My beautiful butterfly princess!

Here is my beautiful Butterfly Princess! I bought this custome in town from Beauty and the Book. These are handmade halloween costumes and just the cutest things! Julie was not fond of the "halo" on her head, but I thought it was really cute.
I took these pictures in my house. I made a little drapped area in the corner of my dinning room. She did really well all things considering and I think the pictures turned out pretty good! I just love the little tutu!
Lane is going to be a police officer for halloween and I'll get some pictures of him this weekend. He's pretty sick and not doing much but laying around. Poor guy!

My Opening Vantel Pearl Party!!


Hello Ladies,


We "dive" for real oysters. You pick the one you want and it is opened right in front of your eyes. A lustrous white, cream, pink, gold, blue or even a rare black Pearl is waiting for you! MAYBE EVEN TWINS!

Invite all your gal-pals to join you -- your mom, your sister, your girlfriends and your daughters, your nieces and cousins! They'll thank you for the experience!

I will show you a wide selection of exquisite Pearl Jewelry settings. Each setting is uniquely designed to highlight your Pearl's natural beauty and luster. (Pearl oysters are only $8.95 when the pearl is set into jewelry. The value of the pearl may be as high as $114!)

Even if you can't attend, ask about placing a pre-party order. Welcome!

At Vantel Pearls, we import our own Pearl Oysters, which are grown exclusively for Pearls. They are from the South Pacific, an area renowned for the most valuable Pearls in the world. These are pearls of the absolute highest quality, yet we keep our prices for the pearls low because we are the largest importer of Pearl oysters in the U.S.

Our settings are Sterling Silver, 14 KT Gold & Vermeil (a sterling silver and 14kt gold combination.)

The Home Party catalog pictures are representations only. YOUR PEARL is what makes each piece unique!

If you'd like to check out our Online Boutique for some unique and trendy pieces, go to my website (below.) Boutique pieces do not require any additional pearls to be set into them.


If you can't attend, we can open an oyster for you at the party, or you can have a 6.5mm white pearl placed into any setting. Or you can simply choose an itemfrom the Boutique! PLEASE DO NOT PLACE YOUR ORDER ONLINE! Give your order to your hostess.

Payment accepted is:
Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express
Cash (of course) and checks made payable to Danielle Woods
Hope to see you there! 

Other services:

Do you have an unmounted pearl at home? We can set it into one of our jewelry settings at no additional cost beyond the setting price.

Do you know someone who is getting married? We have a wonderful Bridal program to help the bride have genuine pearls at a reasonable cost.

Are you looking for a unique fundraiser? We can help you there too!

Vantel Pearls is an established company that is growing!

We are hiring demonstrators everywhere! Who do you know? It could be worth $25 in free jewelry for you!

Lane and TomiJo

Last Saturday night the phone rings and I answered it and this cute little voiced asked if she could speak to Lane. I of course said yes and passed the phone off to my son. He said hello and his face lit up when he realized it was TomiJo. She is a girl from his class that he came home from school talking all about. Except when he first came home he wasn't sure of her name. It was "Tom and Joe" and finally we found out it was TomiJo. She invited Lane to come watch her cheer at the bulldogs game today. He was very excited about her calling him and after they were done talking her mom asked to speak to me. She told me they were getting ready for bed and TomiJo mentioned she hadn't talked to Lane in a couple of days (she wasn't in school that Friday) and would really like to speak to him.

So today I took Lane and Julie to Elysian Fields to see TomiJo cheer. We also have some family that plays on the football team so it was nice to get out of the house. TomiJo was so excited to see Lane when we got there. She ran over to tell her mom that Lane had come to see her cheer. Prior to this game, I had never met her mom, only spoken to her on the phone. It was nice to put a face with a name! The two kids walked around together after the game was over. A friend took some pictures (my camera was in the car) and promised to send them to me on facebook. I did get this one of them with my cell phone.

Lane says he likes the ribbons in her hair. He tells me all the time how pretty she is and how he really really loves her. So, there it is, my son and his first crush (besides Jessica of course).

She is a beautiful little girl and I'm glad to see my son has such good taste. His father is quite proud too!

The sun is finally shinning!

I am so glad to see the sun today! It has been so nasty here for the last week! I was begining to feel nasty and almost depressed. The weather is cooler and I know the fall is coming. I dislike the cold weather but the cool weather is nice!

Today Julie and I did our grocery shopping. I was very happy because I went to Walgreens and bought two bags worth of stuff (two packages of diapers, 3 things if dental floss, 2 revelon pedi-eggs and 8 cans of soup) and it only cost me 1.35!! I used a bunch of Register Rewards and coupons. I was so proud of myself! I didn't do as well at walmart (still lots of coupons) but not that great a deal. Here's to being frugal!

I have also made the leap to become a Vantel Pearl Demonstrator. I'm very excited about this. We've been very blessed becaused I've been able to stay at home, but we could really use the extra income. Vantel Pearl will allow me to create my own schedule, be home with my kiddos and hopefully bring in some extra income. Work has been really slow because of all the rain here in North East Texas. We want to put away some more money for Christmas and we would also like to continue our debt snowball (Dave Ramsey). I just received his Financial Freedom program book and plan to read that as well.

Today was just a beautiful day and I'm so glad to see the sun shine again. I've missed the sun so much!

Wonderful Surprise!

My husband came home bearing gifts when he came home from work on Friday!! I was so surprised!

He brought me a dozen roses, which were absoluately beautiful and smelled SO sweet! He also bought me a gift certificate to get a manicure and a pedicure! I was shocked! I have never had a manicure or a pedicure!!!

I was able to go on Saturday to get my very first pedicure and manicure! I went and picked out some pearly pink color (Sation nail polish, 54- pink pink). I painted a pretty flower on my big toe nails! It DID tickle my feet but I did the best I could not to kick the poor guy in the head. It was so wonderful. It was totally awesome to spend an hour being pampered!

I such a wonderful hubby! I couldn't of asked for a better present. It was really great to know I'm appreciated for all that I do. I *know* he/they apperciate me, but it is nice to be reminded :)
