Some things are better together.
Like peanut butter and chocolate.
Sunshine and coconut oil.
Snow and mittens.
Diet Dr Pepper and crushed ice.
Some things are better one at a time.
Like running a home business.
After 4 years with Thirty-One Gifts, I have come to the conclusion to close that chapter of my life and close my Thirty-One business.
I came on board Thirty-One when my former scrapbooking business was going through some major changes/restructuring. I'm happy to report that has all been straightened out and Creative Memories is back with completely new ownership and management. Creative Memories is no longer a party plan business but I will be offering Workshops and Special Events throughout the year as well as my new YouTube channel where I will be sharing tips and ideas on memory keeping! After 20+ years in the memory keeping business, it is good to be "back!"
This past Fall I also started teaching Preschool part-time. Plus having 4 kids in 4 different schools...well, something had to give. I was just being spread too thin!
My Thirty-One website will be up in August and September. I will have an Appreciation Event for my past Hostesses in October and then officially done. I am actually super energized by this decision! I should have done it earlier but I truly do love the Thirty-One products and people and I am eager to try to do it all. But I would rather try to do a few things well than too many things weakly. Memory Keeping fits right in with my other interests - such as writing, blogging, preschool teaching, helping, playing with paper and encouraging.
I learned a lot by being part of Thirty-One and I do not regret the diversion. It is a chapter of my life I will cherish (and probably put in a scrapbook)! Thank you to all my wonderful hostesses, customers, team, and upline leaders who made this possible.
