Our Card Cafe Event will be postponed until next Sunday, October 26th. Same time, same place. I thought I could do it. But with moms fall and hospital stay, came issues that prevented me from getting completely ready. I really hoped I could do it (like the little train "I think I can..."). I just realized my hopes have to become realities and admit my limits. I look forward to next week. Please keep mom in your prayers.

November Constant Campaign
November marks the five-year anniversary of Studio J®, and that means it’s your lucky month, with five amazing ways to win through Studio J and Close To My Heart social media!
First, throughout the month of November, all layouts purchased in Studio J are $5! That is a savings of over 25% off of retail! Your second chance to win big must come by sheer luck: every fifth order placed in Studio J during November receives a FREE surprise Close To My Heart accessory in its shipping box! The accessory has a retail value of $5 or more.
If luck doesn’t smile on you in that way, you might stumble upon it by finding a little extra something in your Studio J box. Five “golden tickets” will be sent out during the month of November with randomly selected Studio J print orders! This “golden ticket” is redeemable for one of Close To My Heart’s new D-ring albums* loaded with 10 Top Load Memory Protectors™.
For a fourth way to win, simply create new, gorgeous layouts in Studio J, select your favorites, and then post pictures of them on Close To My Heart’s Facebook page using the hashtag #ctmhlucky5. After November 30, five lucky winners will be selected from the entries based on their artistry and creativity and each of these winners will receive their own D-ring album loaded with 10 Top Load Memory Protectors!
And there is one last way to win: take your new Studio J artwork and post a picture of it on Instagram using the hashtag #ctmhlucky5. Just as it is with Facebook, after November 30, five lucky winners will be selected from the entries to receive their own D-ring album loaded with 10 Top Load Memory Protectors!
Plus, there is a bonus Consultant-only way to win. After the campaign has ended, the top five Consultants who had the greatest number of customers who order during the campaign will also get a D-ring album loaded with 10 Top Load Memory Protectors! This sixth way to win is only open to Consultants, so make sure to encourage every one of your customers—new to Studio J or not—to start designing now.
And to make things even more exciting, starting November 1, five brand new kits from the Annual Inspirations idea book will be made available in Studio J, so you can create new artwork using the latest papers and embellishments from Close To My Heart. With so many ways to win, five may be your new lucky number! Log in to Studio J and start creating today.
*Offer valid November 1–30, 2014. Pattern and color of new D-ring album to be given to winners will be at Close To My Heart’s discretion based upon availability. New kits available in Studio J® on November 1 include Confetti Wishes, Snowhaven, Seaside, Pathfinding, and Scaredy Cat. No tax or shipping will be charged on the free item(s). Studio J layouts ship in a protected box that can hold 4 to 50 two-page layouts. For additional information about shipping/handling, please visit StudioJ.com > Products and Pricing > Shipping Options.
Dates: Offer valid November 1, 2014–November 31, 2014.

Yes, I am finished with a project that I began on the 1st...Of December! So it is the 25th of April and it has taken me this long to get the creative juices flowing. I really needed time. Time to be quite. Time to think. Time to reflect. I took one picture per day of a normal activity going on in the world around me, printed it and stuck it in my SMASH book. There, that's it, SMASH! Done. After all, wasn't that what they were designed for? Not so quick. Journaling, oh yeah! No problem, I've got a good memory. Right? But then there is the peer pressure. You know, when other creative people are posting their pages on social media and suddenly you have to be all creative too. Ehh, not so much! Well now it's done, and I can happily say, I am pleased with the results. My 25 Days of December Smash book is complete!
So my definition (not Webster's) is:
Peer Pressure: If you don't have creative juices, don't fret. There are many others that are. Copy! I would be honored if anyone copied me!

Yep, this describes me. Life has been chaotic. But, it is our mantra, our goal in life, our catch phrase. But does it have to be? Can we just all slow down? Can we? When I set up this picture, all I could think was "I wish time could slow down ". My oldest grand boy turned 13 yesterday, entering the world as a teenager. Before I know it, 13 more years will pass, and I'll wonder the same thing. Enjoy the moment and be so scrappy.
