I decided to bring you a little Christmas in July, since that’s exactly how I feel after coming home from the Close to My Heart Convention in Salt Lake City. Now if the Fed Ex guy would just hurry with my convention bundles it would be like Christmas!

The Storybook Alphabet, July’s Stamp of the Month, is perfect for just about anything you want to do with it from titles on scrapbook layouts to a name tag or in this case spreading a little JOY!  Make sure you get your’s ordered before month’s end, it’s just $5 US with a qualifying purchase.  July is also Stampganza so when you purchase two stamp sets the third is free – see Christmas in July!

The Fundamental papers are one of my favorites from the Annual Inspirations and I’m excited that they’ll be sticking around with a bit of a make-over in the new AI debuting August 1st.

Thanks for stopping by…leave me a comment and tell me what your favorite Alphabet set is from the current catalog.  Now it’s time to hop over to Joyce’s Blog I know you’re gonna love what you see there.

Painted Mason Jar – Color Dare #251

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the colors: Gold, Black, Juniper, Lemon & Sorbet.

I wanted to play around with the Flower Market Cricut cartridge and found this sweet jar – since I’ve been seeing lots of painted Mason Jars I thought I’d cut it from the black & white dot B&T.  Those flowers were all layered but went together very quickly.

OK, now it’s YOUR turn!  The full details on how to join the fun is in the sidebar of our homepage.  Each color dare is open until 9:00 CDT on Thursday!

Thank You!

As I sit here in my hotel in Salt Lake City really excited for convention to start – the first thing I think about is that I owe a big thank you to my loyal customers.

My first order of business was to check in at the Salt Palace and I was excited to have a couple of extra ribbons to display on my name tag.  The Sellers Club is a new title in 2017 and I was lucky enough to earn both ribbons.  To reach the sellers club I have to sell a certain dollar amount in a quarter (double what I normally have to sell) and then I am given a two month preview for the next constant campaign.  I never in all my years guessed that I could do it twice – and it was not without your help.  So thank you for helping me earn these ribbons.

I plan on having lots of fun here (so far so good) – we had our first Uber ride to dinner and back 🙂 and sharing what bits and pieces I can.  Our first meeting is tonight so I’ll probably just do a quick update in the morning.

See you soon!
