Getting ready already!

The kids will be returning to school in a few days (insert the Mommy happy dance here!) and you know what that means.  Yep, time to start thinking about the impending holiday season.  Now, everyone of us will say “This is the crazy time of year for the family.” For our house it is a very true statement, what with back to school, countless birthdays (we celebrate 3 in a month and a half, and that’s just out of the 6 of us in this house!) from now until December, not to mention Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years.  It can get overwhelming to say the least.

Here is a picture holder I put together recently.  I know, I skipped a few holidays, but I love red and green so much more than orange!

It’s going to be hard to gift this one as I have really started to fall in love with it!

The great thing about this picture holder is the fact that you can decorate it for any of the holidays.  I’m currently working on a way to have interchangeable embellishments so you can keep the base, but change out a few little do-dads and decorate in minutes for any holiday!

Why I do what I do.

People often ask me once they find out that I love to craft and create, "What is the one project you are most proud of?" My answer is always the same, "My five kids!" They are the reason I have been scrapbooking for so many years. I want to be able to capture their childhood through pictures, and evoke emotion through the art of scrapbooking. I found a wonderful company, Close To My Heart (CTMH), that allows me to do just that. Their breathtaking line of paper packs with coordinating embellishments and stamp sets take the guess work out of scrapping, and they are a huge time saver. And let's be honest, when it's fun it's easier to get a project done. Once I discovered CTMH, I decided to become a consultant so that I am better equipped to share the joy I feel when preserving memories that will be passed on for generations to come.

Another benefit to using Close To My Heart products is the versatility they offer. Not only do you get to create and protect your precious memories by scrapbooking, but you can also use the paper packs and embellishments to create personalized and unique cards as well as sprucing up your home decor. I love having the ability to transform a simple photograph into a piece of art I am proud to display in my home or give as a gift to a special person.

It is not the amount of 'creative talent' but rather the level of interest and passion you possess that will determine what we are capable of accomplishing together. Let me show you how simple, quick and most importantly fun scrapbooking and paper crafting can be.
