CTMH Convention Highlights & Pictures

I am behind on sharing...and I have so much to share! Be sure to "like" my Facebook Page for more up-to-date info :)

The end of June was Close to my Heart's annual convention, and I joined my CTMH family at the Happiest Place on Earth...Disneyland! I made a vacation out of it. My family lives in San Diego, as you may know, so Kailyn and I flew to San Diego first for several days, then went to Disneyland for Convention. My MIL and SIL came with us so they could watch Kailyn while I enjoyed all the festivities!

She made an appearance for lots of pictures, though! I am so proud of my friend and downline, Mandy, who has earned top recruiter multiple times, and had 20 of her fabulous team members at Convention.

Here I am with Amie and Dana before one of our General Sessions. Mandy gave everyone these cute Minnie ears. And she also gave Kailyn these cute Minnie ears and outfits that her baby Londyn wore to Convention at Disneyworld last year! So handy that our babies were born almost exactly a year apart :)

Oh my goodness I just love this picture. Such a DOLL!
This is my friend Michele (pronounced like Michael). She is a Director in the Seattle area and when I lived in Seattle, she adopted me as team member and let me attend her team meetings!

Here's our brand new Annual Inspirations Idea Book and the super cute convention bag/backpack we got this year!

Cute hedges at the Disneyland hotel outside of the Convention Center....

Here's Mandy and me at the Awards Banquet! She, of course, earned several awards!

And here are Dana and Amie again. Love these girls!

Unfortunately I missed our team photo that happened before General Session so I don't have a picture of everyone :( But it was so fun to meet my online friends from all over the country!

Now to the good stuff...


It is called Artfully Sent and it is card-focused and AWESOME. Just like Art Philosophy, Artiste, and Artbooking. It is not finished being produced by Provo Craft yet so I have not been able to play with it ahead of time like Consultants usually get to do, but it will be available some time in August. I will be sure to let you know when it is here!!!

I will be posting some cards that I made at Convention using it SOON! Plus I took pictures of some cards that CTMH shared at Convention. It is AMAZING. Seriously. You need it.

Email me if you want to be on my interest list and I'll be sure to let you know once it's here!  jaymalew [at] gmail [dot] com
