Lots To Love and 5

The newest episode of Close To My Heart's Art and Soul is online now on my website to view. It's called "Lots to Love"; quite an apt title! It's FULL of great Valentine art and ideas you'll adore. Click here to see it for yourself.

Be sure to set aside a mere 10 minutes and 54 seconds to be inspired. You'll love the first layout, shared by my friend, Kristine. It's called "I Love Us," and you can even click on a link below the screen when you're done for step-by-step instructions to make this beautiful spread. One of my favorite techniques shared on this portion of the show is covering dimensional elements with cardstock and using finishing files and markers to top them off. Sidenote: Kristine is one of those rare people that is not only super beautiful, intelligent and articulate, but also super silly and full of fun. I've included a couple of photos here of her, another friend of mine (Michelle L.) and I from a few years ago when we were in North Carolina together shooting a show called "Paint, Paper and Crafts" (PBS). We were enjoying an evening at The Cheesecake Factory after a day of taping. GREAT memories! OK, so back to the good stuff: After Kristine finishes her layout you'll move on to 2 elegant Veranda layouts shown by Tiffany. Lest you think that is all, keep watching for darling lollipop covers and a quick direction on how to make them from Monica. And lastly, our company owner and CEO, Jeanette Lynton shares the valentines she has made for her family. Jeanette is one of the most caring people I know, and it definitely shows through when you listen to her talk about each Valentine and why it fits each family member. Wow! Trust me, it's definitely worth 10:54 of your time.

Be sure to tune in on my website on the 2nd Tuesday of every month for the latest installment of Art and Soul. There is also an Art and Soul widget on the left side of my blog that is always a quick way to enter the CTMHTV portion of my website and view current or past episodes of Art and Soul.

In case you missed the link the first time, click here to watch it. And, click here to enter my website to order any of the great products you see on Art and Soul, or any other great products for that matter...24/7!

And, lest you think I have forgotten the countdown...5 (yes, FIVE) more days until our Easton returns from his mission. I took this picture of E a few months before he left on his mission at a family reunion at Bear Lake (UT). I think it looks like a Hollister ad! lol.

I remember when you posted something on the artwork boards with this photo of your son. He caused quite an uproar with the ladies, lol. Did you tell him about that?

Rick and Kori said...

Yay! Five! Can't wait! Also, I have to agree with you about Christine. She is everything you said she amazing lady!

Goodness gracious you need to remove the photo of Easton! You are going to have every single chick in town at your door step in 5 days! He is right off the cover of GQ. Move over Matthew M.

I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy! That meal from the Cheesecake Factory (think carrot cake cheesecake) will go down as one of my favorite evenings of ALL TIME. What an awesome lady you are.

And YOWZA, holy swimtrunks, Batman--has it really been two years? I'm SOOO excited for you, Dan, and the whole Pedersen clan to welcome Easton home. Celebrate your many blessings, my friend, and give Easton a hug for me (since it would be WEIRD to do it myself! :))
