Hello fellow paper crafter! I am a stay-at-home mother of 3 boys which keeps me on my toes, but fills my heart with joy. I started scrapbooking when my eldest son was just over a year and I've been hooked ever since! I made the natural progression into cardmaking a couple of years ago and discovered a whole new world of fun things to play with (namely stamps!). I was introduced to Close to My Heart by my sister and have loved the products since laying eyes on them. In addition to being a CTMH consultant, I also offer crops and workshops. Please send me a message if you'd like to find out about the products or any of my upcoming events. I would love to help in any way I can. Happy Crafting!
