word in our family dictionary until the last four years (every spring for FOUR years)… #1 Four years ago, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. What? We have no family history. #2 The following year, my younger sister underwent a double mastectomy and chemo for breast cancer. What? There is no hereditary gene! #3 Last year, my dad’s sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. Again, no family history on that side of my family either. #4 This past week, my youngest sister had her double mastectomy (biopsy results still pending). Four close family members in four years. You guys, it’s so obvious that what we consume and our environment are contributing factors. We need to be our own advocates when it comes to our health which is the #1 reason I’m so passionate about sharing Young Living essential oils and products. I was introduced to Young Living at a time when I was feeling helpless and praying. Now I can’t help but want to get these products into your homes too. I can’t help but feel like a walking time bomb myself but find comfort that I’m making better choices now in an effort to prevent being the next victim. And I understand. I used to roll my eyes too. Now my eyes are wide open to making healthier choices. One small change can help provide life-changing experiences. I’m offering a special deal to help get you started and if you’re not already, I pray that you’ll take the time to “take care of you”, to work towards creating a healthy home environment and consider joining an amazing supportive and encouraging community of women, men, moms, sisters, bloggers and non-bloggers, even doctors and hospitals – who are embracing wellness, purpose and abundance with the #1/leading essential oils company in the world. Let’s talk!

Today’s the day! Get this amazing bundle for you and your family! DIYShowOff 2015 Essential Oil Bundle

That DIY Party

Another week, more sharing DIY projects! It’s That DIY Party time!

That DIY Party @diyshowoff.com

Sharing:

It’s official! I’m totally in love with all the incredible things essential oils have done for my family and home. From my heart to yours, I want to make sure EVERYONE gets a chance to try these amazing oils so I’m offering a February special so YOU receive lots of goodies just for getting started!

Enter code “DIYShowOff” to receive the Young Living Premium Starter Kit that includes ELEVEN bottles of oils including Lavender, Stress Away, Tea Tree Oil, Peppermint, Lemon, Frankincense, Citrus Fresh, Thieves, Joy, Pan Away, and Purification, a diffuser and more! In addition, I am offering (out of my own pocket) a $20 Amazon Gift card, a bonus bottle of essential oil, and a 400+ page Quick Reference Guide book so you can learn all about how to use these amazing oils. Plus I connect you into our incredible support network with other oily families (and bloggers too if that’s your thing)!

DIYShowOff February 2015 Essential Oil Bundle

This package retails for over $300 but you can get it for HALF that price. The Premium Starter Kit allows you to purchase oils and products at wholesale prices from that moment forward, a HUGE savings! Plus it allows you to have people sign up under you, but no pressure from me to do that, I truthfully just want you to have the best experience you can!!! But when people see how amazing these oils are, they often want them too or feel bad NOT sharing with others, so getting a paycheck for sharing what you love is a FAB perk! We all make recommendations on things we love: restaurants, recipes, favorite shops, etc. This is no different. Just.try.them! 

This offer is good through February 28th, and to get the freebies you MUST send the code ‘DIYShowOff’ to thediyshowoff@gmail.com with your new member number so I can get your goodies right out in the mail.

Learn more here. Or buy the kit directly here and email me the code. 

Oh I can’t wait to help you get started and add you to my amazing team!

DIYShowOff weekly recap: It was a slow week DIY-wise on the blog. Just one thing to share from this past week. Sub zero temps, lots of snow, cabin fever/hibernation, maybe a ‘The Walking Dead’ marathon in pajamas for a few days (ahem) but I have been busy and there are DIY projects in the works, just not completed to share just yet. 

Exciting: Our open pantry was featured on the Country Living magazine website! That was a pleasant surprise and dream-come-true moment!

Important message: Feeling under the weather? Need an immune boost, energy, relief from a chronic issue or a lifestyle change? I see so many friends on Facebook suffering and feel bad NOT sharing how essential oils have changed our life. I was so skeptical at first too with a huge eye roll but all it took was giving something a try. Then I went from feeling helpless to feeling empowered! I want that for those I know and love too! I’m celebrating reaching a goal! Woo hoo! I’m extending these fun sign up bonuses to end of day today and would love to help you discover how something natural can replace the toxic options in your home. More info here. You’re invited to join my team (here) where you’ll have access to so many resources and information, extras and a new way to motivate you to make healthier choices. Let’s chat and I’ll get you hooked up!

That DIY Party

Happy New Year, DIY friends! What day is it? It’s time for That DIY Party!

That DIY Party @diyshowoff.com

DIYShowOff weekly recap: I sort of took the week off from DIY. I kept the house tidy (still haven’t packed away the holiday decorations – maybe today!) and spent time with family…specifically my sweet little new grandson since his mommy went back to work. He’s still under 10 lbs., but he’s certainly growing fast. Clubbed feet update: new casts tomorrow, bilateral tenotomy surgery Friday. He’ll then have holding casts for three weeks. Praying all goes well, for little pain and a speedy recovery.

@diyshowoff

1 1/2 weeks old to 5 1/2 weeks old growth – wow!

 Before the new year I shared a 2014 DIYShowOff recap

DIYShowOff weekly recap:

First…let me get a my proud grandma bragging out of the way. Aaro is two weeks old and got his first set of casts this past week. As you can tell, it doesn’t seem to faze him one bit. He’s such a cutie and a good sport and you guys, he smiles. I know…they say it’s just a reflex at this age but it melts my heart. 

Aaro - 2 weeks old @diyshowoff

Okay, on to the recap. It’s been a busy week:

That DIY Party

It’s December and time is flying! Are you getting ready for the holidays? I’m trying to balance holiday prep with being a new grandma (oh my gosh…so much sweetness!) and getting there, slowly but I’d much rather have a baby in my arms these days than dive head first into a box filled with Christmas baubles. I can’t get enough! But, let’s get this party started!

Weekly DIYShowOff recap: 

First, the birth announcement and introduction of my sweet new grandson …I had no idea being a grandmother would be like this. My heart is filled with love! I’m going to need some hugs and tissues when they go home next week.  Aaro Birth Announcement @diyshowoff
