I have always loved scrapbooking…even in the old days. Being exposed to current day scrapbooking took me to a whole new level. I went to a cardmaking event and thought “Oh I’ll never get into stamping. I just want a few stamps and ink to make tags for gifts.” That’s when it all started. Many of my friends have said “You should sell the stuff.” I thought it would be fun but with a full-time job, never thought much more about it. Until Close to my Heart came up with their recent promotion to sign on. It didn’t take too much coaxing from my consultant (in fact, she didn’t coax at all; she cheered me on). So here I am diving into selling a product that I love and seeing where it will take me. Definitely learning new & exciting things and can’t wait to share them with YOU!
