I just wanted to let you all know what I’ve been up to lately. In addition to flight instructing I’ve also started a new job as a Creative Memories Consultant. Not that I just needed more to keep me busy, but this is something else I enjoy and I think I’ll be able to encourage others with it as well.
What I’ll be doing is helping equip people with the tools and training needed to organize, preserve, display and share their photos and stories. Since digital photography has become so popular, more and more people are taking pictures; it saves time, is cheaper than film and is much easier to share with everyone using e-mail, facebook, etc. While these are all great, I miss getting to hold the pictures in my hands and look at them anytime, whether the computer’s on or not. I know there are a lot of people who, like me, really love their pictures, but don’t know what to do with them, so I’m going to help get those pictures onto pages where they can be enjoyed and remembered again and again.
What’s great about Creative Memories is that it’s more than just your traditional scrapbook supplier. From organizing tools and digital storybook software to custom card and calendar designs, a photo center and much more, there’s something for everyone.
I’m really excited about this new job, because I’ve always enjoyed photography, design and scrapbooking (both traditional and digital), and now I get to share all of that and help others get excited as well. I’ll be teaching classes and having “Crops” where people can come together to work on their projects, share tools and get ideas from each other. I’m also going to be posting tips about photography tricks, scrapbook design ideas, how to make a nice album on a small budget, speed tools, and more on my website along with a schedule of events, so be sure to check it regularly.
Another thing I’ll be doing is called a “Get Together”. If you are at all interested in any of what I’ve been talking about or know of other people that might be then this is a great opportunity. A “Get Together” is basically a chance to learn about what’s new, get some training tips, new ideas, be with friends, have snacks (which I’ll provide), and if you host there are lots of opportunities to earn free products.
Please check out my website to find out more. If you’d rather not host but would like to come to a “Get Together” let me know as well.
