I do anything from “A” to “Z” such as aprons, pet collars, pet beds, mending, hemming, alterations, window shades, etc. I’ve always loved doing crafts and sewing. Recently I decided to focus on sewing and make that my priority. I’m happy to say that I’m keeping busy. I like creating items that will inspire you. Maybe it’s dog collar for your precious one, an apron as a gift for a lifetime friend or something fun for a special teenager. It’s rewarding to know that my items are making their way into your lives and your homes. You should do business with me because I will always put you first and will go out of my way to make what you want and nothing less. Thanks to all of you, I’m keeping busy and I’m so grateful to you and GPS for your support so I can do what makes me happy! Janet Starke, All Sewn Up where every stitch counts!

Shaklee has become a big part of my life since I was introduced to the products 11 yrs ago.  I first began using their Alfalfa when I was suffering from sinus headaches.  This made such a difference that I tried other Shaklee supplements, which also helped me feel healthier and more energized.  I was thrilled to discover that Shaklee’s nontoxic cleaners are safe for us, the environment, and are also economical!  Their impressive products and ethics made me want to share Shaklee with others.

LouAnn_1_headshots_lowdownload (1)

Covi Travel, LLC moved from its Lake Geneva, Wisconsin home to Sun City West in May of 2014. This family owned, home-based travel agency opened in 2012, first working with a host agency in Wisconsin. LouAnn plans cruise and vacation packages for individuals, couples, extended families, and groups. You may have met LouAnn if you attended the PORA Vendor Expo last Spring in Sun City West, where they exhibited at their travel booth display. Or you might have attended their joint seminar in January at the Sun City West Foundation, presenting along with Viking Cruise Lines. She works closely with all cruise lines and has supplier contacts around the world. You may have read some of their advertisements if you read the Surprise or Sun City West Independent newspaper. Much of her free time is spent traveling to new destinations, so she can better describe and more closely match a client to a destination experience they are looking for. Last October, Jamaica was her ‘homework project’. In just three full days, she explored the island with other travel agents from around the US. They conducted site inspections of a dozen resort properties in Ocho Rios and Montego Bay, Jamaica. Working closely with the Jamaica Tourist Board, all the resorts were toured in depth – restaurants, spas, pools, and several different levels of accommodations at each. In April, she traveled to Costa Rica to learn more about the Tamarindo area, to be able to better answer questions and match property types with her clients. Several times a year LouAnn attends national trade shows, seminars and does in depth industry trainings, to better serve her clients. Her love for travel, shows in her enthusiasm, as she works closely with clients to prepare the best vacation package. Questions asked before planning starts, help LouAnn develop itineraries best suited to match a client’s expectations. Covi Travel can work with you by phone, email or by appointment in their home office. Whether you are planning a destination wedding, a family reunion or just a girls’ getaway trip, she’ll work diligently to create the package best suited to your needs. Several upcoming cruise groups are currently available to book into. Two Holland cruises are going to be exploring the Panama Canal in March 2016. Another group will be exploring Alaska on a Norwegian cruise in June of 2016. Working with groups is something that LouAnn does well. LouAnn is a member of the Surprise and Sun City GPS groups. She volunteers in her free time with the local Kiwanis Club. She is also a member of the Wisconsin State Club and the Illinois State Club in Sun City West. Contact information: (262) 215-8399
