Happy New Year!

I can not believe 2009 will be over in just a day and half. It's been an amazing year. I'm sad to see it go but anxious and very excited to see what's in store for 2010.

I've had such a blast this year with my Crafting team, Gotham City Stampers. I joined the team in Nov 2008 not knowing much of anything about crafting. Luckily I joined the most amazing team and learned so much from them. It still amazes me when I think about how talented and amazing this group is, and how blessed I am to be a part of it. I started out as a hobbyist till August after I came back from Convention. A majority of us went to the Stampin Up! Convention and we all came back so ready to Create, Share and Inspire. I came back ready to start my business but wasn't sure how to get started, and with the help of my amazing Upline Heidi Davenport (,

I had my business started within a month after convention. It's been so rewarding to be able to share what I've learned over the last year with others. I started out thinking "I can't do that", but Heidi and the rest of the team showed me just how easy it would be.
I've now got my very own Meetup Group Heart to Art Creations (, and my very first downline who happens to be one of my best friends.

I'm also part of Heidis awesome design team, which is now in our 9th week.

My design:

It's been such an amazing here and I'm so grateful for all of my family and friends for all their love and support. 2009 you've been great but I can't wait for 2010. It's going to be FANTASTIC year!

Happy New Year to you all and may you all have a Wonderful and prosperous year!

Much Thanks,

Meet Up Group

This year being my first Holiday season for my business I decided to do my own 12 Days of Christmas. I LOVE Christmas. I look forward to it every year, even when times are tough. This year was particuarly hard with the economy in such a slump and I remembered how last year my wonderful upline and dear friend Heidi Davenport ( showed me some great handmade gifts ideas. So this year I was really excited to help spread that knowledge and do 12 Days of Christmas: Holiday Gifts.

It's been such a blast creating and sharing with friends, and meeting new friends. We done everything from cards, to stamping on Candles, to Christmas Ornaments, to This weeks class which is Scrapbook Tins.
Please Check out my Meetup Groups site for some great Photos of some great Stampin Up gifts.

Here are samples of we did for 12 Days of Christmas:

-Ornament Class

-Cards, Cards,Cards

-Jewelry using new Products from Upcoming Occasions mini. Used Vintage Vogue and Sweet Pea paperstack.

-Stampin on Candles.

These are just a few of my samples. There's loads more pics on site. We had a great time this holiday season. It's bittersweet my 12 days is coming to an end. But hey it's almost CHRISTMAS!!

Enjoy and be Merry! Hope these gifts will inspire this Holiday season.

Back from Hiatus

Hi Everyone, Im so sorry I've been MIA. I've just really got my Meetup Group Heart To Art Creations up and running and with the Holidays here too its taken up alot of my time. For the Holidays I decided to do a 12 Days of Christmas with my Meetup Group. Its been so much fun, just Sad my 12 days of Xmas are almost over :(
Here's a little recap of the last three weeks.

First off very excited that I have lots of new design additions to the Gotham City Stampers Design Challenge. Week #5 Marty came up with a really cool sketch:

I sat for a few with this sketch unclear as to what I should create, and then I rememberd a few days after it was my Brothers birthday. I had gotten the LOTS O BOTS set from the SU Catalog specifically for his birthday card. And then it hit me, 'I should make a birthday card for my birthday using this great sketch'. Here is my Design:

For Week 6:
Marty created this awesome sketch.

Since I was just starting my Christmas cards I decided to take advantage of our weekly sketches and make Xmas cards. For this sketch as soon as I saw it, I just knew I had to use Stampin Up!'s AMAZING Medallion Stamp.

For week 7:
Marty came up with a fun flower sketch.

But being I was in the Christmas Spirit I saw ORNAMENTS :)

Last but not least this weeks fabulous "Urban"sketch.

Now of course I saw buildings in the sketch and instantly saw MY NYC. I figured since New Years was coming up I would ring in the new Year with some Fire Works:

So excited to be on this Design Team. It's been an amazing 8 weeks. Stay tuned for Week 9. In the meantime please check out the rest of the teams designs at

Thanks for stopping by :)
