About Me!

I originally joined the company WAY back in 1996 when it was still known as Dozens of Terrific Stamps, or DOTS.  I was a consultant for almost 8 years, but then the Air Force moved us 4 times in 5 years.  I was also homeschooling our daughter and I had to let my business go.  I missed it so much!!

Fast forward to 2013…my husband left on a one-year deployment in May and our daughter left for her freshman year of college in August.  I was teaching middle school English, which kept me busy, but I wasn’t really having any fun at home by myself.  I really wanted to get back into papercrafting and I knew from experience that Close to My Heart has the BEST products available in the industry.  I got a catalog and quickly realized that I HAD TO HAVE IT ALL!!  LOL  The easiest way to do that, of course, was to re-sign as a consultant.  Best decision I ever made!

I love teaching people how to tap into their creativity while creating cards, home decor items, jewelry, and preserving those precious memories.  Let me show you how!
