"I'm too busy!"

Is this YOU?

Most women I meet are moms, and most are busy.  Very, very, VERY busy.  This kid here, that kid there, appointments to remember and games to watch and food to buy, cook, eat, and clean up after, laundry to do, work to do, on and on and on.

Most women, when I ask them if they would like to become a Close to My Heart consultant, say the same thing:  "I'd love to, and I think about it all the time, but I'm too busy right now. Maybe when things slow down."

Most women never get to slow down.  The schedule continues and increases and we are just built to hang on for dear life on this wild ride called Parenting.

Most women need a break.  Most women need time for themselves, and won't do it unless "forced" to.

What better way to "force" yourself to slow down than have your own scrapbooking business?  Get some friends together, scrapbook all those memories you're so busy making, and RELAX???  Your friends would be happy to shop with YOU, as opposed to going to the store one more time, and you will meet your (quite reasonable) sales quota.  

Time to slow down?  Who has time for that???  Instead, just give yourself permission to do THIS .

I love this layout!!

I love Love LOVE this layout from the Magic book!!  We just used this layout at the No Rules Scrapbooking Club but with the Wings paper pack, and it was just gorgeous too.  Those lighter blue pieces (the color is lagoon) have a template so they're super easy to cut out.  In the Magic book there is a DVD that contains the templates, and you can just print them out and trim up your pieces!  Easey peasey!

Here is the corporate version of the same layout as above, using the Wings paper.  It's the left page rotated 90 degrees...isn't it gorgeous?

Inspirations Begins TODAY!!

Happy New Year!!  As always, at the beginning of the month, a new Stamp of the Month goes live, and for this month only. so does our Mini Idea Book INSPIRATIONS!!  Because we are moving to a bi-annual catalog format, we needed something to bridge the gap between the old format to the new one.  That's INSPIRATIONS! 

I have plenty of these mini Idea Books on hand, so let me know if you'd like me to mail you one.  For this onth only, if you purchase the Wings Workshop on the Go (Wings is a new paper pack, and the worlshop on the go comes with a full pack, a new mister pen, a gorgeous stamp set, and new black mini medley accents) for $29.95, then all sorts of deals open up to you!  All the stamp sets in the mini book are discounted if you purchase the WOTG, and the Stamp of the Month is also easier to get for free!  Normally to get the SOTM for free, you need to order a minimum of $100.  For January only, if your purchase the Wings WOTG and FOUR OTHER PRODUCTS from the mini book, regardless of their prices, you will earn the SOTM for free!  So, you can purchase the Wings WOTG, a pack of Wings My Stickease, a black mini medley accents pack, the new My Creations Banner, and the A-sized set A Game for just $5.50 since you got the WOTG, and although your order total is far less than $100, you will earn the Find Your Style SOTM for FREE!!!  Really, such an awesome deal!!!

January Club features Wings too!!  Club this month is ONE WEEK EARLIER due to a crop conflict I had.  So to come to club this month and play with Wings and take advantage of all these deals, we're meeting on January 13th at 10 am and January 14th at 7 pm!!!
