From Jeanette: Celebrate with me!

Merry Christmas from the Lyntons!Merry Christmas from my family to yours! How I love this time of year and the opportunity to celebrate the birth and life of my Savior, Jesus Christ. He is the reason behind the holiday and the center of my personal and family celebrations. I love everything about Christmas, but most especially how wonderful it is to be surrounded by these dear people who mean so much to me. I hope that your holiday is filled with joy, peace, and merriment in the company of cherished friends and loved ones.

As we look ahead to the start of another year, I am just bursting with excitement for 2019—it marks 35 years since I first began selling stamps and designing my own. Close To My Heart is the amazing company and community that has grown out of those very first efforts of mine, which is why we’re making 2019 an entire year of celebration! We’re kicking off the year with a brand new catalog of products that will launch on January 1—here’s a little peek for you:

Seasonal Expressions 1 Idea Book and Catalog by Close To My Heart #ctmh #se1That’s only the cover, but I hope that when you look at it, you can feel the excitement I’m talking about. It’s the same excitement you feel on a Christmas morning: The anticipation of great things in store. And believe, me, have we got great things in store for you!

In fact, since it is just too hard to wait even one more week, I want to kick off the celebration with a little giveaway! I want to give away 35 prizes consisting of one of our new stamp sets paired with a pack of the new Mix-in paper packet featured in the upcoming idea book:

Enter to win this 35-year giveaway prize! #giveaway #ctmhIf you’d like to win one of these prizes, just share a comment with me of one thing you’ll be celebrating in 2019. Make your comment before January 1 and we’ll draw our 35 winners in the first week of January.

The reason I chose that particular stamp set is because of the sentiment, which says “We didn’t realize we were making memories we just knew we were having fun.” I have certainly experienced that many times in my 35 years of business! We may not always be aware of it, but we’re always making memories through all the adventures of this life. I hope that this holiday season has brought you many fun, fulfilling times, and that the year ahead brings you even more that you will be able to capture and preserve as happy memories for years to come.

From my heart to yours, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  12. I’m excited to scrapbook about my new granddaughter, Aria Grace, who was born December 13. I plan to use the Girl Layout kit with 10 layouts highlighting her first year. I used the Boy Layout kit to scrapbook my 3rd grandson, Beckett in 2017. I spent Christmas with my daughter’s family in Eagle Mountain (I live in St. Joseph, MO.), so I have so many wonderful Christmas pictures to scrapbook. I’m using the Tis the Season workshop your way for the boys” Christmas pictures. The Oh What Fun workshop Your Way is perfect for scrapbooking pictures of my granddaughter! As soon as I return home, I’ll be meeting weekly with a group of friends and begin scrapbooking my Christmas pictures. I can’t wait!!!

  17. Celebrating the strength of family as we ring in 2019. The year 2018 was extremely difficult as I lost my little Brother to cancer 2/24 followed by my Dad on 3/24. A 3rd loss was my Sister-in-law in August. The strength of our family unit has gotten us through so many difficult days and heart wrenching firsts. This years rare shining moment was the birth of my new Grandson (named in honor of my little Brother) on 12/08. Looking forward to a 2019 filled with joy and good memories. We are blessed with our amazing family unit who is always there for each other.
