Killing Time

I got enough of a sanity break this weekend to look up and notice that the walls are still bare (I've been busy!). I looked around in some stores that have Arts. Everything was expensive, and I don't need a 3 foot tall EAT sign with blinking lights in my kitchen- I'm great at eating already. Everything I liked was expensive. Everything I thought was OK was still too expensive for the amount of OKness I felt. So I'm cobbling together some crappy DIY art with GIMP while I watch people yelling about politics. I've got a miter saw and some leftover molding from fixing up the old house, so frames won't cost anything.

I'm going to print this as 3 separate images and make some frames. That'll take care of... well, one smallish wall...


They go in the guest room, which is decorated in "I'm a terrible person and I like teal too much."

I'll hit up the good thrift store when it re-opens and the good consignment store later and cross my fingers.

Looking at them again that petal in the upper right quadrant annoyed me, so I took it out. Ordered! Found a place that does $2 12x12 prints... I'm feeling a little more confident about doing these now, $2 isn't really much to gamble.

I'm glad you mentioned the thrift and consignment stores!  Unless you're naturally crafty and artistic, those seem to be the best places for home decor.  I'm always astonished at what people have discarded, and the prices are so much better.

Funny to see this, I have been on Etsy for the past hour looking at art. There are some great prints for reasonable prices there . I like what you are working on too. I hope you share your finished project with us. My walls are also quite bare . I have a llama wearing glasses print in my entry way, and some heart leaf philodendron vines I'm going to train to grow up my wall. Now, I'm looking for bright and colorful with a mid century mod feel.

      I was interested in why they were popular at all at that price and found this: 

      That is really interesting.  I wish we could send this part to Shrader with his devotion to colloidal silver.

      But if you are using it because it is impregnated with silver to kill bacteria then you are being duped! It is nothing more than a scam with multi-level marketing. Proof is in the culture and agar plates! We used to use silver for burns, infections, etc, but now just use Bacitracin. Ask any specialized burn unit. Silver has lost favor in the antibacterial world.

      Now I feel better about my old fashioned cleaning methods of using clean rags and a low tech antibacterial vinegar and water solution instead of fancy expensive cloths.  You know what makes the best dust cloths too?  Old worn out towels cut into pieces.  Use 'em and toss them into the washing machine.

      On the difference between scam MLMs and legitimate direct sales businesses - Tupperware still seems to be on the side of the Gods too.  I hope so.

      Regardless of the scam-or-not argument, I just find representatives, parties, and pop-ups a ridiculously inefficient way to shop.

      This is my allergic reaction to this stuff too - even legitimate non-pyramid schemes.  I'm not a party person and I detest being invited to these things by friends and acquaintances.  I've never had a family member try to sell me stuff but I can imagine it would be very awkward.

      fair enough; so Norwex isn't MLM.

      It appears that it is an MLM.



      Like any other MLM company, you have to become an Independent Norwex Sales Consultant before you could actually earn from this them.

      I will give you some information about the compensation plan that they offer below.

      You can earn 35% commission on your personal retail sales. Initially, you will get a discount of 35% when you buy the products as an Independent Consultant and you can sell the product to the customer at the retail price to earn your profit.

      You also get $300 worth of free product of your choice for each new Qualified Personal Recruit.

      Another way of earning is by hosting parties. This is provided by the company at no cost. The hosts also get generous rewards for hosting parties.

      You can also earn money from the sales of your team. You can recruit your friends, relatives or any stranger that is interested in joining your team. The Internet is a great place to recruit people. I have not yet noticed the percentage of commission on team sales, but I think it should be around 2% to 5%.

      You can also win gifts and awards for doing well as a consultant of this company. You can win gifts and awards from sales incentive programs and team building promotions.




      Norwex gives you 90 days to sell $2,000 worth of products to avoid paying for the starter kit. I think this is not beneficial to most people as selling $2,000 worth of products in 90 days is not easy at all. The starter kit comes with the usual basic business supplies like order forms, catalogues, training materials, and some other things that you will need to start selling.

      The starter kit will cost you $200 when you fail to sell $2,000 worth of products in 90 days.



      Other websites provide this info too. I guess you can sell it without trying to recruit people, but you can do that with Plexus and Plexus is still very much an MLM.

      Don't you watch those home improvement shows? You'll reduce the number of proselytizers at your door, if you line your sidewalk and flower beds with a cheerful assortment of rainbow colored dildos. :kitty-wink:

      I rather like the suggestion I read some years ago to have a chalk outline on your front walk and tell people that the outline was of the last proselytizer that had come to the house.
