It's been a while...

I wanted to update you all on why I suddenly went from blogging every week to every other week and finally had a bit of a hiatus.

I started a new job, which left me drained most evenings and weekends and uninspired to make cards, which I miss doing. On top of that, my Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, but thankfully it is all removed and she is making a speedy recovery with no need for chemo. However, there is nothing like coming home from vacation to hear those ominous words... "Mom has cancer".

It certainly turns your life completely upside down - and all of a sudden I was managing my own emotions, taking care of Dad, my new job, and my brother's emotions as he was out in California. And then this week my brother-in-law is visiting for several weeks from Denmark and I have a cold.

There is some truth to "when it rains it pours..."

However, I am very much looking forward to running my second workshop with the girls on Nov 24th and once I get rid of this pesky cold I can get going again. In the meantime, I wanted to tell you about some amazing things going on in November.

This is November's beautiful stamp of the month, "Capture the Date". For those of you who love scrapping with numbers this is the perfect set for you. As an early Xmas gift, if you qualify with a 50$ minimum order and order the SOTM you can also get another set for 50% off! That's all A-E and M size sets in the catalog.

In keeping with the company name "Close to my Heart", for each SOTM sold CTMH will donate 1$ towards the fund set up to help Hurricane Sandy victims in the US. How fabulous is that?!?

Happy scrapping, and I will be back to my cards in no time once I beat this cold,


  1. So sorry to hear about your Mom Sandi -- glad she is doing well!! Time in my craft room is usually my 'therapy' for all the curve balls life throws at me!! Hope it does the same for you!

  2. Thank you for your kind words Carla - very much appreciated :) I'm looking forward to getting back in my craft room once again!
