Img_7528This is why I am getting the LOOKS from people! “that is a crazy lady” is what it looks like! And, in truth, not far off!  It’s hard to believe it’s the middle of june, time is FLYING by which is a good and bad thing! this weekend is our Creative Escape PREVIEW day! what that means is that all the individuals that will be serving as volunteers at the actual event, will be coming… as well as all the teachers… and we’ll be presenting all the classes… kind of like a dry run I guess.  Last year it was so helpful to make sure there were no glitches with the kits, power points, instructions and overall flow of the classes… as a teacher, it’s so awesome to have the chance to run through it once (like a dress rehearsal) to a very forgiving audience. Everyone in attendance will be signing a ‘non-disclosure’ and ‘confidentiality agreement’ so that we don’t have any leaks about what the projects are… you know how I feel about them being a secret. I love that. everything is looking good and I am excited to see how things play out!  I have been in the thick of photographing all the projects in detail, and they are so fun, so different and well done. it’s so FUN! And exciting to see things coming together beautifully! We just are finalizing the t-shirt design and exclusive paper designs… still lots to do!


I have been working on another fun project… I am not ready to share all the little details yet, but since we had such a great response to the little kits we threw together a couple months ago…we thought it would b fun to create a MONTHLY kit… we are in the midst of designing a support site for it… where you can see the kit, and ideas, tips and techniques that use the included product as well as purchase it! i will be providing more details as well as a photo of the july kit that will be available for purchase on July 1. Each month there will be a limited number of kits available, and when they are gone, they’re gone… (the kits are so cute…)  should be ready to unveil sometime next week!

i just spilled about a gallon of water all over my desk… that’s it… i guess i  am only allowed to have sippy cups from now on. sheesh.

    Can’t wait for more details on Club Heidi. I am definitely signing up for Creative Escapes next year – had a conflict with a vacation already planned for this year (bummer). You don’t look like a crazy lady – just a woman who loves her family and by the way cute as a button doing it! Have a great dry run today! Love, love, love you and your products!

    I get the whole looks thing… my girls are 16 months apart and I got all of the looks and comments. You look great! I can wait to see your new addition, Capri is growing up so quick and she is such a cutie!!
    I can’t wait for the monthly kits!
    I am sure they will be fantastic… just like all of your other fun goodies!

    So happy about the kit!
    Since CKU Albums (CT)I was hoping you would do something ALL HEIDI.
    I cannot afford to fly out for the Creative Escapes- although I would adore it!
    So this is sort of like the next best thing.
    Be well- you look great even that preggers!

    You are amazing. I just have to say that. Encouragement isn’t encouragement, unless spoken right? I’m in awe at how you can have the family you do, be in the state you’re in (you look GREAT BTW), and have all these new and fabulous things in the works. How do you do it? Thanks thanks thanks from your adoring fans! Can’t wait to see the goodies (baby and scrapping). 🙂

    Don’t you love having that baby shelf? It makes carrying the other one around a little easier–I think that extra kid weight on top helps make labor/delivery easier…at least that’s how it worked out for me. Beautiful picture. Sure wish I could be there to support the teachers at CE. I stayed here specifically to be available as a CEvolunteer. Last year you said you wanted to keep CE Local–wondering why you R flying others in when you have good help right here?

    Oh Beautiful Heidi! Love that you are blessed. You need not worry about what people are thinking. Look at that belly…. How cute you look w/ that precious Capri. I have a 16mo old Madigan Claire she’s our million dollar baby and boy do I wish I could have another one.
    We live on the East coast will you ever be bringing the classes this way? (saving for the next million dollar baby) 🙂
    I am excited to hear about the kits….just means

    Of course you are crazy! To have two babies at one time; that is absolutely nuts. The big important point, however, is that you aren’t dangerous. You are a loving mother married to a loving husband who is a loving father. You have happy children. That is viewed by nuts by many people in the world. But dangerous, never! You won’t have one single second to be bored so you can cross that worry off your list. What a great life your new son will have!

    I know those looks well nowdays. Got a few today as I was out with my 10 month old being 6 months pregnant. You look fabulous though! The toughest part of the whole being pregnant with a little one is the lifting thing- When Anna wants me to pick her up and hold her it gets to be a bit much. I can do it once in a while, but it’s like she can tell she’s going to have a baby brother soon and so she wants all I have to give right now.
    As for your monthly kit club, well that is super exciting! Can’t wait to see what you come up with! So fun!

    Thrilled to hear about a kit club. I’m really enjoying the Look Book and all of the products that I can find. Looking forward to more 🙂
    I agree with all of the other comments, you really do look great. Your children are so lucky to have each other and such great parents.
    Also, we replicated your art tray. My 5 year old has enjoyed it intermittenly, but I enjoy sitting down with it EVERY time. 🙂
    Good Luck with everything in the next few weeks! All the best to you!!

    heidi , you look beautiful!! I had 7 kids, yes 7, in 8 1/2 years…Hard to believe. But it was wonderful and i wouldn’t change it for the world. People looked at me funny and said some pretty things to me over the years, but it has been worth it all. It dose go by so fast, i wish i would have listened when people told me that. My kids are now…Andrew 23, Gabriel 22, Alexander 20, Nicholas 19, Jacob 18, Miranda 16 and Adalaine 15…..where did the time go…good luck, enjoy it all.

    ok Miss Heidi-you spill more water than any scrapbooking gal I know. You seriously gotta start using that tank of a water jug that they give you when you go home from the hospital. If you don’t have one, you need to go to Target and get one! By the time you fill up that tank with ice and whatever beverage you’re drinking, it’s too heavy to tip over! LOL

    Mind I kinda did the same thing with only 14 months between my two. I swear that was the only reason number 1 learned to walk so dang early, mama couldn’t and wouldn’t carry her anymore so it was either walk or go in the pushchair which at that stage she hated with a vengence. So walk she did!
    Good luck with the dry run for the Escape and for bubs arrival.
