My Happy Place

Every year I take a trip to the Close to My Heart convention.  I spend that time relaxing a bit, connecting with friends I have met through the years and then filling my creative soul with inspiration. 

This year I am heading to Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas, chosen specifically for this conference! 




Over the 16 years as a consultant, I have met many wonderful people who I look forward to reconnecting with during these times.  They have become friends that are family and we have shared many stories of adventure, travel, and offer one another encouragement and support in all the ways.


This is a great opportunity to connect and learn with my team.  They have been on this journey with me for many years and I appreciate the talent and gifts that each offer!  (And some are already there getting some play time in before the conference begins. 




I am so fortunate to work with a company that provides these opportunities of enrichment!  I will come home with my bucket filled and ideas overflowing, ready to share with you!

And...


looking forward to a little time by the pool today! 

Can't wait to share when I return. 

Michele.

Fresh Air

Just a breath of Fresh Air brings so much to my craft table!  I am in love with this paper and all the creativity it brings.  My artwork and classes for July will feature all things Fresh Air!

The simplicity of this stamp set with ombre stamping technique makes for a perfect sentiment to share with a special friend. 

This sweet little Koala fits right in to the mix of Fresh Air paper and oh doesn't his face make you smile? 

Time together for a family hike was just what we needed this spring.  And, this gem of a trail to a waterfall is so close to home.  How didn't I know about it before?





The embellishments and titles for the scrapbook workshop fit right in with the memories we share in the great outdoors. 

You can see the entire Fresh Air Collection here on my website. 

Contact me for details about my upcoming classes and kits to go using this paper collection. 

Enjoy yourself some Fresh Air.

Welcome June, Rainbows, Apples and so much more!

I missed my Monday post.  I guess that was because it was Memorial Day weekend.  Hope you enjoyed a long weekend with friends and family. 

Now it is June and Close to My Heart has a new set of specials and stamp sets that might just hit your creative button! 

A Bushel & a Peck
 June stamp of the month


Pull out your Shin Han markers.  I was happy to pull out my markers and color again.  I find that my creativity and use of techniques can be sparked in one direction or another by a simple stamp set.  


And isn't this girl adorable?  I love that she is wearing a scarf and boots.  I feel some winter inspiration coming on!  This stamp set is available only during the month of June and with a qualifying purchase, you pay $5!  Shop on my website for all Close to My Heart products including the stamp of the month.  To see more artwork using this stamp set, you can follow my Facebook Business page, join my VIP Evergreen Memories group, follow EvergreenMemories on Instagram and take trip through this blog hop.  So much inspiration ahead!
