Close to My Heart Convention Recap/Retiring Products
Now, that I'm a little more rested from my week in Dallas for the Close to My Heart Convention, it's time for a recap of some of the fun had there. First of all, can I say I'm still on creative overload? There are always so many wonderful ideas and crafting goodness that I leave with my head spinning with all the things I want to create. If you've ever considered being a consultant, the opportunity to attend convention is well worth becoming one. (If you've considered it, let's talk--it's less expensive than ever to sign up). Here's just a few quick snapshots of some of the ideas featured at Extravaganza, a day of wonderful classes. And they are all made with new product that will be in the new Close to My Heart Idea Book that goes live August 1st!
These pinwheels were made by Victoria Fage with what I believe is going to be one of my favorite new paper packets, Clementine.
Michelle Snyder made this fabulous photo tray. Yes, we have photo trays in the new catalog! I'm very excited about this.
And what is convention without fabulous fun? As a Senior Director with Close to My Heart, I was spoiled rotten. First of all, they took all the directors to dinner at Eddie Deen's where the rolls and the steak were a little bit of heaven. And they presented us with a bit of Texas bling.
And of course, my favorite part of convention is reconnecting with old friends and making new ones. I absolutely love the camaraderie amongst Close to My Heart consultants. We support one another through thick and thin and the encouragement, generosity and open sharing of ideas is truly amazing.
If you don't know much about Stacy Julian, you should. Check out her blog at stacyjulian.com and I do believe you will become a big fan in no time.
And of course, there was the catalog unveiling. I can't even go into all the goodness in this new one--home decor items, new colors, new paper, new stamps, new accessories, new Studio J announcements. It is going to take several posts. But I have catalogs now and you can being ordering from this catalog August 1st. Contact me and I'll make arrangements to get you one. You are going to love it!
