I live in a small town in Manitoba called St. Francois Xavier with my husband and two greyhounds. We have one son who lives in Saskatchewan. My journey with CM started when I was exposed to it at a craft sale. My sister told me to come and check it out but I would not because I knew I would fall in love. And I did! That was almost 25 years ago. CM is in my blood and not a day goes by that I don’t think of CM in one way or the other – what kind of event am I going to plan next – thinking of a customer who would love product – wonder what a particular CM sister was doing that day – what exciting news can I share with my team – when is the next launch day. CM is part of my family. I am very passionate about helping people celebrate special occasions or move forward through a difficult time by documenting and sharing their lives “sweet” spots. Since then, I have made such memorable friendship that will last a lifetime, documented so much of my family’s history, helped hundreds of people start what seemed like an overwhelming task and built a business and team that I admire and treasure. THIS is my life.
Christine has always been a paper and sticker Queen. From collecting stickers in a sticker book as a little girl, to her vast array of stationery and paper collections in her bedroom as a seven year old, the passion for creativity started at a young age. Christine has always loved photos and had a very nostalgic soul, so being introduced to CM back in 2002 was a perfect fit, and she immediately signed up as a consultant when she was in college at the age of 19. She had no customers for a while, but scrapping changed her world and that passion became contagious as she grew her base shortly after. As a broadcast journalism major with a minor in marketing, plus 15 years of experience teaching English and writing, and with success as a leader in social media in other direct sales companies, Christine blends all her skill sets to communicate to her customers and other Advisors the tools they need to get organized, get inspired, and get pages done with stories to tell forever. Now that’s she’s married to her soulmate and has a beautiful one year-old boy, with another baby on the way, her purpose through scrapbooking is to relive those moments from years past and to capture the moments from today. Christine still loves collecting all those stickers like she did when she was seven. But instead of being trapped in a sticker-collector book from the ‘80s, they are now next to all the photos she loves and the stories they tell.
