Featuring something VERY Special from ME for today’s extra bonus giveaway and fun shopping goodies for the holidays!  

When you shop with Close to My Heart or become one of Megan Elizabeth’s Team members (Precious Gem Crafters) There are some amazing things in store. You’ll learn ALL about a LOT of them as I share my full story on December 12th at 9:30pm eastern time (and yes it will be recorded, but for those there live, you can chat with ME, ask Questions and Win prizes just for being THERE – don’t miss that!)

I have a special bonus giveaway today for this and I also am going to be giving away something not yet talked about or listed – but it will be a 1 year membership to a private new website launching this month.  Here’s the thing, anyone who joins My Close to My Heart team will get this bonus membership for FREE as long as you’re a consultant – I can’t WAIT to share more details! I KNOW I have you ALLL intrigued!  The biggest questions I get with is “how did you get started?”, “how can I make money crafting/blogging?”, “how do I start a blog?”, “how do you stay motivated?”, “where do you get your inspiration from?” – I’m going to be answering ALL these questions as so many more over the next few months and I really want to give everyone the tools and opportunities to HELP you achieve the life you most desire!

You do not have to belong to ANY kind of home-based business (I won’t make you at all, but I’ll HELP you be successful if you desire it!), you do not have to own a Blog (but I can give you the tools to get started with one if you’re ready!), You do not have to want to sell anything (as a matter of fact I encourage people NOT to be sales people only be a better person!), the Stories and New Site I am going to share with you, is all about encouraging the life YOU desire and being given the tools to get there and get there quickly!  So many times we don’t even know where to start, or feel it’s impossible – I am proof it is ALL possible, even when you feel you’re at your lowest, you can overcome and I want to show you how and give you as many tools as you need to live the life you were meant to live!

I asked on Facebook just the other day this question:

Do you dream of changing your life??? What do you feel needs to change in order to LIVE that dream??? Money? kids? Time? Purpose? Please share!!

Here are some of the replies I got:

  • Deborah Phelps Bondeson Matthews Well, money wouldn’t hurt-would help to dispel some of the worry about things here-and could move on to other things-but think with me the main thing is fear and not trying-just moving ahead! Now I’m a lady in my early 60’s so the dreams I had when I was younger are gone-but I do think God has something planned for me even now-and am sure that plan is to serve him in a bigger way-and some parts of me are so ready-but then I have to overcome the fear of getting out there and doing!!!
  • Traci McConnachie- Kendrick Money better time management. Knowledge as well. I’ve been trying to get a non profit organization off the ground and it’s over whelming
  • Lisa Edwards Please pray for me. I need motivation. Pain and depression get the best of me most of the time. I know God has a plan I just can’t seem to find it.
  • Jenn Kulak Motivation not on you list but since July I’ve loss any and all motivation. I’m getting things done but I’m half fasted it. I’m trying to change it but more events just keeps me down.
  • Amy Saxon To LIVE my dream life, I need money a lot of time and a whole lot of organization
  • Whitney Cantrell Time – I wish that there was more time in the day to spend with my family, my 4 boys, and to help others. I am studying to be a nurse and it seems that study time is running my life right now. I keep telling myself only another year and a half and I will be done. Then I can spend the quality time with my family and help those who need it.
  • Teresa Minor Anything that will help me be a better mother. I want my sons to be good men with great jobs and treat women with respect.
  • Linda Cote Khoury My life is perfect right now, I have a beautiful family and I count my blessings every day
  • Linda Krenzer Norman My weight. I have recently been diagnosed with sleep apnea and the CPAP machine has changed my life! I am sleeping much better and dropping weight that wouldn’t budge before this! Now to keep eating right and exercising!
  • Sandi Smith I also need motivation. When my Dad passed away on July 29, I stayed with my Mom for 2 1/2 months to get all the legal stuff done plus spend time with her. Since I’ve been home, my own grief has hit hard and I just want to curl up in bed. My own health issues have made the last four years very difficult but I was starting to step back into life. I seem to have lost that motivation and everything is overwhelming. I started making my Christmas cards but now I don’t care to even touch them.
  • Donna VanDermark To put God back in our lives and stop people taking it off everything, now it is pepsi cans. What is happening to us.
  • Samantha Kania Good health- if I had this I could make money, foster children and fulfill my purpose
  • Rhiannon Hirchert Money for sure.. I have kids, nobody has enough time, and my kids are my purpose… So money
  • Carrie Buettner-Kreber Money. I wish I could volunteer at the local hospital, memory care facility and at my sons school but have to work! If I could just win the lottery!!!! Lol I too wish I could lose weight but know hard work will pay off eventually!
  • Janet Bell Block time/weight management and motivation.

What are some of YOUR Answers?  Will you leave it in the comments for me???

Pam is Happily married for the last 41 years to a wonderful guy with two grown children and while she’s here in Wisconsin, she became a Florida “Snow Bird” this past year and anxious to spend more winters away from the cold! (I don’t blame her!) She is a Christian and I love working with her on these awesome, fun nails! Win some awesome designs from ME to show off your hands this holiday season! Shopping from November 29 – December 10!
What are Jamberry Nail Wraps???? They are an innovative vinyl wrap that comes in a variety of almost 400 designs. The difference between Jamberry & those that you see in stores is that Jamberry wraps are heat activated through the use of a blow dryer or heater. This heat activating method will give you a watertight seal that will last up to 2 weeks on your fingers and 6-8 weeks on your toes (or longer!). They can be applied to short nails, long nails, curvy nails, acrylics, gels, shellac, toddler nails! They do not peel, fade, chip as regular polish will. You can swim, hot tub, wash the dog/kids/dishes, garden ~ LIVE YOUR LIFE & still have a perfect mani/pedi! They are Chemical Free and do not dry out like those you can find in stores.One sheet of wraps has 18 wraps on it. The backing is clear so that you can hold the wrap over your nail to ensure proper sizing. Each wrap can be cut into at least 2 pieces to cover 2+ nails just from 1 wrap. There are 9 different sizes on each set so that EVERY nail from your big toe to your pinky finger can be covered!Here’s the bottom line: instead of sitting for 1-2+ hours at a salon while someone is painting designs on your nails, then waiting for them to dry and having them chip away within days ~ you can have salon perfect nails in the comfort of your own home that will LAST! You can keep the leftovers for later or share/swap them with friends! And ALL at the fraction of the cost of what you will pay elsewhere!!


L’Bri with Karlee G.

My favorite line of all natural Aloe Based Skin Care Products! You’ll never see water or alcohol as a main ingredient with L’Bri and it has made all the difference in the world for me! Perfect gifts for the cold winter dry skin and heals that sun burned skin up from the summer time! Karlee is even giving away a fantastic moisturizer that I use daily and its fan-freakin-tastic! Karlee is a Mom to one precious little 3 year old girl, hubby to a hard working man and she is the soon to be Aunt of the new baby on the way – supporting her home based business with a product that will change your skin for the better couldn’t be a neater opportunity!

Close to My Heart with ME

Can’t get enough scrappy goodies and the best thing to shop is the Cricut Cartridges for gifts this year! Absolutely love those completely universal cartridges that I go to for just about everything and the coordinating stamps make me swoon! You all know me so I won’t go into the details, but the reason I started with Close To My Heart is for the Cricut Cartridges and to start a downline team of women who were wanting to change their lives, enjoy crafting more and earn and extra income for their home! To me, that is part of what being a Proverbs 31 woman is all about! CTMH has fantastic values, creates products I can truly get behind (especially since the Megan Elizabeth line is discontinued) and offers an opportunity for Moms to stay at home, craft, teach, and have fun earning a little extra cash on the sides. Joining my team I will personally help you succeed, set goals, train you on unique ways to be seen in this business and much more! SPECIAL Live Event coming December 12, 2013 so mark your calendars and don’t miss that! Get your hands on this stuff NOW and from Nov 29 – December 10 there is going to be a HUGE Giveaway bonus with this fun Black Friday Feature!

    I dream of improving my health and finally getting some answers from my doctors so that I can move forward with my life. Megan, I have to thank you for sharing your talent and yourself with all of us. There have been days that your videos are the only thing that helped me keep my sanity. Thank you Megan!

  • Lynn Cromrich

    I dream of a better life for my grandchildren than I foresee right now. I hope they have all the opportunities that I had and more. I also dream of a better world with peace being at the forefront and an end to poverty.

  • linda statham

  • Karyn

    I am hoping for a successful surgery (foot fusion) – wheelchair bound will give me some more time to create. Thanks for the chance to win! Good luck to everyone.

  • Andrea

    Hi Megan,

    I love the idea of using a cd case for a large stamp. Being from the NW I have to point out that it is good way to “go green.” For someone who does not own a large acrylic block and like myself has dozens of unused cd cases lying around, it is a great way to reuse. Great layout improvisation. Thanks.


  • Teresa Luck

    You can also use a big shot or cuttlebug cut plate. Just wish all my family are healthy and lots of money. I would love to be able to just go to town and buy christmas for a few familys.

  • Cindi Wisdom

    Meghan, thank you for sharing your talent with all of us. I hope everything is going well with your pregnancy. I can’t wait to see the Beautiful Baby Boy. I have 3 boys and Boys have a Big Part in my Heart. I wouldn’t know what to do with a girl! Lol.
    Have a great weekend.
    Cindi Wisdom

  • Tammy Hancock

    I don’t do scrapbooks but I love the way the one you did came together so fast and looks very pretty. I have thought of getting into making scrapbooks for my grandchildren. I have 4 granddaughters and 1 grandson which was born November 7th. Can’t wait to see your new bundle of joy.

    Thanks Megan
