Welcome to my little corner in the world of papercrafting! About a year ago I became an independent Close to My Heart consultant,and thought this would be a great way to share my art. Most of my ideas are inspired by my wonderful family and friends. I'd like to dedicate this blog to them for their priceless friendships and memories.

CTMH Convention 2010 swap cards

     Close to My Heart hosts a convention every two years for their consultants.  This year it will be held in Washington D.C. and I am so excited to be able to attend!  One of the highlights of the convention (I am told) is to swap cards with other consultants.  I made three different cards,twenty five of each to swap.  I am sure I will come home with lots of cool cards to share with you:)  Convention starts July 7th...only a week to go.  Watch for pics and posts when I return.  The new product will be announced.  Can't wait!!

Father'sDay June 20th,2010

My Dad is hard working and still going strong at 74.  In 1965 he started our family business,a very successful Yamaha dealership.  Even during the tough times,he has managed to keep things running smoothly.  We now have three generations working side by side everyday,Dad,my son Jared,and I.  Over the past 27 years working with Dad,I have learned many things of which I am so thankful for.  Happy Father's Day Dad,I am proud of all that you have accomplished in your life!
