Wednesday Wisdom

Hi Everyone!
I have a short and sweet Wednesday Wisdom for you. How many of you know what Close to My Heart's mission statement is? Anyone? :) Here it is:

We show you how to celebrate relationships through the art of scrapbooking and stamping. Faster. Simpler. Easier.

It is so true! Let me share a story. My grandmother passed away last week. She was 103! Can you believe it? She was a sweetheart and we love her a lot. She didn't have a lot of possessions left, and had already given away many of her belongings when she moved into a nursing home. But do you know what she kept close to her? Photos of her loved ones and a scrapbook that our family had made for her years ago. All of the families and grandchildren had made simple scrapbook layouts (many of them are not scrapbookers) and put them together in an album. And it was one of her dearest possessions. That scrapbook celebrated her relationship with her family. When we teach customers about scrapbooking we are not just selling product to them. We are helping them commemorate dear relationships and memories that they will treasure. So, don't be shy to share what you do with others because you feel like you may be "pushy." You are really helping them celebrate what is most precious to them!
