Target Opened Up!!! :o)

Yesterday was the 1st day that the public can go shopping at our Target store. It was sooo fun to go shopping there. Now we have a more verity in our town. Yeah!!! :o) I especially like the dollar isle. I found a lot of stuff but it adds up really FAST!!!


Fall & Winter Pictures of My Girl

These pictures were taken one day after another. I heard that it was going to snow so I hurried up and took pictures of her in the leaves. I wanted her to lay down flat on her belly and her head up but instead she posed like this and it was sooo cute. (My husband covered her up with leaves) This was on Monday and when I woke up on Tuesday it didn't snow like the weather guy said it was going to. Then all of a sudden I looked out the window again a couple of hours later and it was really coming down. The snow was beautiful and my girl LOVED playing in it and eating the snow. Like most kids like to do.

Mini Candy Bar Wrapper & A Mini Altered Notebook

For the turkey I used Close To My Heart stamps Playful Petals for the feathers and for the eyes& I used Close To My Heart stamp Gratitude for the thing that hangs down off the beak area( I don't know what that is called :o)) I just stamped the leafs on colored paper and cut out. The "wrapper" part I cut paper 5" x 1.5". For the snowman wrapper I used Close To My Heart All Decked Out the Novemeber Stamp Of The Month. For the altered snowman notebook. I bought a little notebook at Target for a $1 and 8comes in a pack. Anyways I unwound the spiral and add paper and put the spiral back on. I used Close To My Heart All Decked Out the Novemeber Stamp Of The Month. That is it. They were really fun to do.

Operation Smile

Close To My Heart would like to invite you to join us in supporting Operation Smile, a non-profit organization whose medical volunteers travel the globe correcting facial deformities in thousands of children.

A portion of every stamp set you purchase will be donated to Operation Smile. However, I would also like to encourage you to round up your Close To My Heart purchases to the nearest whole dollar each time you make a purchase on my website at

It only takes $240 for one operation to help a child. It's very easy for some of us to spend $240 at one store, but for a child with this facial deformity, it can mean so much!

To learn more please visit Operation Smile today at...

I made this card out of the Just Because card kit that I got with my new consultant kit. It was fast, simple, & easy. Everything came precut so i just had to follow the direction, stamp & glue. That was it!!!

Here is a mini backpack that I did out of paper.


Sarah Palin, my daughter & I

Here is a picture of us on Oct 31, 2007. It was the Grand Opening of our Super Wal*Mart and she spoke there. The picture didn't turn out to good though.


I GOT IT!!!!

I got my new consultant kit on Tuesday!!! :o) I was excited to see the UPS guy delivering my box. It was like Christmas in September!!! There is a LOT of fun things in it. I did get a bonus for signing up this month, since it is National Stamp Month. Every new consultant that signs up for the month of September gets a free Just Because card kit. The kit comes with a full set of Just Because stamps, 16 cards that you can make & the accessories to go with it. I made one card and it was very simple. CTMH put a booklet in the box to tell you how to create the perfect card. It was FUN!!!
