Had a blast in TX!

Mom, Eva and I had a blast in Texas at the CTMH convention.  I couldn't believe we were actually able to go.  We learned a lot and Eva was so good...especially since we were gone so long!  If you are like me, I know you can't wait to get your hands on the new idea book so you can start to make your wish list.  Leave a comment or send me an email if you would like me to save a book for you!  As of August 1, you can also go to my website and browse through all of the new things online!  Click here if you want to start shopping from home.

Some other fun things we learned are all about Studio J.  For those of you who aren't familiar with Studio J, it is a free online way to design scrapbook pages.  There are now express collections to help you scrapbook even faster and I am very anxious to make a few pages with Eva's pictures so that I can keep up:)  The cost of ordering is now only $6.95 per two-page layout, but the best thing is that you can go online to create and play and it is all free!  Click here to go and see all of the new improvements for yourself!

There is also a new Cricut cartridge!!!  I am still learning all of the fun things from the Cricut Art Philosophy, but I can't wait to get my hands on the Cricut Artiste Cartridge.  It looked absolutely amazing and I have seen some really fun things made using it! It includes 700 images that incorporate many themes to help coordinate projects.  The cost of the cartridge is $99 and it comes with 3 coordinating stamp sets and 3 sets of coordinating Dimensional Elements.  The whole set can also be yours for 50% off if you have a qualifying party so make sure to book yours today!

I learned so many more fun things that I can't wait to share, so be sure to check back again to learn more.  Stay cool and happy crafting!!!

Mojo Monday

I saw the Mojo Monday 247 sketch and I just knew I had to give it a try!  I already had a circle cut and stamped with one of my favorite butterflies from the Delight set that we used during the July Cards and Cocktails.  They always have such fun sketches at the Mojo blog ...even if I don't usually get the project posted on time!

Tummy Troubles

Being a new mom, I didn't really know what to expect with babies and spitting up.  Eva has seemed to suffer from "tummy troubles" from the beginning, and the past two weeks have only gotten worse.  She is now on medicine for acid reflux and the doctor thinks she might have lactose intolerance.  At first I was worried I couldn't nurse her anymore, but we are going to try giving her lactaid to help with the digestion.  Hopefully this will work and she can be the happy baby that I know she wants to be!!!  Has anyone else had these issues?  If so leave me a comment about anything you learned...I can't wait for her to outgrow some of these issues, but I don't want her to grow up either:)

Change isn't always a bad thing!!!

Trends come and go, and Close To My Heart is keeping up with those trends.  We are saying good-bye to 24 colors:
So if there are colors here that you just can't live without, now is the time to stock up on the cardstock, ink pads and reinkers.  Beginning August 1, when the NEW Fall/Winter catalog is introduced, these colors will be gone!  Check back soon to learn more about convention and fun new products!
