Found in the Mail

Look at the cute card Karen Pedersen sent to me.  It made me smile so I had to share.  Thanks Karen!

What Am I doing these days you ask........

I have become a Girl Scout Leader, Troop Cookie Manager, All around -crazy- having too much Fun mom.  Really, anybody want some?  I will gladly share.  Tonight was our Valentine Party at Girl Scouts we had Chocolate covered Strawberries, the girls made Flower bouqets with suckers and we played Jingo.  We had a blast.  Good thing you can never be too old to be a Girl Scout.

My darling niece lived with us for a while, she was so photogenic.

Hearts for Haiti

Hearts for Haiti

Our hearts go out to the victims of the earthquake in Haiti, and like so many of you, we’re eager to help. We’re excited to announce Close To My Heart’s February Constant Campaign, Hearts for Haiti—where customers can get a great deal while doing great good for those affected by the devastation in Haiti.
From February 1-28, 2010, our 12” x 12” textured cardstock combo packs are buy one, get one FREE—and with every offer purchased, Close To My Heart will donate $2 US to Operation Smile’s Haiti relief efforts.
Operation Smile is always a fantastic charitable partner—offering free facial reconstruction surgeries to needy children throughout the world. They’ve currently marshaled their medical teams and resources to provide emergency relief in Haiti, and the donations given as part of Hearts for Haiti will be used exclusively for Operation Smile’s efforts in Haiti. For more information on their on-the-ground response, you can visit
