Close to My Heart Specials


I wanted to share the November Stamp of the Month . . . it is a beautiful Christmas stamp set that can be used easily with our exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge (not sure why the picture is so fuzzy-sorry about that). Also pictured is the Rock the Block special which doesn't start until December 19th, but is so cool you'll want to be one of the first to order it! There is a You Tube video for Rock the Block . . . you can watc it here: Don't forget that you can view the catalog on line at any time, just visit my web site at Thanks for looking!

My FAVORITE blog to follow is

Ree Drummond - The Pioneer Woman - she takes me to Oklahoma - a place I've never been, but by her stories and photography - a place that might be fun to visit! You can find her here . . .

Totally Forgot How to Blog!

OMG is has been a year since I've blogged. Well, New Year's resolutions don't always have to start in January do they? Let me see if I can do better from this point forward. It's been a busy summer - and a sad one at that - but with a little less to do, I'll devote that time to blogging.  Work continues to fuel my soul - nothing like handing a new mom her twins to hold for the first time together or waving goodbye to a family as they finally take home their new baby! The kids are all good - Brice working on high speed railways, Amy looking for a job in Portland but loves discovering her baking/cooking skills, and Kristin settling in with classes in San Franciscoon her way to applying to the registered dietician program and making new friends on the California Coalition for Sustainable Living committee she has joined. Chuck is busy with work - and just got back from a week in Chicago - it was his mom's 75th birthday.
Today we are watching his brother's kids, Hailey (8 yrs) and Nathaniel (5 yrs). Tonight we are seeing Iris, the Hollywood take from Cirque du Soilel. Sometime today I want to get in a little more crafting - love those new Close to My Heart papers! Have a great day!
