Welcome! An intro!

Welcome everyone!  My name is Erin Carey and I the mother to 5 beautiful little girls by day and an Uppercase Living Independent Demonstrator by night. 

My journey with Uppercase began a little over two years ago while attending an Uppercase Living gathering in Cary, Illinois.  Like many I encounter, I had never heard of Uppercase Living and went with a friend to see if it was "anything".  I was shocked to find out that was Uppercase was offering wasn't the pillows or lamp on the postcard invitation but the words on the wall!!!!  Words that have changed my life! 

I left that gathering with a catalog that I promptly took to my PTO meeting the next day.  At the end of the meeting, I pulled the catalog out and asked a few of those who seemed interested if they thought "this was anything???"  They were more excited than I was, and a few of them told me that they would have a party because they could see the words in their homes, and wanted the benefits!  I was thrilled...and hadn't even signed up yet! 

The next morning I signed up.  That was February 11, 2008, not even a year into my youngest daughters life! 

The past two years have been a whirlwind of acheivements that I never anticipated.  I started Uppercase becuase I felt like I was sharing something NEW with those in my life but never knew that I was actually lacking in self esteem.  As a mother tethered to the livingroom year after year, there was something amazing about getting out of the house to share something that I believed in and having the crowd become receptive to what I was saying! 

I am truly blessed.  I am able to grasp the benefits of both worlds!  As a stay at home mom, I am available for my toddlers.  I drive them to school, make them lunch, play with them and nurture them they way that only a mother can.  As a UL demonstrator I am able to connect with my peers and share a way to enhance their homes for very little money.  All the while building a team and financial stability for our large family!
