End of a season

Dear friends and partners in craftiness,

Fifteen and a half years ago I joined Close to my Heart to do something I loved and make a little money while doing it. I have accomplished that goal. I have loved scrapbooking and learned so much more from my time with this company. I still feel they have the best products out there. I have enjoyed meeting many new people of whom many have become my friends. I have scrapped many memories for my grandkids and kids and I hope they will enjoy them forever.

But, life has different seasons and my newest season really doesn't leave time for working my business. I will still scrap and hopefully still keep up with my crafty friends, but I need to use this time for my family. Life is so short and we don't have all the time in the world, we only have today. I want to keep my priorities straight and have chosen as of the end of this week not to continue with Close to My Heart.

I want to thank everyone who has visited my website, blog or facebook page for your support and encouragement. Thanks to my husband who has a few times supported me so I could stay active. Thank you to those who have purchased great product from me over the years. I will miss it but am looking forward to what the Lord has for me now. Most of all thank you for being my friends. May the Lord bless you in all your endeavors as you seek to serve Him.

Happy New Year!

2016...amazing!  Here's hoping your new year is off to a great start!  I received my new Close To My Heart planner and am using this weekend to get started with it and get it set up.  It has been a busy couple of days, getting back into the swing of things after all our holiday visiting. 

We enjoyed visiting family and a few friends over Christmas.  Seeing our grandchildren and celebrating Christmas with them!  Now it is time to settle back into some kind of routine. 

How is your new year starting?!  I can't wait to get back to the office and start creating!  My mother-in-law gave my daughter-in-law some special pictures and treasures of her since my new granddaughter is named after her.  So we are working on how to preserve them for our little one.

Let me know what you will be working on this year!

We have a new addition!

I just wanted to share my newest granddaughter!  She is just a couple of weeks old and I was able to be there when she was born and for a little while after.  I am thankful that my husband allows me to spend time with the grands and my kids!  This Thanksgiving I was thankful for a safe and healthy delivery for my dear daughter-in-law and grand daughter!  My dear hubby also had surgery during my absence and I am thankful for a uneventful day there too and that my son could be with him.  Then darling daughter took care of him during her Thanksgiving break!  Family is wonderful!  Hope your Thanksgiving was special too!

I have been MIA for a while.  As most of you know we are remodeling a house. Almost gutting it in places.  SO, we are making alot of progress and I have been busy, busy painting!!! and painting and painting!  BUT, I am excited that the next room ready to paint is the office!  MY place!  

I have already been working on painting old cabinets we are repurposing for the office.  They are almost done, and now the room itself is almost ready to paint! I still mull around how everything will be organized but, I can't wait to get it all into motion. 

We have seen so much accomplished this week, flooring in mudroom, kitchen, livingroom, most of the dinning room and the small bath almost done as well as dd's room!  Fun,fun and TONS of work by my dh and ds.  So, if you are missing me, that's where I am, prepping for lots of posts from the new place in a little while!

I will post a sneak peek soon so you too, can see how far we have come!

Thanks for your patience!
