Hi and welcome to my site. My name is Cristy Colombo and I am a Independent Designer with Chalk Couture and a lover of DIY crafts. I have three awesome kids ages 20, 26, and 29. My husband Martin and I live in Texas. He is my biggest supporter of all the things that I can manage to get into. We love spending our weekends together (when I’m not lost in my craftroom) and we enjoy our breweries. Love him to pieces and I just feel blessed to have this man by my side. I know you didn’t come here to hear all this mushy stuff so if you want to know how I got start, please keep on reading below 🙂
My start with Chalk Couture & first video ever!
What can I say about my Chalkology journey other that I definitely didn’t start there at all. You see I was with another direct sales company for many many years. I did it for business then personal use then gave the business another shot. I didn’t go anywhere with it so yes, I quit.
Then getting close to Halloween 2017 I was at Michael’s with my husband looking for a wreath when my husband said “Why don’t you just make one?” Well I still bought a wreath and yes, I started making and selling wreaths. With the money I earned from sales, I began to build up my craft room. I bought my Cricut and everything you can think of and I thought I was done, I nearly have everything you can imagine. Ahhh, I can be in my craft room for hours.
This is where things take a turn. I follow many people on social media, one in particular caught my eye when he was showing off a product I had never seen. I was in awe and continued to watch for about a month before I said, “I’m not watching any more!” So I purchased the starter kit because I knew the kit offered the greatest savings and benefits which for me was the discount. You see I do not like paying full price and it wasn’t even a thought for me…..automatic 40% off, YES, thank you! Besides, I was only thinking personal use and I’m good because this was something that I didn’t have in my craft room and thought I can decorate my home.
I actually recorded the unboxing of my kit, I was nervous, I forgot to mention certain facts, and I actually didn’t get my first design right but WHATERVER I told myself.
I was having fun and then as I continued to follow my upline, I noticed things that never caught my eye like the business part. The company I had joined was less than a year old (7 months old when I joined), Less than 9k Designers, one of the easiest products to use coming from the Cricut world and the earning potential. This guy I was following was able to leave his job after a year of working with this product. I was floored!
I could no longer sit on this and not try to work it as a business since this is a product I truly loved working with. In fact, I’m becoming a little obsessed and with only four weeks into the business, I have a team of five and growing.
