Sharing Smell Goods' Brochure

Who was I kidding, when I said that I would share the brochure last week? Last week was very busy, but ta-da, this is the brochure that I am very proud of. With other things going on with the business, and getting the details just right, it took some time for me to design the brochure. I got them printed up for free! Gotta love Vista Print.

Did you know depending on the browser that you use, Vista Print has a free page and a full price page? Yeah, I discovered that one day. When I uploaded in Safari, the products were free or discounted. Went over to Mozilla, full price. But wait, another discovery! Sometimes Safari will not have free products either, but Vista still has free or discounted product. You can only get to these products via special links. I found this and this. Maybe these links can benefit you. Happy marketing!!!

R&R Plus FUN!

My family and I just stepped foot into our home. There's no place like home! But going away is lots of fun. We just returned from the grand Disney Wonder cruise ship. Amazing! Disney is nothing but amazing in everything that they do. The shows were grand. The cruise personnel were outstanding, we met some remarkable people from around the globe. The Bahamas was laid back, we got personnel attention from our friend's brother;Disney's island, Castaway Cay was just bliss. The food!!!! Oh, the food!! The pampering!! Oh, the pampering!! It was our first time taking a cruise, but certainly not the last.

While away I checked my emails. Orders!!! I love it! I travel often, but I love getting back into my routine. So starting tomorrow it is back to the grind:order supplies, process orders, ship orders, do end-of-month reports, update my online networks,etc.

I was so busy packing and cleaning my home last week, I forgot to share my business brochures with you. I will post, hopefully tomorrow.

Off to bed......
