My Story

Here is "My Story" for Act 1 of the Recruit Crew:

It all started when I was looking to start scrapbooking. I was looking for places to go, and I came across a "Grand Opening" for Joey Pogorel's Studio. There were SO many colors and different types of tools. I didn't know what more than half of the stuff was, and Joey was so helpful with everything. They were showing us how to use the Big Shot, and I even made my first "make and take". I kept going out and then back in and just hanging around touch EVERYTHING! She had a BIG basket with the starter kit, and I casually asked her about it. She wasn't pushy at all, which I liked....but I still didn't know if it was something that I wanted to do as a "on the side" type of job.

I was suppose to take a class at a different scrap shop, but I got a call the day of the class and was told that it had been canceled because I was the only one that had signed up. I called up Joey, who was also having a class, and asked if I she had any room. She said she did, so I went over....I was the only one that was there besides her! I thought that it was pretty cool that she didn't cancel her class even though I was the only one that was there. That showed me that she wasn't in it just for the money, but for the customers. We talked again about me being a possible recruit, and I signed up the next day!

I really like doing this whole crafting thing. It's not my full time job, but when I have some spare time I do a little of this or that. I've even started up a Technique Tuesday class of my own, and have 2 clubs! I hope that one day I can have at least half the customer base that my wonderful upline has.

Thanks for reading my story,
Maxine
