I Need Your Help............

This year is hard for most everyone I know. Finances are just not there to provide the Christmas presents that we have in the past. So, this year I am teaching my 4yr old daughter a hard lesson in the most kindest way I can.

I want to teach her that Christmas isn't all about getting gifts. I want her to know that it is the thought that counts. That knowing someone is thinking of her is more precious than receiving "toys". Shes a very smart little girl and most all "little things" seem to delight her to no end.
I need your help to make her Christmas THOUGHTFUL. Please help me in doing this by sending her a Christmas Card Snail mail style. She has received two cards already from family members and she really cherishes them.
If you are interested in helping me please send your cards to:

Kaitie Reid
PO Box 127
Morrow, Ark 72749

Random acts of Kindness dont have to be gifts of high dollar value. The best are the simple ones. Paying for someones meal when you stop in to have breakfast or lunch. Buying a stranger a cup of coffee, sending a letter or card just to say im thinking of you, calling your neighbor and offering to pick something up for them while you are at the grocery store, stacking a bit of wood for those that use wood heat, offering to watch someones kids so they can have a few hours to themselves, donating your unwanted items to a shelter for those in need, so many ways to show kindness without expecting anything in return. These are truly the best gifts and are cherished more than you would think.

I really look forward to taking her to the post office each day to see what Thoughts are sent her way! Thank you all so much for helping me make this the best!

Winner of the 2009 Woman Owned Business Grant.....

Investing In Women is a great site with lots of information on all sorts of resources to help you grow your business. At IIW they believe in investing in women through education and appreciation.
I love what this site is doing to help women everywhere! At IIW you will find Articles, Grants, Resources, Networking, Events and more!

I am proud to announce the winner of the 2009 Woman Owned Business Grant!



Investing In Women has awarded a $500 “stimulus package” to a woman owned business, The Underground Railroad To Success. The URS was started by Tanisha Cunningham to teach independence to foster children. This grant will give the non-profit a chance to market their business.

Montclair NJ, November 9, 2009- Investing In Women has awarded their first grant to a woman owned business in the USA. The recipient of the award is Tanisha Cunningham, founder of The Underground Railroad to Success ( The URS is a non-profit that provides a service to foster children aging out of the system to live independently as adults while becoming an integral part of society. This is great for foster children and also has a positive affect on our society as a whole.

“Aging out” is the term used for children who go into foster care, but are never returned to their families of origin or adopted by others. They stay in the system until they turn 18, or graduate from high school, and for the most part, are left to fend for themselves as best they can.

Tanisha Cunningham started URS in January of 2009. A child of foster care herself, she saw the need for foster kids to have additional support when they were no longer eligible for state run services. Soon after her foster care ended, she began a career in child welfare “I wanted to stay there because my passion had always been to give back, because I knew the struggles of living in foster care, and the fear of leaving unprepared, not having a place to go or having the skills to obtain a job.”

Investing In Women ( is a free business resource site, grant program and marketing venue for entrepreneurs. The organization plans to offer several micro grants in 2010, including grants that are not awarded based on gender.

Product/Giveaway Review - Cara Retz ~ Discovery Toys

I entered a Labor Day Giveaway that Cara with Discovery Toys was having during the month of September. She holds frequent giveaways at her blog: Play Smart Blog.

This particular Giveaway, I really wanted. I have a 4yr old child and knew this was perfect for her. I was extremely excited that I had won, but my excitement didn't hold a candle to my daughters reaction when she opened the package.

She took a few moments to look the toy over and then with out being told how to do it she was able to figure out that she could take it apart with the screwdriver that was included. She did ask for a little help when putting it back together. But after the first time all we heard was "I can do it myself!" I'm not exaggerating when I tell you, that she took it apart and put it back together 7 times before playing with it as a train. She was very facinated with the idea she could "fix it" (in her words) all on her own. My husband commented "I can just see the gears turning in her head right now" as she was looking the toy over for the first time.

This is the toy that I won from Cara's Giveaway:

Motor Works Train
Take-apart-and-put-together workable 3-D construction set challenges fine motor skills while boosting brainpower. Finished train actually rolls on rotating wheels! Compatible with Motor Works electric screwdriver. Includes easy-to-follow graphic instructions and manual screwdriver. Not intended for children under age 3 due to small parts.
from 4y & up (K, V) e
Learning Pathways: Thinking Skills, Motor Skills, Exploration

Key Benefits:
Utilize small motor skills and thinking abilities to assemble, take apart, and reassemble a real working toy train
Identify colors, vehicle parts and relative positions
Follow graphic directions
Prompt understanding of parts-to-whole
Challenge small motor skills while boosting brainpower
Use simple tools
Engage in imaginary play!
When I purchase from others in direct sales, like myself, I like to get to know more about them and their business. I asked Cara several questions and she was very kind in answering them for me.

About Cara and Discovery Toys:

*How long have you been with DT? - I've been with DT for about 2 1/2 years, but didn't do much with my business until May of this year and I'm just loving it.

*What made you decide to join DT? - I loved the products! I grew up on DT. My mom had some when I was younger and loved playing with them. Then about 6 years ago, I had a party and really enjoyed it. Then another opportunity came up and I decided to join!

*What other companies do you have, if any? - None, but I do work for my Dad's company, Legacy Images (

*Are you running any specials? - For the month of October, hostess and customers can earn free books and new consultants can earn a free canvas DT tote.

*City and State? - Kokomo, IN

*Hobbies, likes, dislikes? - I enjoy scrapbooking and cross stich, when I have time.

*What is a day in your life like? - depends on the day, usually busy, but fun.

*A memorable moment involving DT (party, customer, experience, etc) - Getting to be an official memeber of my Team Leader's team. I am so excited about this. It has helped me out so much and it's also helped out others in DT get connected to groups, which I'm so glad I could help.

*A bit of advice for other moms (involving DT)? - Give your kids a well rounded play diet. DT is great for this because we involve every area of a child's development. The toys are kid powered, not batterie powered, so your kids get to use their imagination and that is one of the best things. And always play with your children, it's the best investment you can make.

Beauty in the Weeds

Have you found yourself "weeding" lately?

This has different meanings for each of us. For some this is literally pulling weeds in the garden, others this means they are weeding through photos, products, even all the clutter on their desks. And on the other hand some would say that their social lives need a bit of weeding.

Through the years I have come in contact with many people. Some have remained friends or acquaintances for many of those years and others have come and gone for different reasons. I have found my self thinking about my connections, that of personal and professional. I ask myself are these friends that I have stayed in close contact with or have I drifted away from them.

I catch myself thinking back at the "good times" and remembering fun moments. Often asked why I had a smile on my face or what I was laughing about. Those are memories I cherish.

I have, on another occasion, been told that if I want to change my life or grow my business in a different direction, that I should surround myself with those that are of like mind. Well, let me tell you, I have been very blessed with the friends and acquaintances that I have in my life.
To all of you, I say thank you for allowing me to be part of Your life.

My thought for today is that as you are "weeding" through the gardens in your life, that you stop to appreciate the beauty in which that particular weed has to offer. You might find that, that "weed" is the most beautiful flower in your garden after all.

Be kind to yourself and do something good to Satisfy Your Senses!
