Tracy Koss Tastefully Simple

As a loyal friend when ever any of my friends need help I am so there... And today is one of those days. Now most of our readers work from home and we all know how much of a challenge that is. But for you Mums I can only imagine how much pressure you go through to earn an income. I have found that blogging is a great source of support and a great way to help each other out.

So let me tell you about Tracy Koss who is a Tastefully Simple, Independent Consultant and I meet her back when we lived in Florida. Wow that was 2 years ago. She is awesome - she sends me emails at least once a week and this is shocking because she is one busy gal. And like most of our readers is a Mum. She has a beautiful girl name Ava - and a Fun Fact about Miss Ava - she is a cook in disguise and a gourmet chef in the making because Tracy encourage her in the kitchen.

But first let me pause and share my most favorite Recipe from Tastefully Simple...

Artichoke & Spinach Bottoms Up!Submitted by Cyndie Decowski (NJ)

1 package Artichoke & Spinach Warm Dip Mix
8 oz. softened cream cheese
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
2 cans artichoke bottoms

Prepare Artichoke & Spinach Warm Dip Mix as directed on package with cream cheese and Swiss cheese. Chill 2 hours. Open and drain cans of artichoke bottoms. Fill each bottom with a spoonful of prepared dip. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until heated through. Makes about 15 servings
It's really that easy and one I have been using for a long time now!!

Tracy sent me an email last night telling me about a giveaway she is having. And here is the real easy part all you have to do is like her FACEBOOK page (just click the word FACEBOOK and it will take you to her Fan page - click like and leave the word Evielynne sent me on the page and your good to go).

I know all of my followers will fan her page because we are all about helping each other in any way we can... I so thank you for that and you know all you have to do is ask and I will be happy to help you in any way that I can!! It's in my nature. And anything to keep you Mum's home means the world to me. (I can't tell you the number of her goal but it's an even number) and by the way I have liked and do like...

And so that my readers know I will be signing up as a consultant within the next couple of weeks and I would like to share a part of Tracy's email with you all:

The kits are still the same cost, the promotion that starts on 5/16 will allow you to earn a $50 Visa gift card if you sell $400 before June 30:

Small Kit $89 (enough samples and supplies for 2 parties plus 4 display items)

Large Kit $170 (enough samples and supplies for 4 parties plus 10 display items. You can also do a payment plan with this kit which would allow you to make 3 monthly payments of approx $56.66 per month).

For me it would be hard to do parties because I travel so much but here's the thing. You get a web page for just $10.95 per month to sell and wow that does all the work for me. What's great about this too is that everyone will want to picnic with us because I'm not only a consultant but a shopper too (soon to be a consultant). I will be able to drop off a flyer at every city we encounter for rest stops or visits. So not a bad way to start off.

Tracy is a complete sweetheart and very loyal to her friends and I wish to thank her for donating to my coffee fund... If you read this link you'll see how our coffee fund donation will be used this summer. And Tracy is very much into charity work herself (and Miss Ava)...

do check out Tracy's site - it has so much to offer and Tracy thank-you for coming to me for sharing your business info, we have great readers and many of whom will twitter and facebook this article to show their support for you!! We just rock here...
