I am first of all, a mother to three wonderful children; and a wife to a great husband! We live on a small farm outside Napoleon, Ohio, where I am a first grade teacher.
Probably one of the best decisions I ever made for myself was to start scrapbooking my families’ memories. After years of sleepless nights, changing diapers, potty training, & all the busyness that comes with raising small children, I was more than ready for a hobby! I remember last summer we were shampooing our downstairs carpets & my kids were using it as a slip & slide! I sent them upstairs, and later found them all sprawled out on my bed, each with a scrapbook in hand. They were laughing & talking about each page as they each looked through their baby books. I thought to myself, “Yeah, now this is why I scrapbook!”
In February of 2011, I joined Close to my Heart and became a consultant. Since that time, I have seen my scrapbook pages improve dramatically. The difference between CTMH & other companies is that they really show you how easy each technique is to make your pages beautiful!
I also started Extreme Couponing in June of 2011. It has made a huge difference in our lives financially. We eat better, & don’t have to run to the store every time someone gets sick! Yeah, I guess I am an overachiever! I wouldn’t want life to be any less!
I am thankful to God for loving me in spite of myself & giving me so much to be thankful for. I challenge you to go for your dreams! You never know how high you may reach!
