Westerville, OH

Do you love scrapbooking, card making and paper crafting as much as I do? If so, you have come to the right place! I have been married for 14 years and have 2 boys ages 13 & 11. I have been in the scrapbooking business for over 19 years & am still loving it! Eight short months after joining Close to My Heart I found myself with a team of 40 and had promoted to Director. If you're interested in joining my team, contact me and we can discuss your options - whether you want to be a hobbyist or build a successful business. If you want to get our products for free, lets chat about hosting your own gathering. Maybe you just want to buy our products...if so, click on "Shop" above and join my online gathering of the month. Whatever you choose, I am available to support you along the way!
