Heidi - I was out of town all last week so I haven't offered my congratulations for your lucky seven guy. What a gift to receive - another child to love and guide to adulthood. Everyone is so happy for you, yet feeling for you in the swirl of CRAZYBUSY life with 5 kids, two of them babies, and your work load. If I lived close I would come be a substitute granny to help out with the invisible jobs. And it's amazing all the things your older three will be able to do for you. You are an incredible creative visionary. Your ideas come flowing out of you like a waterfall and give you work to do, give you energy, take your energy, inspire people (many, many people), and bring people together. Yes, you have been given all kinds of gifts in great number and I am only one who thanks you for using those gifts - your life, your family, your amazing ideas, and your kind, patient, loving heart- to bring people together and make life better for everyone, not just yourself. This crazy time will actually fly by (I had 3 kids in 3 1/2 years and for awhile it was nothing but diapersdiapersdiapers, cryingcryingcrying, and eatingeatingeating- and I can hardly remember it), but for NOW, be gentle with your own self.

I am so excited about Scrap ETC! I live in Nashville and will totally be there!!! Tough not going to CHA! bummer. xoxo


I am so excited about Monique's 2008 event. I attended the event last year and it was truly amazing. She is so creative and inspiring. I am thrilled that you are teaching this year. I can't wait to see what projects you've come up with.


Love all the new products, saw them on scrabook.com and I was so excited. Cherries sooooooo cute love cherries.

Hey. I'm sorry that you won't be able to go to CHA. You DO get to stay home and look at that BEAUTIFUL BABY!!! Lucky you!

I've read your blog forever and never commented, but I got an email from a friend today and remembered your PINK CHRISTMAS thing and thought of you. It looks like lots of FUN! If you have time (busy woman) you should look at it! I'm signed up and cannot wait to figure out what I'm going to do!
LOVE your blog!
Check out pink Christmas HERE: http://www.pinkchristmas.blogspot.com/


You will be missed from CHA! This is my first time to go and I'm soooooo excited, but wish we could see you.

The Scrap Etc. event looks great! My friends and I have already reserved our room. Your class is the main reason I decided to attend this year, well and the fact that it will be spent with some fabulous ladies. I went to the 2006 event and was blessed to take your class, you were (and continue to be) such an inspiration. My "She" book goes everywhere with me. Thank you for being you!!

This is my first time at CHA!! I hate that you wont be there. I was so looking forward to meeting you. I can't wait to see all your new stuff!!! Hugs!


Congratulations on your new baby! I check your blog periodically and have to say I am in awe of your energy! I don't know how you deal with the pressures of deadlines and HAVING to find that creative spark and produce new product lines...oh and have a few babies along the way! You truly inspire me!!!


The baby is adorable, congrats again! I just checked out Scrap Etc. 2008 event and I so want to go. The best thing about it is I just recently moved about an hour away from Nashville - hubby is in the Army. He'll think I'm nuts but I've just got to find a way to get there, I'll need a break from the kids around that time since he's deploying in Sept. Thanks for sharing the information!


congratulations!!! my computer has been down...connor is beautiful...enjoy!

I am loving your new products!!! Of course I can't wait to get my hands on all of it! The Scrap Etc. event sounds amazing! I wish I could go...I'll have to see what I can work out with my hubby! Sorry you're missing CHA again! :)


Heidi, one of your YTR girls here! The Scrap Etc. event sounds AMAZING, I'm hoping to get there! Thank you so much for sharing the link, and being such an awesome inspiration to me.

Beautiful baby - lol, don't have to tell you to take LOTS of photos!

I am glad to hear you are staying home with your beautiful little bundle, but on the same page SO sad I don't get to meet you! It would totally be like meeting Oprah (did I mention I LOVE Oprah??) Guess I will be planning a trip to Nashville!!! I'd love to know where else you will be, maybe a stop will be a little closer to Illinois/Iowa???

i love your new stuff coming out. i can't wait to get and play with it. you do amazing job creating these products.


My awesome newest friend, Darlene, told me about the classes in Nashville and needless to say....I am going to do everything in my power to be there! Cannot wait! Hey, it will be an awesome April birthday present to myself!!

Kelly Goree

ahhhhh...missed you there at the show. it's not the same without you!


I'm excited to read about ScrapETC in Nashville but as a Nashvillian, I must tell you, it's called Opryland or the Opryland Hotel. Gaylord owns stuff all over...but nothing compares to the Opryland Hotel. So now you are in the know!

:) Congrats on the sweet baby!
