Getting close to the deadlines...

Oh my gosh, Oh my gosh...if you have been following me over the last 75 days, you know that there is just another 13 days til the end of my first three months as a full time consultant with Creative Memories. I say the first three months as my goals of making this my full time job, including income that my hubby and I decided would be enough to work with. It is very exciting to say I am nearing my goals, and with exciting offers this week I will be moving confidently forward.

With 13 days left, I feel there is still a lot to do. Being completely honest, I feel as if this is crunch time...can I do it? Will I connect with enough people to make it really happen? Can just 13 more days be enough to make it happen? Yes, the pressure is on...
I would like to thank you for being receptive to my sharing, and the followers both public and not have supported my mission to make it! I am grateful to you all and in that spirit I am offering some extra special pricing on my top 5 picks...Please enjoy them:)

Following yet?

Here is the latest post from my blog...90 days to make it.  Please read it and join in the fun...Here it is.

Ten days into this plan and guess what? The plan has changed...It has changed in a BIG WAY!! My heart is full and my mission is in place. Of course the idea to succeed is still there, but instead of "making" it, my goal is now to share it with as many people possible. 90 Days is a start, and a good one. There are to be many days following that bring success in so many ways.

After Croptoberfest this weekend and the way I felt while others shared their scrapbooks with me, I did a little soul searching. I was cleaning out some boxes full of projects I had made long ago when I came across a scrapbook of my own. Hmmm...I did not remember making it at all. It was of a trip to Colorado 11 years ago with the kids and hubby, and his sister who came along. There were photos, journaling and everything. This is a genuine scrapbook, no matter how you look at it. Well, I sat right down there on the floor and poured over every page. It brought me right back to that trip, the one that I had almost forgot we even took. My daughter Maddie came down and got right into it too. She didnt care that it was not perfect, that my handwriting was scarecly neat. She did not notice how none of the pages matched in color, or that I cut the photos crooked...She loved it! She brought it upstairs for all to see and shared it with them...while I sat on the floor wondering if I had made any other scrapbooks. I remember making one for Maddies first year, but do not know where it is now. I bet she would do about anything for me to find it. I will look again today.

Even if we do not remember creating these books, the outcome is the same. To look back and share the stories of our lives is a blessing to us, and those that we care about. After I am long gone, they can still remember that trip through photos and journaling. This photo shows you that even a simple scrapbook, one that I will not apologise for not looking "perfect", or made with any CM products can bring a story back to life.

Just do it...get your memories ready to share and do it. Whether on paper, digitally, it does not matter so long as you get started while you can. I am SO glad I did.

Top excuses I hear:

my answer:  It took more time to click to my site, and read the blog post than it could to do a page.
2.  I am not creative...
my answer:  Ok, use pre-designed pages.  Its all set up for you and faster than writing an email.
3.  I dont have any money...
my answer:  Get it free, earn it free, buy it with credit.

How can baby girl be 21?

How can it be?  This little girl was just a baby in our arms.   A wonderful Monday arrival just 21 years ago changed us forever and then we became a family!
Fast forward 21 years to this weekend and taking photos.  The photos that make us laugh, smile, cry, wonder are there to be treasured.  I am so grateful that there is a way to savor these moments and treasure the photos taken in our lives. 
Get ready to love your photos again.  I would love to  help you enjoy your memories...this beautiful digital page took me just 5 minutes to create.  The page was designed, I chose it and clicked to add photos.  One more click to add text and it was finished, ready to share with you!
There is time to do this, I promise.
