Well, I woke up this morning and realized it had been quite some time since I had posted on my blog. I can't believe how quickly time is going by this year. So much has happened in such a short amount of time. But, I guess that is what happens when you get older.
For starters, there is a fantastic promotion going on with Close To My Heart! If you sign up to be a consultant in the month of April, you get 4 additional stamp sets free! You will get the April, May, June, and July Stamps of the Month at no additional cost! Here is a picture of the extra stamp sets:
For my April Card Workshop, I'm incorporating the April Stamp of the Month (3rd set from the left in the light green). It is so cute and goes well with the Claire paper pack.
If you have been thinking about becoming an independent consultant with Close To My Heart, now is a great time since you get free stuff added to your new kit! Feel free to contact me and I can walk you through all the steps. Super easy and loads of fun! www.mjwest.ctmh.com
Along with great promotions, I've been ramping up my Close To My Heart business. This past Saturday I had a booth at my very first craft fair. Although there were very few people there, I made several contacts and enjoyed the 2 booths on either side of me. I figure, what the heck, I'll use it as a learning experience. This upcoming Saturday (4/13) is my monthly card workshop. We will be doing 2 Mother's Day cards and 4 female birthday cards all using the Claire paper pack. The Claire paper pack has some fun spring color that really pop, so I'm pretty excited about the cards.
In March, I turned 40. Can you believe it?! I sure can't! 40 sounds so old, but it really isn't. I don't feel like 40 and I know I don't look it. I'll be honest with you, I'm very glad to be out of my 30's. They were none too kind to me. But, that is the past and I'm moving on. I spent about 3 weeks in March celebrating. Of course that means I gained back every ounce I had lost and then some. I'm also way off my exercise and dieting, so I now have to get back in the groove of that. Luckily our weather is turning nice again and I can walk to work. It is only a mile and that will allow me about 2 miles per day. Not too bad.
Ok, well, I have a ton of crafting to do since all my friends are getting married or having a baby or their oldest is graduating from high school. Good gravy time is just flying by! Have a great week and I promise to be back to blogging much more often.
Christmas in July
