Candi's Thirty-One Gifts Giveaway


I am so excited that my sweet friend Candi with Candi's 31 Gifts is partnering with My Pretties to host this giveaway.

If you have been living under a rock and are not familiar with Thirty One Gifts, here is a little bit about what they say about their company.

"Thirty-One is a collection of fashionable, functional products like bags, totes, and organizers. There are fresh new fabrics each season and most items can be monogrammed. The company was founded by Cindy Monroe on the belief that we are all put here on this earth for a reason, and that each of us has a unique purpose. Her concept is that each of these products will help to make your life easier and more positive, and that each of them has several purposes."

What I say about them is that Thirty One sells well made, affordable products that really do make your life easier and way cuter! They have a bag or container for everything.

They have these really cute purses.



They have things like the Thermal Totes that are great for school lunch boxes or to throw a snack in the car when you are headed out for a day of shopping & errands like this.



They have Utility Bags that are great for keeping your craft and scrapbooking supplies together or keeping the clutter at bay in your car like this.



They have super stylish baskets like this to keep your mail and magazines together.

And to top it off they have all these really cute fabrics to choose from and monogramming! Who doesn't love a polka dotted monogrammed bag, right?

Thirty One really is an amazing company to buy from and in my phone conversation with Candi this week, it is a truly amazing company to work with. You know those people on Facebook that post their Disney pictures and you are green with envy? Well, Candi was one of those and Thirty One paid for a huge part of her trip for her. Jealous much? I am.

Candi is going to be hosting a conference call about the opportunity with Thirty One on Monday night and would love to share with you the benefits of being a Thirty One Consultant. This is what she has to say about it.

"I am conducting a business opportunity call on January 10 at 7:00pm central. This conference call is an information only call on the business opportunity and it is also a time for you to ask any questions that you may have about beginning your own Thirty-One business.

My family and I have been so blessed by this business financially and my personally, I love sharing this opportunity with others. We just returned from Disneyworld in November, $1000 of which Thirty-One paid for as a bonus, plus we bought all of our Christmas without credit cards this year, which was a first in a while. I love the benefits I receive from Thirty-One by conducting parties and meeting new friends!

As you can tell, I'm pretty passionate about it and I love to see it benefit others, so why not you? The call-in number is: 559-546-1000 Access Code: 635172# There are no strings attached and I will not bother you afterward. If you decide a Thirty-One business is for you, wonderful, and I look forward to working with you! If you decide it is not at this time, that is perfectly fine too!"

If you need a little extra cash or like a lot of us, just need time outside the home with wonderful ladies, it's worth a listen. I promise she won't bug you 42 times next week. If she does, let me know and I'll go hunt her down in the carpool line and delete your number from her phone!

I have the red/maroon fabric with circles and dots on it. I really like it. However, I'd love a bag for my daughter or another style - but I love 'em all! The hot pink one would be really fun, or the black and white polka dot.

Stacy  – (January 7, 2011 at 4:18 PM)  

I can't decided between the floral fanfare and onyx medallion. Thanks for the chance!

Hi Kristy! Thank you for visiting my blog and becoming a follower. I just wanted to let you know that I signed up to follow your blog as well! Thanks for inviting me to the tote giveaway too. Gray is one of my favorite colors, so, in case I won, the gray polka dot fabric would be my choice!

I just love the look of your blog. It is so fresh and simple. I would like to change the font on my blog post titles. I am reluctant to fool around in HTML. If you have any advice, I would so appreciate it. Thanks so much!
