My Story * Whitney’s Message * Stamps * TBT * Heart 2 Heart


Once upon a time many many years ago, a very precious lady named April offered to teach an “Art Stamping” class at our home school co-op. Well, I needed teachers and she seemed pretty tickled by this new hobby she had, so we said, “Yes, please teach your little class.”

That little “Art Stamping” class was the longest running class I know of and lasted at least a decade exciting children with a quick, FUNN, art outlet.

Each week I would see April’s huge display boards and ogle at the intense cuteness.

I was invited to a Mom/Daughter stamping party hosted by a mutual friend and led by April. IT WAS SO MUCH FUNN! It was then that stamping became an obsession. If you are reading this, you might share this obsession. Who could stay calm after creating “LENNY LAMB” in gold embossing?

At that party, I bought “Whitney’s Message”. It was the Stamp of the Month! Let’s celebrate TBT with Whitney.


Yes, old Whitney was WOOD mounted!
Like I said, it was a long, long time ago!
But, she is still in good shape, too, for an old gal. Nothing like Close To My Heart quality.


Thought it would be FUNN to play along with the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog this week.
The theme is “THREE”, so here I go…

Three old Close To My Heart products: wood stamp, retired colors (Moonstruck! Heavenly Blue and some pink), and, yes, that is original CTMH black gingham ribbon!

Thank you, Close To My Heart Consultants for being such a kind, encouraging, FUNN group.
I am thankful to call you friends.
