Pto Vallarta, Mexico

Hola! I just returned from a Scentsy Director Training retreat in Pto. Vallarta Mexico. Dream it, Do it was the theme for this retreat and I am ready to do just that in 2010.
Joy Quist from Washington and Tanya Roylance from Utah are directors in my group that were able to attend, I wish every director in my group would have been able to attend.
We were able to gain wonderful knowledge while in Mexico and gain some pounds from the delicious food and beverage offered.

This was the view from the front desk of DREAMS resort.

Jess Gushard and Dannette Klein are the two directors I flew to Mexico with, we were invited a day early to attend Superstar training. I love these to women.

The beach and ocean were beautiful.

Beautiful Hibiscus.


Bloom where you are planted is what I always say.

We spent one afternoon on a boat whale watching. This was my favorite activity.

Graceful animals.

I was able to learn, relax, meet new friends and share great experiences with women that I admire, and cherish. I am grateful for my association with Scentsy. Have a wonderful week!

Lead By Example

This is a card I made for a consultant on my Scentsy team. She promoted to a Lead consultant in December. she has started building her very own team and I thought this was appropriate advice to congratulate her with - LEAD BY EXAMPLE. I love how the smallest bird is watching every step the big bird in front is making.)
Human beans (beings) are great when it comes to telling others how to do something, "You should wash your hands before you make a sandwich," "You can help a friend take care of a difficult situation" etc. The best way to help someone accomplish something is to LEAD them and show them by your example. What a great idea!

Chocolate Ice Cream Birthday Cake

Cotton and I had a wonderful birthday. Mike made us a yummy, beautiful cake! Hope my wish comes true!

Mom and Dad came over and celebrated with us, what a pair they are.

When my youngest son Justus was very young there was a commercial on t.v. for a Betty Crocker FILL AND BAKE CAKE PAN SET. Justus told Mike that I needed this cake pan, so Mike ordered it. Justus always knows what mom needs. Here is our birthday cake held by the talented baker, Clifford Michael Fitzsimmons. What a good man.

I have decided that Mike will always be the birthday cake baker for Cotton's and my
Birthday cake. It was divine.
