Save Big on Thieves!

If you are reading this, you probably know that I have fallen head over heels for Young Living essential oils. I know that they can seem intimidating and overwhelming, and maybe even a bit scary. I was just like you before I started researching and learning about them. Even after the oils arrived, I was nervous about them.
I have good news for you, though! Today, Feb. 20, there is a great deal on Thieves cleaner. Instead of paying $28.95 for a bottle of concentrated cleaner, I am sharing my discount with you and giving you 20% off of that. It is $17.60 plus tax and shipping. Shipping and tax will be $10 (this covers the cost of me having the order shipped here and then shipping it back out to you). For $27.60, you can try some of this oil stuff out for yourself! Check out the flyer at the end of this post for more info.
This cleaner is the real deal. No chemicals or things you can’t pronounce. It’s safe to use around kids and pets, and it is an amazing cleaner! One bottle will make 30 bottles when you mix it up. Think about that–30 bottles of cleaners at the grocery store would cost you $75. This is a good deal and smells great too. Want to give it a try? Email me and I will order some for you. Dip your toes into the oils without jumping off the deep end! Remember, you need to let me know that you want to try the oil as soon as possible, because the order must be placed tomorrow to get the additional 20% off.  Ok, great! Just shoot me an email and you will have this fabulous cleaner in your hands before you know it! And if you order, I’ll throw in some oil samples so, that you can check those out too!



Or you can place an order yourself  by clicking here!

If you order online, it will be at the 20% off only plus tax and shipping unless you decide to become a distributor and buy the "premium start living kit". 


Either way, email me and let me know if you would like to place an order for the cleaner or other essential oils by clicking here!

I have some more crafty items to post as well over the next few days too. 

I have missed posting on my blog and my crafty friends that follow me.  I always love the wonderful positive feedback and support everyone has given me over the years.

Enjoy the Season!

I heard recently that there are 9 more weeks until Christmas! I guess I have been really busy with so many things as we all are this time of year.  It's funny how quickly the time flies in the fall and all of a sudden it's the scramble to Christmas!

I have decided to provide a gift voucher for one lucky follower of my blog for a free sitting fee in my Kenosha, Wisconsin studio or if you prefer in Racine, Wisconsin downtown.  Note: prints and digitals are available in the sales session at an additional cost but, this gift voucher is good for the sitting fee only for a beauty pamper session.   

See the video for a behind the scenes of a photo shoot with Captured by Bobbi Jo Photography. 



If you are 18 years old or older that can come to my studio in Racine, WI or Kenosha, WI, this year to be photographed, be sure to enter today.  If you have a daughter that you would like to share this experience with, I will open it up to a Mother and daughter session. I hear the high school senior girls and their mother just love this time together.  Be sure to indicate if you are looking for a single session or who you would like to be photographed with in this session.

Please apply via email to capturedbybobbijo@gmail.com Include your name, age and a recent pic. Also, when your last portrait was taken and why you would like to be photographed.

Wardrobe can be your favorite little black dress, formal gown, or a casual tank top. How do you dream of being photographed?  We will have a personal consultation before your session and style your shoot.

Please share this on your personal Facebook page linking to this post and tagging http://facebook.com/capturedbybobbijo

I am so excited for someone to really enjoy this pamper session.  Who does not need to have some beauty time and feel so special and pampered?  Enter today and tell me who you would like to share this experience with or for?

Good luck! 

Note: If you want this in time for Christmas, your session must be completed before Thanksgiving.  The winner will be posted on http://facebook.com/capturedbybobbijo/ November 7, 2013.  Be sure to become a follower of this blog and follow Captured by Bobbi Jo on Facebook.  This is for the sitting fee only and no transportation, lodging, wardrobe or anything else is included in the gift voucher.

Chicks Dig me!

Good Morning!
 This is Jen from 3 Cats and a Bug!  This week at SweetSaddyDiva's  the design team is doing anything that uses 3 or more Cricut cartridges. I went with the "or more" part and used 5 cartridges.

For Easter, my daughter bought my Grandson the cutest lil outfit! The shirt says "Chicks dig me" and he was so adorable in it. I had to buy him a huge bunny for Easter since he's too little for an Easter basket.   So, on to my layout.

 I cut out two different chicks, one from Easter 2010, cut @ 3 and one from A Child's Year, cut @ 4. I embossed the chick from ACY and debossed the other one and then colored it in.

I cut the bunny from Easter 2010, cut @ 6 and embossed that one also.

I added stickles to his ear, white enamel accents on his tail and black enamel accents for his eye.

Also from the Easter 2010 cartridge I cut out two eggs, cut @ 2.5.  I added stickles, gems and used my viva decor pen to decorate them.

I cut the words "Dig Me" from Cindy Loo, cut at 3.5. I embossed the D and M, added stickles and a gem to decorate them. I also cut out a bow for the chick, cut @ 1 from Easter 2010 and added a matching gem to that.

I cut out the word Chicks from Straight From The Next, cut @ 3.5. I embossed the heart and used my white gel pen to decorate the letter.

For the grass I used MS Birthday Cakes Cartridge. I welded two pieces together, each cut @ 2 twice for both layers. I only wanted each piece to go 12 inches.

On the light green grass I used my thumb nails to curl up the tips. When I glued the two pieces together, I just ran a strip of glue on the bottom half so that the grass would still stick up. I did it the same way when I glued it to my background paper.
Thanks for looking!
