(totaling $120)  Wohoo How much fun would that be??? If I also hosted and a few freinds made purchases I could also get anything from $30 and up to several 50% Off items for being the host.

Leaving on a jet plane

So just what goes through ones head when you finally hit the tarmac. I could have given a huge woop woop in celebration but instead I broke down in tears. This was it. A dream almost. 35 years in the making coming True! ! Of course I was happy but I was also now away from the pressure of everyday life. My house is packed and in storage. My temp accommodation is manageable thanks to my daughter. I have the sciatica threatening each day to worsen and prevent travel, and an amazing group of friends and relatives supporting me for this trip.

I am grateful.  I am humbled. A certain few know just how hard it was to give myself permission and spend money on me. My Mexican family connections are excited. I was, sitting on the tarmac, overwhelmed by all of the Emotions! !,, Now if this back pain would just go away lol…..Arriba! Next flight finally gets me to Mexico.

A Very Happy Mother and great savings for you!

mothers dayI love Mother’s Day. (not just because I was born on that day!) It is a time to celebrate the awsomeness that comes from being a Mum. Imagine the pleasure of Giving mum a hand made card? Or even better a lovely photo wallet? (stay tuned – that post is coming)   CTMH have this lovely stamp set we can use for Mothers day cards and mini photo albums to celebrate and thank our mums, or even give to someone who is a mum in spirit, or perhaps someone who we know is under-appreciated as a mum. A nice little old fashioned snail mail card could just make their day!

Mother’s Day Stamp Set C1577 Just $19

This stamp set is C1577 and you will find it on 86 of your idea book. ( Email nenifoofer@gmail.com if you would like to order one. ) You can take this link to get right to it online. The most difficult decision with this stamp set is which of the four silhouettes to use and what sentiment for inside – are we all likely to ‘quote our mother’s’? Are we like Dad’s only smarter? I love the elegance of this design and it teams well with  the lovely Ariana papers.

 

Ariana Paper Pack – Just $14

 

The card is simple and easy to make and I have FREE kits packed and ready to go. All you need to do is book a home class (if you are within cooee of Mildura), or include this stamp set in your order of $75 or more at  my online store and I will send you the kit free of charge. This offer is limited to April purchases only.

While placing your order make it worth your while to SAVE by getting the Balloon Talk Stamp of the Month and the Free to Be Me Paper packs, BOTH just $5 each with orders totalling $75.

Join in the fun with us and reap the benefits! 

Since joining Close To My Heart I have blossomed! My creative buttons have all been turned on, my confidence us up and my team is growing. I have gone from a struggling direct selling consultant to a successful team leader in a short few months of the change over to this company. CTMH is NEW for us in Australia but the company is very solid with a sound 30 year reputation in the USA and they have it right! I have made some awesome new friendships, I have been fully acknowledged for successes, had some awesome events, and I save a LOT of money doing what I love – scrapbooking and crafting and teaching other how to do it too. EVERYONE is welcome is the company motto and I just love how welcoming that feels. I have team members brand new to scrapbooking, as well as those with loads of experience in paper craft who constantly inspire me. The support and training from CTMH is not just applicable to running a business – it is also applicable to every day life.

Here is what Founding Director Diane Lampert has had to say about Becoming part of the Close To My Heart opportunity

“After 15 years with Creative Memories in Australia, I wondered what my future held when the company ceased operations. Uncertainty turned to certainty—the BEST THING EVER—a new business opportunity with Close To My Heart!

The results are astounding: my Team business is larger than it was previously and my Team is thriving; attendance at events is at an all-time high; new Consultants are engaged and enthusiastic, and everyone is happy working with the expansive Close To My Heart product line and this wonderful company. It’s so exciting to be involved in this fresh start!

Company founder Jeanette Lynton has built this debt-free company over the past 30 years and she has a vision for the next 30 years that every single member of the corporate team embraces and executes every day. Instead of being worried about the direction of my future, I am proud to represent Close To My Heart products and the brand that has been passionately built for many years.

I encourage anyone thinking about making a switch to consider Close To My Heart. I am thankful to have a solid, fun, welcoming new home that values memory keeping as much as I do!”  —  Diane Lampert, Senior Executive Director

You can read more testimonials here.

The bottom line for me is this: I have rediscovered my happy place with Close To My Heart and have total faith that I will be part of this family for many years to come. It would be awesome to share that joy with you and NOW is an especially good time for you to do that. 

Everyone who joins Close To My Heart between now and December 15th will have the opportunity to get this brand new product FREE as soon as it is launched! Isn’t it awesome!

We Sparkled and Shone!

Wow! How awesome is it to have a Founding Director visit your area to present a workshop! I was really excited to have Diane Lampert come to Mildura and help us launch the Holidays from the Heart products at our Sparkle and Shine event. We had many customers and consultants come along and get inky with trees and baubles and some great artwork was produced. I would like to share with you some photos from the event. I have written about my dream to fill the venue with scrapbookers and card makers and I am so glad to say that on this occasion we did achieve the highest numbers yet!

Holidays from the Heart on show

Note – I was busy running around helping with the event so I only have a few photos and none of me – I hope the photos by others will come through soon and I can add them in here.

As a consultant I learned a lot. Our customers had FUN! Many chose to join the CTMH family taking home the best deal we have. It was a fabulous day! Thank you so much to all customers, consultants and especially Diane for coming to visit us!
