CTMH Banquet!

Sorry for the stop and start of these postings, and that I have the events all of out of order. You know us working Moms, we have to squeeze things in where and when we can. So this is a quick post. This is Casey with Mandy, my WONDERFUL roommate and this is me with Casey, my WONDERFUL upline. These were taken on Saturday night. As you can see, I was so excited to get to the banquet, I left an earring out of one ear, LOL. Have you ever done that?? Went all evening and never knew it...
And lastly, came the bittersweet goodbyes and business card exchanges.
So bittersweet...til next Anaheim California at Disnelyand, July 2011!!

I'm Home Margaret!

It was wonderful to get home!
This is Amanda and Michael waiting for us to arrive. And this is me and my daughter, reuniting at the Shuttle Service location. Except for 2 Sunday mornings, we have been apart for 3 weeks - way to long!! (Due to my convention and her two weeks of bible camp -- no more back-to-back trips for either of us!)
And here is Mandy and Drew reuniting! That was the sweetest, "Mama" I ever heard, right before he ran right into her arms -- how sweet.
We had a wonderful time, but these two Mamas sure missed their babies.
This is me eating my last breakfast in DC. NO, that is not Oreo' don't eat Oreo's for breakfast.
More to come, since between Mandy and I we took HUNDREDS of photos and video!

More CTMH Convention 2010 News

This is the Gaylord Hotel in DC where we had our 2010 Convention, isn't it beautiful!
Here is the Hearts In Harmony team that attended convention this year. What a great bunch of creative gals!
And here is an indoor shot of the atrium across from the main lobby. How perfect is this?
I am excited to share more...stay tuned! Peachy Heart hugs, Debbie

It was like Christmas in July!

I received my Convention Bundles on Monday. WOW! I received 24 stamp sets, 3 of the new Paper Kits, both Level 1 and Level 2 kits, including the matching Stickease, the new Embellishments from the new Idea book, THREE new albums, Clear Cards, Circle Cards and lots of other great new stuff.
Let me tell you about my favorite…Jeanette unveiled another new “How to Book”, this one on Scrapbooking, entitled, “Magic”. I previewed artwork created by the sketches and techniques in this book while at convention. This book and the techniques in it are FABULOUS! In “Magic” you will learn how to create interactive pages, HOW COOL IS THAT!! The book comes with a CD containing downloadable templates. Come to my Open House and get a sneak peak or read my recent email entitled “Magic”, if you are one of my regular customers.
This new book will be available on 1 September when our Autumn/Winter Idea Book is released.
Happy scrapping! Peachy Heart hugs, Debbie
I'm back home, whew! Too much news to share, my brain is on overload. Washington, DC was absolutely incredible, from the fun of meeting and reuniting with CTMH sisters, to sight-seeing with Mandy, to Scattered Hearts and Hearts in Harmony Team events, to LOOKING FOR Sticky Boy, but not finding him, this year’s Close To My Heart Convention was Fabulous Fun. We heard about new products, enhanced programs, new incentive trip – CRUISE to Hawaii!! Yippie! I have so much to share and to top it off, our Convention in 2011 will be held at Disneyland! Can you believe it?? I have emailed bits of information each day since my return. If you would like to be added to my email distro list, to be sure you get all the news, please post a comment or email me. If you would like to learn more about the CTMH opportunity, I would LOVE to have you join my team. For information about joining my team, you can get some general information at my MYCTMH website ( or email me at First, let me get some easy things posted quickly…such as information about Anita Renfroe. Wow! This is our second time to have her entertain us at convention and she is so talented. Everyone laughed. It was fabulous!! I had spotted my current favorite performance, “The Wrinkly Ladies” on a YouTube link about two weeks before convention, and I LOVED it. I was thrilled that Anita performed it as her final song. Here it is for your enjoyment. Here is the link: She has lots of YouTubes. You will love them. I cannot wait to take my sisters and friends and have a girl trip to see her. Enjoy the clip!

This artwork is made using one of CTMH's newest paper kits, Zippidee. Don't they just "scream" summertime and county/state fairs and amuzement parks? I love these papers. I hope you do too. If you create a LO or card with them, share with me. I have a Zippidee stickesease for the first contributor who emails me a picture of their creation. Happy scrapping!
Enjoy your holiday weekend.
