So Thankful

I am happy and proud to say that yesterday I held my first ever fundraiser.  And it was a success.  I was able to raise money for the Douglass Community Center while enjoying an entire day of scrapping and gabbing.  I cannot thank the attendees enough for their support, not only for the Community Center, but also for me.  I also have to thank my donors of gifts, for the king size quilt(owned by Pattie Bartell who also donated some gift cards for JoAnn's), and the Hair Cuttery in Landsdowne (in particular Mandy Byrd the salon leader for the wonderful hair care products).  

But there is not much time for resting as I have been asked to participate in another fundraiser in mid April.  I hope to be holding many such events in the coming months, and will hope to see your smiling faces to help your local community.

Why I do what I do.

People often ask me once they find out that I love to craft and create, "What is the one project you are most proud of?" My answer is always the same, "My five kids!" They are the reason I have been scrapbooking for so many years. I want to be able to capture their childhood through pictures, and evoke emotion through the art of scrapbooking. I found a wonderful company, Close To My Heart (CTMH), that allows me to do just that. Their breathtaking line of paper packs with coordinating embellishments and stamp sets take the guess work out of scrapping, and they are a huge time saver. And let's be honest, when it's fun it's easier to get a project done. Once I discovered CTMH, I decided to become a consultant so that I am better equipped to share the joy I feel when preserving memories that will be passed on for generations to come.

Another benefit to using Close To My Heart products is the versatility they offer. Not only do you get to create and protect your precious memories by scrapbooking, but you can also use the paper packs and embellishments to create personalized and unique cards as well as sprucing up your home decor. I love having the ability to transform a simple photograph into a piece of art I am proud to display in my home or give as a gift to a special person.

It is not the amount of 'creative talent' but rather the level of interest and passion you possess that will determine what we are capable of accomplishing together. Let me show you how simple, quick and most importantly fun scrapbooking and paper crafting can be.
