I'm back from Convention ...

Wow! What a busy few days I had at Close To My Heart's annual convention. It was packed with fun, friends, learning, new products (which I cannot share just yet), new techniques, and just fun! While I can't share the new stuff just yet, let me share with you a little bit of the fun we had.  My daughters and I love the piano and we've known of pianist John Schmidt for a few years so imagine my excitement knowing I would get to hear him play live! Here's a YouTube clip of a song he played for us; he and his cellist, Stephen Nelson, are really worth listening to!
A great comedienne, Anita Renfroe, entertained us at our closing banquet.
Here's a picture of her and a couple of  links to her newest "spoof" songs, the one John Schmidt is playing above, "Love Story," especially for younger moms, and one that's, well, for the ones beyond preschoolers: "All the Wrinkled Ladies."

Well, I'm still recovering but thought I'd share little with you.  Talk to you soon!

Making memories with you,

I am so excited!

This coming week a lot of Close To My Heart Consultants (including little ol' me) will be enjoying the annual CTMH Convention in ...
Washington, DC!  Three days of non-stop art, fun, friends, cropping, cards, swaps, NEW CTMH products coming for the Fall, and so much more!  I can hardly wait! Later in the month of July I hope to have at least one card workshop so I will post about that but, for now, I'm just excited about my trip!!  I may post from there and let you in on some of the fun if I can. Prayers for a safe trip are appreciated!

As always ...
Making memories with you,
