Welcome to Part 3 about why I decided to become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I'm enjoying sharing this story and appreciate those who are following along. I would for you to leave comments!
As I continued experimenting with scrapbooking, I met a Creative Memories Consultant and I fell in love with the company. The natural teacher in me was dying to share my new found passion with others so naturally I became a consultant. This was the beginning of a wonderful time in my life. For the next 10 years
I continued with Creative Memories
Meeting many wonderful people
Hosting extravagant workshops
and even attending a national conference. I loved teaching and planning the workshops. With my health improving and my daughters in high school I went back to work and discovered that I no longer had time to be a consultant. However, I continued to scrapbook until a tragic event which changed my life forever. My oldest daughter passed away after an auto accident. For years I could not bring myself to continue making scrapbooks out of the vast number of photos still waiting for a home. I would try, but it was just too hard.
Kristi had enjoyed scrapbooking as well and although it was something that had always brought me such joy – I just didn’t have the heart for it.
During these first years following the accident, I came to realize how important those years of preserving our memories would be. I had at least 20 scrapbooks that included pictures, memorabilia, and stories. I can’t express how precious those albums are to me and to my family. I have also heard from past customers about how scrapbooking has enriched their lives as well.
Today, scrapbooking has taken on many different forms but the idea is still the same - enriching lives by preserving precious memories!
Next time - Stampin' Up!
