L💗Ving Close to My Heart's Seasonal Expressions!

I lo💗e the Seasonal Expressions Idea books that Close to My Heart debuts every four months.  It gives me incentive to create layouts from my favorite papers in each book, so I create more and document my families memories.

Here's a sneak peek of what's coming.

Crisp Summer days, moonlight nights, campfire stories, and good fun.  It'll be arriving soon, so ask your consultant today about her or his launch party for the SE2, but don't forget to grab your favorites from SE1.  Don't have a consultant and you want more information contact me.


Women are the families memory keepers, but we lose our families story within three generations if we do not preserve those stories.  Memory keeping is the best way to tell our families stories and preserve them for future generations.  Id be happy to show you how I preserve my families stories, what products I use and why.
