My Favorite Things for Direct Sellers
"Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens," is the opening line of the song My Favorite Things. I can picture Julie Andrews running around the Von Trapp house singing the song. And now you, like me, probably have it going through your mind.
As a direct seller, I bet your favorite things include the products you sell. When I was in direct sales, my company released new products every month. And for a while, almost each one became my new favorite.
When I was asked to make a card that was product-specific, I came up with the My Favorite Things Collection. Each card focuses on a popular product offered by one or more direct sales companies. I researched copyright laws and found out that I can do parodies. So there is parody about the products on the back and an illustration of them on the front.
And if you have the song running through your head now, imagine how I lived when I was writing the parodies. Sometimes I'd do it while I was walking the dog. I'd sing a line over and over until I got the right amount of syllables and then I'd list rhyming words. When I finally got it, I'd repeat it until I got home to write it down. It took me several cards in to come up with the idea of texting it to myself in the middle of the walk.
As of now, there are 16 different cards that represent:
- fashion - jewelry, clothes, accessories, bags
- beauty - cosmetics, make-up, skin care, hair care, nail polish
- home - wickless candles, essential oils, pet supplies
- kitchen - kitchenware, chocolate
- hobbies - books, scrapbooks
Don't see a product you sell? Contact me.
Each design is available as a folded card with an envelope or as a set of two flat cards with envelopes or a set of four flat cards without envelopes.
