Close To My Heart - CTMH

I made it official today and giving it a shot, I am now a new consultant with Close to My Heart!  I've been on the fence for a while and decided to jump in and give it a go.  I looked at both CTMH and SU and haven't been that impressed with the new SU catalog and stamp sets.  Not bashing SU, they're awesome and I'm sure I will still buy their stamps, but nothing strikes my fancy at this time.

So if you're interested in having a gathering, becoming a consultant or just want information let me know!  I don't have my kit yet, but I'm sure it won't take long to get here.

Come shop with me at my Close To My Heart website and check out the monthly specials and promotions!!!  Time is running out to on the Cricuit Promotion, join my CTMH  team for just $99.00 and get any Cricuit Cartridge for FREE!  You already get over $400.00 in products and supplies and the Cricuit Cartridge is a great added bonus.  This promotion ends 4/30/14, so act fast!!!!!

Blast From The Past Frame!

I always look forward to my turn on the Pinque Peacock Blog and plan out my project, but it doesn't always work out!  I have several projects always going at once as I'm sure all crafters do, but the last month or so they're not turning out like I envisioned them in my head!

So after my project for today's blog post was a bust, I did another quick project so as not to let our awesome followers down (or you may be let down when you see it)!

So here is my quick and easy frame.  I used a Burlap Fabric Splendid Swirl and a 3/4 inch Fabric Covered Button that ca be found at the Pinque Peacock Shop.



 The photo is of my son back in 1979 making his silly face, he was 2.

Hopefully the projects I'm still working on will turn out better than the last few!  I've been trying to be more creative and use different mediums, but I guess it just takes some practice.  I always expect to be good at everything and be able to just jump right in without practice, but it's just not the case!!  So I've been experimenting and seeing what works out best for me and have a big mess everywhere (shocking I know).  If it was all neat and tidy then I wouldn't be trying right?

So I am hoping to be posting a few new projects in the next few weeks if all goes well.

We are about to finish up some outside projects on the house and the biggie is painting.  UGH, I hate painting!!  The guys did build a new garage door and it looks so nice and will look better once it's painted.  But the outside is looking good or better anyways.  I do need to power wash yet, but have to borrow it from my wonderful brother.

So have a great rest of the week!

For the Spring Time Blog Hop I've created a card using the showcased products for this
 month.  I usually only use 1 or 2 of the items but for this card I used everything
 I was send.  I am horrible at challenges, draw a blank every time, so I challenged 
myself to use all of the items in one project.  I had stuff everywhere!  
There was paper spewed all over the place along with embellishments,
 tins, chipboard, etc.  Tried to make something unique and fun,
 but didn't work out and I was running out of time as always.
 I am still my own worst critic and nothing was working for me so I thought card!  
Cards are not my thing, but seem to be
 making them a lot lately.

So here is the card that I made.


Here are a few close-ups of the new Pinque Peacock items.  I've added some bling
 to the centers, there's no such thing as too much bling!

Quick Ribbon Jar

Well it's Monday and hope everyone had a great weekend!  It seems that lately life has been so busy for so many people and myself included.  I have my mojo back lately and have been going in 100 different directions on lots of different projects, but the only problem with that is nothing is done (don't you hate that)!!

So for my project for today I had to do something quick and simple.  I hope it's not disappointing, but when I do finish things up you all will be the first to see them (one for the next Pinque Peacock blog hop).

Here is my Quick Ribbon Jar.  I used one of my favorite 3/4 inch fabric covered buttons and 3GirlJam crinkle ribbon.


Here is a closer look at the beautiful fabric covered button.


Trying to give my craftroom a 'vintagie' look/feel and love this button and ribbon and goes perfect on my table with all the little spools of ribbon inside.

Thank you so much for stopping by and please stop by often!!
