Every time I write an article about Creative Memories, I get a few comments back along the lines of “The old CM is in the past….it’s history. Let it go and move on! There’s no need to keep digging up old dirt.” Here are five reasons that I continue to write about the former Creative Memories:
- My readers like to read about Creative Memories. A typical non-Creative Memories post will get 100-200 views. A post about Creative Memories will get 500-1000 views.
- We can learn from Creative Memories and its response to changes in the market for traditional scrapbooks. According to George Santayana, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
- I spent fourteen years with Creative Memories and am interested in documenting my experiences.
- Many of the issues that affected the former Creative Memories are still relevant to Forever, Youngevity (Our Memories for Life), and CM Group Holdings.
- Creative Memories is a relatively safe subject since my Non-Disclosure Agreement has expired and the former Creative Memories no longer exists. I would love to write more about the projects I am currently working on but unfortunately cannot, except in very general terms.
I had to review many events that happened while I was at Creative Memories for the recent trial, so you can expect to see a few more posts about Creative Memories over the next several months. I always label these posts with a “Creative Memories” tag, so you can skip them if you choose; otherwise enjoy, and I hope to see you on the All About Images blog.

Mark, thank you for blogging about the old CM! As a former consultant, I am very interested in what has as well as what is happening.
Thank you for sharing. I am one who appreciates it.
I value the CM posts. My view, my understanding of the our collective CM journey is like the Blind Men & Elephant story in a way. Only by hearing of others’ experiences can I get a better perspective of why what happened, etc. Thanks Mark!
Thank You Mark! I too love reading about the old CM, even though it’s been 11 years since my last day. I made many valuable friendships there – thus it’s still a big part of my life!
Thank you for sharing Mark! It is good to learn from mistakes made.
I appreciate any and all you have to share about Creative Memories. As one of many former consultants who trusted and believed & shouldn’t have I am still very interested in what is happening. I hope your blogs will continue for some time.
