What a fun holiday! We had 4 of our 6 children home for the holidays. Grandchildren bring back the magic of Christmas. We had such a fun time. The big boys even helped Grandpa dig out his old toy train. That was set up in the middle of the room and was a hit with ALL the kids. Even the two year olds learned how to make it go. Lots of fun, food, paper wrappings, giggles, smiles, shouts of joy and messes all made the holiday WONDERFUL. We all made gingerbread houses. Some ate more house components than they did any building with them, but the night was a hit. Here are a few pictures of our Picture Perfect holiday. Hope you enjoyed every memory of yours as well. Lets get together and start making some fun layouts to put these memories on. Two of the "cheaper by the dozen" layouts will be Christmas layouts to help you get going. There are still spots open if you want to join us....Jan 23rd. Email me or call for details. 988-6030

I have used these 'scrap catchers' on my tables in my workshop room for years. They are the best! I take them to crops, or wherever I need a catcher for my scraps. Very portable and I have made them to match my workshop room and different ones for my studio and sewing room! I thought I would share these with you this year. Each bag is only $15 (+$4.00 shipping) and can be made to match a color scheme of your choice or just a random fun selection. They come packaged and ready to wrap up for a gift as well. Order one, or several! You will always be prepared for any crafting you do!
Are you always loosing your scissors? Do they get lost under the piles you have on your desk. Attach them to a hand-beaded lanyard. Wear them around your neck and you will never wonder where your scissors went again. They will always be right there ready to use! Designs will vary. Each lanyard is $10.00 (plus $2 shipping) Add some fabulous Close to my Heart craft scissors and your total will only be $20
What fun little gifts for those hard to buy for on your shopping list!!

I had so much fun yesterday! I went to a fundraiser scrapbooking crop for my grandchildren's elementary school. We scrapbooked from 9:00 am to 11:00 pm! I havent done that and just played for a long time! It was so much fun. I am a mom with all married children, so their scrapbooks are 'done' and I am caught up on all my Close to my Heart trips, so I took on a HUGE project. (Wish me luck)
I took 34 years of photos OUT of their little plastic photo pages (since they were distroying the photos as they were before the acid free days) I organized them by the year, and jumped in with both feet and began scrapbooking a 'Family Album' from when we were married in 1975 to Hopefully someday I will be current! It was so much fun to go back through that many years of memories! I have included a few pictures of some of my layouts. The children on these few layouts were my babies, but are now in their 30's and married with their own children. The years have passed but it was so fun to remember the very details of these moments! I am up to 1984! WOOHOOOO I am having a blast! I may never do housework again. Sorry honey....
"Life isnt measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breaths away."
MEMORIES....what are you doing with yours???
