Girl Scout Leadership Council – 2012


WOW!  What a weekend!  Blanca Banda, the Bilingual Membership Growth Specialist of the Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland coordinated the most fantastic Leadership Council program!  She had local motivational speaker, Gail Foley, who opened up the program with her great enthusiasm, sharing a montage of her experiences and how she harnessed enthusiasm in her own life.  Her challenge?

Force yourself to ACT Enthusiastic, and you’ll BECOME enthusiastic!
“Make a high and holy resolve that you will DOUBLE the amount of enthusiasm that you have been putting into your work and into your life.   If you carry out that resolve, you will probably DOUBLE your income and DOUBLE your happiness.”
How can I begin?  There is just one rule:  To become enthusiastic, ACT enthusiastic!

There were a number of workshops offered to the Girl Scout leaders to challenge them, spark new ideas for their troops, and offer them refresher workshops.  I loved the brochure they handed out with the information for the day…here are some of the powerful words used in that brochure:













Three separate one-hour Zentangle workshops were held which inspired these leaders to imagine!  Just Imagine — A new art form to share with their troops, A new way to connect each girl with each other and their troop leader, A new way to discover their inner artist.

I had such a great time sharing the Zentangle method, watching as each leader began to see a beautiful Zentangle image start to appear, and how excited they were when they completed their very first Zentangle!  Here is a peek at some of the images and the troop leaders who worked on them…

The Girl Scout emblem was created by me using a template from the Girl Scout Pathway Definitions.


Happy Tangling!
