Today I was showing my mom how to view blogs, to help her find some new ideas for cards. I told her it was just like going to my blog and then from there, you can search out other blogs. How embarrassing when I went to my own blog only to realize that I have not posted on here since May of this year!! I think my 2017 New Year's resolution was to be more consistent on here. So, I'm going to go for that goal again this year!! The new Seasonal Expressions has arrived at my house and it has inspired me to share with others all of the great products that are in this book!!! I'm beginning with only a sneak peak of the cover! This cover features one of the new paper packets called Chelsea Gardens. The colors are beautiful!! I love the whole gardening theme that goes with this paper! The featured colors include charcoal, fern, glacier, heather, juniper, mink, sweet leaf and white daisy. It is gorgeous! As I complete cards, workshops and other items using this paper, I will post pictures on here. Beginning January 1st, you can go to my Close to my Heart OBA site at https://lauriesmith.closetomyheart.com where you can view the entire new book! Merry Christmas!

Organization is something I get questioned about all of the time.  I'm not the most organized person, but Close to my Heart has provided me with so many items that help me get my stamps, papers, markers and supplies organized.  Now they have come out with the Workspace Wonder sets that help me organize my workspace like never before!  I can get everything that I need for my current project in one spot!  I don't have to go through several containers to find what I am looking for!  You can purchase pieces separately, or better yet, host a party and with a qualifying party order, you can get this entire set for 50% off!!  This is a total packaged value of $117, but you can get it for just $58.50!  And if you reach that goal, you will also receive at least $40 of free products!!  That's $157 worth of products for only $58.50.  You can host a party in your home or have an on-line party and invite your creative friends from anywhere in the United States!  Contact me here for more details!

March has definitely come in like a lion!  Not only has the weather been crazy, but I had a pipe burst in my scrapbooking building and I have spent the last 2 days sorting through a lot of papers, pictures and boxes.  I've had to throw away a full garbage can of papers and containers.  I think this was a sign to take a closer look at all of the supplies I've been hoarding and all of the pictures that I need to get into books!  I have found so many great things in here!  However, I also realized that there are still many things that I need to go with the pictures that I have to scrapbook!  I need more embellishments and papers and stamps and ribbon and so much more!  It's a good thing that Close to my Heart has everything that I am in need of!  Be sure to check out the Seasonal Expressions that will retire at the end of April.  So many great colors!  Don't wait to order the items that you have been wanting.  Things will start going on the unavailable list soon!  I love the March stamp of the month too!  So versatile!  Below is just a sample of how this stamp can be used on a card or to add onto a scrapbook page!
