Still paying it forward! An opportunity for YOU!

Hello friends!!

If someone would have told me I'd blink and 5 months would have gone by I would not have believed it in January, but somehow that is exactly what happened.  I find that as my children get older, my life becomes busier.  Don't get me wrong, I actually love it but it makes me cherish EVERY minute even more. Who can relate to this?

A few months ago I started taking ME time.  As painful as I thought it would be, I started rising at 5am and have done 1 of 3 things.  1) meditated 2) read a book of growth 3) exercised.  As much as I thought I could never do this, every day when the alarm went off I pushed myself out of the zone of comfort and entered the zone of "out of the box".  Amazing things started to happen.  I found myself more relaxed and focused (meditation), growing into my strengths (reading) and not only leading by example (exercise) but also watching my whole body transform.

When I think back only 3 years ago, at age 34 my health was not great.  I ate what I considered to be good foods and I exercised here and there but I found myself constantly getting over a cold or just too tired to do anything more.  Fast forward to today and my day is booked from 5am-10pm at night and I still have energy.  To say I am grateful is an understatement.

I have had the privilege to work with a number of men and women in the health industry over the years and I continually learn and am inspired by them.  My initial daily food diet of cereal, fruit, veggies, meat, grains with some processed food is not out the window.  I have learned to read labels and truly understand the value of EVERYTHING I put into my body.  As I have done this and incorporated exercise I have noticed huge changes that have optimized not only how I feel but how I look.  These changes have been simple.  I have traded my cereal or toast in the for a nutrient dense shake, my snacks are no longer granola bars or muffins but instead a mixture of complex carbs and proteins.  My main meals always include a load of veggies and 4-6oz of lean protein and sometimes a treat like quinoa.  No more rice, pasta has been replaced with spaghetti squash or quinoa pasta and bread is almost 100% gone from my diet.  Soups take planning and are homemade.  Turkey, fish and chicken comprise of the majority of protein in the week.  Shakes ALWAYS follow my workouts.  Teas replace the majority of my coffees.  Treats are homemade protein balls or bars, kale and fruit smoothies, a pear or apple or pure chocolate. Life sure looks different now and I love it.

After having my children 11 years ago, I lost myself.  I wasn't sure what I wanted or how to get there.  My degree and job were on hold because I had a new job.  And as much as I LOVE my children, I didn't feel challenged.  I felt disconnected from the world.  I didn't feel good about myself.  It took me a long time to get out of that abyss which is why I am extending an arm out to YOU.  Before you get to that place, or if you are in that place let me offer you a solution.



It's simple: Look after yourself FIRST and things in life will align for you.

Are you ready to push that reset button?  Let's...



I am offering an EXCLUSIVE 5 spots to 5 women who are genuinely interested in their own health and wellness and are ready to MAKE THINGS HAPPEN physically, mentally, and financially.  Spots are limited because of this unique personal coaching experience that will be offered to you over the next 2 months.

If you would like to be considered for this, please send me a short paragraph why you need this in your life stating your physical, mental and financial goals.  All submissions will be kept private.  Depending on the number of submissions I receive, I may open another group.

Upon receiving submissions, I will send you more information about this amazing opportunity.

Ready, get set...2013.




CHANGE happens when you set your mind to it. We often take for granted the things we have in life until things are the way we remember them. Because of this, I will never take my health for granted. Be PROACTIVE rather than reactive. Is HEALTH on your priority list for 2013? 

Only ONE WEEK LEFT. I am cordially inviting YOU to join a group of 250 like-minded people including health professionals, fitness trainers and nutritional coaches who have said YES to a healthy future. 
Results GUARANTEED! Support above and beyond and motivation and ENERGY through the roof!!! 


Deadline to register is December 28th, and program starts January 7th, 2013! This is the year that YOU will be the healthiest version of YOU!! Private message me ♥


Is it possible to get healthy and strong?  You bet it is.  You know my story.  What is yours?

Here is just a sampling of friends who have also taken the challenge...


Busy with work, children and day to day stuff, my dear friends Randy and Sara were tired, stressed and struggling with health challenges. This is a couple who was already health conscious but took it to the next level. 

After discovering the Isagenix Systems, everything changes. They were delighted to find a company whose product was mainly gluten free, wheat free, and barley free to support Sara's needs.  After 30 days, they were overjoyed by decreased stress, weight loss and increased energy.  But even better, this couple realized that they had spent no additional money in the month buying their 30 day systems because they were redirecting their grocery money.  In fact, this couple SAVED $!!

To their surprise, the benefits of this program kept showing up.  The convenience of a morning shake meant more time with their precious children and a more pleasant morning experience. Soon they began sharing a morning shake with their kids who also perked up and showed improved mental clarity.

This couple has come a long way and are now sharing the benefits of this program with family and friends who are also experiencing AMAZING results.


Attention Students! Does this sound familiar? As a full-time student, juggling 2 jobs, Krystal was struggling with work, school, and exams. It left her tired, in a mental fog with no energy, stressed out, and eating 'convenience food' for meals.

After discovering the Isagenix Systems, it changed everything. With incredible super nutrition and cleansing components, her energy shot up (no more sleeping in class), her stress dropped, she had mental clarity (studying became easier), and she dropped dress sizes because the system was CONVENIENT. No more fast/convenient food, skipping breakfasts, or missing meals because it was easy, convenient, and most of all, it WORKS!

These are just a few in the thousands of success stories to share!!!  By finding two friends for your lean team you can earn up to 50% off your first purchase...and that is only the beginning of good things to come.  Message me for details today.

2013--My invitation to you!

WELCOME!!!

I am thrilled you have stopped by my blog today because I am have some exciting things to share.  Let me take the time to thank each and every one of you who has friended me on Facebook and has supported my journey over the past few years.  From my son's diagnosis of autism, to my knee injury to my own personal battles with health...and of course the VICTORIES!

While I am not actively posting cards, I still get the chance to make cards and scrapbook pages too but more on a personal level or needs level.  I doesn't stop me from drooling over the latest copies of Paper Crafts Magazine and their special edition mags!!  I LOVED the recent die cut issue...especially the project submitted by my friend Glenda Wyatt.  But what is not to love about paper crafting supplies that are carefully crafted into masterpieces?  I appreciate the time and effort that goes into every publication as I know they plan things 6-12 months ahead of time.
*Check out my For Sale link for some great deals!

Speaking of planning things ahead of time, in June I shared about my 5km run with my friend Glenda.  Around that time I registered for the Las Vegas 1/2 Marathon scheduled for Dec 2, 2012.


From June until December I trained for this run.  Most of the summer was core training with some running and beginning the first week in Sept I followed this training program.

If you have never heard of the Strip at Night run I encourage you to watch the video link below.



So after core training and running I had the privilege of having a photo session.  One of those photos included wearing my running bib and 1/2 marathon metal.  Fun stuff!!!



2013 is around the corner.  I encourage you to embrace your health dreams.  Even the ones you don't believe are possible.  If I can change my health life around so can you.  Changes can be pro-active rather than re-active.  There are solutions for increased energy, greater endurance, mental clarity,  weight loss, weight gain, ageing with grace no matter what age!!


2013 is the year that YOU are going to become the HEALTHIEST version of you!!!! When you look ahead to the New Year, would you LOVE to have a plan to achieve your HEALTH and FITNESS goals, and be a part of an amazing, GLOBAL community that

Updated Isagenix 101

Hello out there!!

I've had a number of people asking me about "My Isagenix Story" over the last few months which you will find on the side link and as such have updated my link and am sharing on my blog too.

This is a long post.  I encourage you to take a few days to read the materials.  I will split them up by days.

DAY 1.

Your support has been amazing!! I can’t tell you how many wonderful stories I have heard from people who have 1) changed their lives using Isagenix 2) who are changing their lives with Isagenix 3) and who have supported me during my life transformation with Isagenix.

There is one remarkable thing about paper crafters; we truly are a tight knit community.  We have laughed, cried, smiled, cheered, encouraged, prayed etc for each other. And when we finally get to meet face to face through local events; CHA; retreats etc the bond is already there.  We are like old friends meeting for the first time. So thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there for me and letting me be there for you!

I continue to get asked questions about the programs; all valid and important questions; and I want those people considering Isagenix to be well informed; especially regarding support and enrolment.

PLEASE BE AWARE...There are many links online that lead you to other people's websites who are not always interested in helping you to achieve your goals; that being said there are definitely some fabulous coaches out there too.  Please know that while I have links on my blog to my personal Isagenix site I am committing my time to support you.  The teacher in me wants others to make informed decisions about your health.  No two people are the same when it comes to Isagenix even if you are ordering the same product.  I take into consideration a number of factors including your goals, the medication you take, your lifestyle and the supplements you need. These are critical factors that tell me if Isagenix is right for you.

“What is Isagenix?”

It’s a question I get asked a number of times a day but the simple truth is, because it’s so many things to so many people, it’s hard to sum it up.

Isagenix is essentially a super food that has been formulated with some of the best products around the world to help you improve your general health and well being.  The idea behind Isagenix was a health and wellness program for people who wanted to take charge of their health.  But it was the side effects that started selling this product!  Not only were people feeling better but they were losing weight and experiencing a multitude of other positive changes.

The ingredients are all natural, botanically derived with no stimulants or chemical additives.   The programs are nicely laid out, you receive a support book to show you what to do and how to achieve the best results, there are video supports and best of all you have support through your coach!

Isagenix to me is a life changing. It helped me release 14lbs as well as gain 5lbs of lean body muscle.  It helped my husband release 20lbs and my mum 67lbs!  At a time where I was personally feeling hopeless, tired and sick it was a second chance at a healthy life. Isagenix has also given me a tangible way to help other people. In addition, it has also brought incredible new people into my life--for which I am so thankful. Overall, Isagenix impacted my life in ways more profound than I ever believed a product could.  There truly is no time like the present to take control of your health! Have you had a chance to look at the success stories on the website? 

Why Isagenix?

Why Not!  The best part is there is an Isagenix support system for everyone from kids to adults. 

Are you athletic trying to build muscle? 
Are you trying to lose weight? 
Are you interested in youthful aging?
Are you trying to regain your health and boost your immunity? 
Are you trying to gain weight?
Are you skipping meals? 
Are you eating poorly?
Do you want to improve mental clarity?
Do you want more energy? 
Do you need a place to start your new journey to health and wellness?

**Note: it is important that you consult with me if you are pregnant and/or nursing as some of the products are not suitable.

What are the benefits of Nutritional cleansing?

   strengthens your immune system
   supports health brain chemistry to give you clarity of thought
   restores antioxidants to help your body with the effects of pollution
   slows down the effect of aging on the body
   reduces stress
   improves absorption of essential nutrients
   aids with digestion especially issues like heartburn, bloating etc
   weight lose
   increased energy
   builds lean muscle, increasing your body's ability to burn fat and stay active
   radiant skin
   reduces and eliminates unhealthy cravings

Isagenix is NOT a diet and it is NOT the latest fad!  It is a lifestyle.   

Because it's not a diet there is a lot of flexibility, you eat plenty of 'real' food and it is a support not a substitute for healthy eating and exercise.

The program was not designed to be a diet but the 'side effect' of cleansing and good nutrition is that excess weight and inches are shed.  The products create balance in people's bodies and therefore everyone's results are unique.  The body is the miracle.  When we feed it proper nutrition

If you need to lose weight, weight is released.  If you need to gain weight, you gain lean muscle.  Most people report increased energy, more restful sleep, mental clarity, improvement of digestive issues, decrease in pain and more.  A well nourished and cleansed body is able to function optimally so the miracle becomes not so much the products but your own body.  

Regaining control of your health and wellness is especially critical in our world today because of the number of toxins and chemicals we are exposed to on a day to day basis.  Much of our food is over processed and refined and does not provide us with the nutrients we need.  We live in a fast paced world where “the quicker or convenient" the better .  We have come to rely on fast food, canned, or packaged items and many of us are not reading the labels of the foods we are eating.  For instance, some peanut butters are made with icing sugar!  Many of our foods are made with synthetic sugars and added salt  Have you checked your soup labels for MSG?  And we wonder why we are fighting obesity, heart disease and cancer.

Have you ever thought about all the things you are exposed to on a daily basis?
Here is a short 9 min video about toxicity. 


DAY 2.

Question and Answers

Other than the Isagenix website where else can I learn about the product? 
You are welcome to e-mail me OR there is a great video review on Isagenix.

I am a celiac.  Can I use the product?

The simple answer is yes.  Many of the products are wheat and gluten free.  There are however TWO products that do not meet this standard.  This is why it is critical to work 1-1 with a coach.



I am a diabetic.  Can I use the products? 
Again the simple answer is yes however I highly recommend that you work with your doctor to ensure you have met all your needs too.  Did you know the formulator for Isagenix is diabetic?  You can bet he made sure he could use the product too!

I have gut issues.  Will this program work for me? 
That is a hard question to answer because results vary from person to person but in many cases it does improve digestive issues.

I am hypoglycemic and eat regularly throughout the day so how can I be sure to meet those needs especially on cleanse days?

I too am hypoglycemic.  I  used the IsaSnacks and the IsaDelights to help stabilize my blood sugar levels in addition to curbing my hunger.  I did surprisingly well on my cleanse days!

Can my children have the shakes too?

Absolutely!  Their portioning is slightly different but they can also enjoy the benefits of the shakes.  In fact there are many products the kids can have from vitamins to fruit sources and much more!  There is a chart available to show you what products can have at what ages.  I would be happy to e-mail it to you.  My kids are 10 and 9.  They have shakes daily that include the Greens and the Isafruits.  I have already seen so many benefits especially for my son who is autistic and a picky eating. His complexion looks better (he doesn’t look as ashen) and his general moods are better too.  Both kids are more full during the day and don’t snack as much and they don’t ask for sweets as much either.

I have  _________ allergy.  Can I use Isagenix products?

The best way to answer that is to either contact me OR check out www.isagenixhealth.net to see how it works for certain conditions, lifestyle choices, kids, etc .

Are the shakes really THAT filling?  

Yes. I find they are most filling when you add ice to them.  I like mine either the consistency of a malt or a little less thick while my hubby likes to drink them as if they are "chocolate milk". You can also add small amount of fruit from time to time.   And don’t forget, if you are still hungry you can also have a healthy snack (fruit, veggies, a few nuts, etc.) every 2 hours so food is never too far!

I am a coffee drinker.  I don’t think I can go without my caffeine because I need that to boost my energy especially first thing in the morning.   

My husband is a shift worker.  He also NEEDED the boost during his shift.  I too was used to having my jolt first thing in the morning.  All I can say is that I look up to my hubby because he made it through without a stitch of coffee and for the most part didn’t feel that he needed it at all.  We used the product “Want More Energy” which is a tasty drink mix several times in the day to fill the “coffee urge”. Since having completed our cleanse, I have only had one caffeinated beverage and hubby has a coffee 1-2 times a week as opposed to 3-5 a day.  We just don’t need it anymore…our bodies are not caffeine dependent.

Do the product make you feel hyper or jittery?

No.  While I have more energy it’s not in a hyper kind of way it’s more like I don’t need to curl up on the couch on an afternoon and sleep.  I am more alert, I can participate in longer exercise times, I am less tired.


Are the Isagenix shaker bottles PBA free?

Isagenix shaker bottles are PBA free.  You may have people asking that. You can refer them to: www.blenderbottle.com It says right on the home page that it is BPA free and this link takes you to a more detailed page about it:  http://www.blenderbottle.com/pdf/BlenderBottleQuickFacts.pdf

Is Isagenix a pyramid scam?
Did you know that EVERY company is a pyramid?  Do you have a boss?  Then chances are your boss is the top person and he/she has people working below him/her. Besides, pyramid scams were made illegal in the 1970s.
Isagenix is a network marketing company like Discovery Toys, Mary Kay, Close to My Heart, Usborne Books, Usana and more! Network marketing is the wave of the future.  More and more people are creating online stores, selling products online and buying online too.  For many of these companies advertisement is word of mouth and is shared through many facets like social networking, blogs and websites too.

What do you eat on a cleanse day?
The Isagenix program is set up to provide everything you need and to help fill the deficiencies.  So that being said this is what a 30 day program looks like (cleanse day included)

Pre-cleanse days:
Drink LOTS of water.  Always start the day with a glass of water.
2 shakes and 1 meal between 400-600 calories (has to be eaten either at breakfast or at lunch time)
Snacks up to every 2 hours: Isagenix snacks or a few nuts, veggies, fruit                   

Cleanse days: (4 days in total)
Drink LOTS of water.  Always start the day with a glass of water.
You will drink 4oz of cleanse drink 4times daily in addition to eating 6 wafers throughout the day too.
You can also have a few more snacks because you never want to be starving or hungry through this cleanse. 

Shake days:
Drink LOTS of water.  Always start the day with a glass of water.
2 shakes and 1 meal between 400-600 calories

Read more about the product, watch a video and listen to audio HERE.

What do I do after the 30 day cleanse?

You meet with me (phone, FB, Skype, e-mail) and we discuss your goals. Each person will have different experiences and goals so together we will create a custom "My Pak" just for you.

Do I have to do a maintenance program?    

I had a serious choice to make: I could continue or not.  The fact of the matter is I choose to have a healthy lifestyle for the REST of my life.  Today, I have a customized My Pak and you can too!

Isagenix seems pricey.

I love this question.  My reply to this...do you eat?  Well then Isagenix is free.  Isagenix does not require any new money.  Instead, Isagenix replaces a portion of your current groceries.  It's that simple. And here's the best part, Isagenix offers ways that you can earn your monthly groceries absolutely free simply by sharing it with friends and family.  In addition, you can also write off a portion of your groceries, house, household bills and more by creating your own business. So if Isagenix doesn't fit your current grocery budget, I'll show you a way it can.

Do you sell Isagenix?

Yes, I do sell  Isagenix product however I do recommend you enrol as an associaterather than purchasing through me so that YOU benefit.  Why you ask?

Because you save BIG TIME.  Remember your 30 day program can either cost you $272 (wholesale) OR $383 (retail).  If you are like me, the deeper the discount the better!! Get your annual membership for a low price of $29 (just like you would for Costco) and you will immediately begin benefitting from the rewards. Free shipping coupons, $$ coupons, discounts, sales and more.

DAY 3.

My Results

I lost a total of 14lbs following the 30 day program and began losing even more by implementing clean eating and exercise in conjunction with my maintenance "My Pak".  With my new found energy, I also found motivation.  I soon began working out regularly and gaining lean body muscle.  I challenged myself to new things like weight training, circuit training and running.  I look and feel better today than I ever have!!!  

Then
2010



After
2012



What made you successful? 

First off, my support team, especially my family.  They supported me the whole way with even more encouragement from hubby and mum.  Second, I had a cleanse coach (the one I signed up with--she was so helpful and supportive).  Third, the results.  When I started seeing results it motivated me so much more. A support team certainly helps to increase your success!

Why should I enrol with you vs enrolling directly through the company?

The choice is ultimately yours.  At the end of the day you will be placed with another person regardless so why not hang out with another paper crafter with like minded health goals? 
I am here to support you through this journey whether it be losing 10 lbs-200 lbs+, regaining your health and wellness, sports training etc.  I belong to an awesome support team and have attended a number of workshops where I have been learning about the health benefits of the products so that I am well informed and can pass along that knowledge to you.

I support you by:
   helping you customize a program to meet your goals 
   setting up your first purchase
   sending you support materials
   teaching you about your back office (where you place your orders and adjust autoship etc)
   sharing meal ideas
   answering your questions
   linking you up to our Isa Group Cleanse group on FB as well as my personal page Health Is a Fit
   sharing the benefits of exercise
   teaching you how to replace some of your current meals with comparable clean eating meals
   being your cheerleader--because we all need a team on our journey!!
   helping you earn your product free
   helping you start your own business  

How can I enrol with Isagenix?
You can either enrol through the website OR contact me personally.  I recommend that you first contact me so that I can help you decide what products will both support your personal goals but also your health needs.  Your information/e-mail will be kept confidential.

In addition to USA, Canada and Puerto Rico, Isagenix can also support people from New Zealand, Australia, Hong Kong and Taiwan.  While you can sign up through thewebsite if you are from USA, Canada or Puerto Rico, international countries can only enroll through an associate. You can email me and I will gladly set you up.  

When you order you will fill in information and some of it may be confusing. Ordering as an Associate is better than ordering as a Preferred Customer.  That way, "when" you are approached you can enroll someone up under you and will be compensated.  When you get results like we did, people are going to ask you what you did in order to achieve it.  My mum is a prime example.  She has been going to the pool daily and attending an aqua fit class.  The women in the class were so amazed by her transformation that they asked her what she did.  She explained the program and about how she was feeling and before she knew it 3 ladies from her class became associates too!  Again, when you order as an associate there is NO expectation of selling the product. Don’t forget to sign up for autoship for even more savings.

I am committed to providing you with the information you need to get started on your health and wellness journey.  You are always welcome to ask me more questions and I will be happy to share experiences and answers with you.

In Good Health;
Alli Miles

30-60-90 Committing to life

What an amazing weekend so far.  I had a fabulous few days of workouts, enjoyed some sunshine, took a trip to my old community and am now working on reporting for the end of the year.  For the last week I have been working on girl guide trading pins with the little miss as she is participating in Hands across the border, an event where guiders meet from both Canada and the US and swap pins.  I'll take a photo of the lil' miss and her traders when she gets home tonight.  Lots of fun for sure.

Not only did I recently have a phenomenal 5K run experience but I have also committed to bringing back my overall health from the inside and out.  After a 3 month challenge (March-May) called the LEGacy challenge, I had an amazing opportunity for a photo op.  It's a little out of my comfort zone to dress up in short shorts and an athletic top but the core group of women inspired me to show that a 3 month commitment to health, fitness and wellness is worth capturing.  What I didn't know then that I know now is that 3 month challenge has created a lifestyle for me and I am more committed now to ensuring I exercise every day--a far cry from my previous sedentary/too busy/I can't lifestyle.  Just because I ate healthy didn't mean I was healthy.


Photo# 1--So before I show you my personal pics (check back tomorrow), here is our group shot.  There were 100 participants in our LEGacy challenge group and this is just a small representation of about 30 of us.  The couple on the left are our trainers.  Amazing role models in every aspect of wellness, fitness, clean eating and just plain inspiration.  Want to know the best part, I did all my workouts from home!

Photo #2-- Is a group from the above group, who also incorporate Isagenix products as part of our 6 daily meals plan.  Together, we are committed to teaching others how the body is the true miracle once you fuel it with optimal nutrition.  

I will never take my health for granted again and have made a commitment to educate others on taking back their health.  Life is too short to wait until tomorrow or down the road.  Be pro-active rather than reactive.  Far too often we are stricken with illness before we do something about it.  I used to think I ate well and looked after myself but that was far from the truth.  Just because I eat "healthy foods" most of the time didn't mean I was healthy.  In fact I had no idea what that truly meant.  Do you read your labels EVERY time?  Do you make most of your meals from scratch?  Do you buy all organic food?  Are you avoiding GMOs?  Do you know that every number on the fruit and veggie labels equates to how it is grown?  Do you exercise daily?

Weekend plans and crafty stuff for sale

Hey everyone!!!  Wishing you all an amazing weekend ahead.  Any great plans out there?  Would love to hear what you are up to.

Tomorrow I am privileged to be able to return to one of my "hometowns", a place I lived for 4 years and that captured my heart in many ways.  A small and quaint community on the west coast of Vancouver Island--amongst the coastal rainforest and roaring oceans.  Rugged, and vulnerable to ocean weather, 12 feet of annual rain...it was a place where we met some amazing people and created a life time of memories.  The kids are counting down the hours to return too as they have made play dates with friends and a date with dad to the amazing new aquarium.  So where do I fit in to this picture?  I will enjoy the long twisty, windy, rough road out there and then meet with some of my homeschool families.  As many of you know, I am an online school teacher and support worker with both regular and special needs children.  It is a job that requires long hours, but is one that I feel makes a difference in this world.

So why the chit chat about back home?  Well that is really where my "career" in blogging and subsequently paper crafting started.  I spent many hours in my stamp room, creating cards and scrapbook pages for DTs and classes.  It is also where I started designing stamps for PTI.  I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss those days however nowadays I am still creating, just in different ways.  For one thing I realized that many hours of crafting meant many hours of sitting, which I already do for teaching (e-mails, student learning plans, individual education plans, Skype conversations and reporting).  So now, I spend my time being more active in my down time and set special time for crafting and creating memories with my kiddos.  My daughter loves stamping and I am sure as she gets older and begins taking her own photographs, she will also take on scrapbooking like her momma.  As for my son, his crafting/creating will always involve building and taking apart things. LOL.

Many of the local crafters know that I have been selling many of my crafty tools/supplies.  Trust me, I'm still getting crafty.  I just haven't been taking photos.  The other thing is, I still have PLENTY of crafty things in my stamp room...just passing on some super savings to fellow crafters that I know will give life to things that were sitting on my shelves.

With that being said, I have a few items I want to sell and would appreciate your help in giving these items a new home.  Buyer will be responsible for shipping prices and must be willing to pay by paypal.  In addition, these items are not being sold individually but in sets.  Prices are firm and have been discounted for your benefit.  For the most part, all items are in excellent condition.  Please feel free to contact me with your questions.  I am shipping from BC, Canada and will provide you with a general shipping cost before payment request will be sent.
