Finding Balance...

Back from my little hiatus :)  Sometimes its hard to find balance with the demands of home, family, work, end of school, jury duty and summer camps...I certainly don't have the answer to that one.  I often feel like my van just goes and finding downtime is a thing of the past.  I know we all have those season's where we put us on the back burner and just go, go, go...then things magically settle down and its time to focus on what we love and as you know for me that is stamping and creating!  I have really missed it!!!  Other than my birthday card workshop in early June, I just haven't had a chance to enjoy my ART.  As soon as I get my stamp studio back in order I'll post pictures of those cards.  In the meantime, I wanted to let you know about the July special and remind you that this is the last month for our current catalog...Yep, a new idea book is being released August excited.

July Stamp of the Month....a very versatile set of 68 stamps titled "Circus Alphabet" I have been patiently waiting for this moth's special. 
Such cute artwork with this one!  Remember with all SOTM, only $5 with a $50 qualifying order.  Would love you to visit my online shop and place an order this month!

And here's a peek at the new Idea Book Cover. 
One big change is we are moving to a yearly Idea Book with 2 supplements.  And wait until I share all the stamping goodies with you...there are so many.  I am HAPPY Close To My Heart is offering a wider selection of products for us stampers!  Oh and yes there will be a new Cricut Collection :)

Happy Creating!
