This is a question consultants ask of themselves often.  Why?  Why did I start to scrapbook?  Why did I become a consultant?  Why did I go to Convention?  The answers are often the same if you ask any of us, but the answer may also change over the years.

What's my why?

Memory Keeping - I love creating beautiful scrapbook layouts for myself, family and friends to preserve their memories.  CTMH has wonderful products to work with and 4 exclusive Cricut cartridges.

I'm working on our family vacation album for 2014 - Mexico-  to celebrate the marriage of my niece Amy to Brent.  It was a wonderful week with family & friends -  tons of fun in the sun - much needed in January!

 I love to create hand made cards.
 Discount - You know me - I love a discount and as a consultant I do receive a discount on my supplies.  I also am able to enjoy special consultant only deals.  Hostesses are always special and are treated with rewards and special gifts just for them.  I love watching my hostesses shop and fill their wish list with FREE products.

Choose your kit - whether you're a card maker or a scrapbooker the choice is yours.  Consultant kits are full of everything you'll need to get started on your journey.  Value packed with products and business supplies.

Trips - Yep, CTMH offers incentive trips for its' consultants - from Hawaii, to Costa Rica to cruises - all are available to everyone at every level to earn.  One of the wonderful trips I attend annually is to Convention - I've been to Washington, D.C., Dallas, TX, California (twice) all with discounted hotel rates and park tickets.

We have become lifelong friends and look forward to meeting up each year at Convention.

People - Absolutely - I love the fellow consultants I have met over the years and treasure the time I get to spend with them.  My customers are my friends and it is very special to share something you love with others.

 Wow!!  One of the highlights of convention was being able to meet and chat with some of the CTMH gurus of crafting.  Pamela O'Connor, Lisa Stenz and Brenda Rose.

These ladies are such talented artists who shared their creativity with us this year.
The beautiful and talented Alyson Mayo.  Always amazed at what she creates.

So that's some of my why - but what always remains a constant why is the people I have met along this journey, from the hobby crafter to the guru of CTMH to the VP's of CTMH - all share the passion of scrapbooking and paper crafting.  We are a unique bunch and you are always welcome at CTMH.
