Merry Christmas and Welcome 2016

mitchell family christmas 2015 Well that year flew bye so quickly. We started out as a family of 5 living and working together and throughout the year each child left and it was just Brian and I. So happy to get together for Christmas even if it was for only two days.

Sam joined the army in April 2015 that was a proud moment for all of us. Polly decided she wanted to try flatting and moved out in June 2015 and continues to manager Hungry Jacks. Our youngest was concreting and still at home but after we got an offer to manage a caravan park, he moved to Moree with his Uncle to work down there.

I certainly didn’t get to scrapbook much or exercise much or achieve some of the goals I set but I have been true to myself and not given up my faith.kingfisher

The caravan park turned out not to be what it should have been and after 5 months of 7 days a week we left.  I got a job straightway working on Fraser Island and Brian is resting up.  View is the jetty on the Island.


So now we are already in 2016.  I have chosen to leave behind some of 2015 which hasn’t been serving me like sugar,  now that is a challenge.  I’m about to go on a 10 day detox with this PRODUCT if you would like to join with me sign up and let me know so we can encourage each other.

I will get back to scrapbooking, now that we have moved to a house where I can get my gear out.  So I am with two different companies, both allow you to join yourself for a fee and just purchase what you want when you want.  Click on the name and it will take to you the site Our Memories For Life (this is under a sister company called Youngevity which Rhonda Anderson is with after the old Creative Memories Closed).

Creative Memories is back again and you can join this HERE and order your fav products again, no min orders for either of these.  It just $59 to join in Australia and $49 US.

What are your dreams for this year.  I still believe we need to have a vision in order to get anywhere even if we don’t know all the little details.  I wish you every success in everything you put your hand to. xxx Julia


Cheers to the outgoing year, 2015:
May the good times live on in our memories,
and may we learn lessons from the troubling times
that will make us stronger and better than ever.


Cheers to 2016:
For each and every one of you,
may it be filled with significant steps
toward the fulfillment of your fondest wishes.
May it bring you more joy and success
And less grief and regret.


Cheers to your dreams…
May you never stop believing in them
And taking the actions that will make them a reality. 
In this coming new year, let us focus on our goals
and work diligently toward them,
and yet let’s all try to go with the flow a little more
and stress a little less.


And most important, cheers to all of you.
Appreciate yourselves and each other in the New Year
as Marcia and I appreciate all of you now.

Let’s focus on each other’s good points
and choose to overlook minor annoyances. 
Let us encourage more and criticize less,
Give more and need less.
And whenever we can, let us create harmony, 
peace and mutual happiness in 2016.


Let us start fresh, right now,
to make this the very best year ever.
Welcome to 2016: Enjoy the journey!

YOUNGEVITY home for 3 of the most influential women in the entire MEMORY KEEPING industry

YOUNGEVITY is now the home for 3 of the most influential women in the entire MEMORY KEEPING industry



We are so excited to welcome our newest Brand Ambassador, Lisa Bearnson, and a new product line, Anthology, by Lisa Bearnson, into our Youngevity Memory Keeping family.

Lisa started Creating Keepsakes magazine at age 32 which flew off the shelves and grew to 500,000 readers. She published 13 books, sold millions on QVC, and appeared on the Today Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, and many others. She was featured in People Magazine, top newspapers, and countless trade publications.  She is known around the world for her ideas, creativity, and role in the scrapbooking industry.  We are thrilled to have her as Youngevity’s newest Brand Ambassador!

I believe working with Lisa Bearnson in the Memory Keeping division of Youngevity, will make a big impact on our future.  Lisa’s experience in communication, scrapbooking, training, and all things creative will really unify our existing brands and so much more.

YOUNGEVITY is now the home for 3 of the most influential women in the entire MEMORY KEEPING industry.

  1. SHARON GIBB MURDOCH, Co-Founder of HERITAGE MAKERS, an online Storybooking/Digital Scrapbooking/Home and Business Product company, officially started in 2004.  Heritage Makers was sold to Youngevity in 2013.
  2. RHONDA ANDERSON, Co-Founder of CREATIVE MEMORIES, a Scrapbooking company she started in 1987.  She is also the founder of OUR MEMORIES FOR LIFE, a Youngevity brand created in 2014.
  3. And now…LISA BEARNSON, Co-Founder of CREATING KEEPSAKES MAGAZINE, created in 1996, a published author, and a hugely popular resource for anyone interested in the memory keeping industry.  ANTHOLOGY, by Lisa Bearnson, will be available exclusively through Youngevity in Summer 2015.


Hear what they say:Dr, Sharon Gibb Murdoch,

“Lisa is huge to the industry.  She allows us now to record memories any way we want…you’ve got the winning team.”  Rhonda Anderson, “I am so excited to welcome LB to the Youngevity family.  Lisa is a well-known name in the scrapbooking world.  With Lisa and her products we are able to reach a whole new audience that we haven’t touched before.” 

Lisa Bearnson, “Anthology will be a collection of fresh, fashion-forward designs founded on the principle that quality scrapbooking and memory keeping does not have to be difficult.”  

What is the result when 3 of the biggest experts in the Memory Keeping industry come together in the home of a publicly traded, financially stable company, YOUNGEVITY?  I believe that quite simply, it’s the best source for your memory keeping products, training, and support community, which also results in the best Direct Sales/Network Marketing business opportunity available.
Youngevity is a healthy lifestyles company, founded by Dr. Joel Wallach, a legend in the health and wellness industry.

 Doctor Wallach has dedicated his life to his passion, which is changing the world by teaching others to take responsibility for their health.“Lots of people dream about changing the world, but few ever try it.”  Doctor Wallach knows how to make a difference.

With the passion these three women have, the influence they have had on helping others preserve the important stories and memories in our lives, and with our team of passionate distributors,YOUNGEVITY is a perfect fit.
