Get ready! Big things ahead!

Hi there!

I hope all of you are doing well.  I am finally finished with my vacation.  Let me just tell you it was so nice to go home for a bit and see old friends and family.  I had high hopes of getting some videos edited and uploaded while I was home, but with running around trying to see as many people as possible, visiting with family, relaxing, and sleeping, I never got around to it!  Here's hoping tomorrow night (tonite? It is 2:30 a.m. already so technically it's today), I can get a video uploaded.  Then, I will work on editing the second video and get that up over the weekend.

Tomorrow (today, technically), after work, I am having a small home gathering to show some coworkers some Close To My Heart products.  Stampaganza is still going on which means there is still time to take advantage of the great sale!  If you are interested in getting in on this HUGE deal check out and click on June's Stampaganza! under Join one of Ian's Gatherings (in the lower right hand corner).  As a reminder, for every 2 stamp sets you purchase you get one stamp set of equal or lesser value free!  I ordered about 24 stamps (8 of which were FREE) so once I get those I'll do a shopping haul to show you the goodies I purchased.  :)  I saved almost $97 through this sale, PLUS, I still have about 15 stamps to purchase.  So, if you couldn't tell, the more you purchase, the higher your discount will be.  If you have the Art Philosophy cartridge, many of the stamps match up with this cart as well!  How perfect!

Here's a sneak peak of two of the stamps I purchased:

All Decked Out - D1308 - $17.95

Party Pennants - C1429 - $13.95

Last, I'm a little delayed with this, but recently I was asked to participate in another blog hop!  This will be my 2nd blog hop and I am so EXCITED!!  This blog hop is called Pink E's 4th of July Blog Hop!  Pink E is a wonderful crafter that is so talented.  I would be lying if I said I didn't get a lot of my inspiration from her and her projects.  Check her out here!   She's wonderful!  So, check back here on July 3rd, or rather yet, start at Pink E's blog and work your way through!  I'm excited to showcase what I've to think about what to make!  haha.

Craft on,


  1. I love that snowman set!! OMGoodness! It's just too cute!! I can't wait to see what you make with it! Can you believe - Christmas in July already! :O)


    1. Thanks, PinkE! :) You are more than welcome to purchase it if you'd like...I won't tell SU. ;) Haha. Yes, I am excited to use it and make some Christmas cards with it. I can't believe it's Christmas in July. Where did the year go?!

  2. Love the party pennant set. Used it for a baby shower and was totally cute. So many things you can do with it!

    1. Thanks, Emily! I'm not sure what I'll use it for but I'm excited to get the chance to, hopefully soon too! :) Thanks for stopping by! :D
