I know I have been a total slacker lately and have completely neglected my craft blog.  Well, my hubby started working as a temp for a construction company back in July.  The pay was pretty good and we felt really blessed since we had been out of work for almost a year.  The company decided to hire him on permanently and we were thrilled! The only drawback was that they had to cut his pay.

We were struggling with incoming bills and from being finished with school (aka paying back student loans). I knew it would be difficult for me to find a part time job for several reasons.
1. I have no skills and no education.  Ok, I have some schooling done and I'm no dummy.  However, I can't type well, I only finished 2 years of college, and haven't worked for almost 5 years.
2. The amount I could make at a minimum wage job would only be enough to cover the cost of daycare.
3. The thought of working instead of being home with my kids was nauseating.

So, one day I was reading some of my favorite craft blogs and came across a NEW direct sales company called Paparazzi thanks to Michelle over at Someday Crafts

Here is a little bit about Paparazzi and what they have to offer as a company.

They sell fashionable jewelry and accessories at an amazing price. Every product is ONLY $5. The products are so cute and so reasonable that people can't help but buy a ton! Below are just a few of the offerings of the company.

 (Remember, they are only $5 each)

This business is similar to company like Scentsy, Pampered Chef, Mary Kay, Stampin' Up (etc.) only much better. It is a direct sales company that is just getting started, and as I see it, has the potential for so much growth and success. Of all the direct sales companies that hold "parties,"
Paparazzi is, by far, the winner - in my opinion. Here's why I think this:

*The jewelry is inexpensive (everything is $5), adorable and current with the trends. The jewelry literally sells itself. People buy a lot of it because is costs so little!!!! Instead of buying one necklace at a store in the mall for $20 and then matching earrings for an additional $10, a Paparazzi customer can buy 6 pieces of jewelry for the same price!!! SCORE!

*The customer doesn't have to make an order, pay for shipping and wait a week to get their things. They can take it home immediately because the jewelry is on-site. And the consultant doesn't have to do deliveries and follow-up with problems that arise from wrong shipments!

*The commission rate on each piece of jewelry is great (45%). So for every piece of jewelry a consultant sells, they make about $2.25. I'm excited to have a party where $500 is sold because I will get to take home over $225 in one night. At most parties, a consultant will sell between $150-$350 in jewelry. That's $70-$157 for just 3 hours of work. Not too bad!

*"Parties" are actually open houses. Customers come and go at their own time and own pace. I don't have to say much because the jewelry sells itself. Set the jewelry up, and watch women hyperventilate over the great deal on a gorgeous product they want and already use. No high pressure speeches like I've felt at some Mary Kay and Pampared Chef parties!!!!

*The rules of
Paparazzi are very consultant friendly. You can put their product in retail sites. If you already own a business, you can add this to shelves. There are so many fun things I can do to sell this product that I wouldn't be able to do with some of the other direct sales companies.

*Paparazzi is NEW. For those people who join and start building a business, the quick growth they experience now will financially benefit them BIG TIME - especially in a few months (and years). There are less than 750 consultants in the whole company right now. Compare that to a company that has 100,000 consultants who have already done 1,000,000 parties.

*When a consultant books a party, multiple guests want to host a party to receive free jewelry. It has been easy to get parties planned (Because the company is new and not oversaturated the market with their product.) This means more money for you!

*On top of the direct commission a consultant earns when they sell products, they also receive money from people who join their team when they make sales. This is a great chance to be a leader and a friend. There always seems to be promotions for great prizes going on too!

I think that finding
Paparazzi is going to be such a blessing to our family. I plan to benefit from all they offer.

Here is a breakdown to give you an idea as to how Paparazzi has helped my family so far.

I bought their $300 starter pack.
I sold $308 at my first party. (So from here it is technically profit.)
I have averaged a $400 PROFIT per month I have been doing this. (Which is the amount of pay that was cut from my husband's job).
