Welcome to my Close to My Heart business blog! I hope to keep everyone informed and up-to-date on events and products, as well as inspire you to start or keep up with your scrapbooking. I also dabble in card making so you may see some project ideas associated with that but scrapbooking is my passion. Feel free to email me about anything you see on my blog. I love to help and teach so I hope to have the opportunity to do that for you! Happy Scrapping!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast Cancer is something that has affected my life. My best friend's mother (also my mother's best friend) lost her war with breast cancer. She won many battles and fought bravely against a very ruthless opponent. Recently her daughter (my best friend) was married to the love of her life and though she had many friends and family members there to help celebrate her and her day her mother's presence was missed. In memory of JoAn Weddle and in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month I am donating a portion of all my sales for the month of October to Susan G Komen for the Cure because as my best friend's wedding programs said "No daughter should be without her mother on her wedding day." So go PINK! Feel your boobies and save the ta-tas!

Events for this month. There's a free crop on October the 8th at Salem Fields Community Church. I have a room reserved but need a head count. See the event listed on the Facebook Fan page to RSVP.
