Welcome to my "Virtual Home"!

Hello! I'm Rebecca and as you have probably already figured out, I love getting crafty.  I live in Arnold, MO (just south of St. Louis) with my husband of 21 years and our spoiled pup, Calla. I'm also Mom to our daughter who is busy with her college studies.


I have always loved crafts as a hobby. However, for most of my adult life, my occupations relied more on my left side of my brain as a math teacher, and more recently, an actuary. During that time, I had periods where life was so busy that I didn't have any time to create. But I learned that I am happier and healthier when I carve out time to "get my craft on".  


In November 2010, I ordered the Close To My Heart consultant kit online with the purposse of getting great deal on the beautiful scrapbooking paper. Just before Thanksgiving, I got my box of crafty goodies in the box. I spent the holiday creating and learning. I discovered the thrill of stamping and other fun techniques. I was HOOKED!


I couldn't wait to share it with others and started sharing my creations on this blog and scheduled monthly scrapbook nights with my friends. Since then my business has grown, but my focus remains on encouraging people to make time for creating and learning new things. 


My goal with this website is to inspire you to make a date with your craft supplies! Make yourself at home and explore the other tab to find information about scrapbooking, card-making, stamping and other crafts. You will find project ideas, the latest Close To My Heart products, special deals, invitations to events and informaton about my Close To My Heart team.
