West Bloomfield, MI

I have been with Close To My Heart for over 19 years and I love to create Scrapbook pages, cards and mini albums. I have presented at the CTMH Annual Convention 12 times and I have earned 16 Incentive Trips to amazing destinations such as New Zealand, Thailand and Tahiti. I joined to buy my own items at a discount but almost 2 decades later I have an amazing team & a fabulous business and I love my job more today than when I first joined in 2003. My business helps to pay our household bills and allows us to take fabulous vacations. It allows me to choose the hours I work so that I can travel back to the UK to see my family. I truly love what I do and if you are interested in becoming an Maker too - contact me and get paid for doing what you love to do :O)
