Featured With Love- Lynette Kaber & Thirty One

Featured With Love is a series that I began to just plain share the love. I am constantly amazed by my friends and family, especially the ones that have started their own companies and charities. I get bogged down with just the idea of doing my own thing let alone where and how to start and then how to be successful at it. I couldn't help but think about how awesome these businesses and charities are and how it would be fun to highlight them here on my blog. Not that I have a ton of readers, but I'm sure that when you run your own gig, you take any and all PR that you can get. No one has paid me to write about these people. I know that I like to buy from or donate to companies and charities that have come recommended by people I know and trust. The people that I highlight here are all loyal, trustworthy, caring, and dedicated individuals. I hope you will join me in reading and learning about what they do. I am not asking you to purchase or donate anything from them. I am simply spreading the word. Please read along and leave an encouraging comment since they are their own bosses and thus don't always get feedback and encouragement. An easy way to spread the love (and if nothing else, it will help out your karma).

Lynette Kaber is not just your average business owner. Lynette is a fun, young, thrifty, creative, organized, and crafty mother of a 4 year old boy. She is hard working (hello civil engineering degree!) and supportive (her hubby has done one tour in Iraq and two in Afghanistan!). When Lynette married my big cousin, Tim, we couldn't believe our luck to have gained such a wonderful addition to the family. Lynette constantly inspires and amazes me with her get it done and do it yourself attitude. I am also often impressed by her thoughtfulness and generosity (see the sweet deal for a charity of your choice that she's set up for you at the bottom of this post!). Lynette is trustworthy, loyal, considerate and someone I would love to be able to work with. If you are in need of some organizing at home (hello New Year's resolutions!) or just feeling like something cute, Lynette has wonderful products to offer as a representative of Thirty One. Thirty One has so many great organizational options. I have a fun black and white tote bag that I just love and I have been pondering their new fabric hanging file folders. I've done too much talking already, let me have Lynette tell you more about herself and what she does.
