Dyeing Easter Eggs!!

Marking their eggs before we start

This year we tried regular food dye + vinegar + hot water.

Natey putting his Ns on everything

Maggie loves a good photo op!

Our family egg!!

Natey likes to take his time and get his eggs right. Maggie likes to go as fast as she can and then tries to "help" her brother!

The kids couldn't wait for Barry to get here to dye some eggs.

Natey's face says total bliss!

End result!

Don't pass out or anything....

but I am posting again for March!!! LOL!  Our new April Campaign starts April 1 and I wanted to share it with you.

When you sign up to be a consultant on my team in April, you will get the four Stamp of the Month stamp sets pictured above for FREE! Each set is valued at $17.95 so it's quite a deal! Here are the two choices of Consultant Kits that you might choose:

The Essentials Kit for $49

The Master Kit for $99
Our current Consultant Kits feature the CHANTILLY paper kit--which I love love LOVE! I liked it well enough in the Idea Book, then when I began creating with it for my club ladies this month, I fell in LOVE! It is GORGEOUS! I added lots of Twilight and then New England Ivy on another layout--so pretty! I know it looks super girlie in the pictures, and there's no doubt that it is perfect for girls, but if you add some of the darker colors or shades then it can be just as suitable for boys too. I plan on putting my Easter photos on Chantilly and can't wait to see how they come out!

Stamp sets on Ebay

Hello! Well, at least I made one more post before March ends, lol. Again, so sorry for not posting more often but life is just too busy at the moment.

CTMH updated our policies and we are now allowed to sell on internet auction sites such as Ebay and so I have listed my half-priced used stamp sets that I have in my inventory. These are all my personal stamp sets that I have finally decided to part with, so they are coming from a smoke-free home and were well taken care of.  Here is a link to one of the posts: Genuine Country. I don't want to list all of the sets here but I think if you go to one you can then find all the others.

If I get a good response, I will be offering more sets in the near future, including newer sets that I also have in my inventory. With my current schedule, I just can't get out to too many crops and these sets need to find good loving homes!! Hahah!

Thanks for checking it out! Happy Stamping! And Happy Easter and Happy Passover too!

CTMH Updates for March

Ok, so first off I am so sorry for not updating for most of February! It was an intense (in a good way) month and I just didn't get to do any blogging. So here's what is going on with Close to My Heart for March!!

March's Stamp of the Month: Floral Happiness! A WONDERFUL base-and-shade stamp set, the picture below uses this set to create those beautiful roses. As always, get it for $5 with a $50 order, or buy it outright for $17.95.

See those roses? That's done with the Stamp of the Month, Floral Happiness, using the base-and-shade technique.

This month is JUMP FOR JOY!! All hostesses with a $250+ gathering "jump up" in hostess rewards, taking your rewards to the next level! With a $250 party, your rewards will be $80 instead of $40!!

And finally, Club members this month will be making this sweet layout plus two more using the Chantilly paper pack! SO cute!
