Raleigh Handmade Jewelry and Gifts
Welcome to Beyond Words! My name is Dana Smith and I specialize in unique, handmade jewelry and gifts, many of which are made from repurposed materials such as scrabble tiles, dominoes and washers. While I specialize in jewelry, I also make magnets, bookmarks, compacts, pill boxes, purse hooks and ornaments. I began Beyond Words four years ago as a stress reliever and creative outlet after having my third child and becoming a stay at home mom. Being creative is my therapy. In addition to selling on Etsy, I also love participating in local festivals and craft shows in Raleigh/Cary/Apex. Check out my online store at http://www.beyondwords12.etsy.com or find my booth the next time you visit a festival or show in the area. My show schedule is always posted on the Beyond Words Facebook page.

I founded Vend Raleigh out of a love and great passion for other women’s businesses. I’d love to share what I’ve learned with my three online business to get you as a business owner and your business to the next level!

Meeting with Cary was literally a God-send for me and for my business. I was truly struggling with the direction in which I would be moving our business for the future. Cary was able to understand those difficulties and ask the right questions to help me recognize the importance of knowing what I was really passionate about and how I could use that passion to grow the business. She took the time to look through my website and social media pages and offered great suggestions on how I could improve the look and feel of each one. I have already implemented many of her ideas and I am looking forward to implementing more on our newly updated website. Having started several businesses and Vend Raleigh, Cary has personal knowledge of how to connect to customers, subscribers and others in a truly relational way. If you are looking for someone to get a “fresh set of eyes” on your business, I would highly recommend Cary. Her perspective and advice have been invaluable to me. I am certain that she will bring that same enthusiasm to all her clients.

The consult was great and outside opinion was nice to hear. The write up of [Cary’s reviews were] very helpful in [allowing me to stay present in the consult and not having to take notes, giving me direction after our meeting.]

THP offers on location photography in Apex, Cary, Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs, and Raleigh for your special occasions and milestones or to capture the details of everyday life. I love to travel so if you are outside of this area contact me for a custom quote.
For all THP Sessions I strive to keep it as relaxed and fun as possible. I place the focus on the connection of joy and love between those in the session. Traci Huffman Photography incorporates lifestyle photography in each session. We often see photographs posed perfectly and people smiling at the camera which is absolutely beautiful, however that is not always reality. THP captures your life as it is including the emotions, and most importantly the personalities & real life. Often the favorite images are the ones I catch in between with real life moments. I always get the posed “look at the camera and smile” shot, but I focus on capturing the love, joy, and emotion and less on the formal posing.
To see examples of my work please click on the following gallery links:
A photograph is a visual journal, I take great pride in the penmanship of adding a page to your story. It is life experiences you have and how they make you feel. I love being part of your moments that turn into such great memories. I specialize in natural light portrait photography. Enjoying many realms of capturing of life and your perfect moments.

Have you ever thought about hosting an exchange student? Would you like your family to learn firsthand about another culture? Hosting a student with World Heritage will provide the opportunity to welcome a 16 year old student from another country, another continent, another culture, into your family. Each year we have over 200 students apply to live with an American family because they want to get to know the real America, the one that only you can offer them. They want to become a part of your family and a part of your community. They want to learn to be fluent in English, even though English is often their third language, if not their fourth! My family has hosted, and I now have 4 international daughters in addition to my own two adult daughters. I have worked with World Heritage as an Area Representative for 10 years, and I can help you select a student who will be a good fit with your family. We place students in Wake County Public Schools for the Junior year only, either for the Fall semester or for an entire academic year. We place all over North Carolina; I have helped families in Chapel Hill and Clayton welcome an international daughter to their families, and anticipate working with families in Moore County and Forsyth County as well for 2017-18. If you reside in Wake County, though, you need to know that WCPSS has a brief window of opportunity for submitting completed applications; some schools fill their allocated seats within weeks. Let me help you and your new son or daughter fill one of those seats!

Being our first time to host, we had no idea what to expect. Although terribly excited about our new venture, we were a little nervous and unsure of how much initial awkwardness or time was needed for everyone to acclimate. From the moment we met Michela at the airport, she removed all hesitation and fears by immediately hugging us all. Having two boys and no daughters in the house was a new experience for us all, yet Michela made it so easy.
Here at Piecefully Home I hope you will find items that will add a touch whimsy and charm to your home. I create items I love and would be proud to display in my own home.
I create and design everything for the home. There are fun home accessories, such as pillows, artwork, and quilts. I also offer utilitarian items like aprons, dish towels, and cloth napkins. Nearly all of my items are one of a kind making it extra special to own.
I took several medications for years and one day decided I wanted to choose health and wellness. After changing my diet and losing weight, I knew that the next step would be to rid my body of the chemicals I had been putting into myself for years. I was introduced to these amazing oils by a friend and my life truly will never be the same. I am now off 5 prescription medications and I feel the best I have ever felt! My goal was to remove all the harmful toxins and allergens from my home! Did you know that Essential Oils are 50-70 times more potent than herbs? Did you also know they have been used throughout history for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits? They are also mentioned over 500 times in the Bible!
If this is the journey you want to explore, please let me know! I do one on ones and classes if you just want to learn more about all the hundreds of uses essential oils can provide. Young Living Oils is the World Leader in Essential Oils and the company has been around over 20 years! They have over 100,000 members join every month. This company is truly amazing!

I’m a Mom and Wife committed to spreading the message of hope and healing!

LuLaRoe Raleigh | LuLaRoe Women’s Dresses, Skirts, tops and Leggings
Woman’s and children’s clothing sold through Direct Sales Fashion Consultants. It cannot be purchased online. Fun, modest, stylish, and affordable clothing for all shapes and sizes.
Hi!! My name is Jennifer LaPalme! I am your Raleigh area LuLaRoe Fashion consultant!! I would love to share what LuLaRoe is all about with you!!! If you have any questions or would like to schedule a pop up party at your home email me at lularoejenniferlapalme (at) gmail.com.
If you are local to Raleigh and would like to host a pop up boutique at your home please contact me. There are no sales pitches, no catalogues, no waiting for your clothes to arrive. Just 1-2 hours of you and your friends trying on our beautiful and comfortable clothing. The benefit to you? For every ten items sold, you earn 1 free piece of LuLaRoe clothing!!!
LuLaRoe, at the core, is a direct-sales clothing company which sells limited edition clothing via independent fashion consultants all over the US at in-home parties, pop-up boutiques, and in private online selling groups (join mine by clicking here!)
The Clothes: LuLaRoe clothes are beautiful, colorful, trendy, and modest. They are made to fit a variety of body shapes and sizes ranging from XXS- 3XL. While LuLaRoe primarily designs women’s clothing, they also have a children’s clothing line and men’s clothing, as well!
The Leggings: LuLaRoe is best known for our buttery soft leggings! The leggings are made in two adult sizes and three children’s and out of amazing, buttery soft, double-brushed fabric that feels as good to wear as it does to look at in your dresser and pet.
The Prints: People also know LLR for our incredible fun prints! Each print is made into a limited number of items, so if you see something you love in your size, grab it while it’s hot! When a consultant places an order, we only choose styles and sizes, so we never know which prints we are going to get or if we are ever going to see the same style-size-print combination again.
That’s what sets LuLaRoe apart from other direct sales companies – each consultant has a unique inventory instead of the same 200 items – and lets our customers experience “the thrill of the hunt,” searching for their personal “unicorn” prints! All fabrics, prints, and designs are exclusively made for LuLaRoe.
The Rest: LuLaRoe is about so much more than clothes, though! It’s about community, fun, generosity, and helping women be independent, strong, business owners in today’s world. LuLaRoe encourages women to be ambitious and generous with their business goals.

I’m a mom of 2 young adults, a wife, a daughter, and a business consultant “by day”. I have a very short commute to my home office … so I treasure how Origami Owl has given me connections with other women that I wouldn’t be able to have otherwise!
I Love What I Do
My favorite part of being an Independent Designer is being able to help others create lockets that “tell their story.”
Whether they are creating a locket to reflect their family, their hobbies, their career or to honor special people in their life, it has been an honor to hear their stories and to be a part of that process.
Another reason that I love what I do is that I have the opportunity to mentor and help others begin their amazing career with Origami Owl.
I would love to help you design something special! Tell me, what’s your story?

Founded in Chicago in 1955 by Arthur and Shirley LeVin, Jewels by Park Lane defines `The American Dream`. As the world`s leading direct sales jewelry party plan company, Park Lane proudly offers exceptional quality jewelry that is backed by an unconditional lifetime guarantee.
My Park Lane Story
I was introduced to Park Lane Jewelry in 2013 by friend from church. She invited me to go to this thing called a ‘Quarter Auction’. Well – I won 2 pairs of earrings and saw some of the most beautiful jewelry I’d seen in ages. My friend introduced me to her sister – a Park Lane Fashion Director and I was hooked. I attended many more special events and purchased many more pieces outside of the events. I was – and still am- always amazed at how much I got for such a small amount of money.
In the second half of 2015 after having an expensive surgery, expensive kitchen water damage & repairs AND a shattered car window – none of which were fully covered by insurance, I knew I needed a way to make a little more income.
That same Fashion Director – now a Sr. Division Manager is still my ‘Park Lane Person’. I’ve been to many more quarter auctions and special events and even had a few of my own. She even helped me find the perfect jewelry ensemble for my daughter’s wedding!
She shared with me the unbeatable buying program for guests, the amazing & ridiculously generous hostess program and the outstanding Fashion Director`s income & perks – like free trips and a Mercedes! Add those to the jewelry I had to have and a really simple show demo and I knew I could do this – I could be a part of Park Lane! I was impressed with the company’s values and work ethic – and of course how they reward their customers, hosts and their representatives.
I love showing our beautiful jewelry to everyone. Whether you are classic, trendy, bold or traditional in your jewelry style, I’ve got something for you. I am so excited to be helping my clients and hostesses understand all they stand to gain by our programs in a fun, interactive way! Please contact me to host your very own, very fun ‘dress up party‘!
I love going Braless in a Ruby Ribbon cami and wear our leggings everyday. Ruby Ribbon is a fashion line with a unique fit. Our products are comfortable and hug, not spank, you to look and feel slimmer, smoother and more confident in your clothing and always looking your best in them. Beautiful colors that go beyond black or nude for shapewear and an entire clothing line that compliments what is in your closet! Contact for private fitting or parties (like for bridal parties and just fun girls night). Your friends will thank you for introducing them to Ruby Ribbon and helping them Style with Confidence.

Scentsy | Raleigh, NC
Hi! I am Shannon and I am a Scentsy ADDICT! I became a consultant because I wanted to share my love of Scentsy with everyone and to show off how amazing the product really is. I used to be addicted to candles and would have them burning 24/7 which was a MAJOR hazard, but luckily I don’t have to worry about that ever again! Not only do I not have to worry about a flame or the harsh pollutants that candles give off, but the scent lasts so much longer with Scentsy. I am so glad that I made the switch and I would love to help you all out 🙂
