That Crowning Glory! So Many Choices to Keep it Healthy.

Avon has several hair care lines right now and I alternate between using three of them: CHI, PropoliThera, and Dr. Groot. All have qualities that I appreciate, so I base my choice each use on what "draws" me at the time. Sometimes I combine products, like using Dr. Groot Scalp Fortifying Hair-Thickening Shampoo and Scalp Fortifying

Serum Treatment and then using CHI Thermal Protecting Spray

before I dry my hair and adding a bit of CHI Essentials Repairing Serum after styling. I have not yet tried the Elastine Botanicals

or the Elastine Hempharmx Shampoo and Condtioner.

When I run low on one of the lines I'm using I want to try the Rosemary & Sea Salt products in the Elastine Botanicals line because I have customers who love them. Since my hair dresser says my hair is dry, perhaps I should also try the Cherry Blossom & Hyaluronic Acid Elastine Botanicals.

I love having so many choices now! You can read all about each product featured here plus many others at my website: Select "Shop Categories" and then "Hair Care" and you can shop by Product Category or by Brand.

Is everyone safe, dry, and warm? We had a 100% chance of snow yesterday and got rain (on top of ice) all day then had no snow showing for today and it has snowed lightly from dawn through dusk!

Welcome back to Avon and the Cloud Climbers team: Alicia Alvarado and Martha Schrimsher- both on Margo Prytz's team. I'd also like to welcome back Rebecca Robertson and Ann Henry, who are in my first generation. Ladies, we are happy to have all of you working with us again!

TIPS: Here are a few potential money making tips I picked out from recent social media training on the Official Avon Representative Social Selling | Facebook page. 1) Comment on posts of 10 people each time you go to Facebook (or once a day if you go there often). This will help with interaction and make your personal business posts more likely to be seen by those people. 2) If you do not have a pic of yourself as your profile picture, get one! Show confidence in yourself so that people will have confidence in you. I mean, wouldn't you rather shop with someone you have actually "seen" on Facebook? I would! 3) Post content that is shareable on your personal or business page. This means contact that is not marked "Private" and that is worthy of being shared. 4) If you are on IG, IG Reels with Hashtags are a great way to share right now as IG wants to take over the competition, so they are favoring Reels right now. Of course, doing things to have your posts seen only works if you are posting regularly, so do that thing! 😁💓

Have a great rest of the week and a Happy Valentine's Day!

Cloud Climbers Newsletter for Campaign 3, 2021

(Disclaimer: It WAS a cloudy, drizzly day when I wrote this Thursday, but the sun is shining brightly this morning and it's a beautiful thing to behold God's blessing!) 


I've finally gotten my house undecorated from the holidays on this cloudy, drizzly day and it sure feels good to have that behind me! Tomorrow night and through the weekend I'll be watching the Avon Kick Off for 2021 and I hope that you will too. Registration ends tonight, so if you have been putting it off don't put it off any longer. 

Thanks so much to all of you who worked hard to service your customers and made certain that our $4,000 goal for the team was met in Campaign 3. I appreciate YOU!

Top 10 in Sales for Campaign 3

  1. Sandra Moore HS   $1,113
  2. Margo Prytz PC   $566  
  3. Leslie Clendenon PC   $340
  4. Rene Parker Pr   $260
  5. Phyllis Smith   $240
  6. Linda Wardell Pr   $238
  7. Judy Strawn   $157
  8. Cynthia Blake   $155
  9. Jeannie Earls   $146
 10.  Susan Watkins   $145

Those with Online Direct Delivery Sales in Campaign 3

  1. Sandra Moore HS   $235.56
  2. Leslie Clendenon PC   $87.96
  3. Kerri Clay   $69.41
  4. Rene Parker Pr   $66.97
  5. Kelli Violet   $60.65
  6. Amy Layne   $32.24
  7. Margo Prytz PC   $27.45
  8. Ashleigh Downey   $10.49

If you compare the two lists above, you will see that most sales for our team are still being done person to person rather than online. I believe I told you that I am working harder than ever to build up my online presence to pick up new online customers, but I expect that my personal delivery orders will always exceed my direct delivery orders. Why? Because most Avon customers still prefer that personal touch and building a relationship with their Avon Representative. However, it is still a great idea to spend a little time each week posting your website link (don't overkill!) on social media for those who don't want to build that relationship. There are introverts or just extremely busy customers who are more comfortable not having to work with a Rep and you want their business too. I have posted some images for your use in promoting the new Farm Rx skin care products and the Avon Pure essential oil products to our FB group Cloud Climbers Avon Team Facebook so please download those to your own device and use them to promote these great new product lines. If you are not in that group, please let me know so that I can add you to it. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Avon Campaign 4, 2021 - Love is All You Need!


We have just moved into Campaign 4 and the brochure is up online! The concentration is Valentine's Day, so be sure to view pages 1 through 13 for all the "hearts!" 

Here are some of the new items and good buys I spotted in Campaign 4:
  • Pg. 4, 'True' Love at 1st Lash Mascara in Velvet Mulberry - a shade that may only be available for a short while - is $11.99. 
  • Pg. 7, Anew Vitamin C Vitamin Me Brighten Me Gift Set (what a name!😁) has three full sizes of best-selling Anew Vitamin C products in a gorgeous gift box for only $44.99.
  • Pg. 11, Hearts! Hearts! and more Hearts! with our jewelry pieces for Valentine's Day. And don't forget about the Lock Me in Love Key Chain for only $8.99 with any $15 purchase from pages 3-11.
  • Pg. 12, The A Box is Romance Me Pamper Me and has a full-size Crave Lipe balm along with a travel size of Love at 1st Lash Mascara and a Lyrd Artisan Santal Musk Eau de Parfum Travel Spray. This is a great $10 addition to your $40 order as the Lyrd travel spray sells for $17 by itself. 
  • Pg. 38, Dr. Belmeur Cica Recovery Cream and Cica Hydro Cream are each $34. These creams are suitable for sensitive skin and an amazing, skin loving, addition to your beauty routine. Great for the gentlemen too!
  • Pg. 41, If you do not have an aloe plant growing in your home, you need the Jeju Aloe 99% Fresh Soothing Gel for $6.99. This large jar (10.1 fl. oz.) of 99% pure aloe infused with 9 soothing herb extracts is a best buy
  • Pg. 65, Are deep lines and wrinkles a concern for you? Anew Clinical Line Eraser with Retinol Targeted Treatment ($22.99) is for use in the p.m. after cleanser and before moisturizer. It's a powerful tool in your arsenal against the signs of aging!
  • Pg. 215, Elastine Hempharmx Hydrating Shampoo and Hydrating Conditioner ($20 each) are vegan formulas that are silicone-free, and the shampoo is sulfate-free. They have Omega 3-6-9 to help moisturize and nourish hair.

Cloud Climbers Newsletter for Campaign 2, 2021

This is the newsletter I write for my team each campaign. Right now the team is 60 members strong with one more pending her first order. If you would like to become a Cloud Climber, you can do so at no cost by clicking this link: Avon | Make Beauty Your Business | Sell Avon (  I'll be your mentor and we will work together toward perking up your new year with a new business!


It's a beautiful day and I'm happy to have work to do and the good health to do it! I hope that you are doing well and keeping good spirits even if some of those around you are not. Or perhaps you are blessed to be surrounded by folks who keep you motivated and encouraged. Keep those folks close and socially distance yourself from the others so the energy vampires don't bring you down. 🙂 Every morning that I wake up with work to do it is a good day, and since I have work to do every day, every day is a good day. I hope that you feel the same way. 

Most of us have fallen off just a bit in sales for this campaign, but I hope things will pick up with the next one. I'm trying to do more consistent posts on Facebook and maybe I will eventually get back to adding to Instagram, to try to keep my social media presence out there. I'm going back to doing more FB Live videos on my business page to get viewers, because FB still favors Live video content over posts, and I know that customers like to see them just like I like to see them when Reps of other companies do them. I'm still gaining a customer or two every campaign from people who find me online, so I know the social media is working for me. My most recent way to reach out is by joining a Buy Nothing FB group that a customer told me about. I can't use the group to promote my business, but when I put things out on my porch for pickup, I have brochures hanging in the plastic bags for anyone who stops by my porch to pick up. I put whatever is being picked up on the rocker on the front porch and the brochures are hanging from the top of the rocker. I had my first pickup since doing that this week and I noticed that she did take one of the brochures! 

Top 10 in Sales for Campaign 2

  1. Sandra Moore HS   $725
  2. Margo Prytz PC   $524
  3. Linda Wardell Pr   $351
  4. Leslie Clendenon PC   $234
  5. Steffanie Erdelt   $173
  6. Michele Cox   $132
  7. Carolyn King   $114
  8. Rosanna Cassidy   $102
  9. Brittney Monti   $80
 10. Amy Layne   $74

My goal as a Gold Ambassador is to have $4,000 in team sales each campaign and, as you can guess from the numbers above, we did not make that goal. Ouch! I'm feeling confident that we'll be back on track for C3 because we are at 96% with only $398 left to hit the $4K. If you haven't gotten your order in yet, please don't miss the deadline of Tuesday, 4:00 p.m. CST!! You need to get brochures if nothing else.

  • Yvonne Lassiter, 1/15
  • Barbara Stansky, 1/17
  • Jean Droulliard, 1/13
