Tasting It!!!

Convention is getting so close, I can taste it! One of my favorite things recently has been getting the opportunity to go to Close to my Hearts annual convention. 4 whole days of creative bliss, time to reconnect with old friends, make some new ones and play with paper to my hearts content!

This year I will be attending with my good friend and downline, Cathy and we are headed to Dallas! Yes, deep in the heart of Texas, we will be creating up a storm. One of our favorite activities is getting to hear about all the new products and progams offered by CTMH and get our hot little hands on the new Fall/Winter Catalog and Idea Book. Every year it just gets better! Close to my Heart does such a good job keeping "on trend" and "innovative." Looking forward to it!

On Sunday the 15th, I will be picked up at our hotel by my fun SIL and BIL along with my sweet MIL to head out to Galveston to sail away on the Carnival Magic!! Yep, it is finally time to celebrate Barbara's big birthday with a cruise. A little delayed, but very much anticipated by all of us. I love these people and can't wait to relax and reconnect with them. Bryan will also get to test out his Scuba Diving skills finally with two dives, one in Roatan and one in Belize....Me? I'll be laying low and relaxing with Larry and Barb on a beach somewhere!! Lot's of pics to share upon my return....

Also will have info on my New Catalog Reveal and Open House. I have been purging and collecting all sorts of fun things to sell and share with my friends as I recently moved my Studio back into a smaller, more usable space. You will all be invited for a tour and some fun creative time soon!
Love ya,

Ooo, that sounds wonderful! I'll be envious - I can't go to convention (again!). But I have a great substitute *wink*.
