Sponsor an Avon Cares USO2GO Kit

Hello Ladies and Gents.

Today I come to you with something different, it's no secret I sell and love Avon.  Every now and again I get the chance to promote some of the wonderful things they do for the less fortunate.  In this case it's the solders and it's not that they are in poverty, but they are without their family fighting for our freedom.  I regularly donate products to my church, we put them together as care packages, but now I get to offer you a chance to do something great in the life of a service man or woman.

Now thru June 10th Avon is partnering with the USO to offer care packages for isolated troops.  Each care package contains
  • (1) On Duty Unscented Roll On Anti-Perspirant Deodorant
  • (1) Skin So Soft Original Moisturizing Shower Gel
  • (1) Moisture Therapy Intensive Hand Cream
  • (1) Moisture Therapy Intensive Lip Ointment SPF 15
  • (1) Moisture Therapy Soothing Oatmeal Body Lotion


These are the quality Avon products we all love, you know a solder would be thankful for each item in this kit.  The best part is with every kit you sponsor you'll get a postcard with instructions on how to send a message to the troops.

This means you don't only get to show them you are thankful for all they do, but you can tell them too!

Each kit is $10 but the smile on a solder's face when they get it - Priceless.

How you can sponsor one (or more!) - they are ordered thru your Avon Rep.

If you want to order one thru me it's simple.
  1. Send $10 via Paypal (using Personal not Purchase tab) to NeverRockAlone@yahoo.com
  2. Contact me and I will give you my address for you to send cash, check or money order.
  3. If you live in my area (you know who you guys are) just let me know and I'll stop by/meet up.
I will make sure that everyone who orders a kit gets their postcard so they can send their message.

This is one very easy thing we can all do for the men and women who put their lives on the line for us.  I am honored to be able to help get them these kits. 

If you can't afford a kit but want to learn other ways you can help solders in your area visit www.USO.org 

I know it's early but I hope everyone has a blessed Memorial Day and that we all remember the solders we've fought so bravely in the past, present and future.

What a month!

Wow - it's been over a month since my last post!  It's been that crazy for me people!

I am working on getting some Easter pictures loaded onto Gather but today is Tuesday which means - AVON DAY!  I finally got all of the new items loaded into my store and for your bargain hunters out there - there is a new clearance bundle.  Over $8 worth of stuff marked down to $2.50!  We are getting ready for our new Mother's Day giveaway - it should be a good one!  :0)

To check out the store click the rolling toolbar at the top of this page.

The other exciting thing I have to talk about is Listia.com - does anyone remember Posh Points?  It's pretty much the same thing - list stuff you don't want get points.  The difference is this one you can make the bidder pay for the shipping, which is nice.  Some sellers offer free shipping so you could just bid on those and pay nothing!  Right now I have a lip balm listed and some seeds all free shipping.  You get points just for signing up and linking your accounts (twitter, facebook) and then you can earn 4 points per auction that you share on those.  Really easy to earn points and get FREE stuff.

You also get points for referring people so use my link!  :0)~  http://www.listia.com/signup/46992

If you are already on there find me as PayinDownDebt - i expect some of my Avon overstock will end up there.  ;0)

Till I get those Easter Pictures up - fingers crossed it's tomorrow!

Goodnight all!

  • MORE!!!
It's very simple to start at this site and branch off from there to do your daily check list and get paid for it.

Like many other Get Paid To sites there are Paid to Sign Up offers - just to name a few Blockbuster, eMusic and more.  Also paid shopping Pets, clothes, flowers, ink all the usual.

Cashout is $10.

Referrals - Yes!  You get a percent of their earnings.  So time to cash in on all those friends!  *wink*

It's easy - it's quick - I recommend it!  BeRuby.com

Who needs to relax, anyone, everyone? ;0) + You could win a free book!

This campaign's special is one that will help you melt into relaxation!  And seriously who after this long hard winter doesn't need a night of pampering?



That is why I have put the Avon Spa Finder Towel and Hot Rocks set on sale for $4!  Can you believe that?!?  You could easily spend $50 on a Salon Hot Rock treatment!  PLUS you also get my tip for making them work over the summer too!

To use these it is extremely simple!  I recommend putting on a kettle for some hot tea or coco, add in an extra two cups of water.  While that is heating up get a nice glass or ceramic bowl, i've found these keep the water warmer longer, one big enough for the towels and rocks to fit into.  When the water is ready pour into the bowl, pour your glass of tea or coco too, carefully place the rocks and towels into the bowl.  Find a relaxation place, this could be anywhere that is a comfy place for you, turn on some soft music.  (Wrap a towel around the bowl if you need to move it, I recommend you set up in your relaxation place.)  Let the rocks sit in the water, the longer they are in the water the warmer they will be.  I wouldn't recommended leaving them in longer than 3 minutes.  Carefully - maybe use tongs - remove the rocks from the water, dry off the excess water.  Place on the back of your neck, shoulders and/or back, where ever you are feeling stressed.  I like to put the towel over my face - I put one towel in the water and keep one to dry the rocks with.  Lay there for 20 minutes and let the work just melt away.  I get so relaxed I have to drink my coco with a straw because I am not lifting my head!  :0)  If you would rather lay face up you can place the rocks on your bed (I recommend a towel under the rocks) and lay on top of the rocks, this will allow you to read while you relax.

If that sounds heavenly to you - then run over to the store!  I only have a limited supply of - 4 left!  They aren't in the catalog at the moment so I don't know when I'll be able to restock!

Let's have a relaxation giveaway shall we?

One of my favorite ways to relax is with a good book!  I can take my twenty minute with my rocks and spend the next three hours with a good book - sadly I don't get to do that!  But I'll take 15 minutes when I can get it!  :0)  So for you my fantastic blog readers I am giving away a novel!

But wait - there is more!  If we get 100 entries I will give away BOTH books, that means we'll have two winners!

Still not excited?  If we get to 150 entries - I will also give away a random Avon product!

Winner one will get first pick, winner two and then winner three if there is one will get the last prize.

The prizes -


First we have The Cadaver's Ball by Charles Atkins - The love of a woman put these two friends at odds, after she dies with Peter at the wheel, Ed vows to ruin Peter. 342 Pages of Thrills!

Fallen by Celeste Bradley - She took Julian for her own and now there are crys of disgrace and demands for marriage.  She never wanted to trap Julian into marriage, heck she never wanted marriage at all, but there was something about him that drove her wild!  314 Pages of Romance.

And of course with 150 entries a random avon product.  Surely it's in my store  ;0)

How to enter - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!

First Mandatory entry - You must visit my store and tell me what the summer tip was for the rocks.  Make sure you leave me some way to contact you - examples my user name is Ghostly Ghoul on Gather, I am never rock alone on twitter, this is my name on facebook, here is my email address ect.  If I can't find a way to contact you I will pick another winner.

Live Link Cafe

You know so much of what we do online only benefits us if people see it.  A great deal of my time online is spent promoting stuff I have done or am doing online.  My biggest "promote" are my Gather writings, a lot of these writings I put a lot of work into.  Yet I get rewarded not by quality but the number of views I can generate.  I refuse to become a "tabloid" style writer so I have to work hard for my views.  A lot of "gathering" has become self promotion - share on facebook, share on twitter, put it on your blog, that some of the greatness that is Gather has been lost.  We have hopes it'll come back but in the mean time - here is a little shameless self promotion idea.

A Gather member posted on a site (Redgage) about Live Link Cafe.  Live Link Cafe is a very cool website which generates views to your content.  You won't get 100's of views because you post there but it is free promotion.  How it works is you post the link to whatever it is you want to promote - your business, blog, referral link ect and people click on it to earn credits for the ads they want to share.  There is no money involved, if you want more links just click other links.  The cool thing is I have really found some good websites thru it, and earned probably 10 views per Gather article I put up.  The more catchy the title more likely someone will click it.  There are even "extras" you can use your credits for to make your link stand out more.  However, I am satisfied with just the standard ad.

I think in this new Gather self promotion era it could be really useful to us.  I welcome everyone to check it out and sign up for free.  Also will I state I've been a member over two weeks I think, not one piece of spam!  I also encourage followers - I have a few more promotion ideas coming up at later dates.  :0)

May we all live through this snow in the South East!

My first blog entry!

This is my first blog entry, woohoo!  I actually had to really sit and think what I should make it about, what I even want to make this blog about.  After a shower, where admittedly I do my best thinking, I figured I'd make it about what all my online activities are about.  MONEY!  Who doesn't love money right?  But I also believe as with everything about me, it has to be fluid, I never really stay the same.  If someone would have told me 7 years ago I'd be a stay at home mom, I would have laughed them out of town!  But I digress, I decided to write my first blog post about something that surprised me.

This morning I logged into my email to confirm my cashout request at Swagbucks, I click the link and I'm takin to my "earning records".  With this pending payment of $5 I've made $40 and received a $5 amazon gift card in the 9 months I've been doing Swagbucks.  I guess I should explain that Swagbucks is a search engine similar to Google, but earn Swag Bucks randomly when you search.  You can then use those to cash out for cool prizes and gift cards.  The total effort spend is maybe a minute per Swagbuck.  It's very simple and I've got $45 in prizes, that isn't bad is it?

I've even got a couple friends into the Swagging mode!  It seems crazy to me now to search and not be rewarded.  I am glad that Swagbucks is holding strong and I believe going to be around to give me lots more money!  :0)

If you want to join there is a "Swidget" at the top of the right side, just click join.  It is free and really does pay!

Thanks for sticking thru my first blog post - they will get more interesting I promise.  This was just a test, I repeat this was just a test!  ;0)
