I just celebrated 5 years as an Independent Consultant and have enjoyed representing a fabulous product line. I have a passion for scrapbooking and have been a memory keeper for nearly 25 years! You'll find me visiting retreat groups, teaching card buffets, hosting day crops, and raising funds for Operation Smile. I'm happy to share my love of all things paper crafty. It's always a pleasure meeting new customers and helping them learn new techniques, and earn free product! You can also find me on Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook. I regularly participate in the Rose Blossom Blog Hop on the 1st and 15th of each month. You'll find myself and other team mates creating artwork meant to inspire and motivate fellow crafters.
