Happy Halloween!!!

In our town we trick or treat today. It is because tomorrow on Halloween is one of the largest Halloween Parades around. They want to make sure the kids can trick or treat and go to the parade. So hear I sit listening to my 3 1/2 yr old whining about it is taking too long for her cousin to come over. Mind you he is 10 yrs old and just getting out of school. The kid is already high on sugar from her parade at daycare and has not taken a nap and to top it off oh yeah there will be cake tonight for my sister in law's birthday. So if anyone is reading this and wants to swing by and take this kid feel free, I do not know how much of her whining I can take. But the little devil is sooo darn cute. I would not tell her what she was going to be until today so all she knew was her costume was white and red. She was a devil/angel. Everyone who knows her and that has seen her so far especially her oh so patient teacher saw it and said that is the perfect costume for her. And that it is. This morning Perfect little Angel .... ok mommy, yes mommy.... and then she came home from her party at school and the devil arrived. I do not get too worried about the candy because I will bag it up and bring it to my brothers tomorrow so he can give it out to the kids in his neighborhood. I sneak it in his bowl and then I accidentally forget to bring her candy home from there after we trick or treat again. I am such a mean mom. But at least this way she gets good use out of a ridiculous over priced costume.

A Little About Me

Let me explain a little about Anna Bella Jewels. My Name is Andrea. I live in NJ. Back in I believe it was March 2008 I decide to start my own business and sell Fine Silver Jewelry. My boyfriend kept telling me this for months and I just kept blowing it off saying NAH I'd rather work for one of those "direct sales" jewelry companies. Well one early Saturday morning I woke from a deep sleep with the name Anna Bella Jewels. So I went online typed it in and it was available. So the leg work began. I am not even close to talented enough to make my own jewelry nor do I even have the time so I found awesome manufactures in Europe and the United States to create my collection. My awesome boyfriend put hours in to design my logo and website.

Back in September I thought it would be fun to start home parties. So with the help of some friends that sell tastefully simple, Mark K and Partylite we had my first successful party. It was so much fun!! And from that point on I have been busy busy promoting, networking and having some great parties. What sets me aside from the other Jewelry companies is that I own the company so I do not have to pay commissions to Reps which means my jewelry can be more reasonably priced and I also have FREE standard shipping on online orders. When I do home parties I am "cash and carry" which goes over great with the guest. Since most are used to parties that you have to wait a week or more for your items.

Well as I stated in my first blog post I am new at this whole BLOG thing so I will try to do the best I can to make it interesting to all.

Here are a few best sellers from my website:

I Finally Did it

Ok so I finally did it. I decided to jump into the whole Blog world. This could be more comical than anything since I am not really a good writer. I will be posting things about my Jewelry Company. New products, updates...etc.
Once I figure this out I will hopefully be more interesting to come back and read. So don't forget to come back and check what is going on.
