A new product, that's what's cooking! Are you looking ahead at Mother's Day Gifts or End of the Year Teacher Gifts? Introducing, the all-new, incredible Heritage Makers cookbook. So many memories are made around the kitchen table...and now, there's a home for all of those delicious recipes and stories.

Our new cookbook is spiral bound with a 3 panel, UV protected cover (in case you're a messy cook like myself). Just think of the possibilities...preserve your families old recipes, give a collection of recipes to a new bride for her bridal shower, or even turn this into a daily planner for yourself!

For FOUR DAYS ONLY (Feb. 23-26/Monday-Thursday), you can get in on a "sneak peek" of the new cookbook. The cookbook won't be available to the general public until March 3, 2009-but you can get yours now-and save BIG!

Buy 4 cookbooks for only $59.95.
That's only $15 per cookbook. (No worries, these are publishing credits...you have time to gather your recipes together!)

WHY I Do What I Do...

I have 11 words that I tell my clients...What I do. Why I do it. How I do it. That's my business in a nut shell. Some of you may think I'm nuts, being so passionate about my Heritage Makers business, and you may be a bit right. Who can say they absolutely LOVE their job? Not many....So...

WHAT I DO...I help people preserve their photos through storybooking. I help people solve their picture problem. I help people strengthen their home and family through story. That is What I Do.

WHY I DO IT...I am a Heritage Maker because our generation is the last generation who has real paper photos (pre-2000 and hand-me-downs from relatives). I will not hand down a memory stick, a hard drive, or a disc to my son. Everyone deserves to read the story behind the photos they take. They say a picture is worth a 1,000 words. Who's writing your 1,000 words?

HOW I DO IT...I do it with our online publishing studio (MAC and PC friendly). I do it with over 35,000 pieces of digital artwork at my disposal. I do it with text boxes that have no word limit. I do it when my son is sleeping or when my husband is giving him a bath. I make time. I do it by learning through other amazing consultants and my team.

I invite you to join me as a workshop host or consultant. But most importantly, as a client. Your picture problem will only get worse. You will never have a less busier time in your life than right now. This company has changed my life and it is my goal as a Heritage Maker Future Diamond Executive to change the lives of others.
