March Newsletter: Dare To Dream, March Madness, and More!

Dear Blog Guest,


Welcome to the March edition of my monthly newsletter! I realize my newsletter is a little later this month than normal. However, I was purposely waiting until after the Crop for the Cure events so I could give you an update.

Close To My Heart has great promotion for us this month! If you've ever thought about becoming a Consultant, NOW is the time to do so! You'll get almost $400 in products in your new consultant kit for only $99! Be sure to check out the details below.

Of course, we have a new Stamp of the Month as well, A Little Everything. You'll never be at a loss for words while you're creating cards or scrapbook pages! Be sure to check it out!

I've got my class/workshop schedule posted for the remainder of March and April 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.

Crop for the Cure

I had a FABULOUS time at both crops this year! It's always so much fun coming down for the day and spending it with great people. If you went, I hope you enjoyed yourself as well! Perhaps you got something accomplished too - even if it was just visiting with friends. Thanks to everyone who stopped by my Close To My Heart booth to visit with us. It was great to see some old friends as well as make new ones.

Congratulations to Alissa S. and Chanel U. who were the winners of my door prizes! I hope you enjoy your Felicity Kits.

Special thanks to Lea L. and Sherryl C. for spending the day with me at each event and helping me out. Special thanks also to Margaret L. for helping with the goody bags and make and take preparations. I could not have done this without them.

If you attended either of the crops, you might have noticed that I donate 10% of my sales back to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Thanks to those of you that attended and shopped, I was able to donate $72.56! That's almost 50% over last year's donation!
