Welcome TCB Readers!! 2 More Ways For You To Win

Hi and Welcome to Please Use Your Words. I'm so thrilled that Kim's throwing a Mystery Hostess Uppercase Living Party for all of you fabulous TCB readers, but more about that in a bit. I'm Torreh, a busy SAHM mom with 3 kids, old scrappy friend of Kim's, and a Senior Demonstrator with Uppercase Living. I've been with UL for almost 4 years and love love love it. I get to work with lots of fun people, bring fun, inspiration, humor and beauty into my customers' homes, represent two amazing product lines and work around my kids' school and activity schedules and my husband's business travel. For those of you aren't familiar with UL, here's a little bit of info, as well as details on two more ways to win, in addition to the giveaway on TCB.

What Is Uppercase Living
Uppercase Living is a home party company that started just over 5 years ago to provide decorative vinyl lettering and embellishments. Our expressions are designed to be removable without causing any damage to the surface underneath. Not only do we have hundreds of exclusive designs, you can create your own custom pieces using any of our 50+ fonts and colors. One of our most popular products is our line of Erasable Chalkboard and Dry Erase vinyl. You've seen these all over the web and now you can have them in your home inexpensively, without messing around with chalkboard paint. And we can create large custom wall art from your own images!! The possibilities are endless with our Photo Prints. They are beyond cool and can be used in so many different ways, like all of our vinyl products.

Just in the last year, Uppercase Living has adopted the motto: Live A Life Inspired, striving to add inspiration to the lives of our customers, staff and demonstrators. A big part of that is our relatively new line of jewelry,  Blume , which lets you take your inspiration with you. Each piece is a story that can help you tell yours. Whether it's a stamped charm or several, beads that help single moms halfway around the world support their families, or a cute little Honey Badger that reminds the wearer to Stand Strong, our jewelry is uplifting, personal and sentimental. Just in the 4 months since it was introduced, there have been countless stories of our pieces bringing strength, support and smiles to people all around the world.

What Can UL Do For Me?
There are countless ways to use Uppercase Living vinyl to decorate your home, create projects and gifts, get organized and more. Just look through the topics here for some inspiration. You'll find more on my website and my Facebook photos.  Your imagination can take off and create so many different things with our products. As an Uppercase Living hostess, you can host a live or online party and earn rewards of free products when your friends place orders. And as an Uppercase Living demonstrator (like me!) you can earn money by sharing our awesome products with your friends, family and community (and by community I mean the entire United States and Canada). All you have to do is decide if you want a little (buy a few things), a lot (host a party) or ALL OF IT (become a demonstrator on my team).  To find out more about hosting or joining Uppercase Living, just contact me for more information. Our February specials are fantastic if you're considering either; you can sign up for as low as $59 or even FREE!

How Do I Win Stuff?
After you enter Kim's giveaway for the two part alphabet, leave me a comment and you'll be entered to win the expression you see here:
Yours will be in Berry Red and Shoreline Blue. Get an extra entry when you send me a friend request on Facebook and let me know that you've come over from TCB.You can enter until Jan. 31. I will post the winner's name on Feb. 1.

What About the Mystery Hostess Party?
This is the best part of all! If you place an order on my site and add it to the TCB Mystery Hostess party, you will be entered to win all of the hostess benefits from the party.  There's no limit to how much the rewards will be. To place your order do the following:
  • Create a user name and add your items to your cart (I'm happy to help with custom designs and questions). Don't forget that EVERYTHING is Buy 2 Get 1 FREE until Jan. 31
  • Associate your order with the TCB Mystery Hostess Party before you check out and submit your order.
  • Check back here for updates on on how high the rewards have gotten. When I close the party, I will choose one person who ordered to receive all the benefits. I'll post the winner's name here and contact her to discuss spending her winnings.
Notice the headboard? It's vinyl, too!
I'm so glad you stopped by. I know Kim's readers are a crafty, creative bunch. I think you'll love creating your unique visions with Uppercase Living products. Of course, you can always do what I do: copy someone else's great design and make it the perfect addition to my own home.

Surprise Your Sweetie On Valentine's Day!

I have a confession to make: by the time Valentine's Day rolls around, I'm pretty much over it. I've barely put away my Christmas and Hanukkah decorations when it's time to plan for my husband's birthday on Feb. 4. I also have to contend with a birthday party for my youngest, whose birthday is Feb. 27th. Every year, my poor husband kind of gets ignored on Valentine's Day because I've had it with decorations, celebrations and gifts (thank goodness he's easily pleased by a giant box of chocolate), and don't really feel like spending a lot of money. Not that I would be upset to find a blue box with something sparkly in it for myself on Valentine's Day...but that's a whole other blog.

So, assuming that at least some of you are like me in that you'd like to surprise your Valentine with something sweet and sentimental but also easy and inexpensive, I came up with a few Uppercase Living designs. These can go on your bathroom mirror so s/he sees that you remembered first thing in the morning. They are also ridiculously inexpensive, especially with our current Buy 2, Get 1 FREE special. Of course, you can change fonts, colors, lettering in your own pieces, but you won't go wrong with either of these:

Of course, the possibilities are endless with this idea. You could make your mirror message the first (or last) clue in a Valentine's Day secret adventure or even use UL lettering to put a big giant proposal on the mirror (the ring embellishment is on me for anyone who wants to do this!). Of course, at these prices, you can do one for each of the kids, too. 

Another way to surprise your Valentine is by putting an expression on her car the night before. Here's one with a frame around it along with initials. How fun to drive around town knowing that someone loves you! Don't be surprised to see her friends' husbands or boyfriends giving yours dirty looks for making them look bad. And you didn't even have to spend a fortune! 

Another advantage to an early-in-the-day Valentine's surprise? Your Valentine will know right off the bat that your loving gesture must be reciprocated and has all day to come up with something wonderful enough so he can save face. Of course, he'll say he had it planned all along. That's what they always say!

UL Tip: Don't forget a bottle of Mistick to make your glass installation much easier. Allow enough time for it to dry!
