Sorry it has been so long since our last post. We blinked and it was the end of November. We are really busy in Product Development working on the end of 2010 products. That's right, we work sometimes over a year out on our products. We have so many fun new things coming out next year, I can't wait for you to see them all.
I was thinking about what our next post should be about and it struck me this morning. With Thanksgiving later this week, I started thinking about how thankful I am for Creative Memories, our Consultants and customers. Honestly it is so easy to get caught up in the usual day to day activities like submitting this paperwork, picking colors for this project and what should this artwork look like that it is easy to forget how special our products are. I love the fact that the products we develop and create go on to touch so many lives. Either by helping someone earn extra income for their family, allowing someone to have an afternoon or evening away just to work on their stories and memories or by touching someone in more ways than we could ever imagine through the gift of an album. It is a blessing and honor to work for a company that touches so many lives in so many differerent wasy.
I've been asked many times if I scrapbook. You better believe it I do! I've created close to 50 albums either for our family or as gifts (my favorite). I love looking back at my albums and the pictures and stories and so does my husband and 3 year old son. As I mentioned I love giving albums as gifts and I could share a number of stories about the gift albums I’ve given but I will just share my most recent gift. In September my brother turned 40 and I wanted to give him something special as we always have been and still are very close. A few weeks before his birthday I decided it would be really cool to make him an album listing 40 reasons why we love him. It was a very simple album, some pages didn't have pictures, some did, but I listed the reasons like great friend, supportive husband, super father, the best older brother ever and so on and shared stories of why I thought that. I gave it to him on the night of his birthday and was so glad I did. We too often forget to tell the people closest to us what they mean to us and an album is the perfect way to do that.
With the holidays just around the corner I'd love to hear your reasons of why you are thankful for Creative Memories or share one of your favorite album gifts that you have given. And with Christmas only a month away, I encourage you to give the gift of memories and stories to someone on your list.
