Pinwheels Spinning Wheels


I have the Blood,Sweat, & Tears song stuck in my head 'spinning wheels got to go round'.... Hence the title of my post. This was part of our Choir recital when I was in 7th grade.   That was a long time ago.

Pinwheel Mania!

Welcome to the Close to My Heart Consultant Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!
Wow that's a whole lot of words, but to simplify matters we use acronyms.
This month our featured stamp set is simply and aptly named Pinwheel. 


This set works with our Cricut Artiste Collection, so it's doubly nice, but you do not need Cricut to have fun with this set.This set is yours for $5 with a $50 purchase and this month we have a fun and trendy Constant Campaign for National Scrapbooking Month called Dream Pop!  Dream Pop is yours for just $10 with a $35 purchase, so ask you Close to My Heart consultant how to stack your savings or contact me.

When my children were little I used to buy them pinwheels in the Summer when they were available and the wind or our breath would spin the wheel.  It reminds of a time when I did not have a child wanting a three hundred dollar machine, but a simply pinwheel that cost a quarter brought a smile.  If you arrived here from Nancy's blog then you are on the right path, but if you started here no worries  as this hop is a big circle, so keep on hopping and you'll see it all!  But if you'd like to start at the beginning here's the spot and wave when you hop by.


This set really speaks to me as a 4th of July set the height of Summer for me, and the day my youngest daughter made her debut into the world.  I decided to make a card that says come celebrate with us. We lived in Folsom, CA. and every 4th a Rodeo comes to town and they stay for 5 days(or did).  Our house was on a street that perfectly  highlighted the fireworks they shot off every night.  Of course all the kids and most adults would watch them every night.  My little girl thought these displays were for her and that the nightly fireworks celebrated her Birthday.  

 Let's Celebrate!

 Here's a list of the items I used.  These are available from your CTMH consultant or contact me as I'd be happy to help.
