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!

  11. Jeanette, you have a beautiful family. Hope you all have a blessed New Year! In 2019 I just want to celebrate each day as it comes. I think it’s easy to overlook the little things but my goal this year is to find things each day to be grateful for and focus on because I know God gives us plenty of things each day worth celebrating.

  17. I too just noticed the post regarding entires for what I look forward to in 2019.
    On July 14, 2019 my husband and I will be celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary. How ironic both of us will be celebrating an amazing 35 years! My husband and I have two wonderful sons and daughter in law (who loves to make CTMH cards too) and a 19 mo old grandson who has brought such joy to our family. I’m so blessed to have such a loving husband and family.
    I attended my first CTMH cardmaking workshop in 2005 and have been “hooked” since then. I still have all the catalogs dating back to Autumn/Winter 2005.
    Congratulations to Jeanette and all those at CTMH for 35 years of beautiful ideas and products. May CTMH continue to inspire their customers for another 35 years (and many more).
    God bless you!

  19. CTMH has been my FAV product(s) to go to. Through out the past 20+ years, My daughter invited me to my 1st CTMH crop soo many years ago. Scrapping through out the years. Now not just my daughter but my 2 grand – daughters, and even the children at our church. God is so good! I LOVE LOVE the quality of your products, never disappointed. I still have a few of the stamp pads I purchased years ago. Still juicy!!! Looking forward to starting scrapping classes at our church. My goal for this 2019 is to do a Scrap book for our church. Excitement and taking a big step in commitment. Have a Super Blessed & Prosperous 2019!
