Maryville, TN

I am a Tennessee gal, who grew up in South Florida. I went to Florida State University and graduated with a BSN in nursing. After working for nearly 40 years as a nurse, I retired in 2010 in order to pursue what I really love to do - scrapbooking and paper crafting. I have been using Close To My Heart products for a number of years, and the quality of the products has just amazed me, as has the enthusiasm of the consultants I have met. My husband and I live on a farm with a beautiful view of the Great Smokey Mountains. We have two beautiful grown daughters and 4 rowdy grandchildren, who are the joys of our lives and the reason I started Scrapbooking. My hope is that you will discover the excellence of Close To My Heart products, as I have.
