Creative time...

As usual, I never have enough creative time but I made time last week to create some thank you cards for a sweet girl that I now have the pleasure to work with. She has been training with me for a few months now & has even volunteered her time to make sure she felt comfortable on her own so I wanted to thank her with some thank you cards. All of the ones I made were inspired by Pintrest so I hope you enjoy. Jen, you are a real gem, they don't make many like you anymore!

Wow, are we really at the end of October?

Where has the time gone?  I can't believe  the end if October is just days away...but with the snow in the forecast, I guess it is...I really thought summer was going to come back, didn't you?  I know, what summer!

Well it has been eons since I posted artwork & it is likely only going to get worse as I am starting two new jobs next week...I'm excited for the challenges & the learning but I am not looking forward to having less creative time...however creative time doesn't pay the bills...

So I am thankful to be employed, therefor it is fitting that I share this card with you...I can't take credit for it though, I was inspired by Vicki Wizniuk's card. Sorry I don't know how to inset a link as I blogging on my phone but if you go to wizardshangout.blogspot,com & check out her post on August 11/14, you will see where the inspiration came from!

All products used are Close To My Heart, why use anything but the best!

If you would like to learn how to make this card, be sure to contact me!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Would love to know what you are thankful for too!

Moving into the 21st Century...

So my biggest complaint for not blogging as much is I just don't seem to have time to always sit in front of the computer. I always thought there must be a way to do this on my phone...well today I found out there IS a way to do this on my phone!!  But you all probably knew that :-) 

So today is my first post from my phone :-)  Sadly I do not have any photos on my phone of my paper crafting but I do have photos of my boy Jerry :-) We are heading to a camping trip in the photo I will share & he is bored with the drive so he has taken up residence shall we say on our pillows...

So not only did I find out how to post to my blog from my phone, I also found a couple of really cool photo editing apps so I am playing with them too!

What an eventful day it has been!

Thanks for stopping by & spending some time with me today!

Changes coming for CTMH

Hey everyone!  

CTMH has some changes coming & you are the first to know about it ;-)

First off, as good as it was for as long as it was, it has come to an end...Canadian prices at par with the US ;-(  CTMH is adding a 10% increase to the current prices effective with the release of our next idea book.  That being said, the price for the SOTM will remain the same at $5 with a $50 purchase & the minimum for a gathering will still remain at $150 which is nice as the last time the prices were higher due to our $, those went up as well.  So that being said, the new idea book will be available August 1st so the increases will take effect then.  However, if there is anything that you can't live without, now is the time to purchase.  I have seen in the past that when something is "threatened" of extinction (in this case, the really great prices), people shop early & things sell out so don't delay if there is something you reallly reallllllllllllly want ;-)

The next change will come with the idea book.  We cut back a few years ago to just 2 idea books a year & now we will be cutting back to one idea book, calling it "Annual Insprirations" & making them larger (as in more pages) with over 250 new products & the items listed in this idea book will be available for the year.  The price of the idea books will increase from $3.95 currently to $6.50 retail.  As always though, I will continue to offer free idea books with a minimum purchase  ;-) What will be new in addition to our year long idea book will be 2 releases throughout the year for what they are calling "Seasonal Expressions" & their retail value will be $1.25.  Please know that I do have to purchase the idea books & other material that they offer which is why I ask for a minimum purchase to help cover my costs.  I wish I could afford to just give them away all the time ;-)  I do like to treat my best customers now & then so you know if you get a free idea book without a minimum purhase, you are one of them ;-)

Another new item available is what they are calling "Product Collections" where there are 5 new product collections grouped together at a discount :-)   The collections at this point are not in the idea book but may be with the release of the new one in August...I have attached a flyer for more information...
So that is all the news that I have for you this week.  If you are looking for something to do, Carol & her team are hosting a crop in Ingleside on June 14th to support the Canadian Cancer Society's Relay For Life so mark your calendars & I will forward on more information when it becomes available to me ;-)

Have a great weekend everyone & thanks for stopping by!

Scrapfest 2014!

Happy New Year everyone!  I hope you all enjoyed the busy season.  I don't know where December went but I say that every year!  I think when you are a handicrafter like me, you just get so wrapped up in what you are making for everyone on your list that the month just flies by!  I just wish January & February would do that too!

Are you looking for a way to spend next Saturday January 18th?  How about joining other fellow scrapbookers at a crop in Brockville?  Scrapfest is held yearly & if you would like more information, please let me know or contact Cindy or Maggie.  I will be there offering up a free workshop as well as Stampin' Up & Creative Memories so there is something for everyone!  Hope to see you there!

Thanks for stopping by!
