Close to My Heart Fall 2015 Classes

It's September and Close to My Heart has
 released two beautiful new Idea Books:

 Its been a long while since I've posted on my Blog.  What happened?  I went back to work, but after a year working retail, I knew I was ignoring my passion (sharing and teaching with Close to My Heart).  So I decided to quit my job and take the Summer off with my boys (now 17, 15, & 6).  I was also lucky enough to attend my first ever (in 8 years as a consultant) Close to My Heart Annual Convention!  This is where it really sunk in that I wanted to be doing more with CTMH.  I wanted a space where I could teach classes, outside of my home and be creative. 

It all came together when I was offered a space not far from home, at an affordable price.  So, I will now be able to offer weekly classes, open crop evenings, occasional Day Crops and more.

As you may know, I have been very lucky to be on the planning team for BC Crop for Kids.  This year is no different.  The 2015 BC Crop for Kids is Oct. 2-4th in Abbotsford.  Please click the link to check it out.  You can view the classes, sign up for the crop and/or classes.  You are also welcome to just come shop the vendors!  BC Crop for kids raises money for BC Children's Hospital.
My weekly classes in South Surrey will begin the first week of October and we will be featuring three new patterns this month: Zoe, Sangria and Nevermore.

Classes are $30 each, seating must be reserved 14 days in advance, Payment will reserve your seat, space is limited to 10 per class.  With the exception of the kids class, you will receive 1 whole paper pack in your kit, so you will have extra paper to play with on your own.  I will use a variety of exclusive CTMH stamps,embellishments and CTMH cricut cartridges for each class as well.

All classes will be held in the Club House at 16275 15th Ave in South Surrey.

Thanks, and I'm happy to be back crafting with you all!
