Loving Life


winter 2010 012

Here is my beautiful 11 year old daughter walking Flash, the pony she has come to adore.  It is always such a joy to see her loving life and enjoying every minute doing what she loves most. I am so proud of her and can only hope that I can learn from her.  This has been somewhat of a rough week for us here at home dealing with a nasty flu bug.  Looking at pictures of my girls and reflecting on their happy memories always makes me feel good.  Depending on the weather tomorrow, I may just spend some extra time preserving those memories……

More Card Fun

Pictured here is a quick card I made by embossing the top portion, adding a 2 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of B&T from the CTMH "Wings" level 2 paper pack on the bottom, and attaching some cute buttons (which Close To My Heart is now offering such a great variety of).....Completed in just 5 minutes and so cute!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I just wanted to take a second to wish you all a very happy Valentine's Day! Here is a little treat card that my 9 year old and I created for her teacher..... a special thanks to Melissa for her great tutorial on making the paper carnation flowers using Close To My Heart's 2" scallop punch. They are so easy to make and what a beautiful end product.
Yesterday, February 12th, my girls' school had it's first annual crop fundraiser to raise money for the school's playground. What a great turn-out we had! The croppers had fun and got lots of work done, I had a blast helping our croppers do some projects, good times laughing with all the vendors...and a HUGE thanks to Chrissy, my fellow CTMH consultant, for helping me instruct one of our make-n-takes that everyone loved!!! I am looking forward to helping organize the next crop at KWC Elementary.......................

Happy February!

Happy February, all, and with a new month comes a new CTMH Idea Book. Here is is, the new Close To My Heart Spring/Summer 2011 Idea book..
There are so many beautiful paper packs available. Sophia, on pages 6-7, is one of my very favorites. Fanfare is a super fun paper and has an awesome accommodating stamp set called Pennant Alphabet, found on page 37, that can be used for so many different craft projects. Not to mention, that CTMH has added a bunch of new embellishments! It doesn't get any better than that. So take a look at the new Idea Book online and if you would like one to hold and flip through, just let me know and I'll get you your very own copy immediately!!!!
Happy crafting!!!!!
