November Newsletter


Sign up for my newsletter here!

It's a wonderful time of year!

Fall is here and so are egg-nog and pumpkin spiced lattes! 

I love this time where we have a chance to sit back and see all the great things that have come out of the year.  School is in session, my 6 year old is starting to read and is gaining confidence his ability to read.  It's so awesome to see that smile break across that face when he realizes that he is successful.  It's also so wonderful to see my friends and customers create beautiful projects even though they would never call themselves "crafty."  That's what I love about Close to My Heart.  There's something for everybody.  My Advent Calendar workshop was a success this last week.  If you missed it, you can purchase the ready-to-assemble DIY kit any time this month.  Allow a week for your items to come from CTMH and for me to create your kit.

Why Handmade Means More

Gifts from the Heart

The holiday season is coming up fast — have you started your shopping yet?And what are you going to get for those few people on your list who are impossible to shop for? What do you give to that person that seems to have everything? If you’ve got some question marks on your list this year, try giving something handmade.

Why handmade? There are many reasons that a gift you make yourself is more meaningful than what you can get off the shelf:
•             Time — is there anything more valuable? Once you’ve given your time to something, you can never get it back. When you put your valuable time into making something personal and unique, you are giving one of the most valuable things you have.
•             Personal Touch — everything you create is infused with a part of you. A gift that you created is much more likely to remind the recipient of you simply because it carries the signature of your creativity.
•             Customizable — don’t spend hours in stores looking in vain for just the right thing. With a handmade gift, you can make something just right by tailoring it to what you know about the person you are giving it to.
•             Rarity — when you make something handmade, you are creating an item that is unique. That uniqueness adds value to the gift because there is nothing else like it. It is a gift that only you can give.
There is no limit to the handmade gifts you can give this year. A beautiful card or scrapbook page may be just the right thing, or a decorated picture frame, jewelry box, or wall art. Let your creativity shine this holiday season and give something that means a little more — give something handmade.
