About Me

Hello All! I have always loved Art! In school(a long time ago...) My Senior Year included gym, wood shop, metals, government, art teachers helper for 2 hours & then Advance Ceramics! What a fun year! In 1998 I was introduced to Close to My Heart a Scrapbooking & Stamping company. I soon became a Consultant. I've always wanted to be an art teacher & now I get to get to share my love of crafting with my friends & family. I love what I do! I live in Mi. with my wonderful husband Jim & four busy children & our pretty puppy Missy! We are a very active bunch! All four kids play/played soccer on travel teams, my oldest also played Lacrosse & Jarred my youngest is in his third year of travel soccer. Good thing I like (Love) soccer! The kids have also played basketball, volleyball & ran track. We love the beach in the summer & to sled & snowmobile in the winter. My husband, father & father-in-law all collect & fix up antique tractors. We enjoy tractor shows & I enjoy the Flea Market.

I hope to inspire your artsy side & help you to create lasting memories through stamping & scrapbooking. It's so much fun to look through our scrapbooks or send out a card & get a call back from the recipient saying how much they enjoyed receiving a handmade card. Join me in creating artwork from the heart. Scrapbooking is so important, because babies grow up, time passes and memories fade. Keep your memories vibrant and close by preserving those precious moments you treasure in a album made by you!
