If you've arrived here from Krista's blog you're on the right track.  BUT if you get lost or find a broken link pop over to Melinda's blog for the whole list of participants. We have over 50 consultants participating this month.  A blog hop is one big circle, so keep hopping and enjoy all the wonderful creations.

 I created these cards using patterns from Make it From Your Heart Vols. 1 and 2
I adore the How Too publications from Jeanette Lynton (Owner of CTMH) she is a true visionary and entrepreneur in the Stamping and Paper industry.  This is her 30th year in business! 
I highly recommend that you pick up these volumes.  They have Layouts and card patterns, so something for everyone. These really help me when I sit down to create. 

 The patten is located in Make it from Your Heart Vol. 2 pattern 24.

Laughing Lola is the paper pack that I used, along with White Daisy card bases(value pack) our sneak peak of Party Washi tape Honey Triangles  that you can find in  Holidays from the Heart with a pop black and grey Sparkles, Aqua Dots, our exclusive Black Ink.

 The pattern is located in Make it From Your Heart Vol. 1 pattern 23

 This is our backyard at about 2 feet of snow and latter we had another foot or so.
 My Dad out plowing...this scares me to death.
A perspective shot showing the snow up to my Mom's knees.  We've had it with the snow and the physical labor of moving the snow, driving in the snow, freezing because of the snow.  I'm disabled I can only do so much when it comes to snow, my Mom is 74 and my Dad 70.  We're going home.  We put our home on the market, signed the realtor contracts on Halloween, it showed up on the MLS Nov 2...the home sold in 10 days.  This is a record sale in our neighborhood and area.  We figured we had about 6 to 9 months for our home to sale.  

Now the hard thing it's packing up our belongings, donating, pitching, and selling equipment.  I've packed over 400 stamp sets!

Our home closes escrow on the 31st of December.  We're flying my Dad,(health) me, my Mom, and Josh along with Sadie(pup) will be driving across country to the Sacramento Valley. My son is flying in from SoCal were he goes to Chapman University, so this will be my last creative post until February.  I'm looking forward to the warmer weather, seeing the majority of my family, being able to visit with my daughters, and grandson, who live in Tacoma, Washington, and learning what has changed, yet what has stayed the same in my 14 year absence.

Now hop on over to Dawn's blog.   Thanks for coming by I hope you've enjoyed what I created along with my long winded chat about what is going on in my life.

Create from the Heart,
