I recently became a Close To My Heart consultant.   I thought I would take a chance and try my hand at business.  It has been slow getting going, but I hope to improve as time goes on. 

If you are not familar with Close To My Heart, head over to my website judifarrell.ctmh.com and take a cruise through the catalog.  Close To My Heart has paper, stamps, tools, and more for all your papercrafting needs.  Their glue is AWESOME!  Their papers are quality weight as well as beautiful and their stamps and inks are gorgeous!  I will be posting in the near future some projects using CTMH products.  I would be honored if you would choose me as your consultant.  

Currently, CTMH is running a special---  Spend $35 or more and get 24 sheets of Dotty for You paper for $5.  WHAT A DEAL!!  This is double sided paper. Tons of uses for it!  Or, spend $400 or become a consultant and get it for free! :)  Free is ALWAYS good! :)

I will be headed to a local crop this weekend.  I am going to be doing my first make and take.  Wish me luck.  That's all for now.  Have a great day and..............

I'M BAAAAACK!!!!!! :)

Hello everyone!   I bet you thought I had fallen off the face of the earth.  No such luck.  I just got kinda pooped out on crafting and needed to take a break.  Now, I am back at it and enjoying it SO much!  I must say, I enjoy it the most when I can craft with my daughters.  Recently, I was able to do just that!!  First, my oldest daughter came for a visit and we made a trip to Hobby Lobby together.  I think we spent close to 3 hours in there just shopping around for whatever caught our eye.  (Later in this post, you will see what we made.)  We came home and crafted for several hours together.  She is MUCH more crafty and talented than I am, but we just had a wonderfully relaxing time crafting together.  Then, a couple days later, my younger daughter came home for a weekend visit and we sat ALL day Saturday and worked on crafts for a luncheon she was in charge of decorating for.  We had so much fun decorating candles and making special gift cards.  I'm glad my girls like to craft with me.  I LOVE to craft with them!! 

Let's see, since I last posted, I became a Grandma for the first time!  He is the cutest, most alert little guy ever!  Lots of dark auburn hair and green eyes.  So precious!  We enjoyed having him visit for a few days.  His name is Stafford.  He has 4 legs and can run like the wind.  He is having a hard time with potty training, but we Grandmas know that that sometimes takes awhile to accomplish. :)  Here is a photo of the newest addition to the family with his "uncle".

I also became a Close To My Heart independent consultant.  So far, I am not doing so well.  I will probably be de-moted  my first month.  We'll just have to wait and see.  Close To My Heart has beautiful scrapbooking papers, stamps, tools, etc. for scrapbooking and cardmaking.  Their quality is just fantastic!  You can check out my website judifarrell.ctmh.com and see all the wonderful items they have.  Then, you can order some from me by clicking the join button on the lower right hand of the homepage and adding to your cart. :)  I will be featuring some crafts on this site as soon as I can using their product. :)

Here is the craft my oldest daughter and I worked on last week.  I LOVE how it turned out. :D

It was just plain old chipboard letters that we found at Hobby Lobby.  I added some beautiful paper and made a few embellishments and inked it up a bit and BAM! beautiful wallhanging even if I do say so myself. :D  Here are a couple more views of it:

I cut the butterfly out with my Cricut machine and embossed it  then glued it down.  I made the flower out of some old sheet music a bought at the thrift store and inked the edges of it before gluing it down.  Then, I mod podged the whole thing.  Looks pretty, don't ya think?

That's all for now........please check out my Clost To My Heart site and help me out by ordering some great product. 

Have a great day and...........................

GO CRAFT!!!!!!  :D
