Today’s vendor is a personal lifesaver, Karen’s Kasseroles! I don’t know how I’d get through the busy holiday season without her! Karen offers frozen casseroles that she will be selling straight from the freezer the day of the event!

It was delicious, and with having to be 2 to 3 places in one day, a definite LIFESAVER!

I am thrilled that this year, she will be selling the new Adrian Rogers Legacy Bible! This is a wonderful resource! If you haven’t seen it in person, it is really a beautiful Bible! It is a treasure filled with sermon excerpts, Adrianisms, and more! It is a wonderful Bible study resource. You will definitely want to get one for yourself! This would also be a TERRIFIC Christmas gift! In keeping with the “every vendor will be offering a discount” aspect of Christmas in the Valley, she will be offering a great, one day only discount on these! They normally cost $75 plus $5 shipping, when ordered online, but you will be able to purchase them for a special price of $65 at Christmas in the Valley!

My sister, Angie, will also be selling her book, Poppies in December, which chronicles her story of loss and God’s amazing faithfulness through their journey. This would not only be a terrific book for someone who has experienced the loss of a child, but is also an encouragement for anyone, at anytime, as she so practically and beautifully describes God’s undying faithfulness through each and every situation. If you haven’t read her story, I can promise you that it will be a blessing to you!

Today’s vendor is Scentsy! If you have never heard of Scentsy before, you are missing out! Last year was the first time I was introduced to Scentsy, and boy has it transformed our home! So, what is Scentsy, you ask? Well, they are flameless, scented “candle” burners! How do they work? You purchase wax scent bars, then place them on top of a plug in burner that melts the wax, allowing the fragrance to fill your home!

Before Scentsy, we were always purchasing candles. Our favorite was Yankee Candles, and at $30/candle, it added up quite fast! They smelled good, but only scented the room that you had them burning in. While Yankees lasted longer than the average candle, they still did not have a very long lifespan.

We bought our first Scentsy burner at Christmas in the Valley last year and NOT been disappointed! The burner cost approximately the same as a Yankee, but lasts forever. All you have to do is buy new scents, which are only $5 each! They easily last for 2 months or more! Over time, this comes out SO much cheaper than any candle you can find!

Not only is it affordable, wonderful fragrant, and fashionable, but it is also easier and safer than traditional candles! All you do is plug it in! No matches, no remembering to blow it out, no messy wax residue melting down the side of the candle – just plug it in and leave it all day and night, if you like!

These are terrific for gifts or for yourself! If you’re a lover of candles, you will absolutely LOVE this product! There is rarely a time when someone come to our house and doesn’t immediately say, “What is that wonderful smell!?” I happily tell them about this great product!

Purchase the "warmer of the month" at Christmas in the Valley for 10% off! Also, spend $100 or more and get a FREE scent block! If you book a Scentsy party before December 31, get your name in a drawing to win a FREE "plugin" (in addition to all the great products you could win based on the sales of your party!) So, come, check them out, smell their scents, and take advantage of these great deals!

Today’s vendor is It Works Body Wraps! I first saw this booth at one of the Agricenter fairs at the beginning of the year and thought it was so neat! It’s a weight loss body wrap that you can use on your arms, neck, legs, or waist! You are supposed to lose around 2-3 inches and keep it off for several months!

I would have DEFINITELY chosen to do this when I saw it, but was pregnant at the time (Remember, that I was pregnant for 18 months out of the last 2 years!) and was told I couldn’t do it then. I was very disappointed, but am hoping to try it out at Christmas in the Valley. I know several people who did do it and after being measured before and after the process, said it worked! Tina wraps you, and you keep it on for about 30 minutes, then take it off, get measured and see the inches disappear before your eyes!

The wraps are normally $25, but she will be offering them for $20 at Christmas in the Valley! What a great way to lose a few inches in time for the holidays, when you’re normally putting them on! =)

Today’s Vendor Spotlight is another one of my favorites, BeautiControl! Rep. Niki Berry will be present and offering all kinds of great specials! Everything will be marked down from 25 to 75 % off! She’ll have all kinds of package deals, as well! These are perfect gift ideas and already come in cute packaging for you! How easy is that!?

For those of you who aren’t familiar with BeautiControl, they offer a wide variety of Spa and Makeup products! I think I have yet to come across a BC product that I DON’T like! Their spa products are simply to die for! I love nice, long relaxing baths, and let me tell you, my BC products are definitely a treat after a long day!

Last year I was also converted to BC’s makeup products! Before then, I was a mix and match makeup person. I’d do drugstore this, department store that, etc. I decided to have a BC makeup party with Niki after last year’s Christmas in the Valley, and thought I’d give it a try! After all, I basically won all of it for FREE for hosting the party! I can tell you that I immediately began to see a difference in my complexion and the longevity of my makeup! By the end of the day, BC products stay on your face, leaving you looking pretty much the same that you did after your initial application! I was also surprised at just how affordable their makeup products are!

Niki is an incredible consultant, because she is ON TOP OF THINGS! When you run out, she almost always has what you need on hand and will run it over to you many times in the same day! So whether you’re looking for a great gift idea, or if you’re in need of products for yourself, be sure to check out everything they’ve got to offer!
