An Announcement and A Giveaway

Hi Friends!  I am so excited!  I just cannot wait any longer to share this with you!  I have officially launched my new business adventure with Initial Outfitters.  I am now an official independent consultant/outfitter!  That means, I am now able to sell beautiful custom engraved jewelry and embroidered gift items directly to you.

I will primarily be selling through home and office party's, but also individual sales through my website online.  This means you also will be able to purchase directly from me as well!  Isn't that great?  I certainly think so!



I love these products!


I have been researching this company for over 3 years now.  I cannot believe I didn't sign up last year when I considered joining them immediately after my retail employment business closed. Talk about procrastinating!

  As you may remember in my previous employment I worked in a small local embroidery shop that sold many items similar to what I am now able to sell directly to you.   However, we did not carry jewelry, not for my lack of trying though!  My heart has been is this business for some time now and I am so excited to now be able to continue selling affordable personalized gifts.



Have I tempted you enough with a sampling of our jewelry?  Perhaps you would be more interested in the embroidered gifts.
  



Or maybe you prefer engraved soaps?


Or maybe a custom personalized license plate...

..or vinyl monograms!  Whew!  There is so much good stuff here to offer!

  I am also very happy to be able to make my own schedule and pace.  This is something that I have been praying about heavily for the last few months as we are dealing with many health challenges in our family with our parents.  I have spent time yesterday and this morning getting my website up and running, adding a blog page and creating a fan page on Facebook all geared towards helping me successfully sell my products.  I am sure I will be tweaking my blog page under my header often.   So please, be sure and check it out often as when you visit me here at The Decorative Dreamer! Also, I could use all of your prayers as well that my business will be a success and a blessing to our family. 

If you are interested in seeing more gifts or shopping now, please visit my website at
Just click on "shop now" to browse through our many selections. 

Since I am centrally located, I am happy to travel throughout most of South Carolina for my blog friends who are interested in hosting a party for your friends. I have great incentives to offer you and would love to speak with you personally.  For any of my blog friends who are also interested in selling Initial Outfitters in your own state or even in SC, I would love to add you to my team. I would be happy to speak with you personally as well,  about our organization! 

Finally!  Here's the fun part! In order to help me celebrate I am having a giveaway!  I haven't yet decided what I will be offering but I can promise you it will be from Initial Outfitters and personalized just for you! 
 And if that isn't enough, I am also offering another giveaway soon from CSN Stores to celebrate reaching over 100 followers again.  That giveaway coming up later this week!  Woohoo!  Exciting times here at The Decorative Dreamer.

  If you would like to enter this contest;
1.  You must be a follower, please leave me a comment reminding me you are to enter = 1 chance
  2.   Please go over to my Initial Ouftitters website and browse through our gifts.  Then come back here and tell me in a second entry what you would like to win = 2nd chance
3. Copy the first photo on this post of our catalog cover and add my giveaway to your blog, then come back here and leave a separate message letting me know = 3 chances.
This contest will officially close on February 28th, 2011.

I am joining Elements Interiors for Wassup Wednesday, cause this is what I've been up too, and to Kim's WUW party at SSS, because this jewelry will definitely Wow YOU!

Thanks for visiting today and I am hoping you are glad you did too!
May God Bless!
Mary

  10. This is something very different, and I love monogrammed ANYTHING. I'm thinking that it will really come in handy at graduation time. I love to monogram gifts.

    (If fact, keep that in mind in the next couple of months. You could even blog some great ideas.)

    I'll be heading over there when I get up and get more blog time tomorrow morning. Teaching all day on Tuesday makes me too tired to REALLY give it the look I want to give it.

    EXCELLENT business choice, Mary.

    And, for chance number 1, I'm already a follower. I'll be back for more chances. Oh yes... I will. I'm in it to win it.

  34. OMG!!! I love all things monogrammed and your site has so many wonderful things. I think I just spent almost an hour browsing your site and looking and the photos on your flicker page. There are so many pieces of jewelry that I want. Love, love, love all the monogrammed pieces that I couldn't pick just one favorite.

    I had such a hard time picking a favorite. I do love the Black Happy-Go-Lucky Tote.

  36. Your catalog looks amazing! Soooo many choices... If I had to choose today, I'd choose the child's duffle bag to give to my little grandson who is moving away in a few weeks. He'll need it when he comes to visit Nonna! Thanks for the second entry!

  37. How fun to start your own business. Good luck, Mary! I thought I was already following you but I guess I wasn't but now I am. I like the black and turquise jewelry and the peridot necklace....Christine
