Ahni and Zoe Now Orphans


Creative Memories Co-Founder, Rhonda Anderson

Creative Memories Co-Founder Rhonda Anderson resigned from Ahni and Zoe on Sunday, February 23, leaving the girls without a mother. Born on October 22, 2013, Ahni and Zoe have suffered growing pains, including a brief bout with Tourette’s Syndrome and periodic delusions of inawink photo app. Now they are out on their own, looking for success. I hope they find it. Sometimes, a little adversity is all that is needed.

Unlike some mothers, Rhonda Anderson has not disappeared without a trace. Instead, the re-energized Rhonda has joined Youngevity, the parent company of Heritage Makers. She is planning to launch a line of traditional scrapbooking products and hopes to build a consultant network as part of Youngevity.

    I feel less like an orphan and more like a graduate but I do wish her all the best.

    Sadly, I think A&Z is suffering from shrinking, not growing. It’s what happens when you drop digital from a digital world as well as traditional. I understand bankruptcy, but something needs to be worked out and quick cause they are losing people left and right and it’s not all because of digital but that is a huge chunk. When their own sales leader says “You don’t like the design of the pages? Put paper over it!” She is sending her customers to a competitor as A&Z doesn’t sell paper.

    FYI Rhonda’s new company is called Memories for Life. From what I could gather from the consultant I spoke with, she’s working with the same vendors she did in CM. The product they’ll be making for Memories for Life are the book-cloth albums (don’t know if they’re the flex-hinge, but it might be unlikely since I think CM owns the patent on that…I believe…), blank white pages (I’m sure black and beige are soon to follow), markers (not clear about colors), the trimmer (more tools to follow….

      They are supposed to fit the old CM pages at Heritage Makers or “Memories for Life.”
      What bothers me about this is if you can’t afford the points, then you’re paying 25% more
