We're excited to have Patti joining us this month, so please give her a warm welcome in the comments section and/or visit her blog (click on her image).  Patti shares:
I love all things crafty but I'm especially fond of paper crafting because you can complete a great project from start to finish in such a short amount time. I've been in the financial industry over 30 years and  a Close to my Heart consultant for 17. My life has been incredibly enriched by the friendships that I have made through sharing this creative endeavor.

January Winners!

If you're some of our CTMH friends in the Northern Hemisphere, then you've probably been socked in with some cold wintry weather!  Maybe that's why we had such great participation in January?  You've been "stuck" indoors, crafting?  (We hope our Down Under Mates are enjoy a taste of summer while we shiver here up north!)  Whatever the reason, we have LOVED seeing all of your talent and your love of CTMH.

Each month, we like to recognize the amazing individuals who participated in every single challenge of the month.  We like to call them our H2H Addicts, and it's one addiction with no added calories.  In fact, you might even burn a few in your creative endeavors.  We'd like to recognize (in no particular order), our January addicts.  Congratulations to...
*Hansi
*Patti
*Diane
*Sue
*Jody
*April
*Katrina

Now we'd like to recognize our January Top 10, our favorite creations from the month.  You guys are really giving us a workout, because it was so incredibly hard to narrow down our choices to only ten for January!  Wow!

Old Is New:
Lori B.
Stamping Rules
Jody
Brenda

Tic-Tac-Toe:
Casandra

Birthday Color Challenge:

Aren't their creations fabulous?!?  Let me tell you, it is so hard to choose only 10 winners for the month!  You are ALL winners just by playing and sharing your CTMH love with us.

Each month we select one lucky participant to be our Top Chick!  This special artist is also invited to be an upcoming guest designer.  (If that's something you're interested in, all you have to do is play!)  The January Top Chick is...

CAS - Clean and simple

Are you ready for another great challenge?  This is our final one for this month! We are so ready to see what you all come up with for this week's challenge. Your challenge, should you decide to accept it, is to create a project that is CAS - Clean and Simple. 

What is Clean and Simple? To most it is minimalistic, little to no embellishments, less is more style. How do you define Clean and Simple? What is your style? Will this be a challenge for you, or is this right up your alley? We are excited to see not only your project but also your take on the Clean and Simple style.
