Val's Baptism - CTMH Wings WOTG

2 Corinthians 5:17-18, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.”

This is the layout I will be showing the ladies at our first Faithbooking meeting at our Church on Tuesday night. I used Close to My Heart Wings Level 2 Paper Pack and the layout is my version of the Workshop On The Go.

Finally set up the scrapping area

I finally finished setting up my scrap area in the garage. Still need to hang rolls of ribbon but other than that it is pretty much finished. I will need to work in it for awhile to see if I need to change anything around. I have so much to catch up on. Now all I have to do is find the time to do it.

Yesterday, I attended a celebration of life service for my Pastor's Mom. I can truly say that it was one of the sweetest, heartfelt and Holy Spirit filled services I have ever attended. God's peace, comfort and strength exuded from Pastor Mike as he spoke about his Mom. I did not have the privilege of meeting his Mom, but, from the words of those who knew her, she was a sweet, sweet child of God and was forever faithful to serving him. I am sure that she is delighting in being with her Lord and Savior and is free from pain and suffering for evermore. Until we all meet again.

Collin's Birthday

This is a Wall Organizer I sewed for my grandson for his 12th. Birthday. He reads all the time and now he has a place to keep his new Kindle which he also got for his birthday along with other things he likes to keep handy, like his drawing books that his other Grandma got him for his birthday. He is quite the litlle artist and very creative. He also got a new bike to replace the bike that was stolen on our trip across country as we were moving to North Carolina.

No School, No Projects done.

No school for the kids today so I did not get any projects done today. I did manage to cut some fabric for a project I am working on for my grandson's birthday on Wednesday. I plan on putting that together tomorrow. The kids will be home again but I will be more prepared for them being home tomorrow. I made my first batch of Snow Cream today. It was delicious! I had never heard of it before, but, some friends of mine from church were talking about it on Facebook so I looked it up and found an easy recipe for it. I was surprised that it tasted just like Ice Cream!

Snow, Snow, GO AWAY

We are supposed to get between 3 and 5 inches of snow by tomorrow morning with freezing rain on top of that! Yuck!!!!! I'm already over it! I am ready for warm weather and a trip to the beach!! Will try to get some projects done today since I am stuck in the house today anyway!

Earn Rewards the Online Way

Earning more rewards sooner is just the beginning
of the good news. We are stacking the excitement
higher by making Hostess Rewards available to more
people. When you hold an EZ Invite® Gathering, an
in-person, face-to-face Home Gathering is no
longer necessary in order to earn Hostess Rewards.
The EZ Invite guests can all shop online, and when
the Gathering reaches $150/$175 in sales with at
least two orders placed, your hostess earns rewards!

An EZ Invite Online
Gathering offers convenience
to everyone!

An EZ Invite Online Gathering has so many
benefits beyond the Hostess Rewards. It offers
convenience to everyone! There is very little prep
time for you and your hostess, and guests love the
convenience of shopping at their leisure from
home, anytime. They have immediate access to the
Idea Book online and will have their order
delivered directly to their door!
EZ Invite Online Gatherings are a great
benefit to you because you have more potential
hostesses available; you are not restricted by
proximity or time. Forget restricting the guest
list to the number of folding chairs available—
now your hostess can invite as many people as
she wants, from Aunt Alice in Albuquerque to
best friend Caitlin in Concord. And no one needs
to reserve a day and time to host a Gathering in
person; everyone shops online when they have a
free moment. Invite them to become a hostess
and earn wonderful rewards with an EZ Invite
Online Gathering.
For Consultant Debra Handy from Huntersville,
North Carolina, Online Gatherings are ideal. She
says, “Most of my ladies live out of my area. I know
most of them will take advantage of the online EZ
Invite option.” She also points out another benefit
of online shopping: “I live in an 8.5% tax area, so it
is cheaper for them to order online!”

New Rewards

With new ways to earn Hostess Rewards and with
Plus! rewards available sooner, we are topping off
our towering stack with brand new products.
New for Autumn/Winter 2010, we are offering
one collection that includes a 12-month Studio J®
membership along with a new My Legacy® faux
leather album to appeal to your online-inclined
hostesses; another collection features Jeanette
Lynton’s latest scrapbooking how-to book, Magic,™
for interactive fun; one includes the new Hooligan
papers and cute creatures; and one has the Olivia
papers and coordinating stamps. Entice your
hostesses to book another Gathering with these
exciting new Hostess Collections!
Increase your sales and help your hostesses earn
more rewards with the Hostess Rewards program,
then watch the rewards, bookings, and smiles stack
to the ceiling! ยช

Inspirations - A great start for the New Year

Starting January 1, Close To My Heart is introducing one of our new Spring/Summer paper kits.

Normally we have a completely new catalog in January. We're going to a 2 catalog a year program, instead of 3. The catalogs will run February-July and August-January, but to do that, CTMH has started with a special sneek peek catalog!

Here it is... WINGS!!

The colors for this paper pack... Black, Juniper, Sweet Leaf, Vineyard Berry.

There is a Workshop On The Go kit that includes the Wings Workshop stamp set, Wings Level 2 paper packet, the BLACK mini medley accents, one SPRAY PEN, and a workshop guide. You will get instructions to make a 2 pg layout and 6 cards!

The best part? If you buy the Wings Workshop On The Go kit in January, you get special pricing on the stamp sets in the Inpirations brochure, as well as a great deal on the January Stamp Of The Month!

Here's a pic of the Stamp of the Month...

Find Your Style is an absolutely gorgeous set! You won't want to miss it. It's only available January 1-31, 2011. The offer to get this free is a little different this month. Buy the Wings Workshop On The Go kit and mix and match the new products found throughout the pages of the brochure to earn the Find Your Style Stamp of the Month set at a discount or even for FREE!

Purchase Wings Workshop kit + 2 items, get 50% off!
Purchase Wings Workshop kit + 3 items, get 75% off!

Now... you may be saying that's more than what you usually have to buy, but it ISN'T. In the brochure, there are LOTS of new things to buy from your regular Level 1 and 2 papers and Stickease to Mini-Medley Accents and Pleated Ribbon to match the Wings colors. By purchasing the Workshop Kit, you also get discounts on all the stamp sets in the brochure! How crazy is that? Well, if you bought the kit (29.95) + Stickease (4.95) + Mini-Medley (4.95) + the pleated ribbon (4.95) + the Banner (5.95 - I'll tell you about this in a minute), that would total $50.75. Normally, you have to spend $100 or more to get the stamp set FREE.

And lastly, but not least... The My Creations Banner!

This is 8 chipboard pennants with jump rings. You can create your own banner for any occassion. If you purchase the Wings Workshop kit, you will have enough to make a beautiful banner with the leftover supplies! The instructions are included with the kit exclusively for the month of January ONLY.
