Dear Blog Reader,

I hope you had a good 4th! We didn't do anything special this year. Carl and the boys did set off some fireworks here at home. I think they like that better than going to see them. I think I'm adjusting to my new work schedule. It does not help that we are going through a major contract change for transportation. It's been a little hectic and stressful this past week. I'm hoping for a better week this week.

Close To My Heart is sponsoring a recruiting bonus for all new consultants that sign during July. In addition to the already awesome Consultant Kit for only $99 (valued at approx. $300), new consultants get to choose their favorite five products from a select list - up to an additional $98.75 - absolutely FREE! CTMH is even picking up the shipping/tax on the additional products! If you've ever thought about joining CTMH, even just as a hobbyist, now is a great time to do that! You can view an FAQ on becoming a Consultant on My Art page.

There's also a new Stamp of the Month - You've Got Flair. As always - there are lots of options and uses for this stamp set.

Don't forget my new Monthly Contest. I only had 4 winners last month. Be sure to check out this month's contest for a chance to win a free prize!

I have updated my July calendar and hope to get my August calendar done this week. Check out my workshops and events or schedule your own workshop or gathering.

A new feature to my newsletter program is a clickable link to view this email in the html or "pretty" version. If you aren't seeing all the images and formatting, check the top of this email for the link. The webpage version of this email will be good until I send the next newsletter - approximately 30 days.

I must apologize as I know you have not yet received your prize. I believe I will see most of you this week and will give you your prize when I do.

This month's question...

Close To My Heart offers how many Exclusive Colors of cardstock, inks, and markers?

Remember most answers can be found in the Idea Book. The first 5 people to email me with the correct answer will receive a small prize. Be sure to include your current mailing address.
