Close to my Heart Planners- are you gonna plan in 2017.

 The Close To My Heart planner is available, you can choose the black/white stripe or Sea Glass binder, or just buy the pages to refill what ever you have.

What can we plan? There are no rules-
 work, vacation, classes,
or you can add art journal, notes, doodle,
or we can get really organized!
You can find them

 Everyone is busy getting ready for Christmas , but I really want some fall weather myself, maybe next week?
  Have a great day!

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!
