Work in Progress Album

This handy 12x12 binder album comes with a protective case. Before I had an album like this, I would just use a regular album to store projects that I was working on, which resulted in a lot of wear and tear on the albums. It was also difficult to change layouts around. But since I've been using this, it's been a lot easier to keep all my projects in order and I even combine different projects into the album. For example, I'm working on our family album for 2010 and one for one of my children. I can have all the projects together and then when I'm done, I just put them into a regular album and it is ready for viewing.


Hi All,
I'm sorry I haven't posted in such a long time. I've really been struggling with my business. I live in such a small town and know very few people here. I had an open house on June 30th, and really put a lot of effort into it. It was mentioned three times in the local paper, and I was sure it would be a success. But when that day came only two people showed up. I was so discouraged...I just didn't do anything with the business for a week. Then I called my upline (who was there to support me for that day) and we talked about my options. I hate to just quit the business, so I think I'll just be content to be a junior consultant for awhile.

Peanut is doing well...he's got such long legs now and can jump so high. It's fun to play "keep away" with him. He's been going to work with me and he's learning to be more sociable instead of barking non-stop at people when they come into the shop.

Hope you all had a nice Fourth of July and that your summer is going well :) Take care!
