Join My Jamberry Nails Team!

I've been with Jamberry Nails for a little over a month now and I love it more each and every day.  I am so excited to be a part of a company that allows me to work from home, party for a living and pays me in cute manis and pedis (and money, of course!).

My business is really beginning to take off and I am looking for a few great ladies to join my team.  You will not regret it!  For only $99 your starter kit comes with 3 sheets of your choice and one surprise sheet of Jamberry nail wraps, 250 samples, an application kit with loads of extras, a Jamberry heater (the!), cuticle oil, marketing materials and 3 months of your own website!  The starter kit alone is well-worth the purchase price!  Then, you add to it your 30% discount (commission) and the deal gets much sweeter!  Jamberry nail wraps are already affordable, but when you knock 30% off the purchase price, you would be loco to keep truckin' it to the salon!

If you are interested in making money as a Jamberry Nails Independent Consultant, let's chat!  I've already made over triple my money back and it has been just over a month.  That does not include all of the FREE Jamberry products I have received.  I have enough Jams to have cute nails for ages!  Woot!

 Join my Jamberry Nails team!

Jamberry Nails!

Well, hey there! It's been a while! :) 

The Ginger Crunch Momma has recently become an Independent Consultant for Jamberry Nails. In short, I am loving it!!! I adore the product, love the flexibility and have made triple my money back in my very first month!!!

What is this Jamberry I speak of? Amazing vinyl nail wraps available in 300+ styles that last for 2 weeks on hands and 4-6 weeks on toes. For $15/sheet you can get 2 full manis AND 2 full pedis! You aren't getting that bargain anywhere else! 
Jamberry nail wraps are also available in a Juniors size for girls ages 8 and under. My 4 year old LOVES her Jamberry nails and I love not having to paint her nails every other day. 
Oh, and I love that they don't have all of the nasty chemicals that regular polish does. Especially for my little thumb sucker! 

Although my Jamberry nails would last longer, I tend to switch mine out right around the one week mark. They are just too cute not to! 
Adorbs, huh?

It's 1am. 

Both kids are asleep. 

And, I am awakened by a nasty tummy grumble. 

I grumble back at it and then slink out of bed. 

I don't want to wake the kid up.

Yes, she is in my bed. 

I make it to the bathroom using my cell phone as a flashlight. 

I don't dare turn the light in for fear of awakening big sister. 

I sit. 


I must be delirious. Everyone is asleep. She IS asleep, right?


No. She woke up. How? I was so quiet. Crap. 

I reply... 'Momma's just going potty. I'll be right back. '

'But, but, but... I have to pee.'

Double crap. Luckily, I haven't (ahem) started. So, I get up off the toilet and let her in. 

After the kid handles her business and I give her another goodnight kiss (all while pinching my cheeks), I plop back down on the toilet. 


I give it a few seconds. 

Where is the poop?




Is that the little? 


I must be losing my mind. 

The urge to poop begins to return. 


Ermahgerd! It IS the little. 

I try to poop. Nothing. 

I try some more... 


I leave the bathroom to feed and rock the little to sleep. 



She falls asleep. 

I put her back in her bed. 

The cat greets me in the hallway. 

She meows. 

It is not a happy meow. 

Three kibbles are missing from her bowl. 

She is displeased. 

I am displeased. 

I go back to the bathroom. 

C'mon, poop!


No poop. Awesome. 

I decide to go back to bed. 

Of course, the big kid has spread her little body clear across the Queen size bed. 

I nudge her. 

No response. 

I lift her dead weight and return her to 'her side' of the bed. 

I climb in. 

She death rolls into me. 

I have exactly 6 inches of mattress. 

Somehow, I position my body to fit in those 6 inches. 

I guess I am comfortable. 

Then comes the knee in the back. I knew something was missing.

I am making it official.  If I write it here, then I MUST stick with it, right?

Starting today, I am tackling this 30 day squat challenge.  I mentioned it back in January and promptly forgot about it.  It just showed up on my newsfeed again so I hopped to it, did 50 squats and printed out the official 'challenge.'

Day 1 down, 29 to go...

Even MORE donations!

Just as hubby was getting ready to head out the door, the doorbell rang. Mailman. Hubby turned to me and asked, 'What did you order?'

Oh boy... I can't think of anything. Well, nothing that should arrive today. What could it be?

I was blown away to see that it was two boxes jam packed full of Share the Love donations from a fellow host. 

I am so thankful!

Now, to find someone nearby to help me nurse these diapers back to 'health.'

Many need elastics replaced. I am not too handy with a needle and thread. I do hope to take some classes at Joann in the near future but until then I am pretty helpless. 

If anyone knows of someone in the Philadelphia area that would be willing to donate their time in helping me repair these diapers, please send they my way. 



Since my little has recently begun solids, it was time to rethink my poop game plan. While breastmilk poo is water soluble, once you add solids to the mix, you need to rid the poo from the diapers before washing them. 

I am not ashamed to admit that I am a little lazy when it comes to diapering. And, I'd rather not splash poop in my eyes with a diaper sprayer. So, I took a little trip to Joann Fabric and scored a yard of awesome tie dye microfleece. 

Pretty, isn't it? Not that it really matters since it is essentially a poop catcher. :)

I used a large microfiber insert as my guide and cut the pre-washed microfleece into liners. I used chalk to outline. 

The yard of microfleece ended up providing me 30 reusable liners. 

I simply washed the liners before use and began lining the little's diapers with them at every change. They are super soft and work perfectly to protect the diapers from gunked on, stinky solids poo. The poo tends to roll right off the liner and straight into the toilet. As an added bonus, they can be used as a protective barrier for non-cloth diaper friendly creams. Oh, and they help baby feel dry longer!

$8 well spent!
