Price Markdowns at Close To My Heart!

Price markdowns! Are your ears perked yet? I hope so because mine certainly perked right up when I heard the news.

Here's how to see the 'goods':
  1. Head to my website here.
  2. Click on Shop Online.
  3. Click on Markdown.
  4. Then take a peek at the offerings. I'm pretty certain you will be shocked and amazed and the sizable markdowns on some of our most popular products of the past couple of years. They range from 20% off up to 61% off. WOWZERS!
If this weren't enough, you are going to DIE when I reveal the June special that Close To My Heart is running. Be sure to check my blog tomorrow for that announcement. I'll also be sharing the new June Stamp of the Month and some artwork to go with it.

Have a great rest of your Memorial Day! I'm fat and happy after a wonderful cookout with dear friends and family.

I am sure you have all noticed that there has been very little artwork sharing going on the past couple of weeks. That is not because I have sworn off creating, but because everything I am working on is top secret until after the Close To My Heart National Convention the first week of July. So sorry! I can't wait to share it all after that.

In the meantime, I am very excited to share a momentous occasion in our home with you. Last night, Tannon, my 3rd child, graduated from high school. Happy and sad all at the same time. Congrats, Tan Man. I love you!

"Hi" revisited

Remember this card from about a week or so ago... the one that I asked for your opinions on how to make it better? Well, I listened and guess guys were RIGHT! I just changed up a couple of things and WOW, what a difference.

Unfortunately I can't share the whole shebang with you, but I did take a photo of a corner of the card so you can see a couple of the changes. I'll share the whole thing with you when I'm able. It is for the Humble Artists Group Swap that I am in and the rules are that we are not supposed to share a photo of our finished project until everyone has sent their projects out. That means you should be able to see the whole card in a couple of weeks.

Until then, enjoy the sneaky peeky!

Oh, and how 'bout American Idol? I would have been happy with Crystal or Lee so I was happy. But, I think my favorite overall was Big Mike. I was sad when he went home.

Art & Soul and Overstamping

The new webisode of Art & Soul is available to view on my website. It's called "This One's for the Guys" and its full of great ideas and artwork with a masculine flair. It also teaches a new technique called "overstamping," which you can see on this layout and which I LOVE!

In this webisode (less than 12 minutes long) you will learn the technique of 'overstamping', and learn to make this layout, among other great projects. See that 'gnarly skateboarder' (as he is referred to by Kristine)? He is 'overstamped'!

I've also used 'overstamping' in a very subtle way on this "Season of Blessings" card. Can you see where and how after watching Art & Soul?

Blog Candy and Baby Bands and Bling

**This post will be staying at the top of my blog until Monday, May 24 so that everyone that comes has a chance to check this out and to win 5 (yep, you heard me...FIVE) free stamp sets from me!

I am one very proud mamma today. Okay so I am always a proud mamma, but today I have something exciting to share with you about one of my kiddos.

My daughter, Kori has started the most darling business. Quite often I get comments on my posts or emails asking me where she gets the flowers and headbands that Daci is always wearing. The answer is that she almost always makes them herself. She has decided to venture a little further than Daci's head and has recently started her own business selling these homemade flower clips and headbands. You simply must check it out. Click here to see her site and selection. If you want to bookmark it on your computer, the address is:

And, as if these cuter-than-cute flowers and bands weren't enough, I'm adding to the pot. Anyone (U.S. only) who orders from Kori by Monday, May 24 and then posts here in my comments on this post will be put in a drawing for these 5 Close To My Heart stamp sets from me (total value over $114). It's easy...just purchase from Kori's site then come back here and comment on this post to let me know that you did. You have until Monday, May 24 at 10 am (MDT). I will then double check the names with Kori and draw one. I will announce the winner here on my blog on Monday afternoon. SO MUCH FUN! Be sure to check back then in case you are the winner and then you can email me with your mailing address. The fun begins...

A Fabulous Cooking Class

I think one of the marks of a good leader is surrounding themselves with great people. I'm not sure I'm an especially great Relief Society President, but one thing I do have down is surrounding myself with great people. THANK YOU to Mary M. and Debbie B. for organizing last week's cooking class. I'd be lost without the two of you!

Last Thursday, the Relief Society (the womens' organization at my church) sponsored a very fun and oh-so-delicious cooking class using food storage items. My friend, Marilyn L. was the teacher and about 18 of us piled into her kitchen to gleen some pearls of wisdom from her.

Now let me tell you, this woman is amazing. She even makes her own yogurt and pasta. So, as you can tell, I had a lot to learn from her. The theme of the cooking class was stretching your food dollar by using beans (pinto, black, white, etc.) to supplement your meat. She made four amazing dishes that would feed 6 people, each using only one chicken breast. And, you really felt like you were getting LOTS of chicken when you ate them. Are you kidding me? When I make a soup or casserole, I almost always use 6 chicken breasts for my family. So you can see why I NEEDED this class! Just think of all the scrapbooking supplies that could be bought with my savings on chicken alone! Note: Marilyn's family, like many of the members of mine, is not too thrilled with whole beans in their foods, so Marilyn puree's much of what she uses to stretch the chicken. I was so excited with the results. Delish!

I thought I'd share Marilyn's recipes today. Also, another wonderful lady, Debbie B. brought her delicious cornbread for us to eat and also shared her recipe, which I will also share. I was great to take pictures of some of the wonderful ladies who attended, but silly me, I totally forgot to take photos of the food itself. Trust me when I tel you it was beautiful, as well as tasty!

Debbie B.'s Honey Cornbread

1 2/3 cup flour
3/4 cup cornmeal
2 Tbs. baking powder
1 1/4 tsp. salt

8 Tbs. butter (1 stick)
1 scant cup sugar
1/2 cup honey
2 eggs
1 2/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 325. Grease and flour an 8 x 8 baking pan and set aside. Combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt in mixing bowl and set aside. Place butter and sugar in large bowl of mixer and cream until smooth. Add honey and eggs, and beat to blend, scrapping bottom and sides of bowl frequently. Beat in half of the milk. Beat in half of the flour mixture. Repeat with remaining milk and flour mixture. With mixer at lowest speed, continue to mix for 4 minutes. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake in oven 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Now on to Marilyn's recipes:

Marilyn L.'s Chicken and Pinto Bean Enchiladas
1/2 cup diced onion
3 cups of pinto beans with some of the cooking liquid
Taco seasoning

1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 shredded chicken breast
1 cup grated cheese
2 cups homemade enchilada sauce (see recipe below)
10 flour tortillas

In a large skillet, fry onions in a little oil. Add pinto beans, taco seasoning, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes. Smash beans. Add shredded chicken breast. Pour some enchilada sauce in the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. Fill tortillas with the bean and chicken mixture and a little cheese. Roll up and place on top of enchilada sauce. Pour remaining enchilada sauce on top. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes. Garnish with avocado, tomato dices, or sliced black olives.

Marilyn L.'s Homemade Red Enchilada Sauce
2 6.5 oz. cans tomato sauce
1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
1/4 cup chili powder
1 Tbs. dried oregano
1 tsp. paprika
2 tsp. ground cumin
2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tbs. olive or canola oil
1 onion, minced
1 green bell pepper, chopped

In a medium sauce pan, combine tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, chili powder, oregano, paprika, cumin, pepper, salt and garlic. Cover and cook over medium heat. Meanwhile, coat fry pan with oil and saute onion. Stir in sauce. Cook 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in bell pepper and cook 10 minutes more.

Marilyn L.'s Black Bean and Chicken Tortilla Casserole
1 cup chicken broth
2 cans green chilies
1 or 2 cups shredded chicken breast
2 tsp. olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup evaporated milk or homemade evaporated milk (see recipe below)
1 cup shredded cheese

1 cup homemade enchilada sauce
12 corn tortillas
1 or 2 cups cooked black beans
Diced tomatoes
Cooking spray
1/2 cup extra sharp cheese
Crushed tortilla chips

In a pan, warm broth, green chilies and chicken. In a small fry pan, add oil and cook onion. Add to chicken mixture. Add milk. Spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray. Tear corn tortillas. Layer tortillas, chicken mixture, black beans, tomatoes and cheese. Repeat layers again. Top with cheese and tortilla chips. Bake in 350 oven for 20-30 minutes just to warm through. Great served with cornbread and a salad.

Marilyn L.'s Homemade Evaporated Milk:
1 cup water and 2/3 cup powdered milk

Marilyn L.'s Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
1 1/4 cup flour (or 3/4 c. whole wheat flour and 1/2 c white flour)
2 large eggs

Put the flour into a large bowl and make an indentation in the center. Beat the eggs and pour into the indentation. With a fork, gradually pull the flour into the eggs. When it is a rough mass, knead until smooth adding a little more flour if needed. Cover with plastic wrap and rest 30 minutes. Roll and cut into desired shapes. This makes 1/2 lb. pasta.

If you intend to use your fresh pasta within a week, place loosely in an airtight container before it dries and refrigerate. You may keep fresh pasta frozen for up to a month. You can dry it for long term storage by hanging for 4 hours or bunching loosely and setting on a towel to dry. Dry pasta stored in a tightly sealed container in a cool dry cabinet will keep indefinitely.

2-3 quarts chicken broth

1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup flour
1 shredded chicken breast
1 cup white beans
Add any of the following:
Diced carrots, diced celery, diced mushrooms, diced zucchini, diced green pepper, diced cabbage, corn. Season to taste.

With the butter and flour, make a roux. Add broth slowly while mixing. Add chicken, beans and vegetables. Simmer on low for 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Ten minutes before serving, add noodles and bring to a boil.

Tortilla Soup with Pinto Beans
Fresh or dried cilantro to taste (Marilyn used a hand full)
4 cloves garlic
Diced onion or dried flakes
1 small can of green chilies
10 oz. can diced tomatoes
3 quarts chicken broth (homemade)

2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 cups pureed pinto beans or 1 can refried beans
1 shredded chicken breast

In a blender, add 1 cup chicken broth, cilantro, cumin, salt, green chilies, garlic, onion and can of tomato dices. Puree and pour into a stock pot. Add rest of the chicken stock. Boil over medium heat for 10 minutes. In a blender, puree the pinto beans. Add to the stock pot and cook over medium heat for 10 more minutes.

Add shredded chicken and heat through. Ladle into bowls. Garnish with avocado, cheese, chopped tomato or fried tortilla strips.

Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who commented yesterday with wonderful suggestions on how I could make my card better. I loved all of the ideas and I have incorporated many of them into my card. I will be finishing that card (and 5 more just like it) later this week but won't be posting it for a few weeks. It is for the Humble Artists' Swap group and we are not allowed to post our finished products until everyone has sent in their cards. I promise I will post it once I am allowed. There's that darn patience thing again. Ugh.

What Do You Think?

I have been working on several things lately that I can't share for quite some time. Darn! It makes me crazy to create for a class I am teaching in the future, or with products that have not yet been released and not be able to share right away. I get so excited. It's almost like I feel when I buy someone a gift. I almost cannot wait to give it to them on their birthday. I just want to run right over and give it to them while I am still so excited about my purchase. I've heard that patience is a virtue, but I am not convinced. Almost all the projects I have been working on lately fit into the 'I cannot share them yet' category. To quote Winnie the Pooh, "Oh bother."

That doesn't mean I don't have something to share today though. Today's little share is different than anything I have ever shared before because this time I am asking for input on what this project needs. I created this card yesterday for a specific purpose and I like it okay, but it is not making me do summersaults or cartwheels. I want summersaults and cartwheels!

So, when you comment today, please help me out by answering one or all of the following questions:
  • Is there anything I need to add?
  • Is there anything I should take off?
  • Would the letters look better painted white than glittered?
  • Do you have any other suggestions on how I can take this card from okay to WOW!?
Thanks for your help! Have a wonderful day!

Happy Mail

I opened my mailbox a couple of days ago to find one of my favorite things...happy mail! My oh-so-talented friend, Bren created both of these cards. Double whammy happy mail from Bren...what could be better?

The first card was created using the new Passages papers.

The second card was created using the new Cherry-O Creative Basics papers.

Beautiful, Bren...just like YOU!

You can order these, or any other brand new products in the Summer 2010 Idea Book by clicking here and shopping on my website 24/7...even in your jammies!

National Kori Day!

No one in the world could possibly have a sweeter daughter than I do. Korinne Danae is the epitome of sweetness. I am so proud of her. Today is her birthday, and I'd ike to invite you all to help us celebrate. Have a piece of cake today and think of my Koribug!

Kori came into this world 24 years ago today and hasn't stopped blessing my life since. She is kind, selfless, and just pure goodness, through and through.

I remember once in high school she got a letter from a friend. I'm paraphrasing, because I don't think we still have the letter, but it went something like this, "Kori, I just want to thank you for your example. You never say anything bad about anyone. I have never heard you gossip and I respect you so much for that. I just wanted you to know how much I look up to you." What a compliment, don't you think?

Another little experience that comes to mind that might tell you a little bit about my girl is this one: Kori was on the drill team in high school. Although there were 20 members on the team, not all of the girls were in every competition dance. Kori was one of the lucky few who was. Just before competition season began, Kori got very sick. She lost 20 pounds in a matter of 2 weeks and we didn't know what was causing this illness (luckily we found out later that it was celiac disease and we were able to deal with that). In the first competition of the year she passed out coming off the floor after a dance. She wanted so much to help her team and she and her advisor decided that she would bow out of one of the dances, the most difficult and strenuous one, for the rest of the year. That left an open spot to fill. There were 8 girls who would all have done just about anything for that spot. But instead of filling it, they all got together and decided they didn't want to take Kori's spot. They re-choreographed the dance to fill her spot and said that it was open for her to come back to as soon as she was strong enough. She got to come back and dance that dance again for the last few competitions of that year. When she did, the girls all gathering together and said a prayer for her that she would be okay. The girls who were not in the dance waited in the hall so that as soon as she finished dancing they could help her back to the dressing room. They knew that it would take all of her strength just to get through the dance.

I'll never forget that. Not only did it show me the goodness and sisterhood that this group of girls had, but it also showed me how highly they thought of Kori. I have to agree. She is pretty darn special! I love you, Koribug! Happy 24th Birthday! Thank you for making me a mother!

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day, everyone! I am so grateful that I am a mother. I love my kiddos more than I could ever express in words. Being a wife and mother has truly brought me the greatest joy I have ever experienced in life. As I reflect on the wonder of motherhood, I also feel filled with gratitude for the mothers in my life.

To my mom (pictured here): Mom, you are the BEST! How I was blessed enough for God to pick you as my mother I will never know. I definitely got an angel. In your Mother's Day card today I wrote, "To the most Christ-like person I know." It's the truth! If I am only half the mother to my children that you are to me, I will feel pretty darn good about that! I love you.

To Grandma "T": Thank you for being you. Growing up, I looked up to you so much and wanted to be just like you. I loved how beautifully you decorated your home, wanted to be able to cook and entertain just like you, and dress just like you...oh yeah, and play pinochle just like you! Thank you for teaching me all of these things, except the pinochle part. I never will be as good at that as you are!

To my mother-in-law, Halene: I miss you! I can't believe it's been almost 16 years since you passed away. I miss your giggle, watching sports with you, canning with you, and hearing you call everyone "such a sight!" Thank you for raising my knight in shining armor!

To my Grandma Dunham: I wish we had lived closer to you growing up. I wish I had known you better. I am so grateful to you for raising my father to be the man that he is. I hope one day to meet you in heaven and sit down and have a LONG chat. I want to hear all of your stories and experiences!

To my daughter (and mother of my granddaughter), Kori: I am so proud of the mother that you are. I am so grateful that you and Rick have blessed our family with little Daci. I never have to worry about how she is being raised. You are the sweetest and most conscientious mommy. I hope you will forgive me for the mistakes I made as a mother.

Cherry-O Recipe Box Workshop

Are you as in love with the Cherry-O line from Close To My Heart as I am? I hope so, because cherries are the "it girl" of the summer.

I decided to combine a few of my loves for this workshop: Cherry-O, papercrafting, and cooking. Who doesn't need a darling recipe box? If you are like me, you have enough well-loved recipes to fill 2 or 3 boxes. Well then, that is why this workshop is so perfect!

This is another of my "double your fun" workshops, which means when you purchase the workshop you will get enough of everything you need to make 2 of what you see in the photo (2 boxes, 2 sets of 16 recipe cards, 2 sets of 4 dividers, 2 greeting cards {in case you want to give either of the boxes as a gift you will have a darling matching card!}). So, you can make 2 and keep them both (which is a great idea if you have tons of recipes like me), or you can make one for yourself and give the other as a gift, or you can split the workshop with a friend and you'll each get one. WOO HOO! By the way, thanks to my friends, Kim Lohberg and Nona Davenport for some of the inspiration for this workshop design.

If this is sounding like fun to you, keep reading.

You can participate in person by attending one of the workshops at my home in Highland, UT or you can do it long distance. If you choose to do it long distance, I will cut and stamp your paper for you at no extra cost for my labor. If you decide to participate long-distance, you will just pay $5 more for shipping. Email me to sign up (

Blog Candy Winner and 25!

Congrats to my blog candy winner, Michele H who said, "This is a great tool for playing with layouts, colors and embellishments; so much time is spent trying to figure out what size and how to place pictures."

Michele, please email me at to give me your mailing address. I'll get that $25 in new product in the mail to you right away. THANKS!

Don't forget that YOU can still play with Studio J any time you'd like, for free. There is no cost at all until you decide to order any of the layouts you created. Just click here to play.

Today is the 25th anniversary of the day that Dan the Man and I were married in the Salt Lake City LDS Temple for time and all eternity. I love you, Dan-O! Thanks for the best 25 years of my life...and here's to at least another 25! Dont-cha LOVE that 80's dress and hair-do?

Have a wonderful day, everyone!
