Strike a Pose

Sometimes I just take a whole series of pictures, to get the one good one. I know kids don't want to hold still or always 'smile nice' for the camera. So we have fun. Often the 'outtakes' are just as good if not better than the 'nice smile' picture. Normally, I 'click' for each pose, but this time, I thought I'd do a video of their responses to my pose/face requests. Nathan was a bit hung up on the flower, but it's cute that way.

Join Avon Canada for FREE!

Ding, dong, Avon calling!

Avon? Did she say Avon?  Yes! I make it no secret that I love Avon. While I rarely wear make-up, people don't realize that Avon is so much more than lipstick and eye shadow (although those rock). Avon also sells home products for decorating and entertaining. It has a great clothing line (seriously). Their kids products are inexpensive and well loved. And they are even sellers of exclusive licensed NHL products. My absolute favorite has always been the bubble bath. 
Years ago (pre-kids), I was an Independent Avon Representative. I was not a great representative, but I did okay, eventually my obsessions desire to have kids took over and the business fell to the side. Fast forward and I found out Avon was having a promotion where I could join for FREE. That's right free. Hmmm, okay, but what about the minimum order I used to have to do? Gone too. Wow, I jumped right in and joined that day.

Right away I was amazed and happy by all the changes since the last time I was an Independent Representative. Avon must have listened to us because there was a new website that made everything from ordering to tracking to learning much easier. They dropped the requirement for a minimum spend every campaign (although you need to submit something every 3 to stay active). They added new incentives and bonuses. They added e-brochures so I could reach more people, faster. 

Once I got going, I had to share this with friends and readers.  For a limited time, you can join Avon Canada absolutely free! There’s no inventory, no parties and no quotas to meet, just huge savings on your purchases, free product promotions and the ability to earn extra income!
There’s nothing to lose and a lot to gain with this fabulous offer, so if you have ever considered signing up for Avon, this is the time to do so! You can earn savings of up to 50% on your own purchases, an assortment of great products to help you fall in love with the brand and the chance to make extra money…all without spending anything! With so many great perks, there’s no reason not to give Avon a try this summer. This offer ends when August is over so act fast to take advantage.
You can email me at crfretwell @  (minus the spaces) for information on how you can get started today!
Whether you are looking for a discount on products for personal uses and gifts, a way to fund raise for a cause, a chance to actually earn money this is a great time to join. It will cost you no money. 
Being an independent Avon representative is a business. How well you succeed will depend on how much work you put into it. Avon and I will give you all the tools you need to succeed, you just need to put them in place.

The Three

As I'm usually holding the camera, it's rare for us to have a picture together. A friend took this a few months back (Nathan now has a mohawk). It's too nice not to share (even though I hate having my picture taken)
