Fabulous February

Hi There all my Crafty Peeps!

I can’t believe February is here already. Time sure is flying by this year. Here we sit after New Year’s, right before Valentine’s Day and Super Bowl Champions for some of our local football fans! Congratulations and enjoy celebrating your championship. I hope there are plenty of pictures to scrap.

I have broken this email down and given titles to each section so you can read through the topics you want to read about most and refer back as needed. It is my goal to send you all valuable information and stay in touch with all the great things happening with Creating with YOU!

What’s New at the Law House

For those of you who hadn’t heard…. About a month ago, a deer walked up through our back yard and decided our home looked so warm and cozy it would drop in for a visit. Said deer tried to leap from outside the house into the house through our double kitchen windows. Yes, this stuff really happens to people. We are those people!!! lol Our home renovations list had to be updated and we now have two new windows that will provide the perfect frame for the view of our backyard. George has also installed the new sink, hardware, faucet and water purification system. I feel so very blessed to have such a handy guy to go through life with.

We are onto the next projects and looking forward to many more trips to our local hardware store. I think he may go there to just get away or even hide.

Organizing It All

Last year, we started a focus on de-stashing our craft supplies and really using the wonderful products we loved so much we just had to have. This year…. Our 2018 focus will be all about “Organizing It All”.

As part of this, we will continue with de-stashing because that will help us get everything organized which will make things easier to find, use and give us more crafting time. I will be sharing tips during our Sunday Live with CWY videos every Sunday Night at 7:30pm est. I will also share the tips on Facebook, the Blog and our Newsletters.

Do you LOVE our Close to my Heart Compliments? I do!!! I think the quality is amazing. The perfect match for our CTMH papers make all your craft projects come together perfectly. And, the overall value for the quantity and quality can’t be beat. I have accumulated quite a few of these precious little packets and I want to be able to get to these and use them quickly and easily. The packages fit so nicely in our Small Organizer. You will be able to hold a bunch of your compliments and can even set up multiple organizers with different themes if you are a CTMH Compliments Super Fan!

February Events



We are just days away from our Happy Day!!! We have just two seats remaining for our February All Day Crop Event on February 10th and we will be ” Sold Out”! I will be doing a special raffle for everyone registered by midnight Wednesday, February 7th so make sure if you have a friend who was thinking about joining the fun you give them a call and tell them to hop to! They might just hop away with a snazzy crafty gift.

We will have new kits, cards and special surprises for everyone. A day filled with food, friends, fun and of course CRAFTING!!! I can’t wait to see you all and share some special time together.


I am so excited to announce the first of very many Customer Appreciation events to thank all of you for your continued support of my crafty journey and dream. We are ever grateful for all the support and encouragement you have given us. There will be food, fun and free craft projects for everyone. I hope you can join us.

This event is held every month at the Rt. 40 diner on the third Thursday of the month. Details and layout themes are posted on our events page.

CWY Sketch of the Month

Let the fun begin!! Each month we will have a sketch of the month for everyone to share. It is my hope that you will use the sketch to create great works of art, get caught up on that card stash you need or scrapbook layouts, and share them with all of us on the CWY Facebook Page. Grab your favorite CTMH crafting supplies, make the magic and share it.

This month’s “Sketch of the Month” is a card design that would also make a very nice addition to any scrapbook layout. The basic design sketch is for the designed card base. As you can see from the picture above, which features one of our February Card Kits by Mail projects, I used a front focal decorative circle to enhance this one. The sky is the limit!!! Use the measurements below to create whatever you like. Don’t forget to share… there may be prizes!!!

Card Size: 4.25 x 5.5
Mat: 4 x 5.25
Center Stripe: 1.5 x 5.5
Border Strips (2): .25 x 5.5

I can’t wait to see what you all create!!
