February 2010

Dear Blog Guest,

Welcome to the February edition of my monthly newsletter! There are lots of fun things in store this month from Close To My Heart.

This month's featured campaign has a dual purpose. You get a special deal on our fabulous textured cardstock, while helping those less fortunate in Haiti after their devastating earthquake. Check out the details for the Hearts for Haiti campaign.

Of course, we get a new Stamp of the Month as well, Piece of Cake. This is a fun set of cakes and cupcakes - perfect for just about every celebration!

There's a few area crops happening in February and March. I've listed some of the details. If you're needing some serious dedicated cropping time, be sure to check them out. Unfornately, I cannot attend all of them due to my work schedule, but I will be at the Crop for the Cure.

I've got my class/workshop schedule posted for February and March on my calendar. If you cannot attend one of my scheduled workshops, you are always welcome to schedule your own workshop on one of my open dates and I will come to you.

Special thanks to all those who voiced their opinions and took my customer survey last month. I greatly appreciate the feedback and look forward to continuing to serve you as your Close To My Heart Consultant.

Hearts for Haiti

From February 1-28, 2010, our textured cardstock combo packs are buy one, get one FREE-and with every offer purchased, Close To My Heart will donate $2 US to Operation Smile's Haiti relief efforts.

Operation Smile is always a fantastic charitable partner-offering free facial reconstruction surgeries to needy children throughout the world. They've currently marshaled their medical teams and resources to provide emergency relief in Haiti, and the donations given as part of Hearts for Haiti will be used exclusively for Operation Smile's efforts in Haiti. For more information on their on-the-ground response, you can visit www.operationsmile.org/haiti.
