Gadgets & Gizmos

I'm back from the Close To My Heart convention in Anaheim and so excited about all that's new!  Actually, I've been back nearly a week but my head is still spinning & twirling with all the ideas and new products, I feel like I may still be in one of Alice's Magic Tea Cups!

Alyssa, Mickey & Me
Anaheim of course, is home to Disneyland so our very first order of business was stopping in and saying hello to Mickey.  I credit him for the awesome warm days and cool evenings and so much fun we almost didn't want to stop for convention.  But we didn't lose our heads completely!

Me & Sticky Boy!
One of the highlights for me was finally finding a Sticky Boy!  He's the prototype of our My Acrylix stamps and has attended every convention since we introduced My Acrylix. Every consultant wants to find him and there are many clones of him to be discovered.  But having attended many conventions this is the first time I got so lucky.

Hangin' out with Sticky Boy

Right now he's hanging out on my window over my kitchen table and watching me as I've been catching up on convention create and takes.

Art Philosophy.  Just of few ideas of so many more!

Have you heard our big news?  I mean REALLY BIG news?  Close To My Heart now has an exclusive Cricut cartridge, Art Philosophy!  I am so excited!!  It has over 700 images including a font, shapes that fits some of our new stamps, 3-dimensional flowers & projects and so much more!  It comes with three exclusive 'D' size Close To My Heart stamp sets and three 9x12 sheets of Dimensional Elements, that all coordinate.  Awesome!!

And now that I have swapped all my swap cards I'll give you a peek at what I swapped.  Many thanks to Alyssa and Mary Jane for being part of my production line.
