Have you ever watched Supermarket Sweep? Oh, I so loved that show and just knew I would rock and roll it if ever given the chance to run through a store grabbing anything I could!!
Can you believe that Close to My Heart gave me an opportunity to run through the CTMH Warehouse to do exactly that!! Those were 3 of the most chaotic minutes I've ever experienced and you truly don't even realize what you're doing...you're just trying to grab, and grab, and grab!!!
I worked closely with my "advisory team" (my daughter Mandy and wonderful friend Lorri) to design the best possible attire for my shopping spree!!!
Check out the fabulous "video" Close to My Heart put together to commemorate my wonderful experience!! It was such a whirlwind, but the funnest experience EVER!!! I totally went in with a strategy to get embellishments, embellishments and embellishments...I could grab handfuls, and they'd be "light" despite hundreds of them!! But then they gave me a pretty cart, so I felt compelled to go for some paper and such...oh the joy and chaos! It was a BLAST!!!!
I'll admit, when you're running around like that...you have no clue what you're grabbing!!! Your hands are reaching into a box and about the time you register what it is you've grabbed, you've already grabbed it so might as well take it! (So I came home with 9 Snapease 12x12 Album Systems in my collection...so random!!) But you're not thinking, you're just grabbing!! I'm sure I ran past multiple Cricut Collections, but didn't see a thing...uggh!! But hmmmm, over $4,000 in embellishments, papers, Cricut mats, Desk Pads, and more...no complaints!!!
Afterwards, I was taken up to the Executive Conference Room (yes, inside the walls of Close to My Heart...so very exciting!! And created some layouts and cards designed for me by the Art Department...how lucky can a girl get?
All of this wonderful experience thanks so much to Close to My Heart...and simply by growing my team and helping them start their businesses successfully!! WOW!! Super awesome!!! Be sure to check out my website, as I'm giving away Cricut Artiste Collections and a Cricut Expression Machine in August...(even though I didn't get any during the shopping spree, LOL!!)
