At Last, Fall is Here!

Greetings to my Friends and those who are visiting my blog for the first time - a BIG Texas welcome to you all!

Well, it's finally here - my favorite time of the year when the air becomes cooler with a crisp hint of sweater weather and fireplaces... leaves turning gorgeous colors almost overnight, and high school football and marching bands- it doesn't get any better! I can't help it - I'm just a Fall baby down to my bones...

One of the things I really like about Close to My Heart is the company's heart for others and commitment to making a better world, one child at at time...



  Who is Operation Smile™?

Every three minutes, a child is born with a cleft lip or cleft palate. Facial deformities like these can result in difficulty speaking, malnourishment, and social ostracism. Operation Smile, an international non-profit, organizes volunteers and resources to aid these children, their parents, and their communities by performing life-saving surgeries and advocating for sustainable healthcare systems.(For more information, click on the Operation Smile tab on the home page.

Happy August, my peeps!

Where did the summer go? It's almost time for school to start (can you smell the Elmer's glue yet??)

I was looking at my little grand-daughter's Kindergarden school supply list and couldn't believe the long list, very detailed as to what kind of markers, how many glue sticks to buy...and on and on...I can remember when we just needed a Big Chief tablet, some #2 pencils and a lunch box!!

OK now that I got THAT off my chest, let's have a cup of tea and let me show you some of the wonderful things this month from Close to My Heart!

 Every Tuesday during the month of August we will unveil a fresh set of retired Close To My Heart products and product bundles at a 50% discount! For this sale only, we’ll also only charge shipping and handling on the price paid instead of on the retail value of the items, the way we normally do. These items will only be available during the week they are launched while supplies last, so you’ll need to act fast! To check out this week's Specials
