“I remember as a kid,
doodling and personalizing my notebooks while in school, so why not personalize
your electronics?” Digitz removable stickers – which can be removed and wiped
clean with no lasting residue or mark on most surfaces – brings “a little life
and a little love” to laptops, cell phones, e-readers, and more. Visit www.digitzstickers.com
to see the complete line of stickers.
A portion of the proceeds supports the Wisconsin Humane Society, since the idea
for Digitz was inspired, in part, by Scoobie the dog.

“I always remember the Avon lady
coming to my house with all kinds of goodies. I couldn’t find an Avon
representative in my area, so thought I would give the business a
whirl. The company has evolved quite a bit; it’s not your mother’s Avon
any more, and their product base has grown as well.”
Product lines include Tiny Tillia,
Mark, and Avon products in makeup, clothes, hair products, and kitchen
accessories. Located in the Rochester, Minn., area, alumna Jennifer Rahlf
encourages people near and far to visit her
