Detour Today -> Chickens

I love blogging about our wreath company, but once in awhile it's ok to detour.  Today is one of those days.  I ran across a blog: & I thought I'd share a little about my oldest son's passion for chickens.

Sam Jr. loves decorating, farming, and animals.  He's the type of kid that makes me stop and wonder at times, "Are those my genetics or his dad's?" He's extremely passionate about whatever he does.  When he was 3 years old, he was passionate about "Watermumpkins!"  In other words he liked Pumpkins and Watermelons and had helped daddy grow them in the garden.  He conveniently combined the words and talked about "Watermumpkins" constantly.  Then Sam Jr. phased into the Kangaroo era.  Yes, I drove his passionate little mind to the zoo to fullfill his fantasy of seeing a Kangaroo.  It didn't go very well, because it was 90+ degrees and the Kangaroos were too hot to hop.  Yep, that was a sad day.

Anyway, today Sam Jr. is a 7 year old who loves chickens!  We had our family photo's taken this past week and he had to get a picture of Blacky The Chicken.

He names all his chickens.  Rooster Gate is an interesting Araucana who crows on the gate every morning and the list goes on.....
When Sam Jr., is not being harassed by his younger brother and sister, we'll find him quietly looking through his newest Murray McMurray chicken catalog or seed catalog (flowers are a passion too).

Recently, Sam Jr. saved up all his egg money to invest in an incubator.  He hopes to hatch some of his own eggs into baby chicks soon.  What can I say?  The boy loves his chickens!

Wreath Giveaway

Contest Ends 9/29/12 @ 10pm CDT
Wreaths Can Only Be Mailed To An Address In The U.S.A.
Winner Receives Qty. 1) 24" Traditional Balsam Fir Wreath
Sent To An Address Of Their Choice

Tonight, I'm looking for referrals. 

A few years back, I was working for a window and floor covering business here in Northern Minnesota.  While at this company, they had me join the local BNI (Business Networking International) chapter to represent their business.  Basically, we'd trade the names of people we met that week who might be interested in the services one of the business members had to offer.  This experience made me think of how can apply this practice to Jen's Wreaths.

Here's how this applies to Jen's Wreaths:

Jen's Wreaths is focused on getting new fundraisers registered right now!  Organizations sell our wreaths, to earn money for their club.

Think through all the people you know.  Tonight, I'm specifically looking for a person you know who is in charge of a 4-H Group, a Boy Scout Group, a Dance Team, a Softball Team, an advisor of a club at your local school, the local youth group pastor/leader, the president any local organization (Young Life, YMCA, Optimist Club) who maybe looking to do a fundraiser.  I do not want any the name/address of a teenager part of the group, I need the information sent directly to the leader of the organization.

Here's what Jen's Wreaths promises:

I will not harass your friend/acquaintance.  I will only send them 1 mailing via USPS (make sure to check to see if they have a P.O. Box) about our fundraiser program.

Here's how you can enter our giveaway:

For every name & complete mailing address submitted, you will get 1 entry into our contest.  I am actually going to make a paper entry and draw these out of a hat.  So, for some of you well networked fans, every name/address increases your odds.  (Maximum of 10 entries per person)  I'm trusting you that you will provide me the name of a person/group who may legitimately have a need to do a fundraiser.  Please don't just give me the name of any random Joe :) 

You can submit your entry to me by sending me the name/address of the potential client in a private message via our Facebook Page:  CLICK HERE FOR JEN'S WREATHS FACEBOOK PAGE  You may also just post it on our facebook page, too, if you prefer. 

OR - You may submit your entry via e-mail to

I will announce the winner by Monday, October 1st on our Facebook page & Blog!

With 15 hours left, we can use your help spreading the word about our custom box campaign.  We put this project together based upon feedback from you, our valued customers.  Our desire is to give you the customer, a better option for the presentation of your wreath sent to a loved one.  As company, this custom packaging makes the most sense, because it will help us save some money and keep our wreaths affordable.
