My Frame of Mind

These are my thoughts, however I may quote those who are smarter and wiser than I am.

15 years...It's a Beautiful Thing....

I love bling..shiny sparkles on a card, sparkly men who are immortal (go Team Edward!) and diamonds of course, too.

15 years ago, I saw this little magazine-like catalog with cute little stamp images and was hooked. I signed with a company called DOTS (Dozens of Terrific Stamps)to be an Independent Consultant. 10 years ago the company changed vision and the name to Close To My Heart.

The rollercoaster ride has been such that I cannot imagine what my life would have been without.
The friends unmeasureable, the business incredible and the products are truly one-of-a-kind.
No matter what has gone on in my life, Close To My Heart has always been there for me. Whether full-time, or part-time, I've always had a place in my heart for this company. They resolute true values for us and I know them to be the number one company in an industry that, in this economy, could be precarious.

As I ready to travel to DC for our Annual Convention, I am also celebrating 15 YEARS as a Consultant.

I am honored to wear this in celebration of my longevity AND to still represent Close To My Heart for many years to come...

It's Almost Time....

For Close To My Heart's Annual Convention in DC !
It's also my 15th year Anniversary with them as well...a rarety or so I've been told.
Not that the pressure is on or anything, but time is running out for creating swap items, room-mate gifts,etc.

Here's a peek into my harried studio!

It's Beginning to look a lot like Convention!

For Convention this year, we were able to buy a journal with 
theme colors and logo, Picture This.
Along with a journal aspect, I'll be using mine as an autograph book.
(the shabby chic is my touch, of course!)

After all..it IS my 15 year Anniversary with Close To My Heart!

Love...just LOVE Gadgets! *Edited*

I love gadgets...and am an enabler.
Which means I love people who love gadgets and then enable me to enable others to love them, too.
does that make sense? just "checkin' in on that.


Anyhoot! I love this gal...Stacy Julian.









She's a MAJOR enabler in my life.
A few things that she brought to my life (other than the obvious love of scrapbooking and all that comes with it) are my favorite green shoes.
fabulous sale


And these, which make me very happy, too!

and now of course......





Well, since we're BFF's and all, we both love




What's a girl gonna do?
*snort*
I think I should use this little pup to collect all cool green things that she's enabled  me to bring into my life and scrapbook them!
