$1 a day makes for AWESOME smartness

You have family, you may have a 'team' you are leading with your business and you have friends. Would you spend $1/day from now to Christmas to make some wonderful thank you and tribute gifts for them?

Smart Shopping Lesson

10 months until Christmas. (Including March)

10 months x $30 ($1/day) = $300 investment = $400 return! (And that's just on the Bronze level for Club HM!) Now look at the price list and see all the terrific things you can get for just $1/day! Scroll to the bottom of that page to see all the pricing and Club HM choices.

Don't need that many points (1 point = 1 retail $ with HM) for Christmas?

Don't worry! You'll have birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Easter, and don't forget those "Today was special because of you" recognition days!

Use our Heritage Makers website as your layaway plan, plug into the online webinar classes (two Thursday evenings a month) and get started having fun and creating gifts right away.

Here is a project I had fun doing after our Leadership Retreat last year. It is a wonderful way to preserve memories and stay 'heart string to heart string' with your team.

I also created a "Goal Focus" calendar for both me and some of my gang to keep us plugged in working towards the Leadership event for this coming fall. It is amazing to relive those special times.

If you wish to jump in and start making some of these for your team, family, friends go to my creative website to sign in and get started on Club HM right away. (Make sure it shows a photo of Ron and I on the left so you can get my help along the way). There is also a sign up bonus where you can obtain $100 in publishing for a mere $50 the first time you join as a member of Club HM. So the very first month you join (ie Bronze level) you would spend $30+$50 and benefit by having $140 in publishing $. You ask, "Really - what's the strings attached?" Nothing except to pay you these discounts you need to make a 3 month commitment, after that is goes month by month like a subscription. You can change your membership status after the 3 month commitment period.

Contact us if you need help with registering.

Learning how to Resize Photos

It's the time of year when you may have received a new camera that takes extra large photos. It's also the best time to create your annual year book from last year's photos or create that 2012 calendar to help you remember all the dates you forgot last year. (ps if you publish either of those this month you will save 10% right at the check out).

So now you're ready to start that new photo project but all your photos are too large to upload to studio.
So here is the answer with step by step instructions.

See our HM blog post and save it on your computer for future reference.

Check out our website at and use January Resolution month to get some prizes. Until January 16th you can pledge to Make Something Special as in Publish 12 in 2012 and after you fill out the online pledge form you are entered into the draw. By the way there are 12 prizes. By pledging it also helps me so I'm aware of what projects interest you. I'm published over 100 projects personally so I can assist in a more thorough manner by knowing what interests you.

2012 - Make Something Special and Make it a Great Year!
