WHEW, THAT WAS A WORKOUT! ALL of these cartridges are available at My Creative Clubhouse. In addition to these being available for use within the clubhouse, you may also RENT them!! That's right! If you or someone you know owns a Cricut machine, you may come in and rent the Cricut Cartridges! The charge is $10.00 for 24 hours! You will need a photo ID and a debit or credit card to rent these out.

Now, as if THAT isn't exciting enough, there are EIGHT MORE cartridges being released approximately mid-September!!! These will include: Batman, Calendar, Elmo, Everyday Paperdolls, From My Kitchen, Superman, Sweethearts and Winter Woodlands! Then, in early 2010 we can expect for European Decor and Kitchen & Bath Decor to finally hit the market (they have been delayed).

Hope you all are as excited that these are available as I am to be able to offer them! See you all soon!

Clubhouse Closed-

Please be aware...My Creative Clubhouse will be closed beginning Wednesday, July 29th @ 3:00 pm through Sunday, August 2nd! Doors will reopen at 10:00 am on Monday, August 3rd!

I am headed to sunny Long Beach, California for the Close To My Heart (CTMH) Leadership Convention where I will be obtaining both business & creative training to bring back and share with all of you! I am looking forward to a sneak peek at the not yet released new products, and getting training on them as well.

I will be planning an Autumn/Winter Idea Book release party, so be sure to keep your eyes open for more details!

Thank you for your understanding, and I apologize in advance if this causes any issues with your planning on being at My Creative Clubhouse during these hours.

See you all soon!

Join Me on FACEBOOK!

Yep!! You've got it!! I have now created a group just for us on Facebook!! I LOVE it because I can post all the upcoming classes, workshops, crops, etc for you all to see more easily. So, if you are interested, come JOIN OUR GROUP!

Here is the link:

Hope to see you there!

You have been asking for it, and it is FINALLY here! An all day crop at My Creative Clubhouse!

WHEN: Saturday, July 25th
TIME: 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM
COST: $50.00 per person

Lunch will be included! Hurry, spaces are filling up, be sure to reserve YOUR spot today!


It has come to my attention that there is a misconception out there of what exactly My Creative Clubhouse is, so please let me clarify!

My Creative Clubhouse is a CREATIVE STUDIO, not a STORE! I teach classes & techniques, hold workshops, all day crops, etc. If anyone has any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact me regarding this issue. My cell phone number is 414-640-0412. I'd be happy to discuss this with anyone.

For those of you who are fellow Close To My Heart consultants, I AM NOT looking to steal your customers! I am doing nothing different than any of you do by teaching classes, workshops, etc only I PAY RENT to do so because I do not have the space or the family support to do this out of my home.

I have been in contact with corporate. I am NOT in violation of any corporate policies. If you would like to better understand what I am offering, and are local, please stop by! I am at My Creative Clubhouse Mon, Wed, Fri 10 am - 6 pm, Tues 5:30 pm - 9 pm, Thurs 10 am - 9 pm and Sat 8 am - 3 pm. I would be HAPPY to show you around, and even share my space with you for YOUR unit meetings, open houses, etc.

I hope this clarifies things for anyone who is wondering!

Due to the fact that My Creative Clubhouse is just opening it's doors at 10:00 am on weekdays, the morning classes that were previously scheduled for 10:00 am - Noon will NOW run 11:00 am - 1:00 pm to allow for some preparation time in the morning prior to class beginning.
I hope this does not inconvenience anyone. Thank you for your understanding!

So Very Excited!!

Alright, these pictures really stink, but I'm still excited!! I have started to learn how to use copic markers! OH MY GOODNESS, they are WONDERFUL! What's even more exciting is that after playing with them for the next month or so, I will head to Eau Claire, WI for a copics certification class so that I can come back and teach in My Creative Clubhouse!

This is so exciting for me. There are not many that are certified to teach with these copic markers, so I am THRILLED to be able to offer this. So, I better get off the blog and go do some more playing....have to get this right after all! I'll try to take better pictures of my next images!

AND the WINNER IS.......

Are you ready for this? I'm so excited to announce the winner of the Grand Opening gift basket......but first, let's thank my "baby" LucasJon for helping me to pull the winner! Isn't he adorable? And yes, those are all natural curls on his adorable little head (c0mpliments of Dad's genes, I have to PAY for mine when I want them!)

Okay, you have been patient enough! The lucky winner of the AWESOME gift basket is.........drum roll please......Maureen Rollins of Slinger!!!

Congratulations Maureen! I will be calling you soon just in case you are not yet following the blog! I hope you enjoy this wonderful basket full of goodies, well over $300.00 Retail Value!
