A little note from Ceci:
For my senior project, I am hosting a scrapbook crop to raise money for the Stein Education Center. The Stein Education Center is a California-certified nonpublic school providing special education services to students between the ages of 5 – 22 with histories of chronic and severe social, emotional, behavioral, and academic challenges. My family friend, Alexander Stroud, goes here and I would really like to raise some money for the school.

Here is a picture of our friend Alexander Stroud at their annual talent show.  This is a very special school.  It has and will continue to improve Alexander's quality of life through age 22.

Calling all planner addicts.......Close To My Heart exclusive bundle is now available through December 31st!!!


Jennifer Lundy Carmichael's photo.

I can't tell you how excited I am about the brand new Close To My Heart planner!!
While the rest of the world is using digital means to track their calendar, I like the good old-fashioned paper and a good pen (the pen is essential with a pretty planner!).

Let me tell you a little about this system:

It all starts with a beautiful black 3-ring binder album called the Everyday Life album.  The planner pages packet comes with 154 planner pages, 12 monthly tabbed dividers, a pocket folder page, that pretty page finder you see in the photo and four sheets of stickers!

To make things even easier, you can also select a roller stamp for your label stickers!

Why call it Everyday Life?

Because this can hold so much more than calendar pages!!  Another matching packet is a set of 60 beautiful double-sided for journaling, note-taking, doodling - anything you wish!  I will love using these for artwork notes!

The Everyday Life washi tape will help you attach memorabilia quickly and easily!

And if that wasn't enough, Memory Protectors can be purchased as well.  I love that!!  I can store pictures right there in my planner!! Or I can grab a Picture My Life card for a pocket.  What an awesome way for any busy person to keep track of the good things in life.  Everyday life.

Order your planner on my website.  I know you are going to love it!!
