Meet Luella

Meet Luella of small town Idaho. We met for the first time on Saturday, the day of her party. We had spoken on the phone and email a few times, but when I learned that she had three boys, we became instant friends. Anyone who has ALL boys knows instantly the kinds of stories we shared. The other cool things about a Modbe boutique here in small town Idaho is you always run onto someone you know. Lulla's SIL, Amy attended the same HS as I and graduated a year after me. Anyway, once when we talked by phone, I suggested Luella have a party, invite over some girl friends and try on the new swim and Modbe's True Rise Denim Jeans in person. It was a GO! Although I am pictured here in my Modbe Jeans, Capsleeve top and Re-Zip Hoodie, I actually wore the burgundy ruffle wrap swim suit with matching burgundy skirt for the first hour or so of the Boutique. Never done that before! It was fun. And the party atmosphere was great; lots of people came out of the dressing rooms to get advice on their own suit. I felt like it kind of took off some of the initial pressure to model what you try on. I'll add another picture of the party and let you know how Luella's party closes in a couple of days.

Scrapbooking meets Modbe

As a Modbe Consultant who loves to scrapbook, I find that I mix the two quite a bit. Who wouldn't want a super cute sign--so much more fun than a computer generated, one-dimensional piece. Anyway, my super creative husband helped me come up with this great poem to remind party goers that booking a boutique of their own is always a great option. I was having trouble coming up with a rhyme for boutique but he quickly came up chic (remember, you pronounce that sheek) which of course rhymes nicely. The rest of the peom was sheer colloboration. The scrapbooked poster, my idea! It isn't the first time I've used my scraping supplies with Modbe. I also made a the box above to hold panty liners which I use at boutiques for hygiene purposes. The liner box this year is made of tin with a lunch box clasp and handle tied with ribbons. So...all that said, who wants to book a modbe boutique today? Not in Idaho? Just comment or go to Modbe's corporate website and we'll get you hooked up with a consusltant in your area.
