Fellow CM advisor Stefani Jones recently wrote a blog post (http://www.creativememories.com/your-biz-your-way) on the various ways Creative Memories consultants choose to run their businesses, and I was featured as a consultant that loves to offer weekend "crop-til-you- drop" workshops and retreats. Boy is that ever the truth!
Imagine taking a weekend away (you deserve it by the way) and driving up to a beautiful sight like this:
|Ruth Mountain Bed and Breakfast in Arab, AL|
|Springville Camp and Conference Center in Springville, AL|
The worries of life start to slowly slip away as you imagine the days ahead of you. Just the thought of a good night's sleep and some good food (lovingly prepared by someone else!) put you in a good mood as the weekend stretches out in front of you.
|A scrapbooking retreat is good for the soul|
|A hotel, a conference center, or someone else's house means no laundry and no dishes all weekend long!|
As you find your spot to work, you are greeted with a gift at your seat and plenty of space to spread out and organize your photo projects. You don't get this treatment at home!
|Tables set up ready to go, all I need is for my scrappers to show!|
|It's not a retreat without a garbage bag for scraps and a goody bag filled with candy, tickets for prizes, and other assorted trinkets for the weekend|
|See the latest products and have the supplies you need when you need them|
|Completed albums to share for inspiration|
|Grand prize winners walk away happy (contests are usually based on completed pages)|
|Total strangers become friends in no time|
|Not unusual for someone to complete 3 Fast2Fabulous albums in one weekend - that's a lot of life documented!|
|Walk away happy with completed pages!|
|Sharing ideas is a big draw for many people|
