About Me

My name is Susan and I'm a regular mom who discovered in her .. umm - later in life that I like crafty stuff.

I am now happily remarried to my own version of 'Peetra". I have 3 children, plus one stillborn son in my heart always. A 'rescued' Siberian Husky named Oliver, Saved Luna Fish & feeder to many birds in the area ;)

A Multiple Sclerosis Diagnosis in 2012 put me behind in my crafting blog but I am so much better and intend to get this back going. Thanks for the support crafters!

Its finally here...Convention week!!

I am just finishing packing up my supplies to go to the Great Close To My Heart Convention in Washington DC. Myself and 3 other consultants are driving down and rooming together so lots of geeky scrapbook girly time! About a dozen of us from Ontario are meeting up! While we will be overwhelmed by our friendly US consultants...we are growing! ...and I got the most adorable pink and white polka dot suitcase ever!!!

I am so excited for the business and especially all the creative classes! Hours and hours of learning and having fun.

We even have a formal Gala dinner and an awards night! Anita Renfroe - She is known for her “William Tell Momsense” song.~is going to be entertaining us! Her humor centers on her unique blend of sassy, edgy, and slightly offbeat takes on all things female.I love it!!

New Age Classical pianist Jon Smidt is also performing (look here) and our keynote business speaker is the remarkable Mary Christensen. As Always the award-winning Jeanette Lynton will be our creative guru and creative keynote speaker. Her blog is here.

If you have noticed that there is no JULY campaign yet? Apparently it will not be announced until the convention?!!?! Exciting! If you MUST shop now remember that the online store is always open. http://myheart.myctmh.com or consider checking out the studio J site.
I just ordered FIVE Studio J layouts! I am looking forward to them arriving!

It is so wonderful being a CTMH consultant; hobbyist or business. If you want more information please check out the opportunities page here. Next time you can come with us!

While I am away check out the great organizational store called simply Renees. They are having great specials this month on their products. I think they are ingenious and plan to buy some for myself!


I'll be back by monday with all sorts of news and views!
