From My Heart

 To my cherished customers-

I have been with a company that I love for over 21 years. I have learned so much about paper crafting, made great friendships, and helped so many people celebrate relationships and preserve memories through handmade cards and scrapbooks.
The company will close in a few months. I have many feelings, but by far the strongest one is gratitude. I'm grateful to have had the influence of Close To My Heart in my creative work and feel so much admiration and gratitude for the company leadership over the years. I'm grateful to my customers who love the products and have supported me. I'm grateful for my uplines, my own team members, and so many fellow Consultants that I consider friends.
Thanks for the memories! Wow, did we have so much fun!

Paper crafting is part of the great joy in my life, and I will not let that slip away. I will keep you in the loop as to what my future plans are as they unfold. Cheers to the future!
