New picture frame and Vemma update

Here is the find that I was telling you about last week. It's part of an old door with a shelf attached at the bottom. My plan is to put family pictures behind the window panes. I got an assortment of red, white and blue shirts for everyone to wear and I'm doing a family photo session on Saturday. I have to get it done while Chad is still here. I thought that red white and blue is perfect, not only because Chad is a soldier now, but because it will look great in the family room. Pretty dang cute, I think! I'll share pictures later this weekend.

I started taking Vemma 2 months ago and I told you I'd update you on how it's working for me. I can honestly say that I haven't remembered to take it every single day, but I do notice when I don't because I'm tired and just seem to be a bit scatter brained, so I always regret forgetting. I like to take it with breakfast because it starts my day off right. I do have more energy, I need less sleep at night and I don't take naps in the afternoon anymore. I get far less headaches, I feel like my thoughts are more organized and I'm more productive, plus I've lost 4 pounds through all the holiday eating and it's not even made for weight loss. All of these things have blessed my life. I am the BIGGEST skeptic and I really didn't want to try it when my dad showed it to me, but now I can't imagine not having it. I function in everyday busy mom life so much better now. I love it!

Here are some testimonials of some people that my dad started on Vemma for anywhere from a few weeks to 2 1/2 months...

  • Dave...has more energy and requires less sleep.
  • Matt...who is training to be a professional baseball picture has more energy and notices more clarity in his thoughts and focus.
  • Derral...no more 2:00 naps
  • Jared...major burnout from working 2 jobs. He has more energy and alertness.
  • Ron (my dad)...needs less sleep, clarity and focus in his weekly service work
  • Ruth...has struggled with the ability to take care of her son who has leukemia, now she feels more in balance and leveled out so she can better take care of him.
  • Coleen (my sister)...super busy with running in home daycare, has a special needs child, delivers pizza at night, and going through foster care classes. She has way more energy, and notices when she doesn't take it because she can't focus properly. When she's on it she gets more tips because she isn't getting lost delivering pizza so she can get more runs in. :o)
  • Kathleen (my mom)...she is a diabetic and has weight issues often associated with that disease. She has lost 16 pounds, sleeps much less, more energy, her coloring is improving so much. Her lips are no longer purple and her feet and ankles look so much better. She also has not had problems with sleep apneia. That is huge because it's scary to stop breathing while you sleep. Just the improvement with my mom makes me teary because I worry so much about her. This is truly a gift and I am so grateful that I didn't let my stubbornness keep me from trying this product.
  • Vemma has mangosteen fruit, xanthone-rich mangosteen pericarp extract, 12 essential antioxidant vitamins, over 65 plant-source, major, trace & ultra-trace ionic minerals, whole-leaf aloe vera & green tea. That's a lot of good stuff packed in this little bottle. Each box comes with 30 bottles to last you a month. They have bigger bottles that you can mix, but the V2-30 pack of individual bottles are so much easier and I think their cute too! It has a 100% money-back, risk-free, empty-bottle guarantee and it's FREE to sign up as a member. What could be easier than that?!

If you have any questions you can call my dad's 1-800 # (he's had that number for years) that way it won't cost you any money to call. He just knows more about it than I do. I just know I like it and I need it...ya'll know I'm a simple girl. :o) Ron Peters 1-800-736-7198 or email him a rpeters2@cox.net Here is a link to my website (you get a website free when you sign up) and also to the testimonial website to see how it's helped other people. I know that plenty of people don't care about any of this, but I've gotten some emails about it so I know that some of you are interested in feeling better in a healthy all natural way. I also put my dad's phone number and email addy on my side bar so it will be easier to find once this post scrolls down into the archives. Thanks for listening to me ramble.

Kim J...Thank you for commenting on my previous post. You commented a few months ago and I followed your name to the website you set up to honor the life of your son. That night I sat here looking at his sweet pictures and listening to the music. I cried and sobbed for the better part of an hour. I couldn't even collect myself enough to go to bed that night. I can't imagine the loss you must feel and how hard the holidays have been for you without him. I've thought of you many times over the past 2 months, so thank you for letting me "see" you again.

P.S. I still can't comment on typepad blogs...not even from Mark's computer...so sad! :o(

Chris said...

With small boys still in my house my frames have been mostly destroyed...They are growing so I need the great ideas to display my family once again....
You are an inspiration to my inner decorating wanna be!!!

Coleen said...

Jolene, I'm glad you finally put vemma on your website. I gave it to one of my daycare Mom's enough for 3 days and she came back and said I want that stuff, how do I get it. She already had clarity of mind and alertness. She ordered some yesterday. We got it from the warehouse today. It's the only thing that has ever worked for me. I already saw the picture frame at your house. It looks fabulous by the way

Kim said...

Love, love, love the shelf. That is so cool. I can't wait to see the pictures in it.

Briana said...

Very cute frame! Can't wait to see how the pictures turn out! Bet they'll look great.

No sign of the package yet, I'll let you know when it arrives!

That is a way cool shelf!! We actually have the original door that goes from our family room into our kitchen out in the garage and it has glass windows in it. That would be so cool to recondition and do something decorative with!!! I can't wait to see your family pictures. They sound very cool. The vemma sounds interesting. I've read about it on your blog but, due to past experiences with my husband signing up for stuff like this that costs us a fortunate, I'm always skeptical too. I'll check out your website, though!

Chickenbells said...

Yay...I'm so glad you feel better...I just started taking mangosteen myself, in conjunction with Noni juice (both at CostCo) and am really loving life...I notice quite a difference when I forget to take either!

Love the window, and I can't wait to see the finished project!

Beautiful frame Jolene! Can't wait to see the pictures in it! You are so talented! Looks like you and your family had a wonderful Christmas, thanks for sharing all of the wonderful pictures! Congrats to Chad and Sandy - they are a beautiful couple!! Good job on the weight loss over the holidays - I am afraid to step on the scale, especially after eating all those candy cane kisses!! Hope you and your family have a wonderful New Years celebration!! Take care, Amy =)

Julie said...

Yea, you finaly got the website up on Vemma. For all you sceptics out there, this is finally it. They couldn't think of a better way to distribute out vitamins & minerals than in a liquid form, it's awsome.Every one needs to try it you have nothing to lose. My new years resalution is to take care of myself and be in better health what a better way to get it started. Happy New year!

Jenn said...

Ok, LOVING the shelf!What a great idea!! It's incredible when you can alter things like that! and up against that wall it really "pops"!

Kim j said...

Thank you for thinking of me over the months i really do appreciate it and the frame/shelf is just beautiful.

We had a nice christmas, it was very hard on us, but I tried to get the crying over in the morning because i did not want to ruin the day for my other lil boy. He had a blast and that made me smile so much.

Please don't be sad for us, Jacob was an amazing child with such an amazing life. I would always say they forgot to tell him that he was born with differences. Yes four years with him was way to short but he had a big life and he was here to teach us so many wonderful things. I look at the world with a more compassionate view now. He taught me what courage is and what love really is. I am a better person and that is all because of my son. I hope next time you see his site it will not bring you sadness for us but you will see his smile and know we have all been blessed by him.

I wish you all a wonderful New Year and cannot wait to continue reading and enjoying myself here. Thanks again so much for the smiles you have given me.
