Oh my Goodness!
Its been 4 years since I've accessed my blog. YIKES!

A lot has happened in the past 4 years.
Cancer, Puppies, Doctors appointments up the wazu, getting back into life again and so much more!

The good news is I've stayed active with Close To My Heart all this time. And sadly not really creating for myself. So I'm going to try getting back into it again. I've decided to design some "Albums" where you can purchase kits from me, have me cut them for you OR just purchase the directions.

AND I'm starting with Disney Themes!!!

I'm SO EXCITED to be BACK!!!
