Memory Works: Simple Stories “Daily Grind” in Stock

If you hadn’t already heard, MEMORY WORKS is closing effective 12-31-13. I wrote about the sad saga HERE. So this month is my last hurrah, so to speak :(

I wanted to let you know that “Daily Grind”, the newest line from SIMPLE STORIES is in stock and you can see it all HERE.

I already have some Daily Grind in hand myself. Wanna’ see? I got a sampling of the loose papers, Elements papers, and the Simple Elements chevron papers. I’m showing you the front and back sides of the papers. I also got the bingo card paper, Sn@p Cards, and Sn@p Cuts.

How about some “Daily Grind” inspiration from the Simple Stories DT?

If I’ve convinced you of its pure beauty and necessity in your life, I’d really appreciate one last order from ya’ :) Just check it out HERE, then e-mail me with your order: scrapbook obsession(at)gmail(dot)com.

I’ll send you a Paypal invoice right away and once that’s cleared, Memory Works will ship “Daily Grind” {or any other scrappy goodness that falls into your cart} straight to you from the home office in Utah within 1-2 business days.

Hope to hear from you!

Memory Works is Closing Effective 12-31-13

As a Memory Works Consultant since 2007, I’m very saddened by this news :( Here is the press release I received in the last hour:

PRESS RELEASE:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
MemoryWorks 640 West 1100 South, Suite 100 Ogden, UT 84404 801-782-5901
November 1, 2013

MemoryWorks, a direct-sales scrapbook company, announces today it plans to cease operations, effective December 31st, 2013. The company will continue to operate a retail location at 640 West 1000 South, Suite 100 in Ogden, Utah for the immediate future. Employees of MemoryWorks will be absorbed into Simple Stories, a sister company.

MemoryWorks was started in 2002 by Kevin and Amber Crowell. The company experienced strong growth throughout its 12 years of operation. In 2009, MemoryWorks released an exclusive scrapbook collection, Life Documented, to its consultants. As a result of the success of the collection, Simple Stories was created in 2010, a wholesale scrapbook business. Since that time, Simple Stories has experienced phenomenal growth in its short, 3 year tenure.

Kevin Crowell, President, commented, “We are very grateful for the devoted MemoryWorks consultants that we have worked with over the years. While the decision to cease operations has been difficult, it enables us to focus our resources fully on the continued growth and expansion of Simple Stories”.

Even though I assumed something had to change in the near future, I had hoped/expected it would be a renewed interest in the Consultant side of the business. I was brimming with ideas of how to make things better for Memory Works Consultants.

The other option in my mind was this: Memory Works closing. Yet I’m still in shock. I’ll write more later . . . just wanted to get the news out.

To all the other Memory Works Consultants out there {{{BIG HUGS}}}.
