I have a great team of ladies from all over the Pacific Northwest and would love to add some from every state! We have a great time via e-mail and local get togethers encouraging each other, supporting each other and sharing ideas to help everyone reach their goals.

Avonlea Workshop on the Go

I am so glad some of my customers talked me into doing a Workshop on the Go Club this year. I have enjoyed not only these ladies but have thoroughly enjoyed the Workshops on the Go from Close to My Heart.

I meet with these wonderful ladies the 3rd Tuesday of every month from 6-9. We complete 4 two-page layouts and I provide the extra cardstock needed. We are finally getting into the groove and able to complete ALL four layouts in 3 hours from cutting, stamping, embellishing and adhesiving (if that is a word!). The cost for this great evening is only $35 (this includes shippping and tax).

Each Workshop on the Go includes all paper, embellishments and stamp set needed to complete the layouts.

There are 3 of us currently and we would love to have 2 more ladies join us for January through June of 2013. Once during the six months you would receive $25 in FREE product and for the 6th month I will draw a name from club members.

In January we will be completing pages using the Avonlea pape…

2013 New Year's Resolution

Every year I spend some time thinking about my goals for the coming year. This year I decided to make both personal and business goals. With Simon starting a new school that requires more driving I am forcing myself to be more organized and make better use of my time so I can actually meet my goals this year!

My business goals for 2013 is simple. Grow my business! I would love more customers, more consultants on my team and inspire more people. I would also love to earn the Close to My Heart incentive trip for Seth and I to relax in Costa Rica next winter. In order to meet this goal I am going to:
Complete more projects  that encourage you to create with your craft supplies. Create kits that anyone can put together to create beautiful handmade, personalized scrapbook layouts, cards or home decor. Hold workshops where you walk away having learned something. Hold home gatherings to spread my love of scrapbooking with Close to My Heart products. If you would like to help me meet my goals …
