OK WOW! This was a SURPRISE!  I was reading through Comments and came across this comment from Nuchi Draiman! I’ve re-posted it below and it’s a little long, but I wanted to make sure you got to see all the details (here is a link to her original comment). My comments and today’s video are after the comment.

 GIVEAWAY and online Thanks and Get Well Party for Megan Elizabeth!

Guys—let’s do something special for Megan to say thanks and cheer her up while she’s going through this ordeal.

Thanks to Megan, I recently became a Close To My Heart Independent Consultant. I had watched Megan’s video showing the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, which you can only get from CTMH, and seeing Megan use it convinced me I had to have it. It’s the best Cricut cartridge ever! In March I became a consultant, planning on just using the discount for myself (which they allow you to do) and to get the Art Philosophy cartridge (LOVE IT!), but here’s my chance to let all of you benefit and give Megan a “thank you gift” as well!

I am setting up a Megan Elizabeth online Gathering, and arranging it so that Megan gets all the Hostess gifts! The more people buy, the bigger the hostess gifts Megan will receive!

It’s a great time for this, because in June there’s a special STAMPAGANZA sale going on. With any purchase of 2 stamp sets, you get a 3rd one (the lowest priced set you order) FREE! I’m told they haven’t had a sale like this for at least a couple of years!!

P.S. Don’t miss the “Life is Tweet” Stamp of the Month—only $5 with any purchase of $50 or more!

Now for the GIVEAWAY…

I will be giving away over $50 worth of stamping and scrapbooking materials! You could be the lucky winner!
So here’s what you do:

1) Go to my website, which is
2) Click on the JOIN button next to where it says “Thanks and Get Well to Megan Party!”
3) Look through all of the wonderful Close to My Heart products, and order anything you want.
4) You will receive 1 entry to the Giveaway for making a purchase—no matter how large or small.

Bonus entries:
1 bonus entry for every $50 you spend–1 bonus entry for spending $50, 2 for $100, etc. If you see you’re about to spend over $150, email me at and arrange to have your own online party (see next paragraph).

5 bonus entries if you have your own qualifying online gathering (sales over $150, at least 2 “guests” besides the hostess). You will get great hostess gifts of your choice as well!

Arrange for your friend to host an online party and you will both benefit! Your friend will get 5 bonus entries for hosting the party and you will get 2 extra bonus entries too! 1 bonus entry for posting about this Giveaway on Facebook, Twitter, or your own blog. (Post on all 3 and get 3 entries!) You must make a purchase on my website to get these bonus entries.

Be sure to email me at and let me know how many entries you have earned and what you did to earn them to make sure I don’t miss anything.

Don’t wait! This party will be over in a few days!! This Giveaway is from me and not from Close To My Heart or Megan Elizabeth. You can only participate on my website at

Good luck winning the Giveaway and a very heartfelt Get Well and Thank you to Megan!! Our thoughts and prayers are with you!!

    Megan, First thing that I noticed was you was working in your floor. LOL…..I do the same thing. I have a whole craft room that you can’t get into. My kitchen table sometimes I work on but don’t like to for when the Grand babies come over.

    I really HOPE you start feeling better soon, for you, so you can do what you love. I don’t post often, But
    I do read all, unless I missed it.
    By they way you look great without makeup.
    I love the scrabble necklace!!
    Praying that you feel better soon. AndreaA

  • Patti

    Hi Megan, glad you checked in with us. We don’t care about no makeup, we care about you. I am praying for you. Even when you aren’t feeling well, you are smiling, very inspiring. Take care.

  • Tina Martin

    I have been following your blog and pn facebook for a couple of years now. I am so inspired by some of your work. I hope start feeling better very soon.

    It was great to see you today, Megan! BTW, you look fabulous without makeup!!! Your projects for CHA look wonderful and would be very fun to try and make. Thanks for taking the time and energy to share them.

    I continue to pray for you every day. I hope that you are feeling better with each passing moment! 🙂

  • Brenda

    Hi Megan, I’m sorry that you are going through such an ordeal with your teeth. Dental work is no fun at all. I pray that you get well soon and that the work goes off without a hitch on your teeth. You look beautiful without any make up, and no we don’t care that you don’t have any on-it is you that we care about and when you don’t feel well you don’t want to bother with makeup. I don’t post comments often, but it doesn’t mean that I don’t try and keep up with you and your blog. I pray that you can get back to the things that make you happy very soon my friend. Hang in there! You make me hang in there and I love that you tell us there is always something to appreciate about everyday. That is so true! Just get yourself better and don’t worry about us, we will be here waiting for your return and praying for you. Loved the jewelry you are making, good luck at CHA-not that you need any luck. Big hugs-Brenda

  • Sharon

Praying for you, that your health will improve, & that you will start feeling better soon, and remember that God is always with you.

  • Ellen ♥ Cardmonkey

    Oh dear sweet Megan — Not only are you beautiful inside and out as God made you (at birth or through incident), but like the movie that is out now, you are “BRAVE”. You’re not going to let a 3-hour doctor’s appointment deter you from giving us an update and showing us your charming Scrabble and Sparkle Lightz jewelry. Thank you for caring enough about US during your trials to keep us updated and to continue to inspire both from a crafty perspective, but more importantly, from a LIFE perspective. Warm hugs across the SMILES for you! ♥ Much love and respect ♥ from CardMonkey (Ellen).

  • Cynthia

    My thoughts and prayers are with you! You look great! Wish I looked that good without makeup! Lol ! Thanks so much for the video!

  • Stephanie Brown

    Megan, I’m so sorry you’re feeling bad, but I’m glad you are able to at least be up and making your videos. I kive the jewelry. What is the little link on the back of your scrabble piece and where do you get them? I’ve tried Hobby Lobby and Michaels with no luck.

    I hope you’re feeling much better soon!

  • Vera Conner

    I hope you feel better soon. It was great to hear from you, even though you aren’t up to par. And you look super without makeup. Just feel better soon.

  • Liz in PA

    Dear Megan, Bless you! The attitude of your heart is an encouragement and a testimony to the Lord’s goodness. You are right–life is hard at times, but we really can find things in which to rejoice and give thanks-even in the midst of the tough times–especially that the Lord is with you and is your constant companion. SO sorry your are hurting and having to trudge through this difficult time. Be encouraged by this truth about the Lord! love, Liz in PA:

    “He gives strength to the weary
    and increases the power of the weak.
    Even youths grow tired and weary,
    and young men stumble and fall;
    but those who hope in the Lord
    will renew their strength.
    They will soar on wings like eagles;
    they will run and not grow weary,
    they will walk and not be faint. –Isaiah 40:29-31

    • facsmom

      I think you could call this verse my life verse. WOW to our CTMH sister for her cheerful spirit and the events she is running. We are praying for you, Megan.

  • Peggy Whisenhunt

    Thanks for sharing even if you are feeling poopy. I hope everything goes well with the surgeon and we understand if you cannot post much right now. We are patient crafters and will wait for your full recovery and posts about the CHA newest stuff. Take care. We are here for you. lol

  • Debby J

    Megan, hope you feel better. Crafting always makes you feel better!! I have been making the scrabble tile jewelry for some time now and found the diamond glaze works great for attaching anything to the tiles. It protects great too!! Prayers for a quick recovery.

  • Carol Read

    Hey girl….great info and inspiration. Thanks for thinking of us and working hard to keep us in the loop while you are going through this trying time. Such dedication! 🙂 THANK YOU! Hope this passes soon for you! You are truly an inspiration to so many!

  • Linda W

    Thanks for taking a moment to say hi to us. Hope this ordeal will over soon for you. I know what it’s like when you dealing with bone loss and infection. It took me almost a year just to replace a molar (who’s roots had a crack in three places) with an implant. I am sure you have a wonderful surgeon and a team of dentists working with you to get you back on your feet. Be well soon. God Bless.

  • KitnM

    Megan – you are sharing your heart and talents and we are thankful that you are sharing even while you are out of sorts. Praying for strength and healing for your body; I am sure that you are physically worn out because your body is fighting to heal. Thank you for thinking of all of us as you go through this. We want you to feel better soon and be completely healed! He is always taking care of you…having you miles and miles from home, which is an adjustment, and surrounding you with extended family who can help you through. Lifting up the surgeon and all those working on you. May the Lord of comfort and healing touch you today!

  • Sandra Joy

    Dear Megan: You look just fine without makeup! Non of us really care, we just care about you! Our thoughts and prayers are with you for a very speedy recovery! Sending big bear hugs your way, Sandra Joy

  • Michelle

    It’s good to see you. You look awesome without make-up! Keep your chin up. It can get discouraging sometimes if you’re down and out for very long. I’ll continue to pray for you. Thanx for the tutorial. Michelle

  • Barbara Escalante


    I was glad to hear from you. I went through the same thing a few years back. My daughter was bouncing on the bed and knocked her head into my front tooth. It cracked the root. I few years later, I had that fixed and then had to have the same surgery you are having on my jaw and we were moving house the same day I came out of surgery. No fun. My heart goes out to you and I wish you a great recovery. God be with you and give you the strength to get through it. Remember, it will be over.

    • Ann Marie B.

      You will get through this and be as terrific as ever . I enjoy watching your videos and DVDs. Sometimes I simply play them for inspiration and motivation while I iron! 🙂 God bless.

  • Marissa

    Feel better soon! You look great and attitude is VERY important when one is sick, so as long as you are positive, all will be well! Let us know if there is anything we can do for you and we will all be there to support you in any way we can, even if it is just prayer – but prayers can move mountains!!!!

    Just wanted you to know that I am thinking and praying for you, you are such an inspiration to us all, craftwise and spiritually. You are teaching me to share my faith more and more.
    God bless, thinking of you here the other side of the pond (is that what you call the atlantic in the US)?
    Take care

  • LeeAnn from NC

    Megan, I always enjoy your videos. They’re like a visit from a special friend. Praying for your procedures to go well and for you to feel better soon. Your jewelry pieces are really cute. I hope you’re feeling well enough to have a great time at CHA and hope you make some product sales to lots of companies, big and small. It would be awesome to be able to find your Paper Layerz at Michaels, Walmart, of even on HSN, maybe in a kit with your ink edgers and some sparkle lights !

  • Sandra VanWoerden

    You are such a sweet heart and a cutie (especially all natural). Thanks for taking a moment to share and video your moment. I am still praying all goes well. We love you bunches.
    Isn’t that awesome what Nuchi is doing. SO COOL!! Can’t wait to see how well you rack up.
    Love getting inspiration from you.
    Just be sure to take care of yourself. YOUR HEALTH IS FIRST…no health-no you! I know when all the procedures are done and you are back in full swing, you’ll look back and think it was not so bad. Well worth getting it all done. Your health will be so much better too. Surprising how much the health of our teeth effect other parts of our bodies.
    Thanks for sharing your jewelry.. they are Awesome, as always.
    Get some rest and enjoy the moments of downtime when you can.
    Happily Scrapbooking & Crafting My Memories~Sandra V.

  • Ellen M

    Love the video but I love your perseverance more! I can’t say I wouldn’t be hiding under the covers if I were in your shoes. Again you continue to inspire us all! Hope you feel better soon and your “teeth” issues are resolved! 🙂 Hang in there!

  • Cindy Dunedin

    Megan, So happy to see your beautiful face. (No makeup needed) Your heart and soul are more precious than words. We are all praying for you and have faith that all will be well!! God Bless you and looking forward to seeing what CHA has to bring us!!
