Hope for Japan!

One more reason I feel so  proud to be a consultant for Close to my Heart.  Jeanette Lynton, our founder and CEO posted  the statement below today on her blog.   The money earned from these beautiful CTMH stamps  will be donated to the Red Cross.   They are beautiful!  I love them, don't you?  Thank you Jeanette, not only for your big heart and generosity, but for helping us all to feel like we are doing something to contribute.

We've all been reeling with the images of tragedy and devastation in Japan. If you're looking for an easy, real, practical way to help relief efforts, then I invite you to contact your Close To My Heart Consultant!

Typically, our A-sized sets retail for $7.95/$8.95 CAN, but the "Hope for Japan" set will be available through April 30 for just $5--and Close To My Heart will be donating 100% of the profits to the American Red Cross to benefit relief efforts in Japan.

If we all do a little, together we can do a lot. Let's show our support and together, provide real HOPE for Japan!

First Day of Spring!

Imagine the excitement at our house.    These are little sprouts from seeds we planted just last week after coming home from a birthday party.  Logan received a little packet of seeds in her goody bag.   They are in our kitchen window and we anxiously check their progress every morning before school.  Welcome Spring!

Here they come!!!!   Who Hooooo!!!  Come on Spring!

Mom, this is for you.  Thank you for sharing your love of nature and the joy and wonder that would unfold as you walked around the yard in the morning with your coffee.....showing me the progress each day..the persistence and beauty in our own backyard.   I am so grateful.   We love you.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Brandon is so excited to share his creation.   This is what he made during our Snow Day Creating time while we were working on Valentine's.  He came up with this completely on his own.  I love it...Don't you?   We hope you have  a Happy St Patrick's Day.

It's Hot outside!

Ok....I couldn't believe my ears when I heard that come out of my own mouth today!   "It's Hot outside".....and it's only 45 degree's here.  You see....I am a southern girl....and  I am partial to the warm , sunny climate of the south.  My first winter here.......I nearly froze to death.  Today,  I just had to laugh to myself and share.   Nope, it's still not shorts weather for me.......but maybe for some.  One of the things I do love about living up here is the total anticipation and excitement you can feel all around you this time of year cause we are all hungry for warmth and sunshine.  Spring......just around the corner.  Who Hoo!!!

Adorable CTMH Bunnies!

Don't these sweet little bunnies just make your heart melt?    I love all the attention to detail, the whiskers and soft fur, the twinkle in the eye of mischief.   Just seeing the basket with eggs makes me feel so very excited that Spring is just around the corner, and that soon, the bright green tender shoots of new foliage will be working their way to the surface.
