Convention highlights

Some of my favorite peeps with Close to My Heart:   Cindy (left) is my fabulous upline and Denise
is my sideline.  This was at the awards banquet.  Everyone puts on their prettiest and comes together for dinner, awards and entertainment which was the Texas Tenors.  If you have never heard of the Texas Tenor I suggest you google them.  They were EXCELLENT.  The whole evening was great.

Debbie (left) and I shared a room and Nancy has been our roommate other years.  We are die hard CTMH peeps.  And we love going to convention....every year we say "It can't possibly be any better next year" and every year Jeanette Lynton (Founder and CEO of Close to My Heart) and her staff manage to WOO us with a better convention.   How is that possible?!  We don't know but we look forward to it.

These are 3 of the minds that work so hard to make convention what it is!! 

Close to My Heart Directors are treated like royalty.  They even got their own stars this year!!!  It was really fu…

Club Meeting is July 28th.

Hello fellow crafters,
      It appears that I made a mistake on my dates for this month's club meetings.  I had posted earlier that we would meet this coming Saturday the 21st.  Our meeting is actually next Saturday the 28th of July.   I apologize for the mix up.  But know that I will have exciting things to share with you on the 28th.  Looking forward to seeing all of you then.

Operation Smiles Quarterly Crop

With the rainy weather all weekend, it was a perfect time for our crop!  Well to be honest any time is perfect to crop, but whatever.  We had a great time and everyone got a lot done!  We mixed things up this time and played some fun games.  One make n take was teaching us how to make this magnolias:

And the other was decorating homemade fabric bookmarkers.  Both are great to give as gifts or keep for your own use.

June crop started a new year for making donations for Operation Smiles.  We got off to a good start!
Thank you to all who participated in our crop.  We are here to help one another and you ladies always do just that. Thank you for giving to the children to give them a perfect smile!!! 
Hope you have a week full of blessings.
