Gettin' Crafty

Happy New Year's Eve! I've had this week off (jealous, I know) and I've managed to make our Thank You cards, a birthday card, a Rusty Pickle "Love" sign, a CTMH "Wings" banner and...I think that's it. I tried taking pics of the Love sign with my phone...which I just tried to upload to blogger for the past 30 minutes and it keeps freezing. I have one pic on Facebook, link is to the right. Well, "they" make it so easy to share pics via FB, photobucket, shutterfly, email, itouch, ipad that I'm sure I'll get something to work.

It snowed yesterday and I love snow when I'm inside, warm and cozy. If I have to drive then I'm stressed all day. But I really enjoyed this week. I had errands to run and I've slowly been taking the Christmas decorations down. I needed a day where I didn't have to do anything for anyone else. Where I could make something for me. That sounds selfish typing it, but we all need to take time for ourselves. We can't always do that without letting someone else down or dropping the ball on something. I guess when the time is right in front of you, take it. No matter how rare that is.

Happy New Year's!

Happy December!

My favorite time of year is here! I love Christmas and the holidays! I've been getting my Christmas supplies out and scrapping Christmas goodies!

For anyone else who loves to scrap, or wants to learn how, I'm doing a special in December called "Make 'em a Gift". I know when I hand make a gift for someone, they really know that I put a lot of time, effort and creativity in it. I feel like my cards are appreciated more and my calendars are not forgotten about. So, if you order $75 in Close to My Heart product in December, you'll get a free white chipboard item. I'll choose for you (or let me know what you'd just die to have and I'll try my best!) as supplies are limited. But examples are: a monthly calendar, recipe/photo box, board book, bound journal, or a 3 ring binder/mini album. Just visit my store at: and place an order by December 30th and I'll send you one of the above items! If you'd prefer to order with me via the phone or in person that would be great too. My contact info is the right of the blog entries.

I hope all of you can get into the Christmas spirit. If you celebrate something else, I hope you get into that spirit and enjoy it too. Try to make something for someone you know this year! It's so fulfilling to give a gift like that.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
