Learning the ropes, catching on and getting organized

It's been a crazy couple of weeks but I think I'm finally catching on to all things CTMH.  Just a short while after setting up my first web page with CTMH we transitioned to a new system and I think I finally have the new one tweaked to my least for now. Check it out at

Had a wonderful trip to Minneapolis a couple of weekends ago with a wonderful (and patient) friend. We met up with friends of mine from high school, shopped, made a few side trips to Stillwater, MN and Chippewa Falls, WI (we toured the Lenie's Lodge and factory, of course) and took time to relax and have fun. I also scrapbooked a bit-in general I started scrappin' right around the time Jeff wanted nothing more than to call it a night and get some sleep. Thank God for Smash books otherwise I'm pretty sure Jeff wouldn't have gotten any sleep on the trip! Thus the reason I called him patient.

The trip to Minny was followed by a crazy 8 days of work and now I'm looking forward to a quiet weekend to catch up on stuff around the house and play with all the goodies that arrived in my new consultant kit shortly before we left for Minny.  Look for pictures of new projects soon.

Want to have fun and create your own beautiful projects? That's easy to do.  Let me show you (and your friends) how and get you the products to start your projects out right.  Feel free to order on my 24 hr website-listed above or e-mail me with questions or if you'd like to book a home gathering or EZ Invite online gathering.

New Adventures!!!

It seems like forever since I've posted in this blog...time and life just ran away from me.  Today starts a new adventure (and in turn an attempt to keep my blog more up to date). I embarked on a new journey and have become an Independent Close to My Heart Consultant-thanks to my wonderful friend (and now up line) Chrys Kamps.  Chrys has been encouraging me to do this for a long time...I think she started asking about 1 day after her consultant kit arrived in the mail-LOL! I held out for quite a while but have finally caved and took the leap-I'm hoping for a fun filled journey with tons of new experiences. As I anxiously await the arrival of my consultant kit I've set up my Facebook page, my CTMH ordering website and am updating here.  I'd love to hear from anyone interested in hearing more about CTMH or is interested in learning more about crafting with paper.  I intend to continue teaching classes at Assemblage Studio as I have in the past and would like to use this new adventure as another "excuse" to make as much art as possible.

Give me a few weeks to get my feet on the ground and then I'd love to entertain people booking home parties and bringing CTMH into your homes.  If you're interested in booking a  home party, a book party or an EZ-invite (internet) party let me know  and you too can be a part of the fun and creativity of CTMH!
