Rapid City, SD

I {heart} all things crafty. Everything I create, whether it’s paper crafts or tasty treats from my kitchen, is from the heart. There’s something about receiving a handmade gift that seems more appreciated & meaningful. In 2009, I realized that I needed a creative outlet – something to rejuvenate my mind & spirit after managing data all day (zzzzz…). So becoming a Close To My Heart consultant was a perfect fit! I love sharing new ideas & bringing out the creativity in others. Whether you know it or not, we all have a creative side! Conducting workshops is my specialty – cards, wreaths, banners, scrapbook layouts, treat boxes— you name it, I can help you make it. I hope you enjoy what I’ve been Cre8ting from the {Heart}…
