Christmas Memories

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

Let the Shopping Begin!!

Did you make it through Black Friday? I choose to stay home this year. Was so glad there was nothing in the ads i just absolutely needed! Instead, I made some fun gifts on my own. Thought I would share them with you. Fun little gifts with the handmade touch for all your crafting friends.

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!!

10 Things I am Thankful for!!

It has been a fun week! Card making workshop, two Christmas Album workshops, a little Christmas shopping, a little babysitting, seeing the grandkids I dont get to see on a daily basis, watching other grandkids 'shoot a commercial' dr appointments, and more but we topped off the week with an early Thanksgiving Dinner. This year, most of the kids were going to their in-laws house for Thanksgiving so we had ours last night. What a fun time. Lots of giggles, messy faces, food and fun. After they had all gone home, dishes were done, and I was waiting to fall asleep, I took that quiet time to reflect on my top 10 list of things I am thankful for. It has been fun this week to read others post on facebook daily of things they are thankful for. It is so easy to get so busy we forget what is most important. Here is my top 10....

1. FAMILY! First and farmost, I am so thankful for such a great family. My dear hubby (and best friend) and I have 6 fabulous kids and 9 grandkids, (with 2 more on the way) So thankful for parents who taught me the value of the family! Thanks mom and dad. Thanks Scott for making my life the best!! We have been married for 34 fabulous years! So many memories.... so many things to be thankful for. Thanks Scott.

2. My Heavenly Father! So blessed to know I am a child of God and He is there for me and loves me. So thankful for my testimony of the gospel, and for my brother Jesus Christ.

3. HEALTH!! I am appreciating good health more and more each day! Thankful for each day.

4. FRIENDS! What would my life be like without friends. So thankful for those who add fun and enjoyment to my life. Thanks my fun friends!!

5. MEMORIES! I have been working on a scrapbook album of many years ago, when we first got married and began our little family. It has been so fun going back through those memories and 'watching them grow up' through pictures.

6. SCRAPBOOKS!! I love putting together Scrapbooks to hold those memories. Scrapbooking has brought me so many more things to be thankful for.... Some of those are.....

7. CLOSE TO MY HEART! What a great place to work! I became a Close to my Heart consultant in July of 1991. Thinking it would just be an outlet to get the fun products I wanted to use in my papercrafting projects..... I signed up. Has it ever proved to be more than that. I am so thankful I found this fabulous company so many years ago. It has brought me so many more things to be thankful for....

8. CUSTOMERS who have become my friends. Not many people can say they really LOVE their job! I CAN!! I love the fabulous women I have met. They are far more than just customers. I consider them friends. Thank you CTMH for bringing me such fantastic women and for such a great opportunity!

9. My friends AT Close to my Heart Corporate office!! and all other consultants and team members. Besides the friends I have made as customers, I have a fabulous team of fantastic women! They too have become my friends. Thanks to each of you. Thanks also for each of you at Corporate! I am thankful for our friendship and for all the fun times! Looking forward to seeing you in New Zealand! So grateful for all the trips I have earned with Close to my Heart. What a fun way to take my sweetheart on some terrific vacations!!

10. THE SEASON! I am thankful for this time of year, when things get so busy that somehow we figure out how to slow down and really think of all the things that are important to us. So thankful for my life!!

Scrapbook Crop... So much Fun!

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???

Cheaper by the Dozen!!

What could be better than getting your Scrapbook layouts done? Getting them 'Cheaper by the Dozen'! We did just that last Saturday. A group of talented women got together for a fun workshop called 'cheaper by the dozen' and created a dozen 2-page layouts for their scrapbooks. All they needed to do once they got them home, was add their photos!

Take a look at some of the layouts below!!

It was an all day workshop with fun, visiting, laughing and of course lunch! We are planning another one for September 19th. If YOU would like to get some layouts done before then, we can plan a 'cheaper by the dozen' day just for you and your friends. We would need a minimum of 6 scrappers (maximum of 12) We will choose a day just for your group!! Let me know if you would like some fun pages, and a fun day together with your friends.
Cost for the day, 24 pages, and lunch is only $60 Let me know when you would like to schedule your workshop!

We made projects, worked on our scrapbooks, made baby invitations, lots of make and takes, got secret presents, won doorprizes, enjoyed LOTS of yummy food, slept a 'little' and laughed a ton. What a fun fun weekend. Thanks to all our participants who were able to come, and who shared projects and fun!

We met Friday at 9:00 am and quickly got things set up. We hauled in all our fun 'toys' and began to 'play' Our theme was "Celebrate YOU!!" We celebrated everyone for who they are. We had a secret birthday gift swap, door prizes were won by all, and we had lots of make and takes to work on. Oh and the FOOD...... we had so much good yummy food.
