Hello from cold Chicago, everyone. Heavens to Betsy! It is cold and snows at home in Utah all the time, but there is something about windy and humid Chicago cold and snow that just bite through you to the bone. I guess it's a good thing I am spending 90% of my time snuggled up with the brand new twins and my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter as well. It sure is going to be hard to leave them all when my time is up. I am missing Dan and Dawson terribly though, so I guess there will be some pull to head back to Utah when it's time.
Today, I am sharing another piece of artwork done with the AWESOME Close To My Heart January Stamp of the Month. This gorgeous and oh-so-creative piece of art was created by my friend and downline, Yvonne W. Yvonne is so talented and she outdid herself with creativity on this door hanger. The black square and circle are painted with chalkboard paint. The pocket holds a sticky note pad and a piece of chalk. The circle at the bottom is a calendar. The month rotates with the cute jute handle and the days can be circled with chalk. Brilliant, Yvonne! There is a products used list at the very end of this post complete with links to the CTMH products that Yvonne used for your convenience.
I also wanted to remind you of the awesome January specials as well as the items that will be retiring on January 31 at the latest. If they run out before then, they are gone. Get 'em while you still can.
Before I move on to that, I just HAD to share a couple of photos of my daughter and her beautiful family. I have LOVED being here in the Chicago to enjoy every little moment with her and her hubby, Rick, as well as these new twins and my little Daci. I'm not a proud grandma in the least.
