I'm back!

I soooooo meant to blog a lot while I was traveling (and California, then Dallas, then California again, then Washington) but I've just struggled getting WIFI and so I had to let it go. I have so much fun stuff to share! If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, you saw my endless stream of quick pics and tidbits I was constantly posting via Instagram. This is my team of fabulous ladies in Dallas, wearing our Lagoon colored rhinestone Stamp Rules team shirts. Two of my first time attendees even found Sticky Boys - a CTMH tradition where small to large Sticky Boy stamp images are hidden around the convention venue for lucky consultants to find! This year they dressed him up in a cowboy hat and sheriff's badge. We just had a such a galloping good time together! 
There are a lot of changes coming down the pike - new colors, lots of retired colors (from 60 down to 42!), new inexpensive/disposable Alcohol Markers and pigment ink pads, gobs of new Workshops on the go Kits, No more Studio J memberships (!), many fabulous new papers and accessories...and a new CTMH Exclusive Cricut Cartridge called Artiste!  Over the next few weeks I'll be participating in a number of  blog hops to help you to see a wide range of new product goodness. And did I mention they gave us a SWEET new damask bag? But the swag wasn't my favorite part of Convention this year...
Don't get me wrong - I love swag, and new product makes me literally jump up and down...with cowbells! I am in creative overload right now with all the new choices we have, all the fabulous artwork we saw, all the BLING! But my favorite part of convention was getting to hang with my team, bonding, giggling, and even impromptu cropping in our PJs in the Hilton Atrium...those moments were priceless, worth more to me than all the 50% off bundles of new goodies! 
But back to the swag... This is the bag they gave us with our new catalog stowed safely inside at the first general session!  Then at the last crop they gave us an adorable little matching pouch. I used it as my carry on/laptop bag to get it home and have taken it from California to Seattle and back to my beloved PDX- it's as sturdy and functional as it is beautiful!! 

For the first time EVER Close To My Heart is offering the chance to score the Convention SWAG bag for free WHILE SUPPLIES LAST to lucky gals who join CTMH in August. The bag is a $50 retail value,and the new Consultant kits start at just $49 - such a steal! Next year we are going to DISNEYWORLD for convention at the Coronado Springs. I cannot wait to get another week of girl time with my team in what is sure to be an amazingly wonderful resort. I kept calling convention the happiest time of the year...why don't you join us next year and experience the magic for yourself!
