Bonjour La Belle Vie!

So I FINALLY have a card to show you.  It uses the new La Belle Vie paper pack from Close to my Heart.  I created it for  a swap that was due earlier this month.  Now the only problem is that I took the picture with my phone so it's not the best quality.

I've been working over the weekend on  HUGE Holiday scrapping extravaganza!  Basically there will be 3 different scrapping times through the day where you will have the chance to complete 1 of 2 offered workshops.  You can either do all 3 or pick and choose what you want.  Can't make it?  I'll have the option of you ordering and having it sent to you.  Be sure to check back for more details or contact me directly.

I thought today I'd share an image of the palce where I'm hoping to go on a trip to.

Oahu, Hawaii is one of the choices we have to choose from if we earn the incentive trip from Scentsy this year.  But this isn't the only place.  You can choose from 6 different locations!!!  How cool is that?!?!!?  Want to join me here?  Join my team and you could have a chance to go here to.

Holiday Shopping....

Have you started your holiday shopping yet?  I sure haven't.  I'm one of those people who heads out the first weekend in December and gets it ALL done.  I think last year I hit the Superstore at about 10:30 at night and was able to complete most of it - and I timed it to be with one of their NO TAX events so I could save a little money.

We'll I have a great way that you can start your shopping early, and save some money - with the Scentsy Family of course!!!!  Let me share a couple of examples.  Please note that even though the prices are listed in Canadian dollars, you can get these same items from my website in the US.  AND if you are visitng here from Europe, Scnetsy is available in come countries there (and is expanding to a few more in October), so just be sure you email me with any questions and I'd be glad to help you out.

 So let's start with a great gift from Scentsy - the Perfect Plug ins.

The Perfect Plug -ins Combine and save is $72 and consist of 2 plug ins of your choice and 6 bars of your choice.  So that's 2 gifts for only $36 each before shipping and tax!  Perfect for a friend, relative, co-worker, close neighbour, child care provider or teacher.

Scentsy also offers an number of items under $20 - perfect for the school bus driver, baby sitter, secret Santa, gift exchange, etc.  And I love that these items don't have to be used with a warmer either.  So if your not sure what type of warmer someone would like, then you can choose to get them a scent pack, travel tin, hand cream, etc.  Be sure to check out my website for more information.

Whatever Wednesday...

I haven't been very good about posting and Close to my Heart stuff lately.  Basically that's because I haven't found very much time to craft lately.  I really want to change that, but for today, I thought I'd share a little video from Close to my Heart with you.  This video demonstrates how you can use the new Cricut Artiste to plan a party.

I have a Close to my Heart order going in this Saturday.  If you wold like to add the cartridge to the order, let me know ASAP.  It's only $99.  And you can get the following stamp sets for only $5 each when you purchase this cartridge.

It's Your Day stamp set for National Stamping month.

Fitness Friday

If you read my last post then you know that Friday is going to be all about the journey to the "new" me. 

I've been saying for a while that I want to start to run.  I also want to run a 1/2 marathon at some point.  Back in the spring I started to get out a bit to run but something always got in the way - I didn't get up early enough, I couldn't go on my break at work because people needed to talk to me,  evening meetings at work meant I got home to late, blah blah blah.

In the Spring I found out about the Scentsy Consultant Wellness Page on Facebook.  Yes you read that right - Scentsy has page that is dedicated to helping their consultants get healthier.  How amazing is that!!!  Does your employer do that for you?!?!?!  Anyways I lurked around there for a while, and then started to look at some of the challenges.

So I finally started this week.  I'm not thrilled with the numbers on the scale.  And yes I know that some people out there would be happy to see those number son the scale, but I'm not.  And I don't think that I'm ready to share them with you.  I will however share with you what my goals are to help keep me accountable.....

By the end of February I'd like to be down 20 pounds, and then by the end of July down another 20 pounds for a total of 40 pounds.

So this week I started doing the C210K (Couch potato to 10K) running guide thing.  :P  So far I have completed Week 1 days 1 and 2, and I will complete day 3 tomorrow.  I also started a core building class last night that runs until Christmas.  I'm keeping track of my "miles" on dailymile, so if you are there, be sure to add me (I think my name is hmpoohbear).  So far I'm able to complete about 3km in 30 minutes.  And it's only going to get better.

MIA again.....

And this time I don't have an excuse.  I can't believe it's been a month since I posted again.  Well I'm here posting this and I think I'm going to set up a few posts to appear over the next little while.

This blog started out as a spot to share my Close to my Heart creations.  And while I'd still like to share those, I don't seem to be doing as much crafting as I'd like to lately.  So I'm going to change up my blog a bit and try to set a different theme for each day of the week.  And while I may not post every day, I'll at least attempt to 3-4 times per week.

I'm thinking that these will be the themes for the days.....

Photo Sunday - I'll share a photo that I love.  It may be one that I took, or one that I've found somewhere.

Make it Monday - A day to share something crafty that I have created.

Pay it forward Tuesday - I'll share something from someone else's blog.  It could be anything from food to crafts to inspiration.

Whatever Wednesday - A day for whatever.

Thursday -I'm thinking thankful/thoughtful Thursday, but this may change.

Fitness Friday - I'm trying to get more active and lose a few pounds, so this is when I'll post how I've been doing.  As well as any recipes that I've found along the way that I love.

Scentsational Saturdays - This is the day when I'll share something from the Scentsy Family.

So be sure to check in to see what I've got going on.
