A Day Late...

Hope you had a Happy Valentine's Day and I am sorry that I am a day late.  Just wanted to share with you all the fun projects I made for my special valentines in my life.  This first one on my left was for my darling hubby.  The sentiment says, "Whoo loves you" and the inside I typed on my computer, "Owl love you forever"  I filled a tube from CTMH's Ribbon Rounds with bite size Snickers, his favorite, and decorated it to coordinate with his card.

The second image down was for my daughter and the last images were for my littlest valentines who are only 4 and 2 and didn't even know the day was supposed to be special.  I am so blessed to have such a great family, immediate and otherwise, and so blessed to have a job that allows me to be at home with them AND make money from my most favorite hobby!

If you want to hear more about this great opportunity and to join my "Craftabulous" team, contact me today for an earful!

Also don't forget about Hearts for Haiti going on just this month where you can earn a free sumptuous textured Combo Cardstock pack for every pack you purchase.  Plus, for each BOGO offer sold, CTMH is donating $2 to the relief efforts in Haiti through Operation Smile.  Read more about this really moving project here on Jeanette Lynton's blog (CTMH's CEO).  Shop my website for your Textured Cardstock here 24/7.

Oh, the weather outside is frightful...


I know, I know, it's February and I'm singing a Christmas tune but that's what is in my head as I look outside at the continually falling snow.  It really isn't frightful at all, but rather quite beautiful.  I sure am glad it is the weekend though so we can all enjoy it tomorrow as a family! 

I took some great pictures tonight of the kids and us after shoveling (for the third time).  We are possibly getting upwards of 8 more inches before it stops; and the way it is still coming down, I believe it!
I hope everyone is staying warm and cozy and has a safe and memorable weekend.  I cannot wait to scrap these photos!!

Hearts For Haiti

Close To My Heart is so much more than just a scrapbook supply company and this is another example that proves it.  They care so much for their staff, their product, their customers and in giving back:  I love this company!  Read on:

From Corporate:
Our hearts go out to the victims of the earthquake in Haiti, and like so many of you, we’re eager to help.   I'm  excited to announce Close To My Heart’s February Constant Campaign, Hearts for Haiti—where    you can get a great deal while doing great good for those affected by the devastation in Haiti.

From February 1-28, 2010, our 12” x 12” textured cardstock combo packs are buy one, get one FREE—and with every offer purchased, Close To My Heart will donate $2 to Operation Smile’s Haiti relief efforts.

Operation Smile is always a fantastic charitable partner—offering free facial reconstruction surgeries to needy children throughout the world. They’ve currently marshaled their medical teams and resources to provide emergency relief in Haiti, and the donations given as part of Hearts for Haiti will be used exclusively for Operation Smile’s efforts in Haiti. For more information on their on-the-ground response, you can visit

I know when I first heard about this horrible earthquake I wanted to help donate anything I could to help.  Then CTMH came along with this very simple idea:  BOGO and they will donate $2 for us!  So in other words, for just $14.95 you are going to receive TWO of our beautiful Textured Cardstock Combo Packs in any two color combos of your choice AND you will have helped children in Haiti with CTMH's $2 donation!  (To get ALL the available colors it would only cost $44.85 (a $90 value) and you will have donated three times plus have an extra cardstock pack to boot!)

To make your purchase of Buy One, Get One Free of our Textured Cardstock Combo Packs and your donation of $2 to the relief efforts in Haiti, simply go to my website, or contact me today.  So stock up on all the best colors and continue to help those in need right now.  See all the available color combo packs below.  Thank you so much for participating!
