10 is a BIG Deal!

10 years come and past- how can that be true??  Today was my daugther's 10th birthday- holy cow is all I can say.  It just cannot be!  First of all- I cannot be getting older(can't we just freeze time for everyone's sake????)  Second of all- I just cannot fathom it.  But it is the truth and it has been a beautiful, joyous journey with her- what a special treasure she is!!!  As I sit here reflecting on it I realize I am so thankful I scrapbook and we can look back on those memories together.  Life for us is really about all the small, special moments and trying to slow things down a bit.  We did that today with a fun family day and canoe ride threw the Tompsin Basin Watershed- so fun! 

But also as I reflect on the number 10 and how much I have to be thankful for and how Close To My Heart has enriched my life so much I thought it would be fun to revisit my Top 10 List of Why I LOVE MY FUN JOB!!!!!!  and I have a feeling you will love these reasons too and I would love to share this opportunity with you!

#10. I get a discount everytime I shop!
~never pay full price ☺

#9. Low Quarterly Minimums-
~only $300 in retail sales(get a discount off of that) compared to $500 from our competitors.

#8. Freedom to be ME!!!
~Work the hours I want, create what I want, share when I want and no Pressure ( only what I put on myself tee-hee!).

#7. Fabulous Art Inspiration
~Being a CTMH consultant has opened great doors to me Artistically and I love our Corporate Bulletin Boards where fellow CTMH consultants share their artwork and fab creations. I am never in a dry spell! We truly are the let me show you how company! ☺

#6. I get paid to PLAY!!!!
~I love scrapbooking, making cards, and paper crafts! It is so fun to share this with other and earn a paycheck at the same time! Woo-Hoo! I GET TO WORK FROM HOME AND BE THERE FOR MY KIDDOS!

#5. No Boundaries-
~my job moves with me! ☺ When I move I don’t have to worry about looking for a new place to work and going through that process over and over. I just take it with me wherever I go and I work with my team from whatever state I live in!

#4. Incredible Training
~Just want to be a hobbyist that is okay but ready to take the steps in working this as a business??? -CTMH has an incredible training academy that will give you the tools you need to succeed! PLUS I work with my team members making sure you achieve what you desire!

~This is a HUGE blessing in my life with the amount I move and have to reconnect. I have a great group of CTMH sisters and my amazing team- LOVE IT!

#1. Seriously this is the best decision I have made!
~After almost 5 years I am more in love with Close to My Heart and keep finding myself asking- how did they do it again??? They just keep getting better and better!  AND JUST WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE THE NEW IDEA BOOK!!!!!

  1. hi there! remember me????

    LOOOONG time no see!!

    i have missed you and our fun! I made 8 or so Thank-You cards sunday night on a whim with your yummy paper and it got me thinking of how much I enjoy crafting WITH people.

    I wondered if you might be willing to do a little card-making party with me and some friends in September. Like, a Level 1 paper-pack card set. Or level 2. How many great cards can we get out of that?

    What would the cost be per person?

    Really, no self-interest here for me. Except that I am plum out of hand-made cards and I would love to sit with my friends and make some! You included!

    I am not sure yet if I am thinking of doing this at my house here, in a room at our church, or at your place (with all your goodies at hand).

    It would be on a mon, wed, or friday morning. Like a "let's celebrate back-to-school" event!

    Looks like you had a total blast at Convention. Its cool that Kara flew back and got that award!

    let's keep in touch!
