Hello friends, Sorry I've been gone so long, I've missed you all and I've missed this blog.
I'm back with a plan though. My November thankful posts are coming up and Close to my Heart has a brand spanking new holiday catalog for you to ooh and ahh over, so lets get on with it!
Yesterday marked the "go live" day for the first ever Close to my Heart Christmas mini catalog "Holidays from the Heart". In it you will find all sorts of fun and creative ways to celebrate the season...Make sure you let me know if you would like to get your hands on your own personal catalog and I will make that happen...
Look, even the front page has some wonderful home décor trees made with the new "Sparkle and Shine" paper pack. I am currently working on a tree for Halloween and will be back in a day or two to show you what I came up with....fun even with a broken glue gun, right Lori ?!?!
I am planning an open house on Saturday, November 9th and hope you can join me sometime during the day to reconnect with your crafty side, put together a cute project or two and have some festive fall snacks and beverages. Be on the lookout for your invite soon...
There will be lots of opportunity to win prizes and sign up for some fun workshops to help you with those last few teacher gifts, your gift wrapping and making this a special holiday full of traditions new and old. Hope to see you there!
Also on the horizon is a customer appreciation day where you can come and create all day for free to thank you for your business and friendship all year. You won't want to miss it...(invites for this to come early December).
That's enough for now, but be sure to check back for my 30 days of thankful and updates on upcoming classes, crops and workshops to help with your holiday gift giving and decorating!
If you are ready to get to work on your holiday projects and need product, be sure to head to my online website by clicking on the "Shop With Me" button on the right side of my blog and place your order 24/7, even in your jammies!
Sounds familiar doesn't it! Can't believe it has been almost 10 months since I last posted.... Not going to say sorry though, life just got in the way. I think I'm finally getting my priorities straightened out and although things haven't gotten any less chaotic around here, I think we have finally settled in to a slightly slower, less over scheduled life? Maybe because it's summer, maybe because the kids sleep a LOT longer into the morning/afternoon, or maybe because I have realized that doing nothing does not move you forward.
Enough of the philosophical stuff...onward! It is almost time for the new Close to my Heart Idea Book and Catalog to premiere. I plan on having another Open House in early August, hoping to get it done the 2nd week? Lot's of new product including a new Cricut cartridge package that is truly "ground breaking," with just the touch of one or two keys, you can create 10 mini books, 32 two page scrapbook layouts and so much more. Lot's of title toppers to cut out and a new font or two for good measure. Can't wait to show it to you all.
Also new this fall will be workshops and project days where you can come anytime throughout the day and complete a project, start to finish, you will walk out of the class with a finished project, not just buy and store your stuff : ) I will have a scrapbooking/crafting Garage Sale in October and Close to my Heart will also have a special Holiday mini catalog so I will for sure be having a Christmas Card Workshop as well as other projects to give and decorate with this holiday season. Can't wait to show it all to you soon...
