KAboom! It's already June

Can you believe we are halfway through the year? I have been really trying to "get it together" these days! Summer is here , for me that means traveling and my granddaughters, My two oldest live in Ohio and are each coming (separately) to spend a few weeks with us! My littlest lives up the driveway and spends the days with me when her mommy is at work!  I have been gathering craft supplies for some art projects to keep us busy!
  I am enjoying Close to My Heart, somehow it feels like a full circle for me , I started with CTMH before I jumped into the Scrapbooking world with Scrapin Kats! I am hoping to reconnect with some of my old friends and customers.
KABOOM is the stamp of month for June just in time for all your July cards and pages, remember it is only $5 with a qualifying order. My online Mystery Box Party can be found a ,  some lucky person will receive a mystery box from me at the end of June.

As a special for any customer placing a $25 order from me in June, I will be mailing the New Yearly Catalogs when we receive them the end of June. Close to My Heart is going to a yearly catalog, I am so excited to see all the new products! 
I am off to visit my parents and pick up granddaughter number 2, she is so excited this will be her first plane ride! We are excited to spend a few weeks together, that is the best thing about grandchildren , we get to spoil them and send them home?
Have a great week!
