Close To My Heart - Always on Trend

Card has damask, chair a fancy border and black brads
 Today, while I was in the grocery store, I did something I haven't done in a long while - I paused and picked up a paper crafting magazine.  I used to subscribe to a number of magazines, but between running out of room in my office and our CTMH Idea books and Teaching programs being so amazing, I found I really didn't need them anymore for ideas.  Like most consultants, I have spent the last few days pouring over the new Spring/Summer Idea Book.  One thing I puzzled about were a couple of the Stamp of the Month's, particularly February and May.  I thought, what's up with all the chairs???? and do we really need more damask stamps and fancy borders? more pennants?

Well....when I opened a couple of the magazines that showcase products from many companies, low and behold it was full of chairs, damask, fancy borders, pennants, dress forms, butterflies and ribbon flowers, just like our Spring/Summer Idea book!  SO - the first lesson learned is I really should at least peek every now and then at the trade magazines to see what the trends are, but also, I know I can trust CTMH to keep track of them and always bring us products that are on trend and up to date!
