Operation Write Home Blog Hop

As you have read in previous posts, I'm involved with a super project called Operation Write Home.  It is a project where crafters all over the country make homemade cards that are sent overseas to our Hero's.  The cards are used by the HERO's to write home to their loved ones. They LOVE homemade cards vs the ones in the PX.

We are working on Valentine Day cards right now and have a deadline of January 7th. (cards always need to be sent approximately 6 weeks ahead of the holiday to assure they reach the Hero's in time for them to send them back to their loved one's. The deadline for Christmas cards has passed ) 

There is an incentive to send the Valentine cards earlier, as Archway has offered to donate sweets for all cards sent by December 1st.  Go here: to read all the details.  Archway Cookies matches us sweets for sweets - they'll send cases and cases to our OWH contacts to enjoy for the Christmas holidays!

Operation Write Home is one of three charities that are in the running to win $50,000 from Joann Fabric.  That money would go a long way to help with the cost of postage to send the cards to our HERO's.  They just sent the 500,000th card so imagine what that cost in postage!!  They also need envelopes for the cards that arrive without ones.  Check out the link:  and vote DAILY (once every 24 hours)
Now for some fun.....anyone that places an order on my website from the time of this post-until Sunday night at midnight (est) will be placed in a drawing for a $25 Willow House gift certificate. 
There are a lot of other bloggers taking part in this OWH blog hop.  Check them out, starting with
Courtney at Brighten Your Day the Stampin Up! Way,

Here is a couple of the cards I've made for Valentine's.  What do you think???

Free Food tonight

I was lucky enough to get a sneak  "eat" at the new Red Robin in our area.  A mom's group that I belong to gets "invites" to new opening of restaurants, movie premiers...etc. 

I had the Riblets and fries with Strawberry Lemonade.  The Riblets were very SPICY but really good.  The Strawberry Lemonade was SUPER.

Have you ever been to Red Robin?  What's your favorite item on the menu??

Check back here tomorrow for a very important posting.....

Operation Write Home update

I am so excited about Operation Write Home and how it can impact our Hero's!  So far I've made Valentine and All Occasion cards.  I'm really looking forward to sending my first box.

If you haven't heard about this project, go to this post or to their Website,

If you are not crafty, I am looking for letters I can include in the boxes.  A thank you note would mean so much to them.  Maybe you can get your local school or church involved.  You don't have to mail them to me, you can send your own box to OWH.  Check their website for the address nearest to you.

Thanks in advance & have a wonderful rest of the week.

What are you waiting for?

Wouldn't you love to finish your Holiday shopping, before Thanksgiving, from the comfort of your HOME?

I seriously hate going to the Mall and Retail makes me break out in hives.  If you are like me, lets have a girls night out in your home and you and your friends can shop till you drop without fighting for a parking spot.

I am offering a sweet BONUS for November Hostess....from me.  An extra $25 credit towards the item of your choice, when you hold a party in November that totals at least $500.  That is in addition to all the FREE, 50% & 70% off items you will receive from Willow House.

For my friends that are not local enough to have me come to your house, I will make the same offer when you hold a "Catalog/On-Line" party.  Our website is so interactive, it is a snap for you and your friends to go on line and shop. 

The total of your party can even include OUTLET items!

What are OUTLET items you ask???  They are discounted items that are in the Outlet center on my website.  They are usually discontinued items and are reduced from the original catalog price. They change often so you need to buy when you see something you want.

To see the Outlet items, go to my website 

To book a home or an on-line party, email me at

Trick or treat???

It's PLATE & PATTERN give away Tuesday......Trick or treat? Treat, of course! In honor of this week's spooky holiday, we're giving away an Eclipse Serving Platter! The name may remind you of vampires and Twilight; the metallic silvery glaze reminds us of the night sky on a foggy (maybe haunted!) moonlit night. One thing that's not scary about this tray — it's gorgeous. With just the right amount of shine, it looks lovely serving up a loaf of homemade bread. But how would you dress it up? Would you add a few candles for a stunning and ghostly Halloween centerpiece, or would you try something different?

For your chance to win, just click on the Plate & Pattern link below, leave a comment on the post and let us know how you'd use the tray.

If you prefer to purchase this platter, you can also get any $40 or less item at 50% off  (for a few more days you can also spend $60 and get another item for equal/less value for 50% off...SWEET way to complete your favorite set or finish your holiday shopping)! To order, go to my website  and use my name as Host/Consultant

Operation Write Home

This isn't Willow House related but feel it is important enough to share here...

Sending a Challenge to all my Crafty friends....I just found a great cause that will use up all your scraps and make you feel good at the same time. Operation Write Home is a fabulous project to send Handmade Cards to our troops so they have something to send home to their families. Since they can't exactly run out to Hallmark, this a super idea. They are starting to accept Valentine's Day cards but are always looking for General Themes (Birthday, Thank You, Missing You, Thinking of You, Love, Anniversary...etc)

Now that my Crafting room is finally-officially finished..I am going to start using the thousands of scraps to make cards and send to this Project.

We also still have the GREAT deal on the Magazine Gift Card for only $20.  The receiver of the card gets to choose from 17 magazines and it comes with a Cooler Tote.

Weekend Vendor events

Sooooooooo sorry about the lack of posts this week.  I've been super busy reorganizing my Scrapbooking/Craft/Office and then getting ready for a big weekend.  I had a GOLD BUYING party on Thursday night and then a vendor event Friday night at a local elementary school. 

Shout out to Denham Elementary in Wesley Chapel.  I am a proud new member of their PTA as a Business partner.  Met alot of nice ladies and a few men, sold a few things and introduced Willow House to a whole new group.  LOVE to share Willow House with new people.

Today I was up and out at the crack of dawn to set up for a HUGE event in Wesley Chapel at the Bridgewater Community Park.  My hat is off to Lynne who organized the entire event.  She had a ton of great stuff for the kids and a nice gathering of business vendors.  The weather was perfect. Sunny with a bit of a breeze.  Set up under my tent and enjoyed the shade!  There was a great crowd.  They all loved Willow House and I sold a fair amount off my table.  LOVE the fact that I can use our ON LINE ordering and quickly replace anything I sell.  (Good thing since my DH is sad that I sold the Birdhouse Trio to a lady that HAD to have them for a Housewarming Gift this week!)

I'm now sitting on my couch, in my PJ's "Listening" to the LSU/Alburn football game and surfing the internet.  Just chilling after a busy week and a successful three days.  I've got a TON of new contacts to enter into my data base but will leave that for tomorrow. 

Hope you've had a great week.  Have you done anything interesting?  Done any decorating?  Share.

Last day for $99 Starter Kit for Willow House

At Willow House, we embody grace, warmth, and a bit of magic.

Shopping carts, online ordering, E-commerce, E-outlet and E-Boutiques!

Come join our amazing new company now!!!

Just a quick note to let you know that today is the last day to take advantage of our $99 mini-starter kit, if you or a friend would like to join!


Here’s some info for you:


• Today is the last day for the $99 mini-starter kit.  That’s definitely the most budget-friendly way to start.  The $99 kit has about half of the product and business supplies as the $199 kit, so you can choose which works best for you.  I’m attaching the fliers for both kits.• If you sign up and never do a party, that’s 100% up to you.  But if you sign up and decide to do a couple of parties, not only will you earn back the cost of your starter kit, you can earn free product via our Success Start program for new consultants.  It’s totally up to you.• There is never a minimum and your consultant agreement isn’t cancelled if you don’t sell any/enough.  Our yearly renewal is $35.• We have a 40% discount.• The best way to get a lot of product for yourself is to become a consultant and host your own party; you get the 25% commission (as the consultant) and the hostess benefits (as the hostess).

Tomorrow afternoon we’ll be rolling out the next phase of Willow House — our new online Catalog and Outlet! I invite you to take time to watch a special video message from CEO Bill Shaw. Bill will detail the vision behind Willow House, the “why” and “when” of the important phases and where we are headed in the future:

Coming October 1st, a New way to shop

While at our Willow House convention in July a lot of new and exciting things were announced. One of my favorites is about to begin,

ON LINE Ordering.

Why so exciting you ask?

What that means is that starting October 1st, Anyone, anywhere in the USA can go to my Willow House website and place an order.

No need for a party.

No having to contact me to make payment.

No waiting for delivery.

Need a gift and want to order a Magazine gift card? You are on the West Coast and its the middle if the night for me? NO problem. Go on my website. Place the order. Use a Credit or debit card to pay. That's it. The order will be on its way to you from our warehouse.

This is going to be GREAT.

Having a party with me and Aunt Sally in another state wants to order? Great. Have her go on your "On line Party",
Place her order-Pay- and her order will be shipped directly to her. She doesn't even have to wait until the party closes.

This is going to make our on line Blogger parties that much easier.

If you would like more information on setting up an On line Party or Fundraiser, let me know.

Where has YOUR week gone?

My intention is never to go a week without posting. My Willow House blog is supposed to be informative and fun. Partnering Bloggers send people to my site to learn about the company and our beautiful products. I know when I follow a Blog it is upsetting to go to the site and find an old post.

I have let myself but more importantly my new friends Down. For that I am sorry.

My week has been filled with Three doctors appointments and Three meetings. My home computer hasn't even been turned on this week. My plan is to get back on track. Starting with the next post.

How has your week gone? If you have a blog, how often do you post? Do you write everyday?

Stockpiling Moms giveaway and a welcome to Willow House

Happy Sunday.

If you are visiting from the Stockpiling Moms site, WELCOME!!  I'm so glad you have dropped by to check out my site.  I've been reading the comments and am excited to see so many of you say you've never heard of Willow House.  Let me take a moment to introduce myself and my company.

My name is Cheryl Hinton and I am very excited to share my business, Willow House with you.

I became a consultant with Southern Living at Home in January of 2008. To be honest, I started because I wanted to fill my home with the beautiful items I saw in the catalog while attending my friends party. My husband supported my idea, in fact encouraged me, and I called the Consultant from the party and asked her how to sign up. For the next two years, I had a few parties a month and used all of my 25% commission to purchase items for our home or to give as gifts. I didn’t work very hard and didn’t want anything more from the business. The best part about being a consultant for SLAH was they didn’t pressure me to sell a certain volume each month, or carry an inventory.

Last July it was announced that one of the former founders of SLAH had purchased the company and planned to join his new company, Entertaining at Home, with ours. Everyone was nervous to see what would happen to the company we loved. July 16, 2010 we learned the new vision of the company and on August 1st, 2010--Willow House was born.

I could not be more excited by the products and the vision for the future of our new company. The products are still the same high quality we have come to expect and the business side of things are exploding with possibilities. I am on fire for the new company and very honored to share it with you today. The company is taking Direct Sales into the 23rd century. For a very reasonable investment of $99-$199 you can own your own Willow House business.

1. This fall Willow House Design Consultants will be able to own our business, not just be a rep for someone else. That means I can sell my business or pass it down to my family. That is HUGE.

2. We will be expanding our business across the country via enhanced On-Line ordering. No longer will customers have to be attached to a “Party”. If someone wants to order, anywhere in the country, they can log onto my website and place their order using a credit or debit card. It will be shipped directly to their home.

3. Soon we will unveil our new E-Boutiques. These will be On-line Stores that will feature TOP Name companies that have partnered with us to sell their products to our customers. Best of all, I will receive commission off these sales in addition to our regular products.

4. Next year, our plan is to be able to sell and ship globally. That will increase my business and commission to a whole new level. I already earn 25% commission. Imagine how much that could be selling to the world!

There are other plans for the company and I am excited to see where they will take us. Our main focus is still bringing beautiful products into the homes of customers all over the United States. As Design Consultants we have the pleasure of helping others learn about Decorating style, trends, and how to use what you all ready own to change the look and feel of your home. We will keep you up to date on Style and Trends as they change, through our Free Newsletter sent monthly to our customers.

I’d love to have you join my team. If you would like more information on becoming a Willow House Design Consultant contact me via email at, or through my website (no www). You can also see and order our fantastic products through our on line catalog, also located on my website.

If you are interested in holding your own Design Party or having an On-line party, contact me. I am also interested in partnering with other bloggers to share Willow House with your readers. Contact me for more information.

I also would love to sign you up for our Free Monthly newsletter. You can get signed up by emailing me at or by leaving me a comment here asking to be added to my list.

Good Luck on the ALL YOU giveaway and Welcome to Willow House.  If you would like a subscription, we offer the 18 issues for $20.  Contact me to order.  If you end up winning the Free Subscription, I will cancel your payment prior to submitting it to All YOU.

From my house to yours!

Party weekend

Having a great weekend?

I am.

Friday was my Birthday.  Saturday I had a wonderful get together with some ladies and introduced them to Willow House.  Great group of ladies, lots of laughs, great food, and a wonderful afternoon.

Had a birthday movie date with my husband.  Saw Inception.  WOW.

Today I am going to put everything away.  Put together some Hostess packets.  Catch up on my Bloggers that are following Willow House.  (HELLO)  Contact some new partners.  Get some products ready to ship.  Mail some catalogs. Get ready for the week.

Looking forward to this weeks Willow House calls.  If anyone is interested in learning about Willow House and it's fabulous opportunity, let me know.  I am looking for people to join me and there has never been a better time. 

OH........I almost forgot, I received a box of new products right before leaving for my party yesterday.  I had already packed the car but was so excited, I had to tear the box open and take a few items with me.  The Marisol Wall Clock is just as great in person as I'd hoped.  The new Caitlin Standing Cross is wonderful!!!!  I still have two more Boxes set to arrive on Monday.  WAHOOOOOO.   It's always like Christmas.

What would you order if you had $200 in free products?

I placed an order Sunday night and while I was entering all the fabulous items, I started thinking.  If you could order $200 in FREE products, what would you order?  Would you order the Marisol Clock?  The Birdhouse Trio? What about the Lady Jane Vases?

When someone has a Design Party and invite your friends, not only are you giving them the chance to learn about their design will have the chance to receive free products.  An average Hostess earns $100 in free products, plus one item at 70% off,  plus 2 items at 50% off. 

August Hosts are earning DOUBLE.  I still have a few dates left. Contact me if you'd like more information.

Weekend off

This weekend is a quiet one for a change. Last weekend we had a College Graduation and celebration on Saturday and my Willow House debut party on Sunday.

My step son came to visit on Tuesday for one day and ended up staying till today.  YEAH!!!  Tomorrow I will meet up with some ladies to deliver their SLAH sale items.

School starts Monday.

Next weekend will be busy with a party and follow up. 

Forgive me if I go a couple of days without a post.  It's not because I'm not excited to share Willow House.  It just means all the other stuff gets in the way.  My plan is to eventually do my Willow House as a full time business.  Until then, life will occasionally get in the way.

In the mean time I will leave you with a couple of pictures from our convention in July.  Aren't these some great ideas?  Can't you image how fabulous they would look in your home?  Contact me for details on anything you are interested in.

All You Magazine

Is there anyone out there still paying full price for groceries and other household items?  Not me!  I love to save money and even make a game of it.  It is very exciting to match Sale items with coupons to make the deal even sweeter.  When I can match a BOGO with a BOGO coupon....Score!!!

To be honest, I don't save as much as I used to because we have been trying to eat healthier.  Now that we aren't eating as many "Processed, Boxed" foods, the deals are sometimes few and far between.  My waistline is slimmer but my wallet isn't.  You can find the occasional coupon for Produce but it's rare.  My savings now come from buying BOGO chicken breasts or using coupons for my cereal.  I do still use coupons for cleaning products, bathroom products and other household items.  The other day I scored a $10 Dishwasher Detergent (the new one that has a canister and automatically dispenses your cleaner) for only $1.99 thanks to a half price sale matched with a $3 coupon.

Where do you get your coupons?  The Sunday paper, the internet, magazines?  One of my favorite places is inside my monthly ALL YOU magazine.  If you aren't familuar with ALL YOU, you must go check one out at your local Walmart.  It is a great magazine filled with Decorating tips, Recipes, How to's, Diet & exercise tips but most importantly COUPONS.  I'm talking $30-$50 worth of manufacturing coupons per month.  These are actual coupons you will use.  Many months there are BOGO or FREE items.

I am proud to be a consultant for Willow House for a number of reasons but one of my favorite reasons is because we offer 18 issues of ALL YOU for only $20.  That is $1.11 an issue and a savings of half off the Walmart price and even cheaper than ordering through ALL YOU.  I am excited to offer this deal to my readers and any other blogger that would like to share it with their readers.

If you are interested in placing an order or learning about sharing this deal with your FB friends, Tweet followers, fellow blog readers-email me at to get started.

Having savings!

Weekend is over and now it's less than 24 hours

Less than 24 hours and the Willow House website will be LIVE.  It has been a LONG wait.  I can't wait to see how it looks, all the exciting features, be able to log in and have my name as a Willow House Design Consultant.

What a weekend. Spent all day Saturday rearranging furniture getting ready for my Willow House Open House on Sunday the 8th.  My son helped me move furniture so that my Spare room can act as an actual office.  Really worked hard to get everything in it's place.

Sunday, headed to a friends for her Southern Living at Home sale & Sipada Open House.  She was sweet enough to let me bring some SLAH products to sell.  Sold a few cookbooks but have TONS left for my own Open House.  Offering super deals on discontinued items and gently used Kit items, used for parties. 

Evites sent for Open House and hard copy invites mailed to my neighbors today.  Getting excited!!

Picked up my new Willow House name tag today.  LOVE IT!!!!!!!!! 

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week.  What have you done lately to make your home more comfortable?  If you are local and interested in coming to my Open House, email me for details.

What a week

I've tried to keep my Willow House facebook page current this week (have you friend-ed me on FB yet?) but have neglected the blog.  I'm really sorry.  I'm still recovering from my Oral Surgery and didn't have a great week.

I have 6 boxes of products that were delivered this week.  My new Willow House products arrived.  I'm planning my Open House to introduce my friends, customers, former Hostess, neighbors....etc to all the fabulous new items we offer.  Email me for an invite to join me on Facebook and directions for the Open House.

Tomorrow the plan is to rearrange my spare room to try and make room for an office.  Anyone want to help?

Have you checked out all the great articles on

 the Plate and Pattern blog? 

What ideas would you like to see there?

Count down to the Debut of Willow House.  August 1st the official day, August 4th we log onto our new Website and August 6th the first Willow House newsletter comes out.  If you don't get one check out:

So excited!

If you haven't been checking out the Plate and Pattern blog on my sideboard, you really should be!!! 
 I absolutely LOVE this idea.
  We saw the Monogram idea at the Product Showcase during Convention.  So excited to see all the details and wanted to share it with you. 

101 Uses for Shop and Go Totes!

Aren't these the cutest things?

New Willow House Shop and Go Totes

{Page 54 $19.96 for set of 3}

1.Add a small umbrella, raincoat, hat and colorful set of galoshes to the bag to make a Rainy Day Kit for your kids. They’ll love the fun kit, and you’ll have everything corralled to make getting out the door easier.

2.Stash yarn for knitting or crochet in the bags.

3.Pack treats or classroom supplies in the bag so your child can deliver them and then easily store the bag in a book bag on the way home.

4.Hang on the back of a stroller to hold your purse or other bags while you shop.

5.Hang on the back of a chair to collect plastic bags as you unpack groceries.

6.Store your hammock in a bag between uses.

7.Hang the bag on a clothesline to collect clothespins between uses.

8.Create a Pedicure Tote: Pack flip flops, nail color, your own clean utensils and a magazine for the salon.

9.Make a cleaning kit with wipes, cleansers and microfiber cloths that are easy to transport from room to room.

10.Use as laundry bags in a child’s room.

11.Add Shop and Go Totes to hooks in a child’s room to store toys. Stuffed animals look especially cute peeking out the top!

12.Package your gift in a reusable tote instead of an expensive and disposable gift bag – tie the handles together with a coordinating ribbon to make it extra special.

13.Give yourself an extra hand toting your things from car to house.

14.Give a tote (or three!) as a hostess gift – fold them tiny and tie a note around the outside with a pretty ribbon. We like, “Thanks for all your hard work – let me give you a hand with your errands! I find these reusable bags super handy, and I hope you will too!”

15.Give kids a fun way to help pick up their messes – hand them a tote and watch them get to work filling it with toys!

16.Use a bag to separate smelly clothes after a trip to the gym.

17.Create a Chip-and-Dip Tote for a quick picnic by adding a bag of chips and sealed container of dip to your bag and heading to the park with your kids.

18.Use as library bags – give one to each family member and let them fill ‘em up!

19.Use a tote to keep dirty clothes separate in your suitcase.

20.Use as beach bags.

21.Help separate laundry – use one for whites, one for colors, one for hand-wash.

22.Ditch the heavy luggage and pack your totes for a weekend trip.

23.Take on a fruit-picking excursion and fill with apples or peaches.

24.Keep one in your purse so you’re ready for emergencies.

25.Totes take up almost no room in a suitcase, so add them in case you need more carryon space on your return trip.

26.Use your tote to stash an emergency blanket in the car in case of engine trouble during winter.

27.Keep a Just In Case bag full of adult and child rain gear like ponchos and umbrellas for use while traveling.
