I told you earlier today that I had a busy last week. Not much sewing was done but I did spend a lot of time with Kalissa.
I told you earlier that she was planning on picking up a second job and that the job was to be a LuLaroe consultant. When I mentioned this before someone wrote in the comments that she preferred not getting an infomercial. Heads up to that person and anyone else reading…I write about what I am doing and what my family is doing all the time. This is simply another thing that is happening in our lives. Someone else once wrote that we are a nuclear family. We are. When one tries something, we all pitch in to help make it a success.
So last week was my turn to pitch in. Kalissa got her inventory in. There was a lot. All of it had to counted and compared to the invoices. All of it had to be checked for flaws or defects. About the time that all the pieces came, Carver got sick. Carver comes first so she ended up having a tough time getting things going. She had already booked an on line sale date of Sunday so she knew on her own, she’d never make it. Kelli ended going to Kalissa’s on Wednesday and I went after childcare on Wednesday for a few hours.
This is what she put together for a lighting studio. All the items had to be photographed. Let me tell you, dressing a manikin in XS shirts while with static cling is abound is not as easy as it sounds. Kalissa doesn’t have a big house so all of this is in her basement.
For some of things, outfits were put together…all needed accessories. We’ve happily picked some up from various thrift stores.
After all the pictures are taken Kalissa spends a lot of time editing and loading the pictures.
On the main floor they have a spare room that they have turned into what they call the “LuLa” room. Check it out….Craig was super helpful and built the clothing racks.
Kayla ended up helping Kalissa Saturday evening…I did too. Then on Sunday Kelli and I helped in the afternoon. I don’t know how it happened but by Sunday late afternoon everything was ready and loading for the sale. The whole house was full of anticipation. It was hard for Kalissa. She’s spent a lot of money investing in the clothes with the hope that someone will want to buy them.
Sunday night Kelli and Kalissa were close to the computer answering questions from customers….trying to find things that would match.
The happy news…her sale went well. She still has things posted. You can see the items here if you’re interested….You will have to request to join her page. Once you do that you can go to photos and then albums. That’s where the goodies are.
I was so impressed with how Kalissa did. It was so much work. Right up to the wire I wondered and worried about how it would go for her. She passed with flying colors.
We’re a unique family. We aren’t content doing just one thing. Nursing is wonderful and Kalissa loves it. She likes helping people feel good whether that be through clothing and LuLaroe or through nursing. For a 21 year old she’s really trying to set the world on fire. Watch out LuLaroe world…here she comes!!
