Again it has been a while!

I see it has been almost a year since my last post yet again, oops! I have been so busy with everything I just don't get on here much. I am still in school, in my last semester now. I am so ready to be done. And call me crazy, but I will not be using my degree. I am going to stick with this crazy Mary Kay thing after all! I have grown so much since becoming a Consultant, and it has changed my family's lives. I am currently in Director in Qualification and will be a Sales Director by the end of March, hopefully sooner! 

My kids are getting so big! Bruce is 9 now and Brooke-Lynn is 5. Seems like just yesterday they were babies! This has a lot to do with why I am sticking with Mary Kay. As a paralegal, I could look forward to maybe $50,000 per year at the most, especially here in SC. As a Mary Kay Sales Director, I will be making much more. Plus, I have already touched so many lives, and in turn it is changing the way I look at the world. There are so many amazing women out there who no longer dream. They feel that the day in and day out same old routine is the only choice they have. I have a team of amazing women from all different backgrounds, all walks of life, some married, some single, some Moms, some college students. It is amazing what each woman brings to Mary Kay. 

Not sure what else to update on. I know there will be HUGE updates to come. I do still dabble in the baby shower items, but only on an as-requested basis. If someone contacts me to place an order I will fulfill it, but I am not actively trying to make a living off diaper cakes. That was stressful. It is something I love, but I only have so much time in a day, so now it is a hobby. With Mary Kay, I do not have to make the products so it is easy LOL. Plus, they treat us like princesses. I will be attaching some pics of my journey thus far. Enjoy!

If you would like to check out my website, feel free. You can do virtual makeovers, browse the products, and learn more about becoming a consultant. Wendy's Mary Kay (link opens in new window)

This is me in February 2012 and then again in June, after using Mary Kay products for only a few months. HUGE difference!

Trying out the Pink Cadillac - yes, they are real, and our unit has one!

Wow, it Has Been a While!

Well, I am definitely sorry for being gone so long! It has been forever since I last posted and a LOT has happened since then! Some of you may have noticed my website is currently down. I have just suspended it temporarily because I am now in college! Woohoo! I am going for my Associate's Degree in Public Service, majoring in Paralegal Studies. I am actually working as a paralegal now, but very part time. :-) So, I definitely do still make my diaper cakes, washcloth favors, and even have some great new items that I am very excited about! Even though my website is suspended for the time being, I have my Facebook fan page, where you can see all of my new items (which you MUST check out, they are great!) or contact me regarding an order. Become a fan today!

I also have some other new and exciting news! As of last month I am an Independent Beauty Consultant with Mary Kay! In February, I was invited to a Mary Kay party by my uncle's finace Shelby. I was definitely reluctant to go, as I knew they were just going to be pushing old lady makeup on me, but I went for Shelby, and I drug my Mom along too. WOW! I was floored when I walked in and saw the Mary Kay lady, she was about my age! I seriously always thought Mary Kay was a bunch of old ladies in red lipstick (hey, I am just being honest!). I had such a great time and was truly intrigued by the amount of money this lady makes. PLUS, she is driving a brand new Equinox for free, because she earned it through Mary Kay. I went home and Mary Kay was definitely on my mind. I even talked to my husband about it and told him I was thinking about giving it a shot, he was actually all for it so that gave me hope! I had set up a day for the Mary Kay lady to call me, because I was interested in learning more. So she called me a couple days later and I decided to go for it. Problem was, I did not have the $100 to start. I told her I would call back when we got our tax refund. And I did. So I plunged in, and when I got my started kit a few days later I was absolutely amazed! There is hundreds of dollars worth of things in the box, plus a very nice leather Mary Kay bag. WELL worth the $100 investment!! Now I am absolutely in love with Mary Kay and call me crazy, but my degree will now be my backup plan. I will graduate next May and I am maintaining a 4.0 GPA so it will be a good backup plan, but I honestly plan on making my living with Mary Kay. That Mary Kay lady is now my Director, and guess what???? We became a pink Cadillac this month!!!! I am so excited, she is now waiting for it to be custom made and ready for her to pick up! Anyways, I have rambled on enough about that (and in case you are wondering, I easily make more in a week with Mary Kay than with my Diaper Cakes by Wendy). If you want to check out my website, learn more about the Mary Kay opportunity, host a themed party, check out the hottest Spring trends, or get a virtual makeover, click here!

Sooo, how are you guys doing?

It's Been A While

I have made a few changes to my blog - I hope you all like it! I know I have not been around in quiet some time, unfortunately we have not had the internet since April of last year. We moved in April and did not find out until AFTER we moved that no high speed internet was offered there except Hughes Net, which is expensive!

Anyways, we are moving in with my Sister in law next month, so we can share bills and all save money. We will be saving up while living there to purchase our own house. I am SO excited!

I am also starting school this summer to become a Paralegal, which I am super happy about! I will be working on my Associate's Degree in Public Service.

I do have tons of new baby shower gifts and favors that I need to show you all - it has been so long, but I have been taking and making orders, doing craft shows, and more. I am looking forward to being active on my blog once again - I have missed it!

Let me know what you think of the new look! And here (bottom of this post) is one of my new products - many more to come! These are long stem roses made from baby socks! I have not yet added them to my site, but I will be soon.

And here are some of my popular and important links, since I haven't been around I will repost them. :-)

My website, Diaper Cakes by Wendy - where you will find all of my products and you can also order my items from here.

How to make washcloth lollipops - washcloth lollipops are my most popular favor and my how to article is the most clicked link on my blog, so I thought I would repost for all interested!

Wow, Look at these cakes!!

Well, considering I make diaper cakes, you could probably guess that cool and different/unique cakes would interest me. Recently, I was contacted by Matt, and he likes neckties - a lot. Anyways, he showed me this article he wrote on these necktie cakes, they are so awesome, you HAVE to check them out! I have included one of his pictures (original sources can be found on his article), but you will have to visit his article at this link to see the rest of the pictures! These make the perfect idea for Father's Day, which is very soon, don't forget. Enjoy!

Lovey Blankets!

This is something new I am going to start making. Sorry, I will not be offering them online (unless you REALLY want one from me LOL) but I will be making them for the craft shows I do (that is, if there is an interest in them). This is the first one I have done, I like it, but I want to know what YOU think! :-) Also, I would love to hear what you would pay for one like this (this is yellow but I will be making cuter ones LOL) at a craft show or in a boutique. This one is a lovey size, it is 15 inches by 12 inches, not counting the tassels. If you count the tassels, it is about 19 inches by 16 inches. I would like to do more in this size, and then do some in a size for a car seat.

Why Are People So Rude?

Seriously. I am a nice person (most of the time) and lately I have had SO many people being rude to me for no reason at all. Makes me feel like I have done something wrong, but I have not. What is wrong with people??

Tiffany McDavitt, Lynn McDavitt, Chris & LaDonna

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you may remember the very first time I had a problem with someone stealing my pictures. The person is from Bowling Green, Kentucky and she posted on Craigslist saying her name was LaDonna and she had pictures of mine on her Craigslist ad. Her email address was and I called her, from her phone number on her Craigslist ad and she wanted to act stupid like she had no idea what I was talking about. She really pissed me off.

Well, I am still having problems, and so is Linda. They ordered from her and then tried to open a PayPal case saying there was unauthorized activity in their account, trying to get their money back, a whole $2. They need to get a life seriously.

This person or people have gone by a lot of names. Tiffany McDavitt, Lynn McDavitt, Lynn Johson, and LaDonna.

If any of you read this, you are NO LONGER welcome to order from either me or Linda, if you do your money will be refunded and you will be ignored.

Find something better to do with your time than be a thief and take advantage of people.

Cool Washcloth Lollipops!
