Host A Gathering in September


School is well underway and as we settle into the new school year and the weather starts to cool a bit it would be a good time to invite a few friends to your home and host a Close To My Heart Gathering. Contact me and I will help you pick a theme. How about Mexican-chips and salsa and a spicy make and take project!, Chocolate-yummy treats and a smooth, chocolatey brown theme project…yum!, or think about Autumn-and hot cinnamony cider and a handmade notecard embellished with Fall colored stamped leaves. You can even think up your own theme and I will work with you to coordinate the theme!

I have several dates available in September. Want to do a daytime Gathering? Available dates are Friday Set. 23, Monday Sept. 26 or Thursday Sept. 29.

Evening dates available are Thursday Sept. 22, Thur. Sept.29, or Friday Sept. 30.

And if your Gathering sales are $150 or more you earn Hostess rewards of select product items!

Give me a call or e-mail me or comment on the blog and let me know when you want to schedule your Gathering! I will work with you to make it a fun time for all!
Have a Beautifully Creative Day!
