Meet My Boys

It's time to welcome Disney and Henry to the blog!  My fellas are both Pekingese (Peke for short) and they have been with me about 8 years.  Disney is a few months older than Henry and much more independent.  He is certain that he is my bodyguard and he takes his job very seriously!   Henry is the baby and he is always looking for a snuggle.  To say that they are spoiled is a huge understatement.  I am pretty sure they believe they own my house and that I am around to serve them.  I don't really mind because they are so good to me.  I know I should be the pack leader but I am super happy being the Peke Mama!

World Card Making Day

Did you know October 1st is World Card Making Day?  I am spending the day at my local scrapbook store with some of my favorite crafty friends.  I've got tons of new images to work with and loads of new coloring techniques to try out thanks to Copic Instructor Jennifer Dove.  Check out this awesome tutorial on her blog which includes a link to download a free image.  Jennifer taught a three day Copic Retreat here in September and shared amazing tips and techniques.

Of course I also have plans for dozens of new creations using my Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and coordinating stamp sets.  I'll be working on a spooky scrapbook page and all sorts of cards.  What are you working on?

I'm So Excited!

I was working on creating the inventory for my first craft festival and decided to do a little supply shopping. The Creating Keepsakes Convention was in town and I went to their Vendor Faire in search of scrappy goodies. I was tempted by ribbons, flowers and butterflies, but by far the most exciting options were found in the booth run by the Close To My Heart consultants.

I found the perfect stamp set for my Halloween projects first. Just wait until you see the fun and spooky projects headed your way! Then I fell in love with a pumpkin design just perfect for Fall cards. As I browsed through the My Acrylix stamp sets and Workshop on the Go kits, I found so much to love, but I was on a budget.

When I saw the Close To My Heart Cricut cartridge with matching stamps I was blown away! This cart cuts 700 images and many of them are perfect fits for coordinating stamps. Even more amazing were the designs to cut 3D flowers.

I left the Convention that afternoon but I just could not stop thinking about the Cricut cartridge and the coordinating stamps. What a perfect fit! Within a few hours I realized Close To My Heart was a perfect fit for me and for Bewitched Crafts. I became a Consultant that same afternoon.

That's me with my upline Sandy Trammell and her upline Tina Sutton. These fabulous ladies are helping me get started. You can help too! Let's see if Close To My Heart products are the perfect fit for you. Take a look at my Consultant web site today.
