I'm back . . . SORRY it's been so long . . .

I've been doing 30 Days of Thankfulness on Facebook and my personal blog. Today, I wanted to make sure I shared it here, as well!

Day 22: Today I am thankful for my wonderful "customers" who have become some great friends! While our relationships might have started out because of my business, I am so very glad that you are now friends! You really do mean a lot to me and have added so much to my life!

Today a very dear friend called to wish me a Happy Thanksgiving, who I originally met because of Close To My Heart. She has become such an inspirational part of my life and has helped me through some challenging times and helped me to see some things that I hadn't seen before, both personally and professionally! She is truly a blessing in my life!

I'm traveling the next two days to spend Thanksgiving with my "family" in San Angelo, so I'm not sure if my blog will get updated, but my daily "thankful" posts will be on FB, so you can check them out there if you want! www.Facebook.com/JennyMay3

Just in case, I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving and hope you are spending it with loved ones, if possible, and if not - know that you are thought of and loved!

Blessings to you all,
Jenny-May

Vendor Fair project...

Hi there, everyone! I just wanted to post a quick note to say "Thank You" to Jennifer Aquino with Mary Kay and Becky Kilgore with Pampered Chef for coming over for the Vendor Fair. We had lots of fun chatting and I was happy to spend time getting to know you both better this weekend! We had so much fun, we're doing it again on 3 Dec from 6-9 PM and will be adding Scentsy and possibly more, so I hope some of you can join us again! I'll post more information soon!

In the mean time, here is the SUPER CUTE gift tag that we made this weekend! I used the Stamp of the Month, Cherish the Day, and the December 25thstamp set along with the Believe paper pack and New England Ivy ink and a Bling Assortment button to make it! Super easy and super cute to add to a gift!

My layout from corporate...

that I received while I was in Detroit at Regionals is soooo nice! I wanted to share it with you all, even though it's not one that I made. They do a small awards presentation for the group that attends and I was honored to received the highest Team Sales for the quarter. Thanks so much to my team, as they are the reason I was shockingly blessed with this award! The Angel Bay Crafting Hearts team was #1 in Team Sales for size 16-29 for Third Quarter 2011 for those in attendance at the Detroit Regional Celebration. As soon as I get the photo printed off, I will get it on the layout and post a new photo, but I wanted to share this with you today!

Hi there, everyone!

So, I had lunch today with a dear friend who made me do some thinking! (Thanks so much for the inspiration I needed Isabel!!!) It has caused me to re-think how I'm interacting with all of you on my blog. So, I'm really going to make a better effort to start doing daily posts, or at least every other day with small tid-bits and start sharing more artwork. I've been sitting at the table creating all afternoon since I left her and am going to jump right in! Some of the artwork I'll be sharing this month is also from the Close To My Heart Regional Celebration that I just attended at the end of Oct. and I just needed to do some finishing touches on it. So, this first card that I'm going to post is one of those...I hope you like it! (Note - the colors aren't exact in the first pic, I guess due to lighting...not sure what was wrong. The second photo is fine. Sorry! You can see the papers in the links with the list of supplies!)



Wishes Card Confidence Program - Item # 9033 (Gallery, Pg 119 - rotated 90 deg.)

Preparation:
1. Cut leaf, tag, and frames from AP cartridge.
2. Cut 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" card,  3 1/2" x 4" piece B&T and 2" x 4" Chocolate CS.
3. Apply Glitz Glitter to leaf and Milepost Circle and set aside to dry.
4. Fold orange B&T in half to form 5 1/2" x 4 1/4 " card base with fold on left edge.
5. Attach two Bigger Brads to top right corner of brown B&T paper and attach brown B&T to card front 3/8" from top and left edges.
6. Attach Chocolate CS to card front 5/8" from left edge and flush with top.
7. Stamp the following with Chocolate ink:
~ "Sending you" sentiment on card front immediately below brown B&T
~"happiness" sentiment on large ticket shape, using masking technique
8. Attach brad and small ribbon slide to Milepost circle.
9. Using 3-D foam tape between layers, attach Bamboo and Goldrush frames.
10. Attach Milepost circle to bottom left corner of frames.

Putting the card together:
1. Using 3-D foam tape, attach layered frame to card front 1" from top and left edges.
2. Attach "happiness" ticket centered on inside of card base.
3. Attach glitter leaf to center of frame with 3-D foam tape.
Let me know if you have any questions or if you'd like to order any of these items to make your own cards! The great thing is that all of these items can then be used for LOTS of other projects, especially the AWESOME AP cartridge!!!

September Dates and Specials!

I just wanted to make sure that everyone knows what this month looks like as far as crops, workshops and specials! I will be hosting a FREE Open Crop at my house on 24 Sep from 3-11 PM. I just need you to RSVP no later than the 22nd so I know who all is attending and so I can give you further details on how to get here! We will do a potluck type meal for dinner with everyone bringing something to share. For this month, we'll make it easy and go with a theme of Simple Salads or Sandwiches.

Also, I'll be doing the Dreamin' WOTG on 28 Sep at 6PM at my house. I need your RSVP no later than 16 Sep with payment at the same time. Here is a photo of the workshop we'll be doing.

 
I hope you can join us!

Now for the Sep Specials from Close to My Heart . . . The Stamp of the Month for this month is Limited Edition and you can purchase it for only $5 with a $50 qualifying purchase. 


Also, with a $75 qualifying purchase, you can get Pair-a-Phrase for FREE! This is a double D-size stamp set that is valued at $35.90!


One great way to qualify for both of these great offers is by getting your Cricut® Art Philosophy Collection if you haven't done so yet. For only $99 you get a terrific collection valued at $129.
Included in the collection are :
- the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge (contains over 700 shapes that can be cut in 46 sizes giving you more than 32,200 options)
- 3 exclusive D-size stamp sets - perfectly coordinate with images on the cartridge
- 3 9x12 Dimensional Elements sheets that coordinate with the cartridge as well
You can mix and match to your hearts content! Stamp on your cricut shape, cover your Dimensional Element with a Cricut Shape, or cut, stamp and then cover!


 If you order your Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge bundle between now and the end of the month,
you will qualify for the $5 Stamp of the Month and the FREE Pair-a-Phrase stamp set!

So, here's what you would be getting with this deal:
  1. Cricut Art Philosophy Collection, Three Stamp Sets (retail value of $17.95 each), & Three Dimensional Element chipboard sheets (retail value of $4.95 each). (Total Retail value of $124.99) for only $99.
  2. The September Stamp of the Month, Limited Edition stamp set (retail value of $17.95) for only $5
  3. Pair-a-Phrase double D-size stamp (retail value $35.90) FREE!
YOU WOULD SAVE -$74.54

Also, for anyone who purchases the Art Philosophy cartridge this month, I will offer a FREE workshop in October for you to show you some of the features and to help get you familiar with it!
