Make Sales with Fun

Every day must be something new go and discover it!

One day it was Twitter – very great place for promotion and chatting and just have fun with millions of people. Then somebody from there invited me to join the group Unique~Women~in~Business well It take me about 2-3 days to think about and I jumped in! I’m there only 2 days but I already feel love from those who already there !
Once you are in it’s a great community with promotions each other – making sales and just meet new friends. You shop will be added in MySpace page and the team blog list.
The questions :
1. Why I should joined ?
- Well it’s up to you – either you will sit and complain for no sales or you will try to find some other place to show your creative stuff to the world.
2. Is it free ?
- Well every month you should make one purchase from any shop there – list growing everyday the minimum purchase is $4 – So you pay $4 for the Month of having fun. How many times do you renew - (wink) – better get into the other place where people are interested in buying.
3. Can Sales be guarantee ?
- Well sales people know – your sales can be up and down. But with this team – every person you bring into – must make one purchase from you . Minimum $4 – maximum – who knows ?
4. Do you want to be the part of the team ?!
- Then click here and tell Margarita referred you!
And remember everything must be as a FUN - if you don't get FUN - it's not cool.

*** Our Love Story Part III ***

So here is the last part of our little Love Story :)!

Thank you for reterning and reading this :)

Rita calls me - we got her visa !

Getting back to Seattle in early October, I finished preparing the paperwork and getting a lawyer. I filed for a K1 visa that very month. At the beginning of our relationship we had talked about music, I had sent her a copy of the only real Russian song I knew and loved. I did not even know the name of the composition; she had started crying on the spot. It turned out to be her favorite song since she was a small girl; the title was “A million Roses”. It is about an artist who sold all his belongings to buy a million roses in order to line a courtyard with the flowers and grab the attention of a woman he had fallen for. We never spoke of this again, but when the visa got approved and she arrived in June there was an apartment completely lined in roses for her.
We reunited and planned a small wedding in August; we were married in my mom’s front yard during the hottest part of August. Oh what dreams may bring, yup….we were pregnant by September. Alexcia was born in May the following year; it was and continues to be the greatest adventure of my life. There are hard times and there are good times, but not a day goes by that I do not find a reason to love Rita more and more.

Thank you everybody who found minute to read our story :!)

* * * * P A R T II * * * *

It was three days in when her and her family had to call an ambulance; I had a fever of 107 and was sweating through the bedding within hours. I had developed a case of Russian super strep, of course this was not the best way to create a fist impression. Once admitted to the local hospital they showed her how to give me injections multiple times a day; she fought through her nerves every single time. Who would you do this for if you were by nature adverse to hurting people? As if this was not enough bad luck…things got lost in translation. The antibiotic they had prescribed to me at the hospital was sulpha based, this I have great allergy to. My eyes swelled near shut first of all and remained nearly so for the remainder of my stay in Russia.

One would think that at this point the writing would be on the wall, but she hung in there. I ended up taking so many antihistamines I was falling asleep everywhere we went; in cabs, on boats, in her flat, oh yeah this was really the way I wanted to be remembered!! We took the last boat cruise of the season up the Moscow, past Red Square, Gorky Park, the Kremlin, and into the middle of the city. I had started to nod off about halfway into the trip and she had finally started to show her anger with the situation, she stood me up and suggested we go to the lower part of the boat. No one was near and she kissed me, I saw the ships cocktail bar through the doors behind her and asked “Is anyone tending the bar? I’d love a Stella.” She turned back around to see me with an engagement ring in hand; I asked her to marry me there at the water’s edge. The tears and the resounding “YES”, showed me the answer I had travelled so far for. We spent the next few weeks enjoying each other and celebrating, only to come to the hardest goodbye I have ever had to give.

So Hope Part II was not so long :) come backe tommorow - I'll post the Part III :) Final for the short story :)!

* * * * * * * * To be continued * * * * * * * * *


Well the other day we were sitting and remembering the story of our family. And I thought that it'll be interesting to share with you - my dear friends ... So I asked my Hubby to Wright it ! It came a bit long - although he was trying to make it short as possible - but we will make several part - so come back later to see the end of the story.

* * * Part I * * * *

Seattle - Russia – Dzerzhinsky

Spring of 2003 there was but a bit of time to kill by chatting with friends online, but sometimes that is all the opening fate needs. When taking a small amount of time to help someone turns into a lifelong passion, is it fate, is it chance, is it karma, or is it love?
I was keeping in touch with friends I had met overseas online when a message asking for help with English came across my screen. Sure…what the heck, why not? I did not know this person, not even whether this person was male or female. Just that they needed help, help turned to chat with what I found to be a woman halfway around the world, and then chat turned to friendship. Two and half years later I found myself wondering where the time went, I was not even the type to talk to friends or family on a regular basis. Could it be more?
The only way to find out was to fly, to meet this intriguing woman from Russia. We met in person in August of 2005, it was a strange land, a strange language and yet it felt like home. She was everything all those words had created pictures of and the first days were inspiring, but it was the coming tests that showed what she would mean to me.
* * * * come back later for the PART II * * * *
and while we are making the second part of this story take a look at some of his photos

Russia - Moscow miss you

It happened that I’ve been in Moscow city twice this year – in January and September.
January trip was very fast - only two weeks. September – the whole month was occupied with family friends, my business there, and it seemed not enough time again! Well, now life seems a kind of normal again: Etsy, working, creating, and playing with my baby.
But something is missing… yes, I still miss my Mom and my Sister... Every Friday when I was there we had a girls’ party at home - just only three of us – it was always fun… now only phone calls and ICQ messages.
And as a reminder of my time there, and coming up winter time I made those earrings - Russian winter… and it's really fun - once I listed them one of my friend back in Russia ordered them right away.
