FEBRUARY 2017 CTMH Workshops & Specials


Hello Friends~

Happy FEBRUARY!!!  Can't believe we are already a full week into February.  Unfortunately, I've been under the weather as we begin the new month.  Our bodies have a way of making us slow down and get the rest we need whether we want to or not.  I've been around so many people, co-workers, and patients who have one bug or another, and it eventually caught up to me.  It completely zapped my energy, not to mention any creativity I had in me...I would have loved to have 4 solid days creating artwork!  I'm on the mend now, energy is back, and I'm getting back in the groove of things.

I closed out January with a full house All Day Crop, thanks to everyone who participated and joined the fun!  I wish 12 hours of creative time didn't go by so fast!  We officially broke in the new bar area with lunch, dinner and of course happy hour! Hoping to have many more of these events in 2017.
 



Interested in knowing when your favorite papers from SE1 will be coming in the months ahead?  February is Sugar Rush, March will be Dreamin' Big, April will be Hello Lovely, and May will be Some Kinda Wonderful.  A few other events, such as Card Buffets are in the works too!

Feel free to share this blog post with your friends who LOVE to stamp, scrapbook and paper-craft.  I always appreciate your referrals...and I'm happy to reward YOU too!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued friendship and support...I do appreciate YOU!

JANUARY 2017 CTMH Workshops & Specials




Hello Friends~

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I'm so excited to share with you some of the fabulous new products coming to you in early 2017 with the NEW Seasonal Expressions 1 (SE1).  The SE1 is currently live through April 2017.  I'm making my rounds getting these 'paper gems' into your hands, so if you haven't already viewed the contents online, here's the link to view SE1 online.  
 
If you LOVE the artwork on the cover, I can't wait for you to see inside!  The cover uses a new stamp set called Hello Lovely-Scrapbooking (D1713) found within the pages of SE1.

Over the holiday's, I decided to accomplish another daunting task - I emptied out all the boxes that were being stored in the trailer in the backyard during construction of the basement, back into my studio - needless to say, I was buried in boxes (I didn't want a picture of that, it stressed me out)!  I thought maybe the producers of "Hoarders" would find me! I've been purging and organizing for nearly 2 weeks. Ken is happy to have his trailer back.

Feel free to share this blog link with your friends who LOVE to stamp, scrapbook and paper-craft.  I always appreciate your referrals...and I'm happy to reward YOU too!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued friendship and support...I do appreciate YOU! 

Helping you preserve the memories that matter most~

DECEMBER 2016 CTMH Workshops & Specials



Hello Friends~
This new format for my monthly newsletters seems to be working well with everyone - I appreciate all of your feedback!  Thank you!

As we close out November, it seemed I blinked and it was gone! It was a busy month for me, as I'm sure, no exception for you.  These months before the holidays are often challenging, trying to fit everything you need to do, and everything you want to do into your schedule.  I've been scheduling additional hygiene shifts at work in November and again in December, as we search for another team member.  I should be back to my "normal" routine in January, fingers crossed!

I do hope you'll be able to make some time to join me for a workshop in December.  If my dates don't work for you, I will be hosting my All Day Crops again in 2017, so purchase your workshop supplies now and complete the projects at a crop.  As a friendly reminder, the products in the Holiday Expressions catalog will be retiring at the end of December, and products now are available while supplies last.  Thumb through, one more time...make sure you have what your heart desires...if not, I advise to shop sooner than later.

I'm flying out to Boise for the weekend, for CTMH's Seasonal Expressions 1 Launch for consultants.  I'm looking forward to a weekend of PLAY (with new products!) after all these extra days of WORK.  Ken and I decided with all the work we've been doing this year on the basement, the extra miles he's driven this year, and the extra shifts I've taken on...we need more time for play.  Unfortunately, he's staying home with the animals, its a vacation for him too!

Feel free to share this blog link with your friends who LOVE to stamp, scrapbook and paper-craft!  I always appreciate your referrals...and I'm happy to reward YOU too!!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued friendships and support...I do appreciate YOU!!!

Helping you preserve the memories that matter most,
Julie

NOVEMBER 2016 CTMH Workshops & Specials


Hello Everyone!
I'm trying a new format for my monthly newsletters, my apologies to those who haven't received my newsletters for the last couple of months.  I have been sending out monthly newsletters, and for some reason, several of you were receiving multiple emails and some received none at all.  Mastering communication through technology isn't my strong suit.  Please realize, I am always available to keep you up to date on monthly specials, workshops, and anything else CTMH, please contact me if in doubt.

For those of you new to my blog, feel free to browse around.  You'll find a Stamp of the Month tab, a Monthly Specials tab, and a Join My Team tab across the menu bar on the home page.  It is my goal to keep these up to date.  You'll notice, it's been over 2 years since I've posted anything on my blog (sadly, I had to put it on the back burner, not enough time in the day!)...I hope you find this an easier way to stay connected!!!

A few quick honorable mentions - Love our Thin Cuts?  Then you're going to LOVE this news...we now have more Thin Cuts available to purchase!  The following thin cuts are not listed in the Annual Inspirations Idea Book:


ALL colors of the newly designed magnetic stamp pads are now available to order!   View my EZ Shopping Link








Workspace Wonder organization system is NOW AVAILABLE to order!  The first shipment is expected to sell out quickly, however, additional product will be arriving soon.
