The train is coming ...
What a great picture I took standing in the middle of the Tennessee River!
My daughter convinced me I needed a boat ride?
1. I fear bridges...
2. I don't do water... occasionally a dip in a cement pool
It was fun... scary to start, nice cool day and then... we have to float under the interstate and the train!
Let's break her feat?

The planners for Close To My Heart for 2017 have been released on our websites
Let me know if. I can help you!

Thanks for stopping by!

Where's Kathy been?

I've been everywhere!
Alabama to Chicago to Gurnee, Il to Minneapolis to Thief River Falls, Mn to Wisconsin and back to Home Sweet Home Alabama...

  We did the fun walk for Mane In Heaven Therapy horses... only the 1k  but at least we showed up!
   We took my mom to Clearbrook, Mn,to see where she came from, way up north , stopped to see the cemetery where her dad was buried, she had never been back in 50 years.

 We had a balloon release for my dad on October 2, its been a year and I really miss him.
 We went apple picking in Wisconsin with are granddaughters at Apple Holler in the rain, so new shoes for all when we got done, but hey we are making memories they will never forget!

I am back home, doing some scrapbooking and card classes.
I am back with Close to My Heart, hoping to get some classes going near me again!

I am going to try to post my projects this week for my classes in November, so stop by and take a look.

See you soon,

Hello Heather

Hello everyone!
 Yes its been awhile since I have posted... Yesterday I had lunch with a couple of my Scrapin Kats friends at our favorite Mexican restaurant Los Cablos, it is in the parking lot where my store used to be , we had a great time , caught up on scrappy news, our lonely blogs and all promised to blog, and get together soon and craft something?

And then I see this post from my past customer Heather Adams! Talk about a "proud crafty mom" moment! I am so excited to see how far she has come since she was shopping with me! She was just barely able to drive a few years ago! I used to love when the younger girls would come to shop at my store!
 At the time Local Scrapbook stores were dropping like fly's! Surely to be a lost art? No way I would think it just changes and this is proof... it changes and circles back ? 
There are no rules in scrapbooking and its only paper ...  yes its changed I see a focus on easy , simpler, things like project life , people back to journaling , using planners as a scrapbook to tell a story, heck we are even coloring! Emma my eight year granddaughter told me after school "lets color" and we do ... who would ever thing a 54 year old grams would be sitting on her bed coloring? 

I wish Heather the best in her future and hope to see more designs in the future!    

So please stop by and see Heather's new paper line "Hello Heather"

She has a Giveaway on her instagram
enter to win and tell her Scrapinkat sent you!

So Sheila and Carolyn I have blogged ... next step go find those bunny stamps , Easter is early this year! I will Not buy premade cards this year... so far that is the only New Years Resolution I have kept? 
Have a great day! 
Thanks for continuing to read my lonely blog!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!
I am happy to say that I successfully scrapped all of December Daily , a trip to Chicago , Beautiful musical and and State Street , a trip to Nashville and the Grand Ole Opry, decorating for Christmas, lots of selfie love, and even a Christmas Day flood!
I printed all my layouts from August - Dec 31 , including  my December Daily with the PL app!
My grands and my daughter even enjoyed flipping through a finished album!

Lucky it was 70 degrees and we had some extra man -power to help clean up!
  So not many resolutions this year!
Hoping to get crafty and enjoy some retreats with old friends, catch up and get organized!
As I think about our friendship and how happy it has made me, I want to wish you happiness in the year to come.

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh My!It's December Already?

It's December already!
 Time to deck the halls and lets be jolly? This day 2 and I am keeping up with December...
 I had such great plans last year with project life, I did manage to order 49 layouts on Monday from the past few months so I feel sucessful? I keep thinking about all that stuff I have and have not made it up stairs yet to scrapbook? There is always next year?
But it does come in handy for school projects?
Anyways I am going to try my best to do December daily and tell the story , hopefully we can have some happy memories to share.

 Sometimes that is hard to do?
  And then I remember some times its better to give a hand up and keep going? It was extremely hard year for us and I have a sweet memory of my dad he always helped someone along the way our whole life, Christmas as kids  we were not rich , but he always found someone worse than us and did something nice for them especially kids,so that my plan. I did decide I need a new CD because Christmas music and the Hallmark Card section just not happening this year .

So tell the story and print it , who needs perfect , just get them in some books to share with the grands this season, I think they much rather pass the albums then sit in the front of my computer to see them.

  I'll be back soon and hopefully share some of my December with you, my planner is filling up ( its plain )I never managed to get on board that decorating it yet.
We all know its Shopping, Baking, and wrapping ....  I did not buy the sign  but a perfect photo opp with my granddaughter, our yearly ornament trip , my first time to Hobby lobby since May?
  I am cured? of the weekly I have to buy it , oh I have a coupon?

Thanks for stopping by,
