This week is an exciting, fun, and busy week for everyone that works for Creating Keepsakes, as well as the Dream Team and Contributing Writers. On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday we are holding our yearly Editorial Board meeting.
Are you wondering what an Editorial Board meeting is? It’s a time when we get together to brainstorm and plan for future magazines and special issues. And let me tell you, there’s a lot of creativity in that room!
Most of our Dream Team members and Contributing Writers will fly in on Monday, but a few will join us for meetings through Skype (isn’t technology amazing??). To prepare for the meetings, we each had “homework” to do that involved reviewing the past year’s magazines (content and covers) and identifying trends. Sounds easy, but it took several hours.
One of the really great things about these meetings is not only the planning that is accomplished but the bonding that happens. Some of these ladies have known each other for years and others are just getting acquainted.
We’re excited for the coming days, for the ideas that are generated, the stories we’ll have to tell about each other, the creativity shared, and so much more.
Have a great Monday and make sure you plan time to create!
