Before and After

When I became a Rodan and Fields consultant my kit came with the Anti-Age regimen. I gave it to my Mom to try out. She is a great candidate because she didn't really have any skin care products she used. (And she's still a beautiful lady!) She has been using the products for two months and she admitted to me that she hasn't been faithful to using it AM and PM seven days a week. But, after looking at her before and after pics I was amazed at the lines and wrinkles diminishing! Her skin looks more even and smooth too. Just imagine if she uses it everyday!

I took these w/ the same camera just different rooms so the lighting is the only difference.

And NO Photoshop!

Now if I can "see how she rolls" with the AMP MD and watch those lines melt away quicker!

Rodan & Fields Consultant

Okay, I know I don't need another thing on my plate, but....I really like this skin care line and hope to share it with others. A while back I wanted to try and find a new skin care line because I am in my 30's and I was still breaking out like I'm in my teens! My sis-in-law had just signed on with Rodan and Fields and was telling me how great the products were. These are the same dermatologists who make Proactiv. So, I tried it and loved it and have been a preferred customer for six months and have now decided to be a consultant!

I'd love to talk with anyone who want to know more about this new and up and coming business. It's great to get in on the ground level of direct sales, especially with great products like these. Or if you want to know more about the regimens, contact me.
Here are my websites for product and the business. On the ".com"/product website, there's a great tool to use to see which regimen will work best for you. Or you a combination of them like I use!

Start the new year off with a new you!

Take care of the skin God gave you!

Student Gifts

What do you get 19 students for Christmas on a teacher budget? A scholastic book bought with points earned and a white board w/ marker! We use individual white boards like these in class almost daily. So, each student got their own monogrammed for a gift.

To make 32 1'x1' white boards, go to a home improvement store and get a 4'x8' piece of washboard ($12) and ask them to cut it into foot by foot squares. How easy and inexpensive!

I borrowed a Cricut machine from another teacher to monogram the boards. And after using the machine I know what I want Santa to bring me for Christmas! It was so easy to use and fun to play with. The possibilities of gifts kept running through my mind of what you could make with this machine!

The students LOVED them and immediately asked to write on their boards and continued to ask the rest of the day if they could write on them. Hopefully, they will enjoy them for a long time!

Reindeer Ornaments #2

For Christmas gifts from my students to their parents, we made reindeer handprint ornaments. I made these with a class a few years back, see earlier post here. A few changes from earlier are using red glitter glue and smaller ornaments. They turned out cute then and they turned out cute again. These are blue plastic ornaments from Wal-Mart. I think I like the blue and brown better than the green ornaments done before. This was just one of many school projects that has consumed my evenings lately. But, hopefully it's something the parents will treasure for years to come.

Kindergarten Fun!

This school year as been busy settling into a new grade, new school and new schedules. I am truly blessed to be teaching at a great school with wonderful parents and students. Kindergarten is fun and tiring! We are half way through the school year and I'm finally feeling like I'm getting in a groove of things. I keep telling myself that next year will be easier and not having to create so many things, but just "add to".

Austin is just down the hall and I get to see him during the day which makes it great. And Coop is just a few miles down the road at his school. It's great all being close together.

Thank you God for this job and opportunity to make a difference in so many peoples lives!

First Day of School

It's that time again and school has started. Austin is in First Grade! Here he is with his sweet teacher Mrs. P. Best thing is we are at the same school this year! We see each other at lunch and usually on his way to PE. It's great getting those sweet hugs and kisses through out the day!
Everyone's ready for their fist day of school!
Coop with his game face on!
Precious boys! Ready for the first day of school.

Snow Days

Okay, so we tell the boys not to expect snow in Alabama at Christmas time and each year Mother Nature proves us wrong! They have been lucky enough to have snow during the winter time. Cooper actually enjoyed being out in it this year. Here are a few pics from 2010 snow days!

What a sweet looking little Dwarf! Which one is he...Grumpy, Dopey, Happy...?!
