About Me

Hi Everyone! Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog and and see what I'm all about. For as long as I can remember I've always been a scrapbook kind of gal. I started out pasting my friends elementary school pictures to construction paper and writing short descriptions of each person underneath. However, it wasn't until after the birth of my first child in 2003 that I truly found my passion for scrapbooking. When I first started I had no clue what I was doing. I would literally spend my entire lunch hour combing the aisles of my local scrapbook store searching for the items that I thought I needed only to get it home and realize it didn't match my photos or the cardstock I bought the week before. I was really frustrated and totally overwhelmed! I was buying items that would just sit under my bed never to be used. Then, when I found the right products I would sit for hours trying to design a layout I liked.

Fast forward to 2008 when I was first introduced to Close To My Heart via an on-line meet-up group. As soon as I saw the products I fell in love. Everything co-ordinated! Patterns matched and accessories matched. It was my ah-ha moment! Then, to top it all off I was shown the How-To Books. Let me tell you this changed my whole scrapbooking life! I stopped agonizing over my layouts and simply started following the patterns in the books. In my creative life I now live and breathe the Faster, Simpler, Easier philosophy of CTMH!

I hope as you read my blog you find that it educates you, entertains you, but most importantly I hope it inspires you to continue doing what you love! This is my passion, my therapy and my legacy to my family. I hope you contine to follow me and support me on my creative journey.

Now, stop reading and lets get those memories scraped and gorgeous cards done!!!
