‘Tis the Season – No, we have not rewound the calendar to December. It’s Girl Scout Cookie Season. Happy days….
I’ve been a Girl Scout leader since my daughter who is now in 6th grade was in 1st grade. We have had many adventures, but some of our favorite revolve around selling cookies. Can’t help it – I was raised in a retail family and I like to sell. My daughter has the same genes.
We did realize early on that it is super-important to stay organized (you wanted how many boxes?) and to show our gratitude to her customers. We discovered early that a very personal way to do this is by creating a 4″x6″ card in my digital scrapbook program. I’ve been using Storybook Creator Plus from Creative Memories. Sadly, with the closing of CM, you can no longer get this fantastic program, but there are others out there that you can use. I use my digi scrap program for MANY things that have nothing to do with scrapbooking.
I print out a bunch of these cards as photos at the beginning of the season and we are ready to go. We have done a number of fun cards over the years. They often involve a photo of her and the cookies in some way, shape or form. This year she opted for no photo, but we came up with something very “tweeny”.
The ones I print for her actually have a note of thanks at the bottom and her name, but I’ve posted one that you can actually use yourself!
I’d love to hear what other Girl Scouts do. Happy Cookie Sales!
