Where has Lisa been?

Hi everyone! I am so sorry that I have been MIA the past few weeks. My daughter was admitted to the hospital on March 27th and was just discharged last night. She is doing much better, but it was definitely a long two weeks for all of us. Because I needed to stay with her in the hospital, I was not able to update my blog, send out my monthly newsletter, respond to emails in a timely manner, and sadly, I was not able to design a project for our April Club. So, there will be no Club project this month. I apologize for not being as available as usual, but now that we are back at home, I will be trying to catch up with my CTMH duties as quickly as possible. 

One thing I am humbled to share is that I have received an incredible amount of love and support not only from my family and friends, but from the CTMH Home Office and sooooo many of my CTMH sisters and customers! We have been overwhelmed by the amount of encouragement and love we have received from my “CTMH family.” My daughter and I have received so many beautiful handmade cards filled with words of encouragement. (I will share some of them with you here on my blog this week.) It was a wonderful reminder of why I do what I do. Being a CTMH Consultant not only allows me to help people document their memories in scrapbooks, it also allows me to help people create beautiful artwork and cards that encourage and bless others and TRULY brighten their day. I am humbled to have been on the receiving end of those blessings over the past two weeks. 

I will be sharing CTMH’s great April promotions shortly and will be sending out my April newsletter soon. Thank you so much for your patience and thank you for the love and prayers that many of you have sent our way! My family and I are so grateful! xoxo

I will leave you with this beautiful card that I recently received from my talented friend and CTMH family member, Sheri Rottler. She used my favorite paper collection (which will be retiring at the end of the month) called Hello Lovely

The sweet sentiment she used is from the Here for You Card Kit. I’m not sure if you can see it in the photo, but she also used the Gold Shimmer Brush on the flowers and around the sentiment to add a subtle sparkle. Thank you Sheri for the beautiful card and the note of encouragement inside!


  1. I hope your daughter will be okay. Sorry to hear this news. That was very kind of everyone to send you loving thoughts, cards and prayers. Have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Thank you so much Casandra! Happy Easter! *Ü*

  2. What you've done for others came back to you. :-)
    2 Cor. 1:3-4

    1. Thank you for sharing that verse...

      "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God." 2 Cor. 1:3-4

      We are truly blessed! xoxo
