I'm BACK!!

So sorry for being gone so long. My spring was a whirlwind of chaos and fun. I had the awesome opportunity being of planning and implementing a Talent Show for my kid's K-8 Charter School! It was so much fun but at the same time extremely exhausting. I was also able to assist in the planning and execution of a large assembly for the entire school to say farewell to our principal of the last 11 years. In between those two events I also closed out another year of girl scouts with my amazing troop. We bridged them to Cadettes this year. I can not believe they are already at that level, seems like only yesterday they were just Daisies. I also attended many board meetings for the school, finished up the school year with my kids and then took a 10 day trip to see my parents and two sisters! Lots of excitement and fun! The only downfall to all of this fun was it all left very little time for my business. Well I have reorganized, revitalized and refocused. I am ready to get going again on my business. I love to craft! I also love to share my talents with others. I love teaching workshops and visiting with friends while doing so. I will be releasing my schedule this next week. You will see scheduled Crops, workshops, a new round of Card Club and an all NEW Scrapbook Club! I am also available to do gatherings or workshops in your home! If you are not following my blog, please do so! I would love to know there are people out there waiting for the next post, it helps to hold me responsible. Also feel free to share my blog with others!

We have a few wonderful deals in July! Stay tuned to see what those are! Also if you haven't heard already, Close to my Heart is releasing their new Autumn/Winter Idea book on August 1st. Stay tuned for some sneak peaks of the new product lines and stamps!
