How It All Began

When my sibling and I were organizing my mother's 80th birthday party, I asked to create the invites.  I was not a paper crafter but I was determined to do something special for my mother.  I watched U-tube videos, took classes and connected with a wonderful creative group of women.  I was thrilled with the invite results.  What a fun journey this has been.  I have never looked back.  I hope that everyone takes small steps and moves forward on their creative journey.  I am here to help you in any way on your journey.

The Journey

While on my creative journey, I tried many different products but was really excited about the Close To My Heart family of products.  I love the quality of the products and how you can mix and match all the colors.  Close to My Heart products have made being creative fast, fun and easy.
