My name is Shannon "Dabling" hence the title :) I am a mother of 3, stay at home mom, Creative Memories Consultant, and photographer. I have been a consultant twice so far, and have had my home photography studio for 7 years.

My goal for the year 2010 is to "Focus on Photos" and my mission is to help others with the same goal.

I love what I do and have met the most wonderful people through both of my business's. I hope that I can continue helping others.

Monday: Reflection

With the economy going the way it is and with all the natural disasters that have happened in the last few years, I keep thinking what am I  doing to prepare myself if something happened to me. I started thinking of my priorities.

1. Food. I have to have food to feed  my family and to survive.

2. Clothes and supplies. Like a 72 hour kit. Flashlights, etc what we would take with us in case of an emergency.

3.  And our pictures are a priority to me and my kids (even Riley loves looking at the albums). With my love for photos I keep thinking would they be easy to grab if I had 12 hours notice to evacuate?

I would have to answer yes! Because of Creative Memories Organizational tools I could grab my two power sort boxes, finished albums and my Laptop and external Hard Drive I would have all my photos in 10 minutes.

Now I do have about 9 months of food storage

but I don't have 72 hour kits yet.  But I am getting there.

Of course I could never plan for everything but I am doing what I can and what's important to me.
