Becoming a Close To My Heart Consultant - My "Why"

With the CTMH April 2014 promotion called "Discover the Art of Business" (more details to follow below) being such a fabulous deal, I wanted take a few moments of your time to tell you about why I decided to become an Independent Consultant for the company.  I believe that each individual will have their own "why", but want to share mine with you.

I have been a customer of Close To My Heart for many years now.  I think I discovered it around 2008 or 2009 when my best friend Jennifer told me about it.  I had been a scrapbooker for many years before that, but was never dedicated to a specific product line or designer.  I always looked for what was on sale at the big craft stores and for what appealed to me visually.  When Jennifer passed on an Idea Book (catalog) to me, I was taken by how everything coordinated and even though I had never stamped before, I purchased a few paper and sticker kits when another friend, Dee was a hostess.

I liked that the company had designed everything to go together.  My kit came with paper and stickers that were coordinated and I easily completed several pages using the one kit.  After that, I sought out a consultant in my neighborhood and became a frequent attendee of her crops and a loyal customer.  Over the next few years, I dabbled more into adding accents to my pages with stamps and inking.  I used more embellishments on my pages and even made a few cards.  I loved the products and looked forward to the newest Idea Book for more inspiration and trendy items.  

In 2012, I made the decision to become a consultant.  One of the reasons was, of course, to get a discount off of my own supplies!  Let's be honest, hobbies cost money.  A 22 percent discount was a great incentive.  However, I also wanted to expand my social circle and meet others who loved to paper craft.  I love people and I especially love crops!  I have such fun getting together with other ladies while chatting, laughing, and creating!

Shortly after I made the commitment to join the company, my husband and I moved to a brand new city; Jacksonville, Florida.  I love where we live, but didn't know a soul here.  Guess what?  Scrapbooking changed all that quickly!  I created a meet up group for paper crafters, committed to hosting it monthly, and met so many wonderful ladies in the past year and a half! 

Close To My Heart has given me the opportunity to grow my circle of friends and earn income!  My business is growing so much, I now host two crops a month plus teach card making and scrapbooking workshops!  See what I'm up to now at Scrapbook, Stamp and Socialize!

If you love to scrapbook, stamp or make cards, consider joining Close To My Heart.  It has changed my life for the better and I believe it can do the same for you.
