March Madness!

There are so many great things to share for this month, but I'm going to start off with a simple Warmer/Scent of the month post, mostly because it's just too cute to keep quiet any longer!

This month's warmer is not a warmer at all, but an adorable duck Buddy, Wellington!  He is snuggled up in a removable sunny yellow rain slicker, ready for whatever weather might come your way.  Remove the hood to reveal the cutest little tuft of hair on top of his head.  I love him!

The scent for this month is Sunlit Morning, and it's such a beautiful spring scent.  Wake up to warm rays of sunshine. Experience the brilliance of a spring morning with juicy lemon and bergamot, white flowers, and a pinch of earthy sage. I love this scent, and because of the type of scent it is, it's one of our longer lasting scents, so use it sparingly!  I managed to get several days out of half a cube in our main bathroom.

Remember, both Wellington the Duck and all forms of Sunlit Morning are on sale this month for 10% off.  These would make a great addition to any Easter basket.

Another Sneak Peek...

Next month, Scentsy is introducing several new warmers, some new scents, and a few entirely new products to the catalog.  My favorite of the new items is so absolutely adorable and I think beats what they've done in this line in the past.

Baby Buddies!

Will March go in like a lamb and come out like a lion or will it be the other way around?  Either way, all eight adorable buddies are available in baby size starting in the new catalog.  They're so stinkin' cute and I know will make great Easter basket stuffers!.

Discounts and Discontinued Items...

Upcoming Holidays:

Valentine’s Day
Mother’s Day

Need a quick gift? Ask about the buddies, warmers, and scents in stock, including discontinued warmers and scents.  Some of the scents include Luscious Lemon, Cutiepie Cupcake, Red Delicious, Exotic Vanilla/Velvet Spice, and many others, as well as quite a few from the current catalog.

Buddies make for great Easter basket stuffers! 

Also, a quick sneak peek into what’s to come:

Next month, Scentsy will be introducing a new greeting card line, a new fine fragrance line (lotions, shower gel, etc.), AND baby Buddies!  We can’t get these until March 1, and they will not be available at the 10% off price point, but they will still be super awesome!

Transition Time!

Oh, February! I have so much love for this month!  There are so many great things happening this month, leading up to even better things next month!  I have lots to share, so I'll try to be quick.  Bullet style, it is!

  • First, on a purely personal note, I added a "Follow me on Pinterest" link in the right sidebar.  I am a bit addicted, but I actually do try to use the pins I find, at least some of them.  ;)

  • February Online Mystery Host Party is posted!  What is a Mystery Host Party?  Anyone who places an order online during the month of February will be entered to win the host rewards for all the online orders of the month. If there are at least $150 worth of orders placed online, I will draw a name from all of the orders placed online.  Standard rewards will be awarded.  Get your friends and family to order online to up the number of rewards to be awarded!
  • February scent of the month is Pixie - A mischievous moonscape of pink pepper, mandarin, and heliotrope, deepened by exotic teakwood and vanilla oak.

  • Also this month, Scentsy is introducing ScenTrend, the latest trend in fragrance.  The ScenTrend for 2012 is Pink Pepper, found in some of the scents available (such as Pixie) but also a great addition to some of the scents available (such as Love Story). Fruity, floral, and feisty Pink Pepper is a comforting yet contemporary scent—and the latest trend in home fragrance.

  • February's warmer of the month is Flutterby - Conjure the magic of the first green signs of spring with Flutterby. Fanciful butterfly cutouts cast delightful shadows on the wall when lit.  I love the simplicity and beauty this warmer offers.

  • As mentioned in the title, February is transition time.  We're clearing out the old with a 10% discount on everything except Combine and Save packages and licensed warmers.  Many items (mostly holiday, but some others, too!) have been placed on the discontinued list.  This is always my least favorite part of transition time, but I'm comforted by the knowledge there are bigger and better things to come (I can't wait to share the new catalog!).  Transition time is also one of the best times to join!  During transition time, new consultants receive testers from both the old catalog and the new catalog at no extra charge!  

  • Discontinued items at the end of this month include two buddies (Pookie - the holiday buddy, and Sasha - the Charitable Cause buddy), 22 full size warmers (Blizzard, Bluster, Caldera, Scentsy Cream, Delta, Fright Night, Full Court, Gingerbread, Jolly, Lotus, Maize, Menorah, Merry Berry, Milano, Paws, Pinecone, Prancer, Silent Night, Socorro, Tannenbaum , Torino, and World Cup), two mid size warmers (Little Lamb and Over the Moon, both from the nursery collection), and eight plug-in warmers (Bloom, Fright Night, Gingerbread, Rust, Silent Night, Snowday, Snowflake-Red, and Weave-Scarlet).  Snapshot does appear in some lists as being discontinued, but Scentsy has confirmed that Snapshot will make a return, even though it will not be featured in the new catalog.  The holiday warmers and buddy may return, but the others are discontinued. There is a deeper discount after February, but once they're sold out, that's it.  

  • The scents leaving the catalog at the end of the month are listed below. Some of these scents may return in the Fall/Winter catalog but I have no way of knowing until August rolls around which scents will return and which ones are axed for good.  I know I'll be stocking up on Flutter and Honey Pear Cider this month.  ALL BRICKS are being discontinued.  

Sorry for the information overload!  I'm going to break this into two posts.  Be on the lookout for another post pertaining to the new products that will soon be available as well as a few sneak peek photos! I can't wait for the new catalog, though I am sad to see some of my favorites going away. 

As always, don't hesitate to let me know if you have questions.  I'd love to help!  

Have a scentsational day!

An innocent design in snowy white with fluted edges and darling details, Valentine is tied up with pretty polka dot ribbon and accented by a cherry-red heart pendant made of glass.

Linger mixes pink grapefruit, sugared apple, lavish praline, and flirty marshmallow swirl to create a fragrance that says “stay."

Christmas, Christmas time is here...

Christmas songs are running through my head, even if they're not always playing on my stereo.  I love Christmas and everything about it.

Here's one of my favorite Scentsy pairs for Christmas:

Tannenbaum is a beautiful rustic type full size warmer that can actually be left out year round since it's not necessarily just for Christmas!

The perfect scent for Tannenbaum is Festival of Trees.  "Dance in a forest of evergreens as fir needles fall amongst aromatic white cedar and musk, with a wintry whisper of citrus."   It's such a fabulous scent and fits Tannenbaum like no other.  Of course, other scents warm equally well in Tannenbaum, but the trees just pair up perfectly!  It's what I expect to smell in that warmer!

Here's hoping I'll actually get my Christmas tree decorated before Christmas arrives this year.  I have lights on the tree, as well as a star, and even have some cranberries and popcorn, but that's about where it ends.  I'm really looking forward to enjoying time spent with family and friends over the next couple of weeks. As soon as the tree is done, I'll be able to relax and enjoy it.  Well, after the presents are bought or made and wrapped.

This year has just flown by!  I can't believe we're so close to the end!

December's mystery host online party is open.  Here's your chance to earn the host rewards without doing anything other than making a simple purchase.

December's warmer of the month - escape the winter chill with Blizzard. Warm cream blends to black in a sophisticated ombre as enchanting snowflakes fall upon the base and scalloped dish. Elegant and chic, Blizzard is the perfect holiday ornament.

December's scent of the month - Comfort and Joy:  Spicy, familiar woods marry with surprising white florals, pure citrus, and just a nibble of gingerbread for a winter fragrance that’s anything but ordinary.

Here's to a absolutely merry Christmas and wonderful holiday season.  Remember the reason and enjoy spending time with family and friends!

Mystery Host!

November is halfway through and I just wanted to drop a reminder here there's a Mystery Host basket party up on my personal website.  For all of you looking to buy gifts this year, this is a great way to possibly win the rewards of being a host without actually taking the basket or hosting a party anywhere.  Let me know if you have any questions.  I'd be happy to answer them!

So much to say!!

This year is flying by!  There's so much to say and so much to do and not much time left in the year!

November's Mystery Host Online Basket Party is up!  Stop by and place an order using this link.  Pass it to your friends and family. If there is at least $150 worth of orders placed in the month of November, the winner will receive all the host rewards for the party!  Only orders placed online through the party link will qualify.

November's scent of the month is Midnight Fig.  There are so many elements to this scent. I love the fruity and earthy scents mixed together.

November's warmer of the month is Plum Garland, a beautiful sandy colored swirly vine and leaf pattern on a rich plum colored warmer.  It is the perfect decoration for the holidays that can remain displayed all year round.

Holiday warmers (and a Buddy!) are still available.  Hurry and place your orders soon!  These warmers are going very quickly!  Bluster (snowman) has sold out completely and is currently on backorder.

Post a comment here or send me an email at jodi at hold the flame dot com to book a holiday party to help with the cost of gift giving or stocking up your own personal stash. Remember, there are many ways to party with Scentsy, including home parties, basket parties, and online parties.  I say the best party is to have all three!

Here's to a happy November!  Think of all the things for which you're thankful.  Write them down every day.  Be specific.  If you do it for the entire month of November it will be easy to continue throughout the year and even easier then to answer when Thanksgiving rolls around.

October Scent and Warmer of the Month

Autumn Stroll: Amble under a bright harvest moon, leaves crunching underfoot, as peppery cinnamon mingles with dusky plum and warm wood incense to create a spicy and comforting fragrance.

Snapshot:  Let your photos glow as warmly as the memories they capture. When Snapshot is switched on, a picture window set into a square, ivory-and-taupe column radiates light from within its ropey, silver frame. All that's missing is your favorite photo.

Add homey Autumn Stroll to Snapshot and you have the perfect gift for a loved one - or yourself.

Giving, Caring, and Sharing

Please help us raise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities while donating Sasha Buddies to Cook Children's Hospital in Fort Worth and the Scent Paks to the United States Military.
Our goal is to donate 500 bears to Cook Children's, to be collected by December 15 and delivered on December 19.  The net proceeds from every Sasha sold will be donated to RMHC.  Help us blow this goal out of the water and make some very sick children extremely happy!

- Team I Love This Bar!

If you'd rather donate to a different hospital or a different cause or just purchase the bear for a gift or your own personal use, the net proceeds will still go to RMHC.  Help us help RMHC help others!

September Scent and Warmer of the Month

Pumpkin Marshmallow:

Sticky, sweet marshmallow
spooned onto fresh-baked pumpkin
and wrapped in a graham cracker crust.


As the leaves change to brilliant oranges, reds, and yellows,
bring the joy of autumn indoors with Maize,
a bold vessel crafted in earthy, golden saffron.
