My interview with Fox59 about my experience with Stella & Dot went off without a hitch! Joe came home early from work and we all anxiously sat and waited for the Female Focus segment. I am happy with how it turned out and amazed at how well they pulled it together based on how many times they probably had to edit us!
It is going to air again on the morning show and then it will be available on the website. Once it is updated on the Fox59 website I will be sure to add it here for you all to see as well!
Thanks for all of your well wishes - it was fun receiving emails and phone calls today leading up to the airing of it and afterwards! One of my BFF's called and said she was in her family room by herself clapping when it was over! Ahhhh... how fun?!!!

So I received a call on Wednesday for an interview to take place the next morning in my office! It is for a Female Focus segment on our local Fox 59 News with Angela Ganote. The focus for the segment is the amazing flexibility that Stella & Dot has given me to be able to work with financial success, but also stay at home full time with the kids. What a great opportunity, right?!!
I was thrilled, but all I could think of is that the office is the one space in my house that I have never decorated. The office used to be the guest bedroom, but when my Stella & Dot business took off I had to convert it into my office with random lamps, desks, etc.!
Thankfully I was able to pull off a space that I was proud of and also inspired by - I should have done this a long time ago.
Amelia also has her own little desk space in my office and she was here for the interview as well - oh yeah! I'm very interested in seeing what complete sentences I was able to finish without a colored picture being handed to me by her or her correcting one of my answers. I made the mistake of mentioning that Stella & Dot gave me the flexibility to work in the morning if I wanted and maybe go to the Children's Museum with Amelia in the afternoon - it was just a for instance, but Amelia whipped around and made sure to make note that it had not happened yet!
I'm anxious and a little nervous to see how it all turns out! It should be airing within the next week so I'll be sure to follow up and possibly post the link (if I haven't embarrassed myself too much!).
Stella & Dot has created my true dream job and brought along with it so many wonderful opportunities. The company is growing and we just hired the Sr. Designer from Kate Spade to join Blythe's design team - absolutely amazing! I'll leave you with a great promotion we are currently running till the end of the month (only 6 more days) which gives an additional $100 in free jewels when signing up to become a Stylist. You can contact me directly and I would be happy to answer any questions you may have!

Amelia has a love of all things girly. It was fitting that she received lip gloss, stickers, hair bows, jewelry, and her first jewelry box (she actually received 2!). Hmmm... wonder why she loves jewelry so much?!!!
We kept the celebration going into the evening by heading to a local Greek restaurant with Mimi and Papa.
What fun - the kids love yelling "opa"! Can you see Amelia's excitement?
Amelia was even able to fit in a belly dancing lesson - notice the new shiny red shoes?
It was such a wonderful day and she had a blast! So fun to spend such a special day with friends and family - we love you Amelia!

October was the beginning of the best selling season of the year and it also happened to be my first Holiday season with Stella & Dot. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I had an average of 6 shows booked each month so I stayed busier than normal. It was so successful but more importantly it was fun, fun, fun!
