Get organized: one great studio!

Have you visited Jeanette Lynton's blog lately? If not, you really should take some time to catch up and see her beautiful home studio. Here is where she creates and has fun like the rest of us...only with a few more products  LOL! Take time to get a few ideas on how to organize your own space.
In the next few weeks I will post another "Get Organized" spot about my Stamp Index and how it has been a BIG help to my stamping and scraping. A book anyone can create to meet their own organizing needs. But first; be sure to check out Jeanette Lynton's blog.

New; Live Tomorrow!!

Are you ready for the new Spring/Summer Close To My Heart Idea/Catalog? It will go live tomorrow! You will be able to order all the latest products in the paper crafting world, from Canvas Art Kits to My Reflection patterned Fabric! All while still being able to get all your favorite CTMH products.

Never Land 5K and Tinker Bell run!

 I walked my first Disney 5K last Saturday! Wake up at 4 am, walk into Disneyland Main Street at 5 am, take off with 4,998 other people at 5:45 am! FUN!!!

You get to walk through the back lots, they even pull out some fun stuff for you to see and take pictures with. Split times are not an issue here  LOL!
This is one of my favorite photos of the week end! 

The next day Sara ran in the Tinker Bell half marathon. She started about 5:05 am! I went to a few different places on her course to cheer her on! Here she stopped for a quick photo.    
We had a wonderful weekend!
