Jump for Joy + BFCM Virtual stess Bonus!

Ready for some free stuff? In November, you'll earn an extra $20 in free hostess rewards when your party totals $350 or more. In addition, you'll get a SECOND half price item! 

PLUS I've set a personal goal of holding THREE virtual parties over the Black Friday to Cyber Monday weekend and have a special incentive to offer my hostesses.

Be one of the first three people schedule your Black Friday/Cyber Monday virtual gathering and I'll add an ADDITIONAL $20 in product credit for qualifying parties! 

This is in addition to the November hostess special. In other words, over this busy shopping weekend, my virtual hostesses will earn $100 in free product for a Level 3 party!!!!  Email me to get started and rake it in girl!

A weekend party is just what a busy girl like you needs. This time of year, it's so hard to get together with friends. A virtual party, allows you to spend some time together without having to clear your calendar. Your guests participate at the times that are convenient for them.
A virtual party has many of the same elements as a live party including:

  • Fun & friendship: Can't have a party without some fun! Your guests will participate with you in games and other silliness. 
  • Prizes: Just like a live party, I'll give away a few door prizes to reward your guests for participating.
  • Product showcase: Using video and still images, I'll tell your guests about all of our exclusive products.
  • Create & Take: We are a CREATIVE company, so it wouldn't be right to have a gathering without making something. I'll mail a ready to finish card to everyone who participates in your party.
  • Shopping: Your guests will be able to shop for themselves or people on their Chrisstmas list from the comfort of their home. 

Here's how it will work:

WEEK BEFORE: I'll set up your Facebook party and you invite your friends. I'll go ahead and post some introductory information and build momentum for the weekend

WEEKEND: Starting on Black Friday (11/23), I'll post information about specific products, gift giving guides & current specials. We'll play a few games over the weekend giving your guests chances to earn a door prize. I'll also present the project and mail out kits to your guests. Your guests can shop catch up and order through Cyber Monday. 

TUESDAY AFTER: I'll send you the party total so you can pick out your free hostess rewards and half price items!

The last few years, Close To My Heart has had Flash Sales on both Black Friday & Cyber Monday. Although these are never announced ahead of time, it is very likely that we will see some really good deals that weekend. Your guests will get to shop these --- earning you even more rewards!

It's easy and fun! Email me to get started and be one of the and earn the bonus $20 in hostess rewards from me!

Thanks & Giving and other things I love about Fall

Even a summer girl like me love certain things about fall: the crispness of the fall air, the stores filling up with holiday inspiration and family gathering together to name a few. Fall is a also great time to whip out those scrapbooks and share them with loved ones. I’m excited to share this month’s stamp of the month collection because October is such a special month. 

October’s stamp of the month represents everything I love about fall! Packed with heartwarming style, you’ll find little houses with smoke emerging the chimney, fall leaves, hearts, and cozy calligraphy with phrases such as “thanks & giving” “gather” and “home sweet home” just to name a few. 

Imagine scrapbooking your photos from the fall season: family gatherings, fall decor around your home, the foliage in your yard, cooking comfort food in the kitchen. All of these photos will mesh perfectly with these stamps. You could create so many love filled pages to remember. 

The stamp set also works well for fall and thank you cards. Check out these projects from the talented artists at Close To My Heart for some inspiration to help get you started!

If you’re ready to make your purchase- remember that right now you can get this exclusive October Stamp of the Month collection for the discounted price of only $5 with any $50 order. Or you can always order just the stamp of the month for the standard price of $18.95. No need to rush around to different stores to find what you need- you’ll have everything you need to create such fun and memorable keepsakes- delivered right to your door.

Please let me know if you have any questions or wish to share any ideas. This is such a beautiful and inspiring month. I truly hope you enjoy using these stamps in your creative endeavors. Have a fantastic fall everyone! :)

Fall Events: Come get creative with me!

The are is turning cooler and soon the leaves will change color. What does that mean for a crafter? Time to slip into something warm and comfy and start on a new project! If you are in the Arnold/St. Louis area, I have several events scheduled scheduled to help you carve out some fun creative time.

See a complete list of events with times, prices and other details>>


In November, I'll be having my regular "Finish It Friday" 5 hour crop plus a Saturday Day Crop back to back. This means you can start your projects on Friday and leave everything set up so when you arrive on Saturday morning everything is ready to pick back up! On Saturday I'll be serving lunch plus have drinks and snacks on hand.


Want to sent handmade cards this year? Come to one or both of my All You Can Make Card Buffet (Christmas Edition) for a productive night of card-making. On the buffet, you will find a variety of card kits. The papers are pre-cut and accessories are gathered so you can stamp and assemble your cards relatively quickly. Make a variety or multiples of the same one. It's up to you!


Our BINGO night in September was so much fun, I've decided to host another Girl's Night out in January. I'm still working on the details, but know that it will be a night filled with fun using brand new 2019 Seasonal Expression 1 products.

You'll get a copy of the new Idea Book, a goody bag with product samples and 3 projects to create! At the event, you can enjoy a yummy snack, play games and win prizes. In addition, you'll get exclusive (attendee only) specials and all orders will go toward a Mystery Hostess Gathering. You don't want to miss this fun night!

You can sign up for all of these events at See you there!
