I am extremely blessed!

I have not posted since leaving for Convention for various reasons, all which have to do with numerous blessings - I was not sure what to share first!  :0)

I had a blessed and enjoyable time at Close To My Heart's annual Convention in Anaheim, enjoyed spending time with my family afterwards, and am looking forward to great things on the horizon with my family, my profession and my business!  I am thankful you are apart of my journey as a viewer of my blog.

Giving gifts is one of my joys of being a part of Close To My Heart, a company which allows me to make inexpensive, handmade gifts which are made from my heart.  This year I had the pleasure of making quite a few gifts for my team members, fitting for the theme of our Convention - "When You Wish".

This was a fun layout I made (there's were made with some modifications) but I had fun making this Minnie Mouse, out of the Cricut, to coordinate with our Convention colors.  (Oh!  Did I mention that Close To My Heart has a new and exclusive Cricut cartridge?!  It is totally awesome and I am awaiting the arrival of mine!  I will be sharing more on the Cricut in the next few days so watch for those details!)

Then, I found these cute acrylic crowns at GASC and figured they would make a cute goodie for my team members - as bag tags - also to coordinate with the event colors.

This was a fun make 'n take we made at GASC and I solely participated with the idea that it too would make a great treat for my team members and friends.  I used our scallop circle punch and circle punch to create the topper and one of my club members blessed me with Mickey Mouse image punch. 

These clear bags can be purchased from ClearBags.com and were super easy to fill (with the help of my Dad).  Thanks Dad!

I enjoyed distributing the team and friend goodies and appreciated the kind responses I received from all.  It was fun to put a smile on their face.  I do enjoy giving.

I am looking forward to a blessed and prosperous CTMH year!  Keep watching my blog for important campaigns, creative ideas and so much more!
