Tealited Tidbits and BoB Fund Drive

Did you know that Tealited Tidbits is financially supported each year by the Best of Boards Fund Drive? It is!

Tealited is supported with information contributed by you, the direct sales consultants. It's strongly supported by the Best of Boards Community, and goes hand in hand with BoB. Voluntary donations are made by consultants and visitors who have found BoB and/or Tealited to be helpful in their direct sales business. The annual fund drive takes place October 15 - November 15.

You can show your support and be an active financial supporter of Tealited Tidbits and BoB by sending a small donation to the BoB Fund. You can do this securely online or by mailing a check. Please go here for complete details about the Fund Drive. A suggested donation amount might be the amount you normally pay for your ISP (internet connection) for one month.

Do this for yourself and your fellow consultants who have both contributed to the content of Tealited and benefited from the wonderful ideas submitted. Thank you to each of you who choose to support Tealited and the rest of the Best of Boards Community of Resources!

Jackie Whiteker  (tealited)

Great new game idea!  Jean writes:  "At a party recently, my hostess came up with a Pictionary type game in which we used the fragrances of the candles. For instance for Strawberry-Rhubarb, the artist drew a strawberry which everyone got really quick. Then she was having problems with the Rhubarb & I suggested she draw something that would look like celery & they got it. It was loads of fun."
I just wanted to pass this on to all of you to try at your next show!  Thanks Jean!

Thank you to Tisha J for catching a typo on the Tulip Jar Fundraiser.  It had a total of $49 for 3 jars and should have been $48.  I corrected the xls and pdf files and they have now replaced the old ones.

March 7, 2004

Here's a GREAT TIP for all of you!  Print Steve's Scent Labels and wrap them around your votives so your guests can readily see what the scent is.  This also makes it easy to keep your sampler sorted and it's a great way for new consultants to keep their scents organized as they become familiar with the scents/colors.  Simply wrap the paper label around your votive and wrap tape all the way around to keep the label from peeling off.  Thanks Steve for the great tip!
