All Set!

After several attempts to get everything organized I finally finished my crafting closet! I love how it turned out and NOW can start some serious crafting projects. I started this project last year before Cory was coming home from Africa, it was a little me gift and something that really needed to be done. I had so much paper and accessories that I couldn't find anything, plus I had multiples of just about every paper pack that Close To My Heart makes because I couldn't find what I needed when I needed it so I would order more. Yikes, you should see how much I'm going to be selling!!!

I've set my list and am all set to start crafting... First item on the list, learn to use my Cricut machine (or should I say machines). I first bought the portable one, holds 6x12 papers and when CTMH came out with their own cartridges I HAD to get the 12x12 Expression one. Cory almost flipped when he saw yet another box from UPS, good think he loves me! I'm working on some fun projects and hope to get pictures posted very soon. Happy Crafting!

CTMH Convention 2011

What a great time this last trip to Disneyland was and it didn't include a trip into the park! Close To My Heart's convention was at "The Happiest Place On Earth" and it truly was magical. For a whole 3 days I got to take off so many of my hats and just wear my crafty one. I loved meeting new people, seeing the latest and greatest and just being inspired by so many things. Pictures will follow of the items we created and some things I have come up with. For now I leave you with the new mission statement of CTMH and something I will strive to live by in my business.

We show you how to celebrate relationships through discovering your creativity, to preserve and share the moments that matter most.

Happy summer crafting and if you want a catalog... let me know! :)
