I had the absolute (oh, my gosh, I can’t believe it!) pleasure of touring Close To My Hearts home office while at Convention this July with all the other girls and guys who attended US Convention 2017 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
It was amazing!
I would love to share with you some of my favorite photos I took while on tour…
After a morning of super creative sessions at convention we hopped onto our air conditioned bus. The weather was hot, hot, hot in Salt Lake City so this cool ride was welcomed and with such gorgeous views, the ride out to Pleasant Grove, about 30 minutes from the city, was a enjoyable. Months before convention we could book our bus trip out to Home Office and we yes, we had a ‘bus tickets’ …you can be sure I’ll be scrapbooking this keepsake! When we arrived we were divided into 3 groups for ease of moving around to see everything in a timely manner. I couldn’t believe I was really here!
I love the Close To My Heart mission statement.
This was on the wall when you entered the front foyer.
Welcome to the Art Studio!
Woah! I really did take a moment to take it all in as this is
‘where all the magic happens’!
Next stop along our tour was Jeanette’s office, workroom and meeting room.
Stella rooms to be able to walk through and be in (pinching myself at this stage to see if I was alive and that this was real!) LOL
ps…if you look closely you’ll see some fun new product coming our way.
The artwork around the home office was so beautiful, everywhere you looked there was something to ohh and ahh over. Of course you could tell it had all been hand made with love AND new product which will all be released 1st August!
We entered the warehouse where they pack orders and where they make our beloved acrylic stamps. We received our convention bags here and watched a video on how our stamps are packaged …very interesting!
As we walked out from the warehouse there were covers from all the Catalogs, Annual Inspirations and Seasonal Expressions since Close To My Heart was born. Anyone who knows me know I can’t resist a photo with something new and this is the latest cover which will be released in August 2017.
From the warehouse back out to the front foyer, back where we started our tour.
I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. As I said at the beginning, it was amazing!
Now it’s time for me to get crafty – working on my handmade gifts for my NEW Product Launch Party next week.
