Convention Excitement!!!

I am so excited about all the news that came from convention-goers this last weekend!! There are lots of great things in store with Close to My Heart this next season and I can hardly wait to share them with you all.

Here are a few key changes: 1. We are bringing out 8 new colors in the Summer palettes, and retiring eight.  2. Hostess Plus rewards now start at $250 instead of $350. 3. Four beautiful new paper packs. 4. Colored sparkles and adhesive pearls!!!!

There are lots more exciting things in store that I will share in the next month or so. The Autumn/Winter Idea Book goes live on September 1st!!!

Now for something special from convention…….I was honored to be asked by corporate office to create something for the silent auction that is held at every convention. The proceeds from the auction benefit our charity—Operation Smile. It took me several weeks to decide what to make, but finally came up with this:


This office set uses the adorable Splendor paper pack and accessories. I don’t know how much it ended up going for, but I do know that at one point it was up to $70!!
