Time seems to fly! It feels like I'm always trying to catch up! Here's another update on what I've been doing!

After our family vacation to Hawaii, we celebrated our daughter's birthday, Mother's day, Father's Day and a trip to see my family in Minnesota and Illinois. We also went on a really fun trip to Alabama with other Wounded Warrior families! I just returned from our annual Close to my heart convention!!! Wow, I had an amazing time at the Disneyland Hotel learning, creating and catching up with all my consultant friends!

We have a packed schedule for the months ahead and we are working on staying organized throughout. I am super excited with the release of our new catalog, the Annual Inspiration 2015-2016!! I will be sharing on my Facebook page, Instagram and Twitter! You can find me on Facebook by searching Alex Gaud - Close To My Heart Independent Consultant, find me on Instagram as ScrappinGaudess and on Twitter as Alex_CTMH.
