CTMH Convention Highlights

Monday, July 16, 2012

I just returned from Close to My Heart’s national convention in Dallas, Texas and my mind is still playing catch-up with all the excitement over the last 4 days.

It was a Rootin’-Tootin’ Good Time

My upline, Julie Reynolds, really loves her team.

Our days at convention were packed with information about upcoming products and changes for Close to My Heart. The energy is always high, with 1,300 consultants screaming and clapping with excitement at every morning’s opening sessions. Hilarious skits and videos by corporate staff had us all bustin’ a gut.

Moving Message from our Keynote Speaker

Stacy Julian is one of my personal idols. Founder of Big Picture classes, Simple Scrapbooks magazine, and all around nice gal, she’s even more special because we both live just a few miles apart.

Every time I hear Stacy speak, I’m amazed by her insight, her compassion, and her message to scrapbook from the heart.

Stacy created a video for our convention, you can watch it below. Have your tissues handy.

From Stacy’s Blog:

“My message is that time moves so very fast and most of the time we do too. But, we can choose (with practice) to slow down and to savor simple everyday moments. We can pull out our cameras and take pictures and we can live with these pictures and let them work magical things inside of us. Doing so will make us more grateful, more content, more aware and more happy. There is so much that is overwhelming and challenging in life. Efforts to capture and share your memories should be neither.”

Tresa- You did a fabulous job on your artwork and presentation! I wish you would have had more time and a quieter room:) This was my 1st convention and I must say/sing "I'm so dizzy, my head is spinning"!
