Meet Your New Close to My Heart Consultant!!!

Time to CELEBRATE!!!! 
    Starting this past week I became a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant! I am very excited about this new adventure! I will be selling CTMH products, hosting home gatherings, organizing classes and workshops, and having a blast doing all this!

   For those of you that don't know, CTMH is a company that specializes in paper crafting supplies and tools (right up my alley!). It's a great company and the products are amazing to work with! Even though I made the decision to not go back to school this year, I really wanted to still do something I loved and be able to do it while still being "home". So here I am!

   Another reason I wanted to become a consultant is because I wanted to start card and scrapbooking workshops for us to enjoy together! Even those of you that do not paper craft like I do; this is a way to learn fun techniques and spend some time together making creative stuff! Plus we can throw in some wine, food, and conversation! What could be better than that?

   With that said, I am starting to plan an Idea Book preview party and Christmas card workshop at my house! I know fall is a busy time of year, but what better time to get together for a couple hours and de-stress by creating! Looking at the calendar, here is what's coming up:

* September is National Stamping Month! 

1.)  I am hosting "Workshop Wednesday" at my house on September 4th from 12-2pm and again at 6-8pm. Please RSVP to this event so I can have enough product for everyone!
Workshop Wednesday will run the first Wednesday of every month* and will feature a make-n-take project that you can do while there! The theme and projects will vary month-to-month, so make sure and mark the calendar! Anyone unable to make the workshop that month, but would still like to make the project can purchase a "kit" from me ahead of time to be shipped to their home address!
2.)  There is a new stamp promotion for the month of September ON TOP of the stamp-of-the-month promotion. It's a 3-in-1 set for $10! Ask me for more details!

3.)  I am also having a "Product Party" at my house on September 15th from 2-5pm**. We will be looking at the featured product of the month, "flip flaps", and there will be special prize 
drawings! Please RSVP to this event so I can have enough product for everyone!
    Do NOT be intimidated to come to a workshop! You do not need to be a "creative" person to do this! The workshops lay it all out for you so it's painless and easy to follow! I also will have lots of promotions, giveaways, and fun prizes at each event! So make sure you check my social media pages often! I cannot wait to help you create something wonderful!

   I am really excited to be doing this, and I cannot wait to share my techniques and crafting knowledge with all of you! If you have any questions about CTMH or would like to see a Fall/Winter Idea Book & Catalog before the workshop, please just contact me! I would love to help you!

   I can't wait to hear back from you all! I hope this finds you all doing well and enjoying your week! I will stay in touch as things progress! Thanks for supporting and helping me as I get started on this new adventure in my life, and please contact me with any questions you may have! I am always here to help!
Here's to life, love, and creativity!

* If the first Wednesday falls on a holiday or vacation day for me, everyone will be notified ahead of time, and a new date will be shared!

**Date and time may change depending on people's availability! I will keep everyone informed of these changes in advance!
