Scent-sational Saturday

Buenos Dias!! We are safely in Argentina! The flight was MUCH longer than we expected and very bumpy. I honestly thought we were going down in Columbia... thankfully we are here safe and sound. I took a nap and we are trying to figure out what we are going to do today! I wanted to tell my Scentsy story since I haven't done that on here yet. I can't leave out a huge part of my life on this blog!!! I know most of you know (and probably are my customers, ha!) about my Scentsy business. I started a year ago. Happy anniversary to me!! I absolutely love it! It gives me an outlet... I love folders. Is that weird? I like to know that I've finished a task. There aren't many tasks in motherhood that are ever finished. Everything I do (just about) are like a revolving door. I think I've finished the laundry and bam! The basket is full again. I unload the dishwasher and there is another meal or snack to clean up. I vacuum and someone walks through... that's all it really takes. I'm not meaning to complain, but a mother's work is never done. However, with Scentsy, I can start a task... and complete it. Once I've delivered a customer's order... it's done. I've satisfied that customer and completed a task. It's such a great feeling! Not to mention that I get to have guaranteed "girl's night" a couple of times a month. This isn't a career for me (although some women and men have made it just that), it's a part time job. I normally do about one home party a month. Sometimes I do more, sometimes less... and then I normally have a couple of online parties a month. These are just times when post a facebook status asking if anyone needs anything and I get a ton of responses. I put in the order and, hey, I get a payday! You can't beat that! And I lurve it! I can work when it fits my schedule! And I can tell the kids, "mommy's working" when I need a few minutes to practice being a grown up. It's just the perfect fit for me. I love the product. I mean, really love it! I use it in almost every room of my home. It's safe, it smells awesome and it's beautiful!
I am so thankful for the blessings Scentsy has brought to my life. I have met so many new friends. I have laughed more than I thought possible, and I get to have something that is just mine. It has nothing to do with my family. I love my family, but I need some time away. I need some "me time." Scentsy is a wonderful product to sell because 1. It sells itself. Once people smell the wax... they fall in love. 2. It's consumable. The wax loses it's smell after about 120 hours... so that means people come back to buy more wax. And I don't have to work for that. I just provide it and I get paid! I tell people all the time, I don't sell Scentsy, I just provide it. It truly sells itself. I get a warmer every month and this month's warmer is called "Mother's day" I think it's beautiful!!! The photos don't do it justice... but it's stunning. It's a great, neutral color that would work in any decor. And I love the touch of bling on the front. Such an eye catcher! The scent is ah-mazing! I love it! I wasn't wild about last month's scent. I'm always honest when you ask my opinion about a scent. However, everyone's sniffer is different. What one person loves, the next can't stand! This month's scent is wonderful!!! To see a picture of this month's warmer along with all the new warmers, which I can't seem to upload, check out my website Scentsy also just released a new line of bath and body products. The lotion is perfect! I love the scents they chose, I love the way they feel on my skin.
I hope you'll check out my website and ask me any questions you might have about the products or starting your own home business!
