RB-Blog Hop: What We Love!

Welcome to our Blog Hop ... so pleased you could join us!

For this hop, we're sharing  a little about ourselves and what we love about being 
Close To My Heart Consultants.

You likely came over from Brenda, who, I might add is a phenomenal team leader and one of the reasons I joined CTMH nearly 4 years ago. Brenda reflects what we love most about this company. Warmth, inspiration, paper love, creativity, and accomplishment. For that, we are all blessed to have her as a friend, a mentor, and a leader. 

As for me, I used this hop assignment as an opportunity to create a "10 Things I Love" page using  fun cuts from our Art Philosophy and Artbooking cartridges. I've been wanting to use these cuts  ever since I laid eyes on them. {So many cuts. So little time!} 

There are oodles of reasons why I love being a CTMH Consultant. 
Here are just a few, in no particular order:

A little bit about me: 

I work full-time plus managing our family business. Cars, truck, trailers. Far from glamorous, and no creativity required. I've been snapping photos for what seems like all my life, scrapbooking for over 20 years, and joined Close To My Heart in May 2011. Yep! Fuel and oil by day. Paper and ink by night. That's me!

I'm able to manage a small but successful Close To My Heart business by utilizing online tools, social media, and offering workshops at retreats, craft clubs, and day crops. I'm always happy to share what I do and the passion I have for memory keeping. Close To My Heart has given me the opportunity to run at my own speed, grow as a paper crafter, and support my efforts every step of the way. It's been an awesome four years and I look forward to many, many more!

If you have any interest (even a little bit) in joining Close To My Heart, I encourage you to contact me. I'd be happy to answer and questions. Take a look at the fabulous kits Close To My Heart has to offer New Consultants this month:
