Where has summer gone? With just a few days remaining in August and school starting again this week or next week depending on where you live. I wanted to catch everyone up on some of the changes that are happing with me and my Close To My Heart business....

Over the summer I changed day jobs; I left corporate America in Stevens Point, WI to work at a small dental office in Waupaca WI... And after 2 months.. I love it! The best part of this new career is that I have Friday's off ---- which means more time to CRAFT!

Due to my new work schedule I cannot travel to Wausau on a weeknight. My Wausau club will now meet every time a new supplement is released on a Saturday morning.  More information to come.

Watch for extra workshops and crops days this fall, winter and spring.

Close To My Heart - released it's new catalog on August 1 - which includes:

  • New Hostess Reward items (purchase a Cuddlebug, CTMH projects or even a Cricut Bundle or Workspace Wonders bundle!)
  • Project for all types of crafters, papercrafters, scrapbookers and cardmakers!
  • A new How-To Pattern book - Make it From the Heart 3
  • Cut Above Page kits for Baby (boy or girl)
  • Updated Fundamental papers and Complements
  • Tons of new My Acrylix stamps!

  • FOUR new Cricut Collections (3 digital only)

    • You are Here -- has over 700 images + 3 exclusive stamps
  • New Thin Cut - metal dies; including Banners, tags AND an alphabet!

Hey Everyone - sorry its been so long since I posted...
I went on Vacation in late January and when I returned my business laptop died and had to your our desktop which was old and a little slow...

I finally got a new computer and I'm back up and running and posting!

In the that time - I've also given my craft room a much needed facelift. Since it was my son's old bedroom and he hasn't lived at home for about 9 years! I'll post before and after pictures over the weekend. I still have a couple of things to do (hang pictures, make a set of curtains and figure out where some items will work best).

Here is the April Special for Close To My Heart - This would make a GREAT new baby or wedding gift and it's REALLY quick to make! Make sure to watch the video too!
