I love all things beautiful. I believe that since the beginning of time God has had a plan to bring salvation and healing through Jesus Christ. Indeed, He does bring beauty from ashes and treasures from brokenness. I, on my best day, am far from who I want to be but by the grace of God I am not who I was yesterday. I'd love for you to join me on my day to day journey creating beauty with my children and preserving memories through paper crafting & digital scrapbooking.
I am proud to be called "wife", "love", and "honey" by my college sweetheart and life long "soul mate". He is a youth pastor giving me lots of opportunity to work with young girls and have tons of fun whether through a Bible Study, Crafting day or Movie/Game nights in my own home :). I am privileged to be called Mama by three beautiful little ones (ages 6, 5, and 3).
For as long as I can remember I have loved to scrapbook and make all types of crafts. In October of 2010 a good friend of mine invited me to a scrapbooking party. It was there that I was first introduced to Close To My Heart (CTMH). I have never heard of them before but after seeing their innovative truly clear and very easy to use stamps I was hooked. I came home and told my husband that I needed to sign up as a consultant just for the discount to save our budget :).
My intention was to only join as a hobbyist and get the great discount. However, the teacher in me loves to share what I am learning through the awesome (and FREE) on-line classes that are offered to CTMH consultants and so my monthly creative clubs began. I have so much fun creating beautiful pieces of artwork with paper - taking the broken and making treasured memories - and would love to show you how. It is my passion to help you preserve your memories and share your story!
My team (Creatively Redeeming Treasures) is the largest and fastest growing team in Southern Lancaster County. We have members from all over the United States. In 2012 I was awarded Close To My Heart's Rising Star award and Top Team Builder as a New Consultant. Since then I have continued to grow my team by sharing the finest quality crafting products with everyone and building deep friendships along the way!
Whether you are interested in getting a great discount, learning more through classes, starting a business of your own, or just want a friend to scrapbook with . . . whatever you are looking for You Are Welcome Here! I am thrilled to create beautiful treasures out of scraps - will you join me?
