A warm welcome to you, for taking the time to visit my Close To My Heart website. We moved to Te Kowhai/Hamilton area in 2016 and are loving the people here and country living. I have been doing paper crafts for 16 years now and love every minute of it; giving me special time with friends and family. My grandchildren enjoy their time in my craft room too, making cards and mini albums to preserve their memories. How do you preserve yours? At Close To My Heart we bring together friends, the best memories and the best products. At an in-home event you learn all about new and exciting products while spending some crafting time and chatting away with those you care about the most AND earn product credit to purchase products for FREE! just another reason to call me and book your time.
