For anyone local who reads this, please support Amberley Kowalski in her fight to kick cancer.!/pages/Amberley-Kowalskis-Kickin-Cancer-Benefit/273003012736081  There is a benefit at Crandall's Dec 12.  I am doing an Avon fundraiser as well.  They are working on rolling out a website for Amberley, I'm sure they will announce the url on her FB page. 

Welcome Susan to my Avon family!  Also a premature welcome to Dawn, who will be joining us on Saturday.  Welcome ladies!   Oh and Sheila's baby....cute cute cute!!!    Good job Momma.  :)

Ugh...I hate this time of the year.  It gets dark sooooo early.  Now that I'm working evenings and nights it feels like there is only about 2 hours of daylight even if I get up at 8 am.  lol   Thankfully it is only about a month until the days start getting longer.

What a great coincidence!!  The shortest day of the year (this year) is Dec 22...which means on Dec 23 it will be lighter for just a little grandson will be born that day.  What a testament to the light he will shine on us all!!  

Along with shorter days we get colder.  It was down in the 20's last night...brrr   Time to bring out the dog sweaters.  I'll be sure to post some pics.  Believe me, he is adorable-with or without a sweater.  :D  I don't like the cold either.  Give me sunshine, lots of sunshine, and warmth.  My neighbors abandoned us and went to FL again this year.  Lucky them!! 

With Thanksgiving next week, we should all take a moment to reflect on the many things we have to be thankful for.  Even when it feels we have everything/everyone working against us, there are still so many good things in our lives, we just need to keep the good in the forefront, the rest should work itself out. 

Only 37 days till Christmas!!!   Shop early and from home at   Free delivery (direct to your home) for orders over $30. Enjoy your holiday season.

Wow!  I can't believe there are only 43 days til Christmas!!  I noticed my little Santa that helps me keep track of the days has graffiti...his chalkboard now says:  Not enough days till Christmas.  Bah humbug!   lol

Welcome to my Avon family Jolyen.  I hope you realize all of your dreams!  I sat down and made my "dream board" this afternoon.  Man, I want alot of things..haha.   

 It was good to see my Mom, Step Dad and Brother last weekend.  They came in for my granddaughter's 5th birthday.  5?!?!   Where have those 5 years gone??  Wasn't it just last week my daughter had that little girl?????    Speaking of little ones, I can't wait to see little Jonathon.  Mommy is ready for him to be born and she still has (ideally) 7 weeks to go.  Hang in there Mommallama the end is near!

 Don't forget to shop from the comfort of your livingroom (in your jammies if you like) by going to my store: .   Your order can be delivered direct to your how easy is that?!!?!

Hello world!

I would first  like to welcome Treasure, Laura, Sheila and Kathy to my Avon family...Welcome Ladies!!   Let's work on building your businesses so you can acheive your goals and dreams!!!

 Once again Autumn has arrived too soon for my liking.  While the Fall colors are pretty it is also a reminder that Winter's cold and snow (ick) are right around the corner.  I don't know about anyone else, but I really hate driving in the snow.  The Farmers' Almanac's Preliminary Winter Forecast Maps (
show that most of my family and I are in for a colder, wetter, snowier winter than normal...great.  When you look at their written forecast it says something   

Annual Weather Summary: November 2011 to October 2012

Winter will be slightly milder than normal, on average, with the coldest periods in late November, mid-December, late January, and early and mid-February. Precipitation will be below normal, with near-normal snowfall. The snowiest periods will be in mid-December, mid- and late January, mid-February, and mid-March.

I'm off to go sell more Avon and prospect for potential new Reps.  Happy Saturday!



Monday, September 19, 2011 much for keeping up with a Blog!  I got an email from my one and only follower the other day telling me I need to do an update...thanx Mom!!  Love you!!!!!!!!!!

My youngest found out she is having a BOY!!  woohoooooooooooo   Boys are few and far between around here so we are super ecstatic about this.  For now his name is Jonathon Robert, but I don't think that is going to change.  I will still call him Schmedrick.  lol  Don't ask, I have no idea where that came from.

My oldest continues to spin wool into yarn and has possibly found a local source of raw wool.  I hope that works out for her.  She really has some talent.

I have been reflecting on a few things in the last couple of weeks and I have concluded that you don't love one child more than another, you love them in different ways for different things.

My oldest keeps me in check.  In a past life she must have been my mother.  She makes me think and knocks me upside the head when needed (not literally).  She is very "black and white with only a few rare grey areas", very matter-of-fact and doesn't always approach people tactfully, but you ALWAYS know where you stand with her.

My youngest provides the things that bring me the greatest joys in life: grandchildren and a goofy little beagle named Max.  Life would be very dull without them.  I thank and love you both!!! 

Avon has gone all out for the upcoming holiday season.  Make sure you keep your eye on my website ( for all the new products coming up.  ANEW Genics...10 years in the making...addresses the 3 biggest aging concerns women have:  wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture.  Avon is first to market with this revolutionary new technology, just like we were with alpha hydroxy.  Look for the commercials on TV that are airing now.  Step into Sexy is the new fragrance coming out in C24.  All of these things can be ordered thru my website when they are available.

If you are looking for an opportunity to earn your holiday cash go to and use reference code sherylsalmons to start now for only $20.  No inventory to keep, no kit to buy.  Avon will mail your initial books and materials.  Come join me and lets have some fun!!

Time to go pick up the little pipsqueak from school.

Root Beer Floats

Last night a friend (Jill) and I went to the drive-in!!  We saw Cars 2 and the new Pirates of the Caribbean .  More important than the actual movie was a good time with a friend.  We each brought a cooler of goodies and gobbled junk food and talked for 4 hours.  A W E S O M E! ! !     Funnel cakes, jellied fruit slices, Hershey's chocolate bars, honey/mustard pretzels and our pièce de résistance...root beer floats!!

Work has changed my schedule again after the official deadline...sigh.  Its not that I mind the extra hours or that today is now my only day off this week (and I'm sure I'll be working next Sunday and Monday since it is 4th of July..more than 7 days in a row), but the fact that the schedule isn't final until Friday at 6 pm which makes it hard enough to make plans for a personal life and now when you do make plans they can just change their schedule at will without regard to their employees.  If that isn't a long run-on sentence, I don't know what  Seriously Meijer....writing a schedule really isn't all THAT hard, lets write one and stick with it!!

My youngest got to hear her baby's heartbeat on Friday.   yay!  Beating at 155...that is girl territory.  My step-niece will be finding out if she is having a boy or a girl in July so my daughter should be finding out in August.  That seems like an eternity away. 

My youngest also gets all the blame for my current creative streak in the kitchen as she has me watching the Food Network.   I haven't gotten any complaints about this yet. I'll let you know when we are eating boxed macaroni and cheese because of a failed recipe.  ;)  I plan on trying my hand at home-made bacon in the near future!

Tuesday my Avon District Manager and I are going recruiting for new representatives.  Wish us luck, I would like to come away with no less than 3 new people.  There is still time to order from my website ( and take advantage of my previously mentioned web special.   You can also sign up to sell Avon at using reference code sherylsalmons for only $20!  Where else can you start a business for $20?!?!

Time for me to go out and cut some branches away from the phone lines.  Every time the wind blows the phone crackles and disconnects...aggravating!!!  I want to have it done before the granddaughter gets here.

First post

Since I always have something to say I thought blogging should be a piece of cake.  Now that I am sitting here in front of the computer actually doing it, I'm thinking YIKES...what am I doing?  Who in the world do I think is going to actually read this?  I know I have lots to say all the time, but seriously...does anyone care what I have to say?  :)    Time will tell.

I guess the best place to start is with an introduction.  My name is Sheryl Salmons.  :)  I have 2 children and 2.5 grandchildren (yay!  the .5 arrives in December).  I have what I consider the most adorable Beagle in the world, his name is Max.  To be sure you will be seeing pictures of him in the future.

I am an Independent Avon Representative and currently a Unit Leader.  I am working to increase my customer base and advance my title.  I intend to be an Advanced Unit Leader by the end of the year.  If you are interested in buying or selling Avon, please send me an email.  

In our current brochure we are introducing Scentini...wonderfully fruity frangrances.  Make sure you shake the bottle up to get the full effect when you spray.  Make-up on pages 18 and 19 of the C14 brochure feature any 3 for $10.99.  Great prices!!  

I think I am going to offer a "Blog Special" when you order direct from me.  Summer is upon us (even though you cannot tell by the 49 degrees it was last night) so lets start the summer off right with some new sandals!!   For every pair of shoes you order in the C14 brochure, choose a FootWorks product (pages 168-171) as a free gift.  Your feet will love you for it!  :)  Send me an email!!

We have new products coming in C15-superSHOCK Mascara and Lipstick.  Order one of each for $7.99, if ordered separately at the intro price it would be $10.98, so order the set and save yourself $3!!

Thanks for reading and have a super day!
