Close to My Heart convention 2014

I have been busy busy at convention! We received a new catalog, have seen lots of new products, and I am learning all kinds of new techniques. But more I am in one of my happy places with women I have grown to love and have so much in common with. It’s really like the sorority of the scrapbook world! I will have much more to post in the coming weeks but here are some of the new things we have been playing with.

Im Back, 7 weeks of catch up in one Blog Post!

Hi all I know I know you have missed me.  What a crazy 6 weeks I have had.  I have truly not had any free time.  I haven’t even scrapped, crafted or inked in 6 weeks GASP!  Here a is a brief recap of our last few weeks.

Mid April-Sawyer had his first virus/sickness (which at 5 months is amazing for us)  we ended up taking him to hospital for CROUP.  How is it after 3 kids I had no clue about CROUP

My baby girl turned 5 and had an amazing Frozen party.
