Last week, PaperCrafter's Corner posted a review (here) of the Aug 1 Creative Memories Atlanta Premier event, a portion of which was open to the public for the first time ever.
In response to my piece on the event, I received a polite, well-worded email from new Atlanta-area CM consultant Maureen Mahurin. She provided an alternative viewpoint of the event that I thought PCC readers might enjoy reading. With her permission, I share some of her email below:
"I'm sorry you did not enjoy the CM showcase. I was there for the entire thing (all 3 days) and I found it to be well worth the time to attend. (I've been using CM products, since 1998 as well as other brands too). Granted, the general public was only invited to a partial day, still, I found what was said and done during that part was pretty interesting. And the fact that there were 1100 memory preservers in one room was pretty exciting and amazing as well! You could really feel the energy in the room! There were so many amazing people there over the weekend who all share our passion and enthusiasm for preserving stories and memories. It would have been nice for the general public- (non consultants or guests of the consultants) to be able to attend more of it but many parts of it were training and new product sneak peeks that they lined up just for the consultants to see first hand so they would know what was coming in future weeks/months. Lots of exciting things are coming!!
I will admit, CM is not for everyone but for those of us who were there to attend all 3 days, it was definitely worth the time to do so! I would go again in a heartbeat! "
Thank you, Maureen, for taking the time to share your point of view. I enjoyed hearing your take, and I'm sure other PCC readers will too.
