My upcoming workshop

WHEN:  March 18-19
WHERE:  Historic Balch Hotel, Dufur, OR
COST:  $60.00

I am so excited about this event!  The setting is not only beautiful, but very relaxing.  When you click on the link below, be sure to take an extra minute and view the rest of their website.  My dear sister-in-law and brother-in law (Samantha and Jeff) spent countless hours and months restoring this historic hotel.  What a work of love.

Friday night we will complete the Photo Cube, and Saturday we will do the 3-ring album.  Bring any project you want to work on as well because you can crop till the wee hours of the morning if you like.  This workshop is loaded with lots of goodies - door prizes - and fun. You'll want to reserve your spot now - so head on over to:  to get all of the details.  Of course if you have any questions you can always just shoot me an email as well

Hope to see you there!

And so it begins.....

 Yes my friends, I have decided to join the world of blogging!  Shocked as you may be, it will never reach the magnitude of MY shock!  But I guess you CAN get an old dog to walk further than to the food bowl and back!

However, as I attempt to connect with my crafting world a little easier, as well as family - you will all need to be patient with me as I learn the ropes to designing and posting.  GadZooks - it only took me 2 hours to figure out how to get a header to work!  I may be in trouble here.

So, join me on my new adventure - leave comments on how I can make it more usable for you - and  for goodness sake- if you have time to show me how to do this with greater sure to hustle on over here and show me how - for pete sakes.

Now a little history on the blog name:  I am an independent consultant for Close To My Heart and this is the name of my "unit".  I have been with CTMH for over 10 years and have been amazed at not only how far they have come, but how they remain on the forefront of everything hip and cool and innovative in the crafting world.  Be sure to jump on over to Jeanette Lynton's website if you get a chance.  Jeanette is the beautiful mastermind behind CTMH.  The other site I currently have listed is Naomi Smith, my amazing "up-line".  I'll add more as I get this all figured out.

This ends my first post - now I'm off to figure out how to add photos and stuff.
